Now Rolex has been favored by many watch lovers by the self-winding mechanical movement. During the period of the quartz crisis, Rolex launched several perfect fake watches with quartz movement.
In 1971, Rolex released the first quartz watch ref.5100. Since it is equipped with the huge calibre Beta21, the Rolex copy with gold bracelet features a 40 mm case. But Rolex wanted to develop their own quartz movement. Till 1977, Rolex finally launched the quartz movement which was called as Oyster Quartz.
Till 2003, all the quartz Rolex had been discontinued. During the 25 years, Rolex totally manufactured 25,000 quartz watches. This Oystersteel and gold case imitation Rolex Datejust was commonly seen at that time.
