While Rolex is known for its impeccably designed mechanical movements, it did delve into the quartz movement in the 1970s and 80s. During this period, the Day-Date reference 19028 was created. This particular reference is one of the few examples of a quartz Rolex and is a rare and valuable find. Known as an Oysterquartz, this watch mimics the look of other Day-Dates with an 18k yellow gold waterproof case. The silver dial contrasts nicely with the yellow gold of the watch, giving it a classic look. However, the real changes are evident inside the watch with the addition of a caliber 5055, 11 jewels quartz movement. Though this is a quartz watch, it still powers the Day-Date’s most important features, its day and date apertures. Both are located on the dial and instantaneously change to reveal the proper day and date for the wearer.
One of the most intriguing features of this 19028 is the pyramid embellishment on the bezel and bracelet.
