The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34 collection deserves the crown
The dials of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34 are furnished with the famous five-pointed crown on the 12 hour position. Rolex is still considered as epitome of luxury, as legendary manufactory and wearable statement of real gentlemen and elegant women. The watchmaker with its headquarters in Geneva has not by chance been the symbol of the Haute Horlogerie since 1905 which would not be possible without the innovative enterprise of Hans Wilsdorf.
Oyster stands for waterproofness
In 1926, Rolex launched the model Oyster. To this day, it means that all models with this designation have at least a water resistance to 100 meters. The movement lies sheltered and dry in the case like in an Oyster. Rolex wanted to bring this achievement closer to a wider public by equipping Mercedes Gleitze with a Rolex for the official attempt in 1927 to cross the English Channel as first Englishwoman.
Four years later, a first Oyster model got the additional designation Perpetual. The term Perpetual means "permanent" or "eternal" and indicates the automatic movement which operates using a 42 hours power reserve – while this is happening constantly, as long as the self-winding movement is activated.
Exclusivity – then as well as today
The launch of the first Perpetual Oyster meant another milestone in the glorious company history for which a patent was received – the first automatic movement combined with a waterproof case has ever played an essential role with every Oyster Perpetual and is the unique selling proposition of the original.
This original versions today reminisce the noble collections and continue to carry the name and even visually have much in common with that model. The Oyster Perpetual 34 convinces with puristic design and purposely little extravagance. With the composition of the materials, Rolex also relied on the well-proven. Cases and wristbands are made of fine steel; sapphire glass covers dials in silver, white, rose or blue. Noble and classy while committing understatement, every model of the Oyster Perpetual 34 Collection looks positively to the future, without forgetting the past.
