I have it from a dealer in vintage watches that the quartz is one of the less popular models though quite rare by production numbers. I just bought one of the first produced in like new condition and paid 2500USD for it with a similar warranty. My friend told me dealers usually look to buy them at anywhere from 1500 to 2000 USD or less depending on condition, eye appeal and rarity. Enjoy your watch as I hope to enjoy mine.

My first Rolex is OQ 17014 in mint condition...
I will be receiving it this weekend and I can't wait and I can't get the smile off my face.

Here're some of the seller's pics...

Can anyone tell me what is the correct battery style for 17013?
The data shows UCAR 357. Besides this style number, what other battery I can purchase and use on 17013?

Thanks

Not sure, but many RSCs still honour the free replacement battery installation service that was promised by Rolex to buyers of new OQs. Have you tried in Taipei?

Hi Adam;
Thanks! I think Taipei RSC still offer the free battery replacement service.
Someone says the correct one is SR344.

However, if we check the battery chart on the google, the SR44W is equivalent‎ to UCAR 357. I have no any clue but confuse. Hope someone can give me the answer.

Thanks

Power cells 357,303, or SR44W will support the 5035 Caliber needs.
As an aside, there were a few quartz watch movements I enjoyed working with. My personnel favorites were the Accutron tuning fork movements and the Rolex Oyster quartz movements.

Forgot to add mine here. It's a 5.2 mill serial, which is the earliest OQ serial I have come across.

question for the OQ fans....does the OQ bracelet seem more scratch-prone compared to the oyster bracelet?

i ask because it seems like each individual link has more surface area.

I haven't had mine long enough to say, really, but for a 37 year old bracelet it is in very good condition, and perhaps more importantly, still very tight. Comfortable, too.

I would agree that it's more scratch prone, but BECAUSE it is flat, it's much easier to restore the finish on. Whether or not they have more surface area is debatable. Relative to a rounded Jubilee - maybe. Relative to an Oyster - I would disagree.

Hi,

I'd say no to that, I think. I owned an Oyster Petpetual Datejust in yellow Rolesor with a Jubilee bracelet for about four years, and have now owned an Oysterquartz Datejust in white Rolesor with the Jubilee-type integral bracelet for about a year and a half. And in that time, the OQ has collected almost no scratches, whereas the OP definitely was building up a fine patina (mainly on the polished lugs and centre links) by then. The all-brushed nature of the case and bracelet of the OQ definitely helps I think. Normal daily scratches either seem not to happen, or are so small that they blend in with the brushed case and aren't really visible.

WOW how perfect is this. I was just looking at a watch to commemorate my birth year 1980. I was considering the WG,YG oyster quartz. I really like the look of the case. Looks like a knife edge. Bracelet also looks fantastic on the 19019.

Thank you for posting this information on this watch. Now to educate myself.

Any other model idea's for 1980? I wouldn't mind knowing if anything special came out that year.

I was browsing this thread and noticed the OQ has a rapid date change.

I just acquired a 17013 and the date change is not rapid, instead it takes around 2 hours, from 11ish to 1 ish.

Is this something I should be concerned about? Is this indicative of the watch needing servicing/containing a franken-movement?

Thanks

Could be in need of a service, but if it is keeping good time (around two seconds a month) I wouldn't worry.

Hi,

My previous Oysterquartz, a ref. 19018 Day-Date, had a problem pretty much exactly like this. At around 00:00, the date window would actually get blanked out completely, and the day indicator would get stuck between two days. And then gradually, completing sometime around 02:00 to 03:00, the date would re-appear, and the day would be the full correct day. It took a trip to the RSC to get it sorted.

Although amusingly (though I wasn't amused at the time !), it actually came back with that problem fixed, but with a whole new one courtesy of Rolex. It now changed sharply at midnight with the date advancing correctly, but jumped two days at a time. So (for example) it would go from Monday 1st to Wednesday 2nd to Friday 3rd, and so on. Quite how the RSC missed that who knows, but anyway, back to the RSC it went, and then it came back properly fixed.
