With the new 2016 version of the Pearlmaster in pink Everose gold, you get all the Rolex hallmarks – the Oyster case with screw-down solid caseback and crown, 100 metres water resistance, the Rolex calibre 3235 self-winding movement providing 70 hours power reserve, and Superlative Chronometer certification, a precision of around -2/+2 seconds max deviation per day. In addition, there are the diamonds, on the bezel, the dial, and on the bracelet.
In terms of appearance, the distinctive feature of this piece is the contrast between the white gold used for the bezel and the narrow links of the Pearlmaster bracelet, highlighting the whiteness of the diamonds, with respect to the Everose gold used in the other parts of the watch. The 39 mm diameter of the Rolex Pearlmaster makes it a timepiece that could be worn by both men and women. The new versions join the 2015 Pearlmaster watches with their graduated sapphires on the bezel.
