The Oyster Quartz movement was introduced by Rolex during the “quartz revolution” of the late 1970’s to compete with the burgeoning Japanese market in quartz movements. Rolex produced their own high quality movement, and outfitted the watch in a much more futuristic and modern motif design, larger and more geometric formed Oyster case. Though not a Gerald Genta design, the modernist angular design with integral bracelet reflects a similar aesthetic as the Royal Oak and Nautilus designs.

Of course guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.
