1958 Rolex Oyster Perpetual ref. 1002 with expandable 6635 bracelet
The 20th century is the century of constant competition for achievements, the main questions of the time were: who will be the first man on the moon, who will go to the deepest seas, who will climb the highest mountains? Expeditions were led worldwide to be the first to accomplish these challenges.
Rolex, faithful to its principles and always in search of performance, has known how to associate itself with great historical events. Thus, the Rolex Oyster, the first watch to be waterproof and dustproof, introduces Rolex to the international scene on the wrist of Mercedes Gleitze by becoming the first watch to cross the Channel Sea.
The Oyster Perpetual ref. 1002 keeps all the essence of this achievement in its timeless appearance. It has an ideal size of 34mm for a slim wrist, both for woman or man. It has its original “Swiss” only and COSC dial, sublimated by its dauphine hands and its rare dial with silver dagger indexes. It is a rare and very beautiful watch from 1958, well preserved, which breathes the elegance and classism of the Oyster Perpetual models.
The watch is powered by the reliable, robust and accurate Rolex cal.1570 automatic movement (COSC).
Coming on a riveted elastic oyster bracelet, it is a bold statement for those who actually love vintage watches.
