It’s just an ideal pairing — my 1980s cricket jumper that I bought in Guildford, together with RJ’s 1977 luxury replica Rolex Datejust Oysterquartz ref. 17013 watches in steel and gold. My word, what a perfect vintage set. Whoever still thinks that quartz watches have no soul, please look again. I like the watch because of its edgy shape and, yes, also because it’s the icing on the cake — the cherry on top of my outfit, I mean. And since I put the Oysterquartz on my wrist with style in mind, I might as well stay in the watch/fashion vein. The Zenith × Fusalp and Denham × Timex collaborations are two new partnerships between watch and fashion brands, a continuing and growing trend.

Don’t expect a lengthy epistle about the history of the cheap Rolex Oysterquartz replica watches.

What I found very interesting is that the watch’s muscular, edgy looks are very modern. If Rolex were to reintroduce the Oysterquartz in a slightly updated case, it would be an instant competitor in the very competitive segment of luxury sports Rolex copy watches for sale with integrated bracelets. It would be giving the Genta-designed market leaders a run for their money. Speaking of Gérald Genta, the Oysterquartz does look a lot like a Genta design. But is it?

According to respected Rolex scholar James Dowling, the predecessor of the Oysterquartz was indeed a Gérald Genta design. Dowling believes that it was Genta who was responsible for the Beta 21-powered perfect replica Rolex ref. 5100 watches (also known as “the Texan”), the Crown’s first quartz watch. But our own Brandon Baines doesn’t agree, as you can read in his article about Rolex’s “Nautilina”. What is also interesting is that the first Oysterquartz debuted in 1977, and Rolex only stopped producing these Swiss made Rolex fake watches — which came in several variations but all with an in-house quartz movement — in 2002.
RJ’s AAA super clone Rolex Datejust Oysterquartz ref. 17013 watches in steel and gold is outfitted with the caliber 5035, a chronometer-certified quartz movement that came out in 1977. The movement includes 11 jewels and a 32khz oscillator, and it took Rolex five long years to develop. There was also a Day-Date version at the top of the Oysterquartz pyramid. All iterations are stunning 1:1 wholesale Rolex replica watches because of their angular-meets-round shape that later served as a source of inspiration for the Tudor North Flag. Furthermore, none of the Oysterquartz models have lost their appeal over time.
And the good thing is, if you also believe that quartz Rolex fake watches shop have a soul, the vintage Oysterquartz is not as unreachable as a golden oldie Perpetual model. I found a particularly nice two-tone Oysterquartz ref. 17013 with a gold dial on Chrono24 for €5,400, but prices start even lower than that. Could you fall in love with a vintage quartz Rolex?
