[Watch House Watch Tasting] Rolex released new products at the beginning of September. In addition to the new series of Submariner series that has received much attention, the Oyster Perpetual series of the entry series has been updated and replaced with the original color. More options have been added to the disk, and on the day of the release, some watch friends put their colorful colors on the “Gourd Baby” and “Pokemon”. The Watch House also photographed Rolex’s new watches for the first time. I picked one of my favorite turquoise blue dial Oyster Perpetual as the tasting content. The color of the dial was also Watch friends call it Tiffany Blue, let us take a look at this watch together.
Oyster Perpetual (Oyster Perpetual) series watches are in the same line as the first waterproof Oyster watch that came out in 1926. Rolex is world-renowned for its Oyster watches, so Oyster Perpetual watches should be owned by them. All of its important qualities are accurate timekeeping, waterproof Oyster case, and perpetual rotor automatic winding movement. Oyster Perpetual has always been used as an entry model for customers to choose in the modern Rolex market. With its extraordinary aesthetic design, it has also become a recognized symbol of elegant style.
There are two sizes for the new Oyster Perpetual Men’s model, which are 41 mm and 36 mm in diameter. In the picture, this model is 41 mm large, and the large size model is also increased compared to the old 39 mm. Up 2 mm. The Oyster case is cast from a single piece of solid Oyster steel, which is hard to corrode. The Oyster steel material is also a model of durability.
The other side of the watch features a screw-in crown with the Rolex logo, and the crown is engraved with the brand’s iconic crown logo. This screw-in crown has a double lock double waterproof system, which is firmly screwed on the case, making the watch 100 meters waterproof.
I personally think that the biggest highlight of this watch is the turquoise blue dial, which makes it stand out from this series of watches. The texture of the turquoise blue lacquer is extremely distinctive and unique. The new watch also adheres to the tradition of the Oyster Perpetual Series, displaying the time in the most concise and elegant way. The hour markers and hands are made of long-lasting shiny 18ct gold and are coated with easy-to-read Chromalight luminous paint, making the watch even It can be read clearly even in a dimly lit environment. Here I would like to mention the changes of the dial compared to the old model. The new time scales all use rectangular luminous time scales. At the same time, at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, we can see that Rolex uses two luminous rectangles juxtaposed to form the time scales. In the old models, this is generally a combination of a single luminous hour marker or a side-by-side combination of a luminous hour marker and a metal hour marker. In order to distinguish it from the old model, Rolex also set a small crown icon in the center of the Swiss made under the six o’clock hour scale.
We can see Rolex’s process details for the case and lugs, reflecting the elegant luster on both sides, so that the Oyster case is paired with a round arched polished bezel, which makes the elegant silhouette more prominent and adds more charm.
The new Oyster Perpetual type is equipped with an Oyster bracelet cast in Oystersteel. This three-link bracelet, introduced in the late 1930s, is sturdy and reliable. From the details of the above picture, we can see that the middle link of the strap is frosted, and the outer edge surface is polished, which is integrated with the case.
The Oyster bracelet is equipped with a folding Oyster clasp, with the brand crown logo engraved on the bottom of the buckle. This buckle is also equipped with easy-to-adjust links developed by Rolex, allowing the wearer to easily adjust and extend the strap by approximately 5 mm. This is also the first time that the Oyster Perpetual Series is equipped with an easy-to-adjust link device for a strap. The watch adopts a screw-in back cover design. Under the back cover is equipped with Rolex’s latest 3230 perpetual movement. Its new technology uses the Chronergy escapement system made of nickel and phosphorus, which is efficient and reliable without magnetic interference. Color Parachrom hairspring, this hairspring is made of a unique paramagnetic alloy cast by Rolex, its shock resistance is ten times higher than that of traditional hairspring, and the high-performance Paraflflex cushioning device improves the overall vibration resistance of the movement. At the same time, the new 3230 movement benefits from the excellent efficiency of the barrel structure and escapement system, which increases the power reserve of the movement to approximately 70 hours, which is a significant increase compared to the old model’s 48 hours. This movement has also been certified by Rolex’s Super Observatory, and the time is accurate to within two seconds a day, and comes with a global five-year warranty.
Summary: The turquoise blue of this Oyster Perpetual Disk gives its appearance an excellent visual effect as a whole. Under the development trend of today’s watches with a large diameter, the new two-millimeter increase is not more heavy. Abrupt, did not destroy the beauty of the watch. And internally, the new movement fully embodies Rolex’s innovative technology and top-notch watchmaking craftsmanship. It has been further improved in terms of precision and reliability, power reserve, anti-vibration, anti-magnetic, and convenient use.
