Rolex Yacht-Master II Ultimate Buying Guide

Rolex Yacht Master 2 buying guide

There are some Rolex watches that are more or less universally loved, with a simple and versatile aesthetic that leaves little room for any sort of animosity. However, there are others within the portfolio that almost seem to have been created specifically to invite controversy, taking the brand away from its traditional design base and into more contentious territories. The Rolex Yacht-Master II collection is one of those watches.

When it arrived in the mid-2000s, the Yachtmaster II was so far removed from anything Rolex had created before that nobody seemed to know quite what to make of it. The watch was a big, bold and extremely expensive addition to the catalog, and while it was obviously slotted into the brand’s Professional Collection, it stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb. However, that was back then. Looking at the brand’s catalog today, it seems that Rolex was simply ahead of the game.

The Yacht Master II’s once challenging looks have matured, and although it is still most definitely a visually striking watch, it is no longer considered completely over the top. Mechanically, it is also incredibly impressive. On its debut, it instantly became Rolex’s most complicated watch, with a one-of-a-kind functionality aimed at about as niche a group as you could imagine. Below we have laid out a complete guide to the Rolex Yacht-Master II with everything you need to know in order to make an informed decision.

Rolex Yacht-Master II History

Launched in 2007, the Rolex Yacht Master II debuted some 15-years after its original Yachtmaster namesake. However, the similarities between this watch and the model that first carried the Yacht-Master name are pretty much zero.

Where the earlier model is essentially a more luxurious take on the Rolex Submariner, the Yacht-Master II is a fully-fledged item of luxury professional sailing equipment, designed from the outset to assist skippers keep track of time during the complicated starting sequence of a regatta. That technically leaves the Yacht-Master II in the tool watch category, but this is a long way from the likes of the more utilitarian Explorer II and evidence of that can be found in its release schedule.

The first versions of the Rolex Yacht Master II to be unveiled were the 18k yellow gold ref. 116688 and the even more opulent 18k white gold version fitted with a platinum bezel, the ref. 116689. Quite a bit removed from the brand’s usually conservative styling, this large, gleaming, in-your-face effort that shouted its own name across its bezel, was an immediate opinion splitter. Traditionalists were horrified, lamenting Rolex’s continued straying from its roots, while others who enjoy having their watches noticed, embraced it wholeheartedly.

The financial crash that followed in 2008 altered the landscape for watchmakers (along with everyone else) and called for more affordable pieces to come forward. The Yachtmaster II collection expanded in 2011 with the unveiling of the ref. 116681, an Everose Rolesor model with a stainless steel case and outer bracelet links paired with a winding crown, pushers, and central links in Everose gold. That was followed by the version everyone was clamoring for in 2013 – the ref. 116680 in full stainless steel, which also introduced a new caliber, the Cal. 4161, replacing the former Cal. 4160.

The only other change the watch has undergone since then occurred on its 10th anniversary in 2017, when it was given a facelift so slight that Rolex didn’t even feel it warranted a new reference number. The square hour markers at the six and 12 o’clock were changed to a rectangle and inverted triangle respectively, and the simple stick handset was swapped for the Mercedes type to bring them in-line with much of the rest of the brand’s Professional Collection.

How Much Is A Rolex Yacht-Master II?

When the Rolex Yacht-Master II first arrived, the combination of its exclusively precious metal construction and the extraordinary engineering going on inside its movement meant that it was among the most expensive offerings in Rolex’s catalog . This left many admirers priced out of the picture, but the introduction of stainless steel and two-tone references would soon open the Yacht-Master II up to a much wider range of buyers.

The Rolesor model from 2011 sacrificed some of that wall-to-wall gold for 904L stainless steel and more or less cut the asking price in half, while the full steel version dropped the retail price even further. Today, brand-new examples vary from $18,750 for the full stainless steel model up to $48,150 for the white gold and platinum version. But what about pre-owned prices?

The rather love-it-or-hate-it visuals of the Rolex Yacht Master II means that it doesn’t attract quite the same level of universal frenzy as the Daytona or Submariner. It is not completely out of the question for an authorized retailer to even have a model or two in stock, which isn’t something that can be said about the vast majority of the brand’s other sports watches. For that reason, pre-owned models do command a bit of a premium, but nowhere near as much as some of the other models in the brand’s catalog.

