Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39

Post by koimaster » May 25th 2020, 7:04pm

There’s a concept in the world of watch enthusiasts that’s referred to as ‘only one watch’. For the majority of the population, this concept is better known as ‘normality’. But if you’re the sort of person who has a watch for work, one for the weekend as well as a dedicated timepiece for special occasions, there’s a good chance the thought of committing to just one will fill you with dread. How could you choose? Can you live without a chronograph? And do you go for fine finishing or bulletproof reliability? Well, allow us to humbly suggest that all you really need a watch to do is tell the time. Everything else is superfluous. We’d also argue that you need a watch that can handle the daily rigours of regular wear and still scrub up OK. It also needs a timeless style that won’t look out of place on your wrist in 50 years’ time. Not an easy set of criteria, but the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 more than nails it. If you could only ever have one watch, you could do a lot worse than one of these.

I would be really bored if I only had one watch, even if it were one of these.
So would I.


As for the OP39, the black and white versions are OK. These "colourful" ones - nope.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

The OP is on my short list, and I'd even go down to 34mm as I can easily pull that off. The problem? Finding one. Right before the shutdown, I couldn't find an OP at any authorized dealer in my area - and this is the NYC/LI region.
My AD is open (Reeds). I am happy to look into one if you are ready to pull the trigger.

Nice of you. I still intend to trowl around again, but not for a few weeks.
