Description

The Rolex 1530 served as the case and integrated bracelet front-runner for the later Oyster Quartz. And what a fabulous design it is, as well as being one of the most robust bracelet designs out there, with the first solid middle links to be found on a Rolex bracelet. But while the Oyster Quartz was uncommon with only 25,000 made, the 1530 with its mechanical movement is significantly rarer still, with estimates of somewhere between 500 and 1,500 made And it was the first ROLEX with a sapphire glas!

There is a story behind a vintage watch.
Besides the obvious fact that traveling down the years,
a watch absorbs the energy of time and history, it often has a significant story to tell, based on the purpose it was originally made for.
