Right! To me, Rolex is about an Oyster case with a simple dial

That's how I grew up to recognize them.

I like a lot the Oyster perpetual !!

White .. or black dial ... ...  

Both evergreens, for sure. [nt]

The white is great too

The specific shade of white is unique in my opinion and goes very well with a summer background!

Yes, for sure, except for the Explorer ...

Simple, classic and sporty !! ...  

Yes, definitely! [nt]

That was my closest alternative

I just found the OP to be a little more dressy and liked the steel crown on the dial too. A little detail is also the shape of the bezel: flat for the Explo and convex for the OP.

Agree x 3

That is quite a commitment to this model!

Well done - funny how dial colour seems to influence perceived size

The origin of Rolex

 
 By: TomKxx : March 26th, 2020-20:45
Since 1926, OP was created and offsprings like Datejust, Submariner and Explorer were created. The pure and quintessential of Rolex which many have been swayed because of hype towards steel sports watches. ...  

Your lume seems much stronger and more blue than mine (green and quite weak)

I got my black one early (probably one of the first ones in my country), back in 2018. Could Rolex have changed the lume material since then?

Mine is 114300 OP39 (bought it in Feb this year). Yes, now that you mentioned it. The line of OP should more greenish than blueish hue.

The difference of lume colour between my OP and Sub is quite obvious. ...  

Thanks for the comparison! It makes it clear

The lume strength and "endurance" is the only minor gripe I have about the OP - it is on the weak side
