We’re just a week away from one of the most anticipated events in the luxury watch industry: Watches & Wonders 2024. Set to begin next Monday, April 8th, in Geneva, Switzerland, the event opens its doors to the public from April 13th to 15th. At the heart of every watch enthusiast’s conversation is one burning question: “What will Rolex unveil this year?”

The Speculation Game: Rolex’s Next Big Release

Diving into this speculation is like entering a captivating maze of theories and predictions. Online sources and aficionados are buzzing, showcasing mockups ranging from a Rolex Explorer I with a white dial to the tantalizing prospect of a modern-day Turnograph. The intrigue is palpable, as the community eagerly speculates about Rolex’s next move.

A Deep Dive into Rolex Rumors with Rolex Magazine

A standout rumor I stumbled upon comes from the esteemed “Rolex Magazine,” a treasure trove of Rolex lore. The site hints at a potential revelation that’s not widely discussed elsewhere: a new GMT-Master II adorned with a red and orange bezel. This bold color combination is intriguing and somewhat polarizing, as it deviates from the more traditionally expected “Coke” bezel GMT, which pairs red with black that me and so many collectors have been waiting years for Rolex to release in a ceramic bezel variation.

The Controversial Beauty: Rolex’s Red and Orange GMT-Master II

The idea of a red and orange bezel on a GMT-Master II is daring, and opinions will undoubtedly vary. Yet, Rolex has a knack for turning the unexpected into the exceptional. As a fan of both colors, I can’t help but think this would be a striking choice if it comes to fruition. Supporting this speculation is a patent filed by Rolex in February, now public, describing a process suited for creating a two-tone ceramic with combinations like black and red or red and orange—hinting at the exciting possibilities that might await us.

At the end of the day…

As Watches & Wonders 2024 approaches, the anticipation builds. Whether Rolex surprises us with this vibrant GMT-Master II or another unexpected creation, one thing is certain: the luxury watch world is in for a treat. Stay tuned, and remember, at the end of the day, when it comes to Rolex, expect the unexpected…
