The Oyster Perpetual is Rolex’s entry-level model providing all the fundamentals without any of the frills. It’s a dependable timepiece that boasts all the signature Rolex design details that we’ve all come to love coupled with solid mechanisms we’ve come to expect from the Swiss watchmaking giant. Remember, all Oyster Perpetual watches run on automatic Rolex movements—even the ladies stainless steel Oyster Perpetual watches.
The Oyster Perpetual is also one of the brand’s oldest collections still in production today, illustrating its staying power. Plus, further emphasizing the appeal of the Oyster Perpetual is that it’s also one of the most affordable Rolex collections. In fact, one of the least expensive is the ladies’ stainless steel Oyster Perpetual watch, thus making it a great starter luxury watch.
As Christmas is just over the horizon, a ladies stainless steel Oyster Perpetual would make a fantastic gift too. Let’s have a closer look at some options.
The ladies stainless steel Oyster Perpetual may be a straightforward time-only Rolex watch, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t variety within the collection. On the contrary, the ladies’ stainless steel Oyster Perpetual lineup offers plenty of alternatives.
First, there are several sizes to choose from. Older versions of ladies’ stainless steel Oyster Perpetual range from 24mm to 26mm while contemporary models sport cases measuring either 26mm or 31mm.
Second, there are the bracelet options. The women’s steel Oyster Perpetual watch used to be offered with a choice of a sporty Oyster bracelet or a dressier Jubilee bracelet. However, current Oyster Perpetual watches are only paired with Oyster bracelets. Alternatively, you can always add your own creative spin to it. Switching out the metal bracelet for a lush leather strap changes up the look of the watch.
Lastly, dial variations are diverse. In addition to the abundance of shades, there are also different hour markers from stick to Roman numerals to Arabic numerals.
Rolex never furnished the ladies stainless steel Oyster Perpetual with factory diamonds. However, there are plenty of custom diamond models to choose from in the secondary market. Or, you can even take a non-diamond version and customize it with gems according to your own tastes.
The simplicity of the Oyster Perpetual makes it a great candidate for diamond embellishing. The smooth bezel takes well to a stunning ring of diamonds or other gems. Moreover, the minimal dial is also the ideal candidate for the addition of diamond hour markers or even a blanket of diamond pavé.
The ladies stainless steel Oyster Perpetual watch provides simplicity in the best way possible. You can certainly wear it as it or customize it to match your own style—it all just works beautifully.
