The Oyster Perpetual is known for its timeless and sophisticated style, transcending watch fashion for decades. Vintage Rolex watches such as the ref. 1003 that we have listed here today are still highly desirable among collectors for their elegant vintage style and affordable entry-level price tags. This particular secondhand Rolex pairs a traditional 34mm Oyster case with a slightly more uncommon yellow gold engine-turned bezel. Yellow gold indices mirror the bezel and offer a highly legible reading against the silver dial. As a time-only watch, the Oyster Perpetual omits the date display and utilizes a calibre 1560 perpetual movement.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
I was initially hesitant about ordering my first pre-owned Rolex via Bob's Watches, since I am used to handling and viewing watches in person more often than not before buying. But I'd heard great things about Bob's, so I took a chance. And this watch is gorgeous. It's exactly as described: some light wear on the bracelet and case, but the patina on the dial is absolutely beautiful and the hands and markers are stunning.
