Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 New Models with Floral-Motif Dials

Rolex has released several new Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 watch models with eye-catching floral-motif dials. Inspired by wild summer meadows, the design comprises 24 flowers that stand out distinctly from one another thanks to their finishes – either sunray, matt or grained. Each of the flowers is adorned by a diamond set into the centre.

Three floral-motif dial styles are available: Azzurro Blue, Olive Green and Silver. The new Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 watches are offered in 18K Yellow gold, 18K White gold, 18K Rose gold, White Rolesor (combining Oystersteel and white gold), Everose Rolesor (combining Oystersteel and Everose gold) and Yellow Rolesor (combining Oystersteel and yellow gold) versions.

The Oyster case of the new Datejust 31 is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). Its middle case is made of Oystersteel or 18 ct gold. The case back, edged with fine fluting, is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement.

Depending upon the reference, the bezel can be domed, fluted or diamond-set. The Twinlock winding crown, fitted with a double waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case. The sapphire crystal is fitted with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date.

The new versions of the Datejust 31 are equipped with calibre 2236, a movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.

Calibre 2236 is fitted with a Syloxi hairspring that is produced by Rolex and patented. This silicon hairspring has a patented geometry that ensures the calibre’s regularity in any position. The movement also contains a paramagnetic nickel-phosphorus escape wheel. The oscillator is fitted on the Rolex-designed, patented high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, increasing the movement’s shock resistance.

Calibre 2236 is equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor and offers a power reserve of approximately 55 hours.

With these new Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 watches, the brand is also offering three bracelet options: Oyster, Jubilee and President.

Developed at the end of the 1930s, the three-piece Oyster link bracelet remains the most universal bracelet in the Oyster Perpetual collection and is known for its robustness.

Created specially for the launch of the prestigious Oyster Perpetual Day-Date in 1956, the three-piece link President bracelet, made only from 18 ct gold or 950 platinum, is still reserved exclusively for the Day-Date and precious metal versions of the Datejust.

Supple and comfortable, the five-piece link Jubilee bracelet was specially created for the Oyster Perpetual Datejust, which was launched in 1945.

Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.
