Rolex Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster 39

Introduced this year, the new gem-set version of the Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster 39 highlights Rolex’s expertise in gem-setting. Dressed in a 39 mm case in 18 ct Everose gold and adorned with rarest diamonds, this precious watch houses the new-generation calibre 3235, backed by 14 patents, incorporating the Chronergy escapement developed by Rolex. The new Pearlmaster 39 carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015, which ensures singular performance on the wrist.
Renowned for its robustness and elegance, the Oyster case is waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct Everose gold, cast by Rolex in its own foundry. The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. Its screwed down winding crown is fitted with the Twinlock double waterproofness system. The crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of scratchproof sapphire.
The calibre 3235 is a new-generation self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.  A consummate demonstration of Rolex technology, with 14 patents, it offers fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetism, convenience and reliability. It incorporates the new Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. An optimized blue Parachrom hairspring is fitted to the oscillator, the true heart of the watch. Patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, it is also up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. A Rolex ovecoil ensures its regularity in any position. Calibre 3235 is equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor. Thanks to a new barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3235 extends to approximately 70 hours.
With delightfully rounded solid links in 18 ct gold, the Pearlmaster bracelet contributes to the watch’s distinctive character and offers the wearer maximum comfort. It is fitted with a concealed Crown clasp that is both elegant and functional. An alternative version of the bracelet is available with intermediate links in 18 ct white gold sublimely set with diamonds.

The Pearlmaster 39 is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive designation testifies that the watch has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria, which exceed watch-making norms and standards. The certification applies to the fully assembled watch, after casing the movement, guaranteeing superlative performance on the wrist in terms of precision, power reserve, waterproofness and self-winding. The precision of a Rolex Superlative Chronometer after casing is of the order of −2/+2 seconds per day, or more than twice that required of an official chronometer.
The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.
