Innovative Precision


The history between Rolex and the sea dates back a long time. When the constant search for efficiency, but also for breaking the limits of the established, prompted the renowned firm to create a hermetic, precise and reliable wristwatch. This launch appealed to racing pioneers and sailing enthusiasts, and made the innovative Oyster Perpetual a must-have for the sport.

The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II is a one-of-a-kind high precision chronograph. It has a programmable countdown function, equipped with a mechanical and instantly synchronizable memory.

It is also distinguished by its great readability and ease of use in action. The Yacht-Master II was specifically designed for regatta starts, which generally occur in three times marked by different sound and visual signals: the start of the countdown, the preparatory phase and the start of the race. Access to the countdown programming function is through the rotating bezel, thanks to the Ring Command, a system of interaction between non-mechanical elements and movement developed and patented by Rolex. These, among other characteristics, are what made the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Mater II stand out from the rest of the watches and forced a unique and close relationship between both universes.

It is not surprising then that Rolex has decided to expand its Yacht-Master range by proposing a new model with an unprecedented diameter of 42 mm: the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42. Yacht-Master nautical watches are recognizable by their graduated bi-directional rotating bezel. sixty minutes in relief. The Yacht-Master 42 is equipped with a matte black ceramic Cerachrom disc that blends harmoniously with the black lacquered dial. Crafted from 18-karat white gold, the new watch marks the introduction of this precious metal into a Yacht-Master model. The light reflections on the lugs and sides of the case highlight the shape of its Oyster case. In addition, like all Rolex professional watches, the Yacht-Master 42 offers great readability in all circumstances, especially in the dark, thanks to its Chromalight display. On the other hand, its wide hands and large indexes are covered with a long-lasting luminescent material. This new model is equipped with the caliber 3235, at the forefront of watchmaking technology, which is introduced for the first time in a Yacht-Master watch. Another highlight is that the Oyster case of the Yacht-Master 42, an example of robustness and reliability, guarantees a water resistance of up to one hundred meters. And like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 is certified by the Superlative Chronometer named by Rolex workshops.

Elegant and distinguished, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 celebrates, like the rest of the models in the Yacht-Master range, the bonds that unite Rolex with the world of sailing, thus strengthening an unbreakable bond of commitment, guarantee and efficiency between both parties.
