1972 Rolex Date Blue Dial Ref. 1500 (with Certificate & Orig. Invoice )
Blues - The nice thing about small Oysters from the past is that some of them, and we are not speaking about the mass dials, came with very nice and special dial configurations. What we have here is a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Reference 1500 from 1972 with a insanely beautiful blue dial which almost has a glossy finish. The print is silver and so are the minute indexes which on this dial are longer than on conventional dials. Further the baton indexes have an off-white center line standing out together with the perfect Tritium dots and hands, a true feast for the eyes. We haven't seen many of these dials, pictures don't do justice. Further this watch comes with full paperwork including original punched, dated and stamped certificate, booklets, hang tag and original purchase invoice.
