This 1987 ROLEX OYSTER QUARTZ DATEJUST displays very good condition overall. It is great to place an OYSTERQUARTZ on the wrist, without having to wind or set it. The 36.5mm. stainless steel case and bracelet are very clean after a recent overhaul.Â This bracelet will fit a medium to small wrist at 6 inches. This is an “R” series serial number. The sapphire crystal and wide, fluted bezel look perfect ,as well, the black dial is pristine. This watch has a quickset date feature for ease of setting.Â Â 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.Â The electronic, quartz movement in this watch is VERY finely finished and considered to be the best QUARTZ movement 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.Â We wear an OYSTERQUARTZ as our daily wearer, because they have such a sleek, modern look, are larger than most vintage ROLEX (other than the sports models in the same era) and are very accurate. This battery operated watch is ticking away very accurately. especially due to the BRAND NEW ROLEX $600 motor that was just installed in the (just cleaned) original movement. You won’t have to worry about this watch for many years!
