Watches In The Wild The Road Through America, Episode 1: A Model Of Mass Production

There is big news, and there is Rolex big news, and in some ways, ne'er the twain shall meet. At Baselworld this year, Rolex debuted a first for the company: the very first, ever, Rolex delivered on a rubber strap. Now, for most companies this would have little effect on watch enthusiasts other than to evoke (very) tepid interest at best, and boredom at worst – but this is not an ordinary rubber strap, this is an official, designed-and-tested-and-thoroughly-obsessed-over-by-Rolex rubber strap. And thereby hangs a tale.

rolex yacht master 40 wrist

The Yachtmaster, as we have mentioned in some of our previous coverage , occupies a somewhat particular place in Rolex’s lineup of sports watches; it shares water-resistance and a turning bezel with the Submariner (the latter is water resistant to 300 m while the Yachtmaster standard model is water resistant to 100 m). It is certainly not a tool watch; the Yachtmaster is offered in either platinum and steel, or gold and steel (that’s Rolesium and Rolesor, lest we forget) and is either quietly or unequivocally luxurious depending on what size and metal you go for (Rolex makes the Yachtmaster in both 35 mm and 40 mm sizes). 

The Yachtmaster’s history goes back to the first introduction of the watch in 1992, although the name, interestingly enough, appears on the dial of a prototype Yachtmaster Chronograph from the late 1960s (a watch so legendary I am actually forced to use the word; one of three known is in the collection of Mr. John Goldberger; we covered it – and a host of other remarkable ultra-rare watches from his collection – in a very memorable episode of Talking Watches ).

The term “Yachtmaster” is also, incidentally, used for a certificate of competency in yachting which is issued by the Royal Yachting Association, although we’re unaware of any specific association between the RYA and the Yachtmaster watch.

Now, this newest version of the Yachtmaster does take a few pages from the existing Yachtmaster playbook: 100-meter water resistance, a bidirectional turning bezel, and a dial and hands that echo the Submariner. There are also a couple of features that may make vintage Sub enthusiasts wonder if Rolex mightn’t have an exceedingly subtle sense of humor; the gilt coronet and “Rolex,” and the red lettering, both features which according to HODINKEE founder Ben Clymer would have, had they appeared on a Rolex dive watch, made it instantly the single most popular watch in the modern Rolex inventory. The case is rose gold – Rolex famously makes their own, called Everose, in their own foundry, with a bit of platinum mixed in to prevent discoloration – and the bezel, rather than being some other precious metal (as is the case in the “standard” Yachtmasters) is in black Cerachrom – a very technical-looking matte black that contrasts sharply with the gold case. Somehow, between the rose gold, the Cerachrom bezel, and the new Oysterflex bracelet this manages to be the most luxurious and at the same time most technical Yachtmaster yet (leaving aside the Yachtmaster II, which we recently reviewed right here , but that is a watch that marches to the beat of a different drummer entirely).

rolex yacht master 40 wrist

The two different versions of the Everose Yachtmaster (40 mm and 37 mm) sport different movements; the larger uses the caliber 3135 and the smaller, the newer 2236, which sports the “Syloxi” silicon balance spring (first used by Rolex in 2014).

rolex yacht master 40 wrist

The Oysterflex bracelet is, in a nutshell, quite a piece of work. One of the most endearing traits of Rolex as a company is that it tends to demonstrate what we can only describe as a laudable degree of corporate obsessive-compulsive disorder when it comes to research and development, and it does so, often, without making any sort of fanfare about it at all. In this case we do know a little bit about the Oysterflex, however – it is basically designed to have the hypoallergenic and comfort properties of a rubber strap and the durability and shape-retention properties of a bracelet. 

At the core of the Oysterflex bracelet are metal inserts made of titanium and nickel, which are used to affix the bracelet to the clasp and watch case; over those is a sheathing of “high-performance black elastomer.” “Elastomer” is a portmanteau word, formed from “elastic” and “polymer” and is a general term for natural and synthetic rubbers. In addition to the materials complexity of the Oysterflex bracelet, it is also shaped in a rather unusual fashion – there are ridges molded into the the wristward face of the bracelet, which are intended to allow the bracelet when worn to better approximate the natural curvature of the wrist.

