The DP World Tour’s finest events
The Rolex Series is the premium tournament category on the DP World Tour Schedule and comprises the five most prestigious events on the tour: the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship; the Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic; the Genesis Scottish Open; the BMW PGA Championship; and the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai. Launched in 2017 and coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the partnership between Rolex and the European Tour Group, this collection of elite events delivers the highest quality golf, played in iconic locations, in the global spirit of the game.
Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship
First staged in 2006 and elevated to the top tier of DP World Tour events in 2019, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship is a staple on the Middle East Swing. Every year the tournament marks the start of the Rolex Series.
Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic
Dubai’s stunning skyline serves as the backdrop for the Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic. Founded in 1989 and staged at the Emirates Golf Club, the tournament is a highly anticipated fixture on the DP World Tour’s calendar.
Genesis Scottish Open
Founded in 1972, the Genesis Scottish Open has been held annually since 1986, rotating among the finest courses in Scotland. One of the DP World Tour’s peak events – and co-sanctioned by the PGA TOUR® – it is played the week before The Open.
BMW PGA Championship
The BMW PGA Championship was founded in 1955 by the Professional Golfers’ Association and is today held at the European Tour Group’s headquarters at the Wentworth Club in Surrey, England. This elite event was chosen as one of the founding tournaments of the Rolex Series in 2017.
DP World Tour Championship, Dubai
Founded in 2009, the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, is the final Rolex Series event of the season. Played at Jumeirah Golf Estates against a backdrop of the city’s shimmering skyscape, it is here that the No. 1 player on the DP World Tour Rankings is crowned champion.
The Day-Date 40
Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week, spelt out in full in a window on the dial. Exceptional precision, reliability, legibility and presence have made it the ultimate status watch, the embodiment of prestige. With the President bracelet, originally created especially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people. Like the elite group of golfers competing at the Rolex Series, it is a leader in its field.
