The Yacht-Master is unique in the Rolex sport watch lineup. It, alone, has a bezel entirely made of either 18k yellow gold, like the above ladies watch, or platinum. Most polishers will not attempt to restore one to “like new” condition, nor should they. We constantly receive Yachts that have been over polished and, in essence, destroyed. Which is unfortunate, because replacing the insert costs thousands of dollars.
This watch, fortunately, had only a lightly distressed bezel.
The textured, bead-blasted finish of the bezel insert background, with raised, high-polished numbers and outer bezel ring. The crown, case, and the 18k gold center links of the bracelet are also high-polished. The rest of the bracelet is then brushed to flawless perfection.
