History
What set apart the aesthetics of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Collection are the classic styling and contemporary symbols couched in a traditional watch making craft. Embodying timeless functions and forms, the collection is firmly rooted in the pioneering spirit of the brand. The collection was founded on the success of the authentic Oyster model designed and patented by the brand in the year 1926. Acclaimed as the world’s first waterproof wristwatch, the Oyster model laid the groundwork for the development of the modern timepieces. Equipped with the Perpetual rotor, a self-winding mechanism movement patented and invented by Rolex in 1931, the collection became a model for the watch making industry to emulate.

Design
The mid-sized Rolex Oyster Perpetual M114200-70190_Wht Ara 369 wristwatch is quintessentially a modern day watch that oozes with the dynamic spirit of present times. A perfect combination of style and performance, this timepiece is completely fashioned out of a stainless steel body. The 34 mm round-shaped stainless steel case houses a white dial, engraved with hour marker indices, and Arabic numerals for the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions with the traditional Rolex insignia at the 12 o’clock position.

Features
Making use of perpetual, mechanical self-winding movement, calibre 3130 – officially certified Swiss chronometer (COSC), the Rolex Oyster Perpetual M114200-70190_Wht Ara 369 timekeeper is greatly reliable and accurate. The scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass case protects the dial from damage and scratches.  Being water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres, the watch is ideal for swimming as well as snorkelling. Also, its unique screw-down winding crown, and the screw-down case back provide hermetic environment, thanks to the two steel zones. Most significantly, its parachrom hairspring crafted with highly stable paramagnetic alloy, which provides resistance against magnetic fields and up to 10 times more resistance to shocks.

History
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.

 

Essence
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.

 

Features
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.

 

Associations
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.
