The Rolex Oyster Precision was created in the 1930s and is held today in high esteem amongst vintage watch collectors. Those who wear the Oyster Precision are paying homage to a distinguished era of watchmaking. It wasn’t until the latter part of the 20th century that the larger timepieces, like many contemporary watches of today, came into fashion. The Rolex Oyster Precision is a member of the Rolex Oyster family, and as such bares the Oyster’s legendary qualities. The original Oyster worked itself into the history books time and time again throughout the mid-1900s. The Oyster watch was the first waterproof watch in the world, in addition to finding itself on the wrists of many boundary defying dare devils, such as race car driver Malcolm Campbell when he set the land speed record in 1935.