You can expect to pay a minimum of around $18,000 for an unworn steel piece on the secondary market, while the Everose Rolesor edition comes in closer to about $25,000. The 18k yellow gold ref. 116688 also holds pretty steady, with most examples falling somewhere in the $40,000 to $45,000 range, depending on age and overall condition. Finally, the ref. 116689 – the top-of-the-line model in white gold and platinum, is where the biggest discounts can be found. A brand-new example costs $48,150 at an authorized dealer, but an older example on the pre-owned market can often be found for just under $30,000.

Rolex Yacht-Master II Design

The Yacht-Master II is arguably the least “Rolex-looking” Rolex watch ever made, which is the core reason behind why it ruffled so many feathers among purist collectors upon its release. It’s arrival took the brand down previously unexplored experimental paths, a very far cry from the sort of discreetly restrained icons present throughout the rest of its portfolio.

The Yacht-Master II is a hard-working watch with a lot of information to present and as a result, it has what initially looks like somewhat of a cluttered dial. However, a lot of that is down to a trick of the eye concerning the bezel’s 1-10 numerals being mirrored exactly around the horseshoe-shaped track on the face. This is obviously the regatta countdown scale, designed to help yacht skippers synchronize their boats’ movements with the race’s starting gun (we’ll get onto this more a little later).

What it means for the overall styling is a lot of numbers on the watch that you will not be using for the vast majority of the time you are wearing it. But while it may come across as a little jam-packed – particularly when you add in the chronograph hand, arrowhead countdown pointer, and a small running seconds sub-dial at the bottom – once you get used to it, you can’t help but be impressed with how much Rolex’s technicians have achieved with so little. No, it isn’t exactly the Explorer’s 3/6/9 arrangement, but it is perfectly readable with a little familiarity and conveys the information it provides in a clean and legible manner.

Despite only containing four models (all of which have white dials), the series actually covers a good range of tastes. The ref. 116688 could be in the running for most showy standard-production Rolex currently available, its all-yellow gold case somehow making the bright blue bezel pop even more. At the other end, the white gold and platinum ref. 116689 is as low-key and reserved as a 44mm wide, 14mm thick, highly-complicated, solid-gold sports watch can be. The virtual monochrome is lifted only by the red chrono hand and arrowed pointer.

In-between, the stainless steel and Everose Rolesor models do the job of appealing to more middle-of-the-road palates. Their color combinations, along with the mix of brushed and polished elements on the watch itself, keep it all on the right side of overdone, and the two-tone model’s bezel numerals also being filled in Everose gold is a nice touch. Unlikely to ever be described as subtle, any version of the Rolex Yacht-Master II is guaranteed to receive some attention.

Rolex Yacht-Master II Functions

Looks aside, the big talking point around the Rolex Yacht Master II lies in what it can do. There is a strong argument against calling the watch a genuine chronograph as it doesn’t so much keep track of elapsed time in the traditional sense, as it does count backwards from a specific starting point, up to a maximum of 10-minutes.

How is that useful? It is all down to how a professional regatta gets underway. Due to the nature of wind and water, it simply isn’t possible to get a bunch of yachts all lined up at a particular spot in the ocean and have them set off at the same time. Instead, the start of a race goes in stages, with each one marked by a gunshot or other audible signal. The first is usually sounded 10-minutes before the start (although it can also be seven or even five), and the skippers must maneuver their boats back and forth in front of the line without crossing it, jockeying with the other competitors for prime position.

There follows two further preparatory signals at precise intervals, and crews must coordinate their approach so they are as close to the start point as possible at the exact moment the race officially begins. It is that pair of additional signals that call into action one of the party tricks of the Yacht-Master II’s unique complication. Should the watch fall out of sync with the regatta reference clock for any reason, a press of the lower pusher activates the flyback (or fly-forward) function, snapping the chronograph hand to the nearest minute to allow the two timers to match up again. Even more notably, it is the only mechanical watch in the world with a programmable memory, meaning the wearer can reset back to the specified original countdown point at any time.

Giving access to all this engineering virtuosity is what Rolex has dubbed its Ring Command Bezel. This was the first appearance of the concept, with the second generation taking control of the Sky-Dweller’s myriad of functions a few years later. On both models, the bezel is directly linked to the internal movement, and on the Yacht-Master II, it acts as an analogue on/off switch. Rotating it 90° unlocks the functionality and allows for the countdown timer to be set with the crown. Turning it back again locks everything in place, and engages the memory. The watch is then operated as a standard chronograph, with the top pusher activating the starts and stops, and the bottom taking charge of the reset or flyback/fly-forward functions.

