High-quality Luxury Rolex Yacht-Master 42

Historically, the Yacht-Master collection is the only Rolex sports watch available in multiple sizes; however, prior to the release of the Yacht-Master 42 (Ref. 226659), 40mm was the largest case size. Although the fake Rolex Yacht-Master 42 introduces a new, larger 42mm case to the collection, at the time of writing, this model is only available in a single configuration: a 42mm white gold case with a black dial, black ceramic bezel, and matching black Oysterflex strap.

At first glance, the Rolex Yachtmaster 42 226659 looks very similar to the 40mm Stellar Gold model, which also comes with an Oysterflex strap. Both models have black dials, matte black ceramic bezels with raised polished numerals, black Oysterflex straps, and Rolex’s in-house 3235 movements.
Compared to many of Rolex’s other watch collections, the Yacht-Master is a fairly young collection, having only just been added to the brand’s catalog in 1992. While replica Rolex initially built its reputation by producing tough tool watches, by the 1980s the brand had begun its transition into a full-blown luxury manufacturer, and the Yacht Masters collection was an unapologetic luxury created from the brand’s classic sports watches.
The Rolex Yacht Prestige largely follows the same overall design as the Submariner but leans more towards the flamboyant and extravagant side of the spectrum rather than being a tool dedicated to underwater timekeeping. Likewise, all Rolex Yacht Prestige watches feature precious metals in some part of their construction. Even the most humble models, made primarily of stainless steel, have solid platinum bezels, while the bezel insert of reference 226659 is made of black ceramic and the watch itself is made of solid 18-carat white gold.
Generally speaking, the Rolex Yacht Prestige was only available in solid yellow gold and in a 40 mm case. However, over time, the collection expanded to include other case sizes and materials, including two-tone and Rolesium references. 29 mm for the Ladies’ Yacht Prestige and 35 mm for the Midsize Yacht Prestige were both previously offered alongside the standard 40 mm model, but these two smaller versions were eventually discontinued in favor of the Midsize Yacht Prestige 37.
With this in mind, Baselworld 2019 marks the arrival of a new Yacht Prestige size and a new option of materials. With the general introduction of number 226659, replica Rolex Yachtmaster not only introduces a 42 mm case diameter for the first time in its history but also offers a solid 18-carat white gold case – something previously unavailable in the standard Yachtmaster collection.
