Sporty, rugged and masculine, stainless steel is often the top choice for men when looking for Rolex watches. Its broad appeal is suited for both work and play and can easily transition from day to night. And this being Rolex, they don’t just use any stainless steel for their watches, only 904L stainless steel will do.
Stainless Steel Rolex Watches
Normally used in the high-tech and aerospace industries, Rolex became the first watch brand to use the highly corrosion-resistant alloy in 1985. Prized for its strength and exceptional sheen, a Rolex watch dress in 904L stainless steel – whether a Daytona, GMT-Master II, Datejust II or any other Rolex model – will be a longtime loyal and resilient partner.
Cosmograph Daytona 116520
Associated with fast cars and cool guys like Paul Newman, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is an undeniably masculine sports watch. Robust, yet elegant, the Daytona is considered by many as the ultimate chronograph watch. And the combining of stainless steel with a black dial highlights the intensity of the Daytona 116520.
The 40mm stainless steel Oyster case of the Daytona 116520 is topped with a fixed engraved tachymetric scale and when paired with its chronograph function, it can measure speeds of up to 400 miles per hour. The Rolex Caliber 4130 self-winding mechanical chronograph movement within provides the Daytona with optimal reliability and precision, while the stainless steel Oyster bracelet equipped with the Easylink system offers the wearer supreme comfort.
GMT-Master II 116710
Keeping track of several time zones while jet setting around the globe is done with serious style when wearing the Rolex GMT-Master II. The black dial within the stainless steel 40mm Oyster case is subtly accented with the green GMT hand and green “GMT-Master II” writing.
Complementing the toughness of stainless steel is the black bi-directional rotatable Cerachrom bezel – a scratchproof ceramic insert that is also fade resistant and harder than steel – making the GMT-Master II 116710 one sturdy watch. Fueling the ref. 116710 is the Rolex Caliber 3186, a C.O.S.C certified self-winding mechanical movement with a 24-hour hand to display a second time zone. Wrapping up the iconic look of the GMT-Master II is the matching stainless steel Oyster bracelet with the Oysterlock clasp and Easylink extension system.
Datejust II 116334
Confident and effortlessly elegant is the man who wears a stainless steel Datejust II on his wrist. The ultimate Rolex classic, the black dial of the Datejust II 116334 looks particularly sharp against the stainless steel 41mm Oyster case topped with a fluted 18k white gold bezel. Clear legibility of the dial is offered via the famous Cyclops lens magnifying the date window and the baton-style luminescent markers.
Matching the outer sturdiness of the stainless steel case is the Rolex Caliber 3136 inside – a self-winding mechanical movement equipped with Paraflex shock absorbers for increased resistance to shocks by up to 50%. And no matter the conditions it encounters, the Datejust II’s Oyster bracelet will always retain its beauty thanks to the scratch-resistance and luster of 904L stainless steel.
