In 1926, Rolex gave birth to the first totally waterproof case, named Oyster and only 5 years later the company introduced the world’s first self-winding mechanism. The Oyster Perpetual wristwatch is very popular among collectors due to its unusually large size for the time. The present watch is very beautiful thanks to its stainless steel and pink-gold Oyster riveted bracelet in nice conditions and nowadays difficult to find. The case is in stainless steel and is surprising for the conditions of both case back and bezel. The dial has aged heavenly is still maintaining clear texts with applied pink gold baton hour markers and dauphine hands. It is important to underline the write “OFFICIALLY” is written in red, not commonly seen on this type of Oyster model.
