Baselworld only just opened its doors this morning, but journalists, bloggers and attendees are already buzzing over Rolex’s newest reveal: The Yacht-Master, done in 18k Everose gold with a black Cerachrom bezel insert and featuring the brand’s new “Oysterflex” bracelet.
Sporty, sturdy and ergonomic, the Yacht-Master will be available in both 40 mm and 37 mm sizes, with a 3135 self-winding caliber and a 2236 self-winding caliber, respectively.
The watch features the debut of the Oysterflex strap, which according to Rolex, resembles a rubber strap in suppleness and comfort, but “its resistance is comparable to that of a metal bracelet.”
The Oysterflex bracelet attaches to the watchcase and the 18 ct Everose gold Oysterlock clasp by a flexible titanium and nickel alloy metal blade, which is overmoulded with a durable, environmentally-resistant black elastomer. The bracelet features “a patented longitudinal cushion system” to stabilize the watch on the wrist.
