This year for Rolex is all about its Oyster Perpetual collection. From the Oyster Perpetual Submariner and Submariner Date to the Oyster Perpetual DateJust 31, Oyster Perpetual 41 and Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller .
Here are details on each of the new watches:
Oyster Perpetual Submariner and Submariner Date
This new generation Oyster Perpetual Submariner and Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date is now presented in a slightly larger 41mm case size instead of a earlier 40mm. The timepiece now features a redesigned lugs and bracelet that makes the larger size still feel small on the wrist. True to the original, the new Submariner is crafted in Oystersteel with 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 collection is powered by the Calibre 3230 that has been launched this year. The Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date, on the other hand, 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
Making the ladies swoon this year is the Oyster Perpetual DateJust in a new 31mm white Rolesor version which is basically a combination of Oystersteel and 18 ct white gold. Housing a fantastic-looking, sunray-finish aubergine dial is a diamond-studded bezel. The dial features 8 ct white gold Roman numerals – the VI set with 11 diamonds. The collection is available in three other versions all with a fluted bezel and are fitted respectively with a mint green, sunray-finish dial, a white lacquer dial, and a dark grey, sunray-finish dial. The watch is powered by the Calibre 2236 which includes the Syloxi hairspring, developed and patented by Rolex. They have a power reserve of approximately 55 hours.
Making a splash with its classic essence of the timeless Oyster is the all new Oyster Perpetual in a new case size – 41mm. Earlier available in a 39mm case size (which will not be available), the new OP features a redesigned case with concealed lugs that gives the watch a rather nice fit on the wrist. It is launched in a silver, sunray-finish dial or a bright black, sunray-finish dial with the hour markers and hands in 18 ct yellow gold and 18 ct white gold, respectively. Each bring out a retro twist to the Oystersteel watch.
