The dial is silver with applied blue Arabic numberal hour markers, and an outer minute track with Arabic numeral 5-minute/seconds.

It has bidirectional self-winding by the perpetual rotor, and a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring.

The Oyster Perpetual Datejust II was introduced in 2009 - a larger 41 mm version of the classic 1945 perpetual datejust, the first self-winding, water resistant chronometer wristwatch with a window date display, and the first Rolex equipped with the distinctive Cyclops lens that magnifiies the date.
