The Rollex Oyster Perpetual is one of many Rollex watches that has been inspired by oysters. Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches are known for their classic and elegant design, as well as the timepiece being created with a vintage-inspired theme. The Oyster Perpetual is said to be a revolutionary watch that combines a vintage design with contemporary accuracy. It features a self-winding mechanical movement with date, time and light sensors at the back of the watch. Other features include a water-resistant body and a luminous crystal dial.
The Rollex Oyster Perpetual models have two kinds of movements: the first is the Automatic Masterchrono, which use a self-winding mechanical system, and the second is the Chronograph Self-Winding System. Both are powered by the Rollex Oyster Perpetual’s chronograph feature, which features indexes and hands that appear like an analogue clock. The watches run for four and a half hours and have a maximum luminosity of nine hundredths.
The Oyster Perpetual is available in a wide variety of colours, including black and silver. It also comes with a special black water-resistant case back, and in addition the Oyster Perpetual is covered in a soft leather band. Other styles include the Rollex Vintage Chronograph, the Rollex Chronograph GMT, and the Rollex Vintage Moon Phase. Each of these has a silver or black dial. The Vintage Moon Phase model features a twenty-four hour power reserve and is water-resistant up to thirty meters.
The Rollex Oyster Perpetual is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement. Its perpetual calendar allows the owner to set dates manually. The timepiece can be worn daily for a comfortable wear at any time, and thanks to its waterproof feature, it can even be used for underwater diving. A date wheel, second hand and luminous hands complete its casual, sporty and modern look.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches are built with a simple but efficient design. They are designed to provide both precision and durability. The Oyster Perpetual is covered in a luxurious water resistant skin and is shock resistant to a depth of three hundred feet. This means that the Oyster Perpetual is able to withstand the harshest conditions, giving owners peace of mind while on the go.
The Oyster Perpetual has a rich, dark brown dial that features a stainless steel case. Some versions have a stainless steel bracelet, while others are available with a leather band. The complications include a Date function, a timer, and a chronograph. A moon phase mode is also featured. The Rollex Perpetual comes with a removable leather strap, which makes it convenient for any occasion.
Like many luxury watches, the Rollex Oyster Perpetual uses a round dial. The layout of the hour markers and hands of this model is especially interesting, as it incorporates the use of what is known as a ‘longevity push button.’ This works by gently pressing a button on the center of the dial, which resets the timepiece’s chronograph. There are also four sub dials, which include the top, the middle, the base, and the outer Roman numeral minute indicators. These feature a slightly larger than average size for an entry-level watch, and are illuminated with white backgrounds, making them easy to read in bright light.
Other than the round, square dial, this watch is offered with a choice of either bezels or luminous hands. Between these two features, the style and function of Rollex Perpetual watches become very clear. Bezels allow you to access your watch’s inner workings while allowing you to view the time at the same time. They do this by displaying in their entirety, the minute and hour hand as well as the central second hand. Luminous hands, meanwhile, provide you with a fully functioned dial that allows you to clearly see the time.
