Rolex Yacht-Master has made minor repairs and changes in recent years. For example, in 2015, the Oysterflex rubber strap was introduced for the first time, and in 2016, it was a new attempt with half-gold with a chocolate-colored faceplate. The watch is still evolving in 2017. This time Rolex introduced the element of gem setting-previously in different brands under the brand such as Daytona or GMT-Master II, there have been designs with gems set on the bezel. However, it was a little unexpected. This is still an unknown area in the Yacht-Master series. Therefore, in ’17, the brand launched a new work of bezel-encrusted colorful treasures. As soon as it debuted, it attracted market attention with its eye-catching appearance.
Feature one: the acceptance of rubber straps has improved
The Yacht-Master 40 uses an eternal rose gold case with an Oysterflex strap, which looks like a 2015 version. When mentioning this Rolex’s exclusive rubber band, it is characterized by the elastic metal sheet covering the rubber inside, so it can strengthen the watch. With strength and durability, and after two years of hardening, the market has also questioned Rolex watches with rubber straps from the beginning to the higher and higher acceptance. Under the premise of showing the same sporting character, we have stepped out of the original Only the fixed pattern of the metal chain.
For the first time, Yacht-Master uses a gem setting process. Rolex logically arranges the colored stones according to a certain color order, orderly and colorfully presenting a sense of gorgeousness never before seen in the series.
Feature two: gem setting is also a sign of labor
The original Yacht-Master’s two-way rotating bezel faintly has the dive watch’s chronograph function, but compared to the more professional diving watch series, the Yacht-Master is relatively less practical in this regard. The 2017 new model is exactly Make good use of this space to make a fuss. Rolex chose rectangular colored gemstones and turquoise inlays on the bezel one by one (cyclically arranged in the order of red, yellow, blue, orange, and green). It is worth mentioning that the original 12 o’clock direction on the bezel The triangular mark, Rolex specially changed to triangular diamonds to make the bezel not only glorious, but also retain the original practical role, on the other hand, it can also highlight the brand’s advantages in gem processing and setting technology.
The watch is mainly modified for the appearance part. The internal 3135 movement maintains a good reputation and has been certified by Rolex’s top astronomical observatory to ensure that the travel time is maintained at a high level of performance within ± 2 seconds.
Feature 3: Lau’s self-made movement is synonymous with reliability
For the movement part, the watch model is equipped with movement 3135. The movement contains the brand’s patented blue Parachrom hairspring. Compared with ordinary hairsprings, this hairspring advertises a substantial evolution in temperature resistance, magnetic resistance and shock resistance. Of course, the core has also passed the dual insurance checks certified by COSC and Rolex’s top observatory. In addition to the extremely dazzling appearance ‘upgrade’, it has ensured that the Rolex watch has been popular for a long time: accurate and reliable, and the power reserve is satisfactory. 48 hours.
The alloy sheet inside Oysterflex has a memory function. Because the rubber used is extremely soft, this pair of fins allows the strap to fully fit the shape of the wrist, and also improves the durability of the strap.
