This is the time of the year every watch enthusiast is waiting for. After countless cancellations and delays, watch releases have been scarce this year and that is why we should rejoice, the new Rolex watches are here!
The Oyster Perpetual Submariner and Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date are the professional divers’ watches par excellence. Both watches now boast a redesigned, slightly larger 41 mm case – whose profile is highlighted by the light reflections from the case sides and lugs – and are fitted on a remodeled bracelet.
The Submariners also feature brand new movements the calibre 3230 and the calibre 3235 in the Submariner Date. The new Submariner in Oystersteel has a black dial and rotatable bezel with matching Cerachrom insert.
The Submariner Date is available in two versions, one in Oystersteel and the other in 18 ct white gold.
Rolex is presenting this year four new white Rolesor versions (combining Oystersteel and 18 ct white gold) of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31.
It is the first watch, featuring a bezel set with 46 brilliant-cut diamonds with an aubergine sunray-finish dial that is adorned with a diamond-set Roman VI.
The three other versions are fitted respectively with mint green, sunray-finish dial, white lacquer dial, or dark grey, sunray-finish dial, and a fluted bezel in 18 ct white gold. The hands and index hour markers or Roman numerals on all four watches are in 18 ct white gold. The light reflections on the case sides and lugs highlight the elegant profile of the 31 mm Oyster case.
The Oyster perpetual range has always been an iconic line for Rolex and this year the watchmaker has added a new model to the range, the Oyster Perpetual 41, as well as versions of the Oyster Perpetual 36. The new models feature dials in vivid colors giving a more energetic vibe to this model.
The Oyster Perpetual 36 is unveiled with a dynamic and vibrant new look, offering lacquer dials in five new colors: candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral red, and green.
The new generation Oyster Perpetual model has a Chromalight display: the hands and hour markers are coated or filled with a luminescent material that emits a long-lasting blue glow in dark conditions.
The Oyster Perpetual 41 and the new versions of the Oyster Perpetual 36 are equipped with calibre 3230, a movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology, launched by Rolex this year.
Rolex is presenting a new 18 ct yellow gold version of its Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller, fitted with an Oysterflex bracelet. The watch is the first in the Classic category to include this innovative bracelet made of high-performance elastomer. It also features a bright black, sunray-finish dial with hands and hour markers in 18 ct yellow gold.
This new version is of course equipped with the fluted, rotatable bezel unique to the Sky-Dweller, which is used to set the watch in conjunction with the Ring Command system. It also has a Chromalight display. This new version of the Sky-Dweller is equipped with calibre 9001, at the forefront of watchmaking technology.
Watch aficionados must be debating amongst themselves now, they must think about which watch they’ll try to cop. I think the most exciting part will be trying to secure the model you really want.
