Whereas replica omega Speedmaster Professional watches the Submariner (and Sea-Dweller) were/are meant to be tool watches, the Yacht-Master should breathe pure luxury. This probably explains the waterresistancy of only 100 meters, instead of 300 meters (or more).Anyway, it wasnt until 2005 when Rolex introduced the Yacht-Master rolesor (yes, this is the Rolex word for gold/steel combinations).
The full size version goes by the reference of 16623 and is available with a few dial combinations. White, mother of pearl (MOP), blue, champagne, brown and silver.The lunette is either gold or platinum on all versions. There is no inlay, the whole rotating bezel system is solid platinum or gold. Scratching or bumping replica omega Speedmaster Professional watchesit, is therefor an expensive activity. However, the nice thing about the Yacht-Master watch if you like them anyway is that they are quite unsalable for list price (approx 7200 euro for the Rolesium version and 7100 euro for the Rolesor version, approx. 19000 euro for the solid gold version). In general, Rolex collectors arent too fond of them because of the bling factor and prefer the tool watch models like the Sub, GMT or Sea-Dweller. They do not want to pay the premium over the tool watch models just for the shiny platinum or gold for example. Why spend 7200 euro on a watch that is basically the same as the 4500 euro model, except for some shiny and platinum accents (lunette and dial).Because of this, it is replica omega Speedmaster Professional watchesquite interesting to get a Yacht-Master for almost the same price as a stainless steel sports Rolex. Grey market or slightly used, the Yacht-Master ref.16622 and ref.16623 can be had for 4500-5000 in good condition and I have seen them for less for the first production years. I got my ref.16622 from 2004 (box, s, original bill) in 2007 for a great price and found myself wearing it almost daily (and still do). The bend lugs replica omega Speedmaster Professional watches and flat belly (contrary to my Sea-Dweller) makes it a perfect daily watch.So, in short:1992 Introduction of the Yacht-Master ref. 16628 (18kt gold)1994 Midsize and ladys size models in 18kt gold.1999 Introduction of the ref.16622 Rolesium model (stainless steel/platinum)2005 Introduction of the ref. 16623 Rolesor model (stainless steel/gold)
