The men's Rolex Oyster Perpetual ref. 1002 is an older model from the early 1960s. As a vintage reference, the case and bracelet show some signs of wear, which is a desirable feature among many avid pre-owned Rolex collectors. The case is topped with a classic acrylic crystal and features a matching silver dial topped with dagger indices and dauphine hands filled with warm patina lume. The case wears on a five-link Jubilee bracelet that does have some slight stretch, which is to be expected of a watch of this age. Offered in a stainless steel finish, this Oyster Perpetual commands a reasonable entry-level price.

I ordered this watch as a Birthday present for myself, and I couldn’t be more happy! The presentation box and the certification was beyond expectations! The watch itself is gorgeous, I already have couple more bands on the way So yeah, Happy Birthday to me!
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.
