Rolex continues to further pull back the cover on its 2012 collection of luxury wristwatches, now with details on the updated Yacht-Master sailing watch. First introduced in 1992, the sporty Yacht-Master lacks the rich, historical pedigree of its brethren, but that doesn’t make it any less esteemed in the collection. The 2012 iteration is presented in a 40mm case made of both 904L steel and platinum. Most notably updated, is the Yacht-Master’s 120-click bi-directional rotating bezel (most rotating bezels like those found on dive watches are uni-directional, as a safety measure) on a trigonal spring with platinum graduations to ensure consistent rotational torque throughout the life of the watch. The Yacht-Master will continue to be powered by Rolex’s in-house automatic self-winding movement, and will include the 904L steel Oyster bracelet. It will be available in both Blue Sunray, and Platinum Sand-Blasted dials.
