3 Stylish Ways to Stay on Time

January 5, 2016

BY Paul Altieri


Getting back to basics

A classic, everyday Rolex watch that is just as comfortable paired with a suit or with some jeans, is an absolute staple in one’s wardrobe. Absent of bells and whistles, these watches shine in their simplicity. The focus here is on master craftsmanship, unassuming luxury, and of course, supreme timekeeping reliability. An ode to the original, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual has maintained its iconic status for decades, and thanks to its timeless design and superlative precision, it will continue to do so for many more generations. Indeed, sometimes, less is more, as beautifully illustrated by the Oyster Perpetual 116034, the Oyster Perpetual 116000, and the lady Oyster Perpetual 176234.

Oyster Perpetual 116034

The Oyster Perpetual ref. 116034 sports a stainless steel 36mm Oyster case with matching stainless steel Oyster bracelet. The monochromatic silver dial is sharp because of the subdued color palette, yet dynamic due to the vibrant concentric pattern and numerals. The Arabic numerals at 3, 6, and 9 indicate the hours, while the remainder of the numerals references the minutes and seconds, for a truly interesting configuration. For enhanced luxury, the ref. 116034’s is topped with an 18k white gold fluted bezel, and the inner bezel ring – the rehaut – is engraved with “Rolex Rolex Rolex” as an anti-counterfeit measure.

Oyster Perpetual 116000

Part of Rolex’s current lineup, the Oyster Perpetual 116000 is a full stainless steel model with a 36mm Oyster case and flat three-piece links Oyster bracelet. The silver dial with luminescent accented numerals, baton hour markers, and central hands shines with understated elegance, while the smooth domed bezel carries on the watch’s sleek look. Furthermore, the lack of a date window heightens the watch’s symmetry for a clean and uncluttered aesthetic that is timeless.  Topped with scratch resistant sapphire crystal, Twinlock screw-down crown for water resistance to 330 feet, and the Parachrom hairspring within its automatic Caliber 3130 movement for better resilience to knocks, this Rolex classic is built to last.

For the ladies, the Oyster Perpetual 176234 features a stainless steel Oyster case sized at a feminine 26mm accented by a fluted 18k white gold bezel for added preciousness and presented on a stainless steel Oyster bracelet outfitted with the Rolex Glidelock clasp. The silver dial of the ref. 176234 includes the characteristic 3, 6, and 9 Arabic numerals, along with pink baton hour markers for a pop of color. Protecting the face of the watch is a scratch resistant sapphire crystal while the Twinlock screw-down crown ensures the case remains watertight. Naturally, the Oyster Perpetual is a Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified since its automatic movement has been both certified by C.O.S.C. and undergone a series of in-house testing by Rolex’s engineers.
