Call from the sea
1992 the Yacht-Master series was launched, launching the first watch specially designed for navigators and sailing athletes. The cooperation between Rolex and the maritime industry and sailing events began in the 1950s, and the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master deeply embodies this long history of collaboration. This professional watch perfectly combines practical functions with nautical style and is suitable for wearing on land or in water.
Rolex has repeatedly created a precedent in the development of ceramic technology. With its superb technology, it has developed a one-piece ceramic outer ring and ceramic word circle. These materials are not only scratch-resistant but also resistant to environmental influences, and thanks to their chemical composition, this high-tech ceramic is highly resistant to corrosion.
The Yacht-Master 42 has a bidirectional rotatable bezel with a 60-minute graduated ring in Cerachrom matt black ceramic. The three-dimensional marks and numerals are cast in ceramic and then polished. The first 15 minutes of the word circle are marked with a minute scale, which is convenient for accurate reading of the interval time. The outer ring tooth edge lets the wearer grasp and quickly rotate the outer ring.
Oyster case, a symbol of water resistance
Guaranteed water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet), the 42 mm Oyster case of the Yacht-Master 42 is a paragon of robustness and reliability. Rolex watchmakers use brand-specific special tools to tighten the finely pitted bottom cover to seal the case, so only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement. Crown shoulders are integrated into the middle point to protect the winding crown. The mirror surface is made of anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which is hard to scratch. A small convex lens window at 3 o’clock makes it easy to read the date. The waterproof Oyster case of the watch gives the movement the best protection.
Caliber 3235 Perpetual movement
The self-winding movement equipped with it has obtained several patents, fully embodying Rolex’s innovative and excellent watchmaking technology. It has further improved accuracy and reliability, power reserve, shock resistance, anti-magnetic and convenient use. Perfection.
The 3235 movements are equipped with Rolex’s patented Chronergy escapement system, which is efficient and reliable. This escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus and is not disturbed by magnetic fields. The movement is equipped with Rolex’s patented blue Parachrom hairspring, made of a unique paramagnetic alloy cast by Rolex. The balance spring assembly of the action is fitted with the high-performance Paraflex shock absorber designed and patented by Rolex to improve the shock resistance of the movement.
The 3235-caliber movement has a perpetual automatic winding component, and an endless oscillating weight winds the movement.
Oysterflex strap with Oyster safety clasp
The innovative strap developed and patented by Rolex comprises a curved elastic metal sheet covered with high-performance black rubber injection molding. It is not easily affected by various environmental conditions and is durable. The back of the Oysterflex strap has a longitudinal cushion for extra comfort.
The Oysterflex strap of the Yacht-Master 42 is equipped with a Rolex-designed and patented 18K gold Oyster safety clasp to prevent the buckle from being accidentally opened. Strap with Rolex Glidelock extension. This innovative rack mechanism, developed and patented by Rolex, is concealed under the buckle cover and allows the fine adjustment of the length of the Oysterflex strap in steps without tools. The RolexGlidelock extensions on the Oysterflex watch strap have six compartments of approximately 2.5 mm each, allowing easy strap length adjustment up to about 15 mm.
Superlative Chronometer Certification
Like all Rolex imitation watches, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 has the Superlative Chronometer certification established by Rolex in 2015. In addition, the movements of these watches are also certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Center (COSC). The look is tested after it is assembled, and the action is installed in the case to ensure that the watch can perform excellently in precision, power reserve, waterproof and automatic winding when worn. The accuracy pursued by Rolex is much higher than the standard of precision timepieces certified by the Swiss Official Observatory.
