Rolex Yacht-Master Ref. 126621

$17,195

Pre-owned (Unworn) Rolex 40mm Yacht-Master, Black Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 126621

As clear from the name, the Rolex Yacht-Master is the nautical inspired luxury sport watch built to withstand the rigors of racing, while also being more luxurious than the Submariner.  Although Rolex has been a longtime supporter of sail racing, it did not introduce the Yacht-Master until 1992.  The Yacht-Master reference 126621 boasts a 40mm Oyster case with high-polish tapered lugs and a matching steel and 18K rose gold Oyster bracelet.  The Oyster bracelet is equipped with an Oysterlock folding clasp, which prevents accidental opening and the Easylink comfort extension link allows the wearer to increase the bracelet length 5mm.  Like all Rolex Professional watches, the Yacht-Master 40 offers exceptional legibility in all circumstances, and especially in the dark, thanks to its Chromalight display.  The broad hands and hour markers in simple shapes – triangles, circles, rectangles – are filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting glow.  This watch comes complete with box and papers.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
