A new sailing watch collection leads the seven-strong Rolex contingent on show at BaselWorld 2019.
This year, a new model joins the Rolex Yacht-Master range of sailing watches: the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42. The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller is introduced in a yellow Rolesor version, while the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II in Oystersteel with a Cerachrom bezel insert in blue and black ceramic is fitted with a Jubilee bracelet. The Day-Date 36 is presented with novel dials, in particular those in decorative stone. The Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 and the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 in yellow, white or Everose Rolesor versions are proposed with new, refined dials.
See all the new models below:
Apart from a bidirectional rotatable bezel and a 60-minute graduated Cerachrom bezel insert in matt black ceramic, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 guarantees a power reserve of around 70 hours, thanks to Rolex’s Chronergy escapement, developed and patented in-house.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller Yellow Rolesor
Rolex is adding a Rolesor version (a combination of Oystersteel and 18ct yellow gold) to the Sea-Dweller range, thereby bringing 18ct yellow gold to the collection. The watch’s “Sea-Dweller” inscription on the dial is in yellow, mirroring the 18ct yellow gold of the unidirectional rotatable bezel. The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller is also equipped with a new-generation calibre 3235.
The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona also gets a facelift with a paved and elaborate dial, and shimmers in champagne-colour, intertwined with diamonds and black lacquer. At a heightened calibre of 4130, its power reserve lasts around 72 hours.
The new variants of Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 scream corporate elegance in white Rolesor versions (combining Oystersteel and 18ct white gold), and feature a choice of a black sunray finish dial or a dial in white, mother-of-pearl accompanied by 10 diamond hour markers.
