The Rolex Yachtmaster Watch
- Name: Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master
- Range: Yacht-Master
- Short name: Yacht-Master 42
With a 42mm face a full swivel bidirectional bezel, this is a sailing watch that looks great on land. It has a matt black ceramic face set in 18ct white gold. As a Perpetual, it is self-winding, of course, as part of the Oyster range, it is also 100% waterproof. It is also equipped, as all Rolex professional watches are, with a chroma light display to make it easy to read. It comes with a day date dial a 60-minute readout on the bezel.
The Yacht-Master 42 comes with the perpetual calibre 3235, which is a movement made exclusively by Rolex, so you can be sure it will still be running in 20 years if when you sell it.
When it comes to watches, Rolex has many popular products to release a new watch is to take a risk, as you would know, they tend to limit the production of their watches, so their value of them always stays high. To manufacture something new is to produce less of another line. That being said, here I think the risk has paid off. The main feature I see with the Yacht-Master 42 is that it is a very good-looking watch. Also given is 18ct gold; it is an excellent investment for those who are aware of how well a Rolex tend to hold its value. To me, it seems more fitting as a black-tie watch would look amazing on the cuff of a black suit.
