This month we really are on a roll of bringing you some of the most special and more obscure from the universe of Rolex watches. These models, the Platinum Daytona, the Datejust 31 with its diamond-set bezel and the piece we are discussing today, the Yacht-Master 37 in Rolesium are references that take a trained eye to spot – and yet are an easy treat to appreciate.
The Yacht-Master in Rolesium is absolutely worthy of consideration for a variety of reasons for both men and women alike. Specifically, the special and versatile nature of the Yacht-Master 37 stems from its size, color scheme and genuinely unique combination of materials.
At 37 millimeters wide, the Yacht-Master 37 fits neatly into the new-found trend among luxury timepieces, as they have have set off on their way back to more compact sizes.
Smaller watches, generally speaking, are often more comfortable over extended periods of wear and they display neat proportions on their exteriors.
Regardless their size, all Rolex timepieces have been painstakingly engineered for ultimate wearing comfort – achieved through the design of their cases, bracelets, straps, clasps, weight distribution and the integration of these elements, so a smaller sized Rolex watch will only deliver these aforementioned benefits by being a more tailored match to those with a narrower wrist – ladies and gentlemen alike.
As such, the Yacht-Master 37 wraps comfortably around the wrist without losing anything at all from its presence. In fact, its Rolesium exterior with a dash of blue make it unique among Rolex Professional watches. Rolesor will be familiar to many as the combination of Oystersteel and 18ct gold. But Rolesium, being exclusive to the Yacht-Master, is that much more rarely seen.
Rolesium refers to the combination of an Oystersteel exterior matched to a solid Pt950 platinum bezel. Adding the luster and inimitable sheen of platinum, the Rolesium Oyster case and bracelet of the Yacht-Master line truly is like no other.
The bezel features raised, polished numerals against a matt, sand-blasted background – all crafted from platinum, the precious metal quite simply the most difficult to be machined and decorated on this level in fine watchmaking. The bezel rotates in both directions, clockwise as well as counterclockwise, unlike the bezel on dive watches like the Submariner or Sea-Dweller. With the collection's strong ties and dedication to sailing, this bidirectional bezel allows the wearer to quickly adjust the bezel to the momentary position of the minute hand and promptly begin the timing of a time period up to 60 minutes long, like when sailing between two buoys, for example. This is done by reading the graduation on the bezel that the minute hand points at the end of the timing period after it had been aligned with the zero position at the beginning of the timing.
The Oyster case with its monobloc Oystersteel center section is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters and is matched to three-link Oyster bracelet that features an Oysterlock safety clasp with an Easylink 5mm comfort extension link for enhanced comfort. The dial's elements, the 18ct white gold hands and indices light up in the dark thanks to the highly legible Chromalight luminescent display.
Powered by the Rolex Caliber 2236, the Yacht-Master 37 is a Superlative Chronometer that boasts an outstanding daily accuracy within -2/+2 seconds and comes with a 5-year international warranty.
