Here is a fantastic and rare, all original Rolex Oyster Perpetual from 1971. The silver Shantung dial is in excellent condition, with a steel Rolex crown at 12 o’clock and barely any marks. It has faceted steel hour markers with lume dots at the outer ends. The baton hands with the original lume are in very fine condition.


The engine turned stainless steel bezel is in very fine condition, with light overall wear. The stainless steel case with the original screw down crown is in very fine condition with only light overall wear. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition with a few small marks and scratches.


The original Oyster bracelet is in very fine condition, showing light wear and little stretching. It is big enough for large wrists. Make sure the specific bracelet size listed in the details fits your wrist as finding spare links for old bracelets is very difficult.


Inside the watch, Rolex’ high grade 1570 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-8 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in September 2023 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Shantung or woven silk dial on this watch makes it immensely attractive, and when combined with the engine turned bezel and overall great condition you have a real treasure of a watch on your hand. This is a watch that will add to any collection and it will make its next owner very happy indeed.


Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.


NB! Note that we are based in Switzerland and that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
