Every quartz Rolex reference

While the Oysterquartz does have its followers, quartz Rolexes in general don't seem to get a ton of love. Many are unaware of the original Beta 21-powered quartz model (the 5100), and the quartz Cellini range is widely ignored.

In fact, I've noticed that many watch collectors strongly associate the Cellini line with quartz. As far as I can tell, though, they only ever made 9 quartz Cellini references, and they all start with 61 or 66.

Here's my attempt to list all of Rolex's quartz references; let me know if I've forgotten any:

Beta 21 Quartz 5100 (available in yellow or white gold)

Oysterquartz (16 models) 17000, 17013, 17014, 19018, 19019, 19028, 19038, 19048, 19049, 19058, 19068, 19078, 19148, 19158, 19168, 19188

Cellini (9 models) 6110, 6111, 6621, 6622, 6623, 6631, 6633, 6681, 6691

I already mentioned the 6691 (diamond bezel) but I left out the 6692 (diamond lugs) and 6693 (diamond bezel & lugs):


Similarly, I already mentioned the 6681 (diamond bezel) but neglected the 6682 (diamond lugs) and 6683 (diamond bezel & lugs):

6671, 6672, and 6673:


And the quirky 6651:

Thanks Rob, yet another sterling effort!

I didn’t know they’d ever made Octopussy bracelet OQs like those 19168s, they’re … quite something!

All those hooded-lug Cellinis are, to my eyes, among the ugliest pieces ever from the mother ship.
