Have you admired a Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch from afar and wanted to learn more about this elegantly designed watch?The original Oyster watch with its waterproof case dates back to 1926. Why the name Oyster? Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf gave it that name because it closes as tightly as an oyster protecting its pearl. Like that pearl, the inner workings of this iconic watch are protected from water by the tightly sealed Oyster case. From that pivotal moment until now, this legendary timepiece has been the watch of choice for those looking for innovative design and superior workmanship. It was exceeded in quality only by the Oyster Perpetual in 1931.
The Oyster Perpetual's 'wearability' is exceptional. Slim and light, it fits on the wrist quite nicely. It may look like a dress watch but this understated watch shares the same ruggedness as many of Rolex's sportier (and bulkier) models.
Like its predecessor, Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches are guaranteed waterproof, this time to a depth of 330 feet/100 meters.
The watch features a perpetual (self-winding) movement with a 48-hour power reserve.Prices of the collection range from around $5,000 to slightly over $8,000.
