Rolex pays tribute to its colored Oyster Perpetuals with a 'celebration' model that brings together the five colors introduced to the range in 2020.
The chromatic effervescence and graphic euphoria are made possible by artistic mastery and mastery of technique. The creation of the dial, carried out in compliance with the strict conditions established to avoid any contamination of the environment with dust, requires meticulous work in each phase of the manufacturing process, so that each color is a source of wonder.
Composed of black-edged spheres of different sizes, the dials of the new Oyster Perpetuals take up the luminous colors introduced in 2020: pink candy, light turquoise, yellow, coral red and green.
The new versions of the Oyster Perpetual are made in Oystersteel. This special steel, which offers an exceptional shine, is produced exclusively for Rolex. Oystersteel steel belongs to the family of 904L steels, alloys generally used in high technology, for example in the aerospace and chemical industries. Their excellent anti-corrosion properties are comparable to those of precious metals.
The Oyster Perpetual 31 is equipped with the caliber 2232, while the Oyster Perpetual 36 and Oyster Perpetual 41 house the caliber 3230. Both movements were developed and manufactured by Rolex, presented in 2020 and incorporated into these models in the same year . They incorporate some of Rolex's latest technological advances, such as the high-performance Paraflex shock absorber.
Fitted with a Syloxi hairspring and a nickel-phosphorus paramagnetic escape wheel, caliber 2232 guarantees an autonomy of approximately 55 hours. The caliber 3230, on the other hand, includes the blue Parachrom hairspring and the Chronergy escapement, thanks to which it boasts an autonomy of approximately 70 hours.
The new versions presented of the Oyster Perpetual 31, the Oyster Perpetual 36 and the Oyster Perpetual 41 are combined with an Oyster bracelet. Developed in the late 30s, this three-row bracelet is still the most popular bracelet among watches in the Oyster Perpetual collection and stands out for its robustness.
The Oyster bracelet of these new watches features an Oysterclasp with a folding clasp, which prevents any inadvertent opening. It has the Easylink quick extension link, developed by Rolex, which allows you to easily adjust the length by approximately 5 mm.
