Legacy Collection




The Ascent is a spinoff of the Genesis but in a slimmer case that was made of brass, which acquires a beautiful patina over time. It was available from 2013 to 2015, through Mk I (2013/14) and Mk II (2014/15).

There were two dial designs, Arabic 12-3-6-9 and "California", and in various colors. The California dial comprises Roman and Arabic numerals and got its name supposedly from a California-based company that refurbished Rolex Bubblebacks with these dials in the past, when those were the rage. Some had dot minute markers, a nod to an elusive prototype from the '50s and a design that has now become Gruppo Gamma's signature.
