Rolex presents the new generation of its Oyster Perpetual watches with a new model in the range as well as vivid colours on the dials.
This year, Rolex introduces brand new creations in its Oyster Perpetual collection. In particular, the brand’s Oyster Perpetual range is enhanced with a new model, the Oyster Perpetual 41, as well as new versions of the Oyster Perpetual 36 displaying dials in vivid colours.
For the former, Rolex has just released two versions of the Oyster Perpetual 41 with different dials. The first is a silver, sunray-finished dial, which is graced with hands and hour markers in 18 carat yellow gold. The second version in the Oyster Perpetual 41 line is introduced with a bright black, sunray-finished dial, along with hands and hour markers in 18 carat white gold.
Meanwhile, aside from the Oyster Perpetual 41, the Swiss watch brand also unveiled the Oyster Perpetual 36 with a dynamic and a vibrant new look. This time around, the watch comes with lacquer dials in five different new colours, namely candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral red and green.
At a glance, we can see that the light reflections on the sides of these two models highlight the elegant profile of the Oyster case, which is made from a particularly corrosion-resistant alloy called Oystersteel.
Mind you, the Oyster case of the Oyster Perpetual 41 and Oyster Perpetual 36 is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. This waterproof Oyster case provides optimum protection for the watch’s movement, while still showcasing robustness as well as elegance.
Up front, both the the Oyster Perpetual 41 and Oyster Perpetual 36 are fitted with domed bezels. To top it off, the new generation of the Oyster Perpetual models also feature Chromalight displays, which means that the hands and hour markers are coated or filled with a luminescent material that emits a long-lasting blue glow in low-light conditions.
Moving on to the inside, both of the Oyster Perpetual 41 and the new versions of the Oyster Perpetual 36 are equipped with the calibre 3230 – a movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex – launched this year. Not only does this self-winding mechanical movement offer fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability, it also incorporates the Chronergy escapement (patented by Rolex), which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability.
Above all, as the direct descendants of the original Oyster – the world’s first waterproof wristwatch – on which Rolex has built its reputation since 1926, the new watches in the Oyster Perpetual range benefit from all the fundamental features of the collection: From excellent chronometric precision, proven waterproof qualities, and self-winding of the movement via a Perpetual rotor, as well as a sophisticated finish.
