THANK YOU! Raise your sails! Whether on or off shore, the Yacht-Master’s relaxed luxury is the perfect companion.We specialize in the classic models that shaped the Rolex brand over the time span of many decades. We’re talking about classics like the Datejust, Submariner, GMT, and Daytona. In that sense, the Yacht-Master is a bit of an odd duckling. Introduced in the 1990s, it’s a crossover model between the no-nonsense toolwatches of old and the luxury sports watches that Rolex produces nowadays. It’s a thin line between cool and gaudy, but Rolex hit gold with the Yacht-Master.We love the Yacht-Master because it’s a lighter take on the classic Submariner diver watch. It comes in the same slim 40mm stainless steel case as a classic Submariner, but the polished lugs and two-tone bracelet with polished center links give it a luxurious twist. Pair that with the engraved and sand-blasted 18k yellow gold rotating bezel, white dial, and yellow gold hour markers with funky black luminous filling, and you have the perfect sports watch for the summer (or any other time you damn well please).This ref. 16623 Yacht-Master is in excellent condition, with a sharp case and tight bracelet. The watch dates back to 2005 and comes as a full set, with the original inner and outer box, booklets, and papers.
Rolex Yacht-MasterRolex seems to have toyed with the idea of a nautical watch in the 1960s. A handful of prototype ‘Paul Newman’ style Cosmograph dials with printed “Yacht-Master” text have surfaced over the years, but a nautical Rolex chronograph never actually came to fruition.In 1992, Rolex introduced its first dedicated nautical watch under the Yacht-Master name. Unlike preceding sports watches (like the Submariner and Daytona), the Yacht-Master forewent the toolwatch aesthetics. To achieve a sporty luxurious look, the first Yacht-Master (ref. 16628) sported a gold Oyster case, with big markers and hands, more polished surfaces on the case and bracelet, and an engraved solid gold bezel. In 1994, Rolex introduced a midsize and a ladies version. Finally, Rolex added a stainless steel version with solid platinum bezel to the Yacht-Master line-up in 1997.
