Rolex New Watches 2023: Watches and Wonders

Posted on 31 March 2023

DEFYING EXCELLENCE

With its latest creations, Rolex demonstrates its perpetual pursuit of excellence. An ever-present challenge manifested in the brand’s ambition to perfect every component, question every method, and master every aspect of watchmaking expertise. The watches unveiled illustrate a desire to reinvent while preserving a sense of continuity, to innovate while being mindful of tradition, and to leverage technology in daring to create. It is through such efforts – bolstered by the ‘superlative’ vision that permeates the entire creation process down to the finest detail – that exemplary timepieces are formed, and prevail. Watches that, with time, become icons.

OYSTER PERPETUAL COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA: An Icon Defying Time

The emblematic style and technical performance of the Cosmograph Daytona have cemented its iconic status well beyond the motor racing circuits. To mark the 60th anniversary of the watch, Rolex ensures the legend lives on by revisiting the entire range – a high-precision rework involving the case and face as well as the movement.

The restyled Cosmograph Daytona presents even greater visual harmony and a more modern demeanour. The dial graphics have new balance. Graceful lines of light are elegantly reflected from the lugs and the sides of its redesigned middle case. On versions with a Cerachrom bezel, the bezel is edged with the same metal as the middle case. The new 4131 movement incorporates the Chronergy escapement, the Paraflex shock absorbers and a new oscillating weight with optimised ball bearing. This calibre features a new aesthetic for the brand: the Rolex Côtes de Genève decoration and a cut-out oscillating weight. On the version in 950 platinum, the oscillating weight is made from 18 ct yellow gold and is visible to the wearer through the transparent case back – a first for the Oyster Perpetual collection.

 Through these numerous adjustments and evolutions, the Cosmograph Daytona is a reminder that the pursuit of excellence is a race with no finish line.

PERPETUAL 1908: The New Face of Excellence

Elegant, classic and decidedly contemporary, the 1908 immortalises Rolex’s age-long daring spirit. Its conception is the result of the brand’s comprehensive in-house expertise and unwavering commitment to excellence.

Inspired by one of the first Rolex watches with a Perpetual rotor, this completely new time- piece opens the Perpetual collection, which reinterprets the traditional wristwatch through the Rolex avant-garde lens. The name ‘1908’ is a reference to the date the ‘Rolex’ trademark was officially registered in Switzerland.

The shape of the hands, the faceted hour markers, and the bezel – domed and with fine fluting – are emblematic of Rolex’s watch- making heritage. They produce a delicate interplay between scintillation and reflection, where light meets shadow, infusing this new watch with a rare beauty and refinement.

The 1908 is available in 18 ct yellow or white gold, with an intense white or intense black dial, and is distinctive for its slim case. The

transparent case back opens up new aesthetic perspectives, revealing a uniquely decorated movement.

Superlative Chronometer certified, the 1908 is a distillation of Rolex know-how in terms of technology and design. Its calibre 7140, with small seconds, marries performance and elegance. In addition to the innovations that led to the filing of five patent applications, this movement, designed and manufactured specifically for the watch, features the Rolex Côtes de Genève decoration and a cut-out oscillating weight in 18 ct yellow gold.

This timepiece is mounted on an alligator leather strap with a green lining, and equipped with the new Dualclasp.

A classic watch that raises the art of watchmaking to new heights, the 1908 carves out a place for itself as a Rolex imbued with traditional spirit yet exuding modernity, and, in so doing, opens a new path.

OYSTER PERPETUAL YACHT-MASTER 42: Mastering Lightness

Light and robust, the new Yacht-Master 42, in RLX titanium, is the ally of those seeking freedom of movement. Especially suited to the demands and pressures of competitive sailing, it puts watchmaking excellence at the service of sporting performance.

RLX titanium, a particularly lightweight alloy with excellent corrosion-resistance proper- ties and high mechanical strength, is used to make the Oyster case and bracelet. The combination of polished, high-sheen and technical satin finishes illustrates the brand’s excellence in finishing techniques. Together, they produce a subtle play of textures and light between the gleam of the polished crown guard, the high- sheen lustre on the top edges of the lugs, and the matt grain of the technical satin finish.

The new Yacht-Master 42 is the second watch in RLX titanium released by Rolex after the Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge, confirming that lightness is a quality to be taken seriously.
