Launched in 2015, the Datejust Pearlmaster 39 is a a high-jewelry version of the Rolex Datejust. It is the first of the Datejust models to be fitted with the caliber 3235 movement, and the first to sport the 39mm case size. In its present form, it is fitted with a spectacular 'Fancy Blue' bezel set with a blue to fuchsia pink gradient of 48 baguette-cut sapphires
Calibre 3235 is a new generation movement, entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex for a superlative level of performance. Certified as a Swiss chronometer by COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), it is tested a second time by Rolex after being cased to ensure that in everyday use it satisfies Rolex’s criteria for precision, which are twice as exacting as those for an officially certified chronometer. This control of the final precision of the assembled watch is carried out using a methodology and high-technology equipment specially developed by Rolex. Caliber 3235 features the new Chronergy escapement and Parachrom hairspring.
