Introduced in the 1970's the Rolex oyster quartz was special not only because of its remarkable thermo-compensated quartz movement but also its remarkable case design with integral bracelet, a true Gerald Genta inspired design classic.
These watches where produced to the highest standard and quality, actually to a much higher standard than their mechanical counterparts. They were the first Rolex to use a sapphire crystal and the unlike their mechanical brethren where accurate to 5 seconds per month (compared to 5 seconds per day for a similar Rolex chronometer automatic) .The Oyster Quartz range remained in production for 25 years although over that time only 25,000 were produced in total a minute amount by Rolex standards and of that small number it is estimated that less than 1000 were produced in Solid 18ct gold as with this example .
The 36 mm solid 18 ct gold case is fitted to the integral 18ct gold bracelet with hidden clasp .
The original silvered dial is simply decorated with gold baton hour markers and stick hands
A classic watch and one that will represent a great investment opportunity for the future yet remains extremely wearable for any occasion.
