Rolex has announced at Baselworld 2015 that it will introduce the Oyster Yacht-Master. It will be available in two different sizes.
The case, produced in 18-carat Everose gold, will be offered in 37 mm and 40 mm. The bezel is rotatable and fitted with a new Cerachrom insert in black ceramic with polished raised numerals on a matt background.
It will contain an in-house Calibre 3135 mechanical movement, with a frequency of 28,800 beats/hour (4 Hz) and has 31 jewels. It boasts a minimum power reserve of approximately 48 hours.
The Yacht-Master’s new Oysterf lex bracelet is supplied with each timepiece. Though it resembles a rubber strap, it offers resistance and reliability that is comparable to that of a metal bracelet. It is attached to the watch by a flexible titanium and nickel alloy metal blade, it has been confirmed.
The chronometer, which has been officially certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), is water resistant up to a pressure of 11 bar. That’s the equivalent of 100 meters or 330 feet.
Baselworld is held every year in the city of Basel, Switzerland and showcases the latest launches into the world of watches and jewellery. It was previously announced by Rolex, at the same event, that they would be launching the Cellini Time, available this year in four different versions.