For a manufacturer not renowned for the complexity of its watches (quite the opposite, in fact) Rolex’s regatta timer is a seriously impressive performer. It may have been created for an especially select group, but it is truly surprising how useful it can be to count down accurately from 10-minutes, even for those of us who may not own a yacht – particularly if you like your pasta al dente.

Rolex Yacht-Master II Movement

The first run of the Rolex Yacht-Master II was powered by the in-house Caliber 4160. At the time, it was the most component-heavy movement the brand had ever created, but it was essentially a heavily reworked version of the Cal. 4130 from the Daytona. The column wheel, vertical clutch and ball-bearing rotor were all carried over from the brand’s legendary racing chronograph.

Obviously there is nothing wrong with that, and the Rolex Daytona’s movement remains one of the most reliable and accurate mass-produced chronograph calibers of the modern era. However, with the arrival of the long-awaited stainless steel Yacht-Master II in 2013, Rolex also unveiled a new mechanism, the Caliber 4161, the product of additional refinements and some 35,000 hours of development.

Made up of over 360 components, including those produced via a highly specialized fabrication process called UV-LiGA which uses ultraviolet light to build microstructures, this dedicated movement provided a crisper feel to the pushers and greater reliability. With that in mind, both the Cal. 4160 and the Cal. 4161 benefitted from Rolex advances such as the blue Parachrom hairspring, as well as providing users with a highly-respectable 72-hour power reserve and a 28,800vph balance frequency.

Rolex Yacht-Master II Bracelet

At the present time, all of the various Rolex Yacht-Master II models are fitted with the three-link Oyster bracelet, as befits a true sports watch. On each version, the inner links have been given a high polish to match the gleaming case, while the outer links receive a satin finish to provide a contrast against the lugs.

As for material, the bracelet is crafted from the same metal as the watch head: stainless steel, yellow gold or white gold. With the Rolesor example, the innermost links are forged from Everose gold, leaving the outer side links in 904L stainless Oystersteel. Tying it all together is the Oysterlock folding clasp, equipped with the brand’s Easylink extension system that allows for approximately 5mm of tool-free bracelet adjustment, completely on the fly and without the use of any tools.

The Yacht-Master II was something of a retaliation from Rolex against decades-worth of naysayers criticizing the brand for the lack of complicated watches in its lineup. Rolex’s rebuttal, while not the most all-encompassing in terms of looks or utility, still stands as a hugely significant piece of technical dexterity. Rolex has always produced tool watches, but as the company continues to make the transition towards being a true luxury manufacturer, the tool watches it produces also take on a more luxurious nature and the Yacht-Master II perfectly embodies this. Large and uncompromising, it is perhaps the most eccentric model Rolex has to offer – and it is always happy to take center stage.

Hands-On – The Updated Rolex Yacht-Master II (and a look back at its great features)

Rolex Yacht-Master II 116680 - 2017 Version

Using the term ‘update’ when describing the “new” Rolex Yacht-Master II is almost an exercise in irony, as the changes made by the “Crown” to its Regatta watch are minimal. However, the reality is that we indeed have a new iteration of this niche model, although there has been no change to its reference number ( Ref. 116680 for the steel version ). Sounds like a good opportunity to look back at the Yacht-Master II and its great functionality.

The Updated Rolex Yacht-Master II

To keep things brief, the update concerns the dial only. In fact, details of the dial. The main objective of Rolex was to increase the legibility of this professional watch, in order to make sure that no confusion can possibly arise – and probably give it a bit more of Rolex DNA. For that, the dial of the Rolex Yacht-Master II now features a triangular hour marker at 12 o’clock and a rectangular hour marker at 6 o’clock for more intuitive reading of the watch – instead of square markers all around the dial. 12 and 6 markers are now clearly distinguished from the rest of the dial.

