If you're in the market for a stainless steel Rolex on an integrated bracelet, the OysterQuartz Datejust ref. 17000 that is listed for sale here today is a rare opportunity to add one to your collection. The OysterQuartz line is equipped with an in-house quartz movement and is the result of Rolex's attempt to keep up with a growing demand for quartz watches during the 1970s. The OysterQuartz line maintained several aspects of the traditional Datejust watch in the form of a waterproof Oyster case and a date mechanism on the dial. The main difference was that the case was much more angular and wore on an integrated bracelet that was exclusive to the OysterQuartz line. This particular preowned Rolex utilizes a distinctive integrated bracelet design with thicker links that are reminiscent of the classic Oyster bracelet.
