1978 Rolex Datejust Oysterquartz


This 1978 Rolex Datejust Oysterquartz is all original and quite clean. It is great to place an Oysterquartz on the wrist, without having to wind or set it. The 36.5mm 14k solid-gold and stainless steel case is without any major dings or flaws. The sapphire crystal and wide fluted bezel is clean. The gold-toned original dial looks perfect. This watch has a quick-set date feature for ease of setting. Rolex was known to manufacture these watches with the highest tolerances; in fact, the Oysterquartz was built to the highest tolerances of all watches Rolex made in this era. The electronic quartz movement in this watch is very finely finished and considered to be one of the best Quartz movements ever produced. Only the Rolex manual winding 1530, which preceded this watch for a very short time, utilized this same case and bracelet. I have never found an overly stretched bracelet on an Oysterquartz, as they are built so finely. We wear an Oysterquartz as our daily wearer, because they have such a sleek, modern look and are larger than most vintage Rolex watches (other than the sports models in the same era) and are very accurate. This battery operated Rolex watch is keeping time very accurately.
