Rolex has expanded its Yacht‑Master collection by adding a new model, the first with a 42mm diameter: The Oyster Perpetual Yacht‑Master 42. The Yacht-Master nautical watches can immediately be recognized by their bidirectional rotating bezel with a raised 60-minute graduation.

Available in 18K gray gold, this new watch marks the first use of this precious metal on a Yacht-Master model. The light reflections on the sides and lugs highlight the profile of the Oyster case. The Yacht-Master 42 provides exceptional legibility in all situations, especially in the dark, thanks to its Chromalight display, where the broad hands and hour markers are covered with a luminescent material for a long-lasting glow. This example of haute watchmaking is equipped with a 3235 caliber, he cutting edge of today’s technology, and introduced for the first time in the Yacht-Master collection.
