Following the 1970s trend to go quartz, Rolex responded by introducing the Oysterquartz, which had all of the excellent Rolex qualities coupled to a highly complicated and market leading quartz movement. The design was by Gerald Genta. Produced with an in-house movement from 1977 until 2001, it is widely accepted that 25,000 Rolex Oysterquartz watches (steel, steel and gold, gold) were produced, making this model comparatively rare. Oysterquartz provide a great vintage look and we at Vintage and Prestige love these watches.
