Rolex the popular and well renowned watch making brand, moved its headquarters to Geneva in the year 1919. This was because Geneva was a city that was internationally famous for making the best watches in the world.
Reminding you of the deep blue waters, this beautifully designed watch, the Oyster Perpetual M177200-70160 BLU AZZUROROM369II is hailed as being the quintessential Oyster Rolex. It has a surprisingly simple design that aims for easy and casual daily usage. This watch’s case is made of durable 904L steel, and is mounted by a domed bezel, which keeps up the simple facade of the timepiece. The bracelet of the watch is a standard, flat, three link construction, which is a trademark of the Oyster series. An oysterclasp ensures that the security of the watch is not undermined in any way.
The highlight of this watch is the blue azzuro dial that it possesses. Its hour indexes, are marked with Roman numerals, and the hour and minute’s hands are in silver. A scratch resistant and anti-reflective Sapphire crystal protects the clock face and makes the watch more durable. It also provides clarity, which makes reading the time easier when you are out in the sunlight.
The Oyster Perpetual M177200-70160 BLU AZZUROROM369II was one of the first models to use the famous Oyster case technology, which later gave birth to the entire Oyster Perpetual series. Its Oyster case consists of a twin lock technology coupled with a screw down back cover and winding crown. This results in rendering the watch completely water proof to a depth of 100 metres. A Perpetual, self-winding mechanical movement ensures accuracy and longer life to the chronometer. Like all Rolex watches, this model too is a certified Swiss chronometer, and has gone through the same vigorous testing as the others.
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.
