Description

The Rolex reference 1002 is the perfect representation of how ahead of times was Rolex at the time. It is true that this model came in different variations, but producing a two-tone case is not only rare, but also desirable. This model features a solid stainless steel mid and back case, while having a solid 14k yellow gold bezel.

That being said, this Rolex reference might be more desirable to some because of its inside mechanism, the Rolex caliber 1560. There were two variations produced of this caliber, one with the butterfly rotor and one with a standard rotor. The butterfly rotor ones were fitted to earlier models, this caliber is shared with the Rolex Submariner 5512 or the Explorer 1016. We shall go ahead and say that this watch is worth it not only because the aesthetics, but also for its movement.
