Established by Hans Wilsdorf in 1905, Rolex was the first brand which created wrist watches. Today, this brand is known all over the world for its lovely designs and cutting-edge technology.
With its roots firmly planted in the pioneering origins of Rolex, this elegantly designed Oyster Perpetual M116000-70200 RED GRAPE INDEX is hailed as the quintessential Oyster Rolex. The charm of this model lies in the fact that it is surprisingly free from any sort of clutter, yet is able to embody the style and spirit of Rolex. Perfect for daily wear, this model’s case is made of durable 904L steel. A unique red grape toned dial adds a spot of colour and enhances the beauty of the watch. The hour and minute’s hands as well as the hour indexes, are represented with the help of Roman numerals, with a silver tone.
Its bracelet has the standard, flat, three link Oyster construction that is a trademark of the Oyster series. An Oyster clasp ensures that the watch remains safe without any chance of opening and falling off when worn. The bezel is domed and smooth keeping up with the simple design of the watch. A standard Rolex sapphire crystal protects the surface of the dial and makes the watch more durable. Its scratch resistance protects the timepiece from external wear and tear. The crystal also has anti-reflective properties, allowing you to read time easily even when you are out in the sunlight.
The Oyster Perpetual n M116000-70200 RED GRAPE INDEX has an Oyster case, which consists of a twin lock technology coupled with a screw down back cover and winding crown. This technology that has given both the watch and the series its name, creates two sealed zones which results in rendering the watch completely water proof to a depth of100 metres. The 2321 caliber movement of the watch is perpetual, self-winding and mechanical.
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.
