The Oyster Perpetual is named after its two main functions: a waterproof Oyster case and a self-winding perpetual movement. The movement and waterproof case are Rolex inventions that changed the way the world looks at watchmaking in general. The vintage men's ref. 1003 that we have here today represents the era in which the Oyster Perpetual first came to market well with a subtle stainless steel 34mm Oyster case and a matching silver dial. An engine-turned bezel frames the case, giving this pre-owned Rolex immense character. The dial is topped with older-style hour markers and dagger hands.

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.
