4 Popular Rolex Yacht-Master Bezels

April 2nd, 2020

Rolex has offered some of the best bezels to its exclusive Yacht-Master and Yacht-Master II collection.

The manufacturer designed and developed the Rolex Yacht-Master watches exclusively for sea-faring. The model is indeed a proud member of the brand’s professional Oyster watch collection.

The Rolex Yacht-Master is unique with its larger hands and more prominent hour markers and all robust features that make it durable and legible in the harshest environmental conditions.

More significantly, the watch flaunts some bold, sporty yet sophisticated bezels that make it stand out of the crowd.

Thus, let’s today explore some of the favourite rare and modern bezels of the Rolex Yacht-Master.

  • Rolex Yacht-Master II 116680 with Blue Cerachrom Bezel

Rolex began fitting its watches with Cerachrom bezels in 2005. The Rolex Yacht-Master II ref 116680 flaunts a bright and contemporary Cerachrom bezel.

The watch features a more substantial 44mm stainless steel, two-tone Everose or yellow gold case with blue ceramic bezel.

Overall, the bold size and colour of the Yacht-Master II reference 116680 capture everyone’s attention.

  • Yacht-Master 116622 with Platinum Bezel

The Rolex Yacht-Master reference 116622 is indeed a luxury sports watch, featuring solid 950-platinum bezel.

Rolex is known to use this alloy very often in its watches. However, this rarely used alloy used in this sporty timepiece is beloved by many.

  • However, the sand-blasted platinum bezel offers the watch a feeling of practicality.
  • Additionally, the glossy and raised numerals make it readable.
  • To many people, the colour of platinum may seem pretty similar to the colour of 904L steel bracelet and case.
  • However, the platinum alloy offers a unique flair to the watch’s design.

Rolex has also produced many iterations of Rolesium Yacht-Master, flaunting sand-blasted Platinum dials.

  • Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 with Black Cerachrom Bezel

This matte black ceramic bezel is one of the most popular and coveted Rolex bezels.

  • Rolex fitted the bezel to the Everose Yacht-Master 116655 that also features a matching Oysterflex bracelet.
  • However, the masculine and sporty bezel comes with two-textured, high-polished raised numerals on a sand-blasted surface.
  • Interesting, the contrasting elements in this watch make it suitable to be worn by men as well as women.

The elegant black bezel on the Yacht-Master reference 116655 matches perfectly the flat black dial within the rose gold case, Everose pink gold-serrated ring, and black rubber strap.

  • Yacht-Master 16623 with Yellow Gold Bezel

The Rolex Yacht-Master 16623 flaunts 18ct yellow gold bezel that offers a sporty feel to the watch.

However, this yellow gold bezel is different from the ones used on GMT-Master II, and Submariner watches.

The gold bezel on the GMT-Master II and Submariner has ceramic inserts.

On the contrary, the bezel on the Yacht-Master 16623 watch is made of 18ct yellow gold. And it features high-polished, raised numerals on the matte sand-blasted surface.

Top 5 Most Popular Rolex Watch Models

September 10th, 2019

Owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, Rolex is indeed a registered charity and eventually, is not obligated to bring out anything in the way of sales figures. Thus, it needs a substantial amount of educated guesswork to compile a list of the top most popular watches. However, the interesting fact is that:

top rolex watch models

The most well-known Rolex watches typically possess a few common things. While they are consistently stylish and sleek, Rolex watches are built to last for generations. Here is a list of some of the most popular Rolex timepieces that are not only desirable in the retail market but also sought-after in the pre-owned luxury watch market. Take a look!

rolex submariner watch model

The Rolex Submariner

Ideally, the most popular and recognisable Rolex watch of all time is the Submariner. Introduced in 1953, the Rolex Submariner has been in a class and sphere of its own. The timepiece was initially devised keeping scuba divers in mind. Sporting the Rolex patent Oyster case, the Submariner indeed became the first timepiece to serve as a highly reliable tool watch, while remaining modish enough to suit any outfit and occasion.

However, while the earliest versions were water-resistant up to a depth of 330ft, the watches helped the divers in tracking their time underwater. The contemporary Rolex Submariner watches are waterproof to a depth of 1,000ft.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past 20years or so, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that:

The Rolex Daytona has been the world’s most coveted and iconic model for two decades now. The watch was originally produced for racecar drivers and named after the famous Daytona Florida – one of the car racing capitals of the world.

While it bears a masculine, bold aesthetic and exclusive sporty look, Rolex Daytona is one of the most famous and desirable men’s Rolex watches. However, the watch flaunts a reliable, accurate tachymeter and chronograph scale that helps car racers in measuring their speed up to an extraordinary 400kph.

rolex datejust watch model

The Rolex Datejust

The Rolex Datejust is among the most historical models that enjoyed one of the most extended production runs in the Rolex catalogue. Launched in 1945, the Rolex Datejust is the ever first watch to sport a self-winding and date complication. However, the watch comes with a proprietary Cyclops lens and available in a variety of finishes, metal colours and without or with diamonds.

The Rolex Datejust is equally popular among both men and women. Whether it is a vintage Rolex Datejust or a contemporary one, the Datejust can be a perfect everyday watch that can make you feel classy in any wardrobe.

rolex gmt master

The Rolex GMT-Master

Introduced in 1954, the Rolex GMT-Master was made especially for the use of Pan American Airways’ pilots and navigators. The original watch model featured a 24hour display with fourth-hand complication. This allowed the users to set their timepiece to Greenwich Mean Time or another time-zone, followed by setting the 24hour bezel to the second time-zone.

Although the production of the original model persisted till the late 1990s, Rolex introduced the GMT-Master II in the early 1980s. The Rolex GMT-Master II watch looks virtually identical to the original. However, the difference lies in their technology. The technology in the new GMT-Master version is updated and includes a quickset hour hand that wearers can adjust to set the local time without stopping the minutes and seconds-hand.

Moreover, the rotatable bezel helps the users to speculate the third time-zone easily.

However, today’s Yacht-Master range includes a 37mm and 40mm version.

Both the Yacht-Master and Yacht-Master II are water-resistant and feature large hands along with legible numbers. The modern look and functionality of the models made them an instant favourite.