Rolex Yacht-Master II 116680 - 2017 Version

The hands have also been updated. Before this facelift, the YM II featured rather thin baton hands (blued on the steel version, or matching the case on gold versions) with a splash of luminescent material. As of 2017, the Yacht-Master will rely on the iconic “Mercedes” hand for the hour, with a large luminescent disc, clearly distinguishing it from the minute hand -which is still a baton shape, however it now features a cut-out section so as not to obstruct the view of the Regatta countdown. This configuration is available for all Yacht-Master II models: in steel (Ref. 116680), in Everose Rolesor version combining steel and 18k Everose gold (Ref. 116681), in 18k yellow gold (ref. 116688) and in 18k white gold with platinum bezel (Ref. 116689).

Rolex Yacht-Master II 116680 - 2017 Version

For the rest, the Rolex Yacht-Master II remains unchanged. It still relies on its 44mm case water-resistant to 100m, an Oyster bracelet with Oysterlock folding safety clasp and Easylink 5mm comfort extension link (the center link of the bracelet remains polished, while the rest is satin-finished), a Triplock winding crown, protected by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case, screwed caseback (plain, no sapphire crystal) and a blue ceramic bezel with platinum- or gold-PVD numerals and inscriptions (with the exception of the white gold version, which keeps it sold platinum bezel).

Inside, is the impressive calibre 4161, a mechanical chronograph movement with column wheel and vertical clutch exclusive to the Rolex Yacht-Master II ( very different from the 4130 of the Daytona ), with automatic winding in both directions, 72-hour power reserve, antimagnetic Parachrom hairspring and large balance wheel with variable inertia. This complex movement is, as is every Rolex calibre, certified as a  Superlative Chronometer,  having satisfied a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria, which exceed the COSC standards and which applies to the fully assembled watch, after casing the movement. This results in a a -2/+2 sec/day accuracy and a 5-year warranty.

The Rolex Yacht-Master II in Action

The Rolex Yacht-Master II is a chronograph, however a very special type of chronograph, also called a Regatta watch or a Skipper watch. Indeed, don’t expect it to measure intervals of time, like most chronographs. For that, you should take a look at the iconic Daytona , a watch made to measure speeds (or anything else from one instant of time to another). The YM II is different. It features a programmable countdown with a mechanical memory that can be synchronized on the fly. This watch, as we said in the intro, is very niche , answering to the specific needs for precise timing during the crucial starting sequence of a regatta.

While this might sound complex at first, and while the display of its dial is rather unique, the Rolex Yacht-Master II is, on the contrary, an extremely intuitive watch. This watch is all about man / machine interaction and natural use of the commands, thanks to one clever feature, the “ Ring Command Bezel ” (which is now also used in the Sky-Dweller ) and refers to a bezel that is not there to keep track of events but is integrated in the chain of actions and interacts directly with the movement.

Rolex Yacht-Master II 116680 - 2017 Version

Because the crown and the two pushers were already utilized to set time / wind the movement or act on the start / reset of the chronograph functions, Rolex had to imagine a new way to set the countdown, without adding a third pusher on the case (which in Rolex’s minds would have been heresy). The idea was to create a bezel that interacts with the movement. Rotating the bezel 90° gives access to the programming function of the countdown duration, which is set via the winding crown. Turning the Ring Command bezel back in the other direction then locks and memorizes the programming.

How does it work in real life – or at least during a regatta? Unlike racing cars, regatta boats can’t stand immobile on a starting line. Thus, they sail around the starting line, waiting for the departure, which means it’s crucial to know the exact moment of the departure. The starting procedure of a regatta generally unfolds in three stages, marked by sound and visual signals. This preparatory phase lasts from 5 to 10 minutes according to the type of regatta. This where you start to use the Rolex Yacht-Master II for what it is.

Rolex Yacht-Master II 116680 - 2017 Version

The procedure in details:

