Catalogue Note

The 1970s have proven to be a tough period for the Swiss watchmaking industry as the quartz technology from Japan have threatened the traditional way of delivering timekeeping. To comprehend with the drastic changes that have happened, Rolex had created their own form of the quartz movement known as the Oysterquartz. The present watch is fitted with a beautifully crafted caliber 5055 that has proven to be a great success at the time, however it was only available until the early 2000s.


Presented with a beautifully kept champagne like gilt dial and complete with all luminous plots, this watch is certainly a piece made for all occasions.
