Auctions: Sir Michael Caine’s Rolex Oysterquartz Is The Watch I Didn’t Know I Needed

The Oysterquartz is one of two watches the actor is most frequently associated with, the other being his similar-looking yellow-gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date President that can be seen in 1971’s Get Carter on a leather strap, and in 1972’s Sleuth on its matching President bracelet.

Caine’s Oysterquartz looks to be in overall great shape. At the time this story was published, there were no exact condition notes listed on the Bonhams site, but you can tell that the case and bracelet have remained clean over many years of wear. You’ll notice a few chips on the crystal at six o’clock, as well as a couple discernible blemishes around the fluted bezel, but otherwise, it looks to be an excellent example of an off-the-beaten path Rolex.
