Here we have a 2020 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Green Dial 126000 with a 36mm OysterSteel case that gently curves over your wrist with finely tapered lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 43mm and a case thickness of 11mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. Brushed and polished surfaces transition with crisp lines. On the right side a signed screw-down Twinlock crown, the smooth polished bezel holds a sapphire crystal above a striking Rolex OP Green dial made up of six layers of lacquer for a perfect finish, around the outer flange, we have the engraved repeating Rolex rehaut. An outer minute track is precisely executed and applied double and single baton indexes are filled with Chromalight which is a Rolex proprietary luminance marking the hours, slender steel baton hands have Chromalight infill and are complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand, at 12 o’clock we have the applied Rolex crown printed underneath “Rolex Oyster Perpetual” and at 6 o’clock “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” completes this elegant timepiece. On the reverse, a coin-edged case back, inside an automatic Rolex Cal. 3230, 31 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, this COSC Certified movement was launched in 2020 and has a Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex which provides efficiency and reliability, it is resistant to shock and magnetic fields.

This series of Oyster Perpetual with these great dials are fantastic and a real show-stopper among the Rolex lineup, as a vintage fan the original Day-Date Stella dials are to dream for, so having something far more accessible and still fun is a great move by Rolex. This example is in fantastic, lightly worn, condition and comes as a complete set, so if this is one you're interested in, don't hesitate and snap it up whilst you can.
In 1905, German-born Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law Alfred Davis set up a company in London that imported Swiss movements which are installed in British cases and sold to jewellers who put their names on the dials. Recognising the potential for their brand, Wilsdorf created the brand name Rolex in 1908. In 1910, a Rolex became the first wristwatch to carry the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, awarded by the Official Watch Rating Centre in Bienne, Switzerland. Demand for Rolex watches rose swiftly, and British taxes on the Swiss movements Rolex used prompted Wilsdorf to move the business to Geneva, Switzerland, in 1919. With production costs lowered, Wilsdorf quickly set out to solve the age-old problem of moisture and dust entering a watch case and damaging the movement. The Rolex watchmakers came up with a fully sealed watch case, which Wilsdorf named the Oyster, and released to an appreciative audience in 1926. In 1931, Rolex introduced the first automatic winding wristwatch, giving it the legendary name Oyster Perpetual. In 1945, they released Datejust. The Datejust was the first watch to have the date jump instantaneously at midnight. The 1950s saw a whole lot of releases such as the Air-King (1958), the Explorer (1953), the Submariner (1953), the GMT Master (1955), the Day-Date (1956), the electromagnetic field resistant Milgauss (1956), the Lady-Datejust (1957) and the first Deep Sea model (1960). Wilsdorf’s death in 1960, saw ownership of Rolex S.A. (a collection of sub-companies) passed to the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation which was founded by Wilsdorf in 1945, the mission of which is simply to sustain Rolex S.A. indefinitely.
