As every year by these dates, coinciding with the celebration in Basel (Switzerland) of a new edition of Baselworld, the largest and most important international watch and jewelry show, Rolex presents its new models for this 2019 season, a fact that represents a milestone in the sector and that every watchmaker loves with great interest.
Thus, the novelties that the Swiss firm has presented this year are the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42, a new model among Rolex nautical watches, and which has a diameter of 42 mm, something unprecedented in the Yacht-Master range, with the new generation caliber 3235. Made of 18-carat white gold, it is equipped with an Oysterflex bracelet with Oysterlock safety clasp in 18-carat white gold and Rolex Glidelock extension system.
The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller is proposed for the first time in a yellow Rolesor version (combination of Oystersteel steel and 18-carat yellow gold). The name “Sea-Dweller” appears in yellow on the dial of this new modality.
The Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II, in Oystersteel steel, with bi-directional rotating bezel and 24-hour Cerachrom disc bicolor in blue and black ceramics, is equipped with a Jubilé bracelet. Presented in 2018, the new generation 3285 caliber equips this new modality.
The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 houses for the first time the 3255 caliber, a movement at the forefront of watch technology. In 18K yellow, white or Everose gold, the new modalities of this emblematic model are proposed with a sphere adorned with a concentric gradientor made of ornamental stone, or completely pavé of diamonds with an hourly outline drawn by sapphires with the colors of the rainbow.
The new modalities in yellow, white or Everose Rolesor version (combination of Oystersteel steel and 18-carat gold) of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 and the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 all have a refined sphere of timeless elegance. They are equipped, respectively, with 3235 and 2236 caliber, new generation movements introduced in these two models in 2018.
The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is also available in 18-carat yellow gold with black lacquered pavé dial. On the bezel, the tachymeter scale has given way to 36 trapeze-cut diamonds.
Like all Rolex watches, these new references have the Superlative Chronometer certification, specific to the Swiss brand and symbolized by the green seal. This certification also guarantees the respect of more stringent performance criteria than watchmaking standards in terms of precision, tightness, automatic winding and autonomy, and is accompanied by a five-year international warranty.
