Characterized by its three sub-dials, screw-down chronograph pushers, and black Cerachrom bezel, the reference 116500LN has been perpetually sold out at retailers with multi-year waitlists present at all locations. Fitted with a black dial that complements its state-of-the-art ceramic bezel, this latest version of the Daytona makes the perfect watch for everywhere from the boardroom to the racetrack.
Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 126710BLNR
The stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 126710BLNR with black and blue “Batman” bezel insert was the hottest new release of 2019 and is still sold-out at retailers worldwide. Powered by the new-generation Cal. 3285 movement and fitted with Rolex’s iconic Jubilee bracelet, the new reference 126710BLNR brings the fan-favorite black/blue color profile to the latest generation of the GMT-Master II. Capable of simultaneously displaying 3 time zones and water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters, the “Batman” GMT is the ultimate luxury travel watch and an absolutely must-have for any serious Rolex collector.
Rolex Explorer ref. 214270
The Explorer is Rolex’s original sports watch collection, and the ref. 214270 represents the latest edition of this industry classic. Crafted entirely from Rolex’s patented Oystersteel, this latest version of the Explorer benefits from an increased case size of 39mm and a completely redesigned bracelet and clasp. Capable of displaying nothing more than the time of day, the Rolex Explorer embodies rugged minimalism, and its timeless versatile styling pairs equally well with both formal and casual attire, making it a watch that can transition effortlessly between activities without looking out of place or skipping a beat.
Rolex Yacht-Master ref. 168623
The Yacht-Master is Rolex’s original luxury-oriented sports watch line, perfectly blending premium materials and a contemporary sporty aesthetic. Unlike most Rolex sports watches, the Yacht-Master is offered with a range of different case sizes, making it the perfect option for those who like the look of Rolex sports watches, but who want something more compact and manageable on the wrist. The reference 168623 is the 35mm version of the Rolex Yacht-Master constructed from stainless steel and solid 18k yellow gold. Equal parts luxurious and sporty, the Yacht-Master ref. 168623 can be worn with everything from a little black dress to workout clothes and features 100 meters of water resistance so that you never need to take it off.
Rolex Datejust ref. 179178
Constructed entirely out of 18k yellow gold and known as the ‘Lady President’ among collectors, the reference 179178 is Rolex’s most luxurious expression of the classic Lady Datejust. Featuring a flattering yet versatile 26mm case diameter and Rolex’s iconic President bracelet, the Datejust ref. 179178 is unapologetically luxurious and an instantly recognizable status symbol, embodying superlative craftsmanship and timeless beauty. Despite its premium construction and elegant profile, the Lady President still offers users 100 meters of water resistance, making it perfectly suited to be a watch that can be worn all day, every day.
Rolex Air-King ref. 114234
Although the Rolex Air-King was originally intended to be a man’s watch, its highly versatile 34mm case size has made it a popular choice for both men and women alike. Although the Air-King is most frequently found exclusively crafted from stainless steel, this reference 114234 is fitted with an 18k white gold fluted bezel and a diamond-set dial, making it a luxurious take on this classic Rolex design. Fitted with a solid-link Oyster bracelet with secure fold-over clasp, this Rolex Air-King ref. 114234 is an ideal everyday watch that sacrifices nothing in regards to premium materials or refined styling.
His & Her Rolex Watches
Rolex Datejust (ref. 126233 & ref. 178273)
For a classic pair of his and her watches, the Rolex Datejust is about as timeless and classic as you can get. Available with an impossibly wide selection of different case sizes, materials, dials, bezels, and bracelets, there is a virtually endless option of possible his and her pairings; however, for many people, the classic two-tone stainless steel and yellow gold is about as quintessentially Rolex as you can get.
The reference 126233 is the latest version of the traditional 36mm two-tone Datejust, combining Rolex’s new-generation Cal. 3235 movement with a timeless aesthetic that has remained largely unchanged for the better part of a century. Paired with it is the reference 178273, which is the mid-size version of Rolex’s classic two-tone Datejust. Offering a case size of 31mm, the ref. 178273 is the perfect option for those who want something slightly larger than the standard Lady Datejust, but who still want something smaller than the full-size 36mm men’s model. Both watches offer users 100 meters of water resistance and chronometer-certified movements, making them ideal luxury watches for everyday wear and use.
Rolex Yacht-Master (ref. 116655 & ref. 268655)
For the ultimate pair of his and her luxury sports watches, the Rolex Yacht-Master collection is the perfect option. As the only Rolex sports watch collection that is offered in multiple sizes, the Yacht-Master is ideally suited for his and her watch pairings, and the vast range of materials available gives couples plenty of options to suit their style and budget.
The most premium versions of the Yacht-Master that are currently available are the Everose models on Oysterflex bracelets. Constructed entirely from Rolex’s proprietary 18k rose gold material, and fitted with matte black ceramic bezels and Oysterflex bracelets, these watches are incredibly luxurious, yet unmistakable sporty. The reference 116655 is the standard full-size men’s model with a case diameter of 40mm, while the reference 268655 is the mid-size version, which has a slightly reduced case diameter of 37mm. Despite their solid gold construction, both models feature Oysterflex rubber straps and 100 meters of water resistance, making them highly-capable luxury sports watches that sit at the crossroads of functionality and exclusivity.
