Oyster Perpetual

When founder Hans Wilsdorf invented the name Rolex in 1908, nobody could have imagined that it would become the official synonym (or almost) of the word “watch” in years to come. One of the brand’s timepieces has been renowned for its water resistance (100m), sturdiness and reliability since 1926. The Oyster model became famous when British swimmer Mercedes Gleitze (1900-1981) wore it to cross the Channel. The Oyster Perpetual’s steel case grew in diameter to 39mm in 2015. It houses the COSC-certified self-winding 3132 calibre which provides a 48-hour power reserve and brings to life the hour, minute and second functions. The time is displayed on the sunburst taupe grey rhodium dial as applied indices (three have a luminescent coating) and central hands. Sky blue hour markers add a burst of energy to the metallic model. Price: 5400 CHF
