Watches in the Oyster Perpetual range are direct descendants of the original Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch, on which Rolex has built its reputation since 1926. These watches benefit from all the fundamental features of the Oyster Perpetual collection – excellent chronometric precision, a waterproof Oyster case, and self-winding of the movement via a Perpetual rotor. Displaying hours, minutes and seconds, made exclusively of Oystersteel and featuring a sophisticated finish, these are chronometer wristwatches in their purest form.
As forerunners, the Oyster Perpetual models are among the most recognizable in a collection of legendary watches. They have retained their unmistakable aesthetic association with the original Rolex Oysters while evolving with the watchmaking know-how of Rolex.
The Oyster case is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). Its middle case is crafted exclusively from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant Oystersteel. The Oyster case provides the high precision Rolex movement with optimal protection from water, dust, pressure and shocks.
The Oyster Perpetual is available in a range of colours and sizes from 26 to 39 mm : an entire family of different sizes and attractive dial colours for a model that affords full access to the Rolex legend.
The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology. First introduced in the late 1930s, this particularly robust and comfortable metal bracelet with its broad, flat three-piece links remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster collection.
