The Carthusian movements of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual

Unmatched chronometric precision

Going further into the details of the movements of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches, it is possible to observe components with exceptional peculiarities. Starting with the variable inertia balance wheel, equipped with Microstella gold nuts that ensure excellent stability. The spiral with Rolex curve is fixed, on the other hand, to the balance wheel bridge and brought back towards the center of gravity; and the concentric development that is created defines balance-spiral oscillations capable of giving greater precision to the whole. The oscillation frequency in question is 28,800 vibrations per hour (ie 8 per second) and gives the product an unimaginable accuracy.

Bridge, lubricants and finishes

A Rolex Oyster Perpetual, whether new or pre-owned, has the technical parts just described. To which others are added, such as the bridge of the balance wheel. In fact, it is able to provide a stable positioning of the regulating organ, improving its strength and rigidity.

Accuracy and resistance

If you want to fully understand the objective quality of Rolex Oyster Perpetual chronographs, it is necessary to make another focus on its technical parts. The regulating body determines, through its oscillations, the accuracy of these watches; the paraflex developed by Rolex is a unique and highly effective anti ‑ impact device as it ensures impact resistance up to 50% higher. And the unmistakable (as well as harmonious) ticking of the Rolexes passes through the escapement mechanism, essential for a smooth measurement of time.
