Was kostet eigentlich eine Revision meiner Rolex?

Rolex Revision: Das sollten Sie beim “TÜV” Ihrer Rolex beachten

Eine Revision gehört zu einer Rolex wie der regelmäßige Service zum Auto. Beide sichern die Funktionstüchtigkeit des jeweiligen Geräts, denn beide funktionieren mit beweglichen Teilen, die geschmiert werden müssen oder sich auch unter Verschleiß abnutzen können. Bei der mechanischen Uhr geschieht das zwar im viel geringeren Maße als beim Auto, trotzdem empfehlen Uhrenmarken und Juweliere je nach Marke eine Uhrenrevision meist in Intervallen von fünf bis zehn Jahren.

Hier zu lange zu warten kann sich auch negativ auswirken: Die meisten Besitzer einer mechanischen Uhr geben ihre Uhr erst in die Revision wenn die Uhr einen Schaden abbekommen hat oder sich die Ganggenauigkeit stark verschlechtert hat. Wer auf solche Mängel wartet, kann zwar die Intervalle hinauszögern, bezahlt es aber eventuell mit erhöhten Reparaturkosten durch eine Abnutzung, die durch regelmäßige Wartung nicht so gravierend geworden wäre. Verschiedene Rolex-Uhren haben unterschiedliche Uhrwerke, und sie sind alle unterschiedlich kompliziert. Einige Uhrwerke sind sehr einfach und haben nicht viele Teile. Andere hingegen, wie die Daytona und die Sky-Dweller, sind komplizierte Uhrwerke, die aus mehr beweglichen Teilen bestehen. Lesen sie auch: Rolex der Zukunft?

Was wird bei einer Rolex Revision gemacht?

Rolex Revision

Warum ist eine Uhrenrevision also nötig? Uhren mit mechanischem Uhrwerk sind hochkomplizierte Apparate und bestehen aus einer Vielzahl mechanischer Teile. Je komplizierter die Uhr, desto mehr bewegliche Teile sind es. Damit sie auch über eine lange Zeit ihre Arbeit präzise verrichten können, brauchen sie einen regelmäßigen Check-up.

Wenn die Funktion der Uhr gestört ist, sie beispielsweise langsamer oder schneller läuft, sollte eine Uhrenrevision lieber schnell gemacht werden. Es wäre nämlich durchaus möglich, dass das Uhrwerk verschmutzt ist oder nicht mehr genug Schmieröl vorhanden ist, was zu Verschleiß und nachhaltigeren Schäden führen kann. Also geht man lieber früher denn später zu einer der über 140 vertraglich von Rolex lizensierten Servicestellen in Deutschland. Erstmal wird die Uhr bei der Wartung komplett auseinander genommen und gründlichst gereinigt. Dazu wird jedes Einzelteil gesäubert und Teile, die beschädigt oder verschlissen sind, werden ausgetauscht.

Das betrifft alle mechanischen, zum Funktionieren der Uhr unverzichtbaren Teile. Des weiteren wird bei der Revision Mithilfe eines elektronischen Messgerätes eine Feinregulierung der Uhr vorgenommen und die Lager der mechanischen Teile werden neu geschmiert. Je nach Uhrenmodell werden mit zusätzlichen Prüfungsverfahren die Wasserdichtigkeit bei Taucheruhren geprüft oder bei Fliegeruhren ist eine Druckprüfung Standard.

Was kostet eine Revision bei Rolex?

Die Kosten hängen von der Art der erforderlichen Wartung und vom Zustand der Uhr ab. Vor jeder Wartung wird der Zustand der Uhr von Rolex-zertifizierten Uhrmachern bewertet und man erhält einen Kostenvoranschlag der im Detail die zu erwartenden Kosten auflistet. Wenn sich die Uhr in ausgezeichnetem Zustand befindet, wird der Uhrmacher das Uhrwerk lediglich warten, einölen und für viele weitere Jahre einsatzbereit machen.

Wenn es sich aber um eine alte Rolex handelt bei der viele Teile des Uhrwerks ausgewechselt werden müssen, kann es um einiges teurer werden. Der normale Service kann bei einer einfachen Datejust etwa ab 600 Euro kosten. Darin enthalten sind Revision des Uhrwerkes mit Austausch von Verschleißteilen; Aufarbeiten von Gehäuse und Metallarmband; Ersetzen von Dichtungen sowie gegebenenfalls Federstegen und Kronentubus.

Bei komplizierteren Uhrwerken liegt ein Service dann bei ab 900 Euro. Sollten in Ihrer Rolex Edelsteine oder Edelmetalle verbaut sein, steigen die Kosten natürlich auch dementsprechend. Bei einer Revision können auch Gebrauchsspuren wie beispielsweise Kratzer am Gehäuse durch Polieren entfernt werden. Ob man das aber möchte, liegt im eigenen Ermessen. Manche gesuchte Vintage-Modelle von Rolex sind in ihrem unpolierten Zustand beispielsweise mehr wert als im überholten Zustand. Ein verblasstes Tropical Dial Zifferblatt, für das man auf dem Vintage Markt einen deftigen Aufpreis bezahlt, lässt man natürlich um keinen Preis durch ein neues ersetzen. Alles andere ist aber auch Geschmacksfrage, ob man lieber eine nagelneu aussehende Uhr oder eine mit sichtbar gelebtem Leben am Handgelenk trägt.

Wie lange dauert eine Revision?

Die Wartung einer Rolex kann zwischen 4 und 6 Wochen dauern. Der Zeitraum hängt von dem Zustand  und Alter Ihrer Rolex ab. Generell empfehlen wir Ihnen: Suchen Sie einen von Rolex zertifizierten Uhrmacher für die Revision Ihrer Rolex auf. 

Wann sollte man eine Revision bei Rolex machen?

Ihre Rolex sollte mindestens alle zehn Jahre gewartet werden. Aber es gibt auch Besitzer, die ihre Rolex seit 20 Jahren tragen und sie nie gewartet haben, weil sie immer noch perfekt läuft. Nach so langer Zeit kann es trotzdem ratsam sein, eine Rolex zu warten, unabhängig davon, ob Sie irgendwelche Probleme mit ihr feststellen oder nicht, denn unweigerlich trocknen die Öle und Schmiermittel aus und verursachen mehr Verschleiß am Uhrwerk, da die Reibung zunimmt. Letztendlich kann dies dazu führen, dass der Service langfristig teurer wird. Genauso wie die Wartungsintervalle bei Ihrem PKW davon abhängen, wie viel Sie Auto fahren, hängt das Wartungsintervall davon ab, wie oft Sie Ihre Rolex-Uhr tragen und wie stark Sie sie beanspruchen. Es ist ähnlich wie bei einem tollen Auto. Wer seinen Wagen wirklich liebt, schickt ihn lieber einmal öfter in die Werkstatt. (Auch interessant: Die 10 teuersten Uhren der Welt )

Rolex Kundendienst Inspektion und Reparatur

von Gisbert L. Brunner | 12.02.2021

REGELMÄSSIGER SERVICE ERHÄLT DIE FREUDe

Im Zusammenhang mit   Servicebedarf von Rolex-Uhren  bzw. dem Ablauf  eines Rolex Service   kursieren seit Jahren teilweise kuriose Ideen. Eine davon besagt, dass sich die Intervalle wegen der rundum dichten Oyster-Schale auf zehn oder noch mehr Jahre ausdehnen lassen. Manche prahlen, dass ihre Rolex seit zwei Jahrzehnten noch keine Werkstatt gesehen habe und immer noch einwandfrei läuft. Das mag alles sein. Aber wer so denkt und handelt, spart bei der  Inspektion einer klassischen   Rolex   Datejust   kurzfristig etwa 650 € , bei einer   Rolex   GMT-Master II etwa   700 €, bei einem   Rolex  Daytona-Chronographen   circa 800 € und bei den technisch anspruchsvollsten Modellen wie   Rolex   Yacht-Master II   und   Rolex  Sky Dweller   rund 950 €. Das sind die gegenwärtigen Preise einer offiziellen  Rolex Inspektion .

Wer sich regelmäßigen Service spart, spart definitiv an der falschen Stelle. Dann nämlich wird die Angelegenheit auf längere Sicht deutlich teurer als jenes Pflegequantum, welches man einer mechanischen Uhr Im Zuge eines regelmäßigen Service gegen angemessene Bezahlung zugestehen sollte. Im Extremfall kann es bei nicht erfolgter Inspektion und Wartung  nämlich zum Totalschaden einer Uhr kommen, der im Extremfall auch den Kauf einer neuen Uhr verlangen kann.

Regelmäßiger Service hält eine Uhr jung, zuverlässig und präzise

Kundendienst

Beim Automobil gehören   Ölwechsel und Servicearbeiten  in genau definierten und vom Bordcomputer angezeigten Abständen zu den unumstößlichen Selbstverständlichkeiten und werden nicht hinterfragt. Dabei sind Uhren im Gegensatz zum Auto, welches die meiste Zeit irgendwo parkend verbringt, ununterbrochen für ihre Besitzerinnen und Besitzer im Betrieb. Ihr  Schwing- und Hemmungssystem  leistet echte Schwerstarbeit. Bei Rolex sind bei einem Uhrwerk  stündlich 28.800 Unruh-Halbschwingungen  seit langem als Standard. Ergo vollzieht das Räderwerk einer Uhr Tag für Tag 691.200 kleine Schritte .

Rolex Kaliber 3235 Breguetspirale

Der Gangregler einer Rolex oszilliert im Normalfall 24 Stunden am Tag. Übers Jahr kommen so stattliche 255.288.000 Schwingungen und Kraftimpulse zusammen.

Bereits nach vier Jahren ist die Milliardengrenze überschritten. Trotzdem liegt die  Ganggenauigkeit  einer Rolex Uhr im Allgemeinen jenseits der 99,99 Prozent.

