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 .This piece dates to c 1978 although you would never guess that from the condition and timeless design .
The 36 mm solid 18ct gold case is fitted to the integral 18ct gold bracelet with hidden clasp and both are in great condition .
The original gold 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.
When you think of a Rolex watch produced in a tiny number and using the very highest technical components available and designed by one of the industries greats I am still amazed at the value these pieces offer the discerning buyer
