Call From the Sea
In 1992, the Yacht-Master replica series was launched, the first watch designed for navigators and sailors. The partnership between Rolex and the sailing world and sailing events began in the 1950s, and the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master embodies this long history of cooperation. This professional replica watch perfectly combines practical functions with nautical style, suitable for both land and water. The Yacht-Master is easily recognizable thanks to its bidirectional rotating 60-minute graduated bezel, which is made of high-tech ceramic in precious metal or Cerachrom inserts.
Rolex has repeatedly created precedents in the development of ceramic technology. With its superb technology, it has developed an integrated ceramic outer ring and ceramic word ring. These materials are not only scratch-resistant and environmentally friendly; thanks to their chemical composition, this high-tech ceramic is highly resistant to corrosion. After years of intensive research and development, Rolex has developed a set of unique expertise and innovative equipment and production processes, so it can produce ceramic components completely independently.
The new Yacht-Master 42 replica features a bidirectional rotating bezel and a 60-minute graduated bezel in Cerachrom matt black ceramic. The three-dimensional marks and numerals are made by ceramic casting and then polished. The first 15 minutes of the word circle are marked with a minute scale, which makes it easy to read the interval time accurately. The outer ring teeth allow the wearer to easily grip and rotate the outer ring.
