    New Rolex Models up on their Website

    The Rolex website is showing the new models, and new movement.

    New 39mm Oyster Perpetual looks interesting !

    The design is nice, but the color combinations kinda annoy me.

    Also, new calibre: the 3255 http://www.rolex.com/watches/baselwo...ibre-3255.html

    Do you think it is related to this? Similar power reserve and another new movement?

    From Rolex....

    Thanks to a new barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3255 extends to three days. This means the watch will easily continue to run from Friday evening into Monday afternoon even if not worn or wound.

    From Tudor...

    Tudor’s new in-house movement is the calibre MT5612 and packs 70 hours of power reserve.

    I really like the 39mm rhodium with blue hour markers; but, what annoys me (as with other models) is: ROLEXROLEXROLEX.....
    I know it's a Rolex, I don't need telling an extra 12 times. Once on the dial will suffice, thanks.

    The green dabs on the blue dial seem weird. Wonder if the colours are more muted in real life? Never trust a stock photo and all that

    39mm sounds like an excellent size for that watch. The extra bits of color are an odd choice, but the improvements to the movement are a great step forward.

    I'm more curious about the new rubbery looking bracelet for the Yachtmaster. They are going to be flooded with requests to release it for the Sub if it isn't announced soon.

    I was relieved to see the green dots, as it means I can rule out one of these. Why would they do that???

    The bezel and lugs look less heavy on this new 39mm case than on the 36mm. Also eight of the indices are thinner.
