Blue Watch Band for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34mm

Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34mm with Blue Watch Band

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a direct descendant of the original Oyster launched in 1926 – the first waterproof wristwatch in the world.  This pioneering spirit and the drive to build timepieces dedicated to sporting activities for men and women became the foundation upon which Rolex has built its stellar reputation.

The Oyster Perpetual retains the classic Oyster case and the simplicity and world renowned and easily recognized style.  The Oyster Perpetual may seem simplistic, but Rolex has given owners an extensive array of choices – from eye-catching dials of a variety of colours and five sizes – 26 mm, 31 mm, 34 mm, 36 mm and the 39 mm.  There are too many colors to list out here – but the palette ranges from a simple white or black dial to an dazzling grape or aqua marine – and just about everything else in between.

The waterproof case is guaranteed to a depth of 330 feet.  The case is crafted from a solid block of corrosion-resistant Oystersteel.  Oystersteel is made from the 904L superalloy used in high-technology and in aerospace designs.  Oystersteel provides an exceptional finish even in the harshest environments.  The Twinlock double waterproofness system keeps the high precision Rolex movement safe from water, dust, pressure and shocks.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual featured an invention as early as 1931 which Rolex patented – a self-winding Perpetual rotor which transmits natural energy to the watch with normal wrist movements of the watch owner.  The most recent movement is a calibre 3130, featuring a Parachrom hairspring for resistance to shocks and temperature variations.  It is highly reliable and certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. The Oyster perpetual comes with an Oyster bracelet with three-piece links, made from Oystersteel and an Oysterclasp.  All Oyster Perpetual watches are fitted with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The Tudor Black Bay reference M79230B-0008 is a beautiful model combining the dark polished sea blue bezel with the highly legible black dial.

The Tudor is known for the big winding crown at the 3 o’clock position, which makes it simple to to adjust the timepiece.  The winding crown has the Tudor rose engraved on it – an exquisite touch.  Tudor released its own in-house movement in 2015 – a high-performance calibre MT5602 which is certified by the COSC, and provides an outstanding 70-hour power reserve.

It has a bidirectional rotor system allowing it to wind in either direction.  Uncluttered by any date or day apertures or any dials of any kind this timepiece has a singular tool-like purpose – allowing the wearer to see time perfectly in next to any circumstances – in darkness and in light.  The rotatable dial allows the diver to calculate their oxygen supply and dive time easily.

The 41mm steel case is joined by a domed sapphire crystal.  The timepiece comes with a steel bracelet, aged leather, or fabric straps with each new timepiece.  The fabric straps are a Tudor signature feature, being produced according to the “Jacquard” technique mastered by a century old family business from the St-Etienne region of France.  The rivet steel bracelet shown above has a folding buckle and safety clasp.
