Rolex Oyster Gold and Rolex Oyster Perpetual Gold explained
Rolex has used the name "Oyster" since 1926, when the first waterproof watch case was introduced. Thus, every Rolex watch, except for the Cellini, has what is called an Oyster case. They bear this name because, due to their water-resistance of at least 100 metres, they protect the movement like a seashell protects the pearl inside. A Rolex Oyster Gold is therefore nothing other than a waterproof gold watch. The addition "Perpetual", as with the Oyster Perpetual in gold, on the other hand, stands for the automatic winding of the movement.
Each gold alloy used has a fineness of 18 carats (750/1000). The Swiss manufacturer operates its own gold foundry at one of its locations, where the gold alloys developed in-house are manufactured and processed.
Due to the importance of the luxurious material, there are numerous Rolex Oyster gold models. While the Day-Date is still offered exclusively in gold and platinum, most other watches are available in stainless steel, bicolour or full gold. Due to the long success story of the traditional manufacturer, you can get numerous collections in gold in different conditions: new, used or vintage. In addition to Rolex Oyster gold watches for men, the manufacturer offers the Lady Datejust in gold — an attractive women's model that can be configured in many ways.

Bicolour as an alternative: Rolex Oyster Perpetual in steel/gold
In addition to the Rolex Oyster gold models, the manufacturer also offers numerous steel/gold models in almost every collection. These are either made of stainless steel and yellow gold or stainless steel and Everose gold (rose gold). The advantage of these so-called bicolour models is that they are simpler and more robust than solid gold. Stainless steel is harder than gold and thus more resistant to scratches or notches. At the same time, bicolour combines the resistance of stainless steel with the luxurious look of gold. The bicolour models in the Submariner and Datejust collections are the most sought-after.
