Starting from the first House, this time the Swiss watchmaking House surprises us with many innovations, including the most important of the new Cosmograph Oyster Daytona 40 mm steel gold and black ceramic ring (which recalls the first model of the 65 ‘).

A clock that make dream lovers of vintage!
For women, Rolex has some new models, such as the Lady-DateJust 28 and the ‘opulent Pearlmaster 39; both show a masterful use of diamonds that adorn these important timepieces.
