Rolex Oyster Perpetual

12:16 PM

A direct descendent of the first waterproof wristwatch patented by Rolex in 1926, the Oyster Perpetual model is a no frills throwback to a simpler time in watchmaking. The current model is offered in five different sizes (26mm, 31mm, 34mm, 36mm and 39mm), but only available in 904l stainless steel with an Oyster bracelet and a domed bezel.

Photographed above with a blue dial, the 39mm Oyster Perpetual is equipped with a 3132 movement manufactured by Rolex in-house. The 36mm and 34mm sizes come with a 3130 movement and the 31mm and 26mm versions with a 2231 movement, all with approximately 48 hours of power reserve.

The clean aesthetic and limited functionality of this model make it stand apart from the more popular Rolex professional models. This wristwatch is designed to tell the time clearly and precisely - and that's it. The 39mm model is available with a dark rhodium dial, the blue dial shown above and also with a red grape sunray dial.

All Oyster Perpetual models feature an Oyster case that is waterproof up to 100 meters and made from a solid block of 904l stainless steel. The 2015-2016 suggested retail price for the 39mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual is 5,400 Swiss Francs, or approximately $5,626 US.
