Ring Command

System of interaction between the case and movement developed and patented by Rolex for easy selection and adjustment of particular functions via a rotatable bezel and the winding crown. On the Yacht-Master II, it affords access to the programming function of this regatta chronograph’s mechanical countdown. On the Sky-Dweller, it allows easy selection of the functions to set: date, month, local time and reference time.


A term patented by Rolex in 1933, Rolesor refers to the combination of Oystersteel and 18 ct gold in its watches. Featured on Rolex models since the early 1930s, Rolesor is a true Rolex signature as well as a prominent pillar of the Oyster Perpetual collection. It is a harmonious combination of gold that is coveted for its lustre and nobility, and Oystersteel which reinforces strength and reliability.

Rolex Bracelet

The iconic band that comfortably secures a Rolex to the wrist. It comes in distinctive Oyster, Jubilee, Pearlmaster or President styles. Characterised by the solid-link construction for uncompromising strength, the patented Easylink system effortlessly extends the length for added comfort to achieve the perfect balance between elegance, function and reliability.

Rolex Glidelock

Bracelet extension system developed and patented by Rolex. Featuring a rack integrated into the clasp, it enables fine-increment adjustment of the bracelet length. The Rolex Glidelock equips the Oyster bracelet fitted on the Submariner, Submariner Date, Sea-Dweller and Rolex Deepsea divers’ watches, either with a fixed rack under the clasp cover or, for the Rolex Deepsea, a lift-up version that allows the bracelet to be adjusted without removing the watch from the wrist. The Yacht-Master 40, Yacht-Master 42 and Sky-Dweller models fitted with an Oysterflex bracelet, are also equipped with the Rolex Glidelock.
