The origins of Rolex were wholly the concept of Hans Wilsdorf, its founder. He invented the first-ever Rolex waterproof, self-winding wristwatch. Rolex watches have ever since been the quality barometer for all luxury watches.
More than a hundred years later, the brand continues to produce exceptional watches that are sold worldwide. Let’s have a look at five Rolex watches that are a must-buy for watch collectors in 2021.
ROLEX SUBMARINER DATE 126613LN
This 2020 Rolex Submariner model has a stainless steel and yellow gold case, slightly larger than the previous generation. It has a sophisticated black dial. This watch is powered by the Calibre 3235 self-winding mechanical movement.Patented and fully developed by Rolex, this movement is extremely precise and resists shocks and magnetic fields. The new Chronergy escapement made of light-weight nickel-phosphorus improves the efficiency of movement by 15%.
2. ROLEX DATEJUST 126334
The Rolex Datejust is a classic dressy and stylish watch with a Rhodium dial and finely-cut diamond hour markers in an 18-carat gold setting. It comes with a stainless-steel case, a monobloc middle case, a screw-down case, and a winding crown which keeps the watch parts safe from dust and moisture. The dial is made of Rhodium with diamond hour-markers in an 18-carat gold setting. The slate dial and the black roman numerals with a green border make it a very classy watch.
3. ROLEX MILGAUSS Z-Blue 116400GV
The huge popularity of this otherwise average Rolex watch is down to the sheer artistry of the dial. This Oyster Perpetual has a Z-blue dial which is a vivid shade of electric blue. A patented green sapphire crystal ring encircles the dial and turns it luminescent. The orange second’s hand is shaped like a lightning bolt.
4. ROLEX DATEJUST 126300
The Datejust series, of Rolex watches, particularly in the older versions, is one of the most recognizable watch designs. The prominent attribute is a bright black dial and the Rolex signature Oyster steel bracelet. The sunray finish on Rolex dials is created by silver-plating the dial onto which additional color is added in tiny grooves reflecting from the center to the outer edges of the dial. The result is a dial with a characteristic subtle glow that moves as it catches the light.
5. ROLEX SUBMARINER DATE 126610LN
The Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date has a black dial with large luminescent hour markers. The solid-link Oyster bracelet and the glowing Chromalight display make for good visibility in dark waters and are ideal for sea divers. The dial has 60-minute graduations that help the diver safely monitor diving times.
