The new version of the Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster 39 in 18 ct Everose gold and adorned with the rarest diamonds shows the highlights of Rolex’s expertise in gem-setting. The Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster 39 combines to perfection the Rolex’s expertise in the art of watchmaking and sophisticated gem-setting of the highest order. This elite watch is also equipped with the new-generation calibre 3235, incorporating the Chronergy escapement developed by Rolex. The new Pearlmaster 39 carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015, which ensures singular performance on the wrist.
The diamonds gracing the Pearlmaster 39 are selected according to rigorous criteria and set in keeping with the finest traditions to ensure the most intense radiance. Rolex has its own gemmology laboratory, where experienced specialists check the quality of the precious stones. The gems are then entrusted to the in-house master gem-setters, experts in the art of exalting the stones’ natural lustre. In addition to the intrinsic quality of the stones, several criteria contribute to the reputation of Rolex gem-setting: the precise alignment of the height of the gems, their orientation and position, the robustness, the regularity and aesthetics of the setting, as well as the finishing of the beads.
The Oyster Case:
The refinement of the Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster 39 merely complements its technical excellence as a Rolex watch. Its Oyster case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of robustness, proportion and elegance. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct Everose gold, cast by Rolex in its own foundry. The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. Fitted with the Twinlock double waterproofness system, the winding crown screws down securely against the case. The crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire. The waterproof case provides optimum protection for the Pearlmaster 39’s high-precision movement.
Perpetual Calibre 3235:
The Pearlmaster 39 is equipped with calibre 3235, a new-generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. This self-winding mechanical movement is at the forefront of watchmaking. A consummate demonstration of Rolex technology, with 14 patents, it offers fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability. It incorporates the new Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. An optimized blue Parachrom hairspring is fitted to the oscillator, the true heart of the watch. Patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, it is also up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. A Rolex ovecoil ensures its regularity in any position. Calibre 3235 is equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor. Thanks to a new barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3235 extends to approximately 70 hours.
With delightfully rounded solid links in 18 ct gold, the Pearlmaster bracelet contributes to the watch’s distinctive character and offers the wearer maximum comfort. It is fitted with a concealed Crownclasp that is both elegant and functional. An alternative version of the bracelet is available with intermediate links in 18 ct white gold sublimely set with diamonds. Echoing the bezel and dial, this superb gem-setting provides the finishing touch to an authentic watchmaking masterpiece.
