Entry-level is an interesting term for luxury. For example, an “entry-level” car like a Honda, Toyota or Nissan is very different from an “entry-level” Porsche. Both have similar titles, but are worlds apart. So when discussing the “entry-level” Rolex Oyster Perpetual, I feel the term is psychologically bad for the watch. After all, what is an entry-level Rolex? It is the most widely known luxury watchmaker in the world. During my time with this replica, I tried to get the “basic” name out of my head. This is a fake Rolex.
Most people in the world of watch lovers forget that Fake Rolex was known for its tool watches in the early days. Models like the log type are certainly important to their history. However, for the past 70 years, Rolex has been the watch of choice for accomplished divers, adventurers and car enthusiasts. It wasn’t until the introduction of the pure gold Yacht-Master in the 1990s that Rolex made a deliberate transition to making a status symbol. I think this Oyster Perpetual 39mm is a modern interpretation of the roots of these tool watches.
This watch is the essence of what makes Rolex so good. The crisp Oyster bracelet is attached to the sturdy and refined stainless steel case. This watch features a stunning rhodium dial that creates a sunburst effect in the right light. Light blue markers accent the edges of the dial, adding a cheerful pop of color. This watch is a three-hand watch. It has only one second-hand complication and is the most original fake Rolex out there. A smooth polished bezel outlines the dial, adding a layer of texture and depth to the case. Rolex Oyster Perpetual
Rolex offers the Oyster Perpetual in 26mm, 31mm, 34mm, 36mm and 39mm. This provides enough range to fit anyone’s wrist. Rolex describes this watch as “the purest oyster,” and it couldn’t be more accurate. It comes in a few different movements, the one I wear is the Rolex 3132 self-winding mechanical movement. It contains 31 jewels and has a power reserve of about 48 hours.
Oyster Perpetual falls into an interesting category. Because it is so refined, it offers more versatility than watches like the Submariner or Datejust. Its case measures 39mm and is only 11mm thick, and since it has no diving bezel, it wears a lot more elegantly than a undated diver’s watch. I would say it does wear less than a 40mm watch, but only a little. This watch really shines in a more casual setting. It helps to dress up casual t-shirts and jeans. I equate it with a perfect pair of white sneakers, but on your wrist.
The polished finish on this case also makes it easy to pair the watch with your favorite “financial man” Patagonian vest and crisp white buttons. I think the reduced size makes the Oyster Perpetual more understated – not talking too loudly, but simply done.
I can say I don’t care about this brand. However, it’s fantastic to say “yes, it’s a fake Rolex” for less than $7,000. The Oyster Perpetual is enough to reward yourself with a Rolex without making your boss question your salary. It is similar to a Porsche Boxster. There are plenty of options, like the vintage Datejust, for a lot less. However, Oyster Perpetual is really the best way to get modern products from the brand. From an Apple perspective, I find this watch face more interesting than the Explorer’s (I know that’s blasphemy). The use of color makes people feel relaxed and happy. This shows that the Swiss still know how to have a little fun. If you’re looking for Rolex’s modern reliability combined with a more conservative design language, then you might want to check out this “entry-level” watch.
