Rolex is introducing the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40, a new version of its signature nautical timepieces adorned, for the first time, in Everose Rolesor (the bezel as well as the centre bracelet links are made of 18 ct Everest gold, watch manufacturer’s exclusive patented pink gold alloy, while the winding crown, the middle case and the outer bracelet links are made of 904L steel) and boasting a chocolate dial. The waterproof timepiece is precise and reliable companion while cruising on a yacht.
The case of Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40 is waterproof to a depth of 330 feet as it’s crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant 904L steel and its uted back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement.
At the heart of the precise and reliable Yacht-Master 40 is calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex and equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor to offer a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. The oscillator features a blue Parachrom hairspring patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive alloy. Insensitive to magnetic fields, the Parachrom hairspring offers great stability in the face of temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. It is equipped with a Rolex overcoil, ensuring its regularity in any position.
The Yacht-Master is fitted with a solid-link Oyster bracelet in 904L steel and 18 ct Everose gold with an Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening. It features the ingenious Rolex-patented Easylink rapid extension system that allows the wearer to easily increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm.
