Oyster Perpetual

Make the world your Oyster

Freedom of movement

As the purest expression of Rolex’s manufacturing spirit, the Oyster Perpetual was designed for those who see the world as having boundless possibilities. As the quintessential wristwatch, it carries the brand’s founding legacy while following the movement of its era. Reliable on every count, the Oyster Perpetual withstands the demands of contemporary life and makes way for endless future possibilities that are ours to pursue.

Universal symbols

The aesthetics of the Oyster Perpetual models set them apart as symbols of universal and classic style. They embody timeless form and function, firmly rooted in the pioneering origins of Rolex. The simplicity of an original.


Oyster Perpetual watches stand out with dials in subtle or vibrant colours, ensuring that they always sport a contemporary look.

Optimal protection

The Oyster case of the Oyster Perpetual models is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). Its middle case is crafted exclusively from a solid block of Oystersteel, a particularly corrosion-resistant alloy. The case back, edged with fine fluting, is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Rolex watchmakers. Another core component in the watertight structure is the Twinlock winding crown, fitted with a double waterproofness system, which screws down securely against the case. The waterproof Oyster case provides the Rolex movement with optimal protection from water and dust.

The Oyster Perpetual is the purest expression of the Oyster concept.


Specially developed for the brand, Oystersteel belongs to the 904L steel family, alloys most commonly used in advanced-technology fields such as the aerospace and chemical industries. Oystersteel is particularly corrosion-resistant, offers an exceptional sheen and maintains its lustre even in the harshest environments.
