The Rolex Yacht-Master is a sports watch made by Rolex, first introduced in 1992 with the model 16628 in 18-carat yellow gold. In 1994, Rolex released a lady's model (69628) and a mid-size man's model (68628), which was the first time Rolex had ever released a smaller professional size watch. In 1996, Rolex introduced two-tone (stainless steel and 18-carat yellow gold) to the lady's and mid-size lines.
The exquisite Yacht-Master in Rolesium was released in 1997. The term was patented by Rolex in 1932 which gives the Yacht-Master a stainless steel and platinum construction; the bezel and dial are platinum, while the case, band, crown, etc. are stainless steel. This model is also known as the Platinum Yacht-Master.
In 1999, Rolex discontinued the two-tone model 68623, replacing it with the two-tone model 168623 in 2000. The difference between the two models is in the upgraded movement in the 168623, and the heavier 18-carat gold links (the links in the 68623 are hollow).
Then the year 2007 marked another great model release by the brand, the Rolex Yacht-Master II regatta chronograph watch, the world's first watch equipped with a programmable countdown from 1 to 10 minutes with a mechanical memory.
The Everose Yacht-Master, the very first Rolex watch to come with a rubber strap, called the Oysterflex was launched on the market in 2015. The Everose Yacht-Master comes in two sizes - 37mm (268655) and 40mm (126655).
In 2019, Rolex introduced the Rolex Yacht-Master 42, the first time-and-date Yacht-Master watch with a case size of 42 mm. The case, bezel, and Oysterlock clasp are made of white gold, while the bezel has a matte black Cerachrom insert.
The Rolex Yacht-Master is now offered in 37 mm, 40 mm and 42 mm case sizes, starting in 2020. All Rolex Yacht-master models have a water resistance rating of 100 meters [330 ft].

We know the value of security, so every pre-owned watch we sell comes with a 12-month warranty alongside any remaining manufacturer's warranty. Should your watch develop any issues, through no fault of your own, then we shall repair it free of charge for the duration of your warranty. Please note our warranty doesn’t apply to new watches.
How Does the Warranty Work
- If you have any remaining manufacturer's warranty, then you can send your watch to them for repair either via us or via an authorized retailer.
- If your watch is covered by a Swiss Luxury Watches warranty only, then we will undertake the repairs in conjunction with the manufacturer where necessary.
- If your watch is not covered by any warranty then you can send it to us for a quote. Any work undertaken by us will be covered by a further 24-month Swiss Luxury Watches warranty.
Please note that our warranty covers manufacturing and mechanical defects only.
Our warranty is subject to the same terms and conditions as the manufacturer’s warranty. The standard manufacturer’s warranty does not cover theft or loss of the watch. Normal wear-and-tear or damage caused to the watch by accidents or mishandling/mistreatment are also excluded, as well as damage caused to a watch due to submersion in water which is against the manufacturer's guidelines. One particular example not covered by the warranty is the wear of the watch strap.
Any modification of a watch by the addition or substitution of components with aftermarket products which have not been provided by the manufacturer will also invalidate the warranty. The use of aftermarket components can severely compromise the technical performance, reliability and waterproofness of the watch.
Warranty return packs are sent directly to the service center, however you are free to deliver your warranty return to any Swiss Luxury Watches premises where it will be forwarded along to the service center directly. Please be advised that warranty return packs must be adequately insured at your own expense. The warranty is in addition to your statutory and common law rights.
