This watch is in excellent condition, with light scratches appropriate for its age. The hands have some wear to them, and the rehaut has some discolouration.

There is no guarantee for water resistance.

Although technically not a Datejust, the 1530 is definitely a fascinating reference. Even though case is instantly recognisable as belonging to an Oysterquartz reference, the watch is actually an automatic, initially created to test the viability of an integrated bracelet case. Discontinued shortly after the launch of the Oysterquartz, the reference is unusual and especially rare, as only an estimated 1500 examples were made.


Known by many simply as "the Crown", Rolex has certainly done much to deserve its reputation. From its founding just over a century ago by a German immigrant in the UK, Rolex has grown to become an international behemoth, recognisable (and indeed visible) across the globe.

Compared to other modern watchmakers, Rolex is in the near-unique position where its vintage watches have developed an almost entirely distinct collector base. It's no surprise, however, given the diversity and iconic status of so many Rolex models. The vintage Rolex community has arguably brought vintage watch collecting into the mainstream by shedding light on the beauty of old, worn watches which had so long been ignored by most.
