Rolex Adds Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 to Sailing Watch Collection
This year a new model, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42, joined the Rolex iconic sailing watch collection.
With a diameter of 42 mm, which is a new size for the Yacht-Master range, it houses the new-generation calibre 3235. Made of 18 ct white gold, the watch is fitted with an Oysterflex bracelet and equipped with an Oysterlock safety clasp, also in 18 ct white gold, that includes the Rolex Glidelock extension system.
The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller makes its first appearance in a yellow Rolesor version, combining Oystersteel and 18 ct yellow gold. The name “Sea-Dweller” on the dial is marked in yellow.
The Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II is presented in Oystersteel, with a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a two-colour 24-hour graduated Cerachrom insert in blue and black ceramic, fitted on a Jubilee bracelet. This watch is driven by the new-generation calibre 3285, launched in 2018. An Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona in 18 ct yellow gold features a paved black lacquer dial. Thirty-six trapeze-cut diamonds are set on the bezel in lieu of the tachymetric scale.
For the first time, the Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 is equipped with calibre 3255, a movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology. In 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold, the new variants of this emblematic model are introduced with dials presenting a concentric gradient, in decorative stone, or entirely diamond-paved with a rainbow of sapphires for the hour markers.
The new Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 and Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 watches in yellow, white or Everose Rolesor versions (combining Oystersteel and 18 ct gold) are all proposed with elegant and refined dials. They are equipped respectively with calibre 3235 and calibre 2236, new-generation movements first introduced on these two models in 2018.
Like all Rolex watches, these new variants carry the brand’s own Superlative Chronometer certification, symbolized by a green seal. This certification guarantees that they satisfy performance criteria which exceed watchmaking norms and standards in terms of precision, waterproofness, self-winding and power reserve. The certification is coupled with an international five-year guarantee. To learn more about Rolex watches, visit www.rolex.com.
