What does Superlative Chronometer mean? Superlative Chronometer is Rolex’s precision standards of -2/+2 sec/day found in all their current watches. It beats the COSC standards of -4/+6 sec/day by at least doubling its requirements. It’s followed by the Officially Certified inscriptions on all models except for the Cellini line.

What does Oyster Perpetual mean? Oyster Perpetual watches from Rolex are automatic, water resistant watches. Oyster cases are water resistant to at least 100m of depth. Perpetual movements are running as long as the watch is worn, as it is wound automatically.

Does Rolex use ETA movements? Rolex doesn’t use ETA movement and never has. Since 2004 when they acquired Aegler SA (who was their subcontractor for the movements), Rolex manufactures their own movements. As such, these are in-house or manufacture movements.
