ELLE (Malaysia) - - WATCH SPECIAL -

Rolex Oys­ter Perp et­ual Yacht-Mas­ter II

What is it? A re­vamped ver­sion of the orig­i­nal Yacht-Mas­ter, this time­piece ranks high among chrono­graph re­gatta watches for its im­proved vis­i­bil­ity, func­tion­al­ity and aes­thetic value.

What is it made of? There are four op­tions to choose from: 904L stain­less steel, steel and Everose gold (a Rolex-patented pink gold which com­bines yel­low gold, plat­inum and cop­per), yel­low gold and white gold with plat­inum.

What makes it spe­cial? It has countdown pro­gram­ming with me­chan­i­cal mem­ory so you can pre­cisely time the start­ing or­der of a re­gatta.

Per­fect for Any­one with a pen­chant for sail­ing and re­gat­tas.

Rolex Oys­ter Perp et­ual Lady-Date­just 28

What is it? This year’s it­er­a­tion of one of the most iden­ti­fi­able women’s watches on the mar­ket.

What is it made of? For the first time, Lady-Date­just 28 comes in 904L stain­less steel, and white gold with di­a­monds. The crys­tal is scratch-re­sis­tant sap­phire and the Oys­ter bracelet has an ex­ten­sion sys­tem so you can ad­just its length for a com­fort­able fit.

What makes it spe­cial? De­spite its rosy pink dial, this time­piece is any­thing but del­i­cate. The crys­tal is scratch-re­sis­tant sap­phire, and the Lady-Date­just is wa­ter­proof up to 100m.

Per­fect for All out­fits, all hours.

Rolex Cellini Moon­phase

What is it? A re­fined time­piece in­spired by clas­sic Rolex time­pieces and a nod to watch­mak­ing her­itage.

What is it made of? Everose gold with a domed sap­phire crys­tal and to­bacco leather strap. It is wa­ter­proof up to 50m and has per­pet­ual, me­chan­i­cal and self­wind­ing move­ments.

What makes it spe­cial? The face is fixed with a blue enam­elled disc that dis­plays the lu­nar cy­cle.

Per­fect for Those look­ing for a dress watch. Wear with a crisp shirt and make it the fo­cus of your evening and out­fit.

Rolex Oys­ter Perp et­ual Sky-Dweller

What is it? Launched in 2012, the SkyDweller caught the eyes of watch en­thu­si­asts ev­ery­where for its com­plex cal­i­bre 9001 and re­fined de­sign. Fast for­ward to 2017, the new Sky-Dweller is avail­able in yel­low or white Role­sor ver­sions – a patented Rolex term to de­scribe the meet­ing of two met­als.

What is it made of? Steel and yel­low gold or steel and white gold. The cas­ing is made of scratch-re­sis­tant sap­phire with a Chro­ma­light dis­play al­low­ing the nu­mer­als to glow in the dark.

What makes it spe­cial? Dual-time fea­tures. The Sky-Dweller is a triple threat with its abil­ity to set a ref­er­ence time, lo­cal time, month and date.

Per­fect for The jet-set­ter rack­ing up air miles.
