Released in 2020 as Rolex revitalized the entire Oyster Perpetual collection, the new OP36 ref. ref. 126000 features the incredible in-house Rolex cal. 3230 movement within its 36mm entirely satin-brushed stainless steel case. Featuring 70 hours of power reserve with COSC certification and Rolex's own "Superlative Chronometer" certification, this new movement has ensured that the latest Oyster Perpetuals remain accurate to within -2/+2 seconds a day and feature the same level of horological engineering as any other flagship offering from the Genevan brand. Aside from its movement, the Oyster Perpetual was also given an aesthetic overhaul in the form of a selection of new and immediately recognizable Stella dial reminiscent options. Ranging from turquoise blue to yellow to green to coral red and an assortment of other colors, these new vibrant dials fuelled a massive shift in public opinion for the Oyster Perpetual as it went from a relatively obscure offering to an instant hit overnight.
