Dressed in an 18 ct Everose gold case with a black gloss finish dial, the new gem set version of Rolex’s emblematic nautical watch Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40 features a bidirectional rotatable bezel adorned with multicolour sapphires, green tsavorites, and a triangular diamond at 12 o’clock. Waterproof, precise and reliable, the Yacht-Master 40 embodies the privileged ties between Rolex and the world of sailing that stretch back to the 1950s. This version is equipped with the innovative, elastomer Oysterﬂex bracelet developed and patented by Rolex. Like all Rolex watches, the new Yacht-Master 40 carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015.
Chronometer after casing is of the order of −2/+2 seconds per day, or more than twice that required of an official chronometer.
