Rolex watch models

 6263 5287127 011Rolex has three watch lines: Oyster Perpetual, Professional and Cellini (the Cellini line is Rolex’s line of ‘dressy’ watches). The primary bracelets for the Oyster line are named Jubilee, Oyster and President.

Modern models

The name of the watch lines in catalogs is often “Rolex Oyster Perpetual ______” or “Rolex ______”; Rolex Oyster and Oyster Perpetual are generic names and not specific product lines, except for the 36mm Oyster Perpetual model, which goes by no other name and is a model unto itself. According to reviews, the Air-King is the least expensive member of the Oyster Perpetual family and is meant for understated elegance and simplicity. The Date is related to the Air-King but adds a date display. Certain models from the Date and Datejust are almost identical, however the Datejust has a 36mm case and a 20mm bracelet compared to the Date’s 34mm case and 19mm bracelet. Modern versions of the Oyster Perpetual Date and Datejust models share Rolex’s 3135 movement, with the most recent change to the 3135 movement being the introduction of Rolex’s “parachrom bleu” hairspring, which provides increased accuracy. As the Date and Datejust share a movement, both have the ability to adjust the date forward one day at a time without adjusting the time; this feature is not confined to the Datejust. The Datejust is available in a wider range of metals and has a greater range of dials available.
