ROLEX DATE REF. 1501 BLUE DIAL NEW OLD STOCK The Rolex Date was a strong alternative to the classic Rolex Datejust. The Rolex Date reference 1501, like the present specimen, was introduced in the 1960s. It is a classic and elegant timepiece, designed for those who appreciate understated sophistication. The watch typically features the automatic Caliber 1570 or 1565 movement, known for its reliability and precision. The reference 1501 is characterized by its date complication and 34mm case, which is slightly smaller than the more popular Datejust models. The Date was also more affordable, allowing it to reach a wider audience and become one of the best-selling Rolex watches of all time. This size makes it a great option for those with smaller wrists or those who prefer a more vintage, modestly sized watch. Today, vintage Date models are still highly appreciated by collectors, especially when the watch is in such exceptional condition as the present specimen in New Old Stock condition. The present Rolex Date reference 1501 is an exceptionally well-preserved example in new old stock condition. The case remains untouched, as does the bracelet, showing no signs of stretching or polishing. The rare blue dial is pristine, with no indications of hand dismounting or dial removal. The tritium on the hands and dial has gracefully aged to a warm yellowish tone, enhancing the overall patina. The original 1501 sticker still adorns the caseback, further attesting to the watch's exceptional new old stock condition. Every component is correct for its year of manufacture: TswissT blue tritium dial, bezel, caliber, and 78360/557/VE bracelet. This Date model is not your usual find; it's an almost uniquely preserved piece suitable for inclusion in a serious vintage Rolex collection, akin to a museum-worthy artifact. Serial Number 6,208,XXX, Year 1980, Diameter 34mm.
