Introduced at this year's Baselworld, Rolex's newest Yacht-Master 40, the latest rose gold twist on the modern reboot of the classic Submariner, is definitely worth a look by any Rolex aficionado.

Most strikingly, this stylish nautical timepiece blends a chocolate dial with Everose Rolesor—Rolex's proprietary 904L stainless steel and 18-carat pink gold alloy—on the bidirectional rotatable graduated bezel and matching center bracelet links.

Although it exudes a softer side of elegance, it's sporty all the way.

At its heart, a patented blue Parachrom hairspring is impervious to magnets, can withstand big temperature swings and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. 

Add a virtually scratch-proof sapphire crystal and hermetically sealed case back and winding crown that make it waterproof to 100 meters and you've got a luxury watch that's ready for anything. 

This precise and reliable self-winding timepiece—just as at home calculating the sailing time between two buoys as kicking back at the yacht club—retails for between $13,500 and $14,000 and comes with a five-year international guarantee.

The 40-millimeter model is also available in steel and platinum with either a Blue or Dark Rhodium dial, and there's a 37-millimeter version also featuring Dark Rhodium as well.
