Introducing The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 With Multi-Color Gem-Set Bezel

We have seen several iterations of this sporty watch in various sizes, such as 40mm, 37mm, and 35mm, along with the yacht-master ii, but this is the first time we have seen the yacht-master 40 set with rolex’s famous gemstones..

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

The Yacht-Master has been a consistent part of the Oyster Perpetual collection since its debut in 1992 . We have seen several iterations of this sporty watch in various sizes, such as 40mm, 37mm, and 35mm, along with the Yacht-Master II, but this is the first time we have seen the Yacht-Master 40 set with Rolex’s famous gemstones. And boy is this one set with gemstones.

The new Rolex Yacht-Master 40 with gem-set bezel.

The latest Yacht-Master 40 is pretty much the same watch we know from 2015 , with the addition of a bright gem-set bezel. The watch still features a 40mm 18k Everose gold case (in case you forgot, Everose is Rolex’s special rose gold alloy) and has the rich glossy black dial with oversized white lume plots (Chromalight to be exact) and Everose surrounds. The movement is still the same trusty automatic caliber 3135 movement and the watch can still boast 100 meters (330 feet) of water resistance. 

The new thing about this watch is the rainbow-colored rotating bezel. I have talked about Rolex’s impeccable gem-setting technique before, and while it is clearly not for everyone, it deserves your respect. Here the bezel is set with 32 sapphires, eight tsavorites, and one diamond, fitted perfectly together, creating a vibrant look on an otherwise sporty timepiece.

The new Rolex Yacht-Master has the Oysterflex strap featured on the previous iteration.

Finally, this watch is finished with a black Oysterflex rubber strap (which was developed and patented by Rolex) and 18k Everose Oysterlock clasp. There's no news yet on pricing for this watch, but we will update this story as soon as it becomes available. Be sure to check back soon for live photographs too.

Hands-On: Rare Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Watch & A Case For The Gem-Set Watch

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

The Rolex Yacht-Master 40 watch reference 126679SABR is one of the more exotic modern Rolex watches that the company rarely feels inclined to communicate about. These all get sold, anyway, and it could be argued that watches like this might very well confuse the image that at least some in the target demographic have of Rolex — even if there’s no doubt these gem-set, limited-production pieces are proper Rolex watches through and through.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Photography by David Bredan

It’s probably best that we kick things off by addressing the elephant in the room. Priced at just around $80,000 USD, this Rolex Yacht-Master 126679SABR is over $50,000 more expensive than a run-of-the-mill solid-gold Yacht-Master 40 presented on the same Oysterflex rubber strap with the same “intense black” dial and the same 70-hour power reserve Rolex Calibre 3235 self-winding movement. That’s $50,000 for a gem-set bezel, four diamond-set lugs, and two diamond-set crown guards. I’m sure we could all put together a long list of epic watches that offered more horological wow factor for those 50, let alone 80 large ones. From a solid-gold Lange Zeitwerk to a Ulysse Nardin Moonstruck to another one of my all-time personal favorites, the Breguet Tradition Chronograph Indépendant 7077 ( hands-on here ), it boggles the mind how much unfiltered watchmaking greatness one can attain for $80,000.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

And yet, the ultimate question remains: What entertains more? The calculated accuracy with which tiny wheels mesh to power complicated displays or a tiny row of blatantly superfluous little stones that so clearly serve no other purpose than to amaze, impress, and communicate one’s wealth and status? One thing is for sure: Only a small minority of watch enthusiasts tend to claim they got into watches because of such haute joaillerie watches, and that puts these high-jewelry pieces at a disadvantage when it comes to garnering their appeal and approval.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Maybe among the reasons why these gem-set watches are under-appreciated by so many is that watchmakers rarely dedicate effort to show the watch enthusiast community what makes these pieces so difficult to make. Or maybe it’s that lavishly gem-set pieces tend to get less attention in watch media because they are hard to come by and are rarely met with the same enthusiasm as similarly priced mechanically complicated watches.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

The 18k white-gold case of the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126679SABR is decorated with 46 brilliant-cut diamonds.

