More about Rolex 17013 Oyster Quartz Slate Dial Diamond Markers 18k / SS

This is a stainless steel and yellow gold Rolex Datejust OysterQuartz 17013.

It's water resistant, and the 13.5mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. The quartz automatic Rolex caliber 5035 OysterQuartz movement is rhodium plated. It's constructed with 11 jewels, it's adjusted to temperature with analog thermocompensation, and it has a 32 khz oscillator.

This Rolex Datejust OysterQuartz 17000 was introduced in 1977. It required five years of engineering, development, and testing, and was the company's first completely in-house quartz movement. It ended its nearly 25-year run in 2001, and it remains one of the rarest regular production Rolex watches.
