The case

With a diameter of 34 mm, the model is one of the smaller watches from Rolex. The brand processes only stainless steel 904 L, which was developed for use in aviation and chemical industry, and therefore must meet high technical requirements. This alloy is not only incredibly hard and corrosion-resistant, but can also be polished to a shiny finish. Even under high stress, the beauty is preserved and its luster remains bright. The watch is water-resistant and can be used up to 100 meters without any problems.

Dial and bezel

In keeping with the overall sleek manufacturing of the watch, the dial also comes with a no-frills look. With no date or weekday display, it offers perfect readability of the time. This is supported by the indices made of 18-carat gold, which cannot tarnish. Since each dial is made in-house by Rolex and undergoes a long process in it, mostly by hand, it offers high quality standards. With different colors ranging from classy champagne to sporty blue, the watch is customizable to one's personality. A cambered bezel and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal complete the look.

The strap

The famous Oyster strap was first introduced in the late 1930s. Wide, flat elements create great robustness combined with comfortable wear. Since its invention, it has often been copied by many other brands, but never equaled. The strap is rounded off with an Oyster clasp. Form and function go hand in hand with aesthetic and technical achievements, resulting in a unique strap.

The movement

The Oyster Perpetual 34 was given a heart in the form of the Caliber 3130, which contains an automatic self-winding mechanism. It was tested by COSC (Controle Officiel Suisse de Chronometres) and awarded a certificate as a Swiss chronometer. This seal of quality is given only to watches of the highest quality level. Equipped with a Parachrom hairspring, the watch withstands temperature fluctuations and shocks better than comparable movements. Developed entirely by Rolex, the movement can score with its reliability and robust construction.

The Rolex brand

Since its founding in 1905, the luxury Rolex brand has been located in Geneva, Switzerland. The brand relies on a lot of manual work and the use of high-quality materials. Even the only Quartz Rolex to date is, by its floating second, hardly recognizable as such and far ahead of its time. Timeless design, technical progress and own developments let the brand Rolex become a synonym for high-quality watches. In addition to many celebrities such as Roger Federer or Lindsay Vonn, even German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer had a Rolex.
