ROLEX IS INTRODUCING THE NEW VERSION OF ITS OYSTER PERPETUAL COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA, FITTED ON THE INNOVATIVE OYSTERFLEX BRACELET IN ELASTOMER REINFORCED WITH A METAL BLADE, AND ARE EQUIPPED WITH A MONOBLOC CERACHROM BEZEL, PATENTED BY ROLEX, IN BLACK CERAMIC
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.
