Rolex has finally broken its silence, sliding into the new watch conversation with its signature authority. At one point, the Swiss giant said it would delay any announcements until 2021, such was the impact of Covid-19 on its mighty production schedules. But to the enormous pleasure of watch enthusiasts, it’s brought its delayed plans forward. Leading the line are the everyday classic Oyster Perpetual 36 and 41 collections. Both are powered by Rolex’s newly minted Calibre 3230, a class-leading automatic that delivers exceptional accuracy, as well as elevated resistance to the daily perils of shock and magnetism. But it’s the rainbow assortment of dial options that really catch the eye. While the more standard black and silver dial variants are available, both sizes feature a palette of poppy colours, including candy pink and turquoise. In these pallid times, the splash of pigment couldn’t be more welcome.
