It took a while for the Yacht-Master to find its purpose. It was initially developed as a "dressed up" variation of the immensely successful Submariner. The brand was worried about how collectors would receive it, and it was ultimately tabled for the next several years before being rebranded and released in 1992 as the Yacht-Master. With elegantly tapered lugs, a sand-blasted precious metal bezel, and a highly visible dial, the Yacht-Master was right at home among the prestigious world of professional sailing. Its design perfectly suits the nautical lifestyle, offering a depth rating of up to 100 meters, a 60-minute regatta count down bezel, and an Oyster bracelet secured by an Oysterlock clasp that won't pop open. The used Rolex 16622 is the Rolesium variation of the line that pairs stainless steel with luxurious platinum and is highly sought-after by entry-level collectors who seek an affordable precious metal tool watch.
