The 2020 Oyster Perpetual is vividly called “cucurbit baby” and “Pokemon” by watch friends because of its various dial colors. However, since Rolex’s official website removed the 41mm yellow, coral, green, and turquoise colors from the shelves in 2022, the colors of the series of products currently on sale have become much more monotonous, which is regrettable. Now the 2023 Oyster Perpetual is returning strongly with colorful bubbles. At the same time, five lacquer tones are gathered on the dial. The unique design is unforgettable.
The new product uses the “turquoise” color of the previous fire as the primary color of the disk, and many bubbles of different sizes are distributed on the top. The edges of these air bubbles are covered with black circles, including candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral, and green, previously used by the Oyster Perpetual.
Unlike previous solid-color dials, the manufacturing and processing of colored dials are more complicated, which requires the dial decoration process to be carried out in a strictly controlled environment to prevent dust pollution.
The Oyster Perpetual is a product line with a long Rolex history, originating from the first waterproof Oyster imitation luxury watches that came out in 1926. Although the current Oyster Perpetual is positioned at the entry level among many Rolex models, its precise travel time, Oyster waterproof case, and Perpetual oscillating weight self-winding movement are the same as the brand’s higher-end series.
The 2023 Oyster Perpetual has three diameter options, and the product model continues the previous model 277200 (31 mm), 126000 (36 mm), and 124300 (41 mm). Among them, the 36mm and 41mm models are equipped with the Rolex Call.3230 movement, while the 31mm models use the minor Cal.2232 movement.
As one of the most widely used movements of Rolex at present, the 3230 movement adopts the patented Chronergy escapement system, made of nickel-phosphorus alloy and not disturbed by high-intensity magnetic fields.
Accuracy has always been a point of pride for the brand. The watch has passed a series of tests by the Rolex laboratory and obtained the “Excellent Observatory Certification.” The average error is within plus or minus 2 seconds per day.
The middle case is cast from a solid block of Oystersteel. The side of the matter is equipped with a screw-in crown with the Rolex logo, and the top is engraved with the brand’s iconic crown logo. This screw-in crown has a double-lock double waterproof system firmly screwed to the case, making the watch replicas waterproof to 100 meters.
The watch is equipped with an Oyster bracelet, introduced by Rolex in the late 1930s, and its reliability has withstood the test of time.
From the 2020 model’s “cucurbit baby” color scheme to the 2023 model’s distinctive colored bubble dial, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual has become bolder and bolder in its dial color, injecting more vitality into this long-established series. The brand also constantly caters to fashion trends and favors young consumers.
