    The history of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is part of the Oyster collection of watches by the legendary brand. Its name comes from its hermetically sealed, waterproof case. When the original Oyster was first launched in 1926, it was the world's first water- and dust-proof watch, making it a standout piece of watchmaking engineering.

    In 1931, Rolex introduced and patented its self-winding movement. This featured a weight designed to wind the watch when worn, meaning it could be constantly wound without manual intervention. From there, 'perpetual' was added to the name of Oyster watches with this self-winding mechanism. However, it was 1945 when the Oyster Perpetual was fully launched when the Datejust was introduced.

    The model rose to fame when the Oyster Perpetual was worn in 1953 on the Everest Expedition of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. This led to the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Explorer.

    Today, Oyster Perpetual is a term used across most Rolex dials. These are all built with the classic waterproof Oyster case and perpetual movement.
