The watch of the open seas
Rolex is extending its Yacht-Master range with a new 42 mm model, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42. Yacht-Master sailing watches are recognisable thanks to their distinctive bidirectional rotatable bezel with a raised 60-minute graduation. The Yacht-Master 42 is fitted with a Cerachrom insert in matte black ceramic that perfectly complements its black lacquer dial.
Created from 18k white gold, this new watch heralds the arrival of this precious metal on a Yacht-Master model. The light reflections on the sides and lugs highlight the profile of the Oyster case. Like all Rolex Professional watches, the Yacht-Master 42 offers exceptional legibility in all circumstances, and especially in the dark, thanks to its Chromalight display. The broad hands and hour markers are filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting glow.
This new model is equipped with calibre 3235 – at the forefront of watchmaking technology – a first for the Yacht-Master range. Like all Rolex watches, the Yacht-Master 42 carries the Superlative Chronometer certification, which ensures excellent performance on the wrist. The watch is fitted with an Oysterflex bracelet and equipped with an Oysterlock safety clasp, also in 18k white gold, that includes the Rolex Glidelock extension system.
