Rolex Date Ref. 15000 Full set

This ref. 15000 Rolex Date is the epiphany of a clean, subdued, and ultra-versatile watch. If you were to live the rest of your life with one single watch, you could do a whole lot worse than this!

There is something timeless about the combination of an Oyster bracelet, smooth bezel, and silver dial. It is just so clean and minimalist, without being boring. It is a sporty aesthetic, but will not look out of place in more formal situations with more formal attire.

The same goes for the size. Measuring in at 34mm, this watch is perfect for both men and women. While some guys, used to oversized watches, may need a moment to adjust to the size, it is by no means undersized or un-manly. It is quite simply perfect for all occasions.

This beautiful example is livened up by the vanilla-colored tritium. It comes complete with the original box and papers. In short: a full set do-it-all watch. Very nice!

Backstory

The Rolex Date line is perhaps a bit of a hidden gem. Overlooked by the male audience when fashion dictated watches should be big in the early 2000s. Now that the trends are leaning towards smaller again, they are being rediscovered as a pretty great size for both men and women. Of course, there are smaller sizes available as well, but the 34mm is the most common.

Rolex launched the 36mm Datejust and the 34mm Air King in 1945. About a decade later, the Date was added as a sort of in-between model. The same 34mm Oyster case as the Air King, but with the addition of a date and cyclops like the Datejust.

So what you have here is a watch that is technically the same as a Datejust, but since its smaller size scares off some of the potential buyers, it is much more affordable. So if you are confident wearing a subtle size like this (if you are not, come and try one on. You will be converted) this is a real sweet spot in the vintage Rolex market!

The Date comes in tons of variations. From rare early models with gilt dials and dagger hands, to super minimalist silver dial, oyster bracelet examples. You can have your pick of materials, colors and bracelets. There is surely a version that will speak to you!
