Our favourite Rolex watches for summer 2022

Rolex, a company synonymous with luxury and status, has launched their new, updated watches for 2022. It’s safe to say that with these updates, Rolex has again cemented the places of these iconic watches as future classics. 

If you are looking to invest in a Rolex watch this summer but aren’t sure which to choose, here’s a complete guide to our top 5 Rolex watches for summer 2022. 


Oyster Perpetual Air-King

This new Oyster Perpetual Air-King is a tribute to those who love all things to do with aviation and exploring the skies. The new 2022 Rolex has a 40mm Oystersteel case and bracelet and boasts  lots of new features. The silver metal of the bracelet is now offset with a back dial making it far easier to read to the face, as well as being beautifully balanced. 


Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II 

The GMT Master is the first choice for many travellers, so if you’re planning to jet off this summer, this is the perfect Rolex watch for you. The new 40mm Oystersteel version of the classic GMT Master is an amazing innovation. With a winding crown on the left, the date has been moved to 9 o’clock and the date disc has been modified which recent testing has shown has also led to improved precision.

What is really great about this new summer 2022 Rolex watch, is that the bezel insert is green and black- an original colour combination, exclusive to this watch. 


Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31

Make sure you’re summer ready with this stylish, evergreen Rolex Datejust 31. The dial now comes in three finishes- sunray, matt and drained, with the diamond-embellished floral motif catching the light and sparkling like never before. 

The watch also now comes in three new colours: Azzurro-blue dial with Oystersteel and white gold, olive green dial with yellow gold, and silver dial with Oystersteel and Everose gold.


Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42

In an exclusive first, Rolex have launched the sporty Yacht-Master 42 in yellow gold. This will appeal to collectors or to those who wish for a dressier, more sophisticated version of the classic timepiece. The 18K gold alloy watch is unique, created and cast in Rolex’s Geneva foundry. 

This Rolex watch has unbeatable resistance, making it perfect for all the adventures you’ll be having this summer 2022. 


Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40

The Day-Date Rolex watch is the epitome of prestige and innovation which is why it has been so popular for so many years. This new Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 has been exclusively crafted with precious metals. 

The original model was the first Rolex to display the date and day of the week spelt out across the watchface. The 2022 updated model now showcases a fluted bezel in the same material. This aesthetic and technical feat required many years of research and development due to the challenge of working with platinum.
