At this year's Baselworld, Rolex introduced a new black and 18 ct Everose gold version of its nautical Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master, fitted with the innovative Oysterflext bracelet developed and patented by the watchmaker itself. This technical bracelet combines in a singular way the robustness and reliability of a metal bracelet with the flexibility, comfort and aesthetics of an elastomer strap. At its core lies a superelastic metal blade overmoulded with high performance black elastomer.
This new Yacht-Master is offered in two sizes: 40 mm and a new 37 mm diameter. Its Oyster case in 18 ct Everose gold includes a rotatable bezel fitted with a new Cerachrom insert in black ceramic with polished raised numerals on a matt background. This finish underscores the similar contrast between the polished 18 ct Everose gold watch case and the matt black of the Oysterflex bracelet, dial and Cerachrom insert.
