Universal, classic, lasting and effortless style. That is how one could best describe the Rolex Oyster Perpetual collection and its smallest model variant, the Oyster Perpetual 26. Today, we look at this charming, yet cool, pink dialed version.
At just 26 millimeters wide, one could say that this is a jewel that tells time – though one doing so would imply ignoring the many impressive engineering feats that set Rolex watches apart from the rest. Still, let us focus on style and aesthetics first.
The Oystersteel case pleases the eye with its gently curved profile, as the case's sides have a highly polished, soft-to-the-touch side. The bezel complements this element with its domed shape and equally high polish, while the top surfaces of the lugs offset their sheen with a brushed finish. It is all about proportions – and that does not just mean dimensions, but surface treatments and colors too.
With its compact, discreet size, the Oyster Perpetual 26 makes for a perfect match for any outfit and any occasion – from formal to the most casual of moments, including a quick dip in the pool or swim in the ocean. With its 100-meter water resistance rating and rugged Oyster case, you may rest assured that your Oyster Perpetual 26 will see no trouble accompanying you wherever you go.
Although the Oyster Perpetual 26 requires the tiniest space on the wrist, its pink dial still manages to stand out. Its 18ct gold hour markers and hands offer excellent legibility even with this compact form factor, while the subtle sunburst finish of the dial add another layer or refinement. The Rolex-rehaut ring, also commonly referred to as the flange ring, serves as a neat, elegant frame for the dial.
Inside the rugged Oystersteel case we find the Rolex Manufacture Caliber 2231, a movement produced in-house by Rolex, including its Perpetual self-winding rotor that allows for a quick and efficient replenishing of the watch's power reserve.
The Oyster Perpetual 26 is a Rolex Superlative Chronometer which means that the its movement has passed the COSC independent chronometer certification tests and that the cased-up watch has passed Rolex's extremely stringent and all-encompassing quality control tests. Consequently, every Oyster Perpetual 26 model has been tested for its water resistance rating, power reserve, self-winding efficiency and accuracy.
Available in a wide range of case sizes and dial colors, we would be delighted to present you the Oyster Perpetual in our Rolex Petite Geneve Petrovic boutiques in Budapest, Belgrade or Porto Montenegro.
