Rolex Datejust ref. 1630 SS & 18K YG Automatic (Oyster Quartz Case) circa 1977

SOLD

Incredibly rare model Rolex Datejust ref 1630 which is a self winding date model in the Oyster quartz case, a one year only model circa 1977. Featuring a 36mm diameter case with gold fluted bezel, sapphire crystal, and screwdown caseback. Original gold champagne dial with applied indexes and baton hands, and slightly contrasting tone sloped inner minutes track. Case serial # 5.2 million dates this model to 1977.

Powered by self winding chronometer caliber 1570 movement with sweep seconds. With Rolex stainless  and 18K yellow gold integral flat link oyster quartz style bracelet with deployment clasp. Scarce model in remarkably sharp condition. Recently serviced and in excellent operating condition. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

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 modernist design and more geometric formed Oyster case. The OysterQuartz was produced in the Datejust version in steel and steel and gold combo, and in white gold or yellow gold in the DayDate version.

The Oyster Perpetual Datejust version represented here, utilized the Oyster Quartz case, fitted with the caliber 1570 self winding movement, and with the 1630 reference number. With the larger and more geometric case design, and self winding movement, the 1630 is a very popular though little known variation. Will fit a 7 inch wrist.
