Radiant Picks To Last A Lifetime

From the distinguished splendour of an Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 in 18 ct yellow gold, to the stunning sophistication of a Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 in yellow Rolesor, discover the perfect combination of style and function with a Rolex timepiece.

Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36

The Day-Date is described as the ultimate watch of prestige for good reason. Introduced in 1956, the Day-Date quickly established itself as a modern horological icon and a symbol of Rolex’s technical prowess. Crafted only in 18 ct gold or platinum, the watch entered the history books as the first waterproof and self-winding chronometer wristwatch to offer a modern calendar with an instantaneous day display, spelt out in full in a window on the dial, in addition to the date.

The indelible presence of the Day-Date 36 is accentuated by the glamour, grace and femininity of this captivating model. The timepiece commands attention with its stunning green ombré dial that’s set with diamonds, including baguette-cut stones at the six and nine o’clock hour markers. The combination of sparkle, colour and precious metal hewn from Rolex’s own gold foundry is alluring and lavish, and a further testament to the Day-Date’s horological stature. The timepiece’s exceptional beauty is complemented by its outstanding technical performance.

Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31

The archetype of the classic watch, thanks to functions and aesthetics that never go out of fashion, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 exudes class and elicits aspiration. First launched in 1945, the watch is loved for its timeless style and reliability, and is instantly recognisable by its date display on the dial at the 3 o’clock position, complete with a Cyclops lens for easy reading. The Datejust 31 collection features exquisite options in 31mm cases that house the calibre 2236, a self-winding movement developed in-house by Rolex, which features cutting-edge innovations to improve timekeeping accuracy and reliability, including the patented Syloxi hairspring made of silicon, and a paramagnetic nickel-phosphorus escape wheel. The Datejust 31’s high-performance virtues serve to elevate the watch’s beauty and elegance. This model in yellow Rolesor – a combination of 18 ct yellow gold and Oystersteel – is complemented by a gorgeous olive green dial set with hour markers in 18 ct gold, complete with the ‘IV’ hour marker festooned with diamonds for extra sparkle.

Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona

The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the perfect timepiece for watch lovers with a passion for driving and speed. With perfect symmetry and balance from any angle, the Cosmograph Daytona – equipped with calibre 4130 – is the quintessential motorsports-inspired wrist statement. This model in 18 ct yellow gold embodies the spirit of the Cosmograph Daytona collection while paying homage to its past. The gleaming black Cerachrom bezel also offers a highly legible tachymetric scale that is moulded into the ceramic and coloured by the deposition of a thin layer of platinum or gold via a PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process. At the same time, the watch emanates contemporary luxury with its combination of 18 ct gold case paired with an Oysterflex bracelet, a Rolex-patented innovation that marries the robustness of a metal bracelet with the sporty appeal and comfort of a high-performance elastomer strap.

Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller

The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller in yellow Rolesor imbues luxury and refinement into the professional underwater exploration tool. An ultra-resilient timepiece designed to withstand the rigours of deep-sea diving, the Sea-Dweller boasts numerous ground-breaking innovations that include waterproofness to a depth of 1,220m, and a patented helium escape valve that helps release built-up pressure in the watch case during the decompression phase of a dive. Driven by Rolex’s new-generation calibre 3235, and incorporating the Chronergy escapement for optimum energy efficiency, the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller is built for extreme performance. A dive watch unlike any other, the Sea-Dweller is unparalleled in its regal armour – the irresistible yellow Rolesor case and bracelet beautifully paired with a black Cerachrom bezel insert and dial.

Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II

Always one for adventure on the high seas, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II lays claim to a proud place in the prestigious line of Rolex Professional watches. Carrying the rich heritage that has bound Rolex and the world of sailing since the 1950s, it is a favourite amongst competitive sailors and yachting enthusiasts. The Yacht-Master II gives seafaring athletes an edge at the start of their regattas, thanks to its unique programmable countdown with mechanical memory, on-the-fly synchronisation, and patented Ring Command bezel. The Yacht-Master II’s winsome amalgamation of high-tech engineering, intelligent mechanics and sporty style promises appeal to watch connoisseurs and beginners alike. Housed in an Everose Rolesor (a combination of 18ct Everose gold and Oystersteel) case and bracelet, the watch sports a sleek blue scratch-proof Cerachrom bezel insert that frames a white lacquer dial anchored by the 10-minute countdown timer with large red-tipped hand, along with hour markers and hour and minute hands in 18 ct Everose gold with Chromalight appliques for lasting luminescence.
