Description

Rolex introduced the Oyster Perpetual watch in 1931. ‘Oyster’ refers to the revolutionary waterproof case, and ‘Perpetual’ refers to the automatic movement enclosed. The “Oyster Perpetual’ has become a staple for the classic collection, making them easily recognizable by the Oyster case.
