A work of art in simplicity, the Oyster Perpetual 116000 for men instantly elevates your style.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 116000 has a round, silver dial. This timepiece features stick style hands and index markers in white, with Arabic numerals at the 3 o’ clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions. Moreover, the case window being made of anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal adds to the clarity of viewing the simply represented clock face.
An Oyster monobloc middle case, 36 mm in diameter and made of stainless steel encompasses the mechanics of the watch.
The watch band is made up of snugly fitting Oyster flat links in stainless steel with an over clasp which can be easily fastened. An additional 5 mm extension clasp provides that added level of comfort that is the mark of excellence.
Both self winding and mechanical, this timepiece has automatic movement. Like all watches from Rolex, this too is no exception and has its chronometer certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute which removes all possibilities of even minor irregularities in keeping time. Chances of damage due to either pressure or shocks are eliminated through the superior technology that is used in its making. The winding screw which is attached to its bezel is composed of twin locks which keep the watch waterproof to a depth of hundred meters. This means that it can be worn while bathing or swimming without any fear of damage.
Each Rolex watch is rigorously tested for its water -resistance. Moreover, the Oyster series undergoes a special test as well, wherein the watch is placed in a little chamber full of air. If the air pressure in the chamber changes, it means that it has leaked into the watch case and the watch is not at par with the exacting quality set for it.
In 1926, Rolex came up with the first waterproof and dust-proof wristwatch, naming it as “Oyster”. Claiming that the watch was waterproof was one thing, proving it was quite another but Rolex achieved this feat in 1927 when Mercedes Gleitze swam across the English channel wearing it. The watch remained in perfect working order even after the swim, which lasted over ten hours. This led to the birth of the testimony concept when Rolex published a full front-page ad in The Daily Mail to proclaim the success of the watch. In 1933 the first expedition to fly over the Everest took place and was equipped with Rolex Oysters.
The aesthetics of the Oyster Perpetual models are deeply rooted in the pioneering origins of Rolex. The watches feature the simplicity of the original watches by Rolex that continue to serve as a symbol of universal and classic style.
The watch is guaranteed to be waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. The Oyster case, which has been used in the watch constitute for an important milestone in the history of contemporary watchmaking. The back of the Oyster case is hermetically screwed down against the middle case, which is crafted exclusively from a solid block of corrosion resistant 904L Steel. The Fluted case back is a legacy associated with Rolex exclusively. It is extremely robust and forms the backbone of the case to which all the other parts are securely fitted. Another core component, which ensures that the watch is watertight, is the winding crown fitted with twin lock double waterproofness system. The watch is Chronometer Certified.
Mercedes Glietze, the first Englishwoman to swim the English Channel is often considered to be the first female celebrity athlete in the United Kingdom. She was also probably the first celebrity to endorse the Rolex Brand. It is interesting that the first celebrity to endorse Rolex as a brand was not a man but a woman. Major brands at that time often chose male celebrities as the face of their product. Rolex earned its right to be called way ahead of its time by choosing this remarkable woman as its ambassador.
