Rolex Date Ref. 1501 “Taupe Dial” Full set
Oh yes, this is a beauty!
The Rolex Date Ref. 1501 is characterized by its distinctive engine-turned steel bezel. It lends a more rugged, sporty aesthetic to the Date. It also makes it wear slightly larger optically, due to the visual weight of the bezel.
But the showstopper here is the dial. A warm tone of grey, leaning towards taupe, with a rich sunburst pattern. The text on this example is white, which completely disappears under certain light. This lends an extremely clean and minimalist look to an already rather clean design.
This Rolex Date is a beautiful and versatile everyday watch from ca. 1970. It comes complete with its original box and papers. A full set that is equally collectible and wearable.
