Rolex's ocean-ready Yacht-Master gets a handsome black and gold update this year with a watch case wrapped in 18 ct Everose. They've also created a new strap called an Oysterflex bracelet that is made from a high-performance, highly resistant elastomer that is designed for comfort, but with the same ruggedness as their metal bracelets.

The black bezel is made from their Cerachrom ceramic and has raised numerals and is unidirectional. The bezel is also complemented by a black dial, the first time a black dial has been used on a Yacht-Master. Lastly, the watch comes in 40mm and 37mm case sizes.