Rolex Kundendienst Emfpang

Rund um den Globus gibt es mehr als 900 Rolex Serviceateliers. Überall arbeiten speziell geschulte Fachkräfte mit modernster Gerätschaft.

Rolex Service

Eines der weltweiten, aufs das Modernste ausgestattete   Rolex Serviceatelier   findet sich in   Köln . Dort residiert auch die Deutschland-Dependance der 1905 von   Hans Wilsdorf   gegründeten Traditionsmanufaktur. Und deren extreme Qualitätsansprüche gleichen in der Stadt am Rhein denen im Stammsitz an der Rhône oder beispielsweise in New York, Toronto, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Sao Paulo, Athen, Brüssel, Paris, London, Lissabon, Madrid, Mailand, Johannesburg, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Bombay, Seoul, Singapur, Tokio, Nassau quasi wie ein Ei dem anderen. Im Zusammenhang mit der   Wartung von Rolex-Armbanduhren   lautet das Rolex Motto schlicht und einfach Perfektion. Seit jeher sucht Rolex vom ersten Federstrich bis zur Endkontrolle Vollkommenheit – im Zuge jenes Ganzen, welches mehr ist als die Summe seiner Teile.  

Rolex-Service-Uhrenkosmos-2021

Ob in Köln oder in allen anderen Rolex Niederlassungen - der Rolex Anspruch nach perfektem Service ist weltweit der gleiche.

Beanspruchung

Im täglichen Leben dürfen die unterschiedlichen Tragegewohnheiten und die daraus folgende Beanspruchung niemals unter den Tisch gekehrt werden. Ein schonender Umgang am Schreibtisch strapaziert eine Armbanduhr logischer Weise deutlich weniger als das Tragen einer Uhr bei starken Belastungen, etwa dem regelmäßiges  Golfspielen . Dank robuster Bauweise und großzügig dimensionierten Werken ist dies zwar nicht zu empfehlen, macht einer Rolex Oyster letztendlich jedoch herzlich wenig aus.   

Tiger Woods Rolex Testimonial

Profigolfer wie Tiger Woods tragen beim Turnierspiel keine Armbanduhr. Eine Rolex Oyster übersteht jedoch selbst härteste Abschläge.

Hingegen zählt etwa das   Downhill mit dem Mountainbike   wegen der vielen kleine Stöße hoher Intensität zu den weitaus größeren Torturen für ein mechanisches Uhrwerk. Aber auch hier muss eine Rolex Oyster keineswegs passen. 

Obwohl Rolex unangefochtener Pionier der rundum dichten Armbanduhr ist, setzen   Saunabesuche oder Wechselbäder zwischen brennender Sonne und kühlem Nass   den Dichtungen selbst einer hochbelastbaren   Oyster-Schale   erheblich zu. All diese Punkte gilt es zu bedenken, wenn nach einem Zeitraum von ungefähr sechs Jahren ein gründlicher Service ansteht.

SCHULUNG UND QUALIFIKATION 

Rolex   betrachtet den Dienst am Kunden übrigens als echte   Serviceleistung . Alle Preise sind kostengerecht kalkuliert. Natürlich möchte niemand beim   Kundendienst   draufzahlen. Andererseits lassen sich mit dieser Art Service aber auch keine großen Gewinne erzielen, denn der Aufwand ist hoch. Einschließlich der zugehörigen Administration arbeiten im   Kölner Serviceatelier von Rolex   mehr als siebzig Menschen. Vor ihrem Einsatz am tickenden Objekt haben ausnahmslos alle Uhrmacherinnen und Uhrmacher ein mehrmonatiges   Qualifizierungstraining   hinter sich gebracht. Die jüngeren unter ihnen konnten vom 2018 eingeweihten   Genfer Schulungszentrum   profitieren. Dieses versteht sich als zukunfts­orientierte Austausch­plattform, das auf der Grundlage neuester pädagogischer und techno­logischer Errungen­schaften arbeitet. Mit dem so genannten   Watchmaking Training   offeriert Rolex in seinen weltweiten Niederlassungen eine eineinhalb­jährige Ausbildung.

Rolex Service 4 (C) Rolex

Jüngere Service-Uhrmacher bei Rolex konnten sich im Genfer Schulungszentrum qualifizieren

Während besagter  Schulungsmaßnahmen  erfahren Uhrmacher alle Details zu den aktuellen, aber auch älteren Kalibern. Sie kennen das breite Spektrum der anerkannten Stärken, wissen aber auch um jene Punkte, denen später ihre besondere Aufmerksamkeit gelten muss. Zum Training gehören natürlich auch detaillierte Informationen, welche Teile grundsätzlich auszutauschen und welche Schmiermittel bei den verschiedenen Kalibern wo zu verwenden sind.

Schmierplan für die Rolex Kaliber 3035 und 3055

Für jedes Rolex-Kaliber, auch die nicht mehr verbauten gibt es exakte Service-Unterlagen. Auf diese Weise bleibt nichts dem Zufall überlassen.

Anschließend können diese Fachkräfte jedes Kaliber reparieren und dabei ohne Einschränkung auf alles zurückgreifen, was es zur Wartung des überschaubaren Spektrums an Rolex-Uhren braucht. Für mindestens 35 Jahre nach der Ausmusterung eines Modells sichert Rolex die Verfügbarkeit von Teilen und Arbeits­leistungen zu. Auf diese Weise leistet das Unternehmen seinen unterstützenden Beitrag zur erwarteten Langlebigkeit.

Rolex Restaurierung

Wer eine  betagte Rolex  sein Eigen nennt, erfährt in der Genfer Rolex Restaurierungs­werkstatt umfassende Hilfestellung. Die dort tätigen Uhrmacherinnen und Uhrmacher haben sich auf Sammler­stücke spezialisiert. Bei ihrer Arbeit können sie auch auf das Archiv der Manufaktur zurückgreifen.

Sofern es an Ersatzteilen mangelt, können diese originalgetreu angefertigt werden . Die Rückkehr ans Handgelenk erfolgt mit einem speziellen Etui und einer Dokumentation der vollbrachten Leistungen.

Rolex Kundendienst

In jedem der weltweit tätigen Rolex Servicecenter lagern mehr als eine Million Ersatzteile. Langes Suchen gibt es deshalb nicht. Auf Knopfdruck ist das Gesuchte kurzfristig verfügbar. Übrigens denkt die Manufaktur schon bei der Konzeption und Herstellung ihrer Uhren ans Morgen. Will heißen: Die Produktplanung und -steuerung haben stets auch den späteren Service im Auge. So stellt Rolex die bereits genannte Versorgung mit   Austausch-Komponenten   sicher. Die gewaltige Menge an Kapital bindendem Material, welches die Niederlassungen von der Genfer Mutter beziehen, ergeben in jedem Fall ihren Sinn.

Konkrete Zahlen nennt Rolex traditionsgemäß nicht. Aber angesichts des andauernden Erfolgs der Manufaktur dürfte jährlich eine bemerkenswert große Menge servicebedürftiger und überwiegend mechanische Zeitmesser ihren Weg nach Köln oder in ein anderen Service-Center. Wer will, kann seine Armbanduhr auch direkt beim Empfang zum Beispiel im sechsten Stock der deutschen Rolex-Niederlassung abgeben.

Rolex Kundendienst Empfang New York

Ob Genf, Köln oder New York - der Rolex Kundendienst steht parat

Ein Besuch im eigentlichen Serviceatelier ist dagegen aus mehreren Gründen nicht möglich. Zum einen spielen   Sicherheitsaspekte   eine wichtige Rolle. Ferner würden Gäste trotz aller Vorsichtsmaßnahmen ein wenig jenen verhassten   Staub   mit sich bringen, welcher Uhrwerken ungemein schadet. Zudem stören Rundgänge die akribisch geplanten Arbeitsabläufe . Das wiederum führt zwangsläufig zu unerwünschten Verzögerungen. Wer seine Rolex-Armbanduhr zum offiziellen Service gibt, möchte sie logischer Weise möglichst bald zurückhaben.

Unterschiede gibt es bei Rolex übrigens nicht. Es ist schlichtweg egal, auf welchem Weg die Uhren in ein   Rolex Service-Center   gelangt, oder ob ein   zertifizierter Konzessionär   die Wartungsarbeiten selber ausführt. In jeden Fall gelten für Überholungsarbeiten die gleich strengen Qualitätsstandards wie bei der Produktion neuer Zeitmesser und dazu die offiziell definierten Preise .

Rolex Submariner Referenz 126610 LV mit Garantiekarte 2021

Jede neue Rolex begleitet eine fünfjährige Garantie. Selbige tritt nur in Kraft, wenn die Karte vom offiziellen Konzessionär ordnungsgemäß ausgefüllt wurde.

Wissenswertes um den Rolex Service

Bekanntlich finden alle neuen   Rolex-Armbanduhren   mit einer   fünfjährigen Garantie   zum weltweiten Kundenkreis. Sollten sich wider Erwarten Fabrikationsmängel eingeschlichen haben, kümmert sich jede offizielle Servicestelle zügig um deren Beseitigung. Voraussetzung ist eine ordnungsgemäß ausgefüllte   Garantiekarte . Schon beim Verkauf wird jede Rolex mit ihrer   Fabrikationsnummer   zentral registriert. Im Zusammenhang mit jedem   Kundendienst   erfolgt auch eine Prüfung der im Computer gespeicherten Daten. Das kommt im Servicefall solchen Menschen zugute, die ihre Rolex als gestohlen melden mussten. Sollte ein entsprechender Vermerk vorhanden sein, handelt Rolex entsprechend der jeweiligen rechtlichen Situation. Im schlimmsten Fall wird die Uhr bis zur endgültigen Klärung einbehalten.

