Every dial a discovery

The new Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 welcomes dials made of decorative stone in shimmering tones that evoke the atmosphere of the Mediterranean coast. Green aventurine, carnelian and turquoise are paired with watches in 18 ct Everose, yellow and white gold respectively.

As expressions of Rolex’s dial-making expertise, the new Day-Date 36 watches are also testament to the brand’s perfect mastery of the gem-setting art. This union of exceptional stones, gems and precious metals emphasizes the distinction and elegance of this prestigious watch.

Making each watch one of a kind

Decorative stones

The crystallized effects, matrices or veins peculiar to these decorative stones make every watch face a unique work of art. The stone reveals its distinctive traits only once it has been crafted. Individual finishing of each dial is then performed to satisfy the brand’s exacting quality requirements.

Made of 18 ct Everose gold, the first variant is presented with a dial in green aventurine, a stone with a finely crystallized surface. The second is in 18 ct yellow gold and its dial is cut from carnelian, a stone typified by lines of varying shapes and sizes forming an artful orangey cameo of patterns. The third,  crafted from 18 ct white gold, features a turquoise dial textured with natural veining.


The three new Day-Date 36 versions are endowed with bezels set with 52 brilliant-cut diamonds. Their hour markers and Roman numeral VI and IX are also encrusted with diamonds.

Rolex uses only naturally occurring gemstones of the highest quality, very carefully selected according to strict criteria of purity, clarity and intensity. The master gem-setters at Rolex are hailed for their technique in producing flawless setting and alignment and emphasizing the exquisite brilliance of the precious stones.

Rolex gold

The 18 ct gold that adorns Rolex watches is created and cast in the Manufacture‘s own foundry. These exclusive alloys, composed of 75 % pure gold and a mix of silver, copper, palladium and indium, are the fruit of long years of research to perfect the process. Through its established expertise, the brand produces several types of 18 ct gold: yellow gold, white gold and Everose gold, an exclusive patented 18 ct pink gold alloy, developed by Rolex.
