There is something to be said about a vintage Rolex that was worn often. They usually bring a level of history and character to one's watch box that a newer timepiece simply can't match. If you're in the market for an entry-level vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual that was once a cherished addition to someone's watch box, then the used 1003 that you see here today might appeal to you. Its feature set includes a desirable rivet-link bracelet and a 34mm Oyster case framed by a unique machine-turned bezel. The stainless steel finish is complemented by a matching silver dial, which is adorned with matching silver markers, dauphine hands, and Tritium lume in a handsome patina.

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.