Rolex Explorer II Referenz 16570 Tritium

Armbanduhren wie diese Rolex Explorer II, Referenz 16570, aus den 1990-er Jahren besitzen noch ein Zifferblatt mit radioaktiv strahlender Tritium-Leuchtmasse.

Schließlich heißt es noch etwas im Zusammenhang mit dem Service an  älteren Rolex-Modellen  zu wissen: Sofern diese ein Zifferblatt mit  radioaktiver Tritium-Leuchtmasse  besitzen, muss dieses aus strahlenschutzrechtlichen Gründen zwingend gegen ein zeitgemäßes  Super-LumiNova-Exemplar  ausgetauscht werden. Derartige Zifferblätter lassen sich beispielsweise am kleinen Buchstaben T neben dem Swiss Made ganz unten bei der „6“ erkennen. Wer also seine Uhr im Originalzustand erhalten möchte, sollte sie tunlichst einem freien, nicht an Rolex gebundenen Uhrmacher anvertrauen.

Werktisch Rolex Kundendienst

Einen so genannten Schnellservice, bei dem das nur teilweise demontierte Uhrwerk in ein Ultraschall-Bad wandert, gibt es bei Rolex traditionsgemäß nicht. Jedes Uhrwerk wird komplett bis zur letzten Schraube zerlegt, gereinigt und dann wieder assembliert.

Ablauf Rolex Service

Auf die   detaillierte Registratur   jeder Uhr erfolgt eine erste umfassende Diagnose. Mit geschulten Augen und spezifischer Gerätschaft prüfen die Mitarbeiter den Zustand von Gehäuse, Uhrwerk und Armband auf Herz und Nieren. Dann steht das komplette Zerlegen bis in alle Einzelteile an. Andere, weniger aufwändige Verfahren sind bei Rolex absolut tabu. Nach der Demontage geschieht eine gründliche Reinigung der verschiedenen Komponenten. Was nicht mehr den Vorgaben entspricht, wandert gnadenlos in den Abfall. An ihre Stelle treten beim Zusammenbau neue Teile .

Rolex Kundendienst

Neben dem Uhrwerk erfahren auch Gehäuse und Armband eine sorgfältige Pflege

Nachpolitur einer goldenen Rolex Oyster-Schale

Parallel zur Remontage des Uhrwerks nehmen Spezialisten die Reinigung sowie die  Politur von Gehäuse und Band  vor. Bei der abschließenden Regulierung des Gangs während insgesamt 24 Stunden nach Vollaufzug agiert der Rolex-Service strenger als es die  offizielle Schweizer Chronometerprüfstelle  erlauben würde.

Rolex Kundendienst

Sorgfältige Regulierung und Kontrolle der Ganggenauigkeit sind fester Bestandteil des Rolex-Service.

Am Ende ist natürlich auch noch eine akribische   Prüfung auf Wasserdich te angesagt. Hierzu verfügt alle zugelassenen Servicewerkstätten über einen Gerätepark, welcher den neuesten Stand der Technik repräsentiert.

Selbstverständlich bei jedem Service ist auch die Wiederherstellung der ursprünglichen Wasserdichte

Dauer Rolex Inspektion

All diese Arbeiten sind natürlich nicht von heute auf morgen zu leisten. Etwa zwanzig Arbeitstage beträgt die durchschnittliche Durchlaufzeit. Für viele sind drei Wochen ohne ihre Rolex reichlich lang. Aber im Vergleich zu anderen Uhrenmarken ist diese Zeitspanne erfreulich kurz.

Rolex Kundendienst Kontrolle

Nur perfekt gewartete und geprüfte Rolex Uhren finden ihren Weg zurück ans Handgelenk des Kunden

Rolex Gewährleistung

Und noch etwas sollte abschließend Erwähnung finden: Akkordarbeit ist in den  Serviceateliers des Hauses Rolex  ein Fremdwort. Jeder Uhrmacher darf so lange brauchen, wie es die gebotene Gewissenhaftigkeit verlangt. Weil sich an jeden Vollservice eine   zweijährige Gewährleistung  anschließt, erscheint diese hehre Arbeitsphilosophie mehr als gerechtfertigt.

Nach der Rückkehr in einem praktischen Reiseetui können die Kundinnen und Kunden nun wieder bis zur nächsten Rolex Inspektion, also in rund sechs Jahren, zufrieden auf ihre präzise Rolex blicken und sich ganz nebenbei daran erfreuen, dass der Wert ihres Rolex Zeitmessers nicht nur erhalten bleibt, sondern bei entsprechender Pflege erfahrungsgemäß kontinuierlich steigt .

Rolex_GMT-Master II 16700 (C) Uhrenkosmos

Die Rolex GMT Master II "Coke" kostete Ende der 1990-er Jahre umgerechnet rund 2.500 Euro. Gegenwärtig ist die Referenz 16710 kaum mehr unter 9.000 Euro zu haben. Regelmäßiger Service ist also sein Geld in jedem Fall wert.

Die Kosten einer Rolex Revision

Die Kosten einer Rolex Revision

Egal ob Automatikuhr oder Modell mit Handaufzug: Eine analoge Uhr hat eine ganze Reihe an Verschleißteilen. Kein Wunder: Mechanische Armbanduhren sind Wunderwerke der Technik und der Feinmechanik. Von der Unruh über das Räderwerk bis hin zum Federhaus – eine ganze Reihe von feinsten und kleinsten Bauteilen sorgt dafür, dass die Uhren hochpräzise laufen und nur minimale Abweichungen zur tatsächlichen Uhrzeit anzeigen.

Bei einer Rolex ist das umso mehr der Fall, da die sportlichen Armbanduhren selbst unter widrigsten Umständen noch gut funktionieren müssen. Beim Tauchen, Bergsteigen oder anderen Extremsportarten werden die Bauteile eines Uhrwerks enormen Belastungen ausgesetzt. Dass dann hin und wieder eine Revision fällig wird, ist mehr als nachvollziehbar.

Eine Revision ist eine Überholung und Überarbeitung der Uhr inklusive des Armbands und des Uhrwerks.  Der Umfang kann dabei variieren, denn der Kunde kann durchaus Wünsche äußern. Die Kosten für eine Revision halten sich dabei bei Rolex im Rahmen – andere Marken greifen da deutlich tiefer in die Taschen der Kundschaft. In diesem Artikel zeigen wir die Kosten einer Revision bei Rolex im Detail.

Die Kosten für eine Rolex Revision

  • Oyster Perpetual: 550,- €
  • Cellini: 550,- €
  • Datejust: 600,- €
  • Air-King: 700,- €
  • Milgauss: 700,- €
  • Submariner & Submariner Date: 700,- €
  • Sea-Dweller & Deepsea: 700,- €
  • Explorer & Explorer II: 700,- €
  • Yacht-Master I: 700,- €
  • GMT Master & GMT Master II: 700,- €
  • Day-Date: 800,- €
  • Cosmograph Daytona: 800,- €
  • Yacht-Master II: 950,- €
  • Sky-Dweller: 950,- €

Was ist von einer Revision umfasst?

Der Umfang einer Revision kann grundsätzlich vom Kunden bestimmt werden. Das ist vor allem wichtig für Fans und Sammler von Vintage-Uhren, die Zifferblätter, Zeiger und andere Verschleißteile nicht gewechselt haben wollen. Auch das Polieren einer gebrauchten Uhr ist nicht immer gewünscht, da besonders bei sammelwürdigen Modellen eine Politur den Wert der Uhr massiv beeinträchtigt. Bei bestimmten Uhren können tausende Euro in kurzer Zeit so vernichtet werden.

Am wichtigsten ist natürlich die Wartung des Uhrwerks. Von Zapfen über Räder bis hin zu Federn – hier findet man die häufigsten Verschleißteile bei einer mechanischen Armbanduhr. Wichtig ist unter anderem ein Säubern des Uhrwerks und ein Ersetzen von Zapfen, die ausgeschlagen sind. Auch das Ölen von Lagersteinen kann nötig sein. Bei der Revision einer Rolex bezahlt man – wie bei anderen Marken auch – natürlich sowohl die ersetzten Teile, als auch die Arbeitszeit.

Das Problem bei Revisionen ist immer: Für einen konkreten Kostenvoranschlag muss man die Uhr öffnen und zerlegen, denn nur so ist es möglich, die Teile zu identifizieren, die auch wirklich ersetzt werden müssen. Das ist aber im Regelfall nicht möglich. Die oben gezeigten Preise zur Orientierung sind daher nur dann einschlägig, wenn keine wirklich schlimmen Defekte (etwa durch einen Wasser- oder Ölschaden) entstanden sind.

Wann braucht meine Uhr eine Revision?

Grundsätzlich ist die Frage, ob und wann eine Uhr eine Revision braucht, nicht einfach zu beantworten. Unter Uhrenfans ist diese Frage sehr umstritten. Einerseits wird behauptet, eine Uhr brauche gar keine Revision, ohne dass dies durch einen merklichen Vor- oder Nachgang indiziert würde. Andererseits vertreten Uhrenfans die Meinung, ein Auto würde man nicht auch erst dann zur Revision / in den Service schicken, wenn bereits ein Schaden eingetreten sei. Die Antwort liegt wohl irgendwo dazwischen.

In den weltweit rund 900 After-Sales Service Werkstätten von Rolex werden alle Uhren der Marke, unabhängig von Zustand und Alter, bearbeitet. Rolex selbst empfiehlt für die eigenen Zeitmesser einen Rahmen von rund 10 Jahren. Dieser kann sich je nach Nutzung der Uhr in beide Richtungen verschieben. Wer regelmäßig mit der Uhr Extremsport betreibt oder im Salzwasser taucht, sollte eine Revision eher früher in Betracht ziehen – sorgsam gepflegt kann eine Rolex aber auch nach 20 Jahren problemlos ihren Dienst verrichten.

