It’s the story of Rolex and the technicolor dream watch.
The Swiss watchmaker has unveiled a brand-new addition to its Yacht-Master watch collection at this year’s Baselworld, the biggest annual watch trade show in the world.
What makes it so unique? A crown of multi-coloured jewels graces the rotating bezel — 32 sapphires, eight tsavorites, and one diamond, to be exact.
Though gems have graced Yacht-Master bezels before, they have never been on the 40 mm model, and they have never been this vibrant, according to Hodinkee.
The gems are set in a case made from Rolex’s proprietary 18k rose gold alloy called “Everose,” and are paired with an Oysterflex rubber band. It’s undoubtedly a sport watch, and one that will catch the average person’s eye.
Pricing is not available for the piece yet, but we expect the gems to carry a premium over the standard Yacht-Master II 40mm in Everose‘s $US24,950 suggested retail.
