The Oyster Perpetual dress watch is a pillar of the Rolex catalog that has been in production since the 1950s. Timeless, elegant, and sophisticated, no luxury watch collection is complete without the addition of one Oyster Perpetual. The ref. 1003 is an earlier-model OP that boasts a stunning vintage feature set. The stainless steel case is topped with a unique machine-turned bezel and wears on a complimentary leather bracelet. This edition of the vintage 1003 displays the time on a stunning silver dial via older-style dauphine hands and index hour markers. The luminous plots have since aged to a beautiful patina, making this ref. 1003 a very desirable collector's item among those who are in-the-know.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
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.
