Save The Date 如约而至

Ask any watch enthusiast about Rolex, and chances are you’ll get regaled with stories about the foundry where Rolex creates the 18 ct gold alloys used for its watches or the two-colour Cerachrom bezels on the new GMT-Master II. Few will think of the Datejust collection, one of the more understated models of the Rolex family. The Oyster Perpetual Datejust is the archetype of the classic watch, thanks to functions and aesthetics that never go out of fashion. Aesthetically, the Datejust has spanned eras while retaining the enduring codes that today still make it one of the most recognisable of watches.

This year, Rolex introduces the new generation of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31, with redesigned case sides and lugs in 18 ct white, yellow or Everose gold. The new Datejust 31 is equipped with calibre 2236 for the first time, which provides great stability in the face of temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise in case of shocks.

Amongst the many combinations available, one, in 18 ct white gold, is fitted with a white mother-of-pearl dial and a diamond-set bezel. Another, in 18 ct yellow gold, features a malachite dial with a Roman VI and IX in 18 ct yellow gold set with diamonds, and a version in 18 ct Everose gold is introduced with a diamond-paved dial inlaid with pink mother-of-pearl butterflies.

The Oyster case of the Datejust 31 is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. Its refined middle case is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold. Rolex uses only the highest quality natural stones and equips its team of gem-setters with the latest technologies to create gem-set timepieces that exude excellence.  The Datejust 31 is no exception.

劳力士 (Rolex) 一口气推出3款全新版 GMT-Master II,所有新款腕表均搭载新一代 3285 型机械机芯,让人耳目一新。而新版蚝式钢款同时配备双向旋转外圈与亮眼的红蓝双色 Cerachrom 陶质24小时刻度字圈。除了五格链节纪念型表带,表壳外侧及表耳也经过重新精心设计。

如果询问任何一名手表发烧友或收藏家关于劳力士的独家事迹,肯定环绕着劳力士铸造 18 ct 金的故事,或者是议论新

GMT-Master II 上的双色 Cerachrom 陶质表圈。很少人会谈到 Datejust 系列——其实这是错误认知。

作为劳力士家族中较为低调的成员之一,蚝式恒动日志型(Oyster Perpetual Datejust)手表是经典的原型,这要归功于它永不过时的功能和美学。从美学角度探视,Datejust 已经跨越各个时代,至今仍然是最受认可的手表之一,也是经久不衰的典范。

今年,劳力士推展新一代的 Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31,以 18 ct白金、黄金或永恒玫瑰金重新铸造设计了外壳和表耳。全新的Datejust 31 首次搭载 2236 型机械机芯,在温度变化的状况下展现无可比拟的稳定性,而且高出十倍精度的抗震功能。

在众多的组合中,其中一款 18 ct 白金钢表配有优雅白色珍珠母和钻石表盘。另一款 18 ct 黄金则采用美丽孔雀石,雋刻罗马数字时刻VIIX的镶钻表盘;至于 18 ct 永恒玫瑰金款则以粉色珍珠母蝴蝶与钻石镶嵌的表盘脱颖而出。

Datejust 31 的蚝式表壳具备 100 米的防水深度。精致的中层表壳是由 18 ct 白金、黄金或永恒玫瑰金所铸造。劳力士精选优质的天然珍贵宝石,并配备尖端宝石镶嵌技术团队,创造出最卓越的宝石镶嵌钟表,当然 Datejust 31 也毫不例外。
