OYSTER PERPETUAL SUBMARINER The new-generation Oyster Perpetual Submariner and Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date are presented with an updated design, characterized by a slightly larger 41 mm case and a bracelet with a broader centre link. True to the original model, the new Submariner – in Oystersteel – has a black dial and matching Cerachrom bezel insert. The first version of the Submariner Date being presented is also made of Oystersteel and brings together a black dial and green bezel insert. A second, yellow Rolesor version of the watch (combining Oystersteel and 18 ct yellow gold) has a royal blue dial and blue bezel insert. The third, 18 ct white gold version features a black dial and blue bezel insert. The Oyster Perpetual Submariner is equipped with calibre 3230 – launched this year – while the Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date is fitted with calibre 3235. Both movements incorporate the Chronergy escapement, developed and patented by Rolex, and offer a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
OYSTER PERPETUAL DATEJUST New white Rolesor versions (combining Oystersteel and 18 ct white gold) of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 are presented.
On the first watch, a diamond-set bezel surrounds an aubergine, sunray-finish dial with 18 ct white gold Roman numerals – the VI set with 11 diamonds.
The three other versions, all with a fluted bezel, are fitted respectively with a mint green, sunray-finish dial, a white lacquer dial, and a dark grey, sunray-finish dial.
These watches are fitted with calibre 2236, which includes the Syloxi hairspring, developed and patented by Rolex. They have a power reserve of approximately 55 hours.
OYSTER PERPETUAL The Oyster Perpetual 41 – a new model joining the Oyster Perpetual range – is launched with a silver, sunray-finish dial or a bright black, sunray-finish dial.
On the first new version, the hour markers and hands are in 18 ct yellow gold, bringing a retro touch to an Oystersteel watch. On the second, they are in 18 ct white gold. The Oyster Perpetual 36 takes on a dynamic look, proposing lacquer dials in five original colours: candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral red and green. These watches are fitted with an Oyster bracelet and an Oysterclasp with the Easylink comfort extension system – a first for the Oyster Perpetual range. All are equipped with calibre 3230. Incorporating the Chronergy escapement, developed and patented by Rolex, the power reserve of this new movement extends to approximately 70 hours.
OYSTER PERPETUAL SKY-DWELLER
The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is introduced with an Oysterflex bracelet. It is the first watch in the Classic category to receive this innovative, Rolex-patented bracelet. This 18 ct yellow gold version with a bright black, sunray-finish dial offers the high-performance elastomer bracelet with an Oysterclasp and the Rolex Glidelock extension system, which allows fine adjustment of the bracelet for optimal comfort on the wrist. The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is equipped with calibre 9001, one of the most complex movements to be developed and manufactured by Rolex. This calibre includes a blue Parachrom hairspring, manufactured by the brand in an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, and offers a power reserve of approximately 72 hours. The models of 2020 bring a sense of vitality, movement, relentlessness to the challenges of the times we are living in. Rolex is a brand that has always sent messages of uncompromising desire for development and improvement, no matter the circumstances and the obstacles. And in this very moment we all need such an example.
