Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master

March 10, 2016

Appearing on the scene in 1992, the Yacht-Master is still considered one of the newer models in the Rolex lineup, followed by the Sky-Dweller model two decades later in 2012.

The current model is offered with an Oysterflex bracelet made with a titanium-nickel alloy blade that attaches the case to the clasp and is coated with black elastomer, giving it a sportier look than we have seen from Rolex in past models. The inside of the bracelet is lined with a longitudinal cushion system designed for a comfortable fit.

The Yacht-Master is the only one of the current Rolex Oyster professional models that is available with either a 35mm or 40mm case. The 40mm version is equipped with a 3135 movement and the 35mm with a 2235 movement. It also features a bi-directional, rotatable, 60 minute graduated bezel with a black ceramic inlay and raised numerals.

Waterproof up to 100 meters, this incarnation of the Yacht-Master provides an interesting mix of the luxury Rolex is known for and the pragmatism that is more complimentary to those who wear the timepiece on a daily basis - especially on the open seas.

The suggested retail price for the Yacht-Master configuration shown above (reference # 116655) is 23,800 Swiss Francs (approximately $24,964 US).
