Rolex introduced a small number of Cosmograph Yachtmasters in 1965. However, the Yacht-Master as we know it (Ref. 16628) was introduced in 1992. Since then, there have been a number of references (16623, 16622, 126622). Based on the Rolex Submariner, the Yacht-Master shares a lot of similarities with the world’s most popular dive watch. However, the Yacht-Master is a dressier option with more elegant finishing. It sacrifices some of the Submariner’s dive-focused spec for slimmer dimensions.
