The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 reference 126655 is a stunning timepiece which combines the beauty of the Rolex Everose Gold throughout the 40 mm case, with a black matt, sand-blasted, rotatable bezel, with raised black polished numerals and graduations. The combination of black and pink gold has quickly become a staple for Rolex, as they move to add this exceptionally fine color combination to its collection. The Everose Gold is a patented creation by Rolex and introduced in 2005.
The black coloring is extended to the black dial. This is beautifully offset by the luminescent hour markers surrounded by 18 ct gold to prevent tarnishing. Rolex launched the new Oysterflex bracelet in black, which offers a sporty alternative to metal bracelets. This bracelet continues the coloring of the timepiece and is secured by an 18 ct Everose safety clasp.
The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 reference 126655 is powered by the caliber 3255 which is made of nickel-phosphorus protecting it from magnetic interference. This new-generation movement is developed and manufactured entirely by Rolex and improves upon near perfection with precision, power reserve and resistance to shocks utilizing Paraflex shock absorbers and a Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring. It provides an impressive 70 hours of power reserve and winds bidirectionally with a perpetual rotor.
The reference 126655 is protected by scratch-resistant sapphire, and a triplock triple waterproofness system giving it protection to 330 feet of water depth. The crystal also has the Rolex patented cyclops lens over the date aperture.