Spätestens wenn die Uhr eine merkliche Gangabweichung zeigt oder die Gangreserve extrem nachzulassen scheint, sollte eine Revision in Betracht gezogen werden. Durch ein frühzeitiges Eingreifen durch einen fachkundigen Uhrmacher können dann größere Schäden verhindert werden. Insbesondere bei gesplittertem Glas sollte sofort eine Revision durchgeführt werden. Splitter können sonst durch das Datumsfenster ins Uhrwerk gelangen und dieses im schlimmsten Fall komplett zerstören.

Die Rolex Revision Kosten im Detail

Wer seiner Rolex eine Inspektion gönnen möchte, der kann die aktuell gültigen Preise für das jeweilige Land beim Konzessionär oder bei der offiziellen Rolex Boutique der Wahl erfragen. Die Länderpreise variieren dabei auf Grund unterschiedlicher Sätze der Umsatzsteuer. Die oben gezeigte Preisliste ist jedoch eine sehr gute Orientierung und bildet die Preise im deutschen Markt relativ gut ab.

Bei besonders massiven Beschädigungen können die Preise jedoch auch stark variieren. Gerade bei komplizierten Uhren kann ein Tausch des Uhrwerks leicht mehrere tausend Euro kosten. Das Uhrwerk der Sky-Dweller etwa, das komplizierteste aktuelle Rolex Uhrwerk, kostet alleine rund 8.000 € – dafür bekommt man fast schon eine Edelstahl Submariner. Da die meisten Uhren dieser Preisklasse aber ein x-faches teurer sind, wird auch hier der Austausch des Uhrwerks wohl immer durchgeführt.

Die Kosten für die Revision sind in der abschließenden Rechnung natürlich aufgeführt und nach Posten aufgeschlüsselt. Der Kunde erhält dabei natürlich ausgetauschte Zeiger und Zifferblatt auf Wunsch mit, da diese für manchen Sammler für den Originalzustand wichtig sein können. Wer seine Rolex also besonders liebt, der sollte alle paar Jahre überlegen, ob die Uhr nicht zumindest in begrenztem Umfang gewartet werden sollte.

Watches In The Wild The Road Through America, Episode 1: A Model Of Mass Production

There is big news, and there is Rolex big news, and in some ways, ne'er the twain shall meet. At Baselworld this year, Rolex debuted a first for the company: the very first, ever, Rolex delivered on a rubber strap. Now, for most companies this would have little effect on watch enthusiasts other than to evoke (very) tepid interest at best, and boredom at worst – but this is not an ordinary rubber strap, this is an official, designed-and-tested-and-thoroughly-obsessed-over-by-Rolex rubber strap. And thereby hangs a tale.

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

The Yachtmaster, as we have mentioned in some of our previous coverage , occupies a somewhat particular place in Rolex’s lineup of sports watches; it shares water-resistance and a turning bezel with the Submariner (the latter is water resistant to 300 m while the Yachtmaster standard model is water resistant to 100 m). It is certainly not a tool watch; the Yachtmaster is offered in either platinum and steel, or gold and steel (that’s Rolesium and Rolesor, lest we forget) and is either quietly or unequivocally luxurious depending on what size and metal you go for (Rolex makes the Yachtmaster in both 35 mm and 40 mm sizes). 

The Yachtmaster’s history goes back to the first introduction of the watch in 1992, although the name, interestingly enough, appears on the dial of a prototype Yachtmaster Chronograph from the late 1960s (a watch so legendary I am actually forced to use the word; one of three known is in the collection of Mr. John Goldberger; we covered it – and a host of other remarkable ultra-rare watches from his collection – in a very memorable episode of Talking Watches ).

The term “Yachtmaster” is also, incidentally, used for a certificate of competency in yachting which is issued by the Royal Yachting Association, although we’re unaware of any specific association between the RYA and the Yachtmaster watch.

Now, this newest version of the Yachtmaster does take a few pages from the existing Yachtmaster playbook: 100-meter water resistance, a bidirectional turning bezel, and a dial and hands that echo the Submariner. There are also a couple of features that may make vintage Sub enthusiasts wonder if Rolex mightn’t have an exceedingly subtle sense of humor; the gilt coronet and “Rolex,” and the red lettering, both features which according to HODINKEE founder Ben Clymer would have, had they appeared on a Rolex dive watch, made it instantly the single most popular watch in the modern Rolex inventory. The case is rose gold – Rolex famously makes their own, called Everose, in their own foundry, with a bit of platinum mixed in to prevent discoloration – and the bezel, rather than being some other precious metal (as is the case in the “standard” Yachtmasters) is in black Cerachrom – a very technical-looking matte black that contrasts sharply with the gold case. Somehow, between the rose gold, the Cerachrom bezel, and the new Oysterflex bracelet this manages to be the most luxurious and at the same time most technical Yachtmaster yet (leaving aside the Yachtmaster II, which we recently reviewed right here , but that is a watch that marches to the beat of a different drummer entirely).

The two different versions of the Everose Yachtmaster (40 mm and 37 mm) sport different movements; the larger uses the caliber 3135 and the smaller, the newer 2236, which sports the “Syloxi” silicon balance spring (first used by Rolex in 2014).

The Oysterflex bracelet is, in a nutshell, quite a piece of work. One of the most endearing traits of Rolex as a company is that it tends to demonstrate what we can only describe as a laudable degree of corporate obsessive-compulsive disorder when it comes to research and development, and it does so, often, without making any sort of fanfare about it at all. In this case we do know a little bit about the Oysterflex, however – it is basically designed to have the hypoallergenic and comfort properties of a rubber strap and the durability and shape-retention properties of a bracelet. 

At the core of the Oysterflex bracelet are metal inserts made of titanium and nickel, which are used to affix the bracelet to the clasp and watch case; over those is a sheathing of “high-performance black elastomer.” “Elastomer” is a portmanteau word, formed from “elastic” and “polymer” and is a general term for natural and synthetic rubbers. In addition to the materials complexity of the Oysterflex bracelet, it is also shaped in a rather unusual fashion – there are ridges molded into the the wristward face of the bracelet, which are intended to allow the bracelet when worn to better approximate the natural curvature of the wrist.

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

They might look a bit odd but in practice, the design works out quite wonderfully; this is easily the most downright comfortable and organic-feeling rubber strap I have ever worn, and like the entire watch manages to be both extremely technical in feel, and very luxurious at the same time; I doubt whether any company has ever taken so much trouble over the design of a strap (for all that Rolex prefers the term “bracelet” in describing the Oysterflex, habit dies hard and you’ll probably find yourself calling it a strap, just as we did). On the wrist, the two stabilizing ridges do exactly what they are supposed to: keep the watch from shifting, as heavier watches on rubber straps are wont to do, without requiring you to have the strap uncomfortably tight. The Everose Oysterlock clasp does a superb job mechanically and also looks fabulous into the bargain; the quality of finish on the clasp and case may not seem terribly elaborate at first, but it is as technically flawless as anything I have ever seen at any price, on any watch.

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

What we have here, in other words, is a very Rolex interpretation of luxury. Yes, this is a gold watch, and a gold Rolex, and wearing a gold Rolex always carries with it, shall we say, certain semiotic complexities. However there is also another side to the watch, and to the Rolex approach to luxury in general: the taking of such pains to produce technical perfection that technical perfection becomes a luxury in itself.

Rolex’s Titanium Yacht-Master 42 Review: The Game-Changer

rolex yacht-master 42 review

Table of Contents

In the world of luxury watches , the new Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226627 is a study in contrasts—nautical yet luxurious, familiar yet distinct. Introduced as part of a line that has often lived in the shadow of the iconic Submariner , this particular model breaks the mold with its RLX Titanium build and unique features.

It’s a distinct shift that has long-time fans and new admirers debating its merits. Is this the watch that finally elevates the Yacht-Master collection to legendary status?

If you’ve ever found yourself torn between the sporty appeal and luxury essence of Rolex watches, the Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226627 demands your attention. Dive into our in-depth Yatch Master 42 review to explore its unique features and find out if this timepiece ticks all the right boxes for you.

rolex yacht-master 42 ref. 226627 case

The Oyster case of the Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226627 stands out at 42mm, constructed entirely of RLX titanium. Notably, this isn’t any ordinary titanium. Rolex specifically opts for grade 5 titanium alloy for this model, prized for its extraordinary lightness paired with mechanical robustness and resistance to corrosion.

What sets RLX titanium apart further is its adaptability in the finish. Whether you’re looking at a polished gleam or a satin touch, it conforms to Rolex’s exacting standards. However, it’s worth noting that this high mechanical strength presents a challenge in crafting. To harness its qualities, Rolex had to innovate, integrating specialized production techniques tailored for RLX titanium.

Moreover, this monobloc middle case features a screw-down back and winding crown, embodying Rolex’s commitment to durability and precision engineering. The rotating bezel is bidirectional, complete with a Cerachrom insert matte black ceramic insert bezel, graced with a mirror polish, raised numerals and graduations. This perfectly complements the titanium case, making it an exemplar of maritime luxury.

Function meets form in its winding crown, equipped with Rolex’s Triplock triple waterproofness system. Coupled with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a Cyclops lens over the date, this Titanium YM is waterproof to 100 meters or 330 feet and with a power reserve of up to 70 hours. 

The Dial 

rolex yacht-master 42 ref. 226627 dial

The dial of the Rolex Yacht-Master 42 is more than a display, it’s a testament to horological engineering and aesthetic acumen. Enhanced with Chromalight technology, the matte black dial promises unimpeachable legibility even in the darkest marine abyss. Broad, polished numerals and geometrically distinct hands and markers comprising circles, rectangles, and triangles are filled with luminescent material that emits an enduring glow.

