Baselworld 2017: The Watch Of The Open Seas

In 2015 Rolex introduced a new ceramic and 18 ct Everose gold version of its nautical Oyster Perpetal Yacht-Master, fitted exclusively with the innovative Oysterflex bracelet developed and patented by Rolex. This technically advanced bracelet combines the robustness and reliability of a metal bracelet with the flexibility, comfort and aesthetics of a black elastomer strap. At its core lies a superelastic metal blade overmoulded with high performance black elastomer – on the underside is a patented cushioning system for ultimate comfort in wear. 


At Baselworld 2017 Rolex has announced the introduction of a gem-set version of the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40. In 18 ct Everose gold with a black gloss finish dial, it features a bidirectional rotatable bezel adorned with multicolour sapphires, green tsavorites, and a triangular diamond at 12 o’clock. Waterproof, precise and reliable, the Yacht-Master 40 embodies the privileged ties between Rolex and the world of sailing that stretch back to the 1950s. 


Like all Rolex watches, the new Yacht-Master 40 carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015, which ensures singular performance on the wrist.
