BASELWORLD 2018 ROUND UP: THE NEW WATCH RELEASES FROM ROLEX

BASELWORLD 2018 ROUND UP: THE NEW WATCH RELEASES FROM ROLEX

This year, the GMT-Master II, with its second time zone, is at the forefront of Rolex’s 2018 selection. It includes a brand new Rolex movement, calibre 3285, and offers a distinctive new image. For the first time, this cosmopolitan watch with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic is available in Oystersteel, and on a Jubilee bracelet. The GMT-Master II range also features 18 ct Everose gold for the first time. Two new versions are introduced, both with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and two-colour Cerachrom insert in a black and newly developed brown ceramic.

The Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 and the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31, classic watches par excellence, are equipped with Rolex movements at the forefront of watchmaking technology. They are offered with a large selection of new dials and a redesigned case. Rolex’s expertise in gem-setting is displayed on an Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona in 18 ct Everose gold set with rainbow-hued sapphires as well as diamonds.

The new Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea is equipped with cutting-edge calibre 3235, a consummate demonstration of Rolex technology. It features a redesigned case with a broader Oyster bracelet as well as a correspondingly adapted Oysterlock folding safety clasp and Rolex Glidelock and Fliplock extension systems.

Like all Rolex timepieces, these new watches are covered by Rolex’s own Superlative Chronometer certification – symbolized by the green seal – guaranteeing that they satisfy performance criteria which exceed watchmaking norms and standards in terms of precision, power reserve, waterproofness and self-winding. The certification is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.

 

Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II (New Look & Calibre 3285)

For the very first time, the emblematic bidirectional rotatable bezel with a 24-hour graduated two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic is available on the GMT-Master II in Oystersteel, with a Jubilee bracelet, also in Oystersteel. Rolex’s exclusive 18 ct Everose gold comes to the GMT-Master II range with a version entirely in 18 ct Everose gold or an Everose Rolesor version, which combines Oystersteel and 18 ct Everose gold. Both are fitted with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a two-colour Cerachrom insert in a black and newly developed brown ceramic. The new GMT-Master II versions are equipped with the brand new calibre 3285. This movement is characterized by its exceptional performance, notably in terms of its precision, and guarantees a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.

 

Oyster Perpetual DateJust 36 (New Dials & Cutting-Edge Calibre 3235)

The new generation of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 is equipped with redesigned case sides and lugs. Available in Everose Rolesor and yellow Rolesor versions – combining Oystersteel and 18 ct Everose or yellow gold – the Datejust 36 offers a large selection of dials. The Everose Rolesor version features a white dial with 18 ct pink gold Roman numerals, and the yellow Rolesor version is presented with a champagne-colour dial or a white mother-of-pearl dial, both of which have diamond-set hour markers. These new Datejust 36 versions are equipped with calibre 3235. This movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology incorporates the patented Chronergy escapement and provides a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. It equips the Datejust 36 for the first time.

 

Oyster Perpetual DateJust 31 (New Dials & New-Generation Calibre 2236)

In 18 ct white, yellow or Everose gold, the new Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 is available with redesigned case sides and lugs, and features a diamond-set bezel. One version in 18 ct white gold marries a white mother-of-pearl dial and diamond-set hour markers. Another, in 18 ct yellow gold, features a malachite dial with a diamond-set Roman VI and IX in 18 ct yellow gold, whilst an 18 ct Everose gold version is introduced with a diamond-paved dial inlaid with pink mother-of-pearl butterflies. These new versions of the Datejust 31 are equipped for the first time with calibre 2236, a newgeneration movement fitted with a patented Syloxi hairspring in silicon and offering a power reserve of approximately 55 hours.

 

Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona (Rainbow Bezel & 18ct Everose Gold)

The new Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, in 18 ct Everose gold, is adorned with gemstones. In lieu of the emblematic tachymetric scale, the bezel features a gradation of 36 baguette-cut sapphires in rainbow hues. Eleven baguette-cut sapphire hour markers each match the colour of the corresponding gemstone on the bezel. The traditional chronograph counters are in pink Gold Crystals. The case is embellished with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds set into the lugs and crown guard. This new Cosmograph Daytona is equipped with calibre 4130, integrating a blue Parachrom hairspring produced by Rolex in an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, and offering a power reserve of approximately 72 hours.

 

Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea (Broader Bracelet & Cutting-Edge Calibre 3235

The new Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea in Oystersteel with a D-blue dial has a 44 mm case featuring redesigned lugs and sides. Its broader Oyster bracelet is equipped with a resized Oysterlock folding safety clasp. The Rolex Glidelock extension system and the Fliplock extension link have also been adapted accordingly. The Rolex Deepsea is equipped with calibre 3235. This movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology incorporates the patented Chronergy escapement and provides a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. It equips the Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea for the first time.
