This is the Rolex you can't believe has just been discontinued (and these comments reveal how upset you are)

Editor's note: Earlier in the week, I wrote about 'The Rolex that got away' in reference to the rhodium dial OP ref. 114300. Turns out my tastes are not aligned with a huge majority of readers. We have since received more than 100 DMs, comments and emails decrying not the loss of this model, but the white dial OP at 39mm. "How could they discontinue the OP 39mm with the white dial," asked @jonathonbrown24. @grayhayes joined in: "The white was so…

What nickname has Instagram settled on for the Rolex Submariner ref. 126619LB in white gold?

Now that Rolex has released watches and ended that dreadful rumour that they were sitting 2020 out, the important work begins. Nicknaming them. The one that has perhaps caused the most contention, is this one, the Submariner ref. 126619LB in white gold.   We're going to tell you everything you need to know about it below.

The stomach-clenching moment came when I learned that the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 ref. 114300 would be discontinued. And the thing is, it's just about the last model I would have ever worried about losing. The Air-King? Shocked it's still around to be honest. The Explorer II? Due for a refresh. But a watch as classic and perennially on-trend as a 39mm OP?…

INTRODUCING: The legend of the Rolex Submariner Date 41mm Ref.126610LN grows (by 1mm)

Shock. That's been the general consensus for the last few days among our enthusiast community. Rolex has just unveiled the all-new Rolex Submariner Date 41mm Ref.126610LN, and they've made one of the biggest changes to the dive watch in its 51 years of existence. For the first time in the legendary moniker's history, the Oyster case of the new Submariner has been enlarged to 41mm, up from 40mm. Now that may not sound like a big deal to the dilettante,…

Is Rolex trend-chasing with its new colourful range of Oyster Perpetual models? A look back into the brand's colourful past…

The wild profusion of colours in the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual collection caught many by surprise this week. And it immediately had people drawing parallels with the colour suites of other brands. It begs the question, are these new sporty and youthful lacquer dials – in candy pink, turquoise blue, yellow, coral red and green – a blast from Rolex's past, or something completely new, perhaps inspired by other brands? A Brief History of Rolex Dials and Color Rolex is primarily known…
