The Watch

Rolex Datejusts and Oyster Perpetual Dates are some of the most sought after Rolex models. These watches can be essential to any type of collection, and for many, they're exactly what people think of when they imagine a Rolex.

Here we have a ref. 15010, dating from 1981, an early example of the Oyster Perpetual Date that houses a Quickset Automatic Calibre 3035 which was first introduced in 1980. On the wrist, it's a watch that will look as good today as it does fifty years from now.

Sized at the less common 34mm diameter, the 15010 is just above the alternative Oyster Perpetual sizing of 31mm, and just below the famed 36mm sizing of the classic Datejust. In this regard, the watch presents as an ideal everyday option for someone who is looking for a top-class everyday Wristwatch.

The Engine Turned bezel and Roman Numeral Dial really are things to write home about; they are fantastic.
