Additional information:

The Rolex Oysterquartz is a special watch in the line of Rolex wristwatches because it features a quartz movement unlike the mechanical movements found in the rest of Rolex watches. This watch is indeed a unique feature of the Rolex profile as the company was never interested in making quartz watches. However, the increasing demand for these watches made Rolex participate in the making of reliable quartz movements. Total production of Oyster Quartz comprises only 2 % of the overall production of Rolex watches. Though it is out of production since 2001, the Oyster Quartz model remains special in Rolex’s history.