That is a shame, really, because to prepare, assemble, and finish such a bezel and case takes no less expertise, dexterity, patience, and mastery of one’s craft than it takes to finish the beveled edges on a bridge and assemble a relatively complex mechanical movement. Just as the gears and pinions have to be carefully adjusted for them all to mesh and sit flush between the plate and the bridge inside a caliber, the room for error when fitting the stones in these bezels and cases is just as punishingly small.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Whereas mechanical movements are judged by the refinement of their finish — such as their hand-applied, polished, beveled edges called anglage — and the accuracy and poise with which the movement and its displays operate, gem-set watches have their own set of criteria by which the best can be differentiated from the mediocre. One such defining characteristic is the quality of the setting, more specifically that all stones — 40 trapeze-cut sapphires and diamonds, and a triangle-cut diamond as the zero marker on the 126679SABR— are perfectly flush and level. In practice, this means that as one is looking down at the watch and is gently moving it around, the top facet (also known as the “table”) of each component lights up in a flat, white reflection in perfect succession. If any one of the stones were set at an angle ever-so-slightly off, it would forever be visible under every lighting condition.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Whereas the myth of diamond scarcity is more or less busted, manufacturers can still claim that the high-quality colored stones such as sapphires and emeralds used in these watches remain challenging to source and work with. You see, each stone only shows its true color after it’s been pre-cut, and so only gems pre-cut and pre-selected for their particular hue can then be cut to the exact specification. It takes a large batch and a great deal of effort to sort these stones by color, and then high levels of dexterity to carefully set them without damaging any one of the pre-selected stones. Rolex has its own in-house gemmology department where it checks and works with all the precious and semi-precious stones used in its watches and compares the stones against certified master stones. Rolex admits to using “specialist tools, including some that are specially designed by the brand” to insure the quality and uniformity of its stones.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Once the stones have been selected, each needs to be cut within tolerances barely larger than those used for the fabrication of movement parts — we are talking about two-hundredths of a millimeter here, which is around a quarter of the diameter of a human hair. That’s the wiggle room when cutting each stone by hand. This goes in tandem with the precision of the bezel and its cavity milled to accommodate the stones. Why such precision? Because without it a bezel like this couldn’t be completed as the last stone to be set simply wouldn’t fit. What you see here is referred to as channel setting, more rarely as “baguette setting,” where the stones are held in between two metal rails from above and below and are stacked side-by-side up against each other. As is so often the case with some of the most challenging tasks, the end result looks deceivingly simple, easy, and straightforward.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

The work begins with a hollowed-out bezel in 18k gold, and the first stone in a row of 41 is set. The stone is gently placed in the groove and its flushness against the top and bottom rail is checked. If it is too high — which is the only thing it can be, to give room for fine adjustment — the gem-setter will adjust the cavity with a graver. Rolex claims this set-remove-adjust process is repeated three times, on average, with each stone, until the table of the gem is perfectly aligned with the bezel. Then the rest of the stones are set, removed, adjusted, and set again, to align the level and the angle of their table with the stone that has come before them. The same basic truth applies here as does with case finishing: Material that’s once been removed cannot be put back, therefore the process of this fine adjustment is a one-way street on which one is to proceed with utmost caution.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

These images are dark for a reason: If correctly exposed, the reflections off the facets would be so bright the gems and their color could not be seen.

Admittedly, there is an abundance of poorly made gem-set watches out there that have certainly affected the reputation of high-end, beautifully made OEM products. Thankfully, we are yet to see poorly applied aftermarket anglage on luxury watch movements. Likewise, it’s difficult to withdraw from the equation the fact that such lavishly decorated luxury wristwatches are often viewed as something that was purchased not for the merits of their craftsmanship but rather for their uncompromised ability to promote one’s status and do so from a mile away.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

All this and, again, a lack of frequent and in-depth communication by the brands, have created a strong headwind for gem-set watches and it is understandable why some choose to stay away from this category of fine watches in an attempt not to be associated with the blatant flaunting of the nouveau riche . However, underneath it all lies a watch that has taken some highly qualified craftspeople a very long time to make and to make consistently well. Nothing indicates that said headwind will die down anytime soon, but, to close on a positive note, that probably won’t suffice to make these fun-to-wear and admirable exercises in watchmaking go away.

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Rolex has chosen to take the highly manual crafts of gemology and gem-setting and try to integrate them within the Rolex universe of standardized quality across high production volumes. That is an extremely rare, if not singular exercise in modern watchmaking that resulted in a host of challenges and spectacular, albeit mighty expensive timepieces. Price for the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 126679SABR is 76,600 Swiss Francs , or around $82,000 USD . You can learn more at the brand’s website.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 with Gem-Set Bezel 116695 SATS


Price: CHF 62’500 | approx $ 65,000 | approx. € 58.000 | approx. £ 51,000
Size: 40 mm
Reference: 116695 SATS

Yes, try to avert your eyes if you encounter this watch in direct sunlight. Rolex is introducing a gem-set version of the Yacht-Master 40 in Everose gold. It is called the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 with Gem-Set Bezel, with reference 116695 SATS.

