Rolex Yachtmaster 40 Steel Platinum Dial Bezel Mens Watch 16622
Rolex first introduced the Rolesium in 1999, with the ref 16622 Rolex Yachtmaster 40.
It features a 40mm case and bracelet made in 904L stainless steel, with a bidirectional bezel made entirely of 950 platinum. The bezel created interest by combining a matte sandblasted platinum background and raised glossy numerals on top. To complement this, it was also equipped with a sandblasted platinum bezel.
Prior to this, Rolex Yachtmaster models were only made in Rolesor yellow gold or solid yellow gold. The Rolesium model is a more muted version, but no less luxurious with the sparkle of platinum and the resilience of steel.
To complement the 40mm version, Rolex also presented this design in a 35mm midsize version and a 29mm ladies’ version.
