On Deck with the Rolex Yacht-Master

The Yacht-Master is the ultimate Rolex for skippers. You’ll be sure to stir up excitement at sea or the yacht club with this gold or platinum watch on your wrist. Thanks to the caliber 3235, these watches have had a 70-hour power reserve since 2019.

A Luxury Watch for Sailors

Rolex and water sport have a history that stretches back to the 1950s. In addition to the Yacht-Master, other popular models include diving watches like the Submariner and Sea-Dweller. However, unlike its deep-diving brethren, the Yacht-Master has been the premier timepiece for skippers since 1992.

Thanks to the wide range of available case sizes – from 29 to 42 mm – the Rolex Yacht-Master is perfect for men and women. In terms of material, you can choose from various models in 18-karat gold, as well as two-tone editions that combine gold or platinum with type 904L stainless steel. Rolex calls this steel alloy "Oystersteel" and prefers it for its robust and non-corrosive properties. Other Rolex-specific terms include "Rolesor" for two-tone watches in stainless steel and gold and "Rolesium." The latter is exclusive to the Yacht-Master series and pairs a stainless steel case and bracelet with a bezel in 950 platinum.

Unlike the Submariner and Sea-Dweller, which have unidirectional bezels, the Yacht-Master's bezel is bidirectional. Some models feature bezel inlays made of scratch-resistant ceramic. The Yacht-Master's case is water-resistant to 100 m (10 bar, 328 ft), meaning it can join you while you swim or snorkel.

The collection's top model is the Yacht-Master II with a regatta chronograph. This countdown function is especially practical for water sportsmen, though it also has many uses in everyday life.

5 Reasons to Buy a Rolex Yacht-Master

  • High-quality materials like gold and platinum
  • Exclusive to the Yacht-Master: Rolesium models made from a combination of stainless steel and platinum
  • Yacht-Master II with a regatta chronograph
  • In-house caliber with a 70-hour power reserve
  • Case sizes ranging from 29 to 42 mm

How much does a Rolex Yacht-Master cost?

The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 ref. 126621 combines stainless steel with Everose gold and costs between 14,500 and 16,000 USD. Introduced in 2019, it features Rolex's in-house caliber 3235 with a 70-hour power reserve. Its predecessor, the ref. 116621, uses the caliber 3135, which has a 48-hour power reserve. This version demands around 14,500 USD new and 13,500 USD pre-owned.

The ref. 126655 is also 40 mm in diameter and equipped with the caliber 3235; however, its case is made of solid 18-karat {lex-everose,Everose gold}. Rolex pairs this watch with an Oysterflex bracelet. While it may seem like a strap thanks to its outer Elastomer rubber shell, inside the bracelet, you'll find a series of flexible metal inserts. Finally, black {lex-cerachrom,cerachrom ceramic} sits within the watch's Everose gold bezel. You can purchase this timepiece in mint condition for about 28,500 USD. Used models change hands for roughly 26,000 USD. The earlier ref. 116655 houses the caliber 3135 and costs about 2,300 USD less.

Rolex offers the Yacht-Master 40 in Rolesium, a combination of stainless steel and platinum that exudes a sense of understated elegance. This Rolesium timepiece has a stainless steel case and three-piece link Oyster bracelet, while its bezel shines in 950 platinum. Unlike the Submariner and Sea-Dweller with fully brushed bracelets, the Yacht-Master's bracelet features polished middle links and brushed outer links. As of 2019, the Rolesium Yacht-Master gets its power from the caliber 3235. This model bears the reference number 126622 and sells for about 14,000 USD new and 13,500 USD pre-owned. You can save some 2,300 USD by purchasing the previous edition, the ref. 116622.

Prices for the Rolex Yacht-Master 42

If you'd prefer the Yacht-Master with a 42 mm case, you should be on the lookout for the ref. 226659. This model debuted in 2019. It features an 18-karat white gold case and the caliber 3235. The bezel has a black Cerachrom inlay with a black 60-minute scale. This watch comes on a matching black Oysterflex bracelet. A never-worn Yacht-Master 42 ref. 226659 requires an investment of around 32,500 USD. Pre-owned versions cost about 1,200 USD less.

Prices for Women's Models

The Yacht-Master 37 is the current collection's smallest model. Its moderate case size means it still falls within the realm of standard men's watches. However, Rolex used to produce 29 and 35-mm women's Yacht-Masters in the 1990s and 2000s. Prices for these timepieces begin around 4,700 USD in stainless steel. You can purchase a 35-mm model for as little as 6,400 USD.

