The Rolex 1315 Caliber...a first for me

Having opportunity to serve a wide variety of vintage Rolex movements through the years, I wanted to show some pictures of this í59 Oyster Date model. Although ii may not be considered a highly collectible piece, itís something special to the family and for me, itís my first acquaintance with a lady size Rolex Caliber 1315 and I was very impressed...

...Impressed, because of all the support this tiny size movement provides and the accuracy it keeps. I say small because the dimensions are 6 ĺ x 8 ligne or 15 mm x 18 mm. Thatís the approximate size of a Dime.


Firstly, this little movement supports a Driving Wheel for the Sweep Hand function

In addition, this movement carries the load of driving a Date Indicator.
A frame work is needed to hold the Date Indicator

And now...add a beautiful blued steel Sweep Hand with Calendar Window
