Signed Rolex, Oyster Perpetual, Date, Superlative Chronometer Official Certified, the present watch is a spectacular example of reference 15200 for a watch lover. The word Oyster was firstly used by Rolex in 1926 when they created the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch and moreover the word Perpetual was fundamental because gave enormous fame to the brand with the crown since its was the first watch with an automatic movement. This very beautiful 15200 not only is an automatic watch with a waterproof case but also an object which also combines a magnificent style and design. The bezel resumes the same style as the bracelet and is optimally preserved as its tonneau case in Steel. The silver satin finish dial is very uncommon to find while the large window for the date at 3 o’clock with the cyclops lens breaks the balance of the shape of the dial with its massive numbers. With the typical width of the ’70s, period in which the timepiece has been manufactured, this watch is perfectly matching the request of a costumer in search of a beautiful and sporting object.