Such meticulous attention to detail reaffirms the watch’s utility, making it an indomitable tool for nocturnal navigation. Paired with its stunning deep black hue, this display adds a layer of mystique that’s equally at home on the high seas or at a black-tie affair.

The Strap/Bracelet

rolex yacht-master 42 ref. 226627 bracelet

Adorning the new Yacht-Master 42 is an Oyster bracelet meticulously forged from RLX titanium, an alchemy of strength and refinement. A legacy creation tracing its roots to the late 1930s, this tri-link wonder stands as an iconic feature within Rolex’s revered Oyster Perpetual series.

The bracelet is enhanced with the Oysterlock folding safety clasp, an ingenious feature that secures your timepiece against accidental openings. It is also equipped with Rolex’s Easylink comfort extension link, offering the wearer the luxury of micro-adjustments for an impeccable fit.

Not to be overlooked, patented ceramic inserts embellish the internal links of this RLX titanium composition. These delicate yet durable additions not only enhance the bracelet’s ergonomic comfort but also significantly elevate its lifespan, epitomizing enduring elegance in horological artistry.

The Movement

rolex 3235 movement

The movement within the Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226627 is a perpetual, mechanical, self-winding system that utilizes Rolex’s own Calibre 3235. This isn’t just any in-house movement; it’s one that assures a precision rate of -2/+2 seconds per day after casing, a feat that outperforms many other luxury timepieces in the market.

When it comes to functionality, this watch features a straightforward, yet highly useful set of capabilities. The central hour, minute, and seconds hands are complemented by an instantaneous date display function with rapid setting and a stop-seconds mechanism for ultra-precise time adjustment.

Underpinning this all is the oscillator, which employs a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers. These features enhance the watch’s durability and performance under different conditions. The bidirectional self-winding Perpetual rotor ensures that the watch remains operational and accurate, even when not manually wound for an extended period.

The Competitive Landscape

These watches are competitors primarily due to their shared characteristics and target market. While not all of them are made of titanium, they share key features such as high water resistance, durable sapphire crystals, and reliable movements:

  • ORIS PROPILOT X CALIBRE 115: Crafted from both Grade 2 and 5 Titanium, this timepiece offers a commendable 100m water resistance and houses a mechanical movement. Its impeccable titanium construction and precision mechanics align harmoniously with the Yacht-Master’s ethos of opulence and artistry.
  • OMEGA SEAMASTER DIVER 300: While its case boasts Grade 2 Titanium, the Seamaster is celebrated for its extraordinary 300m water resistance, automatic movement, and the elegance of a sapphire crystal. It stands as a formidable choice for those who seek a timepiece of enduring strength and style.
  • TUDOR PELAGOS 39: Enveloped in Grade 2 Titanium, this horological masterpiece showcases a robust 200m water resistance and houses an automatic movement. The Pelagos stands as a worthy contender in the realm of luxury sports watches, boasting durability and performance akin to the Yacht-Master.
  • TAG HEUER AQUARACER PROFESSIONAL 300: Boasting a formidable 300m water-resistant case, automatic movement, and the refined allure of a sapphire crystal, the Aquaracer commands attention within the upper echelons of dive watches, despite the absence of titanium in its construction.
  • VACHERON CONSTANTIN OVERSEAS TOURBILLON SKELETON: While featuring Grade 5 titanium, this watch stands out as a luxury option with a tourbillon movement. Its water resistance is lower at 50m, making it more of a statement piece than a diving watch , but it competes in the luxury segment.

Notable People Wearing Rolex Yacht Master 42

The Rolex Yacht-Master 42mm in RLX titanium has already made its way onto some high-profile wrists, creating buzz and drawing attention to this unique piece.

Sir Ben Ainslie

First seen sported by British competitive sailor Sir Ben Ainslie, the Yacht-Master 42’s maritime features and innovative titanium build found a perfect match. As a sailor with numerous accolades, Sir Ben Ainslie’s endorsement brings credibility to the Yacht-Master’s nautical roots and functionality.

Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has also been spotted wearing the Rolex Yacht-Master 42. Known for his love of action and adventure, both on-screen and off, Cruise’s choice in wearing this Rolex model underscores its appeal to those who lead high-paced, adventurous lives.

The appearance of this Rolex timepiece on the wrists of individuals of such varied but high-profile backgrounds speaks to the universal appeal and versatility of the Yacht-Master 42. 

Why You Should Invest?

Priced at SGD 18,132.17, the Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226627 represents a new frontier for Rolex, which has historically been associated with weighty, robust deepsea challenge timepieces made from stainless steel or precious metals. When a prototype was seen on the wrist of British competitive sailor Sir Ben Ainslie, the notion of a titanium Rolex suddenly moved from fantasy to reality.

Despite its lighter weight, this doesn’t undermine the watch’s value; it enhances it. The use of grade 5 RLX titanium introduces a level of complexity and craftsmanship that justifies its price tag. Titanium is notoriously difficult to work with, and Rolex has managed to not only manufacture it but also perfect it, maintaining the watch’s renowned durability and resistance.

When looking at Rolex watches as an investment, consider their volatility. The Yacht-Master series exhibits lower volatility, with other Yacht masters like the Rolex 226659 at 7.2% and Rolex 226658 at 4.4%, suggesting more stable value retention. Given the groundbreaking nature of the Titanium Yacht-Master Ref. 226627, its value is likely to appreciate over time. Rolex’s commitment to innovation while maintaining quality will likely make this model a sought-after piece in the future.

Pricing and Availability

The Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226627 is priced at SGD 18,132.17 . Given its high-quality craftsmanship, innovative use of RLX titanium, and the brand’s reputation for durability and luxury, this price point is aligned with what one would expect for a timepiece of this caliber.

As for availability, it’s advisable to consult authorized Rolex dealers or reputable online platforms for the most current information. Rolex watches, especially innovative or popular models like this one, can sometimes be difficult to find in stock due to high demand and limited releases.

If you’re considering this tool watch as an investment piece or a functional yet luxurious watch, it’s recommended to act promptly, given the notable personalities already spotted wearing it and its potential for future value appreciation.

The Rolex watch Yacht-Master 42 Ref. 226627 is a groundbreaking entry in Rolex’s esteemed line-up, blending innovation with classic craftsmanship. Its use of RLX titanium and a host of advanced features mark it as a pinnacle of both style and functionality. 

Key Takeaways

  • Introduced as a trailblazing model featuring RLX Titanium, this watch has redefined what it means to be a Rolex Yacht-Master.
  • Its unique material and craftsmanship not only justify its premium price but also suggest a strong potential for value appreciation.
  • The likes of Sir Ben Ainslie and Tom Cruise being spotted with this timepiece not only elevates its status but also underscores its universal appeal and functionality.

Rolex Yacht-Master Watch Review

Rolex yacht-master review.

Rolex has built a reputation on their classic and timeless designs. They’re not one to release a new model every other year. In fact, after the launch of the Daytona in 1963, it would be nearly another 30 years before they’d debut an entirely new model. That model was the Rolex Yacht-Master. Here, we’ll provide a Rolex Yacht-Master review, including key features of the Rolex Yacht-Master, the history of the Rolex Yacht-Master through the years, and notable wearers.

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

List of Key Features of the Rolex Yacht-Master

  • Case: Available in three different sizes – 37mm, 40mm, and 42mm – and two materials – gold or two-tone gold and platinum
  • Bezel: Bidirectional, rotatable, 60-minute graduated bezel
  • Crown: Screw-down, Triplock, water-resistant crown system
  • Depth Rating: 100 meters of water resistance
  • Movement: Perpetual, mechanical, self-winding movement manufactured by Rolex
  • Band: Offered with either an Oyster bracelet or Oysterflex strap

History of the Rolex Yacht-Master through the Years

The very first  Rolex Yacht-Master  was the Reference 16628. The brand only offered the model in a 40mm, 18-karat yellow gold case with a white dial. The Ref. 16628 also came equipped with a screw-down, Triplock crown and boasted 100 meters of water resistance. Inside, it housed the Caliber 3135 movement.

For the first several years, Rolex only made minor changes to the Yacht-Master line. In 1994, they released a slightly different iteration of the Yacht-Master: the Reference 68628. This variation was smaller, with a 35mm case. That same year, they also added a women’s version of the Yacht-Master: the Reference 69628. It showcased an even more modest case size, measuring just 29mm.

In 1999, Rolex introduced the first major update to the Yacht-Master collection. That year, they debuted an all-new, patented combination of metals created specifically for the Yacht-Master. They called this two-tone combination of stainless steel and platinum, Rolesium . At the annual Basel World Fair, Rolex launched the material in three different sizes. These included the 40mm Reference 16622, 35mm Reference 168622, and the 29mm Reference 169622.

The next update to the Yacht-Master collection came in 2005. That year, Rolex added another two-tone variation to the line, this time in stainless steel and 18-karat yellow gold. They offered the new colorway in the 40mm Reference 16623. Two years later, Rolex made the most significant change to the Yacht-Master line with the addition of the Yacht-Master II . However, the lineage of the original Yacht-Master has continued.

Rolex Yachmaster Crown view

In 2012, Rolex released the next notable upgrade for the Yacht-Master with the Reference 116622. While the model retained its 40mm sizing, it featured an all-new “super case” with different styling. In addition, it boasted an all-platinum bezel as opposed to a combination of platinum and stainless steel. Last but not least, it came equipped with a refined version of the Oyster bracelet featuring an upgraded clasp.

Three years later, Rolex debuted another first for the brand in the Yacht-Master collection’s Reference 116655. This time, instead of a new metal, they introduced their own rigorously designed and tested variation of the rubber strap. The Oysterflex bracele t marked the first-ever rubber strap for the brand. Ever since, it’s become a staple of the Yacht-Master collection.

