If you discount the Yacht Master, Pearlmaster and other "derivatives" of existing lineups, it would seem sometime in the mid 1960s with the Daytona.It seems like instead of coming out with new unseen models Rolex is staying with the tried & true and just changing their sizes?
Does anybody know when the last totally new model of Rolex was debuted?
How about a Milgauss with a black bi-directional rotating bezel?my prediction: Explorer II with new color ways, updated movements from 3187 to something more akin to the 3230 in the new sub. Maybe a unfortunate bump in size to 43 mm though I would LOVE to see it go back to the 40 mm size of the 16570.
Maybe they'll also update the Explorer I with the 3230 movement and a size from 39 to 40 (or heaven forbid 41!)
What I would LOVE to see is an update on the Milgauss - make it thinner, update the bracelet, update the movement and make it 38 or smaller.
That one is from the 50s.Hey wait a second True, is that actually a new one? 😮 Or is it
a rendering? ..Was looking for news of it, but didn't find any yet.
Holy cow, that is cool a heck honestly True ! 😲🤯That one is from the 50s.
Coming up for auction at Christie's today is an unbelievable original Rolex Milgauss (reference 6541), brought to market in the 1950s for use by those working in areas of high magnetism. These watches are particularly distinguished by their dial, hands, and bezel.www.hodinkee.com
