The good news for newcomers to the brand is that Rolex watches has given its dials a splash of colour and launched this classic Oyster Perpetual in a fashionable 39mm diameter - an iconic watch from an iconic brand at a very attractive entry-level price. Sporty, yet elegant, the watch is a direct descendant of the original Oyster of 1926, which changed watchmaking history forever as the world's first waterproof watch. Fans of Rolex will recognise the waterproof screwed-down and fluted Oyster caseback designed to keep the Perpetual automatic movement safe from the elements and to withstand depths of up to 100 metres. Even the screwed-down crown is hermetically sealed with the Twinlock double-waterproofness system. The dark rhodium dial features a sunray finish and contemporary blue hour accents above the white gold indices covered in phosphorescent material. Inside the robust steel case with its satin finish is Rolex calibre 3132 with superior anti-magnetic and shockproof systems. As with all Oyster watches, the movement is COSC-certified as a chronometer. The integrated steel Oyster bracelet, with its hallmark three-piece solid links, is attached to the wrist with a folding Oysterclasp.
