The Rolex OysterQuartz Datejust is a product of what many collectors refer to as the "Quartz Crisis" of the 1970s. During this time, the demand for quartz movement watches was at an all-time high and interest in mechanical watches was waning. To keep up with changing trends, Rolex developed the OysterQuartz series, which included a Datejust and Day-Date variation in several metal finishes. The pre-owned Rolex 17000 that is presented here today is the stainless steel reference. Its feature set includes a classic 36mm waterproof Oyster case as well as a date complication on the dial. The case is characterized by more angular lugs and wears on an integral bracelet, giving the ref. 1700 its signature look.
