Famous Fans of the Rolex Yacht-Master
Rolex is well-known for creating watches for professionals. Divers have the Submariner, racecar drivers have the Daytona, and even more niched experts like speleologists have the Explorer.
When the Yacht-Master was launched in 1992, it was a luxurious, nautically-themed watch; but it evolved over the years to be a professional regatta watch. Today, its elegant design has fans beyond yacht clubs and regatta courses.
On the market for a Rolex Yacht-Master? Take your cue from these stars:
Mark sports the 40mm Rolex Yacht-Master in Everose Rolesor. The design combines robust Oystersteel with Rolex’s patented 18k rose gold alloy. Paired with a chocolate brown dial, the effect is not just luxurious, but also incredibly versatile and easy to wear.
Fed proudly sports the Rolesium Rolex Yacht-Master II. The watch combines an 18k white gold case with a 90 degree rotatable platinum bezel – making for a watch that’s luxurious, durable, and cutting-edge all at the same time.
Count on David Beckham to put his own stamp on his timepieces. He’s sporting a Rolex Yacht-Master 40 with a mother of pearl dial. Making use of a natural material means no two dials are alike.
To make it even more unique, he sports it with a fat strap leather bracelet, instead of the 18k yellow gold bracelet that it’s paired with.
One of the newest models of the Yacht-Master 40 is the Rolesium stainless steel and platinum watch with a dark rhodium dial. The subtle dual tone of the watch, topped with the icy blue Yacht-Master text and seconds hand, gives off a sleek and cool effect – just look at Bruce Willis.
The 40mm case size of the Rolex Yacht-Master also makes it a great fit for women who are into sports watches, just like Ellen DeGeneres. Her choice is one of the most distinct watches of the line – the 18k Everose gold model, with a matte black dial and Cerachrom bezel, and black Oysterflex bracelet.
The unusual combination of rose gold, black ceramic, and rubber makes this watch stand out not just from the Yacht-Master line, but from the rest of Rolex’s watches.
The UFC champion is not shy about flaunting his watches, so this striking Yacht-Master II is a perfect choice. Impressive in both size and design, the watch features a 44mm 18k yellow gold case, and a rotatable bright blue Ring Command Bezel.
Together with the regatta timer on the dial, the bezel works to accurately sync the watch with the starting sequence of a yacht race.
