Rolex may have another CEO , it’s not implying that things are going to radically change for the old house. The ‘Crown’ is known for simply refreshing and improving the assortments rather than altogether evolving them. For Baselworld 2015, you won’t be astounded to see that the formula had been kept. Be that as it may, one of the works of art is getting a significant update. Here is the new version of the Rolex Yacht-Master now in Everose gold, with an artistic bezel and with a rubber strap.
The Rolex Yacht-Master was one of the few Rolexes that wasn’t updated. The remainder of the assortment – Submariner , Explorer II, Milgauss or Sea-Dweller – had gotten, in any event, a little update or a more important change. Nonetheless, every one of them are keeping a similar base and weren’t a totall recharging of the current models. The formula for this new Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 is the very same: keeping similar bases and adding the new advances – and another significant (in any event for Rolex) novelty.
The first thing that had been refreshed on this Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 is the 40mm case, that presently comes in 18K rose gold (or Everose as Rolex likes to call its own composite). Beforehand accessible just in hardened steel (with a platinum bezel) with both a silver or a blue dial, the Rolex Yacht-Master currently goes to valuable metal. The case anyway isn’t absolutely the equivalent than in the impeccable releases. The case groups are slimmer and the carries are more bended, to all the more likely fit the wrist. Obviously, the commonly Rolex fluted caseback is still here and is likewise executed in 18k rose gold. Water obstruction is still at 100m.
The face of the watch is additionally refreshed with new materials and tones. As you’ve presumably saw, the bezel keeps its raised numerals and its 60-minute scale however it presently comes in black Cerachrom (Rolex own ceramic), with numbers and graduations cleaned on the top while the foundation stays matt, to permit a decent difference. The dial likewise shares this equivalent profound dark tone and comes with gold applied records loaded up with white iridescent material. The rest, from the gem (with no antireflective covering), to the cyclops or the Mercedes hands, stays as before as the tempered steel version. The equivalent goes for the development as the Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 actually sports the type 3135, a hearty, in-house programmed development with date and chronometer appraised (by COSC).
The enormous oddity is anyway in the tie. Interestingly, Rolex comes with a Rubber lash. That may be something very irregular for the vast majority of the brands however for Rolex authorities, this is enormous. This dark Oysterflex arm band is made in a very delicate and adaptable rubber. Because of longitudinal pad framework that balances out the watch (two delicate rubber groups on the inside piece of the lash), it feels very comfortable on the wrist, making the Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 a genuine joy on the wrist. This Oysterflex arm band is fitted on a 18k Everose gold Oysterlock clasp.
However, don’t envision having this tie on another of your Rolex, as the connection is explicit to this new version of the Yacht-Master and won’t fit some other watch.
These Baselworld 2015 additions to the Rolex Yacht-Master are carrying some genuine great outside air to a watch that used to be in the shadow of the Submariner. Without being a fiend of gold watches, we need to concede that the differentiation between the rose gold and the dark accents – dial, bezel and lash – is charming and not very flashy. This new Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 will be estimated at 18.200 Euros (Ex. taxes).
