The Rolex Yacht-Master
The Rolex Yacht-Master is the only watch in the Oyster Professional Collection that is available to buy in three different sizes: 40, 35 and 29mm. Stylistically the Yacht-Master is loved for its casual yet functional aesthetic, with blue or mother-of-pearl dials that evoke thoughts of the marine world.
The Yacht-Master is a sports watch by design. It features a bi-directional rotatable bezel with a 60 -minute graduated scale. The bezel can be used for making time recordings associated with water activities, for example calculating the sailing time between two buoys. The spirit of the Yacht-Master is underlined by Rolex continued support of the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
While the bezel highlights the functionality of the Yacht-Master it also shows another side to this watch. Constructed using 18-carat gold or 950 platinum, it’s a shining reminder that this watch is as wearable at the yacht club lounge as is it out on deck. This provides subtle elegant accents to the smaller ladies models.
The Yacht-Master is ideal for those who desire a blend of sports functionality and timeless design. The hands and markers manage to be large yet still produce a subtle effect when set against the dial. It also provides some much needed variety coming in a range of sizes.
