At the end of August 2020, Rolex unveiled its new Oyster Perpetual collection, which caused a lot of excitement both inside and outside the watch industry. Not only was the colourful lacquer a delight, but the movement was also upgraded from a 3130 to a more anti-magnetic 3230. 41mm was added to replace the original 39mm in terms of size, but the watch within this operation was a 36mm. Shortly after the announcement, the watch swept through Little Red Book… Perhaps because the coloured face is more appealing to younger buyers. Whereas the Oyster Perpetual had previously been the choice of the Matching Sailor Daytona, this generation of the colour-faced Oyster Perpetual is a change of pace, and even requires a price increase to be acquired on the secondary market.
After the launch of the new model, I was intrigued by the photos of the KOLs on Weibo. I liked the sky blue side myself, but after showing it to the Queen, I said I liked the green side, so I called the dealer and ordered both pieces, which led to this assignment. The blue side is hotter than the green side overseas, so I may have to wait a while. I couldn’t resist wearing the green side of the Queen’s watch when it arrived.
After playing with it for a while, it’s not hard to understand why the new model is so hot. The new finish is really beautiful, and dealer called me after delivering it to me and said he saw my piece and ordered a green one for himself, too. The 36mm Oyster Perpetual is a breath of fresh air when steel sports watches are generally around 40mm nowadays, and it’s also very friendly for people with small wrists like me. Without further ado, here is the text.
The watch itself.
The watch arrived with a protective plastic ring around the outer ring, not cutting corners just because it’s a low-end line, in line with the GMT model.
Separately, there is a warranty card, a warranty guide and an instruction manual and hanging label.
It’s really quite green, and those buying an American stock might consider looking into getting one hahaha.
By this time Rolex had used a new warranty card and did not mark my name on the card.
The card has a stamped gold edge, is slightly thicker than the various plastic credit cards and is well made.
The green lacquer finish is very nice in sufficient light.
The coloured lacquer finish is reminiscent of the stella finish that used to be found on daydate.
Compared to the stella finish, the current coloured finish is much brighter and more glossy, and I wonder if this will change in a few years or so.
The so-called “aperture” is, in my opinion, a little sportier than the dogtooth ring, but the scratches will also be more visible.
The sapphire crystal can be seen slightly above the bezel, which also slightly reduces the possibility of scratches on the bezel.
The lugs, very sharp, the condition of the Fake Rolex lugs is one of the easier ways to tell if they have been polished or not.
Although more and more watches are now polished with black technology (laser filler gold, etc.), it is increasingly difficult to tell if a watch is of initial colour.
Models with Oyster in their name now naturally use an Oyster steel bracelet.
The more high-end models, such as the Ditonnas, have a brushed middle part of the strap, which will be more resistant to scratches.
I’m not particularly bothered by the fact that the crown of the watch is not correct.
To ensure water resistance, the Oyster Perpetual has a screw-in lockable crown.
The sides are also mirror-polished and very prone to fingerprints and scratches.
The clasp on the UK Fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual is relatively easier to operate than the locking clasp on the Coke Circle GMT, and the middle section is brushed to make it less prone to scratches.
The internal finish of the folding clasp is also more refined, with a polished finish.
Personally, I welcome the fact that more and more big brands are introducing watches with coloured dials, and I’m more of a fan of this myself. Colourful dials inject more life into a watch than the traditional neutral colour dials such as black, white and grey. And the big brands have executed this idea very well, as there is a clear trend towards a younger replica watch industry, with all sorts of new materials, new designs and a riveting effort to expand the buyer base. Of course, the biggest beneficiaries of this trend are us, the consumers, who are able to choose from a growing number of fresh and excellent models.
Messing with a 5740/1g picked up on the same day, the radiating pattern makes for a more layered colour compared to the smooth lacquer finish.
Compared to the 5711’s blue and black finish, the 5740’s blue is significantly more striking, and my friend calls it electric blue.
There’s really nothing to fault in terms of wear, it’s very light and comfortable.
I had actually worn it a number of times by the time of the shoot, but I was quite relieved that the polished surface scratches, which I was worried about, were surprisingly few.
I’m looking forward to my other watch,replica rolex watches the Tiffany Blue Oyster Perpetual.