In the past several years, Rolex has continued to make subtle updated and additions to the Yacht-Master line. One of the latest releases is the Yacht-Master 40 with a multi-color, gem-set bezel. More recently in 2019, Rolex introduced the first 42mm time-and-date Yacht Master Reference 226659.

Deep Dive on Key Features of the Rolex Yacht-Master

For years, 40mm was the standard sizing for the Yacht-Master. The smaller, 35mm variation was the only alternative up until around 2016. Rolex has since replaced it with the 37mm iteration for a smaller option. In addition, it’s only been since 2019 that Rolex has made a larger, 42mm option available.

Rolex Yachtmaster Blue Dial

One of the most notable key features of the Rolex Yacht-Master is the bidirectional, rotatable, 60-minute graduated bezel. Its design helps skippers measure and anticipate the crucial countdown interval leading up to the start of a regatta or sailing race. The screw-down, Triplock crown is another key feature of the Rolex Yacht-Master. This water-resistant system has been a staple of the model since its inception.

With only 100 meters of water resistance, the Yacht-Master is perfect for enjoying a day on the water as opposed to scuba diving. Yet, its in-house, perpetual, mechanical, self-winding movement makes it a robust watch for any occasion. In addition, the option of Oyster bracelet or Oysterflex strap made it versatile enough to take from land to sea.

Who Wears the Rolex Yacht-Master?

The Yacht-Master is a popular choice among many of today’s top entertainers, athletes, and chefs. Some of the Yacht-Master’s famous wearers include TV personality Ellen DeGeneres and film icons like Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis . Athletes across an array of modalities also appreciate the Yacht-Master. You can find it on the wrist of star players like former pro-footballer David Beckham, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan , and former World Number One golfer Justin Thomas. Last but certainly not least, the legendary chef Emeril Lagasse is among the Yacht-Master’s celebrity fans.

WATCH REVIEW

Swanky sailor: reviewing the rolex oyster perpetual yacht-master.

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

In this feature from the WatchTime archives, we take a close look at the modern version of Rolex ’s Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master , with black Cerachrom bezel and Oysterflex bracelet. Original photos are by Nik Schölzel.

A water-resistant Oyster case, large hour markers and bold hands are essential elements of Rolex’s Submariner , introduced in 1953 and made for use underwater. In contrast, Rolex’s Yacht-Master, launched in 1992, is a luxury liner – equally at home on board a yacht on the high seas or on land at a ritzy yacht club. But to enjoy this luxury you’ll need to pay almost $25,000 for the 40-mm Everose gold and Cerachrom ceramic version shown here. Stainless-steel versions of the Yacht-Master are priced about $13,000 less.

The Yacht-Master was the first watch in Rolex’s Professional Oyster Collection to come in three different case sizes: 29, 35 and 40 mm. The model we tested, launched last year, is offered in two sizes: 37 and 40 mm. We chose the larger version, which we measured at precisely 40.19 mm in diameter and 11.49 mm in height (excluding the magnifying “Cyclops” lens for the date).

The well-known Cyclops date lens was patented by Rolex in 1953 and introduced in 1954 on the Datejust. This magnifying device is made of sapphire, like the watch’s crystal, and has nonreflective coating on both sides. The jumping date advances exactly at midnight.

The watch is powered by a seasoned caliber, the Rolex 3135, used in the very first Yacht-Master in 1992. The 3135 debuted in 1988 in the Submariner. The blue Parachrom balance spring was added to the movement in 2005, five years after it was first introduced in the Cosmograph Daytona. Its paramagnetic alloy resists changes caused by temperature variations and magnetic fields.

The Parachrom balance spring is thinner than a human hair and up to 10 times more resistant to shocks than a conventional balance spring. Provided with an overcoil, it is attached to a large balance wheel with a variable moment of inertia. Fine adjustments are made using four gold Microstella regulating screws. The balance wheel is supported by a height-adjustable bridge. The entire construction ensures rate results that bring the Yacht-Master (as well as the other watches in the Oyster collection) to the rank of “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified.” These words on the Yacht-Master’s dial mean that the watch has endured 15 days and nights of testing by COSC in addition to a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratory. Acceptable rate results for a Superlative Chronometer allow deviations of less than +/-2 seconds per day, while COSC’s test permits average deviations between -4 and +6 seconds per day. In addition, Rolex’s tests are carried out under conditions that correspond more closely to real-life situations than COSC’s tests and are conducted on fully assembled watches, while COSC tests just the movements.

We, too, tested the finished watch – fully wound and after running for 24 hours – first in five positions on the timing machine and then with a two-week wearing test on the wrist (or simulated on a winding machine). In our tests, the Yacht-Master remained within the standards specified by Rolex for a Superlative Chronometer. On the wrist it showed virtually no deviations over the two-week period. On the timing machine it showed a gain of about 1 second per day with minimal variations among the positions.

The tests performed by Rolex include a water-resistance check. Unlike the Submariner, the Yacht-Master’s water resistance is “only” 100 meters. This means that the Yacht-Master is not designed to be a professional dive watch , which requires water resistance of at least 200 meters.

The Yacht-Master’s bidirectional bezel also keeps it from being a dive watch. The bezel on a dive watch usually rotates in only one direction so it won’t show a shorter dive time if it’s repositioned inadvertently. But the Yacht-Master’s bezel is impressive: it has 120 ratchets and shows graduations in 5-minute increments using both Arabic numerals and line markers. The first quarter has well-defined minutes markers. Polished, raised graduations on the ceramic inlay stand in relief against a sandblasted, matte black background. The bezel is made of Cerachrom, Rolex’s ceramic material. The Ceramic inlay is set in a deeply grooved ring made of Everose gold, Rolex’s rose-gold alloy. A grooved caseback seals the case hermetically and can only be opened using a special tool. Three dots on the screw-down crown indicate that this watch has been sealed with the Triplock sealing system, a triple water- resistance system developed by Rolex.

The screw-down crown sits securely inside the case between two crown guards. Releasing the crown allows it to spring away from the midsection, which makes it easy to use for manual winding, rapid date change and setting the hands.

The dial has a characteristic Rolex look. The applied markers and elongated triangle at 12 o’clock are filled with Rolex’s luminous substance, Chromalight, and are displayed on a matte black background. The hour hand has a “Mercedes” circle filled with Chromalight and the seconds hand has a luminous Chromalight dot. The stark contrast of black and white ensures excellent legibility during the day; at night the Chromalight emits a blue glow for easy reading in the dark.

This watch is the first Rolex with an Oysterflex bracelet. (We use the term “bracelet” rather than “strap” because the Oysterflex, unlike standard rubber straps, has metal on the inside.) Combining a rubber strap with a gold case is nothing new, but at Rolex, known for its conservative approach to design, it’s a major innovation. The patented bracelet has a core made of nickel-titanium alloy blades, which provide excellent flexibility and are coated with a black elastomer, a synthetic type of rubber. When the material is subjected to tension and pressure, it returns to its original shape quickly. It resists environmental changes and is long lasting, waterproof and hypoallergenic – a good alternative to a metal bracelet. The bracelet’s black color goes well with the ceramic bezel and with the Everose gold case, presenting a modern, two-tone look.

Inside the bracelet is a patented cushioning system that increases wearing comfort. The bracelet accommodates changes in wrist size. The single-sided Oysterlock folding clasp made of Everose gold offers additional flexibility; it allows for three length adjustments. Screws attach the clasp securely to the bracelet. A safety bar makes opening the clasp more difficult but prevents it from opening accidentally.

gold on rubber = cool if one can afford it. I still prefer my S/S Y-M with PT dial & bezel = an understated goes everywhere quite comfortable piece. By the way… hardly mentioned BUT the curved lugs on all Yacht-Master models make for a wonderfully contoured fit + way better than straight lugs on most Rolex’

You’ll have to sell it to pay for the repairs for your yacht… but you’ll sure look good wearing it!

An interesting piece, shame about the poor out of focus photo’s !!!

May I request for an article or review regarding swiss made SELECTRON chronograph / computer watches made possibly during the 60s-70s?

That patent on the Cyclops would have expired over 40 years ago, meaning whatever it covered now can be freely-used by the public, I’m not sure it’s a bragging point (and, no, patents cannot be renewed).

This was a very nice watch. Is it automatic or manual? Do you know a good place to buy it?

Just aquired the YM 40 in Everose, stylish a touch sporty with a different look from my other Rolex’s.

Hey GW? Was wondering, since the article didn’t mention it, how is the rubber bracelet sized?

It actually comes with three different sizes, so you just pick the pair that works best for your wrist.

Sizing is a bit of a problem, I bought mine 2nd hand but never worn. AD will have various sizes in combination to make it fit. So if i were to sell it on that person may have a heck of a time getting it to fit.

Love the watch but I was told I had to wait a year to purchase the 40mm size in Canada. So, off I went and purchased a watch from a different manufacturerer!

Why make the consumer with cash in hand wait?

There are certainly other options available these days!

Old Caliber, a braclet which cannot be changed. What else can you expect from Rolex for a price about 24k Euro?

Yes, I agree. I don’t understand why they didn’t use the 3235 caliber.

Since spring 2019 they do use the 3235 movement.

Superb review of a superb Rolex. Thank you!

Hi, So does this mean that they have dumped the YM2 with its funny 10 second / minute countdown dial? I never liked the look of the YM2.

If they did it would explain why they are now available at Costco.

Truly lavishly stylish

Oh my goodness! Another lust object from Rolex (the origin of my watch, sorry chronometer, fetish). Faultless style and flash balanced with flawless functionality (OK, you can’t go all the way down). Opening my savings account now.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master is truly a fabulous watch and though it cost me a lot of money, I must say it is worth the money that I had to pay for it.

