As the saying goes, nothing is permanent in this world. Similarly, the time has come to bid farewell to rolex models too. Sometimes, its new model has replaced its predecessor, while sometimes, it leaves no traces behind. 

Whenever its new model replaces its existing model, the brand switches from one generation to another so that one can easily fit with the new generation’s caliber and give it a new reference number.

Although there is a huge model upgrade, the brand has discontinued its various options. Rolex is believed to have discontinued watches out of the blue even if they had no watch for changing or replacing the existing models.
