History of Rolex Oyster Perpetual



Oyster Perpetual – The Quintessential Oyster, that’s how Rolex defines one of their most elegant and classic watches. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual portrays the purest expression of the Oyster concept.

 

The Rolex Oyster came into this world in 1926. It was deemed to be the first waterproof watch in the world, and it was the foundation on which Rolex built its reputation. This watch famously crossed the English Channel in 1927, and in 1931, Rolex patented the world’s first self-winding mechanism with a perpetual rotor, which is at the heart of every modern automatic watch today.

Moreover, the “Oyster” name is often associated with a particular style bracelet accompanying many Rolex watches. The evolution of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual inspired some of the essential wristwatches historically, surviving the harshest of conditions from 35,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, to the summit of Mount Everest, without skipping a beat.

There aren’t many timepieces around that have contributed more to the advancement of horological design, and along with that defined Rolex’s reputation for excellence. Many watchmakers have tried to replicate its success. Still, no one has produced a watch that can endure every day wear & tear as well as a Rolex Oyster Perpetual does. Also, Rolex owes much of its success to a unique market niche that the Oyster case helped define.

The oyster perpetual epitomizes Rolex’s passion for innovation and commitment to superior design. Besides, you can see for yourself that the Oyster Perpetual is a simple, straightforward yet robust collection. You can’t go wrong when buying a vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch.