A little over the top? Sure, most definitely. But this Rolex Yacht-Master 40 with Gem-Set Bezel is probably not for the Western market. The rainbow-colored bezel has 32 sapphires, 8 tsavorites and 1 diamond at 12 o’clock. Whatever your opinion is, combined with an 18-carat Everose gold case, this piece is impressive.

This is the first time the Yacht-Master 40 is ‘treated’ with such an expressive bezel. Introduced in 1992, the Yacht-Master is a staple of the Oyster Perpetual-collection. We have come across several versions of this sports watch with 40, 37 and 35- millimeter cases. Like the Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Everose Rolesor , launched in 2016.

This is more or less the Yacht-Master 40 that already existed and like all Rolex watches. This Rolex Yacht-Master 40 with Gem-Set Bezel also carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. Within you find the Rolex caliber 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.

Some needed attention for the strap as well. The Oysterflex bracelet is no regular rubber strap. This is Rolex and it must be special. Speaks for itself, no? Oysterflex combines robustness and reliability of a metal bracelet with the flexibility, comfort and aesthetics of an elastomer strap. At its core lies a super elastic metal blade moulded with high-performance black elastomer. This is a material that is particularly resistant to environmental effects and very durable. The Oysterflex bracelet is also fitted with an 18 carat Everose gold Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening.

Rolex Bezels: How to Use the Yacht-Master Bezel

Rolex Yachtmaster 268622

When Rolex developed the Yacht-Master in 1992, the company sought to create a top-shelf version of the Submariner diver’s watch. Rumor has it that Rolex wasn’t quite brave enough to make any drastic changes to the design of the iconic Submariner itself, resulting in the Rolex Yacht-Master being added to the catalog as a separate model.

Both watches may look similar with the use of a dial topped with lume, a robust Oyster case, and a timing bezel, but they serve two very different functions. With a build similar to the Submariner, you can expect some of the Yacht-Master’s key functions to operate in the same way. However, while the Submariner is meant for use far below the surface of the ocean, the Yacht-Master is better suited for the decks of a yacht. Since its release over 20 years ago, the Rolex Yacht-Master has become a highly sought-after timepiece, thanks to a blend of bold aesthetics, quality craftsmanship, premium materials, and plenty of variety.

Getting back to the Yacht-Master’s status as a sports watch as well as a boating watch, the bezel’s primary function is to measure amounts of time while at sea, as well as sync with race start times during a regatta. Read on to find out how to use the Rolex Yacht-Master bezel – whether you’re sailing or not.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Platinum Bezel Rolesium

Rolex Yacht-Master as a Tool Watch

As its name would suggest, the Rolex Yacht-Master was developed as a tool-watch for sailing, offering water-resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet) via a Triplock screw-down crown, a highly legible dial, and a bidirectional rotating timing bezel. It’s worth noting that the Yacht-Master was initially only offered in an all-gold finish, with more affordable two-tone options hitting the market in the subsequent years.

Today, the Yacht-Master is the most varied Rolex sports watch collection, available in several sizes, materials, and colorways. Tapered lugs complement the luxurious style of the bezel, which features a matte finish with glossy raised numerals. This gives the Rolex Yacht-Master a refined appearance that stands apart from the more tool-oriented Submariner.

Depending on the reference, the Rolex Yacht-Master bezel is either crafted from sandblasted precious metals or matte black Cerachrom ceramic. The 60-minute timing bezels of the Yacht-Master are distinguished by raised markings, which include numerals and batons. Unlike the unidirectional bezel of the Submariner, the timing bezel on the Yacht-Master is capable of rotating both ways.

How to Use the Yacht-Master Bezel to Sync with Regatta Start Times

A regatta is a sporting event involving a series of yacht races, and the races have timed starting sequences. Boats have to sail back and forth behind the starting line during the countdown sequence without crossing the line too early (an early start leads to a penalty). Therefore, the Yacht-Master bezel can be used to sync with the official countdown to the race start time. Consequently, it’s especially beneficial that the Rolex Yacht-Master bezel has graduations for the first 10 minutes.

