Rolex GMT-Master II Collection

Rolex GMT Master is known as the ultimate cosmopolitan watch. Its history starts in 1955. It is the time when the first edition of GMT Master was released. The idea came from Pan-American World Airways, which asked Rolex for a unique tool watch that would allow pilots to keep track of time in different time zones. The same year, Rolex launched the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master, an actual tool watch. Since its primary purpose was to indicate two time zones, the Swiss company named it after Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This unique feature of showing two time zones is precisely what gave the watch its individuality.

In 2022, Rolex decided to bring the original GMT Master (created in 1955) back to life and presented the GMT Master II with the crown on the left side of the case and a green and black bezel insert. In 2023, new versions were added, including various dial and bezel colours. Today, you get a chance to purchase the version of GMT Master that best suits your style. In our catalogue, you will see Oystersteel, 18 ct white gold, 18 ct Everose gold, 18 ct yellow gold, and Everose Rolesor models.

Rolex Submariner Collection

The Rolex Submariner model was launched in 1953. It was initially created specifically for underwater exploration and diving purposes.  It was the first wristwatch to be waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). Since its creation, the Submariner has gradually evolved to become a more waterproof, durable, and functional timepiece. Its waterproofness, which is the most important characteristic of the diver’s watches, eventually increased to 300 metres (1,000 feet). The latest version of the Rolex Submariner was released in 2020. It has a unidirectional rotatable bezel, triple waterproofness system and chromalight display. These features make the watch a practical tool for divers, but nowadays, it’s widely used even by celebrities and successful businessmen, as well as anyone who appreciates the delicate art of craftsmanship and innovative way of thinking.

Rolex Datejust Collection

Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic pieces in history. Its first creation dates back to 1945. The latest version was released in 2020. This release brought several updates and enhancements to this elegant model. It features a redesigned case with slimmer lugs and new dial options,  including vibrant colours like blue, green, and coral, as well as traditional choices like black and white. Datejust collection is based on the notion that no one day is like another, and it is up to us to make every moment count. If you try to decipher the symbolism behind this wristwatch, you will find that it’s a symbol of development. Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf set the goal for Datejust to encourage human progress. Ever since then, it has set the highest standards in watchmaking and encouraged us to be in charge of our lives.