Over the years it has been quite accurate and did not cause me any difficulty till date.

FIFTH WRIST

Owner review: rolex yacht-master 40 126622.

Rolex Yacht-Master 126622

Before we get to my Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126622 review, we need some background. In 1992 Rolex introduced a watch that shared the silhouette of their beloved Submariner but in solid 18k yellow gold, embossed YG bezel insert soldered to the bezel, funky white dial, and the unusual name “Yacht-Master” written where “Submariner” would normally live. People then and now still wonder.. “Why?”.

Rumor has it Rolex wanted to drastically update the Submariner but were scared that the changes were too extreme. The Submariner was essentially their poster child and arguably their most iconic watch. Fearing backlash, they created a whole new line. Rolex rarely creates completely new watches, the last time they made a new watch before the Rolex Yacht-Master was in 1964 when the Daytona was introduced. Luckily it paid off as the Yacht-Master was pretty well received!

Even though the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 at first glance looks very similar to the Submariner it’s a totally different wearing experience. The case shape is completely different from the Sub. Its case profile is composed of compound curves with the lugs swooping downwards very similar to a Daytona, the case is also fully polished. My particular Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126622 being Roleisum (Rolex’s term for the combination of Platinum and Steel which was first introduced in 1999 with the ref. 16622), in combination with the blue sunburst dial and red accents, gives it such a unique aesthetic it sets it apart in Rolex’s catalog. Rolex I think perfected their blue dials, it’s absolutely gorgeous! Pictures do not do it justice whatsoever. In person, it appears much darker, almost black however in direct light that’s when the striking blue hue pops. The date function is also very convenient!

Rolex Yacht-Master

What is it like to wear a Rolex Yacht-Master? I would describe it as the most comfortable and stressful watch I have ever worn and owned. What most people don’t realize is that it’s a thin watch and I mean THIN. At 11.5mm it’s just as thin or even thinner than a 34mm 114200 Air-King! Like what? The case hugs your wrist amazingly while the oyster bracelet seems to caress you. It makes you want to wear it every single day, I mean how could you not? Thin, sporty, beautiful, comfortable and low key a strap monster. Until you see a scratch or nick on the solid Platinum bezel insert, call up Rolex Service Center to see how much it would be to replace it and they slap you in the face with a $2500 (before taxes) quote for JUST the bezel/bezel insert assembly (they’re soldered together remember?). Then you think “Okay, okay which Seiko ’s do I sell to cover the cost of a freaking bezel”. Did I mention the case is fully polished?

Has this ever happened to me? No, because I’m extremely OCD, however I was curious and called RSC, I also used to own the 16622 and was trained to wear long sleeves only, only wear it sparingly, cover my wrist when walking through doorways, never let it touch denim (yes, denim will scratch it apparently), and for all I know never sneeze near it or even look at it too long because for all I know that could probably scratch it too. To top it all off, of COURSE the bracelet and clasp has Polished Center Links! While I am exaggerating the fragility of the Rolex Yacht-Master, the stress of potentially scuffing it is real.

Rolex Yacht-Master

The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126622 is arguably one of my favorite watches ever made. I never thought I’d ever get to own one. It’s beautiful, ridiculously comfortable, relatively uncommon, however so stressful to wear. I have owned it for almost exactly one year and I personally try to enjoy every second I wear it; I even strap changed it with zero scuffs! I have and I do but my OCD and extreme caution lends itself to be a difficult one to fully appreciate without worry. I’ve debated if this watch was right for me all the time. However, I would recommend this watch to anyone minutely interested. I have no regrets having owned two of them like an insane person, but who in the watch collecting world isn’t insane?

Rolesium Yacht-Master 116622

The Rolex Rolex Yacht-Master 116622

With its debut just two years ago at Baselworld 2016, the Yacht-Master ref. 116622 has quickly established itself as a coveted Rolex luxury watch. Part sporty part precious, this modern Rolesium Yacht-Master 40 plays up both sides beautifully. Let’s explore all the glorious details.

The Rolesium Yacht-Master 40

rolex-116622-yachtmaster-watch

Whereas Rolesor refers to Rolex combining steel and gold on a two-tone watch, Rolesium is when rugged stainless steel and ultra-precious platinum meet on a Rolex watch. The Rolex ref. 116622 is indeed a Rolesium Yacht-Master model where the 40mm Oyster case and sporty Oyster bracelet are crafted in stainless steel while the bezel is made from platinum.

Although steel and platinum are both white metals – thus lend a monochromatic look to the watch – the Yacht-Master offers great contrasting textures. From the opposing high-polished raised numerals on the bezel set against a sandblasted background to the polished center links on the bracelet flanked by the brushed-finish outer links, the Yacht-Master ref. 116622 is always interesting to look at.

Rolex_Yachtmaster_116622_Watch

In terms of dial options, there’s the dark rhodium dial accented with a turquoise seconds hand and the turquoise YACHT-MASTER text or the blue dial with red accents. There’s plenty of lume on the Rolesium Yacht-Master for ideal legibility in low light and of course, the signature date window at 3 o’clock along with the Cyclops magnification lens on the sapphire crystal.

The Yacht-Master’s Caliber 3135

Often dubbed as Rolex’s workhorse, the Caliber 3135 has been an important movement for the company since 1988. This particular automatic movement powers many of Rolex’s timepieces including the Rolesium Yacht-Master ref. 116622.

The rolex 3135 movement is one of Rolex's crowning acheivements

The Caliber 3135 provides a power reserve of around 48 hours and as of 2015—a year before the launch of the Yacht-Master ref. 116622—Rolex redefined their “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” designation to guarantee an impressive accuracy rating of -2/+2 seconds per day. The self-winding caliber also boasts the paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring for improved resistance to magnetic fields and daily knocks.

Date Function

yachtmaster 116622

Naturally, as one of Rolex’s newer models, the Rolesium Yacht-Master 116622 includes the quickset date function where the date window is adjusted independently from the center timekeeping hands, in addition to the hacking feature where the seconds hands stops when the crown is pulled out for precise time-setting.

Ready For Marine Lifestyle

The Rolesium Yacht-Master 40 is equal parts sporty and refined

Finally, as its name suggests, the Yacht-Master 40 is perfectly suited for a marine lifestyle thanks in part to its 100-meter (330 feet) water resistance. To keep the water and dust out, there’s the Triplock screw-down winding crown and the fluted caseback.

A wonderful addition to the Rolex catalog, the   Rolesium Yacht-Master 40 is casually elegant, yet practical and durable. Just the thing to wear while sailing the seas.

The Watch Of The Open Seas: History Of The Rolex Yacht-Master

Rolex Yacht-Master 42 White Gold 226629

Instagram: @rolex

In the year 1992, Swiss watchmaker Rolex would debut a new model line at the Baselworld show that was strikingly similar to the already-popular Submariner. It featured the same 40mm Oyster case with a rotating bezel, the same chronometer-certified caliber, and the same Oyster bracelet.

Seemingly the only difference between the two was the white dial of that first Yacht-Master, a style which has never been an option on a Sub, and the inferior depth rating of 100m when compared to the Sub’s 300m.

Yet, the Yacht-Master was well-received upon launch, and with the passing of time, the yachting-inspired model has evolved and pioneered its own path within Rolex’s catalog.

Read on with us as we go back to the beginning and track the catalysts that paved the way for the most recent Yacht-Master release, the Yacht-Master 42 (226659), to become one of the hottest sports timepieces of the year.

The Release Of The Yacht-Master

The first Yacht-Master watch was launched in 1992 under reference number 16628. It featured a yellow gold case, a bidirectional graduated bezel, and a matching full-gold Oyster bracelet. Its dial was white with black hour indices, while at center were gold Mercedes hands, and beating inside was the 3135 movement.

Previous to the Yacht-Master’s introduction, Rolex had not released a new model line in a quarter century. So, why did they go with the Yacht-Master, a design that risked being a detractor from their existing Submariner? Let’s take a look at the inspiration.

The sport of yachting is one which demands precise timing and extreme coordination of the entire crew for optimal performance, particularly in offshore competitions.

Vintage Rolex Daytona Yacht-Master Prototype

Rolex believed their waterproof and chronometer-grade timepieces to be more than qualified to handle the knocks of a regatta and keep ticking accurately. The brand is also notorious for their marketing prowess, which led them to act quickly in establishing an association with the sport.

Beginning in 1958 with their first sponsorship of a race, the relationship has endured until today, when the brand sponsors over a dozen international yachting events.

Nevertheless, it’s hard to deny that there exists a large gap between first contact in 1958 and the release of the yacht-inspired timepiece in the early ’90s. Why wasn’t the Yacht-Master released earlier on?

Well, Rolex played around with the idea of yachting chronograph early on, though it never materialized. All that’s left of these trials are an extremely limited number of Daytona ref. 6239 chronograph prototypes with a 39mm case (vs standard 36mm) and modified regatta dials.

Unfortunately, the Yacht-Master concept was scrapped and would not reappear until decades later.

Rolex Submariner With Date Window

When it did return, none of the previous Yacht-Master’s DNA was there. Furthermore, the 1992 Yacht-Master was bizarrely similar to the 16610 Sub of the time.

Interestingly enough, Rolex folklore tells of a time in the ’80s when the brand sought to update their Submariner . What resulted was less of an update and more of an overhaul, manifested as what we know now as the first Yacht-Master.

Apprehensive of the repercussions that making such aggressive design changes to their staple offering could bring, the brand chose instead to release the watch intended to be a new Submariner as the reborn Yacht-Master instead.

The move worked, and the new Yacht-Masters started flying off the shelves. The Yacht-Master was perceived as a more luxurious Sub, though its bidirectional bezel proved useful for on-the-fly countdowns which are critical in sailing competitions. The waterproof nature of the Oyster case further cemented the Yacht-Master as the ideal first mate.

