Rolex have introduced their latest creations in the Oyster and Cellini Collections, and as a leading brand of the Swiss watch industry, it is well worth the wait.
This year’s flagship models include a new generation of the professional divers’ model, the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller. Recreated for its 50th anniversary, the new model features a 43mm case and new calibre 3235 movement. For the first time, the new Sea-Dweller is equipped with a Cyclops lens on the crystal at 3 o’clock to enhance the reading of the date.
During the unveiling, a new model has been introduced to the Cellini collection, the Cellini Moonphase. With an exclusive display of the phases of the moon, the new watch is driven by a self-winding mechanical movement entirely manufactured by Rolex.
The new Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II features a new dial, and new hands characteristic of Rolex Professional models, enhancing legibility and sharpening the aesthetic appeal of this unique regatta chronograph. The new dial has been designed with a triangular hour marker at 12 o’clock and a rectangular marker at 6 o’clock for a more intuitive reading of the watch.
New versions of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona in yellow, white or Everose gold have adopted the innovative Oysterflex bracelet, and are equipped with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel. A blend of high technology and sleek aesthetics, the new models pay tribute to the heritage of this legendary chronograph.
The classic watch for the traveller, the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller has been introduced for the first time in yellow Rolesor and white Rolesor. The dials now feature index hour markers, modernizing the aesthetics of the classic timepiece.
The new generation of the classic Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 is now available in 904L steel, and also a white Rolesor version. Reflecting the versions introduced in 2016, the new Datejust 41 watches are equipped with the redesigned 41 mm case.