  • Phase 1 – programming – The skipper programmes a countdown duration of up to 10 minutes on his Yacht-Master II according to the regatta rules. For that, he just needs to rotate the bezel 90 degrees, set the right duration with the crown and the central red arrow hand on the dial will position to the right timing. Once programmed, the countdown duration is mechanically memorized so that when the countdown is reset, it automatically keeps exactly the same setting. Rotating the bezel back to its initial position locks and memorizes the programming.
  • Phase 2 – launching the countdown – a gun shot and a flag signal the start of the regatta countdown. The skipper launches the countdown by pressing the pusher at 2. The centre seconds hand starts running and indicates elapsed seconds in the same way as a traditional chronograph. The red arrow hand indicates the remaining minutes on the 10- to 0-minute countdown scale on the dial.
  • Phase 3 – Synchronization – Race officials give a first preparatory signal by firing the gun a second time and hoisting another flag. The skipper has an opportunity to synchronize the watch countdown with the official countdown – to make sure his timing session is precise . For that, he’ll just have to press the pusher at 4 that acts like a flyback. The second hand (and only that hand, the countdown hand still runs) reset on the fly and it runs again as soon as the pusher is released. The countdown minute hand is automatically synchronized to the nearest minute to compensate for any premature or delayed launch of the chronograph at the first signal.
  • Phase 4 – Synchronization 2, one minute before the start – A second preparatory signal is given with a blast of a horn, and the lowering of a flag. The skipper can check at a glance that the countdown of the Yacht-Master II is properly synchronized with the official timing.
  • Phase 5 – start of the race – A last gun shot and lowering of a flag indicates the start of the race. If the skipper managed to use the Yacht-Master II correctly, it will accurately indicate the departure time to the closest second. With this, he or she will benefit from the advantage of knowing exactly what time the race has officially started.

Rolex Yacht-Master II 116680 - 2017 Version

As you’ve seen, the Rolex Yacht-Master II is a complex watch, with a proper purpose-built concept behind it. Of course, it shouldn’t be reduced just to the regatta use, however this function remains very restricted outside of this context. The Yacht-Master II is a often seen as a statement watch, as the largest proposition in the catalogue (together with the Deep-Sea), with the exclusivity of being available in various materials, including precious ones.

Rolex Revamp 2024: Here’s What’s Discontinued

Do you happen to have a Rolex Yacht Master II or Datejust with Palm Motif on your hands? Chances are, if you want to capitalize on them, it might be a good time to sell, since Rolex has just announced it’s discontinuing these models

The most anticipated event on every watch enthusiast’s calendar – Watches and Wonders – brought with it, along with a plethora of new launches from both legacy and indie watchmakers  (which you can read all about in our detailed report) , a sweeping discontinuation of certain timepieces. Rolex is one maison that, in line with the time-honored tradition, once again announced the models it will no longer manufacture. 

Here’s an overview of all the discontinued Rolex models:

In 1992, Rolex released the Yacht-Master, a watch that seemed to piggyback on the success of its first nautical-inspired timepiece, the Submariner. This new model boasted several changes, including a larger size of 39.5mm and an etched bezel insert permanently affixed to the bezel. The hands and markers were also increased in size, while the edges were smoothed and rounded for sturdiness and durability - qualities synonymous with all Rolex watches. The triple-lock crown ensured water resistance up to 330 feet. In 1994, two new editions were introduced – a mid-sized 35mm reference for the Asian market and a 29mm version for women. Five years later, Rolex elevated the Yacht-Master's design by introducing a stainless steel and platinum version at the Basel Fair.

The Rolex Palm Motif and Fluted Datejust collections, beloved by watch enthusiasts for their intricate laser-etched dials, have been discontinued. Some speculate that this decision may indicate a waning interest in such ornate timepieces, while others argue it is simply the end of an era for these iconic Rolex models. The former models were dubbed "The Jungle Datejust" for their metallic palm motifs in varying shades of green, creating an asymmetrical and captivating design. The variations of such designs were, of course, nearly endless – the Fluted and Palm dials came also in gold and silver colors with the latter also presented in stunning midnight blue. But with their discontinuation, we bid farewell to this defining era in Rolex's history and only hope for it to somehow resume in new and unexpected ways.

Discontinued Rolex Daytona Le Mans

Rolex Shakes Up Collection: Here Are All The Models Discontinued In 2024

When the highly-anticipated Rolex Daytona Le Mans was finally revealed in 2023, it was a momentous occasion. Not only was it a rare special edition from the Swiss powerhouse, but it also commemorated the brand's partnership with the legendary endurance race. However, just months after its release, Rolex decided to discontinue the white gold version. Perhaps it was because the watch was created to celebrate the centennial anniversary of Le Mans, which had now passed in 2024. But this unexpected move has left collectors scrambling for the coveted timepiece, and prices on the gray market are sure to skyrocket. To add even more intrigue, Rolex has announced a new yellow-gold version in its place. 