Mid-Size & Ladies’ Yacht-Master

In 1994, just two years after the debut of the 16628, Rolex would introduce the same design but in smaller case sizes. These were:

  • Ref. 68628: Yacht-Master “Mid-Size” in 35mm
  • Ref. 69628: Yacht-Master Ladies’ in 29mm

This marked the first time that Rolex ever offered one of their sports models in a smaller case size; all previous instances of case size changes were increases as opposed to reductions. It has been speculated that the smaller cases were intended for the Asian market.

Rolex Yacht-Master Yellow Gold 16628

In the same year, Rolex also offered the same 16628 but this time with a deep blue dial. Blue dials tend to make for broadly-liked watches, and coupled with the gold case and bracelet, the new version was once again a hit.

The Platinum (Rolesium) Yacht-Master

The next update to the model line would come in 1999 with yet another home-run: the Rolesium Yacht-Master. The new watch featured a stainless steel case and bracelet with a platinum dial and platinum-insert bezel. Rolesium, a term registered by Rolex back in the ’30s for a combination of steel and platinum in a watch, was finally put to use.

The new platinum Yacht-Master ref. 16622 was not only more accessible than the previous all-gold varieties, it was also more versatile. This would lead the 16622 variety to become the face of the Yacht-Master line.

In fact, many online resources erroneously label it the first Yacht-Master ever; this should offer an idea of how emblematic it is in the watch industry.

The 16622 also presented a new dial and hand style that would mark Rolex as a whole through to the modern day. The new Yacht-Master boasted what is now recognized as the “maxi dial”.

Yellow Gold Rolex Yacht-Master Blue Dial 16628

The maxi dial is characterized by oversized hour indices as well as larger hands at center. To the untrained eye, the difference may be difficult to spot, though experienced collectors will note the change instantly.

The maxi dial became the style of choice for all modern Rolex sports watches, though it got its start in the 1999 platinum Yacht-Master. A Submariner would first feature a maxi dial in 2003, with the release of the 50th anniversary Rolex Submariner “Kermit” (16610LV).

All versions of the Yacht-Master produced after the introduction of the maxi dial would also feature the new dial design. This included the blue, gold, and white dial versions from years past.

The Two-Tone (Rolesor) Yacht-Master

Six years after the Rolesium Yacht-Master came to be, Rolex would once more put on display their mixed-metal Rolesor style in the two-tone Yacht-Master 16623.

Two-Tone Rolex Yacht-Master Blue Dial 16823

The 2005 debuts possessed a 40mm steel case, a yellow gold bidirectional bezel, and a two-tone Oyster bracelet. As far as dials, many of the previous styles were also available like the black-on-white, though mother of pearl version were also introduced.

It was during Baselworld 2007 when Rolex would introduce the Yacht-Master’s younger and much larger sibling, the Yacht-Master II. Whereas the original Yacht-Master was very close functionally to the Sub, the Yacht-Master II was completely the opposite.

It can be said that the only overlap between the YM and the YMII is be the name, as the second iteration looks like a whole new watch. This time, though, it’s clear that the watch has been designed with the needs of yachting professionals in mind.

Rolex Yacht-Master II In Yellow Gold

The first Yacht-Master II were marked by a 44mm Oyster case, an Oyster bracelet, a white dial,  and a blue Cerachrom (ceramic) Ring Command bezel. The first two references, 116688 and 116689, were made of yellow gold and white gold, respectively.

Powering the YMII was another innovation – Rolex’s in-house calibre 4161. It features the COSC-chronometer certification and 72-hour power reserve that are today’s standard, though they were industry-leading at the time. Most notable, though, was the 4161 movement’s functions.

The new caliber boasted a “ programmable countdown with mechanical memory and on-the-fly synchronization. ” Naturally, the programming of the movement required the use of the Ring Command bezel, a feature which had also never been encountered on a Rolex watch before.

In later years, Rolex would go on to release Rolesor and full-steel versions of the Yacht-Master II, both of which have been relatively successful. The Yacht-Master II has certainly earned a spot in the brand’s catalog, and is sure to stick around for next couple of decades.

The Six-Digit Yacht-Master

Yacht-Master 116622

Twenty years after it debuted as the 16628, the Yacht-Master would see in 2012 the modernization that had been sweeping Rolex’s other model families.

Aside from receiving a new six-digit reference number (116622), subtle aesthetic changes were also present, as was an outstanding new dial option – the Cobalt Blue dial.

The case was now a “super case”, which retained the 40mm diameter but was styled differently. The bezel was now completely platinum, where previous versions were made of steel with a platinum insert. The Oyster bracelet had likewise been upgraded.

A platinum bezel / platinum dial option was still part of the collection and therefore received the same upgrades. Unfortunately, this iconic “albino” look would be completely discontinued in 2017.

The subsequent and most recent significant change to the Yacht-Master family took place in 2015, when Rolex first introduced the Everose Yacht-Master 40 ref. 116655.

Rolex Everose Yacht-Master On Oysterflex Bracelet

Rolex Everose Yacht-Master on Oysterflex bracelet

The newest iteration of the YM possessed some new features. The case was made of Everose, and the bezel now boasted a black Cerachrom insert. Securing the watch to the wrist was another Rolex first – the Oysterflex rubber ‘bracelet’.

Before the 116655, no Rolex watch had ever sported a rubber band. The brand still refers to it as a bracelet given the metal elements within the band, but these are not obvious even with the watch in the hand.

This same style of Yacht-Master would receive the next update in 2019, when Rolex introduced the Yacht-Master 42 in white gold.

What’s Next?

With the recent changes that the Yacht-Master line has had, it is clear that Rolex intends to keep this model family alive and well for years to come. Consumers are likewise responding to each new release, offering plenty of feedback with their pocketbooks.

Hands-On: Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Watch Reference 226627 In RLX Titanium

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

The visceral experience of wearing the Yacht-Master 42 titanium is very odd for any long-time Rolex fan. Rolex more or less helped create the 20th-century notion that you can often measure the value of a watch by feeling how solid and weighty it is. Rolex watches have never been designed for lightness, so most of them are quite hefty, and beloved for that reason. It is common for someone to admire a precious metal Rolex simply by feeling its mass in the open palm of your hand.

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

The Rolex Yacht-Master 42 was introduced in 2019 with tones very similar to this titanium model, but rather in 18k white gold and on a black Rolex Oysterflex strap. A yellow gold version was eventually added, and it seemed as though Rolex’s largest Yacht-Master was destined to be a precious-metal-only product. The 2023 226627 Yacht-Master 42 changes that paradigm by adding in a full grade 5 titanium case and matching bracelet to the product family. This is what people should consider the first “wearable” Rolex watch produced from titanium.

Even though Rolex uses the same grade 5 titanium as other brands, it focuses a lot on surface finishing and polishing for this timepiece. Rolex uses a sort of deep-grain engraving, which is somewhat different from the same effect on steel. Titanium as a color is also a bit darker than the comparatively bright 904L steel that most other (non-precious metal) Rolex sport watches are made out of. Titanium does scratch, and I asked Rolex about the service plan for the Yacht-Master 42 in RLX titanium. To make a long story short, Rolex will offer the same “case refresh” service for its titanium watches as it does for its steel and gold watches, though in reality, Rolex will have to use some special processes to polish titanium so that it looks fresh and new again. “RLX titanium” is really just Rolex’s way of indicating that it polishes and finishes titanium metal differently from other brands (according to Rolex).

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

Other than being in titanium with the matching bracelet, there isn’t too much new here. The Yacht-Master 42 case is 42mm-wide and has similar proportions as other watches in the larger Oyster Perpetual watch. The case is water resistant to 100 meters, and around the dial is a uni-directional rotating bezel with a matte-black ceramic insert that matches the matte-dark-gray tone of the Yacht-Master 42 dial.

Inside the watch is the Rolex in-house-made caliber 3235 automatic movement that operates at 4Hz with about 70 hours of power reserve. The movement offers the time with date and on the sapphire crystal is a Rolex “cyclops” magnifier lens. Titanium is considered by many engineers to be the perfect material for wristwatch cases. While I don’t think it is possible to ever determine “bests” in regard to an emotional product, it is true that you can easily enjoy the Yacht-Master 42 in titanium from purely a tool watch perspective. The lighter weight and large size give this 42mm-wide Rolex an interesting and desirable personality. It also makes us wonder whether or not there will be more titanium Rolex watches in the future. Possibly some, but I don’t think that Rolex, primarily a maker of conspicuous jewelry-style watches, will heavily focus on a material that will not hold a high polish as nicely as steel, gold, or platinum watches.

rolex yachtmaster revision kosten

For watch lovers and Rolex collectors, there really is a lot of novelty to wearing a Rolex watch in titanium simply because most people haven’t ever done so before. The sister brand Tudor has had the Pelagos, which, for a while, was really the more sober equivalent of this Rolex Yacht-Master 42 226627. It is also much less expensive, but it doesn’t have the iconic Oyster Perpetual case shape and the famous Submariner-style dial that this Yacht-Master does.

While the Yacht-Master 42 in RLX titanium raises a lot of interesting philosophical questions about what Rolex should and shouldn’t be doing, the product will be a commercial success given the current latent demand for high-end titanium sport watches and anything even remotely interesting from Rolex. Rolex has made it clear that production of the titanium Yacht-Master 42 is going to be limited in scope, in large part because there are so many pieces of titanium in the case, and especially the bracelet, that all need to bear precisely matching polishes and finishes. I don’t imagine that this watch is easy for Rolex to make, but we do know that Rolex could increase production of titanium watches if it ever wanted to. Price for the very interesting and comfortable reference 226627 Rolex Yacht-Master 42 in RLX titanium is $14,050 USD . Learn more at the Rolex watches website here .
