However, there has always been a separate collection of watches in which all insignificant things have been stripped away, leaving only three hands to tell the time, not even something as inconspicuous as a date display. This is officially the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, the brand’s cheapest and arguably most versatile offering. While the Oyster Perpetual represents an entry point to owning a replica Rolex, this model is virtually unavailable at the retail level (like most stainless-steel Rolex watches) after the collection was updated in 2020.
While not on the scale of a Datejust or President, the fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual has released a fairly wide selection of dial colors throughout its history. Also, with the latest update for 2020, the bright and vibrant dial colors are the only reason the collection has been so popular over the past few years. While there is some overlap across the collection, some are specific to certain sizes.
Some have become true favorites, especially bright and colorful options reminiscent of the vintage Stella dials on old Datejust and Day-Date watches. Turquoise blue and yellow are the most popular colors, followed by green and coral red. As with most Rolex stainless steel watches, the current Oyster Perpetual is completely sold out at retailers, while select dial colours for the 36mm and 41mm models are available on the used market at the original new retail price several times.
The result is a range of watches that can be worn as both formal and casual wear, depending largely on the dial colour chosen. You’re on the sporty end of the spectrum if you opt for brightly colored dials, while muted tones will make your watch look more decent.
So, who is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual for? Even though the brand is by far the most famous watchmaker in the world and has created some of the most collectible timepieces, many replica Rolex buyers still just want a good watch that they can wear every day for the rest of their lives. It has to be affordable enough, functional enough to go with anything, sturdy enough to wear every day, and reliable enough to last a lifetime.
