The Oyster Perpetual Date ref. 1500 is an older-model Rolex that boasts a thicker acrylic crystal, Tritium luminous material on the dial, and an older-generation calibre 3035 perpetual movement. Despite its vintage status, the ref. 1500 maintains a highly reliable reading that it can attribute to the use of a waterproof Oyster case and a COSC-certified movement. The ref. 1500 also maintains an entry-level price that many collectors will find appealing, thanks to the use of brushed stainless steel. If you're in the market for a sophisticated wristwatch that won't break the bank, the Date 1500 is a great option to consider.

I purchased preowned Rolex watch from Bobs watches. I am happy that I find one within my budget.
The watch I purchased was even better in person. Keeps time perfectly and in excellent condition - for a vintage watch, it looks brand new. So happy with this purchase.
The watch was rated a "2" for its condition. I am very happy with the condition of the case, crystal, and dial, and I feel the condition rating accurately described the watch's exterior. Bob's Watches also accommodated my request for a different strap, and shipped very quickly during the holiday weekend. This was an excellent buying experience.
