Up for grabs is a Rolex Date in steel
15000 reference, 34mm, automatic with quickset date, acrylic crystal
6.7 mil serial number circa 1980 production
This watch came directly from original owner, very complete, and 99% untouched. The only thing that was done before listing for sale was swapping the original scratched up and rashed crystal to a new one.
Excellent vintage condition. The case shows wear and aging, but appears to have original finish and sharp edges on lugs. No corrosion or pitting. Serial and reference numbers are fully intact and clearly visible.
Dial is original, tritium white with Roman numerals. All tritium plots are fully intact and have aged to a nice yellow patina with matching tritium hands. Original date disk with open 6’s and 9’s.
Bracelet is original Rolex 78350 with 13 links (fully linked), 557 ends, and F date code, which is period correct.
Watch comes very complete with original moon crater box (outer sticker stamped 15000), original punched Rolex warranty papers, matching hang tags, manual, translation booklet, Rolex wallet with matching serial number sticker, and Rolex calendar for 1982. The warranty papers were never dated, but it is presumed that this piece was sold in late 1981 or early 1982 based on the calendar year.
