Rolex and Prestons are delighted to announce the official UK release of the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 featuring a bright new dial in green to mark the models 60th Anniversary.

My personal favourite [from the Rolex Baselworld 2016 collection] is the new Everose Day-Date 40 with brushed green dial to mark the anniversary of the most prestigious of all Rolex models. It is also available in 18ct white gold and both reference are available immediately. All Rolex watches now guarantee new superlative levels of performance, so there has never been a better time to explore the collection.
