Rolex Oyster Perpetual & Oyster Precision – What’s The Difference?

Rolex Oyster PerpetualRolex have been around for along time and will be around for even longer. With such a diverse history comes an epic range of
models.┬áThere are two watch “models” that generally confuse people – Oyster Perpetual and Oyster Precision.



So what is the difference?
Well for starters the Oyster range preceded the Oyster Perpetual. The Oyster featured a hand winding movement within the Oyster casing. The Oyster Perpetual introduced Rolex’s automatic movement within the oyster casing. To be precise they are┬áboth the same movement but one is fitted with an auto wind mechanism.

So where does Precision come from? Precision actually isn’t a model name. Rolex used the wording precision on their Oyster lines that featured a jeweled precision movement.

There you have it, Oyster precision isn’t actual a model of Rolex watch. Infact, neither is the Oyster Perpetual. It is a product line and there are a number of models that fall under the category of Oyster Perpetual. The precision name just confirms the make up of the movement.
