SHOW AND TELL

Dis­play­ing the lux­ury watch­maker’s gem-set­ting mas­tery like never be­fore, the ROLEX Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Pearl­mas­ter 39 is all about bar­ing the heart and soul

Singapore Tatler Wedding - - ROLEX FEATURE -

Be­yond words, love is about grand ges­tures and feel­ings, and with the Rolex Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Pearl­mas­ter 39, the brand’s leg­endary watch­mak­ing ex­per­tise and gem-set­ting in­tri­ca­cies unite in an un­abashed ex­pres­sion of eter­nal de­vo­tion that is no dif­fer­ent from true love.

The crown in the Rolex jew­ellery watch uni­verse, the Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Pearl­mas­ter has been hailed not only for its tech­ni­cal supremacy but also its cap­ti­vat­ing looks. What makes its new­est in­car­na­tion, the Pearl­mas­ter 39, so cov­eted is un­doubt­edly the di­a­mond-paved dial which com­mands sec­ond glances from any­one who sets eyes on it. To en­sure max­i­mum bril­liance, all 713 di­a­monds must meet a strin­gent se­lec­tion cri­te­ria be­fore in-house gem- set­ters carve me­tal and hand­shape the per­fect “seat” for each gem­stone. This at­ten­tion to de­tail con­tin­ues with pre­cise align­ment of the height of the gems and pro­por­tion, down to the an­gle at which they are placed. This is also ev­i­dent in the 18k white gold bezel which is adorned with 36 brilliant-cut di­a­monds. Ro­man nu­mer­als and hands in 18k pink gold tell time in an al­most poetic fash­ion.

Like oth­ers in the Pearl­mas­ter fam­ily, the Pearl­mas­ter 39 en­cap­su­lates watch­mak­ing per­fec­tion that comes with an il­lus­tri­ous her­itage. At its heart is the self-wind­ing cal­i­bre 3235 with a 70-hour power re­serve. It in­cor­po­rates the new Chronergy es­cape­ment for greater en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and de­pend­abil­ity. Equally im­pres­sive is the ro­bust yet re­fined “home” for the move­ment. The Oys­ter case, crafted in fem­i­nine 18k Everose gold that is cast in the Rolex foundry, is water­proof to 100m.

The 18k Everose gold bracelet that gen­tly yet se­curely hugs the wrist is the prod­uct of ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy. Its rounded five­piece solid links are hall­marks of the Pearl­mas­ter, that goes back to 1992 when it was born. Two rows of in­ter­me­di­ate links in 18k white gold set with 144 brilliant-cut di­a­monds add to the sen­su­al­ity of the time­piece. Cov­ered by the Su­perla­tive Chronome­ter cer­ti­fi­ca­tion re­de­fined by Rolex in 2015, the Pearl­mas­ter 39 af­ter cas­ing has the pre­ci­sion of the order of -2/+2 sec­onds per day, or more than twice that re­quired of an of­fi­cial chronome­ter.

With the Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Pearl­mas­ter 39, Rolex seals its rep­u­ta­tion as a leader in the art of watch­mak­ing while bring­ing to the fore its gem-set­ting mas­tery in a way never seen be­fore, mak­ing it a fit­ting re­flec­tion of the depths of true love.
