When Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, had the idea to create a dustproof and waterproof wristwatch the Rolex Oyster was created. The Oyster revolutionized the wristwatch, helping to make the pocket watch a thing of the past. Later, it was the development of the self-winding movement that increased the watches’ accuracy and helped improve the case’s water resistance, by the less frequent unscrewing of the Rolex crown to wind the movement.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is set apart from all other Rolex models as a symbol of clean, comprehensive and classic style. The model embodies a timeless form, expert function and is of the firm belief that simplicity is key. Engrained with the pioneering origins of Rolex, the Oyster Perpetual is today a clear representation of the brand’s timeless elegance.
