Rolex unveiled one of its most innovative and stunning watch collections at BaselWorld 2012. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II Watches were unveiled to the audience. This stunning watch collection plays off of the extremely popular features of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust collection, which was released in 2009. However, these popular features are updated to meet the demands of advancing technology. The Oyster Perpetual Datejust II watches feature impressive watch case designs, state of the art technology, and a self-winding mechanism that allows the watch to perfectly tell time no matter where you are in the world.
The first stunning features of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II watches is the design and features of the watch case. On the outside, the round watch case is made completely out of specialized corrosion-resistant 904L steel. This steel prevents the watch from becoming dinged, scratched or dented. The front of the watch features a crystal Cyclops lens that allows wears to clearly read the time and date on the watch. The Cyclops lens is completely scratchproof and is able to withstand a variety of tough conditions before becoming scratched or broken.
Another stunning feature of Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II watches is the waterproof qualities. All watches are able to withstand a depth of 100 meters, or 330 feet. Unlike other waterproof cases and lenses, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust II is designed to have the waterproof system securely screwed down to the back of the watch. This allows the watch to give a smooth appearance when worn, and prevents an overly bulky appearance. The waterproof features of the watch don’t just stop at the watch case. The strap, crystal lenses, and inner clockwork mechanisms are all waterproof and can withstand depths of up to 100 meters.
The last stunning feature of Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II watches is the internal structure and components. Inside every Oyster Perpetual Datejust II watch is a Calibre 3136 mechanism. This is a self-winding, internal timekeeping mechanism. The Calibre 3136 is a certified Swiss chronometer. Swiss chronometers are only certified when they have withstood the high testing standards of the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. Another amazing feature of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust II watch is the tiny parachrom hairspring that is exclusive to Rolex. The oscillator, a tiny blue parachrom hairspring made out of patented alloys, sits in the heart of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust II and keeps the watch running smoothly.
