Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39mm Ref. 114300 Full set
We are happy to offer a real future classic by the brand with the crown!
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39mm Ref. 114300 is a real fan-favorite, as well as a watch-media-favorite, but then it suddenly got discontinued just last year. The popular 39mm variant had only been in production for a couple of years. The most popular versions, the white and this black dial variant, were even discontinued after a measly two years! They were replaced by the new 41mm version, which is a lot less of a crowd-pleasing size and pretty much impossible to buy nowadays. The 39mm Oyster Perpetual is bound to become a future classic then!
This could just be the perfect modern everyday watch. It is built like a tank. It is equal parts sporty and dressy. It goes with any outfit and can endure pretty much any activity. And it does it all with quiet dignity, staying mostly under the radar. If you had to live with one watch only (our definition of hell, but ok!) you could do a whole lot worse than this! If you enjoy the look of vintage Rolex OP’s, Datejusts, etc. but you are deterred by the 36mm size, this is the perfect contemporary equivalent.
This specimen has hardly been worn. You have to look extremely closely to spot any signs of wear at all. It is still covered by Rolex warranty and comes complete with all the original accessories, box, and papers. Our only advice: be quick, because these are getting harder to find!

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.
