Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42

Larger-sized Rolex sports watches have for long been at the top of the wishlists of many Rolex collectors and enthusiasts.

Rolex had begun catering to their needs with the Sea-Dweller 43, introduced in 2017, and the Explorer II long before that. These were followed by the Yacht-Master 42 in 2019 that, for now, serves as the latest addition to a slowly, but surely growing range of relatively more substantially sized “Rolex Professional” watches — this being the Crown’s official term for its sportier watches.

Designed to support an active lifestyle, yet crafted from precious materials: the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 combines a fascinating selection of materials.

For now, the Yacht-Master 42 is available exclusively in 18kt white gold, matched to a high-performance elastomer strap called Oysterflex, but don’t let that put you off — it would not be unreasonable to expect more variations to come sooner rather than later.

Despite the fact that this single reference cannot be configured in any way, it nevertheless marks a gentle, but confident move — typical for Rolex — towards an ever-expanding selection of luxury sports watches over the famed 40mm size.

On or off the wrist, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42 is noticeably larger than its iconic alternatives such as the Submariner or Explorer I.

Powered by the Manufacture Rolex Caliber 3235 that belongs to the latest generation of Rolex movements, the Yacht-Master 42 impresses with its watchmaking prowess as much as it does with its bold monochromatic aesthetic.
