2016 Everose Rolesor Rolex Yacht-Master 40

12:29 PM

Rolex's Yacht-Master 40 model (Reference # 116621), shown in the photo below in Everose Rolesor (a combination of rose gold and stainless steel), combines characteristics of two of their popular models, the Submariner and Yacht-Master II, to create a sophisticated nautical watch that can go from the open seas to an elegant oceanfront event. With a chocolate dial that compliments its 18 ct rose gold bezel, the aesthetic of the YM stands out amongst Rolex's professional watches as a chic alternative that incorporates current trends in a subtle yet beautiful way.

Like the Submariner Date and Sea-Dweller 4000 models, it is fitted with a 3135 self-winding mechanical movement manufactured in-house by the watchmaker. It features the same functionality and case size as the dive watches, but instead of a Cerachrom bezel it features a rose gold bezel with raised, polished numerals and gradations against the sand-blasted background. The Oyster case is made from Rolex's 904L stainless steel alloy and waterproof up to 100 meters, thanks in part to its Triplock winding crown. This two-tone configuration features brushed steel links with polished rose gold center links.

What differentiates this nautical wristwatch model from the others that share its movement and functionality is the sophistication of its bezel and dial combinations. In addition to Everose Rolesor, the 2016 Yacht-Master 40 is available in a combination of steel and platinum with either a dark rhodium dial or a blue dial for those who prefer cool tones. This elevates the model beyond a simple tool watch, with the precious metals taking it to another level as compared to a stainless steel Sub, for example. It is also smaller than the Yacht-Master II, making it more accessible to people with smaller wrist sizes.

The suggested retail price for the Everose Rolesor Yacht-Master 40 is 13,400 Swiss francs, or approximately $13,500 US. This puts it roughly $3,000 to $5,000 above the stainless steel Sea-Dweller 4000 and Submariner Date models, respectively. Considering that it features the same functionality, the decision to purchase the Yacht-Master comes down to desire for gold or platinum on the bezel and center links.
