Rolex Date Gilt Tropical Dial 1501


A Tropical Date With Rolex

The 34mm Rolex watches offer great value for a classic Oyster, especially if they have an unusual element. On this example the black gilt dial has turned a beautiful tropical brown – a stunning twist to this already very cool watch. Early black dialed watches from Rolex feature, what collectors refer to as, gilt dials. The gilt dials feature a glossy finish like a black mirror and when this black paint ages, it can turn brown in unique and unpredictable shades – the tropical effect! The watch retains a strong case and has its original engine turned bezel in very nice condition. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker will come with a 19mm strap of your choice from our webshop*.
