Comes in a Nice Box & Authentication CertificateThe Rolex 1530 served as the case and integrated bracelet front-runner for the later Oyster Quartz. And what a fabulous design it is, as well as being one of the most robust bracelet designs out there, with the first solid middle links to be found on a Rolex bracelet. But while the Oyster Quartz was uncommon with only 25,000 made, the 1530 is significantly rarer still, with estimates of somewhere between 500 and 1,500 made.While Oyster Quartz had a lovely silver dial, it had no patina to speak of, apart from the aged hour and hand tritium fill. In fact, it looked like it had just come our of the showcase. And our developing purist eyes had an issue with that.
Meanwhile, the 1530 has a gorgeous, and soft, yellowing sheen to its dial, giving us that aged patina that we now insist every vintage piece in our collection must have. Lastly, the particularity of the two piece dial – the outer angled dial particularly – seduced us utterly, bestowing depth and terrific pull to the 1530 when you do things like, um, consulting for the actual time . People who have a ROLEX 1530 are left with a piece they will never trade in or sell. It’s special, rare and beautiful. And it’s the Rolex 1530, folks.

We sense this special, rare & gorgeous ROLEX AUTOMATIC watch will make someone a very special present, and/or addition to their precious watch collection. This watch will also provide a certain financial investment as fewer and fewer watches of this standard come to the market. Our asking price is well below the true value of the watch, given the continual rise in value of fine watches of this quality.
Everything in perfect condition ... This watch is in excellent overall condition, clearly having been cherished and NEVER BEEN worn. The case and dial look great and the movement runs strongly, keeping daily time within a few seconds. Please look at the photographs, which are highly magnified and provide a very clear indication of the condition of this lovely watch. ROLEX is signed on the dial, movement and as with all of our watches, shows clearly the authenticity.
