What’s Hot At Watches & Wonders 2024: Rolex Updates Perpetual 1908 In Ice Blue And Debuts GMT-Master II With Monochrome Ceramic Bezel

For Watches & Wonders 2024, Rolex updates the Perpetual 1908 in ice blue and debuts a GMT-Master II with black and grey ceramic bezel
Rolex Perpetual 1908

Six of Rolex’s lines receive an update this year, starting with the debutant in 2023, the Rolex Perpetual 1908. The collection welcomes a new version in platinum, with a finely decorated ice blue guilloché dial bearing a geometric rice-grain motif laid out in a concentric pattern that appears to originate from the small seconds counter at 6 o’clock. A fluted bezel and filet sauté guilloché around the minute track add to the intricacy of the offering. 

Meanwhile, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is now rendered as a complementary pair: in white gold, with a diamond-set dial in white and black mother-of-pearl, a bezel set with 36 diamonds, and an Oysterflex bracelet—as two versions that are the inverse of each other. 

Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II

The Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in Oystersteel with a black dial and an Oyster bracelet or Jubilee bracelet now features, for the first time, a Cerachrom bezel insert in muted grey and black ceramic, while the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 and Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 both welcome two new versions: in Everose gold with a slate ombre dial and in white gold with a white mother-of-pearl dial for the former, and in yellow gold with a white lacquer dial and in Everose gold with a blue-green dial for the latter.

The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller in Everose or yellow gold and now fitted with a Jubilee bracelet, and Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea now offered in yellow gold, round out this year’s presentation.
