Rolex lights up entry level Oyster Perpetual family with larger size and bold colour dials

Oyster Perpetual 41

Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual is the lowest cost entry point to the Swiss watchmaker’s seductive world and often bypassed in the rush to score a first Submariner.

This year Rolex has given the collection a starring role with a larger sized 41mm style featuring either a black or silvery-white sunray dial. A family of gender-neutral 36mm models come in a range of bold dial colours.

The watches go on sale this month for between £4,050 and £4,700.

Both the 41mm and 36mm collections use the new chronometer-rated calibre 3230 that is also adopted by the steel Submariner launching today, giving you all of the accuracy and dependability of a Sub at a significant saving. The automatic movement has a power reserve of around 70 hours.

The only compromise, from a technical standpoint, is that the Submariner is rated waterproof to 300 metres while the Oyster Perpetual is rated to 100 metres.

Today’s Oyster Perpetual 41 has a silver, sunray-finish dial with hands and hour markers in 18ct yellow gold. A bright black sunray-finish dial version has hands and hour markers in 18ct white gold.

Smaller Oyster Perpetual 36 models come with lacquer dials in a choice of candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral red and green.

All watches come on Oystersteel Oyster bracelets with their folding Oysterclasp and the Easylink comfort extension link.
