It’s some unique and outstanding purpose of feature of the Rolex piece? Well, the simple truth is not even close to this initial impression. To merely place it, it’s really a marketing trick to create rolex watches look and appearance much more complex, costly and special than the others actually are.
The actual meaning of “Rolex Oyster Perpetual Replica” refers to what all pricey automatic movement have: “Perpetual” means that these replica watches have a continous self-winding mechanism and “Oyster” means the water resistant case Rolex uses. There is nothing that complicated or that innovative about the phrase “Oyster Perpetual” so do not be afraid that your replica watch might not respect this Rolex feature, because it does. All automatic watches are perpetual and replica Rolex manufacturers guarantee us that we can use the knockoff while washing our hands or in the rain.
Indeed, Rolex is very proud with its high quality automatic movements. The company is famous for creating some of the most exquisite and complicated mechanisms on the market, but these do not bring any innovations to its users. The only thing special about Rolex movements is their quality and high craftmanship. The result of this fact is an extreme accuracy and an unmatched durability. A Rolex watch can last you for a life time. The “Perpetual” marking is just a way of reminding everyone that Rolex watches show perfect time thanks to a continous and flawless motion. On the other hand, a couple hundred dollars Rolex replica watch will only have a 2-4 years life span, but it costs only a fraction of the original watch’s price.
Rolex was the first companu to ever launch a completely waterproof case. This happened in 1926, when it introduced a one of a kind sealing system which included a perfectly waterproofed screw down crown, caseback and winding crown. The term “Oyster” suggest the complex case that was designed to seal and protect the inside mechanism of a genuine Rolex watch. Of course, Rolex replica watches can not offer the same degree of water proofness. For example, genuine Rolex watches have a hermetic construction, allowing professional divers to submerge with the timepiece to depths of 100 meters, 300 meters or 3900 meters, depending on that particular model. The watch that dived to the highest depth is the Rolex DeepSea.
The Rolex Oyster system is equipped with a unique winding crown, which is beautifully crafted. it is constructed from two different parts and it is connected to the case by usig a small tube. Rolex Company is the owner of this very innovative water resistant winding crown. This part of the watch is designed to serve as a intermediary between the sealed inside and the moisty outside. By using a rubber seal, the caseback completely seals the inside mechanism when it is screwed into place. Also, the crystal is tighten onto the bezel by using an inner lip which also fas the function of sealling the case.
At the moment, Rolex is the true owner of the screw down crown, which is the most important part of the Oyster system, but the company is not the one that had invented this smart sealing piece. The screw down crown was developed by Paul Perregaux and Geirges Peret, but they decided to sell this invention to Rolex. Soon after this happened, the company introduced its new Oyster models. The first woman to swim the English Channel was Mercedes Gleitze and she did this in 1927 when she worn a Rolex Oyster. Her record was ptomoted intensively with the only goal of making people aware of the novely that the Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches represented.
Nowadays, all luxury designer watches have almost the same extreme water proof capabilities as Rolex does, just that they don’t show it off that much. If you were thinking of buying a Rolex Oyster Perpetual replica watch then relax.Oyster Perpetual is just a complicated and fancy way of saying that the watch is waterproof or that it has a self winding mechanism.