Discontinued Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea

Rolex Shakes Up Collection: Here Are All The Models Discontinued In 2024

Many of us have caught the yellow gold Deepsea at Watches & Wonders 2024 , which signaled a significant change within their renowned Sea-Dweller collection. The highly-desirable Deepsea will now stand on its own as a distinguished collection, with all previous models bearing the "SEA-DWELLER" name being discontinued. Although the reference number for the stainless steel Deepsea ref. 136660 remains unchanged, all dials released after 2024 will only feature the bold "DEEPSEA" inscription, including the classic black dial and the striking James Cameron blue-to-black gradient. A defining move for Rolex's future in watchmaking.

Indian Billionaire Anant Ambani Gifts 25 Limited Edition Audemars Piguet Watches

Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have definitely come across Indian Billionaire Anant Ambani's wedding on social media. Mukesh Ambani, one of the richest people in Asia, reportedly spent close to AED 2.2 Billion at his son's wedding. With a huge chuck of that money spent on clothing, jewelry, and yes our favorite watches, they have left the fans admiring their taste in fashion. While the talk of the town has been the various brooches Anant wore during his wedding functions, we as watch aficionados would love to focus on the watches instead.

Limited Edition APs Gifted to Close Friends

Anant was surely grateful to have his close friends around at the wedding. So grateful that he wanted to present his groomsmen with a special gift. With this gift, he wanted to express his own love for watches while also getting them something extremely special that they will remember forever. Hence, Anant put up a request at Audemars Piguet to get a set of 25 Special Limited Edition models that only his friends would get.

Since this was a model made on request, we do not have much information about it. From the pictures seen on social media, it looks to be a limited edition variant of the APRoyal Oak Perpetual Calendar 26584OR. The watch features a 41mm 18k Rose Gold Dial that sits inside a Rose Gold case. The dark blue sub-dials create a nice contrast while also bringing your attention towards the moon phase indicator.

Labeled as the Luminary Edition, the special edition Audemars Piguet watch was gifted to some of popular personalities including Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh and Meezan Jafri. The watch was even gifted to some of his other close friends including Shikhar Pahariya and Veer Pahariya.

Anant’s Wrist Throughout the Wedding Functions

While the limited edition AP was reserved for the groom’s close friends, the groom himself shocked everyone with some very very rare pieces. Some of the watches in Anant’s collection are even 1 of 1 pieces made specially for him. The watch collection of Anant Ambani include the following watches.

AP Royal Oak Offshore Pave

At one of the wedding functions, Anant Ambani was spotted wearing a Royal Oak Offshore reference 26423BC.ZZ.2100BC.01. The watch is fully paved with brilliant-cut diamonds and features contrasting black accents. The watch even gets an interchangeable bracelet, so you can bring the dazzling look of diamonds a bit down and make the watch a bit more subtle for a different occasion. The 43mm case of the watch is crafted out of White Gold and it is just 14.4mm thick. Even the dial of the watch features brilliant-cut diamonds and it gets black chronograph counters.

To break it down, the Royal Oak Offshore features 162 brilliant-cut diamonds on the case. The bezel gets 32 diamonds whereas the dial is covered with 189 diamonds. A total of 907 brilliant cut diamonds were used to cover the bracelet and the buckle alone had 40 diamonds. The current market value of the watch sits at around AED 1.5 million.

Richard Mille RM 27-02 Tourbillon Rafael Nadal

With the bride and groom wearing orange at one of the functions, the watch aficionado inside Anant had to go for a matching RM 27-02 Rafael Nadal. Limited to just 50 pieces in the world, this Richard Mille features a manual winding Tourbillon movement. It features a Carbon bezel and orange strap on it helps the watch to really stand out.

Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon

Patek Philippe Sky

Anant’s love for watches was further showcased with the extremely rare Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon that was spotted on his wrist at one of the events. The reference 6002R-001 is crafted out of 18-karat Rose Gold. The 44mm Patek Philippe watch features a rich brown enameled dial. With engravings all over the case and the hands, this one is an absolute work of art. The double-faced watch has an estimated market value of around a whopping AED 22 million.

Wrist Watching: Fidel Castro Wearing Rolex

by Nick Gould

Mention the name Fidel Castro in watch circles and the first thing that springs to mind is the Rolex GMT-Master with bi-color bezel that was so frequently seen on his wrist throughout his life next to the gold Rolex Datejust that he wore on the same wrist. The consensus seems to be that Castro wore two watches to keep the time in both Havana and Moscow handy; it is unknown whether he realized that the GMT-Master already offers two time zones.

