Our Take

This vintage Oyster Perpetual Date Reference 1500 features a gloss black dial. On the wrist, it's a classic, sized comfortably at a mid-size diameter of 34.5mm. It wears a bit smaller than the 36mm Oyster Perpetuals and Datejusts from this era, but it's still plenty versatile across various wrists sizes.

What makes this watch so great is the simplicity. Oyster case, date window with cyclops, and a gloss black dial.

This specific ref. 1500 is in fair to good pre-owned condition, featuring hairline scratches on the case that are typical of regular use. The case appears to be unpolished. Oxidation is present on the hands. The watch has recently undergone a full movement service, including a new mainspring, gaskets, and a new acrylic crystal. It comes with a two-year warranty and a complimentary leather watch pouch.
