Rolex has completely revamped their classic Oyster Perpetual model; more power reserve, new movements, plus a 41mm case size which many gents will see as being a better fit than a 36mm model of old.
Here’s the press info.
Rolex presents the new generation of its Oyster Perpetual watches and brings a new model to the range, the Oyster Perpetual 41, as well as versions of the Oyster Perpetual 36 displaying dials in vivid colours. The light reflections on the case sides highlight the elegant profile of the Oyster case, which is made from Oystersteel. Measuring 41 mm or 36 mm respectively, it is fitted with a domed bezel.
One version of the Oyster Perpetual 41 has a novel configuration: its silver, sunray-finish dial is graced with hands and hour markers in 18 ct yellow gold. A second version is introduced with a bright black sunray-finish dial, and hands and hour markers in 18 ct white gold.
The Oyster Perpetual 36 is unveiled with a dynamic and vibrant new look, offering lacquer dials in five new colours: candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral red and green.
The new generation Oyster Perpetual model has a Chromalight display: the hands and hour markers are coated or filled with a luminescent material that emits a long-lasting blue glow in dark conditions.
We love this new lume by the way, and it’s worth noting that one way to spot the new 2020 Submariner and Oyster models alike is the tiny Rolex crown, positioned at the 6pm marker.
The Oyster Perpetual 41 and the new versions of the Oyster Perpetual 36 are equipped with calibre 3230, a movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology, launched by Rolex this year.
Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual 41 and Oyster Perpetual 36 carry the Superlative Chronometer certification, which ensures excellent performance on the wrist.
