The regatta timepiece is a stylish celebration of the privileged ties between Rolex and the world of sailing, which stretches back to the late 1950s. International yacht racing began in 1851, and is widely regarded as the cornerstone of any sport that champions competition and camaraderie, rooted in heritage and tradition.
The Yacht-Master also embodies a winning combination of style and function. Sporty yet distinguished, it makes for a fitting accessory that will take you from a day on-the-go to an evening at a yacht club lounge.
At a glance, the watch may seem distinctively masculine, but its classic aesthetics will lend even the most slender of wrists a little bit of flair. The new Oysterflex bracelet, developed and patented by Rolex, comprises a flexible titanium and nickel alloy metal blade at its core, overmoulded with a high-performance elastomer strap. This unique technology promises durability, reliability and enhanced comfort, while furnishing the ubiquitous number an elegant feel.
Revered for its functional characteristic, the Yacht-Master 37 is equipped with calibre 2236, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex which has passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests, ensuring peerless precision and reliability.
On top of the incredible Rolex-patented technologies comprised of this timepiece is a bezel with highly-polished raised numerals and graduations, which stand out clearly against a matte background; highly legible Chromalight appliques with long-lasting luminescence on its hour markers; and waterproofness to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet).
