This technical bracelet combines the robustness and reliability of a metal bracelet with the flexibility, comfort and aesthetics of an elastomer strap. At its core is a superelastic metal blade overmoulded with high-performance black elastomer.

The Yacht-Master comes in two sizes: 40mm and the latest 37mm diameter version. Its Oyster case in 18-carat Everose gold includes a rotatable bezel fitted with a new Cerechrom insert in black ceramic with polished raised numerals on a matt background.

The Yacht-Master’s Oysterflex bracelet offers a sporty alternative to metal bracelets without compromising robustness or waterproofness.

The Oyster case is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). The middle case crafted from a solid block of 18-carat Everose gold, cast by Rolex in tis own foundry. The crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire.

Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3135 (40mm) and 2236 (37mm) calibre models are certified Swiss chronometers, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute tests.

In calibre 3135, the oscillator has a blue Parachrom hairspring patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive alloy. Calibre 2236 is fitted with the Rolex-developed Syloxi hairspring in silicon introduced in 2014, which offers exceptional chronometric performance. Insensitive to magnetic interferences, both hairsprings offer great stability in the face of temperature variations and remain up to10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks.
