Colourful Rolex Oysters

Colourful Rolex Oysters

Featured Brand: Rolex

January 8th 2022

Fine, luxury watches are not normally known for vibrant colours, traditionally they’re presented in metals such as gold, silver and steel. Rolex Oyster Perpetual 31 models differ, produced in a variety of vivid colours setting them apart as symbols of the classic style. They embody the timeless form and function of the Swiss brand’s timepieces while their aesthetics add great variety.

These watches are produced with steel watch cases made of Oystersteel, specially developed by Rolex. Oystersteel is an alloy most commonly used in high-technology, such as in the aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is crucial. Oystersteel also produces an exceptional finish once polished, maintaining its beauty under the harshest conditions.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual in various colours

The Royal Oyster perpetual features the Oyster bracelet, perfectly blending form and function, aesthetics and technology. First introduced in the late 1930s, this particularly robust and comfortable metal bracelet has broad, flat three-piece links. It remains the most widely-used bracelet in the Oyster collection and is fitted with an Oysterclasp for this collection.

They’re also equipped with the self-winding mechanical movement calibre 2232. Rolex manufactured and developed this new generation movement, first unveiled in 2020.

The Syloxi hairspring, made of silicon and patented by Rolex, offers a superlative level of chronometric performance. Insensitive to magnetic fields, the Syloxi hairspring provides great stability in the face of temperature variations. It’s 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. Its patented geometry ensures its regularity in any position.

The dial is often the most distinctive feature of a watch and for good reason. This feature is most responsible for a watch’s identity and readability. These models are designed with hour markers fashioned from 18 ct gold to prevent tarnishing. The Rolex dial is designed and manufactured in-house, mostly by hand, to ensure perfection.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual in various sizes

A few of the Oyster Perpetual collection are complemented by the sunray finish, which creates delicate light reflections on the dials. Rolex achieves this by using masterful brushing techniques creating grooves which run 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. The dial colour is applied, once the sunray finish is completed, by using Physical Vapour Deposition or electroplating. The final look is achieved by a light coat of varnish.

The Oyster Perpetual 31 models with the sunray finish dials in this collection are:

  • Silver Dial
  • Bright Blue Dial
  • Bright Black Dial
  • Pink Dial

The other models in this collection are:

  • Turquoise Blue Dial
  • Coral Red Dial
  • Yellow Dial
  • Green Dial
  • Candy Pink Dial

The Oyster Perpetual 31 pieces are most definitely manufactured to the highest standards of engineering and ingenuity. But its aesthetics make this Rolex collection one that stands out from the norm.
