18ct gold and steel Rolex Oysterquartz watch reference 17013
A brief history on the Rolex Oysterquartz:
The Rolex Oysterquartz was produced not only for a mere twenty-five years, but less than 25,000 were ever made which in the watch industry is a relatively low number.
First produced in 1972, it came in a few variants with the datejust models in either all stainless steel version (reference 17000), stainless steel and yellow gold (reference 17013), or stainless steel and white gold (reference 17014). Then they produced the President version with the day and date function, in solid 18 carat gold (reference 19018) or in 18 carat white gold (reference 19019). Rolex also made an unusual model, the reference 19028 Day Date Oysterquartz that has a pyramid design detail on the hour markers, bezel as well as the bracelet.
The Oysterquartz Datejust has the Rolex calibre 5035, and the Day-Date version the Rolex calibre 5055.
