Rolex invented the waterproof Oyster case in 1926, after which all waterproof watches produced by the brand displayed the name "Oyster" somewhere on the dial. These timepieces run on a manual winding movement and are not to be confused with the more commonly found Oyster Perpetual, which utilizes a self-winding movement. The Rolex Oyster is a rarer timepiece and will add immense history to any watch collection. The preowned Rolex that is presented here today features a modest 34mm Oyster case as well as a protective acrylic crystal over the dial and an older-style Oyster bracelet with fold-over links and a Fliplock clasp. The dial has aged nicely over the years and features classic index hour markers, elegant dauphine hour and minute hands, and a blue seconds hand.
