Introducing…The 2017 Festive Selection from Rolex

Tomorrow will mark the first official day of the festive season. A time for giving, spending time with loved ones, and stressing over what presents to buy for your significant other. Well Rolex has ensured its prepared for such tense decision making, and has chosen a selection of attractive and extremely stylish wristwatches they believe to be the perfect gift for your loved ones this Christmas.

The festive selection contains a mixture of intense and warm colours, which are appropriate for this bright and colourful time of year. There are even some stunning timepieces that feature beautiful precious stones like diamonds and rubies, a shimmering reminder of the gorgeous Christmas lights and tinsel that decorate the high streets. The selection consists of 12 very different wristwatches, and we have selected four of our very favourite.
