10 things you need to know about Rolex’s lat­est ladies time­piece

1 JEW­ELLED TRA­DI­TION The Pearl­mas­ter is the crown­ing glory of Rolex’s jew­ellery watches. Pieces in this col­lec­tion tra­di­tion­ally fea­ture di­als with op­u­lent gem set­tings.

2 RAZ­ZLE DAZ­ZLE The Pearl­mas­ter 39 is set with more than 850 di­a­monds, which are se­lected and graded in Rolex’s own gem­mol­ogy lab­o­ra­tory.

3 ETER­NAL SHINE The case is made of Everose, Rolex’s ver­sion of rose gold. Plat­inum is added to the usual mix of gold and cop­per to cre­ate this spe­cial al­loy and to pre­vent dis­coloura­tion.

4 MADE FOR DEPTH The case is waterproof to 100 me­tres, with a mid­dle sec­tion carved from a solid block of Everose gold, and the case back is fit­ted with a spe­cial tool avail­able only to Rolex watch­mak­ers.

5 PATENTLY AD­VANCED The watch is equipped with a self-wind­ing cal­i­bre backed by 14 patents, one of which is for the Chronergy es­cape­ment, which in­creases the ef­fi­ciency and re­li­a­bil­ity of the move­ment.

6 AWE­SOME AU­TON­OMY The new and more ef­fi­cient ar­chi­tec­ture of the move­ment’s bar­rel boosts the es­cape­ment’s per­for­mance, in­creas­ing the watch’s power re­serve by 10 hours to a to­tal of 70 hours.

7 OP­TI­MUM PRE­CI­SION The move­ment car­ries the Rolex Su­perla­tive Chronome­ter cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, which guar­an­tees pre­ci­sion of −2/+2 sec­onds per day, more than twice that re­quired of a stan­dard chronome­ter.

9 ANTI-MAG­NETIC The Rolex Chronergy es­cape­ment that drives the watch is made from nickel phos­pho­rus, giv­ing the move­ment strong re­sis­tance to mag­netic in­ter­fer­ence.
