The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 – Baselworld 2019

Sleek and distinguished, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42, like the rest of the Yacht-Master range, celebrates the ties between Rolex and the world of sailing.

Rolex is extending its Yacht-Master range with a new 42 mm model, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42.

Yacht-Master sailing watches are recognizable thanks to their distinctive bidirectional rotatable bezel with a raised 60-minute graduation. The Yacht-Master 42 is fitted with a Cerachrom insert in matt-black ceramic that perfectly complements its black lacquer dial. Created from 18 ct white gold, this new watch heralds the arrival of this precious metal on a Yacht-Master model. The light
reflections on the case sides and lugs highlight the profile of the Oyster case.

Yacht-Master 42
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 gmaterial 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.
