Accentuate your look with these sparkling Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust and Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 watches.
Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust
There is just no escaping the mesmerising allure of the new Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust. This stunning timepiece sits amongst the most luxurious Rolex offerings this year, set with 1,089 diamonds on the 18 ct yellow gold middle case, bezel, dial and President bracelet in a resplendent display of sparkle.
The Lady-Datejust first made its appearance in 1957, created as a smaller alternative to the iconic Datejust that was launched in 1945. Offered in a 28 mm size, the watch oozes presence and gravitas. Its display of gemstones is powerful and alluring; the delightful shimmer of brilliant-cut diamonds pairs harmoniously with the 18 ct yellow gold, catching the light with every movement of the wrist. Amid the enchanting display, legibility and performance are guaranteed by way of hour markers with a black PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) coating that contrasts beautifully against the diamonds. The watch’s calibre 2236, a Rolex-made self-winding movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology, features the brand’s patented Syloxi hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers, and offers excellent precision, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, as well as approximately 55 hours of power reserve.
The Best of Nature
The Lady-Datejust range is loved for its versatility, offering a selection of styles from subtly elegant models to fully bejewelled creations. This version in 18 ct yellow gold, featuring diamonds on the bezel and hour markers and a white mother-of-pearl dial, is an excellent choice for those who desire a watch that exudes prestige and poetry in equal measure.
Complementing the glow of the 18 ct yellow gold and the sparkling symphony of the diamonds, the mother-of-pearl dial’s iridescence adds depth and texture to the timepiece. Depending on how it catches the light, the dial can evoke billowing clouds or the surface of a vast ocean. Mother-of-pearl is by nature full of mystery and surprises. Depending on its origin, it can be pink, white, black or yellow. It differs in colour, intensity and structure according to the part of the shell from which it is extracted. As such, all mother-of-pearl dials are unique pieces. Like this year’s diamond-paved Lady-Datejust, this model is also driven by the self-winding calibre 2236 for unparalleled timekeeping precision. A hallmark of horological refinement and chronometric performance, both Lady-Datejust watches are certified Superlative Chronometers that also come with an international five-year guarantee.
Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36
The most prestigious and exclusive watch in the Oyster Perpetual collection, the Day-Date has accompanied some of the world’s best-known visionaries. This elegant and opulent Day-Date 36 features a 36 mm case size that is suitable for smaller wrists, and radiates grace and distinction that will elevate any style. Its dial features hour markers in 18 ct gold, set with 32 diamonds, and a Roman VI and IX in 18 ct gold, set with 24 diamonds that contrasts beautifully against the striped patterns on the eisenkiesel dial.
The signature features of the Day-Date, which include the day of the week spelt out in full in an arc-shaped window at 12 o’clock on the dial and the date in a separate window at 3 o’clock, as well as the President bracelet that was created especially for the watch’s launch in 1956, continue to grace the Day-Date 36. Housed in an Oyster case crafted from a solid block of 18 ct Everose gold, the watch is enlivened by its bezel and hour markers, which are decorated with sparkling diamonds. The warm lustre of the gold, coupled with the precious gemstones, set the perfect stage for the gorgeously textured eisenkiesel dial. The enchanting aesthetics of the Day-Date 36 are matched by mechanical brilliance in its self-winding calibre 3255. A cutting-edge movement, calibre 3255 boasts a number of patented elements, including the Chronergy escapement and the blue Parachrom hairspring, and offers outstanding performance in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability.
Those seeking stupendous glamour will be drawn to this dazzling, gem-set Day-Date 36. Charming and playful all at once, this is an exhilarating timepiece that demands the limelight.
A paragon of gem-setting artistry, the watch’s 18 ct white gold case and President bracelet are expertly set with diamonds. It is a bold display of creativity, craftsmanship and eye for detail from Rolex. From the diamond-set centre bracelet links to the fully diamond-paved dial set with sapphire hour markers, every element of the watch works in breathtaking harmony. The 10 baguette-cut, rainbow-coloured sapphires are sourced, sorted and set with exacting precision by the brand’s gemmologists and gem-setters, so as to ensure the watch’s sparkle. Most importantly, this Day-Date 36 model impresses from within. Also powered by the self-winding calibre 3255, the watch registers precision of -/+ 2 seconds per day, offers excellent resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, and provides approximately 70 hours of power reserve.
