The sunray finish creates delicate light reflections on many dials in the Oyster Perpetual collection. It is obtained using masterful brushing techniques that create grooves running outwards from the centre of the dial. Light is diffused consistently along each engraving, creating a characteristic subtle glow that moves depending on the position of the wrist. Once the sunray finish has been completed, the dial colour is applied using Physical Vapour Deposition or electroplating. A light coat of varnish gives the dial its final look.
Rolex uses Oystersteel for its steel watch cases. Specially developed by the brand, Oystersteel belongs to the 904L steel family, alloys most commonly used in high-technology and in the aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is essential. Oystersteel is extremely resistant, offers an exceptional finish once polished and maintains its beauty even in the harshest environments.
The Oyster bracelet
The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology. First introduced in the late 1930s, this particularly robust and comfortable metal bracelet with its broad, flat three-piece links remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster collection. For the Oyster Perpetual models the Oyster bracelet is fitted with an Oysterclasp.
Availability of the Model
All Rolex wristwatches are crafted by hand with the highest level of care and attention to detail in order to meet the brand's high quality standards. It goes without saying that this level of care affects Rolex's ability to produce watches in high numbers, which means that high demand can affect the availability of certain Models.
The new Rolex wristwatches are only available from official retailers. These dealers are supplied regularly and can decide for themselves which customers they sell which watch to.
Wempe is proud to be part of the worldwide network of official Rolex retailers, as such we can let you know about the availability of the various Models.