To operate the bezel on the Rolex Yacht-Master, all the user needs to do is simply align the zero position on the bezel (the inverted triangle) with the minute hand, then use the 10-minute hashes to count down to the race start time. For instance, if the countdown is three minutes, then the user has to start when the minute hand reaches the third graduation on the bezel.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Platinum Bezel Blue Dial Rolesium

How to Use the Yacht-Master Bezel to Measure Elapsed Time

Measuring elapsed time with the Yacht-Master bezel is pretty straightforward up to 60 minutes. This would come in handy to calculate the sailing time between two buoys. To start, rotate the bezel in either direction to sync the zero market with the minute hand. Once finished, the minute hand will point to the amount of time that has passed against the 60-minute scale on the bezel.

For example, if it is 10:21 at the start of an event, rotate the bezel until the zero position lines up with the minute hand at the 21st minute. Once the event is over, look at where the minute hand points to on the bezel and it will tell you how many minutes have passed. For instance, if the minute hand points to 35 on the bezel, 35 minutes have elapsed since the timer started.

Although these options are useful while sailing, many of us won’t have this need in our everyday lives, as sailing is a niche sport. Thankfully, the Rolex Yacht-Master’s timing capabilities can be used for any event, be it another type of race, or even to time something as quotidian as keeping track of the time left on a parking meter or boiling an egg on the stove!

Usher Piaget Ed Sheeran Richard Mille

With the BET Awards, Wimbledon, and the Euros all happening over the past week, we were expecting to see some drool-worthy timepieces on the wrists of celebrities. They didn’t disappoint.

Usher gussied up for the Black Entertainment Television Network’s annual ceremony, rocking a Ralph Lauren suit and a vintage Piaget Polo as he received the Lifetime Achievement Award and the award for best R&B and hip-hop artist. Rappers Gunna and 2 Chainz followed suit, sporting eye-catching timepieces by Cartier and Rolex, respectively.

Across the pond, the Beckham family flexed some stylish wrist candy at Wimbledon. Patriarch David hit Centre Court on the first day of the tournament in a custom Boss suit and a smart Tudor Pelagos FXD, while his son, Romeo, turned up on day three wearing a low-key white tee and Rolex GMT-Master II. Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic also found time to show off a Hublot Big Bang as he paid tribute to British player Andy Murray during his emotional farewell.

A little further abroad, English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran flaunted a striking Richard Mille RM 67-02 while watching England play Slovakia during the UEFA European Football Championship in Germany.

Below are the best watch flexes of the week.

Usher: Piaget Polo

Usher scored two big wins at the BET Awards on Sunday. His watch choice was a win, too: The R&B legend threw it back with a blingy Piaget Polo from the 1970s. The vintage beauty, sourced by Analog:Shift, features a 24 mm yellow-gold case, a diamond pavé dial with shiny “dauphine” hands, and a striking “basketweave bracelet.” The chic wrist candy is powered by a thin, hand-wound movement and secured with a barely noticeable signed clasp. Polos like Usher’s aren’t the easiest to come by, but you can pick up the modern successor for around $73,000.

Ed Sheeran: Richard Mille RM 67-02

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Ed Sheeran may have been cheering on his home country of England as they played Slovakia in the Euros this week, but his watch was rooting for Italy. This iteration of the Richard Mille RM 67-02 Automatic Extra Flat is adorned with the colors of the Italian flag, with red, green, and white accents contrasting all the other black parts. The 38.7 mm tonneau-shaped case is crafted from Quartz TPT and Carbon TPT, while the striking skeletonized movement (CRMA7) is made from lightweight titanium. Weighing just 32 grams, the RM 67-02 is the lightest automatic watch in the Swiss watchmaker’s lineup. It also comes in colorways that tribute countries like France and Germany, meaning it is perfectly suited to the Euros. The watch retails for $205,000 but can cost as much as $350,000 on the secondary market.

Gunna: Cartier Baignoire Allongée

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Rapper Gunna rocked a banging Cartier Baignoire Allongée at this year’s BET Awards. Launched in 1957, the original Baignoire features a distinctive oval shape inspired by a bathtub, or baignoire in French. Cartier followed up with the Allongée in the ‘60s, creating a trippy elongated case for the successor. This contemporary iteration showcases a 47 mm white-gold case set with brilliant-cut diamonds, a beaded crown set with another diamond, a silver dial with stretched Roman numerals and sword-shaped hands, and a gray alligator strap. The splashy piece will set you back $44,000 a pop.

