It has been estimated that Rolex only produced about 1,500 Date reference 1530's. This rare timepiece is an important part of Rolex history. A transitional model of sorts, the 34mm Oyster case that accompanies this men's watch was designed specifically to house a Quartz movement. Released a few years before Quartz movements became available, Rolex instead equipped the reference 1530 with a calibre 1570 perpetual movement. The inspiration, however, remains with a case with lines and angles that closely mirror that of an OysterQuartz timepiece. Additionally, the case is paired with a stainless steel integral bracelet, another feature that isn't common among Rolex watches with mechanical movements. A silver tritium dial accompanies this men's reference, adding even further to its collectability and charming design.
