Rolex Oyster Perpetual ref 1005 SS/14K WG circa 1968

SOLD

A beautiful appearance vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual ref# 1005 circa 1968. Featuring a 34mm diameter case with 14K white gold fluted bezel, acrylic crystal, and scarce original grey dial with applied silver indexes and silver baton hands. The dial is in beautiful condition with distinctive thin white enamel tips highlighting the silver dial indexes and matching the white dial printing.

Unlike the more familiar ref# 5500 Airking model, this ref# 1005 features the chronometer rated 1570 calibre movement and the dial reads Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified. The Airking models use the non chronometer rated 1520 movement, bear the Airking name, and lack the SCOC designation.

An especially nice condition vintage man’s model or oversized for a woman offered on your choice of sporty or dressy fine leather or exotic skin strap. Fully serviced and detailed and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
