9 | Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ref 116520

The Rolex Daytona ref 116520 marked a milestone in the iconic chronograph’s history – it marked the transition from a Zenith El Primero-based movement to the in-house calibre 4130.

This is the first in-house automatic Rolex chronograph made in versatile and robust stainless steel, making it a huge hit among fans.

Datejust Ladies

8 | Rolex Datejust Ladies ref 69173 / 79173

Feminine in size, weight, and looks, the 26mm Rolex Datejust Ladies is a staple of many women’s ensembles.

br
The steel and yellow gold combination, fluted bezel, and Jubilee bracelet can go from casual to dressy. It comes in a myriad of styles, from Roman and Arabic numerals to diamond, gold, and mother-of-pearl dials.

7 | Rolex Submariner Hulk ref 116610LV

The Rolex Submariner ‘Hulk’ is the most unorthodox Submariner model yet; and almost a decade after its launch in 2010, it still gets Rolex fans excited.

br
The Hulk’s green dial is a chameleon that transforms from a dark, almost black hue to a regal bright green under the sunlight. Paired with a green Cerachrom bezel, it appeals to modern watch tastes.

Submariner 16613

6 | Rolex Submariner 40 ref 16613

The Rolex Submariner is famous for its resistance to water diving, but it’s more popular as a sport and casual watch.

The reference 16613 is the two-tone version that comes in a blue & gold and black & gold combination. This brings the rich look of gold to the classic dive watch and still remains tasteful while doing so!

Explorer 216570

5 | Rolex Explorer II ref 216570

The latest Rolex Explorer II model is a bold and modern tool watch that’s popular among adventurers and those who want a versatile watch that you can wear 24/7.

Boasting a contemporary 42mm case, luminous markers against a black or “polar” white dial, and a classic steel bezel, it had a slow start, but soon won fans over.

Datejust 36

4 | Rolex Datejust 36 ref 16233

Many watches are called “classic” and “iconic”, but very few come close to the Rolex Datejust.

Its design codes have endured for decades and are easily recognizable even from afar – the Oyster case, the two-tone steel and yellow gold construction, and the supple Jubilee bracelet. You really cannot go wrong with this one.

br
Batman

3 | Rolex GMT Master Batman ref 116710

The Rolex GMT-Master ‘Batman’ blue-black bezel watch is the first of the Rolex bezels to get the bi-color treatment.

It was thought that the ceramic bezel can only be created in one color, but it all changed in 2013 with the release of the Batman. It ushered in a new era for the GMT-Master and remains as popular as ever.

Oyster Perpetual

2 | Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34 ref 114200

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is the purest of Rolex watches, and is considered as the best entry point to the brand. It has everything that makes a Rolex – the Oyster case and bracelet, Twinlock screw-down crowns, and just three hands.

Available in a range of sizes (from 26 to 39mm) and colors, you’ll find one that works in just about any setting.


br

Datejust 116334
br

1 | Rolex Datejust II ref 116334

The Rolex Datejust has been around since 1946 and the stainless steel reference 116334 presents the most recent innovations Rolex made to the watch – the 41mm case, the larger luminous hour markers, the larger Rolex crown, and 18k white gold fluted bezel.

With classic dial colors such as white, black, blue, grey, and silver, it’s a watch that can be worn on any occasion. If you want just one good watch on your wrist, make it this one.
