Rolex Announced Its New 2020 Watches

September 2nd, 2020

Due to the global pandemic COVID-19, trade shows in the spring were cancelled, and production also ceased in the summer. However, there were lots of speculations and anticipation on the debut of new Rolex watches and the discontinuation of some models. Finally, the wait is over. Rolex has declared its new watches for 2020, and all eyes are today on it.

Rolex watches 2020

Every year new watch releases from Rolex results in a ruckus. In 2018, when Rolex introduced the current GMT-Master II “Pepsi” in stainless steel, it was instantly priced at double its retail price. Moreover, it was almost impossible to get hands-on it.

And the new Rolex watches of 2020 are expected to be even more challenging to get because of their scarcity. So the handful of new 2020 Rolex watches include new Submariner, Sky-Dweller, Datejust and Oyster Perpetual watches. Let’s explore them now.

New Rolex Submariner 2020

It is ideally the most significant gift for divers’ watch community and also, sporty watch lovers. The new 2020 Submariner collection includes many new Submariner Date versions and one Submariner No-Date.

No doubt, the brand has met up the expectation of its enthusiasts by unleashing this new generation of Rolex Submariner. However, what boosts the excitement is the fact that the new 2020 Submariner comes with a few incredible upgrades.

  • Rolex offered the new Sub a 41mm case, replacing the standard 40mm case.
  • Moreover, the watch features more slender lugs and also, a little bit broader bracelet with wider centre links.

All these features together make the new Submariner watch less square-looking than its previous sibling.

Rolex also paired the new generation of Submariner with coloured bezels framing the classic black dials.

  • For instance, the new steel Submariner Reference 126610LV features a black dial and green bezel.
  • On the other hand, the new Submariner Reference 126619LB in 18ct white gold sports a black dial framed by a blue bezel.

Now:

It should not come as a surprise that Rolex also equipped the current Submariner watches with new automatic movements.

While the Submariner no-date watches house the Calibre 3230 movement, the Submariner Date is powered by Calibre 3235.

Moreover, both the brand’s patented movements offer an increased power reserve up to 70 hours.

Thus, the significant upgrades for Rolex Submariner 2020 are –

  • A new case diameter of 41mm and slimmer lugs
  • New generation movements – Calibre 3235 (Submariner Date) & Calibre 3230 (Submariner No-Date)
  • Stainless steel Submariner with green bezel and black dial.
  • 18ct white gold Submariner now with blue bezel and black dial.
  • The Submariner “Hulk” and Submariner “Smurf” discontinued.

New Rolex Datejust 2020

Another new addition to the brand’s catalogue is the Datejust 31 in White Rolesor versions. Traditionally, the white Rolesor timepieces sport only the bezels made of 18ct white gold.

However, the new Datejust 31 references are available in different dial colours, from green, grey to muted silver and aubergine.

Also, you can choose between a dressy Jubilee bracelet and a sporty Oyster bracelet.

Moreover, the new Rolex Datejust 31 watches house the Calibre 2236 movement.

It comes with a Syloxi hairspring and has 55hours of power reserve.

Thus, the significant upgrades for new Rolex Datejust 31 are –

  • White Rolesor version of Datejust 31
  • A new Datejust 31 with diamond bezel
  • New Datejust 31 watches in White Rolesor featuring fluted bezels.

New Rolex Oyster Perpetual 2020

The new Rolex 2020 watches also include the largest version of Oyster Perpetual to date. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch comes with a 41mm case diameter, and it is the biggest size available currently in the Oyster Perpetual lineup.

In addition to this, Rolex has also upgraded the Oyster Perpetual 36 collection by offering new movements and dials.

However, Rolex offers the new Oyster Perpetual 41 and Oyster Perpetual 36 versions the choice of vibrant coloured dials.

  • You will notice notable changes on the silver dial of the new Oyster Perpetual watches.
  • The dial flaunts yellow gold hands and hour markers in place of white gold accents that are typically found in Oyster Perpetual dials.

Moreover, both the new Oyster Perpetual references sports the latest generation automatic Calibre 3230 movement.

