Comparing with other collections of Rolex, the Yacht-Master seems to be very young which was launched in 1992. The Explorer was launched in 1953 and Submariner was released in 1954. Daytona was launched in 1963. Sea-Dweller was in 1967.
As the representative sport watch of Rolex, the Submariner has attracted numerous loyal fans. But till 1990, Rolex found that the competition of diving watches became more and more fierce. So Rolex began to develop a perfect fake Rolex that can demonstrate the superior and luxurious positioning. It is Yacht-Master.
From the name you will know that the positioning of Yacht-Master is quite different from Submariner. The Submariner is more suitable for underwater worker while Yacht-Master is more in line with professionals such as captain.

While in 2007, the gold bracelet Yacht-Master II ref.116688 was released. It was equipped with Cal.4161.
