Albert Einstein wrote that “the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” We rely on many illusions to maintain the structure of our lives and daily routines, time being one of the most necessary. To that end, why waste your time wearing a watch that’s basic? Stand out with the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40, the gem-set version of Rolex’s emblematic nautical watch.
A genius like Einstein would appreciate its technical mastery, right down to the comfortable-casual Oysterflex bracelet and the practical-protective Triplock waterproofing seal. And anyone can love its dazzle: a bidirectional-rotating bezel bejeweled in a rainbow of 32 multicolored sapphires, eight green tsavorites and one triangular diamond, all set on 18k Everose gold. Time may be an illusion, but this unisex timepiece is real, and it’s spectacular.