Thus, the significant upgrades for new Rolex Oyster Perpetual are –

  • New Oyster Perpetual 41.
  • The Oyster Perpetual of 39mm discontinued
  • Updated Oyster Perpetual 36 lineup
  • New vibrant coloured dials
  • New generation Calibre 3230 movement.

New Rolex Sky-Dweller 2020

Rolex equipped the new Sky-Dweller watches the ever first time with Oysterflex bracelets. The Oysterflex bracelet appeared in 2015 with the then-new Yacht-Master in Everose gold. Later, some solid gold Daytona watches were also fitted with this bracelet.

However, the Oysterflex bracelet may appear like a standard rubber strap, but it has a metal blade interior and sheathed in the black elastomer.

Rolex unveiled an Everose gold version and yellow gold version of the new Sky-Dweller.

Besides these, other features in the new Sky-Dweller watches remain the same, including Ring Command fluted gold bezel, 42mm case size, the signature annual calendar functionality and dual time-zone.

Thus, the significant upgrades for new Rolex Sky-Dweller are –

  • Rolex Sky-Dweller watches now with Oysterflex bracelet
  • New 18ct yellow gold Sky-Dweller with Oysterflex bracelet and three dial options
  • New 18ct Everose gold Sky-Dweller with Oysterflex bracelet and the choice of three dials.

Rolex Day-Date 36: A Technical Achievement in 1956

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date was a significant innovation when it was launched in 1956. While the watch flaunted the date complication on its dial, it was the first wristwatch to illustrate the day of the week at 12 o’clock position in an arc-shaped window. Moreover, the manifestation of the day spelt out in full is available in twenty-six languages.

The Rolex Day-Date comes with its symbolic President bracelet that makes it instantly recognisable. While the watch has been worn by many noteworthy directors, political figures and visionaries, the Day-Date eventually came to be known as the ‘Presidents’ watch’.

Innovative Dial Design

The new generation Rolex Day-Date 36 retains the historic President style including the calendar windows on the dial, precious metal fabrication and also, the semi-circular links on the metal bracelet. The new Rolex Day-Date watches are available in 18ct yellow gold, white gold and Everose gold, equipped with diamond bezels and fluted bezels in some versions.

However, there are two unique dial designs with a concentric gradient to choose from – one, in 18ct yellow gold with a green ombre dial and second, a brown ombre dial in 18ct Everose gold. Other dial options in the new generation Day-Date 36 consist of two hard stoned dials – one in veined turquoise and another in pink opal. Moreover, the last choice of the dial includes a full diamond pave dial, adorned with ten rainbow-coloured, baguette-cut sapphires.

Calibre 3255: A New Generation Movement

The new Rolex Day-Date 36 watches are powered by the Rolex’s patented calibre 3255. This self-winding mechanical movement provides significant gains in case of power reserve, precision, reliability, resistance to magnetic fields and shocks. With the Rolex patent Chronergy escapement, the Calibre 3255 integrates high energy efficiency with high reliability.

Moreover, the self-winding movement is equipped with an advanced blue Parachrom hairspring, made of a paramagnetic alloy developed by Rolex and also, is fitted with a Rolex overcoil. This makes the Calibre 3255 nearly ten times more precise in case of shocks compared to a conventional hairspring, and the Rolex overcoil maintains its regularity in every position. The new generation Rolex Day-Date equips this calibre for the first time that offers a power reserve up to about 70hours.

The Oyster Case: Water-resistant up to 100metres

The Oyster case of the Rolex Day-Date 36 is an epitome of elegance and robustness, water-resistance up to a depth of 330ft (100m). While the middle case is made of 18ct yellow gold, white gold or Everose gold, the case back is screwed down hermetically using a special tool that can be accessed only by Rolex watch manufacturers.

Indeed, the Oyster waterproof case offers the optimum protection for the high precision movement of the Rolex Day-Date 36. However, the crystal is crafted from virtually scratch-proof sapphire. It is equipped with a Cyclops lens at the 3 o’clock position for reading the date easily.
