At Baselworld 1992, Rolex added a brand new model to its catalogue referred to as the Yacht-Master.
The brand developed the model as a more luxurious and gaudy sibling of the legendary Rolex Submariner diver watch.
However, Rolex made the Submariner exclusively for ventures underneath the ocean surface. On the other hand, the Yacht-Master outdo while it is worn on the boat decks as well as on the land.
The Yacht-Master Reference 116621 was released at Baselworld 2016. More significantly, it was the ever first Everose Yacht-Master edition.
Today, the Yacht-Master 116621 is gathering slightly more attention than ever before among collectors across the world.
The Yacht-Master is considered as a more luxurious and fancier version of the legendary Submariner watch. How?
So, what makes the watch different from the Submariner?
The Rolex Yacht-Master features a new sand-blasted bezel that is made of either platinum or gold as well as more curved and refined lugs.
However, the Yacht-Master features a bidirectional rotating bezel with polished and raised graduations.
On the contrary, the Submariner sports a unidirectional bezel with engraved numerals.
The Rolex Yacht-Master 116621 features a 40mm Oyster case, sand-blasted 60-minute rotating bezel and patented Triplock crown.
However, Rolex fitted the Yacht-Master with more tapered and curved lugs, offering a more refined and dressier look to it.
Nonetheless, the brown, as well as the black dial iterations, are significantly cherished and coveted among collectors in the second hand market.
The reference 116621 features its name “Yacht-Master” engraved in a red hue on the dial.
Regarding the bracelet, Rolex today offers the Yacht-Master 40 model on an Oysterflex rubber and a 3-link Oyster bracelet.
The patented Easylink extension on the clasp enables wearers to decrease or increase the bracelet’s length by 5mm with no use of tools.
The Yacht-Master reference 116621 is powered by the proprietary Calibre 3135 movement.
Newer versions of the Calibre 3135 movement is also fitted with the brand’s proprietary Parachrom blue hairspring.
Moreover, the Calibre 3135 comes with the Superlative Chronometer certification given by Rolex.
