One of the most coveted timepiece brands, Rolex, nothing quite heralds the arrival of a man than one whom has a Rolex on his wrist. Today, Rolex is known among aficionados as the superior choice – it is the largest Swiss luxury-watch maker, and is almost completely vertically integrated. All the way down from smelting its own gold alloys and producing its own hairsprings. This control over production allows the brand to maintain extraordinarily high-quality control, which Rolex backs with a five-year warranty period on all of their new timepieces.
Limited to only a few product lines, Rolex makes incremental improvements with each new model to ensure that each piece is the culmination of the advances from their predecessors. Below, we go over three fine additions that you should own in your Rolex collection.
Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea
The Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea is one of the world’s most coveted timepieces. The Deepsea was recently updated in 2018. The dominating 44mm timepiece now houses Rolex’s Latest energy-efficient Calibre 3235, and along with that it also has slimmer lugs, as well as a wider bracelet. It might not receive as much press as the much more wearable – and, probably the much more useful – 40mm, multi-time zone, Pepsi-bezel GMT-Master II, but the Deepsea successfully demonstrates just how far traditional watchmaking can be pushed, while remaining relatively wearable.
Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmography Daytona is outfitted with Cerachrom bezels, which were first developed and patented by Rolex back in 2005. The numbers and markers, in this case, of the tachymetric scale, are engraved on Rolex’s own ceramic material, and the bezels are heated to temperatures as high as 1,500 degrees Celsius, so as to ensure that it hardens and purifies the material. The bezels are bombarded with platinum or gold which depends upon which model the bezel is being used for, of which coats the numerals and graduations. The excess platinum is removed by diamond-polishing. The end result is a virtually scratch-proof masterpiece.
Rolex GMT-Master II
Those with a keen eye may at first glimpse at the image and think that Rolex is repeating its 2014 novelty. However, this is not the case. The new 2018 GMT-Master II, may have the same red and blue Cerachrom bezel, however, it is now in steel with a Jubilee bracelet. It also has a brand-new movement, the Calibre 3285, which utilizes Rolex’s Chronergy escapement. This allows for a fifteen percent gain in efficiency. It has 70 powers of power reserve and boasts 10 patents.
