THOUGH THE ROLEX NAME is synonymous with technological functions, it can also be daringly playful.
This year, the watchmaker fitted its emblematic nautical watch with multi-colour sapphires, green tsavorites and a triangular diamond at 12 o’clock. Though still boasting an eyeopening waterproofness, precision and reliablity, the Yacht-Master 40’s complete makeover now sees a black gloss finish dial in 18ct Everose gold.
Powered by the calibre 3135, the timepiece offers a power reserve of approximately 48 hours.
New to Rolex’s handsome Cellini collection is the 39mm version in 18ct Everose gold showing the lunar cycle. The white lacquer dial with a blue enamelled disc at 6 o’clock reveals the full moon and the new moon – the former depicted by a meterorite applique and the latter by a silver ring. Moonphase is told via the indicator at 12 o’lock on the subdial as the moons rotate through the lunar cycle; while a centre hand with a crescent moon at its tip sweeps across the date around the circumference of the dial.
A manifestation of Rolex’s elegance and grandeur, the watch is complemented with a brown alligator leather strap with a folding Crownclasp in 18ct Everose gold – a first for a Cellini model.
