Reference 1500 is a fun, slightly more compact alternative to a vintage DateJust. Aside from the size difference, you are getting essentially the same watch. Both feature waterproof Oyster cases and the same COSC-certified automatic movement.
The sleek all-stainless case and smooth bezel, with a classic silver dial, add to an understated look that will look great as both an everyday piece or for more formal occasions. The watch comes on a newer Oyster bracelet, giving the watch a more sturdy, modern feel compared to the original riveted bracelet.
