The Rolex Yacht-Master watch is extraordinarily refined. As a classic nautical watch, its excellent performance is beyond doubt. The first Yacht-Master model appeared in 1992, and the Rolex Platinum Steel Oyster Perpetual was displayed at the Baselworld 2012 exhibition. The Yacht-Master has developed the latest technology in terms of ergonomics, wearing comfort, and reliability and has enhanced the strap, buckle, and bezel performance.
The new Yacht-Master nautical watch is made of 18k white gold. It is the first time the Rolex Yacht-Master series uses this precious metal. The sturdy and reliable case can protect the watch from water resistance to 100 meters. The middle case is made of a solid piece of solid material. Cast in 18ct white gold polished and finished, the patient and lugs reflect an elegant luster, making the Oyster case more prominent and attractive.
The watch is equipped with a matte black Cerachrom ceramic outer ring, a one-piece ceramic outer ring. This design is not only corrosion-resistant and scratch-resistant but also does not fade even when exposed to ultraviolet rays. The three-dimensional numerals and scales are made by ceramic casting. The first 15 minutes of the circle are marked with a minute scale for more precise timing. This state-of-the-art technology has developed a unique set of expertise, innovative high-tech equipment, and production processes after years of painstaking research and development so that ceramic components can produce independently.
The side crown has Rolex’s patented triple-lock triple waterproof system, which is firmly screwed to the case. The crown shoulder is integrated into the middle compartment to protect the winding crown. The sapphire crystal has an iconic small convex lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the calendar. Black lacquered dial, Chromalight luminous material ensures clear reading. The extra-large hands and hour markers are coated with bright fabrics, and a fast-paced instantaneous calendar is set up at 3 o’clock to enhance the practicality of the watch.
The watch is equipped with an Oysterflex strap, which is light and flexible. The inner lining is made of flexible titanium-nickel alloy and is covered with high-performance black rubber injection molding, which is not easy to affect in various environmental conditions. It is equipped with an 18ct white gold folding Oysterlock safety clasp. It once became the watch of choice for water sports and even sailing out to sea.
The Yacht-Master combines extraordinary style and performance for every occasion at sea or on board. With its water resistance and sturdiness, the new Yacht-Master nautical watch is made of 18k white gold. It is the first time the Rolex Yacht-Master series has used this precious metal. The sturdy and reliable case can guarantee the watch’s water resistance to 100 meters. The middle compartment is cast from a solid 18ct white gold, polished and finished, and the case and lugs reflect an elegant luster on both sides, making the Oyster case’s outline more prominent and attractive.
