Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm Yacht-Master, Silver Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 16622

The Rolex Yacht-Master was first introduced in 1992 as a luxury sports watch designed specifically for sailors and yacht enthusiasts. It was initially offered in a 40mm size with a platinum bezel and stainless steel case and bracelet. Over the years, the Yacht-Master has undergone several updates, including the introduction of new sizes, materials, and movements, and has become one of Rolex’s most popular and iconic models. Today, the Yacht-Master is available in a variety of sizes, from 37mm to 42mm, and is offered in a range of materials, including gold, steel, and platinum.

The Yacht-Master 16622 features a 40mm stainless steel case adorned with a bi-directional rotating platinum bezel, embodying a blend of sophistication and functionality. Crafted from Rolex’s patented Rolesium, the Yacht-Master offers the durability of stainless steel together with the precious metal, platinum. Both the dial and bezel are made of platinum, with the dial exhibiting a slight grain appearance that sparkles in the sun. This watch from later in the production includes a rehaut engraved with Rolex and the serial number. The 40mm diameter Rolex Yacht-Master uses the in-house rock solid caliber 3135, which is a chronometer-certified movement with a power reserve of 48 hours. The case is prepared to withstand depths of up to 100 meters, which as a sailing watch offers just the right amount of protection against water damage while sailing on the water’s surface. Just like many other Rolex sports watches, the Yacht-Master pairs the Oyster case with an Oyster bracelet, complete with three-piece links and an Oysterlock clasp for a secure hold during any activity. The Yacht-Master represents one of the best value watches from Rolex.

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.
