Rolex celebrates the Oyster Perpetual with a special NEW dial at Watches & Wonders 2023
Rolex turned the world upside-down in 2020 during the pandemic when they released colored lacquered dials in their most inexpensive model in their collection, the Oyster Perpetual. These dials proved the be a massive success for the brand, so much so that some of them went for as much as 5-10 times their retail value in the aftermarket! Only Rolex could make their entry level watches one of the most desirable in the world!
To celebrate this, Rolex has released a NEW addition to its Oyster Perpetual line with the Celebration motif. Available for the Oyster Perpetual 31, Oyster Perpetual 36, and Oyster Perpetual 41, this new motif features a turquoise blue dial with differently sized bubbles fringed with black, showcasing the vivid colors of the lacquered dials introduced in 2020. Personally, this wouldn’t be my first choice, but I can see how this will become collectible because how specific it is . I doubt it will be made for too long.
The Oyster Perpetual line is known for its durability and reliability, and the Celebration motif is no exception. The watch case is made of Oystersteel, a specially developed alloy belonging to the 904L steel family. This high-tech steel is commonly used in the aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is essential. Oystersteel is extremely resistant, offers an exceptional finish once polished, and maintains its beauty even in the harshest environments.
But it’s not just about function, Rolex’s attention to detail in form and aesthetics is also evident in the Oyster Perpetual line. The Oyster bracelet, first introduced in the late 1930s, is a perfect alchemy of form and function. It features a robust and comfortable metal bracelet with broad, flat three-piece links that remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster collection. For the Oyster Perpetual models, the Oyster bracelet is fitted with an Oysterclasp, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit.

The turquoise blue dial with its bubbles of candy pink, yellow, coral red and green create a joyful and festive atmosphere that is sure to put a smile on your face.
