The rolex oyster perpetual yacht master 40 replica chocolate dial version has a bezel and center bracelet links made of 18k everose gold, but the crown, middle case and outer bracelet are made of 904L steel. But, with so many mesmerizing timepieces unveiled at once during a mega horology fest, a few were bound to be overlooked. But, today we’ve token the time to take a better look at how well these materials and dial colors combined. The newest incarnation of the “Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40” an iconic nautical watch, differs from previous editions for being the first one to be made of “Everose Rolesor”, which is the combination of 904L steel and 18k everose gold. But, it’s also available in Rolesium, which is a combination of 904L steel and platinum.
Hands on this timepiece are standard rolex yacht master 40 replica pieces. And both the hour markers and hands possess a highly legible Chromalight similar to the one that debuted on the “Rolex Explorer” (Ref#: 214270), at Baselworld 2016. There is also a date aperture with a cyclops lens at the 3 o’clock position.Another pleasant novelty on this luxury sports watch by Rolex are the three color variations available for this dial: chocolate, blue and dark rhodium. Hours are established with round hour index markers, except for the 12 o’clock positon which has a triangle form and the traditional stick marker at 6 o’clock.
The fluted caseback is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The winding crown is fitted with a Triplock triple waterproofness system and covered by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case. As it screws down it resembles and provides the watertight security of a submarine’s hatch. These details enforce that water-resistance on this watch can reach up to 100m (330 feet).
So, this round 40mm case can be obtained in two different mixtures of two metals. While the blue and dark rhodium dial versions have a bezel and center links made of platinum and the rest of its elements are in stainless-steel. They all have a rotating bezel with polished raised numerals and a sand-blasted surface. Rolex Yacht-Master Replica was unveiled at Baselworld 2016, amongst other novelties such as, the new “Rolex Air-King” or the new Rolex Datejust 41 and Daytona with a Ceramic Bezel, that we covered at the time.
