At Baselworld 2019, Rolex revealed seven new watches. While only one of these watches is an entirely new model, Rolex debuted newly refined editions of six of their classic timepieces. Ready to see the latest Rolex offerings? Here’s our round-up of the seven new watches Rolex revealed at Baselworld 2019.
Rolex’s New Sailing Watch: Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42
The new model Rolex debuted at Baselworld 2019 is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42, which is an addition to their sailing watch range. This watch, which is currently available only in 18 ct white gold, sets a new size standard for Rolex sailing watches. With a sizable 42mm diameter, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 is the largest sailing watch Rolex has ever released.
This new model features Rolex’s new calibre 3235, a Chromalight display, a power reserve of 70 hours, an Oysterflex bracelet, and a 60 minute graduated Cerachrom bezel.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller Yellow Rolesor
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller has been updated with Rolex’s new calibre 3235 and is now available in yellow Rolesor. The Rolesor version of the updated Sea-Dweller combines Oystersteel and 18k gold. Gold accents adorn this version’s bracelet, dial, and bezel.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II
The latest version of the Rolex Perpetual GMT-Master II has also been updated with a new Rolex calibre, their calibre 3285. Additionally, it’s now available in an Oystersteel version that features a two-color Cerachrom bezel in black and blue.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona
At Baselworld 2019, Rolex revealed a luxe, diamond set version of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. Like the highly praised Everose version released in 2018 (commonly referred to as the “rainbow Daytona”), this watch elevates this classic model with precious materials.
This new version of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona features a paved black lacquer dial adorned with white diamonds and yellow gold, Arabic numerals, and 36 trapeze cut diamonds along with the bezel.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36
The Day-Date has been a Rolex staple since it was first introduced in 1956. At this year’s Baselworld, Rolex debuted the latest generation of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36. This new generation features expanded options for the model, which is now available in 18 ct yellow, white, and Everose gold, along with a number of unique new dial options.
Perhaps the most talked about of these new dial options are the two gradient dials. The 18 ct yellow Gold Day-Date 36 is available with a green ombre dial, while the 18 ct Everose model is available with a brown ombre dial.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36
Finally, Rolex released two new versions of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36, both in white Rolesor, which combines Oystersteel and 18 ct white gold. The first of these versions feature a black sunray-finish dial and a fluted bezel, while the second features a white mother-of-pearl dial. The dial on this second version is set with 10 white diamond hour markers, surrounded in 18 ct white gold settings, and a bezel set with 52 white, brilliant cut diamonds.
