Low-profile luxury, new Rolex yacht

To be honest, I generally don’t like to talk about replica Rolex watches. Some people will say, “Look, it’s so-and-so’s Rolex again. But on the other hand, Rolex is a watch that I usually wear, and recently I’ve been wearing it most often, which is a yacht. Today, I would like to talk to you about the new Rolex Yacht 126622.

When I was first introduced to watches, the yacht was a watch that I really liked. The old players all know, at that time years, Rolex or normal market, not expensive (referring to the actual price), and not rare. The yacht on the market at that time, mainly 16622 and 116622, with a silver disk red second hand color scheme (now). 126622 generation, which is no longer available in this colorway), the yacht is more niche than the Blackwater, and with the platinum rings, it’s more Luxury, I prefer. At that time, I always thought to myself that I’d better buy a yacht sometime. As a result, over the years, Rolex has been playing with it, but I never got into a yacht, until this 126622.

The Yachts are a relatively “new” series of Rolex sports watches (excluding the Yachts II, which is a countdown watch). The Yacht Rolex collection was launched in 1992, the first model being the 16628, a 40mm model using the 3135 movement. , is an all gold sport watch. Compared to the more professional and tooled-up watercraft, the yacht was a luxury route from the start. Unfortunately, the original all-gold yacht did not catch fire. Rolex yachts really made a name for themselves and became widely known, starting with the launch of the steel-hulled yacht 16622 in 1999. The steel-hulled yacht, although the case and bracelet are steel, was a hit because of the use of a platinum bezel and platinum dial. And a few years back (2015, I think), a yacht with a rose gold bezel and rose gold links was introduced (116621/) (126621). A distinction is created with the Rolex Water Ghost through the use of platinum and rose gold.

The most important feature of the steel case Yachts 126622 is the platinum bezel. Platinum is the most valuable precious metal among watches. Because of the difficulty of processing, so the public price of platinum watches, than gold, rose gold, white gold, etc.. The platinum bezel of a yacht has a satin matte body, but the numerals and indices, which are similarly embossed, protrude from the bezel. The protruding numerals and indices are polished and have a matte bezel backing that is very bright and conspicuous in the light. Also, even on the gold yachts with ceramic bezels, the bezel scale numbers are raised (excluding the countdown yacht II) and the bezel It can be rotated in both directions. In comparison, the bezel scales and numbers on each model of the Rolex Water Ghost are slightly recessed. While there are many similarities in appearance between the Yacht and the Water Ghost, the bezel is the biggest difference in appearance.

The Yacht’s crown also uses Rolex’s triple waterproofing mechanism with three locks that pop out when the crown is unlocked, as well as Sturdy rubber rings for waterproofing, but the yacht is waterproof to 100 meters.
