Rolex has unveiled an all-new Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 at Baselworld 2019, which now boasts a slightly larger case measuring in at 42mm, compared to the traditional 40mm version. Flaunting a monochromatic theme, the watch is composed of 18-karat white gold with a matte black Cerachrome bezel set against a black dial, while paired alongside an Oysterflex bracelet to match.

Additionally, the bidirectional rotating bezel is detailed with raised graduations and numerals that have been molded into the ceramic then polished, while the entire dial consisting of its hands, indexes and inscriptions are rendered in crisp white, creating a sleek juxtaposition against its black face. However, the hands and hour markers are filled with the luminescent Chromalight material.

Inside, the timepiece is equipped with a calibre 3235 movement, a first for the Yacht-Master model, which is a self-winding mechanical movement that incorporates the brand's new patented Chronergy escapement. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference, ensuring superior efficiency and precise timing, while also boasting approximately 70 hours of power reserve.

The Yacht-Master 42's new Oysterflex bracelet is also a sporty alternative compared to traditional metal bracelets, which features metal blades inside its rubber-like composition, as well as Rolex's Glidelock extension system.

Priced at CHF26,500 or about $26,700, head on over to Rolex's website now for more details and availability.
