Get Your Year Of The Tiger Off To A Great Start With These Rolex Watches
Annual resolutions may change due to lifestyle and life stages but one cannot help but agree: It’s important to take stock of the important things in life and be appreciative of the good things that have come your way over the past year. As we welcome the Year of the Tiger, let’s kick off the next lunar year with new objectives and renewed hopes – not forgetting a huge dose of optimism. A Rolex timepiece to mark the new lunar year is always a good idea too. Here are our four recommendations. Happy Chinese New Year!
Oyster Perpetual Air-King
An homage to aviation, the Air-King stands out because of its distinctive black dial. On it are large 3, 6 and 9 numerals marking the hours as well as a minute scale, a combination that aids legibility. In addition, the name Air-King is placed above the “Superlative Chronometer” inscription in the same lettering that was designed especially for the model in the 1950s. A handsome yet pared-back watch, the Air-King is for those who want versatility in their horological partner.

The sunray finish on the dial of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 creates beautiful, delicate light reflections that change depending on the position of the wrist.
Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31
For the lady who wants to stand out from the crowd, this white Rolesor version of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 is the perfect choice. Rich with heritage, the Datejust has spanned eras while retaining the enduring aesthetic characteristics that make it so instantly recognisable. It is also not just a pretty face – its Oyster bracelet exudes sporty elegance, making the watch suitable for daily wear. Made of virtually scratchproof sapphire, the crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock, enhances the legibility of the date window and is also a distinctive and historical feature of the range. The choice of white Rolesor – a combination of Oystersteel and white gold – already lends the timepiece a sophisticated aesthetic, but the diamonds on the bezel and the VI at 6 o’clock on the aubergine dial further amplify the watch’s style.
Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date
Widely known as a reference among divers’ watches, the Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date is a timepiece with excellent functionality. It reflects the key features of the original while its unidirectional rotatable bezel stands out for its ease of use. Its 60-minute graduation allows divers to accurately monitor their diving time and decompression stops. Furthermore, the bezel, which features a Cerachrom bezel insert in black ceramic, has a knurled edge that provides excellent grip underwater, even when wearing diving gloves. The iconic Cyclops lens on the sapphire crystal magnifies the watch’s date display for easier reading.
Waterproof to a depth of 300 metres (1,000 feet), the Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date is a paragon of watchmaking functionality that sits handsomely on any wrist.
The Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea in Oystersteel comes with a Cerachrom bezel insert in black ceramic, a black dial, large luminescent hour markers and an Oyster bracelet.
Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea
If you are into pushing limits both at work and in life, then you will certainly connect with the philosophy and values of the Rolex Deepsea. After all, this is the timepiece engineered by Rolex for deep-sea exploration, an activity not for the faint-hearted. Like the aforementioned Submariner Date, it features a 60-minute graduated, unidirectional rotatable bezel for divers to precisely monitor their dive and decompression times. But what sets it apart is its Oyster case, which is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 3,900 metres (12,800 feet). Not only is its middle case crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant Oystersteel, its case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool only accessible by certified Rolex watchmakers. Equipped with calibre 3235, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured in-house, it offers outstanding performance in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability. In addition, the 44 mm Oyster case is further reinforced with the patented Ringlock system case architecture to ensure an even higher level of resistance and reliability.
Best of wishes from Kee Hing Hung to clients, readers and watch enthusiasts – to lots of prosperity, fortune, health and happiness in the Year of the Tiger.
