Rolex has released an exciting selection of watches, with a refreshed view of four iconic collections released on the 1st September.
Beginning with the Rolex Submariner, one of the most iconic collection of watches in the world. Known as the watch that conquered the deep, the Submariner exemplifies the historic links between Rolex and diving. Both the Submariner and Submariner Date are presented in a redesigned and slightly larger 41mm case, with profiles highlighted by light reflections on the case side and lugs. The new watches have been updated with a remodelled bracelet.
The dial’s luminescent Chromalight display is an innovative feature improving legibility in dark environments, guiding the diver on their quest through the depths. Powering the updated collection is the new generation calibre 3230 (Submariner) and calibre 3235 (Submariner Date). These self-winding, mechanical movements are developed and manufactured by Rolex. Both calibres boast a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
Holding true to its aesthetic heritage, the new Rolex Submariner in Oystersteel has a black dial and rotatable bezel with matching Cerachrom insert.
As well as this, two versions of the Submariner Date, one in Oystersteel and another in 18ct white gold, bring original colour combinations, with their dial and bezel in different hues. The first watch blends a black dial with a green bezel, while the second displays time across a black dial, with a blue bezel.
Another collection to see a transformation in 2020 is the Rolex Sky-Dweller. Rolex introduces a new version of the Sky-Dweller, fitted with an Oysterflex bracelet. This 18ct yellow gold timepiece is the first reference in the collection to be worn on this innovative bracelet made of high-performance elastomer. The 42mm watch displays time across a black dial with 18ct yellow gold hour markers.
The collection is powered by the calibre 9001 movement which is entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. The Sky-Dweller on Oysterflex bracelet is also available in 18ct Everose gold.
The Rolex Datejust has long been the classic watch of reference. In 2020, the collection receives new additions with four new white Rolesor versions of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31. Leading today’s new pieces, and possibly our favourite here at DMR, is this Datejust 31 featuring a bezel set with 46 brilliant-cut diamonds and displaying time across an aubergine, sunray-finish dial, adorned with a diamond-set Roman numeral VI.
Worn on either the classic Rolex Oyster bracelet or jubilee links, the Datejust 31 is powered by the calibre 2236 movement, a new generation movement offering fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and reliability.
The Oyster Perpetual has also received an update to the collection with the unveiling of a new 41mm case size. Descended from the original Rolex Oyster, the world’s first waterproof watch produced by the brand in 1926, these new pieces are chronometer wristwatches in their purest form. The Oyster Perpetual 36 and 41 are equipped with the calibre 3230 movement- the same as the Rolex Submariner. Powering the Oyster Perpetual 28, 31 and 34 is the calibre 2232 movement.
As well as bringing a new size to the collection, the new Oyster Perpetual 41 collection unveils some exciting new features including the silver, sun-ray dial variation is graced with hands and hour markers in 18ct yellow gold. An elegant finishing touch to this beautiful new piece. All watches from the new Oyster Perpetual collection feature the Chromalight display on the hands and hour markers, and are available in a range of vibrant dial options.
