New Rolex Explorer and Explorer II Watch
Rolex designed the Explorer series initially to accompany adventurers and travellers during their exploration missions on earth. One of its most significant accomplishments was the successful expedition to Mount Everest in 1953.
Nonetheless, collectors and enthusiast pretty expected to see new Explorer models this year as Rolex never miss to commemorate its cornerstone watches’ anniversaries. However, Rolex has always offered the Explorer in stainless steel since its inception in 1953.
The new Rolex Explorer Reference 124273 made its debut in the brand’s signature ‘Yellow Rolesor’ (combination of gold and steel). And the watch houses the new generation Calibre 3230 movement, offering a power reserve of over 70hours. However, Rolex presented the new Explorer a slimmed down 36mm case diameter.
The current Explorer lineup includes two new references – the stainless steel Ref. 124270 and the bi-metal Ref. 124273. Both models flaunt black dials and, interestingly, a 36mm case size.
Rolex discontinued the production of Reference 214270, featuring a 39mm case. This means that it is today the only Explorer version to feature a more prominent case.
On the other hand, the new Explorer II is crafted of the brand’s patented Oystersteel, a 42mm case, a white dial with black PVD hour markers and the defining orange seconds hand.
New Rolex Day-Date 36 and Lady Datejust Watch
Rolex proved its proficiency in gem-setting through two new women’s timepieces that exhibit high-end complexity in diamond-setting.
The new Rolex Day-Date 36 features a full diamond-set bezel and dial with enamel markers that complement the different coloured bracelets. However, the Calibre 3255 movement powers the timepiece and offers an impressive power reserve of 70hours. With about 100m water-resistant ability, you can do deep enough underwater while strapping the new watch.
On the contrary, the new Lady Datejust boosts extreme luxury and sparkle, with 291 diamonds on the dial, 596 diamonds on the bracelet, 158 diamonds on the case sides, lugs and 44 diamonds on the bezel.
The watch with 1,089 diamonds encases a Superlative Chronometer certified movement and has a petite 29mm case size.
New Rolex Datejust 36 Watch
Four new Datejust 36 models are part of Rolex’s 2021 novelties. What’s unique? Three new versions feature a new striking palm dial motif in gold on the Rolesor edition, in silver on the Everose Rolesor iteration and olive green on Oystersteel.
Reversely, the new yellow Rolesor Datejust flaunts a fluted dial motif. However, Rolex equipped all four models with the Calibre 3236 movement.
Introduced in 1945, the Rolex Datejust is one of the cornerstones and most iconic models in the luxury watch industry. The watchmaker released the watch as the first-ever self-winding chronometer timepiece with a date display at 3 o’clock side on the dial. However, its timeless design and enduring appeal make it an instantly recognisable Rolex model to date.
New Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Watch
Rolex has added meteorite and diamond-set dial options to some of the full-gold and bi-metal references for the revolutionary Daytona series. Well, diamond hour markers or meteorite dials are not new in the brand’s iconic chronograph. But they indeed presented a significant expansion of the model’s luxurious options.
However, Rolex equipped three Daytona versions with an in-house self-winding Calibre 4130 chronograph movement. It consists of chronograph functionality with a lesser number of elements that eventually increases the movement’s durability.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona made its debut in 1963 and is one of the most coveted Rolex watches worldwide. The Daytona is among the brand’s most diverse lineup of watches. However, Rolex originally designed the timepiece as a subtle time-tracking tool for the racetrack. But the Daytona evolved and was upgraded to become a recognisable and revered status symbol in the globe.
