Very Rare Men's Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Florentine Finish 18k Yellow Gold With 18k Yellow Gold Bracelet ref.1502 made in 1953-1963.The watch is in a fully working order and is in good condition, with surface scratches that are to be expected on any watch of this age.
Textured bezels are the somewhat miscellaneous category of stationary bezels that includes a relatively large number of atypical designs that were most frequently used on Day-Date watches and precious metal variants of the Datejust. Most commonly craft from gold, textured bezels often have their textures mirrored on the bracelets of their accompanying watches, and most frequently appear on limited, ornate iterations, or those that were manufactured as a special order.
The 'Florentine' finish is achieved by beating gold with a diamond-tipped tool which leaves permanent faceted dents in the surface. These indentations give each piece an eye-catching, contemporary sparkle.
At the heart of this watch is a legendary automatic high grade movement calibre 1560, on 26 jewels.
This model features a original beautiful gold dial with gold color hour markers, signed "Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date" , "Superlative chronometer officially certified", "T Swiss T ". Yellow gold hours, minutes, and a central second hands, also date at 3 o'clock.

The winding crown is completely original and correctly signed with the famous “Rolex” logo.
