Watches & Wonders 2021: Rolex

This might be the most awaited moment of the week, the new Rolex releases. Here are a couple of pieces that caught our attention.

The New Explorer

The Explorer was born at the top of the world and developed in collaboration with legendary mountaineers. The Himalayas were the setting for their real-life laboratory, and in particular the highest peak, Mount Everest.

The new-generation Explorer and Explorer II are emblematic of Rolex’s perpetual drive to improve, its never- ending quest for excellence. And, without ever sacrificing performance – one of the range’s essential requirements – the watches are also elegant.

This year, the Oyster Perpetual Explorer is available in a yellow Rolesor version. Combining Oystersteel and 18 ct gold, Rolesor is a signature Rolex style that flawlessly blends strength and elegance.

Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona

The dial is often known as the face of the watch. At Rolex, dials shine with spirit and vitality, springing to life as light falls across their surface.

Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona

The new versions of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona are in 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold. Their meteorite dials bear witness to energy that has journeyed through time and space. This material displays patterns that were formed as the heart of an asteroid cooled slowly on its journey through the cosmos – a process that takes millions of years.

Rolex selects metallic meteorite according to very strict aesthetic criteria. Each fragment has a unique internal structure, making every Cosmograph Daytona with a meteorite dial truly one of a kind.