And while choosing Rolex might seem paradoxical in the face of the communist principles he defended Soviet politicians also wore Rolex watches, including Leonid Brezhnev. Perhaps this explains why Rolex was Castro’s brand of choice.

Castro first wore a Reference 6542 GMT-Master with Bakelite bezel – Bakelite being the first synthetic plastic, and one used for a while for colorful watch bezels – followed by a Reference 1675 with aluminum bezel insert.

Fidel Castro circa 1958

When Castro succeeded with his coup d’etat against president and leader of Cuba Fulgencio Batista in 1959, he was already sporting a Rolex on his wrist.

Greeting crowds of people in Havana in January 1959, Castro did not sport a GMT-Master, but rather the other famous timepiece by the “crowned” Swiss maker: the venerable Submariner. I deduce from the size of the crown that Castro was wearing a Reference 6536 Submariner.

The familiar diving bezel of the Submariner with its marked indications is clearly visible along with the recognizable black dial displaying luminous dot markers and the Oyster bracelet. Here Castro was wearing another (unidentifiable) timepiece on a leather strap.

It was thought that Castro obtained the watch after he and his fellow revolutionaries entered Havana in January of 1959, but this is not the case. A variety of photos from 1958 show Castro was already sporting the Submariner along with another timepiece on a leather strap.

A pre-1959 photo from AP (at top) shows Castro wearing two watches on leather straps; he later replaced one of these with the Submariner.

The photo below shows Castro with his son in the Havana Hilton. Castro is wearing his Submariner, while his son is holding a gold Rolex that is most likely a Day-Date with its familiar “President” bracelet.

However, it is also possible that Castro placed a Datejust head on a President bracelet as some photographs I found do allude to this.

I was flabbergasted upon discovering a photo of Castro with Che Guevara in which the clasp of Castro’s gold Rolex is visible: and this clasp features an engraving!

At first, I thought it was an engraving of some symbols, but after further research I found they are letters: you can make out the “FCR.”

Castro’s full name was Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz; as per Spanish-language custom, the maiden name of a child’s mother is included at the end of a family’s name, so Castro put his initials, FCR, on the clasp.

This was quite a surprise and one that means that Castro’s personalized gold Rolex Datejust is still out there waiting to be discovered.

My thanks to Charles Tearle for assisting me with the identification of Castro’s Submariner and other observations as well as to Eric Ku for helping me figure out it wasn’t symbols, but letters engraved on Castro’s gold Rolex Datejust.

And thanks to Jake Ehrlich of Jakes Rolex World who first discovered and published photos of Castro with his watches.

Quick Facts Rolex GMT-Master Reference 6542 Case: 40 mm, yellow gold with Bakelite bezel insert Movement: automatic Caliber 1036; 2.5 Hz/18,000 vph frequency, chronometer certified Functions: hours, minutes, seconds; date, GMT Years of production: 1954-1959

He died a billionaire. Should’ve equally distributed Rolexes to his 11 Million prisoners.

Ha

But he didn’t die a billionaire…

Lol no he didn’t

Michael White

While that watch was expensive for the day. I doubt even a vintage example is worth 10k, nor with inflation would it’s price be 10k. I believe in 1950s a Datejust or even the Submariner sold in the $500 to $750 range.

Collin Graves

But it is, though. $750 in 1950’s dollars is $7,833 in 2019 dollars.

Gold was 35 dollars. Now do the math.

21 oz of gold. It was 35 dollars an oz.

But..

But it didn’t cost anywhere close to 10k..

Ian E

Not someone, I imagine, with whom Rolex would wish to be linked. And yet another example of why communism is such a dreadful ideology.

Allan

Hear, hear!

Gil

I suppose it was long before Rolex became associated with ostentatiousness, but it’s still a bit…y’know. Something from the VEB Glashutte Uhrenbetriebe would’ve been a more appropriate watch for him, maybe.

Jerry

Exercising freedom of speech, no comment should have to be approved. What more evidence to see that socialism and/or communism are bullcrops. It is perfect slavery: Physical and mental. The equality that they preach is perfect lie. When Castro wore Rolex the rest wore rubber bands. When Castro ate caviar the rest ate and still continue to eat egg. Castro died a billionaire and the rest are in poverty. All in the name of the bullcrop of embargo and imperialist gringo just to overshadow tgeir greed for money and power at the expense of their people. Trying to hide their incompetent and greed. Psychpaths, including Maduro.

