In a much-anticipated roll out of new watches for 2020, Rolex releases five new-generation Oyster Perpetual watches – often adding a burst of color to the mix. Here we take a close up look at the new Rolex Submariner, Rolex Datejust, Rolex Oyster Perpetual, and the beloved Rolex Sky-Dweller, as the entire Submariner family has been updated this year. Like everything Rolex does, the forthcoming watches are truly consistent with Rolex codes and aesthetics – even the pop of color, which the brand has done many times in its past. Here, we offer a comprehensive look at the Rolex 2020 watches.

Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner, 2020

For the Oyster Perpetual Submariner and the Submariner Date, Rolex releases a slightly redesigned and larger 41mm case that might be better for divers because of its size. The Submariner is equipped with a new movement that is being unveiled this year, the Caliber 3230, while the Submariner Date version is powered by the Caliber 3235 — marking the first time this time/date movement is used in the Submariner.

The different versions of the Submariner include a two-tone version with Oystersteel and 18-karat yellow gold Rolesor model and an Oystersteel with black dial. In fact, the big news is the non-date version in stainless steel.

The Submariner Date is offered in Oystersteel or in 18-karat white gold with new dial colors, including black with a green bezel and black with a blue bezel. There is also royal blue dial, again with the rotating bezel with Cerachrom insert.  The big news here is the and the new combination of black dial with blue bezel in 18-karat white gold.  (The green dial is being phased out.) All of the Submariners carry the Superlative Chronometer certification.

Rolex Datejust 2020

In its beloved Datejust line, the newness comes in the form of color. The new Rolesor Datejust 31mm (crafted using Oystersteel and 18-karat white gold) features a diamond-set bezel and an “aubergine” colored dial. It is fitted with the Caliber 2236 with high-tech materials, shock absorbers and 65 hours of power reserve.  There are four other new versions, as well, but with the different bezel choices, including smooth or fluted bezels and the different dial colors — as bold as the aubergine sunray dial, including mint green, white lacquer and dark grey — with a choice of either markers or Roman numerals — the possibilities are endless.
