Description

First introduced in 1992, the Yacht-Master is the second timepiece to be inspired by the nautical environment. After the Submariner released in 1954, this model comes as an evolution in a more luxury way with a gold model, larger indexes, bigger case and bold bezel – this is the reference 16628. It has been a success along the nautical enthusiast and those looking for a chic and sporty model. This is the only Oyster Professional model, and still today, to be available in three different sizes as : 37mm, 40mm and 42mm.

In 1999, Rolex released a stainless steel version with a 40mm monobloc case, it was then the beginning of new and precious materials for the Yacht-Master.

During the BaselWorld 2007, Rolex revealed the Yacht-Master II, a larger case of 44mm and a brand new automatic chronograph movement was developed : the Caliber 4161. The stunning Ring Command Bezel controls the programable countdown. A new feature inspired by the nautical, sailing and regatta spirit.

 

 

 


Rolex – bio

Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, initially as Wilsdorf & Davis Ltd. Renamed Rolex by 1908 and moved its base of operations to Geneva, Switzerland in 1919.  Their success is due to their innovation namely the legendary “Oyster” case – first water resistant watch and their extremely reliable movements.
The most famous models are Datejust, Day-Date, Daytona, Explorer, GMT-Master, Submariner and many more.
The company is owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, a family private trust.
One story, never confirmed by Wilsdorf, recounts that the name came from the French words “horlogerie exquise”‘è, meaning “exquisite clockwork”.
