The Yacht-Master is an elevated version of the Submariner, offering a similar feature set in the form of luminous Mercedes hands and hour markers and a 60-minute bezel. The case also offers a similar 40mm diameter, only now it's flanked by polished and tapered lugs. The case also features a decreased waterproofness of up to 100 meters and showcases a sand-blasted rotatable bezel in place of the Submariner's unidirectional bezel. The Yacht-Master wears on a flat-link Oyster bracelet and runs on a perpetual movement. The ref. 16628 is the yellow gold model that debuted with the line in the early 1990s. Its use of satin and polished 18 karat yellow gold creates a bold statement piece that anyone would be proud to wear on their wrist.