rolex yacht master 40 wrist

They might look a bit odd but in practice, the design works out quite wonderfully; this is easily the most downright comfortable and organic-feeling rubber strap I have ever worn, and like the entire watch manages to be both extremely technical in feel, and very luxurious at the same time; I doubt whether any company has ever taken so much trouble over the design of a strap (for all that Rolex prefers the term “bracelet” in describing the Oysterflex, habit dies hard and you’ll probably find yourself calling it a strap, just as we did). On the wrist, the two stabilizing ridges do exactly what they are supposed to: keep the watch from shifting, as heavier watches on rubber straps are wont to do, without requiring you to have the strap uncomfortably tight. The Everose Oysterlock clasp does a superb job mechanically and also looks fabulous into the bargain; the quality of finish on the clasp and case may not seem terribly elaborate at first, but it is as technically flawless as anything I have ever seen at any price, on any watch.

rolex yacht master 40 wrist

What we have here, in other words, is a very Rolex interpretation of luxury. Yes, this is a gold watch, and a gold Rolex, and wearing a gold Rolex always carries with it, shall we say, certain semiotic complexities. However there is also another side to the watch, and to the Rolex approach to luxury in general: the taking of such pains to produce technical perfection that technical perfection becomes a luxury in itself.

Owner review: rolex yacht-master 40 126622.

Rolex Yacht-Master 126622

Before we get to my Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126622 review, we need some background. In 1992 Rolex introduced a watch that shared the silhouette of their beloved Submariner but in solid 18k yellow gold, embossed YG bezel insert soldered to the bezel, funky white dial, and the unusual name “Yacht-Master” written where “Submariner” would normally live. People then and now still wonder.. “Why?”.

Rumor has it Rolex wanted to drastically update the Submariner but were scared that the changes were too extreme. The Submariner was essentially their poster child and arguably their most iconic watch. Fearing backlash, they created a whole new line. Rolex rarely creates completely new watches, the last time they made a new watch before the Rolex Yacht-Master was in 1964 when the Daytona was introduced. Luckily it paid off as the Yacht-Master was pretty well received!

Even though the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 at first glance looks very similar to the Submariner it’s a totally different wearing experience. The case shape is completely different from the Sub. Its case profile is composed of compound curves with the lugs swooping downwards very similar to a Daytona, the case is also fully polished. My particular Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126622 being Roleisum (Rolex’s term for the combination of Platinum and Steel which was first introduced in 1999 with the ref. 16622), in combination with the blue sunburst dial and red accents, gives it such a unique aesthetic it sets it apart in Rolex’s catalog. Rolex I think perfected their blue dials, it’s absolutely gorgeous! Pictures do not do it justice whatsoever. In person, it appears much darker, almost black however in direct light that’s when the striking blue hue pops. The date function is also very convenient!

Rolex Yacht-Master

What is it like to wear a Rolex Yacht-Master? I would describe it as the most comfortable and stressful watch I have ever worn and owned. What most people don’t realize is that it’s a thin watch and I mean THIN. At 11.5mm it’s just as thin or even thinner than a 34mm 114200 Air-King! Like what? The case hugs your wrist amazingly while the oyster bracelet seems to caress you. It makes you want to wear it every single day, I mean how could you not? Thin, sporty, beautiful, comfortable and low key a strap monster. Until you see a scratch or nick on the solid Platinum bezel insert, call up Rolex Service Center to see how much it would be to replace it and they slap you in the face with a $2500 (before taxes) quote for JUST the bezel/bezel insert assembly (they’re soldered together remember?). Then you think “Okay, okay which Seiko ’s do I sell to cover the cost of a freaking bezel”. Did I mention the case is fully polished?

Has this ever happened to me? No, because I’m extremely OCD, however I was curious and called RSC, I also used to own the 16622 and was trained to wear long sleeves only, only wear it sparingly, cover my wrist when walking through doorways, never let it touch denim (yes, denim will scratch it apparently), and for all I know never sneeze near it or even look at it too long because for all I know that could probably scratch it too. To top it all off, of COURSE the bracelet and clasp has Polished Center Links! While I am exaggerating the fragility of the Rolex Yacht-Master, the stress of potentially scuffing it is real.

