Case: Solid stainless steel Rolex Oyster case with screw-down back is approximately 34mm excluding the signed Rolex screw-down winding crown; caseback is stamped inside with reference "1007" and dated "I.66"

Bracelet: Original 7205 19mm Rolex Oyster "rivet" bracelet with 57 end links and signed Rolex fold-over clasp dated 2-66; will fit up to approximately a 7" wrist

Movement: Rolex cal. 1560 self-winding automatic movement (26 jewels); Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original silver sunburst dial with applied Rolex logo and beveled/polished hour markers; original handset; solid stainless steel Rolex Oyster case with desirable engine-turned bezel and factory Rolex acrylic crystal; original 7205 Rolex Oyster "rivet" bracelet; Rolex 1560 Chronometer-grade movement

Condition: Very nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age; solid stainless steel case has previously been lightly polished, but remains thick and sharp with minimal wear overall and some of the original brushed finish still visible on the caseback; crisp engine-turned bezel; beautiful original silver sunburst dial with very attractive Tritium lume plots that have aged to a yellow hue (lume plot at 4 o'clock has aged to a darker color); original Tritium hands with all luminous material in tact and matching; clean factory Rolex acrylic crystal; nice original 7205 Rolex Oyster "rivet" bracelet

Other: The vintage Rolex market is on absolute fire right now and for obvious reasons, but this gorgeous 34mm Oyster Perpetual is proof that you can still get a nice vintage Rolex watch at a very affordable price point. In simple terms, it's difficult to imagine a more reliable watch coming from any other brand (or a better place to park your cash for that matter). This reference 1007 is particularly striking with its cool engine-turned bezel and shimmering silver sunburst dial. It wears extremely well on the wrist at 34mm and on its original 7205 Rolex Oyster "rivet" bracelet. Ryan Gosling daily wears a 34mm vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch on rivet bracelet and that's good enough for us...
