The dial complements both metals and can be silver or gold with applied gold tone hour indexes, baton hands and center seconds. One of the most notable features of the watch is the triple sunk date at the 3 o’clock mark. Above the dial is a plastic crystal with a cyclops magnifier for the date aperture. This vintage Date is predicted to be highly valuable in the near future.

This vintage watch offers a reliable caliber 1570 automatic perpetual movement with 26 jewels. This automatic winding technology allows the user to forego worrying about winding the watch because the movement runs off of perpetual motion. This means that by simply wearing the watch it will be wound. If the watch is left still for too long, however, it will need to be wound. If you wear your Rolex ref 1550 every day or so, you will not have to worry about it. The watch is completed with a luxurious leather strap with a matching yellow gold Rolex “tang” clasp. The Rolex dial, movement and case are all signed.
