Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226659

$27,800.00
$27,800.00
Over the years, the Yacht-Master has appeared in a mid-size 35mm men’s version and even a 29mm ladies’ model (1994). Today it exists in three sizes: 42, 40, and 37mm. It wasn’t until 1999, however, that the Yacht-Master got the wind in its sails with a steel case and platinum bezel model (ref. 16622) called Rolesium, which is still strong today. By 2005, two-tone Yacht-Masters joined the line-up, and in 2015, the Everose (ref.116655) introduced two major aesthetic updates: the bezel featuring a black ceramic insert and a daring black rubber ‘Oysterflex’ strap.

Rolex was founded in 1905 in London by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis. The company began as a modest endeavor, assembling watches from imported parts. However, Rolex soon grew into an internationally renowned brand through the great business strides that the young Hans made.

The Rolex name is inextricably linked to the ubiquity of the modern wristwatch, from humble beginnings to epitomizing achievement and prestige. The crown has transcended film, literature, fashion, culture, and history, worn by record-breakers, presidents, and fictional characters.
