TIMEPIECE The Rolex Yachtmaster (and Yachtmaster II), well-established
as the only alternative to the iconic Submariner for discerning
seafarers, is now available in a sportier version. Featuring a black
elastomer bracelet for maximum comfort and resistance to the
salt air, it retains the time-proven safety clasp to keep it securely
in place. Initially available in black and 18ct gold livery, this
newest Yachtmaster will be offered with either a 37 mm or a more
robust 40 mm diameter case; KirkJewelers.com.
While many view Rolex timepieces as something akin to WWII-
era Land Rovers — solid, reliable but a bit lacking in the beauty
department — the all-new Lady Datejust is more akin to Cinderella
and her ugly stepsisters. In a word, the new diamond-studded Lady
Datejust is breathtaking. The redesigned 950 platinum, 18ct yellow
gold or Everose gold case has been enlarged to 28 mm to make
room for the Rolex-patented Syloxi Hairspring in silicon that works
to deliver unparalleled excellence in timekeeping; KirkJewelers.com.
