Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 Watch

Some “watch people” I know look down on Rolex watches because they’re too “mainstream”, and I would normally fall into that category but when it comes to Rolex watches, I don’t. To me Rolex is a status symbol and it doesn’t need explaining; if I were to spend $10,000+ on another high-end watch, I’d have to explain what it is and why it costs so much, but if I were to buy a Rolex, “it’s a Rolex” is all that’s needed to explain my spending of such large sum on a watch.

I have planned on owning a Rolex for a while, the stars just haven’t aligned yet, but I will definitely buy a Rolex watch in the next year or two. Maybe the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 watch could be “the one”.

The Oyster Perpetual line of watches has been around for a very long time, and this new version is the direct descendant of the world’s first water proof wristwatch, produced by Rolex in 1926. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 is a bit more modern with the increase in case size to 39 millimeters. This “bigger” size may seem small to some, but I personally think this is a great size and Rolex watches don’t need to be 60+ mm like some of the Diesel and Invicta “watches”!

The Oyster Perpetual 39 has a very simple, clean, and elegant look to it. The watch has been kept simple on purpose, and the simplicity gives it the classic look. The watch comes with a dark rhodium dial, three hands, and hour marker batons. The case is made out of stainless steel with a matching bracelet, the front of the watch is covered with a domed sapphire crystal. It’s powered by an in-house Rolex calibre 3132 self-winding automatic movement and is water resistant to 100 meters (330 feet). Via: Rolex
