With the Rolex novelties presentation now online as a part of the Watches and Wonders digital platform, the thought was, might the website crash?

This year, the is-it-on or is-it-not-on Baselworld (the show was cancelled and has since been transformed) coupled with the pandemic delayed the release of the Rolex novelties for 2020.

Five laureates are honoured by the 2019 Rolex Awards for Enterprise in the fields of science and health, cultural heritage, applied technology, exploration, and environment. Including one Canadian who is changing the landscape of plastic recycling.
