The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 is an extraordinary watch, and together with the other watches in the Yacht-Master series, it perfectly reflects the indissoluble bond between Rolex and the maritime industry.
A watch for sailing long distances
Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42. The Yacht-Master nautical watch is equipped with a two-way rotating three-dimensional 60-minute scale outer ring, which is easy to identify. The Yacht-Master 42 features a matt black Cerachrom ceramic bezel that perfectly matches the black lacquered dial. Made of 18ct white gold, this precious metal has been used in the Yacht-Master series for the first time. The elegant luster reflects off the sides of the case and lugs, making the outline of the Oyster case more prominent and adding to its charm.
Like all Rolex professional watches, the Yacht-Master’s unique Chromalight luminous display ensures clear reading no matter the environmental conditions, even in the dark.
Equipped with caliber 3235, a leading watchmaking technology, it is the first time a Yacht-Master is provided with this movement.
Like all Rolex watches, the Yacht-Master 42 has received the Superlative Chronometer certification, ensuring the watch performs exceptionally well when worn.
Rolex has repeatedly set new precedents in the development of ceramic technology. With its cutting-edge technology, it has developed an integrated ceramic outer ring and ceramic bezel. This innovative material is not only corrosion-resistant and scratch-resistant but does not fade even when exposed to ultraviolet rays. After years of research and development, the brand has developed a unique set of professional knowledge and innovative high-tech equipment and production processes to produce ceramic components independently.

The Yacht-Master 42 has a bi-directional rotating outer ring and a matte black Cerachrom 60-minute scale ceramic bezel. The first 15 minutes of the bezel are marked with a minute scale, allowing for more precise timing.
Oyster case symbol of water resistance
The Yacht-Master 42’s Oyster case is guaranteed water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet) and is a model of robustness and reliability. The winding crown is equipped with Rolex’s patented three-buckle triple waterproof system, which is firmly screwed to the case. The crown guard is integrated into the middle case to protect the winding crown. The mirror surface is made of blue crystal and is not easily scratched. The waterproof Oyster case of the Yacht-Master 42 provides the best protection for high-precision movement.
Perpetual movement caliber 3235
The Yacht-Master 42 is equipped with caliber 3235, a new generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. The self-winding movement equipped with it has obtained several patents, fully embodying Rolex’s innovative technology and top watchmaking craftsmanship. It has improved its precision and reliability, power reserve, anti-shock and anti-magnetic, and ease of use—the highest good.
Caliber 3235 is equipped with Rolex’s patented Chronergy escapement system.
Caliber 3235 has a perpetual motion automatic winding component wound by an endless oscillating weight. The barrel’s structure and the escapement’s excellent efficiency increase the power reserve of the 3235 movement to approximately 70 hours. The Yacht-Master watch is equipped with this movement for the first time. Swiss replica website.
Superior Chronometer Certification
Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 has received the Superlative Chronometer certification established by Rolex in 2015.
The green seal, a symbol of superior chronometer precision, is included with every Rolex watch and has a five-year global guarantee.
Oysterflex strap and Oyster safety clasp
The innovative watch strap developed and patented by Rolex is lined with a flexible titanium-nickel alloy sheet and 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 vertical cushion for more comfort.
The Oysterflex strap with the watch is fitted with an 18ct white gold folding Oyster safety buckle designed and patented by Rolex to prevent the buckle from opening accidentally. The strap also features the Rolex Glidelock extension system designed and patented by Rolex. This innovative rack system, hidden under the buckle cover, requires no tools and gradually extends at intervals of approximately 2.5 mm per grid up to a maximum length of about 15 mm.
