Geneva is currently holding a watch celebration, Watches & Wonders 2022, with Rolex joining in with the unveiling of its 2022 collection. One of the iconic pieces headlining the new releases is the green and black left-handed GMT-Master II, which has been long rumored. Joining the ranks of icons like Coke and Pepsi, this indelible timepiece now has a new color option in its 24-hour Cerachrom bezel and a classic black dial.
The Oystersteel model's case measures 40mm and is accompanied by a full Oyster bracelet. The model's new caliber 3285, dubbed by the Rolex brand as a "new-generation movement made entirely Rolex-made," powers the timepiece. Only ten patents are filed for this COSC-certified movement, and its Chronergy escapement ensures an impressive 70-hour power reserve.
The Air-King accompanies the GMT-Master II in the spotlight for Rolex's release this 2022. The Air-King comes in an entirely Oystersteel construction with solid links, a 40mm case with new crown guards, and a matching Oysterclasp. The watch's aviation-inspired black dial hasn't changed much, although it has been updated with the caliber 3230. The Air-King also offers a power reserve of 70 hours.
Rolex has made some groundbreaking changes to its innovations, including its Deepsea and Yacht-Master models. The Deepsea retains its robust 44mm and 12,800 feet depth rating and is updated with a brand new caliber 3235 with 14 new patented features. In addition, the model will be available in an 18k yellow gold option in 42mm, while the initial white gold design will carry a falcon's eye dial. Both the white gold and yellow gold options will be available in the same caliber 3235 as the Deepsea.
As usual, the 2022 releases will round out with a host of new Datejust, Lady Datejust, and Day-Date models in 28mm, 31mm, 36mm, 40mm, and 41mm. They come in materials, including platinum, white gold, Everose gold, yellow gold, and diamond embellishments - in more luxurious models.
