Feature: 5 Rolex watches in our Christmas sale you’ll kick yourself for missing

Rolex is undoubtably the most recognisable watch brand out there—it even ranked number one in our Brand Week series not so long ago, to the surprise of, well … no one. If you were someone who agreed that Rolex earned the top spot in our poll, then you’ll be pleased to hear that we have a mighty selection of great watches from the crown in our Christmas sale. Here are some of our favourites…

Rolex Submariner 126610 LN

The Submariner is one of the greatest legends in the watch world, period. Developed with Jacques-Yves Cousteau in 1953, it quickly became the quintessential diver's watch, a reputation only cemented by appearances in the early Bond films. Today, its timeless design and unbeatable mechanical credentials continue to make it one of the brand's best-selling pieces, as well as one of the most versatile.

Rolex GMT Master II 16710

Released in 1983, the Rolex GMT-Master II has certainly made a lasting impression on the watch industry and being such an iconic watch, it is a highly sought-after piece. In fact, over the years the GMT Master has been worn by the likes of Mel Gibson, David Beckham and even the revolutionary Che Guevara. Rolex’s answer to a pilot’s watch, the GMT-Master is perfect for those who enjoy travelling and slick style.

Rolex Daytona 116500 LN

The Rolex Daytona—named after the race circuit in Florida that hosts the Rolex 24-hour race—epitomises the ultimate race car driver’s watch. The dial, free from a date window, is easy to read. The tachymeter enables quick speed calculations, while the shape is instantly recognisable and comfortable. Available in steel with a stunning Cerachrom bezel, it’s the Daytona's first major upgrade in 16 years, but it remains true to the retro design of the original.

Rolex Explorer II 216570

As in the name, the Rolex Explorer is a watch purpose-built for extremes, allowing adventurers to reach the highest peaks, the freezing lands of the arctic and the darkest corners whilst on caving expeditions. This model features a hardy Rolex Oystersteel bracelet and a chromalight display—making it easy to read in lowlight conditions. Perfect for adventurers, the Explorer is ideal for everyday too, giving the wearer the best of both worlds.

Rolex Deepsea 116660 - D-Blue

This is a very special Sea-Dweller diving watch that represents several major firsts for Rolex. Released in honour of James Cameron's headline-grabbing solo descent to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the watch had the highest water resistance rating of any watch available to the public (3,900m). Another first is the remarkable dial, which shifts like the ocean from blue to black—depicting the murky depths that Cameron tackled on his legendary dive.
