DIAL
Original blue dial with baton indices

Original blue dial with baton indices. The blue dials are amongst the most sought after variants of the Oysterquartz and have become hard to find especially in this condition. Signed “T Swiss T” indicating the use of tritium luminous on the dial. The dial has not been touched by us and remains in excellent original condition with small signs of age.

CASE
stainless steel case with smooth bezel

Ref. 17000 in stainless steel with smooth bezel. The 5.2 million serial number denotes the year of production to 1978. All Oysterquartz models featured a sapphire crystal with a “Cyclops” magnifying the date display. The case & bracelet have been professionally polished by us giving the watch a stunning aesthetic. The crown is an original Rolex Oyster Twinlock screw down crown.