Mike

What a great idea for a series:

“Murderers/Tyrants and their watches”

What’s wrong with you?

Spiros

I would add ” Presidents” to “Murders / Tyrants” series and would not miss how President Bush jr had his gold Rolex stolen during his visit in Albania!!!!

Jonny

Are you liberal retards in love with this worthless scum?

Alex

Need to address facts before making assumptions. – What was the cost of the Rolex at the time? – Who purchased? – What was the purpose of the use?

Mike

I wonder if Castro’s “firing squad guests” had their watches purloined for distribution to “The People” i.e. Castro/Che/et al??

Alex

Castro knew the GMT had two zones. He had DC, Moscow, Havana on the watches. Now DC and Havana are utc5, one used to be 4.

The Cuban

To all you ignorant haters. THOUGH YOU WERE DEAD YET SHALL YOU LIVE. John 11:25 Just mentioning he’s name you keep him alive. VIVA FIDEL !!! And viva Rolex too.

El Erre

Well, then the consensus seems to be wrong. As Fidel himself explained: “We were wearing two watches all the time because we have experienced that one watch may let you down. Punctuality is so important in military operations. So, we always wore two. Then, it turned into a habit.”

And as for the Rolex: this tradition started on the 2 December 1956 when Castro gave Rolex watches to commanders in Cuba, including Che Guevara, because they were tough watches in battlefield conditions.

In most of the photos, Che and Castro appear wearing two watches, a fact the former Cuban president explained as the following: “We were wearing two watches all the time because we have experienced that one watch may let you down. Punctuality is so important in military operations. So, we always wore two. Then, it turned into a habit.”

Bobby

Look at all the rich, ignorant babies who can’t imagine a military commander actually needing a reliable, durable timepiece in the 1950s before there were mass-produced waterproof/shockproof/etc. quartz watches. Dude liberated an entire country on the sea, in the mountains, in the jungles. Probably wanted the watch made by the company that invented waterproof watches lol. Viva Fidel, Viva Cuba!

Lucio Gazzera

A lot of ‘muricans

That’s not Fidel Castro, that’s his brother Raul Castro…

Danay

Rolex should do a campaign with Hitler next! This is highly offensive to all those people he assassinated and the millions that are still suffering, not to mention all those who have died trying to flee Cuba. How dare you Rolex! Shame on you!

Deep confidence

Beneath the surface.

Launched in 1953, the Rolex Submariner is the first divers’ wristwatch to be waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet) – now 300 metres (1,000 feet). Its major features, such as the graduated rotatable bezel, the luminescent display, the large hands and hour markers, have been a driving force in the creation of the long line of Rolex divers’ watches which followed.

The Submariner is an iconic timepiece whose renown now extends beyond the professional world it was first designed for. The Submariner, the ultimate standard.

A true divers’ watch by design

As an underwater survival tool, this watch’s design has been entirely dictated by the practical needs of divers. Since 1953, the Submariner has evolved technically and aesthetically as it has been endowed with features to improve overall functionality. The first watch was a pioneer and its subsequent versions have continued to set the benchmark for divers’ watches.

Monitor diving time

The Submariner’s unidirectional rotatable bezel is key to the functionality of the watch. Its engraved 60-minute graduation allows divers to monitor their time underwater. Manufactured by Rolex from a hard, corrosion-resistant ceramic, the Cerachrom bezel insert is virtually scratchproof and its colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays, seawater or water that is chlorinated. In addition, thanks to its chemical composition, the high-tech ceramic is inert and cannot corrode.

The Submariner’s unidirectional rotatable bezel has knurled edges that offer excellent grip when setting the dive time, even when wearing gloves. It rotates notch by notch, accompanied by distinctive clicks.

Triple waterproofness system

The Submariner’s Oyster case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 300 metres (1,000 feet), provides the movement with optimal protection from water and dust. The Triplock winding crown – fitted with a triple waterproofness system – screws down securely against the case, ensuring watertight security.

Chromalight display

The Chromalight display is an innovation that improves visibility in dark environments, an essential feature for divers. An innovative luminescent material emitting a blue glow is applied to the hands, hour markers and the capsule on the bezel.

Hour markers in simple shapes – triangle, circle, rectangle – and broad hour and minute hands enable instant and reliable reading to prevent any risk of confusion underwater.
