SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER CERTIFICATION

The precision of a
Rolex Superlative Chronometer
after casing is of the order
of 2/+2 seconds per day.

All Rolex watches are covered by the Superlative


Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015.
This exclusive designation testifies that the watch
has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted
by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own
criteria, which exceed watchmaking norms and standards.
The certification applies to the fully assembled watch,
after casing the movement, guaranteeing superlative
performa nce on the wrist in terms of precision, power
reserve, waterproofness and self-winding. The precision
of a Rolex Superlative Chronometer after casing is of the
order of 2/+2 seconds per day, or more than twice that
required of an official chronometer.
The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by
the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is
coupled with an international five-year guarantee.

COSMOGRAPH
DAYTONA
A WATCH BORN TO RACE

ROLEX IS INTRODUCING A NEW


VERSION OF ITS OYSTER PERPETUAL
COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA IN 904 L STEEL,
WITH A MONOBLOC CERACHROM BEZEL,
DEVELOPED AND PATENTED BY ROLEX,
IN BLACK CERAMIC.

CERACHROM BEZEL

Exceptionally durable
and legible.

This latest evolution is a blend of high technology and sleek


aesthetics, and pays tribute to the heritage of this legendary
chronograph. The black bezel is reminiscent of the 1965
model that was fitted with a black Plexiglas bezel insert.

CERACHROM BEZEL AND MEASURING SPEED

Created by Rolex in 1963, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph


Daytona is a watch born to race. It has established an
extraordinary track record in the world of motor sport
thanks to its reliability and performance. Known simply as
the Daytona, the watch is one of the best known chrono
graphs in the world and has assumed the rank of an icon.
A key part of the models identity is the bezel engraved
with a tachymetric scale for measuring average speeds of
up to 400 miles or kilometres per hour. The new monobloc
Cerachrom bezel in high-tech ceramic offers a number of
advantages: it is corrosion resistant, virtually scratchproof
and the colour is unaffected by UV rays. This extremely
durable bezel also offers an exceptionally legible tach
ymetric scale, thanks to the deposition of a thin layer
of platinum in the numerals and graduations via a PVD
(Physical Vapour Deposition) process. The monobloc
Cerachrom bezel is made in a single piece and holds
the crystal firmly in place on the middle case, ensuring
waterproofness.

A HOMAGE TO AVIATION

THE NEW OYSTER PERPETUAL


AIR-KING, A WATCH THAT PERPETUATES
THE AERONAUTICAL HERITAGE
OF THE ORIGINAL ROLEX OYSTER.

FUNCTIONALITY

The prominent minutes scale


can be used for navigational
time readings.
The new Air-King, with a 40 mm case in 904L steel,
features a distinctive black dial with a combination of large
3, 6 and 9 numerals marking the hours and a prominent
minutes scale for navigational time readings. The dial bears
the name Air-King in the same lettering that was designed
specially for the model in the 1950s, together with the
Rolex logo in green and yellow its first appearance on
a dial. The seconds hand is green, the emblematic colour
of the brand.

A HOMAGE TO AVIATION

The new Air-King epitomizes Rolexs privileged ties with


the world of aviation during its golden age in the 1930s.
It was a period when spectacular progress in aircraft
performance constantly expanded humanitys capacity
to conquer the skies, and led to the introduction of long-
distance flights. One of the pioneers of this era, English
aviator Charles Douglas Barnard, set a number of flight
records. Of the Oyster, he said: The peculiar qualities
of this Rolex watch render it eminently suitable for flying
purposes and I propose to use it on all my long-distance
flights in the future. In 1933, Oyster watches accompanied the Houston Expedition as it made the first-ever
flight over Mount Everest at an altitude exceeding
10,000 metres (33,000 feet) in extreme weather conditions. In 1934, Owen Cathcart-Jones and Ken Waller made
a return voyage from London to Melbourne (Australia) in
record time with a twin-engine De Havilland Comet, using
a Rolex Oyster as their on-board chronometer. Todays
new Air-King pays tribute to the pioneers of flight and the
Oysters role in the epic story of aviation.

ROLESOR

Gold and steel


in perfect harmony.

The new Datejust 41 is offered in yellow or Everose Rolesor


versions a combination of 904L steel and either 18 ct
yellow or Everose gold with a wide selection of dials.
Rolexs Datejust is the archetype of the classic watch
thanks to functions and aesthetics that never go out of
fashion. Launched in 1945, it was the first self-winding
waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date
in a window at 3 oclock on the dial, and consolidated all
the major innovations that Rolex had contributed to the
modern wristwatch until then. Aesthetically, the Datejust
has spanned eras while retaining the enduring codes that
today still make it one of the most recognized and recognizable of watches.

ROLESOR, A MARRIAGE OF GOLD AND STEEL

Rolesor, the combination of gold and steel on a Rolex


watch, has been a signature feature of the brand since
1933, when the name was registered. The Rolesor concept
is simple: the bezel, the winding crown as well as the centre
bracelet links are made of 18 ct yellow or Everose (Rolexs
exclusive patented pink gold alloy) gold; the middle case
and the outer links of the bracelet are made of 904L steel.
Introduced on the Datejust in 1948, Rolesor contributed
largely to the legendary status of this wristwatch.

MASTERFUL GEM-SETTING

The art of gem-setting

The Pearlmaster 39 combines to perfection Rolexs art
of watchmaking and sophisticated gem-setting of the
highest order. This precious watch is also equipped with
the new-generation calibre 3235, backed by 14 patents,
incorporating the Chronergy escapement developed

graduations stand out clearly against a matt, sand-blasted
background. This characteristic bezel which enables the

PIONEERING SPIRIT

A watch launched in 1953


in the wake of the successful
ascent of Everest.

The models characteristic 3, 6 and 9 numerals are now


filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting
blue glow, like the hour markers and hands. This exclusive
Chromalight display offers exceptional legibility in any
conditions. The hands are also broader and longer for
enhanced visual comfort.

SCALING NEW HEIGHTS

The Explorer is emblematic of the privileged relationship


that has always bound Rolex and exploration. In the 1930s,
Rolexs pioneering spirit prompted it to equip numerous
Himalayan expeditions with watches. Their observations
had a direct impact on the development of the Oyster and
the quest for greater precision, robustness and reliability.
On 29 May 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay
were the first to reach Everests 8,848-metre summit. This
remarkable human adventure also served to reinforce the
reputation of the Oyster watches that accompanied the
expedition. The Oyster Perpetual Explorer, launched in
1953 in the wake of the successful ascent of the worlds
highest mountain, soon achieved iconic status.

elegance, tradition and poetry, showing on a single dial
the current day, the days gone by and the days to come.
The Cellini DualTime, with its simultaneous display of
the time here and the time elsewhere, grants its wearers
the gift of temporal ubiquity.
