Pamper yourself this holiday season with an exquisite selection of Rolex timepieces.
Nothing crowns the achievements of another year with greater meaning than a Rolex watch. Whether as a celebratory symbol of how far you’ve come, or a poignant reminder of the ceaseless passage of time, a new Rolex timepiece will cap your festivities with both class and distinction.
Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller
A horological marvel designed for frequent travellers, the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller combines cutting-edge mechanical intelligence with ease of use.
Driving the watch is the calibre 9001, a revolutionary self-winding movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology, developed and manufactured entirely by Rolex. Introduced in 2012, it is one of the most complex calibres ever created by the Swiss manufacture. Boasting 14 patents, the calibre 9001 is equipped with numerous innovative features that make it exceptionally precise and reliable. They include the patented annual calendar system named ‘Saros’, which automatically differentiates between 30-day and 31-day months, as well as an exclusive dual time zone display. Further accentuating the watch’s functionality is Rolex’s proprietary Ring Command system. Comprising some 50 components, this complex mechanism of interaction between the bezel, winding crown and movement allows the user to effortlessly and securely select and set the watch’s individual functions.
A regal and resplendent expression of the Sky-Dweller, this version Ref. M326935-0007 in 18 ct Everose gold complements the watch’s technical sophistication with nobility. The unmistakable sheen of 18 ct Everose gold – a proprietary Rolex gold alloy cast in the brand’s in-house foundry – on the case and Oyster bracelet is beautifully paired with a dark rhodium dial, a combination that emanates contemporary chic and forthright luxury.
Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41
A veritable horological icon, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust is Rolex’s classic watch of reference and hailed an essential timepiece in any watch lover’s collection. Steeped in horological history as the world’s first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial, the Datejust 41 is, at heart, a robust timepiece boasting exceptional performance. Powered by the self-winding calibre 3235 with patented high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers and Parachrom hairspring for optimum precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, the watch also boasts famous Rolex technical hallmarks such as the magnifying Cyclops lens at three o’clock with instantaneous date display, and Oyster case with guaranteed waterproofness to 100 metres.
At the same time, this Datejust 41 model exudes timeless style and refinement. Presented in a yellow Rolesor version – a combination of yellow gold and Oystersteel – the watch is an instantly recognisable classic. Distinguished by its elegant profile that is perfect from the boardroom to the ballroom, the watch showcases signature Rolex features like the fluted gold bezel that frames a champagne-coloured dial as well as the Jubilee bracelet. This robust five-piece link bracelet was designed specially for the launch of the Datejust back in 1945.
If you desire a wrist statement that showcases the best of traditional watchmaking while still expressing a contemporary spirit, the Cellini Moonphase is an ideal choice. Watch lovers with a keen sartorial sense will appreciate the watch’s sober and refined lines, classic round profile, and appropriately sized 39 mm 18 ct Everose gold case. Those with an eye for detail will also enjoy the watch’s unique decorative features, such as the pristine lacquered dial, double bezel (one domed and the other fluted), flared screw-down crown, and a domed screw-down case back, as featured in bygone eras.
Powered by the calibre 3195 self-winding movement, the Cellini Moonphase is the only Cellini model to feature an astronomical complication. The captivating display at six o’clock is accurate to 122 years, mapping the phase of the moon on a blue enamel disc with a triangular indicator at its 12 o’clock position. The display shows two ‘moons’ rotating in tandem with the lunar cycle. A round meteorite inlay depicts the full moon, and a silver ring represents the new moon. At the same time, the owner can also ascertain the date around the circumference of the dial, via a centre hand with a crescent moon at its tip. A luxurious classic watch of the highest order, the Cellini Moonphase truly captivates with its celestial charms.
Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40
For the ultimate Rolex accoutrement this festive season, look no further than the iconic Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40. Crafted only in precious metals, it is the most prestigious watch in the Oyster Perpetual collection, and this Day-Date 40 demonstrates just why.
It is impossible not to be captivated by the watch’s polished 18 ct yellow gold case with fluted bezel, which pair perfectly with the famous President bracelet with three semi-circular links providing complete reliability and comfort. The lavish glow of precious gold, echoed on the hands and hour markers, provides the backdrop to an immaculate white dial with the collection’s unique calendar display that shows the day of the week spelt out in full, in addition to the date window at three o’clock.
A watch synonymous with stateliness and class, the Day-Date 40 exudes gravitas, cemented by its impressive movement, the new-generation calibre 3255. The self-winding mechanical movement delivers unrivalled performance and precision with patented innovations such as the Chronergy escapement, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability, and an optimised version of the blue Parachrom hairspring that is up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. Radiating with resplendence and substance, the Day-Date 40 is a statement of distinction and achievement – and the perfect reward for a fulfilling year.
