Rolex has been making amazingly high quality Replica watches since it was established in 1905. They are known as the benchmark in performance, style and class among timepiece collectors still to this day. Rolex has dedicated themselves to the quality of each watch produced and does all the production in house rather than choose to outsource certain elements to make it cheaper on them. The style and dedication to the craftsmanship of each timepiece are both key elements as to why the Rolex brand is still number one after all these years.
Today we will be reviewing the Rolex Replica Yacht-Master for those sailing and yachting enthusiast out there in search of a good timepiece. Rolex first introduced the Yacht-Master in 1992 and it quickly became on one their most popular Replica watches among collectors and those looking for a quality boating watch. The Rolex Yacht-Master is one of the best designed and exclusive models that Rolex has to offer. Take a look at some of the important pros and very few cons to consider before buying this watch.
Our Rolex Replica Yachtmaster Review
In true form for any Rolex watch, the Yacht-Master is a pillar of their undeniable quality and beautiful appearance. This timepiece is sleek, sporty and distinguished with its platinum unidirectional bezel and bracelet band made of stainless steel and/or gold. The band links are solid rather than hollow like so many other watches and they are not prone to getting scratches. Case sizes available in 40, 35 and 29 mm and made of a combination of steel, gold or platinum. The construction in combination with the durable materials used to construct the watch make it waterproof, crushes proof and give it a long wearable life if it is cared for properly.
The analog face is set in a nice white dial with the best luminosity out of most other Rolex’s. The Replica watch hands are luminous as well at the dots for the hour markers making it possible to see in nearly any lighting. The watch face is protected by nearly unbreakable anti-reflective sapphire crystal that is super clear and bright to allow you to see your timepiece all the time. The date is conveniently displayed at the 3 o’clock position for those of us that are always asking what the date is.
The Rolex Replica Yacht-Master is water resistant up to 330 feet with a Triplock crown for triple the waterproof protection. We really love that it has an officially certified Swiss chronometer for countdown and timing purposes. It really makes this the absolute perfect timepiece for sailors that are racing their boats. Of course you we can’t forget that it is an automatic movement watch and will never need to be wound. Rolex Replica produces one of the finest (if not the finest) 3135 jewel caliber engine and that is what keeps this watch going.
There are only a few drawbacks to the Rolex Replica Yacht-Master because it is truly a fantastic timepiece. We would like to see a different clasp in place of the standard one that comes stock on all of the Replica watches. It is a functional clasp, but it just does not feel sturdy enough for such a solid timepiece. You can replace the clasp on your own through the manufacturer at a reasonable cost, but when you are already paying so much for a watch an extra expense seems a bit unnecessary.
The weight of this watch is impossible not to notice as it is really heavy on your wrist leaving you no doubt that it is there. Now we know that is to be expected from a watch that is made of stainless steel, platinum and gold. It is also not meant as a dive watch, which we find unfortunate since it has a lot of the features needed for a great dive watch and the cost is a little steep to have to buy another watch for a different water sport.
Lastly, we can’t help but wince at the price of this Replica watch. It will put a pretty sizable dent in your bank account, so be really certain that this is the watch for you and that you intend to use it for…well for forever because this bad boy is expensive. We also suggest that you keep in mind that it only has a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty that only covers mechanical or quality defects. This obviously means that if it is broken somehow or lost, you would be out a pretty good chunk of change and watch less.
Who It’s Best For
The Rolex Yacht-Master is really the perfect watch for boating enthusiast and is designed for professional sailors in particular. The chronograph is one of the main elements that make it ideal for sailors. The chronograph features a programmable countdown with a mechanical memory, which is important to time certain things when sailing or to time a race if you are a competitive sailor. It is the first of its kind for an analog watch and has impeccable synchronization ability that is crucial for the start of a yacht or sailing race.
This Replica watch is also excellent for collectors that can appreciate what an excellent timepiece the Rolex Replica Yacht-Master is. As we mentioned, any watch that comes from the Rolex brand is of the utmost quality and is thoroughly tested to ensure that this is the case. The quality of materials and the time spent handcrafting each watch is what is ultimately responsible to the high pricing. If you can afford the price tag and you love an exceptional watch, then this one is for you.
All in all this is a really exceptional watch that offers everything that you expect from a Rolex. The features and quality far surpass any of its competitors by leaps and bounds. If you can swing the price, we say go for it and you won’t be disappointed. It is a Replica watch that will last for a really long time as long as it is well cared for and any needed maintenance is kept up.
