As far as entry-level luxury watches go, few come close to the appeal of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39. Making its debut in 2015, the Oyster Perpetual ref. 114300 is a solid approach to a starter Rolex watch. However, the starter is perhaps a misleading label since this Rolex watch is replete with the design and technical hallmarks that make the brand so coveted. Like the Rolex Submariner, this watch is an iconic timepiece. We’re offering you a chance to win a Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch so read on to see what makes this a top timepiece.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 Is a Great Looking Watch
With the Oyster Perpetual 39, Rolex kept the fundamentals and dropped the frills. For instance, it’s a full stainless steel Rolex watch with a very wearable 39mm case. At that size, it’s large enough to get noticed but restrained enough to tuck under a shirt or jacket. On the Oyster Perpetual’s case is the sleek smooth domed bezel, which holds the sapphire crystal in place.
Rolex fans will quickly notice the symmetry of the Oyster Perpetual Rolex 114300 thanks to its lack of date window on the dial. Instead, the dial of the Oyster Perpetual houses 18k white gold stick markers along with three luminescent indexes at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. The center hour and minute hands are also luminescent ensuring time-telling capability in the dark.
The Oyster Perpetual ref. 114300 offers a few dial colors including red grape, olive green, and dark rhodium. The version we’re giving away sports the most vibrant dial color choice—blue. Accenting the blue dial are twelve small green squares positioned at each hour around the periphery giving an even fresher look to the face of the watch.
Completing the contemporary style of the Oyster Perpetual 39 is the sporty steel Oyster bracelet outfitted with a secure Oysterclasp.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 Performs Skillfully
Aesthetics aside, how well does the Oyster Perpetual 39 perform? Well, as any modern Rolex watch does—impeccably. As a time-only model, the OP ref. 114300 runs on the in-house Rolex Cal. 3132 automatic mechanical movement.
Along with the trio of center hands, the Cal. 3132 also has the stop or “hack” seconds function. Subsequently, pulling out the screw-down winding crown stops the seconds hands for more precise time setting. The self-winding Rolex Caliber 3132 provides a respectable 48-hour power reserve and an enviable -2/+2 seconds per day accuracy rating. There’s also the paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers for optimal everyday durability. The Oyster Perpetual 39 is after all a Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified Rolex watch.
Similar to all current Rolex dress watches, the Oyster Perpetual 39 is water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet) deep thanks to its watertight construction.
