By Paul Altieri,
History and tradition are the hallmarks of the Rolex brand. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is the model that put Rolex on the map when Mercedes Gleitze successfully swam the English Channel wearing an Rolex Oyster Perpetual. Each of the words in the phrase “Oyster Perpetual” has very specific meanings and has come to define the entire Rolex catalog. “Oyster”, much like its sea-dwelling namesake, denotes that this timepiece is completely waterproof. The Oyster case surrounds and protects the “Pearl” inside which is the precious movement of the watch. “Perpetual” describes the movement itself and means that, with continuous wear, the watch will never stop and keep time without the need of manual winding.
This beautiful timepiece is simplicity and elegance in one package. This Zephyr model was manufactured in 1957 and sports a stunningly sparse, silver, quadrant dial with minimal hour markings and gold dagger hands. The 1030 movement is very typical of this era and is robust and durable. The finely engine-turned Bezel is gorgeous and provides a nice contrast to the silver tones of the dial and case. Presented to you on a complimentary leather strap, this timepiece is a wonderful example of durable history that is practical even today.
