Rolex is in­tro­duc­ing the new ver­sion of its Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Cos­mo­graph Day­tona, fit­ted on the in­no­va­tive Oys­ter­flex bracelet in elas­tomer.

OYS­TER PER­PET­UAL COS­MO­GRAPH DAY­TONA

Cre­ated by Rolex in 1963, the Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Cos­mo­graph Day­tona is a watch born to race. It has es­tab­lished an ex­tra­or­di­nary track record in the world of mo­tor sports thanks to its re­li­a­bil­ity and per­for­mance. Known sim­ply as the “Day­tona”, it has risen to the rank of an icon as one of the best­known chrono­graphs in the world.

An es­sen­tial part of the model’s iden­tity is the bezel en­graved with a tachy­met­ric scale for mea­sur­ing av­er­age speeds of up to 400 units of dis­tance - miles or kilo­me­tres - per hour. The monobloc Cer­achrom bezel in high-tech ce­ramic of­fers a num­ber of ad­van­tages: it is cor­ro­sion re­sis­tant, vir­tu­ally scratch­proof and the colour is un­af­fected by UV rays. This ex­tremely durable bezel also of­fers an ex­cep­tion­ally leg­i­ble tachy­met­ric scale, thanks to the de­po­si­tion of a thin layer of 18 ct gold or plat­inum in the nu­mer­als and grad­u­a­tions via a PVD (Phys­i­cal Vapour De­po­si­tion) process. The monobloc Cer­achrom bezel is made in a sin­gle piece and holds the crys­tal firmly in place on the mid­dle case, en­sur­ing wa­ter­proof­ness.

The new Cos­mo­graph Day­tona ver­sion are fit­ted with an Oys­ter­flex bracelet, de­vel­oped and patented by Rolex. This spe­cial bracelet com­bines in a sin­gu­lar way the ro­bust­ness and re­li­a­bil­ity of a me­tal bracelet with the flex­i­bil­ity, com­fort and aes­thet­ics of an elas­tomer strap. At its core lies a su­pere­las­tic me­tal blade over­moulded with a high-per­for­mance black elas­tomer, a ma­te­rial that is par­tic­u­larly re­sis­tant to environmental ef­fects and very durable. The Oys­ter­flex bracelet fits with an 18 ct yel­low,

white or Everose gold Oys­ter­lock safety clasp that pre­vents ac­ci­den­tal open­ing.

OYS­TER PER­PET­UAL DATE­JUST 41

Date­just is the archetype of the clas­sic watch thanks to func­tions and aes­thet­ics that never go out of fash­ion. Launched in 1945, it was the first self-wind­ing wa­ter­proof chronome­ter wrist­watch to dis­play the date in a win­dow at 3 o’clock on the dial, and con­sol­i­dated all the ma­jor in­no­va­tions that Rolex had con­trib­uted to the mod­ern wrist­watch un­til then.

The Date­just 41 equips with cal­i­bre 3235, a new-gen­er­a­tion move­ment en­tirely de­vel­oped and man­u­fac­tured by Rolex. This self-wind­ing me­chan­i­cal move­ment is at the fore­front of the art of watch­mak­ing. A per­fect demon­stra­tion of Rolex tech­nol­ogy, with 14 patents, it of­fers pre­ci­sion, power re­serve, re­sis­tance to shocks and mag­netic fields, con­ve­nience and re­li­a­bil­ity. It in­cor­po­rates the new Chronergy es­cape­ment patented by Rolex, which com­bines high en­ergy ef­fi­ciency with ex­cel­lent de­pend­abil­ity. Made of nickel-

phos­pho­rus, it is also in­sen­si­tive to mag­netic in­ter­fer­ence. The new Date­just 41 is avail­able on an Oys­ter or Ju­bilee bracelet. Both these solid-link, 904L steel bracelets ben­e­fit from the new con­cealed at­tach­ment sys­tem be­neath the bezel, which en­sures seam­less vis­ual con­ti­nu­ity be­tween the bracelet and case. They are equipped with a fold­ing Oys­ter­clasp and also fea­ture the orig­i­nal Rolex-patented Ea­sylink rapid ex­ten­sion sys­tem that al­lows the wearer to in­crease the bracelet length by ap­prox­i­mately 5 mm, for ad­di­tional com­fort in any cir­cum­stance.

OYS­TER PER­PET­UAL SKY-DWELLER

An el­e­gant watch for world trav­ellers, the Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Sky-Dweller is a com­pelling time­piece of revo­lu­tion­ary de­sign that blends to per­fec­tion tech­no­log­i­cal so­phis­ti­ca­tion and ease of use. Rolex is in­tro­duc­ing the Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Sky-Dweller for the first time in a choice of yel­low Role­sor or white Role­sor ver­sions - combining 904L steel and 18 ct yel­low or white gold. The di­als now fea­ture rec­tan­gu­lar index hour mark­ers and longer hands, as well as a Chro­ma­light dis­play with long-last­ing lu­mi­nes­cence, which en­hances leg­i­bil­ity.

The Sky-Dweller’s Oys­ter case, guar­an­teed wa­ter­proof to a depth of 100 me­tres (330 feet), is a paragon of ro­bust­ness. The char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally shaped mid­dle case is crafted from a solid block of 904L steel. Its fluted case back is her­met­i­cally screwed down with a spe­cial tool that al­lows only Rolex watch­mak­ers to ac­cess the move­ment. The wa­ter­proof Oys­ter case pro­vides op­ti­mum pro­tec­tion for the Sky-Dweller’s high-pre­ci­sion move­ment.

All Rolex watches are cov­ered by the Su­perla­tive Chronome­ter cer­ti­fi­ca­tion re­de­fined by Rolex in 2015. This ex­clu­sive des­ig­na­tion tes­ti­fies that the watch has suc­cess­fully un­der­gone a se­ries of tests con­ducted by Rolex in its lab­o­ra­to­ries ac­cord­ing to its cri­te­ria, which ex­ceed watch­mak­ing norms and stan­dards.
