The Rolex 19018 OysterQuartz Day-Date is a fascinating timepiece that was developed by the brand during what many collectors refer to as the Quartz Crisis. During this time, Quartz watches were in high demand, causing the Swiss watch industry to scramble to create their own Quartz watches to keep up with the trend. The OysterQuartz line is a product of that era, offering Datejust and Day-Date variations. Similar to the original Day-Date from the 1950s, the OysterQuartz ref. 19018 features a 36mm Oyster case topped with a classic Rolex dial and set with a jump date and the day spelled out in full. To distinguish it as a Quartz watch, Rolex pairs the case with a three-link integrated bracelet and angular lugs. Offered here at an attractive mid-level price, this gold preowned Rolex is an excellent find for anyone who seeks a unique vintage dress watch.
