Rolex has been a longtime supporter of sailing and began experimenting with a dial prototype for a sailor’s watch in the 1960s. But it wasn’t until the early 1990s that the Yacht-Master was released to the public, marking 25 years since the renowned watchmaker had created a new design. The Yacht-Master is dedicated to the nautical lifestyle with a design that offers a harmonious balance between form and function.


Crafted from the watchmaker’s patented Rolesium alloy, a combination of stainless steel and platinum gives this nautical watch unrivaled corrosion resistance. The Rolex Yacht-Master Blue 126622 offers superlative performance with its house-made 3235 caliber. The 31 jewel automatic chronometer offers precision timekeeping and a generous 70-hour power reserve. The movement is made from rugged nickel-phosphorus, and it incorporates the new Chronergy escapement, ensuring it is resistant to magnetic forces and is highly energy efficient.


The bidirectional rotating bezel is a crucial feature for both the functionality and aesthetics of the piece. Made from durable platinum, the raised numerals and graduations contrast with the matte sand-blasted background for easy readability, while the knurled bezel allows for exceptional grip and gives the Rolex Yacht-Master its characteristic style. The bezel enables sailors to measure the distance between buoys, nautical speeds, and tracking time elapsed during a race.


The blue ceramic dial features Chromalight hour markers and broad hands for legibility even during night sailing events, while the Cyclops lens over the date display magnifies the numbers to two and a half times for easy reading. Perfect as a gift for your loved one with saltwater in their veins or to mark a special occasion,
