FS: Rare Rolex ref. 1003 from 1960

Hi guys
I reluctantly put for sell a very special watch that I love, a minimalistic vintage gem that in my opinion can be considered the quintessence of elegance, class, and the true vintage spirit.
This Rolex Oyster Perpetual is everything you should need in a classy watch: discretion, with its sober dial and its 34mm oyster case; elegance, with its minimalistic style. Reliability, with its fantastic 1560 automatic movement in stunning conditions; value, considering that this black dial is a very very very rare gem in this Rolex production. If you look in the entire web you'll find just another similar item, but absolutely not at the price I will ask for.
This watch comes directly from 1960 (serial number 663xxx), with its mint conditions (look for example at the perfect stainless steel Oyster rivet bracelet) - there are just some minor signs on the plastic glass - can be a watch to use or to keep safe. Great for everyday life, or for collector's life.

Now, to summarize:

MODEL: Rolex Oyster perpetual
REF: 1003
SERIAL NUMBER: 663xxx - from 1960
MOVEMENT: Rolex 1560 perfectly working
CONDITION: this is an almost 60 yo watch in stunning conditions!
BRACELET: authentic Rolex stainless steel Oyster rivet w/ Fliplock clasp
OTHER: no box no paper, but this gem comes with an elegant vintage green velvet case

Now it's time to give this beauty some space:

PRICE: For this vintage Rolex my asking price is 3400€ (excluding shipping and Paypal fees). Please consider that for the only one available online the asking price is 4000€. This is the lowest price for this rare gem.
PAYMENT METHOD: Bank wire is ok, Paypal is ok (+4% because of fees)
REFERENCES: Please ask me for references!
LOCATION: item is located in Italy

I am very reluctant to sell this outstanding watch, but I hope that a true lover can enjoy it for the next decades! Thank you guys, thank you Chronotrader.
