Detailed explanation of ratings
The OysterQuartz was Rolex’s answer to the 1970s “quartz craze”
Introduced in 1977, after five years of research & development, Rolex released their first in-house quartz movement.
Original silver dial with baton indices is the most classic dial combination. Signed “T Swiss T” indicating the use of tritium luminous on the dial. The dial has not been touched and remains in excellent original condition.
Ref. 17000 in stainless steel with smooth bezel. The 5.6 million serial number denotes the year of production to 1978. This reference features a sapphire crystal with a “Cyclops” magnifying the date display and Rolex Oyster Twinlock crown. The case & bracelet have been professionally polished giving the watch a stunning aesthetic.
Original Rolex OysterQuartz bracelet with clasp code B. Bracelets can be resized to fit on request.