Rolex Yacht-Master

The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126622 is arguably one of my favorite watches ever made. I never thought I’d ever get to own one. It’s beautiful, ridiculously comfortable, relatively uncommon, however so stressful to wear. I have owned it for almost exactly one year and I personally try to enjoy every second I wear it; I even strap changed it with zero scuffs! I have and I do but my OCD and extreme caution lends itself to be a difficult one to fully appreciate without worry. I’ve debated if this watch was right for me all the time. However, I would recommend this watch to anyone minutely interested. I have no regrets having owned two of them like an insane person, but who in the watch collecting world isn’t insane?

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Ultimate Buying Guide

Rolex Yacht Master 40 Buying Guide

If you could buy a Rolex watch for yourself, which would it be? We guess most people would have a long list. However, most people wouldn’t think to choose the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 – a hidden jewel in the Rolex professional line up in a 40mm stainless steel case.

To take you back in time, Rolex Yacht-Master (YM) was in development for a while. It’s regarded as one of the most demanding watches produced by Rolex and took several years to finish. Its concept was born as early as the mid-1960s, but it wasn’t until the 1990’s that the model was officially released to the market.

With its updated styling and re-engineered mechanical movements, the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 is a unique watch that straddles style and luxury at a comparatively lower price. Below, we’ll discuss the Rolex Yacht-Master 40, and provide expert tips when buying the watch.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Two-Tone Blue Dial

Rolex Yacht-Master 40: An Ultra-Modern Design

A line up of the Oyster Perpetual family, Rolex Yacht master 40 collection is a series of watches with a unique design built to withstand the elements. It was originally designed for diving enthusiasts but is refined enough to fit the daily wearer.

The Yacht-Master 40 was first introduced in the 90s. Since then, it has undergone several upgrades. One of the first products of the YM line is the ref. 16628 in 18k yellow gold. In 1999, amidst the Y2K bug, the brand introduced another line in caliber 3135 movement – the ref. 16622. Instead of an 18k yellow gold, the watch boasts stainless steel material with a platinum bezel. Back then, the watch model was touted as the “celebrity favorite” as Phil Collins, Bruce Willis, and other personalities were spotted wearing it.

Fast forward to 2012, the ref. 116622 was born. It still had the platinum dial but with some distinctive configuration, such as the shimmering effect and a glittering finish. Finally, the 126622 joined the Rolex catalog in 2019. The best thing about this watch is that it offers an Oysterflex bracelet option that allows for increased flexibility without sacrificing comfort or style.

With its evolution, the Rolex Yacht Master 40 is a stunning watch with an elegant and stylish design, perfect for any occasion. Above all, it has all of the features you would expect from a luxury watch brand like Rolex:

  • The 40 mm Oyster case exemplifies solid craftsmanship and elegance.
  • It comes with a sapphire crystal that protects its face from scratches.
  • The model also features an automatic movement with a date display at 3 o’clock on the dial.
  • The bezel is made of ceramic and titanium, which makes it incredibly strong and durable.
  • Rolex Yacht-Master 40 watch comes with an Oyster Steel bracelet that is resistant to rust and corrosion.
  • With a folding Oysterlock safety clasp, you can easily put on or remove it without worrying about it falling off.
  • As the name implies, this watch is popular with yachtsmen because it has high water resistance and a rotating bezel.

Reasons To Buy a Rolex Yacht-Master 40

As a successful person, we know you’ll choose to grab a Rolex – specifically a YM 40 model due to its bolder look. Beyond that, there are several reasons to buy a YM 40 watch.

Signifies Status & Success

The Rolex Yacht Master 40 is a watch that says quite a bit about its wearer. Whenever you have it on your wrist, it simply shouts, “You’ve made it!” Created to stand the test of time, it represents the pinnacle of exquisite watchmaking. It’s an icon of success, power, and prestige.

No matter what you do or where you go, this watch will serve as a reminder of your accomplishments. You worked hard to get where you are. It’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor by treating yourself to one of the Yacht-Master 40 series.

Functionality

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 has always been the symbol of precision and excellent performance, thanks to its Chronograph movement. With its sleek lines, accurate timekeeping, and blistering performance, the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 is a tool watch built to last. You can trust that it keeps up with your relentless pace. It’s no wonder that this beautifully-crafted timepiece has been a favorite of professionals, businessmen, and sailors for years.

Investment Potential

Due to the brand’s longstanding history and notable name, Rolex watches are currently worth a significant amount on the vintage market, making buying a used model or original model watch a sound investment. Also, due to their high price tag, they hold value whenever you want to resell them in the future.

