A Rolex in Rolex Watchmaking
   The function of the Oyster Perpetual series is to display the time reliably and accurately, which is the essence of the Oyster concept. This watch originated from the world’s first waterproof watch, the Oyster prototype in 1926, and Rolex built its reputation. The Oyster Perpetual collection combines the famous Rolex waterproof oyster case with a self-winding perpetual movement. The Oyster Perpetual series is a Swiss Observatory-certified precision timepiece with all the basic elements of the Oyster series. This model is equipped with a striking new surface and stands out from many watches with elegant and sporty tones.
   The Oyster Perpetual Oyster case is a solid example of solidity. The uniquely shaped middle case is made of solid 904L steel and is difficult to corrode. The triangular bottom case back is screwed tightly with a brand-specific special tool to completely seal the case, which can only be opened by Rolex watchmakers.
Oyster case, symbol of water resistance and solidity
   The Oyster Perpetual series’ oyster case is guaranteed to be water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet), making it a sturdy and reliable example. The uniquely shaped middle case is made of solid 904L steel, which is difficult to corrode. The triangular bottom case back is screwed tightly with a brand-specific special tool to completely seal the case, which can only be opened by Rolex watchmakers. The winding crown uses a Rolex double-lock double waterproof system, which is firmly screwed to the case. In addition, the mirror is made of sapphire, which is not easy to scratch. Oyster Perpetual’s waterproof oyster case provides the best protection for a high-precision movement.

Rolex movements: 3132, 3130, 2231 movements
   Oyster Perpetual watches are equipped with 3132 (39 mm), 3130 (36 and 34 mm) or 2231 (31 and 26 mm) movements, depending on the size. These three sets of self-winding mechanical movements are completely developed by Rolex. The superb design, fine production and fine-tuning of this high-quality movement ensure unparalleled performance of the watch. Each movement is certified by the Swiss Astronomical Observatory. This certification is specifically awarded to precision watches successfully tested by the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Centre (COSC). Balanced swing components in the 3132 and 3130 movements are the heart of the watch. They are equipped with Rolex’s patented blue Parachrom hairspring. This hairspring is made of a unique niobium-zirconium alloy cast by Rolex. It is not affected by magnetic fields. It is still extremely stable to temperature changes, and its shock resistance is ten times higher than that of traditional hairsprings.
   The Oyster Perpetual watch is fitted with a solid link 904L stainless steel oyster strap, which is stable and comfortable, and is equipped with a folding oyster buckle designed by Rolex.
