The Rolex GMT-Master II: Oystersteel 

At Baselworld 2018 Rolex introduces three new versions of the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in Oystersteel Everose Rolesor and Everose gold. One of this year’s flagship models, the new Oystersteel GMT-Master II, is equipped with directional rotatable bezel with two-colour Cerachrom insert in red and blue ceramic. The lugs and sides of its Oyster case have been re-visited and it is available exclusively on a Jubilee bracelet.

The Rolex GMT-Master II: Everose Gold & Everose Rolesor 

The second and third additions to the GMT-Master II range are introduced in Everose Rolesor, a combination of Oystersteel and Everose gold, and Everose gold. Both the Everose Rolesor and the Everose gold versions include a brown and black ceramic Cerachrom insert with moulded graduations and numerals.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona: Everose Gold 

In 2017 Rolex introduced three new versions of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona with a Monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic and an Oysterflex bracelet. In 2018 Rolex introduces a scintillant gem-set version in Everose gold. The bezel is set with 36 baguette-cut sapphires in a rainbow gradation, a further 11 baguette-cut sapphires are placed on the dial and match the colour of the corresponding point on the bezel.
