With the surge of quartz watches in the 1970s, Rolex created a few references which utilized this new technology. One such example is the Rolex Day-Date reference 19018. This unique watch was released in the 1970s and features the rare caliber 5055 quartz movement with 11 jewels. Outwardly, the watch greatly resembles other Day-Dates with a stunning champagne dial featuring the famous day and date apertures as well as gold markers. The watch’s case, made of 18k yellow gold and measuring 36mm, is waterproof thanks to the utilization of a screw down case back and Twinlock crown. The watch is finished off perfectly with a matching gold fluted bezel and integrated bracelet. While the era of the Rolex quartz watch ended in 2001 after about three decades, this watch is still available on the used and vintage Rolex market. In fact, this unique find has been featured in important auctions houses and has become a highly valued watch in the collectors’ market.
