About this watch

Vintage Rolex OysterDate Precision, 1955. This black pearl of a watch has all the elegance you could hope for from a classic 1950s Rolex. And it’s rare to find one in such lovely original condition.

This exemplary timepiece is in beautiful order from its stylish black dial – still in excellent, untouched condition – to its replacement crocodile band with new Rolex buckle. There are no major marks or dents, just the signs of light and careful use. It’s still keeping excellent time too.

A little history: the pioneering Rolex Oyster waterproof marque had been launched back in 1926. Our 1955 OysterDate Precision would have arrived on the market soon after the Rolex Oyster featured in the conquest of Everest (1953), cementing the marque’s connection with extreme environments and human achievement. This was also an early outing for the cyclops magnifying lens over the date, a feature introduced in the very same year (1955).
