In 2015, replica Rolex watches added a new addition to the Pearlmaster watch collection with the Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster 39 – where for the first time a range of interesting stone decorative varieties were introduced. It’s this type of watch that has allowed Rolex to earn its due among certain audiences, while at the same time making the brand’s annoying fan base greatly interested in its more classic sports watches.
While the Rolex Pearlmaster is often considered a ladies’ watch (often referred to as the “Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster” in smaller case sizes), this new 39mm wide model does have a distinctly feminine touch, but I also know the truth will appeal to male customers everywhere. For this reason, I feel that wearing what is essentially a woman’s watch, at least for some clients, is good enough for men to make me uncomfortable. Of course, this is an interesting phenomenon, as most women’s watches are actually smaller versions of men’s watches, and the opposite is not often the case.
As far as I know, every Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster watch has some type of gemstone decoration (at least, that I’ve ever seen). The collection appears to be an “official” or decorative version of the Rolex Lady-Datejust. The Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster watch collection started with a compact 29mm version with a maximum width of 34mm and is now 39mm. Each of them shares a special bracelet, which is certainly more “jewel-like” than most other Rolex bracelets. Rolex simply refers to this five chain bracelet as the “Pearlmaster” and it is very smooth and comfortable to move the chain and wear.
The 2015 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Pearlmaster 39 watch collection has many similarities with another 2015 Rolex launch. Both the Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster 39 and the new Rolex Day-Date 40 watches (hands-on here) share the fact that they are the first watches to include ceramic inserts in a gold bracelet (more on that later). and the 3235 series of movements. The Rolex Day-Date 40 watch includes the Rolex 3255 automatic movement instead of the 3235, but as far as I know, the only major difference is the addition of the day-of-the-week indicator disc in the 3255, while the 3235 has the time and date.
So, let’s discuss the movement. I actually recommend anyone interested in sports read our discussion above about the 2015 Rolex Day-Date 40 watch. I call these watches perhaps the best timepieces Rolex has produced to date. What makes the 3235 caliber different is its focus on accuracy. In addition to providing a standard COSC chronograph rating for each individual movement, Rolex now uses its own series of tests to ensure accuracy and reliability over time – they are simply called “Rolex Chronograph Tests”.
