Also very suitable for the city, loved by everyone for its always fitting style, Rolex has a very special relationship with the sea. This is testified by its history (which, in the early twentieth century, saw the official birth of a waterproof wrist watch), its special initiatives, its sponsorships and its models that take their name and challenges from the sea: from the Submariner to the Sea Dweller replica Panerai watches, passing through the Deep Sea, up to the Yacht-Master family, designed for yachting lovers.
It is not surprising, therefore, that one of the most coveted and talked-about innovations of this latest edition of Baselworld is the new Yacht-Master II, with a white gold case of the unusual size of 42 mm, certified movement and Oysterflex bracelet. A jewel from 25,950 euros to the public, which opens a big question: when it comes to fake Rolex, it is still possible to make some golden bargains.
Surprisingly, the answer is yes and not only because the models of the crown house have shown that they have a wide market price, but also because, analyzing auction results and online sales, there is still a reference of this line incomprehensibly undervalued professional: the Yacht-Master Ref. 16622 Rolesium.
Presented for the first time in 1999, this watch had a 40 mm steel case, was water resistant to 100 meters and was animated by an automatic movement with a date window. A watch that today represents a good deal for more than one reason: in the meantime, because a limited number of pieces have been produced (the model has not met the expected success and was replaced, in 2012, by a new Yacht-Master with blue dial), then for its iconic and refined silver dial with platinum bezel (a material rarely used by replica Rolex watches and only for very special models).
