Like the vintage Tudor watches, the reason the Oysterdate is one of the least expensive genuine Rolex pieces is down to its movement. The range, which started life in the 1950s and was still featured in the brand’s lineup until as recently as 1989, have always been manually-wound models. That makes them a distinct rarity for the company that invented the automatic, self-winding mechanism, known as the Perpetual. In addition, all four of the Oysterdate references were fitted with non-chronometer certified calibers—meaning they had not passed the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute’s (COSC) tests for accuracy and resilience. As such, the Oysterdate wore the ‘Precision’ text on its dial, rather than the ‘Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified’ we are more used to seeing.
So the Oysterdate was very similar to one of the biggest names, not just in Rolex’s canon, but in horology in general; the Datejust. But as well as having a different type of movement, the Oysterdate was also smaller, coming in at 30-34mm versus the traditional 36mm of the Datejust. And, in keeping with its entry level status, it was only ever available in stainless steel, whereas Rolex’s dressier pieces often appeared in all kinds of precious metals.
