Rolex triumphs with this new interpretation of its original 1956 chronometer due in part to this grandiose manifestation and to Rolex’s relentless commitment to fine watchmaking


Arguably the most popular watch brand in the world and recently voted one of the coolest, Rolex is a classic Swiss brand that has been producing quality watches for nearly a century. Rolex keeps its products simple, rather than producing endless new lines it refines its original designs. Its ranges have proven to hold their value and Rolex can pride itself on being a true watch collector’s brand with international waiting lists.

Eve's Watch Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date Luxury Ladies Watch Review

At first glance

Big brand Rolex brings us a grand ladies watch in the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date. Rich in tone and noble in design – its deluxe royal green 36mm sunray dial and matching leather alligator strap is only surpassed by its 18ct yellow gold finishing.

It is equipped with the officially certified Swiss chronometer (COSC) 3155 self-winding mechanical movement qualifying this Rolex as a high-precision timepiece, although regrettably, the motion is hidden behind a solid case back as is typical of Rolex. Presented in an opulent array of Autumn/Winter colours, cognac, blue, cherry, chocolate and rhodium, the new Day-Date watch is a mouth-watering proposition indeed.

Up close and personal

The hour indexes are marked by small compact Roman numerals flanked with luminescent markers set against the lush green dial backdrop. A magnified large date window sits at 3 o’clock, and the headline feature at 12, the bespoke day display, is available in most native tongues. All this is surrounded by Rolex’s much imitated fluted bezel.

Elegantly fastened together by its signature majestic folding Oysterclasp, this watch is a respectable size and mass. Wrist movement triggers light reflection from the indentation detail on the crown and bezel lifting the watch from its dark depths.

Rolex triumphs with this new interpretation of its original 1956 chronometer due in part to this grandiose manifestation and to Rolex’s relentless commitment to fine watchmaking.
