Rolex is without a doubt one of the most recognizable names of iconic timepieces. The collections from Rolex are all exquisite examples of the watchmaker's art. They are worn by celebrities and captains of industry as well as those who have an interest in fine craftsmanship. Rolex produces some of the world's best wristwatches in the world - and some have achieved legendary status, for instance, the Submariner, the Rolex Sea-Dweller. The iconic Rolex lineup was joined by the Rolex Yacht-Master series in 1992 and has undergone several aesthetic and technical changes since its launch in the early 1990s.
In 2018 Rolex released a new addition to the Yacht master lineup. This watch was the Rolex Yacht-Master, including a model in Rose Gold, and a black dial version with a rainbow Bezel. This timepiece deviates significantly from the standard Rolex aesthetic which is quietly understated even in models that feature platinum or a variety of gold exterior highlights. However, it still has that impeccable engineering that characterizes all Rolex models.
The exterior is extremely striking. The 40mm 18 karat Rose Gold 'Oyster style' watch features a 60-minute graduated bezel that is encrusted with a rainbow array of diamonds, making it perfect for display at social occasions where it is bound to draw comments.
However, that under-the-skin engineering excellence that is so much a part of what sets Rolex apart from other luxury watch brands is still evident.
It features the tried and tested 2236 caliber automatic movement which has a power reserve of 55 hours. The Oysterflex 'rubber' bracelet is fastened with an Oysterlock safety clasp for a functional, yet minimalist appearance that in no way detracts from the striking nature of the watch itself.
It is waterproof to 10 atmospheres and the black dial which lacks numerals makes the watch an instant classic - immediately recognizable as the product of one of the most luxurious watch brands in the world.
