Rolex Oyster Perpetual Ref. 114300

There is a case to be made for base-model watches. You know, the version without any complications or extras.

Obviously these are often positioned as the entry level model and therefore usually a bit more affordable. But less obviously, they can be the prettiest! They are the purest form, closest to the original lines drawn up by the designer.

This Oyster Perpetual ref. 114300 in blue is the perfect example. It is Rolex distilled down to its essence. It is minimalist, clean and simple. And it is darn beautiful at that!

With its fully brushed Oyster bracelet, it maintains a sporty cool. Still, it is equally at home with formal attire.

Backstory

The Oyster Perpetual models by Rolex offer the purest, distilled form of Rolex magic. No complications, no frills. Just that superb quality we know and love from the house in simple, three-hand wristwatches.

The name Oyster Perpetual refers to two important Rolex technologies present in the watch. Oyster indicates the presence of several water-proofing technologies such as a screw-down crown and a screw-in case back. (Of course, any vintage watch should be treated as not water-resistant). Perpetual refers to a rotor-powered self-winding movement, which will be perpetually wound when worn. The nomenclature is a strong nod to Rolex history, as the Oyster case was patented in 1926 and their perpetual movement in 1931.

Note how many Rolex model names start with Oyster Perpetual and follow with a third specification, such as Datejust or Submariner. The lack of such additional labels indicate we are dealing with a no-complications, time-only Rolex.

A popular OP reference is the 1002. A clean, minimalist every day watch in a 34mm case. Its smooth bezel and Oyster bracelet, combined with a nice silver dial make it pretty much the most timeless and versatile watch you could dream of. A non-chronometer version with a different dial was sold as the Ref. 5500 Air-King.

Up until today, a whole range of different dial colors and sizes are available in the Oyster Perpetual range, so there is likely something to suit you. If it is a timeless, simple watch, made to the absolute highest standards you are after, the OP should not be underestimated.
