1984 Rolex Oysterdate Manual
A stainless steel Rolex Oysterdate, manually wound watch with beautiful, original, black dial. This watch is a classic, and to all intents and purposes the same as the Perpetual Date to look at. Both watches come in at 34mm in width, both have the date window at the 3 o'clock position, same hands and dial layouts. The only real distinguishing features are the slightly thinner case (no need to incorporate the winding rotor) and no Perpetual on the dial. The dial itself is a beautiful, and more unusual matte black with white applied serif printing. All of the original Tritium lume plots are present, and have toned into a warm café latté color. The same can be said for the hands. They present well under UV, and are both original to the watch.
The serial number for the watch is 8,498,XXX dating it circa 1983. The stainless steel case is in good condition showing light signs of polishing over the years. The movement inside the watch is the manual wind Rolex caliber 1225. The watch is presented on its original Rolex Oyster bracelet with date code having also been made just later than the watch in 1985, but period correct, and perhaps just a delayed production model. A classic piece of Rolex watch making history that is a great watch to wear day and night.
Case measurement: 34mm
