Made from the finest materials and assembled to the strictest watchmaking standards, Rolex is the epitome of luxury and classic style.
It doesn’t take a watch connoisseur to recognise a Rolex Oyster Perpetual. Naturally, such recognition can only come after glorious achievements. One of these achievements is certainly the iconic waterproof case, the “Oyster”, which is the basis of many of Rolex’s successful models. Invented and patented in 1926, it was the world’s first waterproof case for a wristwatch, and was so named because it reminded brand founder Hans Wilsdorf of the resilience of oyster shells. The “Perpetual” was added later when Rolex introduced its automatic winding mechanism and consolidated its position as an exceptional watchmaker.
ICON: Oyster Perpetual Day-Date “Sertie”
The launch of the Day-Date in 1956 marked another world’s first for Rolex: It was the first calendar wristwatch to indicate the day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial along with the date. Made exclusively in precious metals, this watch has long been associated with prestige, having graced the wrists of distinguished people in society. This year, the new DAY-DATE “SERTIE” features a carousel dial set with 217 diamonds and delicately inlaid with pink or white mother- ofpearl, engraved with a floral motif. It is equipped with a certified Swiss chronometer, Calibre 3155, and a blue PARACHROM hairspring for greater precision.
