I purchased a Rolex 1500 with a rare blue radial dial.
Can anyone provide any information regarding this type of dial, and whether it is worth for a premium price ?

but I can guess at the dial you are describing. The ref. 1500 is not a "premium" collectable model, and so even the most unusual dial variants do not add very much to the value of a standard "base" dial watch. A nice blue radial dial might add 20-30% to the price of a "normal" ref. 1500; whereas dial variations on steel sports models can more than double the value of the watch...

Thanks Mike for the valuable information. The radial dial make the 1500 watch more sportier look.
I managed to post the watch photo.
