SPARKLE AND SHIM­MER

India Today - - LAST LOOK -

Rolex’s new pre­sen­ta­tion for this year’s BaselWorld, the re-imag­ined Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Lady Date­just Pearl­mas­ter re­de­fines fem­i­nine el­e­gance en­cased in an in­escapably blind­ing cas­cade of jewels com­bined with the most pre­cious ma­te­ri­als. The case comes in white or black mother pearl be­decked in a lo­tus flower mo­tif in pink gold that criss crosses the en­tire face of the watch. The case and the bracelet are made from 18-carat Everose man­u­fac­tured at Rolex’s own foundry. De­spite the 34 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds on the bezel and the 226 on the bracelet, and the 11 set di­rectly on the nu­meral VI on the watch face, the Pearl­mas­ter is built for stur­di­ness, ca­pa­ble of with­stand­ing upto 100 me­tres of depth and fea­tures a fluted case back, which is her­met­i­cally screwed. The crys­tal, equipped with the trade­mark Cy­clops lens at 3 o’clock for easy read­ing of the date, is made of vir­tu­ally scratch­proof sap­phire. Like all Rolex Per­pet­ual move­ments, the Lady Date­just is a cer­ti­fied Swiss chronome­ter, a des­ig­na­tion re­served for high-pre­ci­sion watches that have suc­cess­fully passed the Swiss Of­fi­cial Chronome­ter Test­ing In­sti­tute (COSC) tests. It’s grace is only en­hanced by the knowl­edge that when mezzo-so­prano Ce­cilia Bar­toli sang “Ex­sul­tate, Ju­bi­late” at the gala con­cert cel­e­brat­ing the 250th an­niver­sary of Mozart’s birth, she was wear­ing this very di­a­mond stud­ded watch.
