WHY THIS WATCH
Cousin of the DateJust
Introduced in 1950, the Rolex Date is considered the close cousin of the Rolex Datejust (introduced in 1945). These two models were created 5 years apart, and ran alongs-side one another, sharing major updates to the movements and cases. This particular model, the 150XX series, started in 1980 and introduced some refinements to the Rolex Date Lineup.
Quickset Date and High Beat Calibre
This watch features the Rolex 3035 movement which introduced a high-beat frequency of 28,800 vph. Besides being more accurate, a high-beat movement also shows off the signature seconds hands sweep that Rolex is known for. The most important feature of the Rolex 3035 is the Quickset date, which allows the user to set the date via a second position of the crown.
With it's acrylic crystal, lug holes, and raised gold-peg markers, this watch has a ton of vintage charm. You're still getting Rolex 80's build quality, and the quickset date, so it's just modern enough to not be a hassle on the wrist.
On the wrist, this is the perfect uni-sex watch, as watch sizes are coming full circle and both men and women prefer 34-36mm watches. The jubilee bracelet is absolutely the way to go here. It just sits perfectly on the wrist and gives the right amount of contrast. The calibre 3035 just seems bullet-proof, with a still-crisp date change click.
THE LITTLE DETAILS
Serial number on the lugs places this watch from 1981. The watch, including the factory Champagne, Gold Peg dial and crown is all authentic Rolex parts. The watch is in overall good condition, with wear all around, consistent with a 20+ year old watch. Scratches on the case mostly, see pictures. The Jubilee bracelet does have stretch, however this does effect the wearability of the watch. The bracelet will fit a 6.5 inch wrist. Movement is running strong, was serviced 3 years ago, is keeping excellent time, and is free from any mechanical issues. The crystal has been buffed and is clean. The watch does not come with box or papers.
