Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual watches are known to be in a class of their own. To fans, they are as close to perfection as possible – with a universal, classic style, as well as useful day-to-day functions.

A direct descendant of the original Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch on which Rolex has built its reputation since 1926, each different one is firmly rooted in the pioneering origins of the brand.

For 2020, the Oyster Perpetual collection has been updated. Not only does this add a fresh feel to already popular designs, there is even a totally new model to look out for.

The Oyster Perpetual Submariner and Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date professional divers’ watches are unveiled with a redesigned and slightly larger 41mm case. They come equipped respectively, with calibre 3230, launched this year, and calibre 3235.

Then you have the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31. Presented in a white Rolesor version (combining Oystersteel and 18ct white gold), it features dials in a variety of colours, with either index hour markers or Roman numerals made of 18ct white gold.

Completely revised, the range welcomes a new 41mm model – the Oyster Perpetual 41. The Oyster Perpetual 36, on the other hand, brings vibrant dials to the range. Both of these watches are fitted with calibre 3230.

The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is fitted with an Oysterflex bracelet for the first time. This 18ct yellow gold version’s high-performance elastomer bracelet has an Oysterclasp, plus the Rolex Glidelock extension system for enhanced comfort on the wrist.

Like all Rolex watches, the timepieces presented this year carry the brand’s own Superlative Chronometer certification, symbolised by a green seal.

This certification (coupled with an international five-year guarantee) ensures that they satisfy performance criteria which exceed watchmaking norms and standards in terms of precision, waterproofness, self-winding and power reserve.
