Latest Vintage Piece

2005 Yacht-Master 16623 40mm $11,900.00 CAD. e13574

 The 40mm Yacht-Master is a watch that bridges the gap between the uber purposeful stainless-steel Submariner model and the dressier DateJust series. Yes, it has a timer bezel but it is made from premium 18 karat yellow gold with embossed/polished indexes and rotates in two directions for easy use. Its Oyster bracelet has polished centre links that too are made from 18 karat gold compared to the all brushed stainless-steel bracelet of the basic Submariner. The Yacht-Master has a milder water-resistance depth rating of 100 meters compared to 300 for the Submariner, yet they share the same overachieving triplock crown. There are a few other subtle differences in the case and bracelet, but it is the dial that makes the Yacht-Master more individual. Our latest estate Rolex features a very unusual dial. Nothing strange about a clean white face but it is the glossy black markers are very different. While offering amazing contrast by day, in the dark they are completely useless. I always thought this was a strange thing for Rolex to do until we actually looked really close at the dial. Rolex have cleverly blended triangular, luminous, plots directly on the glossy white dial. The markers go completely undetected until the light grows dim. In the dark the 8 reference points glow along with the large 18 karat gold frame marine style hands allowing for quick time interpretation in all lighting conditions. I cannot think of another Rolex with glowing indexes found inboard of the hour markers. I have gained a new respect for this watch since seeing it in the dark. The watch is in excellent condition for 15 years of age. The 12-link bracelet exhibits little sag and no stretch. The fiendishly difficult to refinish sandblasted/polished bezel looks like new. The watch shows few signs of use in its freshly polished state. The same Rolex calibre 3135 movement found in the Submariner serves duty in the Yacht-Master. It is working flawlessly after a recent service, keeping excellent time within chronometer tolerances. We are pleased to offer a no charge one-year warranty for the new owner. This gently used Rolex is estate priced at $11,900.00 CAD. Stock #e13574.