What To Look For When Buying a Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Watch

The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 is essentially a luxury yacht on your wrist. It’s bold, powerful, and gives you the feeling of freedom. However, there are a few things that you need to know before you purchase this hefty piece. If you take the time to check out these few tips, it will make it much easier for you to get one of these watches and enjoy the lifestyle that comes with it.

Examine the Condition of the Watch

Like most things in life, the condition affects the value of a Rolex watch. It’s especially important if you’re looking to purchase a pre-owned Rolex Yacht-Master 40. Mostly, you’ll look for one in excellent condition and priced below the high end of reasonable. However, these watches are rare and are almost impossible to find.

Nevertheless, when you buy, thoroughly check the condition of the watch, such as:

  • The bezel, crystal, or bracelet should be free from deep scratches.
  • There should be no stains, marks, or corrosion on the dial and markers.
  • The links in the bracelet should be snug and not loose or stretched out.

Additionally, watch boxes and maintenance documentation come with new YM 40 watches. However, if a pre-owned watch doesn’t have paperwork that comes with it, the only way to ensure authenticity is to be very knowledgeable about the model. In addition, reputable sources like Bob’s Watches offer at least a year’s warranty.

Be Alert on Spotting Fakes

Yacht-Master 40 (or Rolex watches, in general) are a good business due to their quality and price. That’s why many people get the opportunity to sell imitations to make money.

With that in mind, here are tips on what to look for when trying to spot the real deal:

  • The watch’s weight speaks of the quality materials used to create it. Thus, if it’s a light one, it means they’re made of low-quality materials.
  • The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 is remarkable, so its second-hand movement is smooth and not choppy.
  • It has a completely clear and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. A watch with a tinted or chipped crystal is probably fake.
  • Genuine YM 40 watches are made of precious metals. They feature a variety of different styles, but they all have a silky-smooth finish to them. Fakes have a dull look.
  • The luminous markers should be visible in the dark, and the dial should be free of scratches or imperfections.
  • Ensure that the bezel is moving smoothly without catching or clicking.

Moreover, do your research and employ all the tactics you can to ensure you’re getting a genuine product. Any trace of imperfection that isn’t normal wear and tear should make you question the authenticity of the piece.

Shop from a Certified Seller

To save yourself from dealing with fake YM 40, always buy from a certified dealer. They are typically well-established businesses that have been selling fine timepieces for decades. They should be registered with their local government and have the proper tax paperwork available upon request.

A reputable watch dealer will have a professional staff, carry a large stock of new or pre-owned watches, have a warranty policy, and never be pushy or try to rush you into making a purchase. They should be familiar with the process and will keep you informed every step of the way. If you ever find yourself feeling uncomfortable or uncertain of the seller’s intentions, leave immediately.

How Much Does a Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Cost?

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 watches are a classic, timeless design that can be worn by anyone. While most people will say it’s pricey, you might be surprised to learn that they’re relatively affordable, especially compared to other Rolex watches. Depending on the model, age, and materials used, you can expect to pay between $5k and $50k for a new or used Rolex Yacht-Master 40.

Shop Our Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Collection

A sporty Rolex watch

Once around the wrist, this watch intrigues. Rolex has used us to specific categories, which design has become a reference. Yet, in this case, “the tester at your service”, although familiar with the Rolex, looses its marks. The play is blurred.

Are we in front of a sporty Rolex watch?

Numerous clues indicate so:

  • a 40 mm diameter, an usual size for Rolex, which is nearly rare nowadays, and suits well my 17,5 cm wrist – Yes
  • a triplock screwed crown protected by the caseband – Yes
  • the 3135 caliber, well-known for its legendary robustness – Yes
  • the sapphire glass, with no anti-reflection coating, with its cyclops, magnifying glass that does not get the approval of everyone, but is dreadfully efficient – Yes
  • the revolving bezel (bidirectional) – Yes
  • the Mercedes hands and the circled markers for a good readability – Yes
  • the comfortable Oysterlock strap (reference 78360), fulfilled links with polished/brushed alternation, a lighter buckle but nevertheless solid – Yes
  • the back totally free of any kinds of writings – Yes
  • Certified Chronometer – Yes

Though, there is something more….

News Rolex Explorer II ref. 226570 (version 2021) – What to think of it? Opinion, Live pics

Watch review rolex daytona white gold 116519ln oysterflex: more iconic than ever, watch review rolex day-date 40 everose gold ref. 228235: don’t wait to be president to buy it, a vintage profile for the rolex yacht-master.