2 Chainz: Rolex GMT-Master II

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

2 Chainz wore far more than two chains to this year’s BET Awards. The American rapper, known for songs such as “Riot” and “No Lie,” sported an iced-out Rolex GMT-Master II at Sunday’s ceremony. Introduced at Baselworld in 2019, the rose-gold timepiece (Ref. 126755SARU) is dripping with gems. The lugs are set with 76 brilliant diamonds, while the signature “Pepsi” bezel is adorned with 18 rubies, 18 sapphires, and 12 diamonds at the respective hours. Diamonds can also be found on the dial and Oyster bracelet. The flashy wrist candy can set you back as much as $237,000 on the secondary market .

David Beckham: Tudor Pelagos FXD

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

David Beckham always nails Wimbledon’s famously traditional dress code, pairing sharp tailoring with equally sharp Tudor watches. (He has been an ambassador for the Swiss watchmaker since 2017.) Last year, the soccer legend opted for a look by Ralph Lauren Purple Label and a sleek Black Bay 58 . This year, he wore a custom Boss ensemble and a smart Pelagos FXD . A riff on the original FXD from 2021, this reference features a 42 mm titanium case, a black titanium bezel, and a black dial. In stark contrast, the fabric strap showcases red and green hues that perfectly complement Beckham’s taupe canvas suite. The piece will cost you a relatively modest $4,150. Tudor also recently released a special “ Cycling Edition ” of the FXD if you’re interested.

Romeo Beckham: Rolex GMT-Master II

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Like father, like son, eh? Romeo Beckham followed in his old man’s footsteps, rocking a swish timepiece at Wimbledon this week. Released in 2022, the Rolex GMT-Master II (Ref. 126720VTNR) famously features a crown and crown guard on the left side of the 40 mm Oystersteel case rather than the right. The date aperture and Cyclops lens have also been moved across the dial from three to nine o’clock. To top it off, the watch showcases a two-colour Cerachrom bezel in green and black ceramic, which has earned it the nicknames “Green Lantern” and “Sprite.” It is also sometimes referred to as “Destro,” the Italian word for right, as left-handers typically wear watches on their right hand. Beckham’s piece is fitted with a Jubilee bracelet and retails for $11,250—but good luck finding one at a Rolex boutique.

Novak Djokovic: Hublot Big Bang Integral

rolex yacht master 40 with gem set bezel

Novak Djokovic loves to play with Wimbledon’s strict player dress code of white attire only by wearing little color on his wrist. After rocking a blue Hublot at the tournament in 2022, the Serbian tennis star sported a green Hublot on the courts this week. (Djokovic became a Hublot ambassador in 2021.) This bold iteration of the Big Bang Integral features a green ceramic case, bezel, and integrated bracelet. The striking skeleton dial is also green and contrasted with white accents. Powered by the Swiss watchmaker’s self-winding chronograph flyback movement (HUB1280 Unico), the watch offers an impressive power reserve of 72 hours. Limited to 250, the piece retails for $24,100. Orange Hublot for next Wimbledon then, Djokovic?

Staying on course

The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master 40 in Oystersteel and platinum with an Oyster bracelet.

Bidirectional rotatable bezel, timing the distance.

The Yacht-Master’s bidirectional rotatable 60-minute graduated bezel is made entirely from precious metals or fitted with a Cerachrom insert in high-tech ceramic. The raised polished numerals and graduations stand out clearly against a matt, sand-blasted background.

This functional bezel – which allows the wearer to calculate, for example, the sailing time between two buoys – is also a key component in the model’s distinctive visual identity.

Exceptional legibility

Like all Rolex Professional watches, the Yacht-Master 40 offers exceptional legibility in all circumstances, and especially in the dark, thanks to its Chromalight display.

The broad hands and hour markers in simple shapes – triangles, circles, rectangles – are filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting glow.

A legendary combination

Many Rolex watches are available with the now-legendary combination of yellow, white or Everose gold and steel known as Rolesor, but Rolesium is a creation specific to the Yacht-Master.

While the case and bracelet are in rugged Oystersteel, the bezel of the Rolesium versions is made of platinum, imparting a silvery whiteness and vibrant luminosity for an unmistakable sense of luxury.

The Oyster bracelet

Alchemy of form and function.

The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology, designed to be both robust and comfortable. It is equipped with an Oysterlock folding clasp, which prevents accidental opening and the Easylink comfort extension link, also exclusive to Rolex.

This ingenious system allows the wearer to increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm, providing additional comfort in any circumstance.
