For fans of Rolex, Baselworld 2016 was all about the stainless steel Daytona finally receiving a ceramic bezel and a dial modification. The new Air King also hit the headlines for its new iteration. The new addition to the Yachtmaster lineup was under the radar and didn’t receive as much attention. For the first time the Yachtmaster is available in a combination of 904L stainless steel and 18ct Everose Gold. We take a closer look at the Rolex Yachtmaster 40 Everose Rolesor Ref 116621.
The Rolex Yachtmaster can be looked upon as the blinged up version of its older brother in the Rolex lineup: The Submariner.
Previous tool watches produced by Rolex fake watches UK were developed with input from professionals in respective fields. The Submariner and Sea Dweller were developed with the French diving company COMEX. Pan Am approached Rolex to develop a timepiece that could help pilots keep track of a 2nd timezone, which resulted in the creation of the GMT Master. The younger brother of the Yachtmaster, the Yachtmaster II was developed with professional yachtsmen in mind with its world first programmable mechanical countdown timer with memory for yacht races. The Yachtmaster can be seen as taking its design roots from the Submariner and evolving them by tweaking certain elements such as the bezel and dial materials to attract a luxury yachting clientele with its nautical name.
That being said the Yachtmaster is still an attractive looking timepiece and the latest model released at Baselworld is no exception.
The case is 40mm in diamater and is manufactured from 904L stainless steel. The case has been polished to a mirror shine to provide a contrast to the Oyster bracelet which is a mixture of brushed stainless steel and the polished centre links of 18 ct Everose gold Rolex replica watches. This combination is referred to as two tone & Rolex have used the word “Rolesor” since 1933 to describe the combination of steel and a precious metal. The dial is a sunburst chocolate colour which has a nice depth to it. One special feature of the Yachtmaster dial is the printing of the word “Yachtmaster” in red.
We wish 904L stainless steel Rolex fake watches could do the same for the Submariner! Depending on the amount of light hitting the bezel and the dial, we feel like nicknaming this model the Root Beer as the colour projected is pretty close to a glass of root beer!