Hence, what is the profile of the case? Something from the Datejust maybe…

A delicate line, with more marked curves and lugs slightly plunging and above all, integrally polished: the famous “Rolex brushed” of the upper part of the lugs is now replaced with a mirror polished.

That’s it: this Yacht-Master benefits a neo-vintage line, rich of unsuspected charms, which subtly makes the difference with the other models of the sports range (and in particular the Submariner).

“Unsual” colors for Rolex watches

Another new element: its light grey dial, enlivened by the red seconds’ hand and the Yacht-Master inscription, also in red (My God! A “Red” could exclaimed a non-used amateur of the brand!), that seems finely glittered and catches the light.

At last, another differencing element: the bezel made of platinum… Nevertheless, it takes up the traditional subdivisions of the Submariner with raised markers and numbers – which exposes it to the scratches of everyday life.

News ralf tech wrx electric original: a superlative toolwatch, a really untypical rolex.

What risks have I taken to put this Rolex around my wrist for you, The Watch Observer’s reader?

It is not a dressy Rolex !

We know the delicate and small diameter Datejust, or in the sports range, some models with noble metals such as gold or gold/steel combined.

No, here, we deal with an untypical model.

Its detractors can devoice:

  • this light grey dial makes the readability less intuitive than with a black dial!
  • or: the bezel with its raised numbers engraved within the mass is little readable
  • or even: there is a “Canada Dry effect” = it looks like a Rolex withouth looking like the model people have in mind…

And they will be right. Let them go back to their first loves : The Yacht-Master is not the Rolex made for them.

What to remember

Finally – and here I stake my all – this Yacht-Master is dedicated to a particular amateur of Rolex: the one that will not be afraid to assume what will be perceived by some purists of the brand as an heresy, but that merely corresponds to another type of Rolex, just a little more confidential… Let’s be a good gambler and recognizes it.

HANDS-ON: Shades of grey – the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 with dark rhodium dial (ref. 116622)

rolex-yacht-master-rhodium-2016-2

This cool, calm and collected new Yacht-Master almost slipped past me. I was too busy falling in love (again) with the gold and chocolate Rolesor Yacht-Master, which was distracting me and dazzling my senses, but then out of the corner of my eye I spotted a flash of almost-iridescent blue, and my curiosity was piqued.

I’m so glad it was, because this steel and platinum Yacht-Master with its dark rhodium dial and blue highlights is an absolute stunner, even though it’s a much more restrained affair than its Everose-embellished siblings (in both Rolesor and Oysterflex variants). This is partly down to the dark dial, but it’s also the bi-directional platinum bezel, which might sound weird given the material, but with a predominantly sand-blasted finish, it’s actually far less in-your-face than ceramic. Not that it’s plain, by any stretch. The shimmering dial, polished bezel elements and centre bracelet links mean it pops where it counts, and the overall effect of metallic grey on metallic grey adds up to a truly luxurious watch on the wrist.

Then there’s the blue. It’s funny how that single line of text and sweeping second hand – a comparatively small amount of real estate – can have such massive impact on the general feel of the watch. This bright slash of colour adds energy to the Yacht-Master, once again proving Rolex’s mastery of the minuscule.

Aside from that, it’s business as usual. You have the 40mm case, rated to 100m, robust 3135 calibre, with 49 hours of power reserve, and parachrom hairspring, all backed by the Superlative Chronometre standard which guarantees -2/+2 seconds of accuracy per day, after casing.

Rolex has spoiled us for choice this year, with the attention-grabbing Daytona, the youthful Air-King and numerous two-tone options. But if you prefer your Rolex to be more stealth than statement, you can’t go wrong with this excellent new steel and platinum Yacht-Master 40.

History of stary oskol.

In 1300, there was a village called Ugly on the the territory of the present city. Today, it is one of the districts of Stary Oskol. At that time, the village was part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and was a border crossing point on the border with the Golden Horde.

The settlement of Oskol was founded by Russian Tsar Fyodor Ioanovich’s order (Ivan’s the Terrible son) to protect the southern borders of the Russian kingdom in 1593. The bulk of the population were peasants and the military.

