Rolex Oyster Perpetual 114300
The Oyster Perpetual 114300 is the cheapest Rolex.
The Oyster Perpetual 114300 is a new model launched by Rolex in 2015. Before 114300, the sizes of Rolex Oyster Perpetual were relatively small, namely 26 mm, 31 mm, 34 mm, and 36 mm. 114300 increased the size of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual to 39 mm for the first time. Same size as Rolex Explorer 1. In the past, many people thought the Oyster Perpetual was small, so they were not interested in it. Now, the 114300 has increased the size to 39 mm, which aligns with the current size of men’s watches. There are more people interested in the Oyster Perpetual 114300. The Oyster Perpetual has always been Rolex’s entry-level watch. The 39mm 114,300 has a public price of only 43,300, making it Rolex’s lowest-priced men’s watch. To attract attention, Rolex played a color plate on 114300. The first batch of 114300 had gray plates, blue plates, and purple plates. Different plates were decorated with colored hour markers (blue plates had green dots, gray plates had blue dots, and purple plates had red dots). Exact watches replica.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual in different sizes and colors.
The size is correct, the color plate is colorful, and the price is low. Anyone who sees it will feel itchy. At this time, people tend to be impulsive and lose their “reason.” No matter what, it’s cheap anyway, so buy it first.
It’s cheap for a reason.
As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. I have experienced this sentence intensely over the years, especially regarding famous swiss replica watches and luxury goods. Spending less, doing more, and buying perfect things is impossible. There is no such thing as “high quality and low price” in luxury watches. When you spend less money, there are bound to be compromises.

The Oyster Perpetual is the entry-level Rolex watch and the simplest Rolex. The watch has no extra functions, only three hands for hours, minutes, and seconds. There is a Rolex crown logo at noon on the disk, luminous strip time scales at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, and the rest of the time scales are polished strip time scales (the hands and time scales are 18K white gold). The dial of 114300 is decorated with a radial pattern. The dial of Rolex Airmaster and Explorer, which also has three needles, is more complicated and fancy than that of Oyster Perpetual 114300.
On the contrary, Airmaster and Explorer are more expensive than 114300. The disk surface of 114300 is relatively simple. The advantage is that the disk surface is symmetrical and precise, and the color plate is prominent.

The case of the Oyster Perpetual 114300 is a standard Oyster case, with the bezel and case sides polished and the front brushed. All three rows of the Oyster bracelet are brushed, and the case and bracelet are treated similarly to sportswear. The clasp of the Oyster Perpetual 114300 does not have a quick length adjustment function. The length of the 114300 clasps can only be fine-tuned with tools. There is no sliding extension function like the Rolex Submariner or a folding extension function like the Tanyi Green Glass. The buckle configuration 114300 is relatively low and less convenient than other Rolexes.

The Oyster Perpetual 114300 uses caliber 3132 (remove the calendar from 3135). Now, Rolex has replaced most of its watches with the 32XX series movements represented by 3235. For entry-level Rolexes like the Oyster Perpetual, they will continue to use the 31XX series movements for a while. In replacing the new generation 32 movements, the Oyster Perpetual will be ranked relatively low. Fortunately, although the Rolex Oyster Perpetual uses the 3132 movements, it also has a green tag, which means that the 114300 can also achieve an error of +2/-2 per day. The travel time standards of the 31XX and 32XX movements are the same. Of. It’s just that the power 3132 is shorter, 48 hours of power. The actual running time of the 114300 I bought back then could reach the standard of +2/-2 per day.
The dial of 114300 has delicate radial patterns, and the case and bracelet are brushed over a large area.
So, a troubling question arises.
I have heard a saying that when you buy something cheap, you only feel happy when you buy it. After you buy it, you may feel a lot unhappy. When you buy something expensive, you only think unhappy when you buy it. After you buy it, you will always feel happy. This sentence is very accurate because I find that this happens often. 114300 is a similar situation. 114300 is a watch with a low public price. When I bought it, I felt stress-free and happy. However, after buying it, several thoughts appeared in my mind. For example:
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is water resistant to 100 meters.
- many people are wearing Rolex on the street. 114300 is the cheapest Rolex. When you see others are water ghosts, DJs, etc., they are all higher than 114300. You will feel that the watch on your hand could be better than others.
- The 114300 is an entry-level model, so it lacks some configurations, such as watch buckle adjustment. Other models have this function, and it is inconvenient to adjust the bracelet.
- 114300 is the most basic Rolex. Unlike Submariner, GMT, Lightning Needle, and Tanyitaner, which all have their own stories, 114300 is relatively plain.
The buckle of 114300 needs to have the function of quickly adjusting the length.
Therefore, only those who like 114300 are suitable to buy this watch. Otherwise, choose another Rolex watch.
