In our last blog we took a closer look at our favourite yellow gold luxury watches at the moment. We certainly love a bit of wrist candy and bursts of colour. However, as seasons come and go, white watches continuously remains on-trend. Many people prefer white gold, and as summer is fast approaching, Rolex have the perfect selection. Let’s not forget that a pure, white watch will also show off that sun kissed tan even more!
The White Gold Rolex Sky Dweller (ref. 326939) is a stunning timepiece. As Rolex rightly state, “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. As well as its good looks, the Rolex Sky Dweller provides the information global travellers need to keep track of time at a glance. The two time zones are displayed simultaneously on this extremely distinctive ivory dial. Combined with its 18ct white gold bracelet, this Rolex is going to turn heads!
We don’t just want to focus on our gentleman readers this week. Of course, some ladies do like to wear a more masculine watch, however we couldn’t resist highlighting the wonderfully feminine Rolex Pearlmaster 29 (ref.80319), 29mm, white gold and covered in diamonds; what is not to like? (diamonds are a girl’s best friend after all). The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster was launched in 1992, and has made an impact ever since. Even though they are set with diamonds, rubies, sapphires or emeralds, this timepiece somehow still remains understated.
The Rolex Cellini Time Watch (ref.50509) is the essence of a timeless classic. Its brilliant white dial is simple and clear, but plays tribute to the timeless codes of watchmaking.The new Rolex Cellini collection celebrates elegance and the cases come in 18ct white or Everose gold. We just love the white gold in contrast with the dial. If you don’t like to show off with too much bling, this could be the Rolex to choose!
What can we say about the new Cosmograph Daytona (ref.116500LN) that Rolex have introduced this year? It is a watch of beauty! However in this latest edition Rolex have also developed and patented a monobloc Cerachrom bezel. This is a blend of high technology and sleek aesthetics. The black bezel against the white watch dial is reminiscent of the 1965 model that was fitted with a black Plexiglas bezel insert. The heritage of this iconic Rolex model is so important to remember today. Created in 1963, the Daytona has remained the first choice of many Rolex enthusiasts ever since.
Many celebrities have been spotted wearing white gold Rolex’s over the years, but we think Brad Pitt pulls off his Steel, Automatic Rolex Daytona ref.16520 fabulously in this black and white photograph.
We currently have some stunning Rolex white gold watches available, many with pure white dials too. Our pick of the week is this 2006 Rolex Datejust (ref.116200) which is in perfect condition!
