Established in the year 1905 by Hans Wildorf, the brand is responsible for changing the way the watch industry was looked at. Through its consistent efforts in technology and design department, the brand has always been known for designing watches that belong to a unique class of style and efficiency. Every Rolex is designed to perfection making the brand a worldwide success. Rolex Silver index belongs to the Oyster Perpetual family which is one of the most recognizable of all legendary watches.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual M115200-72190 sports a round, silver dial with a flat three piece link bracelet made of steel with an Oysterclasp and an extension link. The dial is fitted in a stainless steel case that is processed in a way to make it scratch and corrosion resistant. The case is 34 mm in size with a screw down case back and winding crown with a dome shaped bezel. The winding crown boasts of a twinlock system that ensures that it is waterproof. The watch sports luminescent indexes that lend enhanced visibility. The dial cover is sapphire crystal glass which is scratch-resistant.
The Rolex is equipped with a 3135 calibre movement. It is fitted with a perpetual, mechanical, self-winding automatic movement that ensures prolonged efficiency. It is also equipped with an automatic date function located at the 3 o’clock position in the dial. For the date function, a visually enhanced Cyclops lens is incorporated that lends greater focus and better visibility. It also houses an officially certified Swiss chronometer (COSC). The timepiece is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters and is fitted with a bidirectional self-winding rotor.
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.