In 1617, the town was burned by the Poles. In 1625, 1642 and 1677, the Crimean Tatars approached Stary Oskol, but could not capture it. The town was renamed Stary Oskol (meaning Old Oskol) in 1655, when the town of Tsaryov-Alexeyev, located down the river, was renamed Novy Oskol (New Oskol). Fortifications of the town existed until the 18th century.

More Historical Facts…

Gradually, Stary Oskol turned into peaceful, commercial and merchant town - the center of an agricultural district. Industrial production was represented mainly by enterprises on processing agricultural products.

In 1780, the town got its coat of arms. In 1784, Stary Oskol like most Russian towns of that time was rebuilt according to a new plan signed by Empress Catherine II. A large number of brick houses were built, mostly two-story buildings. The historic center of Stary Oskol has been preserved to our time.

In the second half of the 19th century, the town had a wide network of schools, libraries, reading rooms, printing, secondary schools. In 1894, construction of the railway began, trade and industry began to develop rapidly.

Until the 1930s, there were eleven Orthodox churches in Stary Oskol. During the Second World War, Stary Oskol was occupied by the Germans from July 2, 1942 to February 5, 1943. In 1954, the city became part of the newly formed Belgorod region.

In the late 1960s - early 1970s, in connection with the active development of the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly (the most powerful iron ore basin in the world), Stary Oskol became a major center of iron and steel industry.

Stary Oskol was declared a city of three top-priority Komsomol construction projects. The largest enterprises: Lebedinsky Mining and Processing Plant, Stoilensky Mining and Processing Plant, Oskolsky Electrometallurgical Plant became not only the city-forming enterprises, but also the largest industrial enterprises of the country. Stary Oskol experienced a new birth.

Today, Stary Oskol is a rapidly developing city, one of the leading mining and metallurgical centers of Russia.

Staying on course

The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40 in 18 kt Everose gold with an Oysterflex bracelet.

Diamond-paved dial, optimal brilliance.

Diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds – the noblest and most precious stones are selected to grace Rolex timepieces. The brand has in-house expertise and equipment enabling it to bejewel any model in its catalogue.

Experienced gemmologists first select gemstones of the highest quality. For this, they can rely on their own seasoned judgement as well as state-of-the-art analysis equipment. The stones are then entrusted to the gem-setters, who skilfully place each precious stone onto the watch by hand, one by one, assuring precision to within hundredths of a millimetre. Such stringent tolerances guarantee that each stone shines with optimal brilliance and is perfectly aligned with those around it. These time-honoured gestures, which may be repeated many hundreds of times, ensure that each gem-set watch produced by Rolex sparkles with exceptional intensity and reflects the standard of excellence required by the brand.

Bidirectional Rotatable Bezel

Timing the distance.

The Yacht-Master’s bidirectional rotatable 60-minute graduated bezel is made entirely from precious metals or fitted with a Cerachrom insert in high-tech ceramic. The raised polished numerals and graduations stand out clearly against a matt, sand-blasted background.

This functional bezel – which allows the wearer to calculate, for example, the sailing time between two buoys – is also a key component in the model’s distinctive visual identity.

The Oysterflex Bracelet

Highly resistant and durable.

The Yacht-Master’s new Oysterflex bracelet, developed by Rolex and patented, offers a sporty alternative to metal bracelets. The bracelet attaches to the watch case and the Oysterlock safety clasp by a flexible titanium and nickel alloy metal blade.

The blade is overmoulded with high-performance black elastomer which is particularly resistant to environmental effects, very durable and perfectly inert for the wearer of the watch. For enhanced comfort, the inside of the Oysterflex bracelet is equipped with a patented longitudinal cushion system that stabilizes the watch on the wrist and fitted with an 18 kt Everose gold Oysterlock safety clasp. It also features the Rolex Glidelock extension system, designed by the brand and patented. This inventive toothed mechanism, integrated beneath the clasp, allows fine adjustment of the bracelet length by some 15 mm in increments of approximately 2.5 mm, without the use of tools.

18 kt Everose gold

An exclusive patent

To preserve the beauty of its pink gold watches, Rolex created and patented an exclusive 18 kt pink gold alloy cast in its own foundry: Everose gold.

Introduced in 2005, 18 kt Everose is used on all Rolex Oyster models in pink gold.

It is named after the river on which it stands on; the word stary (old) was added to distinguish it from the new settlement of Novy Oskol (New Oskol).
