The highlight of the Yacht-Master collection at Rolex this year was the new 40 mm steel and Everose gold model, with a “Rolesor” case, which simply means a combination of 904L steel and 18K Everose gold.
With that said, Rolex also quietly introduced a new dial on the steel and platinum (Rolesium) Yacht-Master as well. The new dial is dark rhodium (gray) and includes an aqua-blue lacquered seconds hand and printed text that reads “Yacht-Master” in the same shade of blue, which is notably similar to the color scheme of this new Oyster Perpetual that debuted at Baselworld 2015. Also, worth noting is that this gray dial platinum and steel Yacht-Master comes in both 40 mm and 37 mm variants.
Despite the fact that the new steel and rose-gold Yacht-Master with the chocolate dial (Ref. 116621) has received the most attention, the steel and platinum model with a dark gray dial is quite striking as well.
The retail price is $11,550 for the 40 mm steel and platinum Yacht-Master with a gray dial (Ref. 116622), and $11,050 for the 37 mm version (Ref. 268622).
