THE CALL OF THE SEA
Change in continuity. This is the Rolex watchword with the new models introduced at Baselworld 2019. The Yacht-Master, a professional sailing watch, takes us full steam ahead.
The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master was first launched by Rolex in 1992 with a new model released in 2015. This year, the brand has produced a version with a large case (42mm wide), watertight down to 100m and made from a solid block of grey gold. The new watch, reference number 226659, arrives in a collection that has hitherto featured models between 37 and 40mm wide. There is nothing revolutionary here from an aesthetic point of view. The watch has all the hallmarks of the brand with the iconic crown logo, with a guarantee of optimal readability. The instantly recognisable hands point towards round indices. All the elements on the elegant black lacquered dial are coated with Chromalight, a lume with a long-lasting blue glow. The dial is encircled by a revolving two-directional fluted bezel, which is topped by a disc made of Cerachrom ceramic. The date display is magnified by the trusty Cyclops lens.

The watch is still powered by the calibre 3235, which has been part of the collection since 2016. The self-winding movement comes with a high-efficiency Chronergy escapement, providing a generous power reserve of 70 hours.

The Yacht-Master 42 comes with an Oysterflex strap. Its distinguishing feature? It combines the toughness of steel with the suppleness of elastomer for total comfort. The strap also has a Glidelock clasp, so you can extend it for up to 15mm without using a tool. Like all Rolex watches, it is officially certified as a Superlative Chronometer.
