The Watch
The Oyster Perpetual has been a fan favourite for decades because of its classic design. The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926 and later became the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  This architecture has formed the heart of all Rolex watches. 
This ref.1003 boasts a beautiful oyster case, with a wonderful engine turned textured bezel, crafted in 14k solid gold. 
Beating away inside the 34mm Oyster Case is the impressive 1570 automatic movement.
This particular 1003, is in fantastic vintage condition. Nothing really quite hits the same as a solid gold Rolex, it is a real pleasure to wear and with smaller case sizes coming back into vogue as the want for elegance on the wrist continues to grow rapidly, it represents a fantastic opportunity for the elegant individual.
