This year, ROLEX has once again introduced a new addition to its Oyster Perpetual lineup, featuring a distinctive dial pattern known as the “Celebration” and offers three different sizes: 41mm, 36mm, and 31mm. The Celebration dial is composed of varying-sized bubbles. The background color is turquoise blue, while the bubble ring is in black. The inside of the bubbles is filled with candy pink, yellow, coral red and green. These assorted bubbles draw inspiration from the five colours that ROLEX introduced for the Oyster Perpetual collection in 2020. The new dials brilliantly combine these five colors in a joyful manner.
The new Oyster Perpetual models are equipped with two different movements. The Oyster Perpetual 31 is powered by the 2232 calibre, while the Oyster Perpetual 36 and 41 feature the 3230 calibre. Both movements were introduced in 2020 and are entirely developed and manufactured in-house by the brand. Both movements are equipped with the high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, enhancing their resistance to shocks. The 2232 and 3230 calibres are equipped with a perpetual self-winding system, using the Perpetual rotor to wind the movement. Just like all ROLEX watches, the new Oyster Perpetual watches have received the prestigious Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) certification, ensuring exceptional performance when worn.
The Oyster bracelet, not just in terms of material but also in design and functionality. Introduced in the late 1930s, this metal bracelet is constructed with three wide, flat links and is incredibly robust. It has remained one of the most widely used bracelets in the Oyster Perpetual collection. The Oyster Perpetual watches are equipped with the Oyster clasp, featuring the Easylink extension system developed by Rolex. This allows wearers to easily extend the bracelet by approximately 5 millimeters, providing flexibility for adjustments.
The new Oyster Perpetual comes with Oyster cases that provide water resistance up to 100 meters. The middle case is crafted from a solid block of Oystersteel. Rolex watchmakers use the brand's exclusive tools to meticulously screw down the finely fluted case back, ensuring the case's hermetic seal.
All the models in sizes 31mm, 36mm, and 41mm are currently available on the market.
