Feature: Our top holiday Rolex picks

We all want to look great on our summer vacation—and no holiday outfit is complete without a luxury watch. We’ve picked six of our favourites from Rolex, a brand you can always count on for a tough, practical timepiece that ticks every box for the stylish traveller.


Should you be spending your holidays on dry land but still want a watch with respectable water resistance, try the Yacht-Master. It’s the result of Rolex taking the Submariner and giving it a veneer of glamour via a platinum bezel, which, says Rolex, gives it a “vibrant luminosity”.


The Rolex Submariner is one of the most instantly recognisable timepieces in the world. This trusty dive watch, with its 300-metre water resistance, is an ideal choice for beach holidays, allowing you to enjoy the cool ocean while keeping an eye on the time.

GMT-Master II

The GMT-Master II was introduced in 1983 and is chunkier than the original GMT-Master. Renowned for its iconic dual-coloured bezels, the GMT-Master II is perfect for those who need to keep track of the time at home, as well as the country they’re holidaying in.

Explorer II

The resilient Explorer II is ideal for those who enjoy an active holiday, as opposed to lounging by the pool. Featuring the iconic orange 24-hour hand, and 24-hour bezel, you can rest assured that this dual-time watch is equipped to successfully see you through your latest adventure.

Oyster Perpetual

The Oyster Perpetual is Rolex’s entry-level model, but it’s got kudos as the original self-winding waterproof watch. Coming in a range of dial shades, from yellow to turquoise-blue, as well as understated monochromatic hues, there’s an Oyster Perpetual for everyone this summer.


The Sky-Dweller is one of the Crown’s most complicated models, thanks to its combination of annual calendar, GMT and Ring Command system. Introduced in 2012, this watch is ideal for frequent globetrotters, allowing you to stay on top of your busy lifestyle.
