Alive with colour, vitality and positivity, the new dials of the Oyster Perpetual 31, Oyster Perpetual 36 and Oyster Perpetual 41 are dotted with many-coloured bubbles that joyfully reunite the five hues introduced to the range in 2020.
This effervescent, euphoric design is the product of artistry and masterful technique. The dial decoration is carried out in a strictly controlled environment to prevent any contamination from dust and requires the utmost precision at every stage to create a marvel of colour.
Creativity and masterful technique
Featuring bubbles of different sizes fringed with black, the dial of the new versions of the Oyster Perpetual combine the vivid colours introduced in 2020: candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral red, and green.
The new versions of the Oyster Perpetual are made from Oystersteel. This special steel, offering an exceptional sheen, is produced exclusively for Rolex. Oystersteel belongs to the 904L steel family – alloys that are commonly used in advanced-technology fields such as the aerospace and chemical industries. Their excellent anti-corrosion properties are comparable to those of precious metals.
Calibres 2232 and 3230
The Oyster Perpetual 31 is equipped with calibre 2232, while the Oyster Perpetual 36 and Oyster Perpetual 41 are both fitted with calibre 3230. Unveiled in 2020 and introduced to these models the same year, these movements were entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. They incorporate a number of the latest advances in Rolex technology, including the high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers.
Fitted with the Syloxi hairspring and a paramagnetic escape wheel in nickel-phosphorus, the 2232 movement guarantees a power reserve of approximately 55 hours. Calibre 3230, on the other hand, includes a blue Parachrom hairspring and Chronergy escapement extending the power reserve to approximately 70 hours.
The new variants of the Oyster Perpetual 31, Oyster Perpetual 36 and Oyster Perpetual 41 are fitted on an Oyster bracelet. Developed at the end of the 1930s, this three-piece link bracelet remains the most universal in the Oyster Perpetual collection and is known for its robustness. The Oyster bracelet of these new watches is equipped with a folding Oysterclasp which prevents accidental opening. It is also equipped with the Easylink comfort extension link – developed by Rolex – that allows the wearer to easily adjust the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm.
