Rolex Yachtmaster: An Accuracy Symbol
In 1992, the Rolex Yachtmaster was first introduced, available in 18K yellow gold, exclusively. Then in 1994, Rolex added two new models to the line: a ladies (model 69628) and mid size (model 68628), respectively, marking the first time a Professional series watch was released in the smaller sizes. Originally, these models were only available in 18K yellow gold as well. The Yachtmaster was derived from the Submariner with a modified bezel and the bezels on both watches are useful as a 60-minute timers.
However, in 1996 Rolex released two-toned (steel and 18K yellow gold) models as the ladies (model 69623) and mid-sized (model 68623), respectively.
Today, an all-stainless steel version is also available, but only in mid-size models.In 1997, Rolex released the Yachtmaster in Rolesium, a term patented by Rolex in 1932, signifying a stainless steel and platinum finish. The success of this configuration has been likened to that of the stainless steel Daytona, with sales in the secondary market exceeding that of the initial retail price. This, of course, was due to the limited availability of the watch, which Rolex will likely continue to cash in on for years to come.The Yacht-Master line as a whole has grown to become one of the more popular models of recent years, especially with the younger group of buyers hitting the market.
