ROLEX OysterQuartz Datejust 17000 White Roman

Item Number: ROLEX157

$9,185.20 AUD

Oyster Quartz Datejust quartz watch, which is extremely rare among many Rolex models.

A model released in 1977 with an in-house quartz movement to compete with Seiko's quartz watches that have swept the world.

Oyster Quartz Datejust was produced until 2001, and there is a record that a total of 25,000 pieces were produced together with the Day-Date produced at the same time.

It is one of the very few watches produced by Rolex, producing less than 1,000 watches every year.

The most important feature is the sporty design with a case with a prominent edge and an integrated bracelet.

Like the Royal Oak that appeared in 1972, Nautilus in 1976, and Ingenieur, it looks very similar to a watch called luxury sports.

This Ref.17000 is the most standard combination of stainless steel case and bracelet, and the bezel is a plain bezel without decoration.

The bracelet is equipped with a triple type oyster bracelet 17000 which is different from 17013/17014.

Oyster Quartz The design that can be said to be the sportiest watch in Datejust.

The case size is 36mm (maybe due to the design of the joint with the bracelet), but it seems to be a little more voluminous than the actual value.

The dial has a slightly smaller Roman index on the white dial. Applied (typesetting) index in silver color, not printed.

This was overhauled at Rolex Japan in 2017, and the crown was replaced at that time, so it is in a state where daily use can be done with confidence.

Also, from the condition of the case and bracelet, It seems that it was stored in a state where it was hardly used.

A box, service warranty, and repair statement are included.

The bracelet has 12 frames. It can be installed up to 18.5 cm.

It will be handed over after the battery is replaced. After replacing the battery, it will be guaranteed for one year.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
