I’m a big fan of watches. Can’t get enough of them. I think it started with my uncle back when I was a kid. The first watch of his that I remember taking notice of was a beautiful onyx Movado. There is something about a nice watch that can add layers of elegance to a man. Of course when it comes to elevating a guy’s stature, the Rolex reigns supreme.
As far as I’m concerned it’s Michael Jordan, the name that all others will be compared to and never reach. The Rolex excels because their watches are both beautiful to look at and well constructed. No matter your needs, they’ll have a product you’ll feel was made for you.
Now you might not be a watch enthusiast like me, so you may only be looking for something that will last you for the long haul, and that’s perfectly okay. If you want a timeless accessory others will marvel at that also accentuates any outfit, then you’ll want to use your money on the new 39 mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual.
It’s a must-have for the collector and novice alike. The Oyster Perpetual comes with an incredible five different case sizes with the latest being the 39 mm. The new model also comes with updates to the dials, including a gorgeous dark rhodium with a sunray finish. It even has a sans fluted bezel, and comes on an Oyster bracelet rather than a Jubilee.
If you crack open the Oyster Perpetual, you’ll find a plethora of different movements that vary based on case size, but are all fantastic. They of course also have COSC certification as you would assume. The Oyster Perpetual is by far the most versatile collection that Rolex has released thus far. No matter your preferences, you will find something that you want within this new 39 mm collection. The watches are gorgeous, but without being too gaudy, giving you the understated and classy look that will get you the right kind of attention where ever you go.
One of the best things about the Oyster Perpetual though is the price. For this kind of beauty and practicality, you’d expect to shell out a small fortune. After all, the ‘only watch you’ll ever need’ is a bold claim. However, the Authorized Retailer price is set at only $5,700, which is incredible for the kind of luxury you’re getting. You’ll definitely want to get your hands on one of these. Comparing it to other watches of its caliber and tolerance it is actually quite affordable especially with Tudor coming out with the COSC certified in-house movement in the Tudor North Flag and charging $3,550.
