What’s better than a Rolex watch? Two of them of course! Nothing says, “I love you” like a pair of matching luxury watches on each other’s wrists. In fact, it’s a great gift for both halves to commemorate an engagement, wedding, or anniversary. So with that, here’s our roundup of some of the best his and hers Rolex match-ups.
Watch Pairings: Rolex Yacht-Master
For a sporty chic vibe, the Rolex Yacht-Master is a top choice. For him, there’s the Yacht-Master ref. 16623 and for her, there’s the comparable Yacht-Master ref. 168628. Both luxurious yet still casual, this pair of Yacht-Master watches proudly shows off a nautical flair.
The men’s Yacht-Master ref. 16623 is a two-tone Rolesor model that sports a 40mm stainless steel with an 18k yellow gold bezel. Carrying on the two-tone style are the 18k yellow gold center links on the predominately steel Oyster bracelet. Housed within the case is a deep blue dial along with the characteristic round luminescent hour-markers and date window at 3 o’clock.
Though the ladies’ Yacht-Master ref. 168628 also features a blue dial, this time it sits within a solid 18k yellow gold Rolex model. The mid-size case measures 35mm and similar to the men’s model, also includes a yellow gold rotatable bezel with oversized raised numerals. Finishing off the Yacht-Master ref. 168628 is a full yellow gold Oyster bracelet.
Watch Pairings: Rolex President
For the ultimate power couple nothing beats Rolex’s definitive status watch, the President. For him we’d recommend the white gold Day-Date II ref. 218239 while for her, we suggest the white gold Datejust ref. 179179 with a President bracelet.
The men’s Rolex President ref. 218239 is from the now discontinued Day-Date II collection with a large 41mm case. This particular model has a blue wave-pattern dial that sets a lush background to the iconic pair of day and date windows along with the white gold Arabic numerals. Paired with the white gold case and fluted bezel is the signature President bracelet also in 18k white gold.
The ladies’ Rolex ref. 179179 is not a Day-Date, but rather a Datejust model as illustrated by the date window at 3 o’clock magnified by a Cyclops lens. But what makes it a ladies’ President is the iconic solid gold semi-circular three-link bracelet dubbed the President bracelet by Rolex. For even more lavishness, this particular Lady-Datejust Presidential ref. 179179 is adorned with a full diamond bezel in addition to diamonds on the mother-of-pearl dial.
Watch Pairings: Rolex Daytona
For a matching duo of luxury chronographs, the Rolex Daytona is the undisputable champ. A solid choice for him would be the yellow gold Daytona ref. 116528 and for her, it has to be the Everose gold Daytona ref. 116505.
With its tri-color dial, this specific model of the Daytona ref. 116528 is a modern tribute to the most famous Rolex Daytona wearer of them all, Paul Newman. The black dial with champagne registers and red accents looks especially great encased within the solid yellow gold case. Of course, attached to the 40mm Oyster case is the fixed tachymeter engraved bezel distinct to the Daytona, as are the pair of chrono screw-down pushers flanking the winding crown.
Despite the fact that the Everose Daytona ref. 116505 is classified as a man’s watch, women have been rocking this particular Daytona model for years now—especially in celebrity circles. Stylish women appreciate the juxtaposition of the Daytona’s inherently masculine design crafted in refined rose gold. Plus, the black dial of this particular Daytona ref. 116505 chronograph is a classic choice that will never go out of style.
Watch Pairings: Rolex Datejust
The Rolex Datejust has been the quintessential everyday luxury watch for elegant couples for well over half a century. And the two-tone versions offer an appealing combination of elegance and sportiness. A fantastic pair of his and her two-tone Datejust models includes the 41mm Datejust II ref. 126333 for him and the Datejust ref. 116233 for her.
At 41mm big, the Datejust II ref. 126333 is a contemporary take on the classic two-tone Datejust. The fluted yellow gold bezel is a classic Rolex detail while the center yellow gold links add more dressiness to the rugged steel Oyster bracelet. Furthermore, the white dial with baton hour-markers is beautifully understated.
Aesthetically very similar, yet a touch more refined for her, is the two-tone Datejust ref. 116233. Again, just like the Daytona, the 36mm Datejust was initially crafted with the gents in mind, but the ladies wear it just as well. This edition is particular graceful with its gold fluted bezel, two-tone Oyster bracelet, and ivory dial with a subtle pyramid-motif dial.
Watch Pairings: Rolex Oyster Perpetual
Finally, the Oyster Perpetual 39 ref. 114300 is an ideal model for couples looking for a youthful and modern Rolex watch that won’t break the bank. It is today’s entry-level Rolex watch.
The best part is, given its alluring straightforward design, versatile stainless steel, practical 39mm size, and range of dial colors, the Oyster Perpetual ref. 114300 is a Rolex that suits both him and her.
From red grape to blue to olive green to rhodium, each picks his and her favorite color then both can wear the exact same Rolex—style simpatico at its finest.
Stylistically, whether you consider yourselves as a sporty, casual, or dressy couple, there’s the right Rolex pairing out there for you. Also, it doesn’t hurt that buying your significant other a matching Rolex is the perfect excuse to get one for yourself too!