The 37-mm editions cost several thousand dollars more and feature more advanced Rolex technology. For example, these models have come with the caliber 2236 since 2014. This movement also appears in the Lady-Datejust and boasts a 55-hour power reserve and Rolex's proprietary silicon Syloxi spring. This type of spring is more resistant to magnetic fields and offers higher precision. Like every Rolex, the Yacht-Master 37 is a Superlative Chronometer, meaning it deviates from the reference time by no more than +/- 2 seconds per day.

Rolex offers the 37-mm Yacht-Master in various materials, including Everose gold, Rolesor, and Rolesium. The Rolesium edition has the reference number 268622 and changes hands for about 12,500 USD new and 11,500 USD pre-owned. The Yacht-Master Chocolate ref. 268621 is particularly popular among Rolex fans. It features a chocolate brown dial and a stainless steel and Everose gold case. This version requires an investment of between 12,500 and 13,500 USD.

If you'd prefer the 18-karat Everose gold model on an Oysterflex bracelet, you should plan to spend anywhere from 21,000 to 23,500 USD depending on its condition. However, the most exclusive 37-mm edition is the ref. 268655 with a diamond-studded dial. This watch has an official list price of 41,000 USD.


How much does a Yacht-Master II cost?

Those who appreciate the appeal of the Rolex Daytona but could do without the long wait times and astronomical prices should take a close look at the Yacht-Master II. This watch is built for life on the water, though its timer is also practical on land. In fact, it is the world's first mechanical watch to feature a programmable countdown with a memory. Previously, this function was only available in quartz-powered timepieces.

Unlike most traditional races, regatta races don't begin at the starting line. Instead, the racers wait near the starting line for the start signal. The Yacht-Master II's regatta chronograph function enables racers to get over the start line as quickly as possible after the signal.

Taking all of its functions into consideration, the Yacht-Master II is one of Rolex's most complicated watches. With a diameter of 44 mm, it's also one of Rolex's largest - only the 44-mm Sea-Dweller Deepsea can compare.

You can choose from a wide variety of materials, including stainless steel, yellow gold, a two-tone stainless steel and Everose gold model, and another edition in white gold and platinum. The entry-level model is the ref. 116680 in stainless steel. It costs roughly 18,500 USD new and 16,500 USD pre-owned. You can find the two-tone edition in stainless steel and Everose gold under the reference number 116681. This regatta chronograph demands anywhere from 20,500 to 23,500 USD.

If you like the model in 18-karat yellow gold, be sure to have between 37,500 and 41,000 USD on hand. A mint-condition watch in white gold and platinum (ref. 116689) costs only slightly more at 42,500 USD. However, at about 29,000 USD, you can save a significant sum by purchasing a pre-owned timepiece.

Features of the Yacht-Master II

  • Regatta chronograph with timer function for regatta races
  • The world's first wristwatch with a programmable countdown and mechanical memory
  • 44-mm case
  • Available in stainless steel, yellow gold, or as a two-tone watch in stainless steel and Everose gold or platinum and white gold.

The Yacht-Master as an Investment

Like most Rolexes, the Yacht-Master tends to retain its value over time. This is true of both new and pre-owned watches. Their prices are largely stable, though they may vary from time to time. Models with six-digit reference numbers from before 2019 have performed especially well recently. Take the Everose gold Yacht-Master 40 ref. 116655 with an Oysterflex bracelet and caliber 3135, for example. Its price went from less than 22,500 USD in 2017 to almost 28,000 USD in late 2019, eventually settling at 26,000 USD by mid-2020.

The 40-mm Yacht-Master Chocolate ref. 116621 has also increased in value in recent months. In late 2017, this watch cost about 13,000 USD in mint condition. As of mid-2020, it demanded roughly 14,500 USD. Even though these timepieces have performed well, they are still more affordable than their predecessors with the caliber 3235. In summary, you can save yourself several thousand dollars by sacrificing a few hours of power reserve.


Design Details

The Yacht-Master's design closely resembles that of the Submariner - from the celebrated Oyster case and the three-piece link Oyster bracelet to the crown protector and the date display with a Cyclops lens at 3 o'clock. Even the hour and minute hands and index markers are reminiscent of those on the Submariner.

However, if you look more closely, you will notice subtle differences. The Yacht-Master's inscription and second hand are red, the crown guard is a bit bigger, and its case's edges are rounded. The most noticeable difference is the bezel: The polished 60-minute graduations are raised, standing out against the matte background. In addition, its bezel can turn in both directions, while the Submariner's cannot.

Aside from the various case size and material options, there are also several dials available. Traditional black dials create a contrast against the lighter index markers, which glow blue at night. Dark blue dials emphasize the watch's relationship to water and catch the eye immediately, jumping into view from far away. Rolex also offers dials made of mother of pearl or platinum.
