With the Yacht-Master 40 Everose with Oysterflex strap arguably stealing the show at last year’s Baselworld, luxury fake Rolex UK have taken the opportunity at this year’s event to add an Everose Rolesor gold edition to the collection. Also featuring a chocolate dial, the new Yacht-Master offers a distinctively softer colour scheme than the masculine matte-black dial and bezel of last year’s edition, and you can read more about the latest addition to the Rolex Yacht-Master collection here.
The matte-black Rolex Yacht-Master 40 proved to be a real show-stopper at Baselworld 2015, and the Swiss brand took the opportunity to introduce a new Everose Rolesor gold model to the esteemed collection at this year’s exhibition.
Featuring a chocolate dial and Everose Rolesor case, the new Yacht-Master 40 offers distinctively softer aesthetics than last year’s iteration. The matte-black dial and bezel that took Baselworld 2015 by storm was unashamedly masculine, an accusation that cannot be levelled at the new addition to the Yacht-Master family.
In fact, there is a case to be made that the new 40mm Yacht-Master is one of the few “full-sized” Rolex timepieces that appeals to women as well as men. This idea is reinforced by the introduction of the timeless Oyster bracelet in place of the sporty rubber Oysterflex strap.
The new copy Rolex Yacht-Master 40 sports a bidirectional rotating bezel, with polished raised numerals and graduations that provide a tactile contrast to the sand-blasted surface of the 18kt Everose gold. Once again, the two warm tones of Rolex’s in-house Everose gold help to soften the Yacht-Master’s colour scheme.
The chocolate coloured dial with sun-ray finish is a pleasure to observe, displaying an unchanged date window at 3 o’clock and familiar hands and hour markers. Legibility has been improved with the application of 18kt Everose gold detailing and luminescent Chromalight material.
The Everose Rolesor found in the Oyster bracelet is composed from Rolex’s in-house 904L steel and 18k Everose gold, and the bracelet is finished with an Oysterlock folding safety clasp that add to the timeless aesthetics. The reintroduction of Oyster bracelet may be a response to the fact that the sporty Oysterflex is not for everyone, especially as it is only available in six size options, which would belie the more universal appeal of these high-quality Swiss replica watches.
