Every watch gatherer around the globe knows about this straightforward truth: what Rolex is about to release for the following version of Baselworld is outstanding amongst other maintained mysteries on the planet. Regardless of whether we might want to, we can’t open Rolex’s vault. Notwithstanding, here at Monochrome-Watches, throughout recent years, one of our favored games is to envision what Rolex might actually present. Much the same as we did in 2014 , here are our forecasts for the Rolex 2015 Novelties, what we need to see from Rolex at Baselworld 2015.
Remember a year ago. We anticipated in our ‘ talk article ‘ 5 watches, the 5 potential Rolexes of Baselworld 2014. We’d love to envision that Rolex read our articles since, a year ago, we got three of our expectations spot on just like Rolex presented them: the Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi (in white gold lamentably), the Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 and the Rolex Milgauss with blue dial . Enough reminders… Let’s examine the Rolex 2015 novelties that we might want to see at Baselworld 2015.
Rolex Daytona Stainless Steel Ceramic Bezel Ref. 116520
Last year, we previously imagined of a Rolex Daytona with a particularly ceramic bezel . We even needed to see a vintage re-issue of the sublime Rolex Daytona 6263 ‘Big Red’, by cleaning the dial from the numerous engravings and making a Panda format. This was unquestionably a decent thought yet Rolex isn’t known to think back previously. All things considered, the Crown tends to improve its models with slight changes. Ceramic is one these improvements.
We realize that Rolex loves ceramic for its bezels (that they call Cerachrom). Ceramic has some predominant properties: being for all intents and purposes scratch safe, an ability to keep its colour everlastingly and never blur in addition to the reality that it is almost difficult to trade them yourself or with post-retail parts (thinking about the exorbitant cost of such parts). Cerachrom bezels are now in use on the Daytona – on the Platinum version or on the pink gold with cowhide tie release – so it appears appropriate to envision a particularly ceramic bezel on the Stainless Steel version of Rolex’s chronograph. It ought to presumably be the lone improvement and the remainder of the watch will absolutely stay indistinguishable. Notwithstanding, let’s envision dark sub-counters rings to reproduce a touch of the old Panda look.
Rolex Daytona Everose gold on Bracelet with Ceramic Bezel Ref. 116505
As we contacted on earlier, the Rolex Daytona as of now exists with ceramic bezels. The first presented (in 2011) was the Pink Gold ‘Everose’ version however on a cowhide tie and with a chocolate earthy colored dial. Obviously, if the stainless steel version is possibly one of the Rolex 2015 novelties, such a Cerachrom bezel on a gold Daytona is much more likely, as Rolex is utilized to present its improvements first on gold releases, prior to moving to the stainless steel watches – just to make them more alluring (and unattainable too…).
For Baselworld 2015, we anticipate that Rolex should come with more ceramic bezels. The Rolex Daytona Everose gold on Bracelet with Ceramic Bezel would be a characteristic addition into a assortment effectively wide however maturing. With no other oddity than this bezel, the Daytona Everose as of now looks splendid. But… We’re discussing Rolex, an incredibly amazing and conventional brand, yet additionally a capricious one. A fully new Rolex Daytona with an extra date and a bigger case is additionally something that could occur. Stand by and see…
Rolex GMT Master II Coke Stainless Steel Ref. 116710 RONR (Rouge/Noir)
Last year, Rolex satisfied us with a superb Pepsi version of the GMT Master II . There’s no uncertainty about the magnificence of this watch so cherished by watch gatherers. Nonetheless, by far most of Rolex lovers are not tycoons, and a watch estimated more than 30,000 Euro is well past the methods for most. This is the motivation behind why a large portion of us will only contemplate this Pepsi as opposed to wearing it, because of the 18k white gold case and wristband. Why this decision of material? For the most part in light of the fact that a consistent two-tone ceramic bezel (comprehend: not dark) is incredibly hard to accomplish and consequently expensive. It’s subsequently regular to incorporate it on a gold watch.
For this explanation, we’ve envisioned another restoration, the resurrection of the dark and red release of the GMT Master II, otherwise called the Coke, in a more reasonable bundle as the case and arm band would be created in stainless steel. The GMT Master II in stainless steel as of now exists in 2 releases, the first with monochromatic bezel (in dark) and a subsequent two-tone version, blending beat up, a.k.a Batman. This Coke release could undoubtedly please the gatherers by carrying some newness to the Rolex 2015 Collection and be a sensible proposal in a troublesome monetary context.
Rolex GMT Master II Root Beer Two-Tone Ref. 116713 LM (lunette marron)
Two-Tone watches are not particularly famous on our old landmass. Two-Tone Rolexes are another story and we can discover some illustration of this in practically all the assortments, from the Submariner, the Yacht-Master, the Daytona or the Datejust. It appears to be that Rolex is one of only a handful few makes to have the option to sell such combinations. The GMT Master II is likewise accessible in a blend of stainless steel and yellow gold. Accordingly, we’ve envisioned another version of a two-tone GMT Master II.
If you think once again into Rolex’s history, perhaps the most excellent two-tone watches was the GMT Master Root Beer, a watch that featured a earthy colored dial and a both earthy colored and gold bezel embed. As a result of the adoration gave by Rolex’s devotees to the GMT Master Root Beer, we decided to once again introduce and modernize this watch. Our Rolex GMT Master II Root Beer Two-Tone Ref. 116713 LM (for ‘lunette marron‘, earthy colored bezel) comes with a steel and yellow gold case, an earthy colored dial (that would presumably come with a sun-burst finish) and a solitary tone ceramic bezel in earthy colored, as a two tone ceramic bezel blending earthy colored and gold is positively impractical yet.
