New Rolex Model Configurations Introduced at Baselworld 2017

March 22, 2017

Ahead of Baselworld opening to the public on March 23rd, Rolex has released images and information about their new 2017 models. Some of their choices are surprising, namely the yellow gold ceramic Daytona on Oysterflex and the gem-set Yacht-Master 40, but most of the updates fit into their current collection without upsetting the general aesthetic.
