Model Availability

All Rolex watches are assembled by hand with the utmost care to ensure exceptional quality. Such high standards naturally restrict Rolex production capacity and, at times, the demand for Rolex watches outpaces this capacity.

Therefore, the availability of certain models may be limited. New Rolex watches are exclusively sold by Official Rolex Jewelers, who receive regular deliveries and independently manage the allocation and sales of watches to customers.

Joseph-Anthony Fine Jewelry is proud to be part of the worldwide network of Official Rolex Jewelers and can provide information on the availability of Rolex watches.

A new jewel shines on the surface of the sea: for the first time, the Yacht-Master 42 is available in yellow gold - an inspired and original refinement to the emblematic sailing timepiece that in no way alters its course. Rolex is presenting a new version of the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 42. From now on, the nautical watch is also available in 18 ct yellow gold, after having been offered uniquely in 18 ct white gold. The new version, which, like the original model, includes a bidirec-tional rotatable bezel and a Cerachrom insert with a raised graduation as well as the innovative Oysterflex bracelet, benefits from an optimized Chromalight display. The hour markers and hands are filled or coated with a new luminescent ma-terial, exclusive to Rolex, that guarantees a long-er-lasting intense glow. In daylight, these display elements also have a brighter white hue.
