In 1992 the Rolex Yacht-Master, under reference 16628, made its appearance to the market. The introduction of this model marked an interesting turning point for Rolex as the brand became more luxury oriented instead of focused on purpose. In design it strongly resembles the Submariner but it's more refined and has a more luxurious look and feel. This reference 16623 dates back to 2007. The case is from stainless steel, the bezel and centre links of the Oyster bracelet are from 18k yellow gold. What we like, is the white dial with black markers with 18k yellow-gold hour marker surroundings and the luminova triangles. The watch runs, just like the Submariner and Sea-Dweller, on a caliber 3135. It comes as a full set.


Rolex Yacht-Master In 1992, Rolex introduced a nautical watch named the Yacht-Master. However, unlike the Submariner, the Yacht-Master was not a tool watch for diving but a luxury watch for boating. More specifically, it was made for yachting so it had to have a luxurious but sportive look. As many say, Rolex achieved this by adjusting a Submariner; bigger hands, bigger markers, smoother edges and a solid bezel with an engraved inlay. The first reference was the 16628, an 18k yellow-gold wrist watch with a case diameter of 40 mm, a white dial, black hour markers and the caliber 3135 (as was used for the Submariner and Sea-Dweller). In 1994, Rolex introduced a midsize and ladysize version. In 1999 the brand presented the steel/platinum version (ref. 16622), which instantly became a success.
