High Quality Oyster Quartz Datejust Rolex Watch

We have introduced so many Rolex watches with automatic movement. After all, the “Oyster Perpetual” label given to most of Rolex’s models refers to the waterproof Oyster case and the perpetual (automatic) movement. However, the Swiss watch-making giant was not immune to the so-called “Quartz Crisis” of the sixties, seventies and eighties. As a matter of fact, the replica Rolex most definitely jumped on the technology bandwagon. Let’s get a closer look at the vintage Oyster quartz Datejust Rolex watch and discuss why Rolex produced a handful of quartz watches.
While today many watch fans look at quartz watches with disdain, in the 1960s this technology was heralded as a significant innovation in the industry. Actually, 20 top Swiss watchmakers, including the likes of replica Patek Philippe, Omega, and Rolex, joined forces to establish Centre Electronique Horloger (CEH) consortium with the objective to create a Swiss quartz movement they could all use. The result was the Beta-21 quartz movement introduced in 1969. 
The Rolex produced this luxury model to house the new movement. However, it wasn’t long before Rolex decided that they could make an even better quartz caliber in-house and the company abandoned the CEH in 1972. After five years of intense research and development, Rolex finally unveiled a pair of manufacture quartz calibers: Caliber 5035 for the Oyster-quartz Datejust and the Caliber 5055 for the Oyster-quartz Day-Date. While the Oyster-quartz Day-Date replica watches were available in yellow and white gold, the Oyster-quartz Datejust collection provides a choice of full stainless steel, stainless steel with a white gold bezel, and two-tone yellow gold and stainless steel—like we see here.
Like all Oyster-quartz Datejust watches, the fake model features an outstanding angular case and an integrated bracelet. We’ve seen this familiar shape before, as it was the must-have silhouette of the 1970s, first introduced by Audemars Piguet with their groundbreaking Gerald Genta-designed Royal Oak sports watch.
Different from the other Oyster-quartz Datejust watches, however, the Rolex includes 18k yellow gold details. To begin with, there’s the fluted yellow gold bezel on top of the 36mm case along with the yellow gold winding crown. This is followed by two yellow gold links threading through the Jubilee-style integrated steel bracelet. We have to mention that while on paper the Oyster-quartz Datejust case measures 36mm, it wears larger thanks to its angular design. All this comes together for a great retro Rolesor Rolex fake watch that is oh-so seventies glam.
One of the first things you’ll notice if you wear a replica Rolex Oyster-quartz is how loud it ticks—particularly compared to its mechanical movement powered siblings. This is of course owing to the quartz caliber working away within the case.
