Any Swiss replica Rolex fan worth his or her salt knows that the Submariner is the champion of the dive watch category, a lifelong companion for underwater adventures and your go-to model if you want to hint at a sporty, active lifestyle. However, what if you are looking for an AAA quality fake Rolex that can handle more than a splash but hint at the luxury sailing yacht you’ve got docked in the marina? In this case, the Yacht-Master has got you covered, a tooled-down and dressed-up nautical sports watch that has finally detached itself from the sporty Submariner.
Marking a first for the 42mm edition of the cheap replica Rolex Yacht-Master, the latest reference introduced at Watches and Wonders 2022 now comes in a yellow gold case. Combined with the black Oysterflex bracelet and the sleek black ceramic insert on the bezel, the elegant top copy Rolex Yacht-Master 42 reference 226658 is more in line with the high-end nautical spirit of the collection.
A “CLASS A” YACHT
Since Hans Wilsdorf introduced the Oyster in 1926, Swiss made replica Rolex and waterproof watches have been synonymous. From the iconic Submariner to professional deep-sea divers like the Sea-Dweller, the sea and all things maritime are a natural habitat for Rolex’s robust tool watches. The perfect fake Rolex also enjoys a long-standing relationship with the world of sailing and has partnered with select yacht clubs around the world since the early 1950s. As the sponsor of prestigious regattas like the exciting super clone Rolex Fastnet Race, the Crown even developed a watch, the Yacht-Master II, with a specific regatta countdown function for competitive sailors.
The introduction of the luxury fake Rolex Yacht-Master in 1992 surprised and then failed to engage Rolex fans. It certainly looked like a Submariner, but it had been tooled down and dressed up in a solid gold case, characteristics that seemed at odds with the professional dive watch vocation of the Submariner. Although the similarities with the Submariner were evident, the water-resistance of the Rolex Yacht-Master replica for sale was reduced from 300 to 100 metres and the luminous dot was removed from the bezel.
Without the useful regatta countdown function of the Rolex Yacht-Master II fake online UK and its lower water-resistance, the Yacht-Master was positioned as a luxurious nautical watch – and the lifestyle associated with high-end nautical sports – designed to catch the eye of yacht owners, not deckhands or divers.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Obviously, the name chosen for the Yacht-Master wasn’t a random choice – nothing is random at best quality replica Rolex – and clearly speaks to the potential profile of a yacht owner, not a deckhand.
Over the years the luxury replica Rolex 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. However, it wasn’t until 1999 that the Yacht-Master really got the wind in its sails with a more contemporary monochrome colour scheme provided by a steel case and platinum Rolesium bezel (ref. 16622) and Oyster bracelet. Then in 2015, the Everose (ref.116655) introduced two major aesthetic updates: the bezel featuring a black ceramic insert and an unexpected black rubber Oysterflex strap introduced on board the AAA fake Rolex Yacht-Master and now used on the Sky-Dweller and Cosmograph Daytona.
YELLOW GOLD CASE
Sharing the same specifications as the white gold model, the latest ref. 226658 differs in just one aspect: its solid 18k yellow gold case. Crafted from a solid block of 18k gold, the middle case is polished and the overall impression is one of elegance. Despite being the largest Rolex Yacht-Master replica Paypal, its tapered lugs and relatively slim height mean the watch sits broad and flat on the wrist and works well on smaller wrists (photographed here on Brice’s 16.5mm wrist).
The knurled yellow gold edge means the bezel has a good grip, and the hermetically screwed-down caseback with its fine fluting ensures that only Swiss movement replica Rolex watchmakers can access the movement. Like all Yacht-Masters, the case is endowed with a Triplock winding crown and the dial protected by a sapphire crystal with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock to consult the date.
THE GREAT OYSTERFLEX BRACELET
The matte black elastomer strap that has become a distinctive feature of the cheap fake Rolex Yacht-Master replicates the robustness and reliability of a metal bracelet with its hidden infrastructure of flexible and curved metal blades. It is, in our opinion, one of the most comfortable straps on the market today. The Oysterlock folding clasp in 18k yellow gold is fitted with a Glidelock extension system allowing for adjustments of 15mm without tools.
