Thank you for looking at this mighty 16622 Rolex Yacht-Master.
This is a 2004 Rolex with original box and all manuals, purchase receipts, swing tags. But no official Rolex certificate. However there is a Certificate of Authenticity and Guarantee.
This is one of my favourite Rolex watches as it is a modern size (40mm) but feels like a 38mm or 39mm as it is very slim in hight so wears very easily. Not too big. Not too small. Perfection. Impossibly tough, yet elegant, classy and sophisticated too. How can that be possible?
Rolex Yacht-Master with just a few light 'daily wear' light scratches. This watch has never been polished, so its stainless steel case is looking as it should for a watch of this age.

A bit of info:
The first actual Rolex Yacht-Master, using the same 3135 movement as the Submariner, was introduced as the Ref 16628 in 1992 which as seen by the last number 8 in the reference number came in gold and only in gold. It was two years later that the watch could also be bought in two-tone gold and stainless steel. And then the Yacht-Master also comes in different sizes, the “ladies size” Ref 69628 (29mm) and the “gentlemen’s mid-size” Ref 68628 (34mm) next to existing 40mm.
1999 brings the new Yacht-Master to the spotlight, the Ref 16622. This is probably the most well known Yacht-Master with its platinum dial and bezel in the stainless steel case and still is very sought after. This watch reintroduced the trademark-term Rolesium dating from 1932 referring to certain stainless steel alloys of which the watch is made and it is this watch that created a waiting list like the Daytona did.
The Yacht-Master has not undergone many changes after. Except for it coming in more combinations of materials like the Rolesor, the word Rolex uses for gold/steel combination.
Aside from its practical functions, the Rolex Yacht-Master is nothing short of stunning. Made and engineered by Rolex to work perfectly, one will not be unsatisfied to own the attractive and commanding Rolex Yacht-Master. The full-size men’s Yacht-Master is measured at 40mm, however, the time-lapse bezel is quite substantial and gives the Yacht-Master a larger, heavier look. You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck with the Yacht-Master if you are looking for an “oversized” sport style watch.
Since 1992, there have been no major changes in design or mechanics for the Yacht-Master. The same 3135 automatic movement is used and the original aesthetics have stayed intact. The use of tritium on the dial markers have now been excluded and the eventual upgrade of inner bezel engraving in the late 2000s is the only significant change.
Watch is in perfect working condition and looks fantastic. Even the box and paperwork is in great condition!
Also included is a "Prestige Watches" cleaning cloth and a complimentary Leather watch roll/travel pouch.
Thank you for looking. Please get in touch with any questions. I'd love to hear from you. Have a great day.
