Rolex has released a lot of amazing watches with breakthrough watch-making technology, in the coming BaselWorld 2019, they will certainly bring more art work that could give us a big surprise. Rolex does a good job in dress watch and sports watch fields, the sports watches such as Submariner, GMT-Master, Sky-Dweller, Daytona, Explorer and YachtMaster are made for different purposes, each series has distinctive design and function. Among these sports models, maybe Explorer and YachtMaster are not as popular as other watches, it is only my opinion. As a Rolex watch made for special usage, the yachting race, YachtMaster was sold very well in the past, people love the YachtMaster II with blue bezel more than this simpe Platinum YachtMaster. In recent years, we can see some changes Rolex has made in their YachtMaster, first, the size becomes smaller, which makes the watch can suit wrist of most men. Second, Rolex applied more dial styles in YachtMaster. In a word, these changes make Rolex YachtMaster more acceptable to the general public. 2018 now just passed, but it is really a great year in replica watch industry. There are several big events happened in the past 2018, the biggest event belongs to AR factory, because they brought us the replica Rolex watches made with 904L stainless steel, this is a big development. Now, we must be back to this YachtMaster replica watch, it is 37mm in diameter, a very comfortable and neutral size for men and women.
The case is made of 904L stainless steel, which is brushed, besides its smaller 37mm diameter, the case is only 11.5mm thick, which has the exact same thickness as genuine. The bezel is bi-directional rotating, the bezel insert has engravings in polished contrasting with its refined sandblasting background. The sandblasted bezel insert also forms a high contrast with the polished lugs. These tooth on the bezel have a good touch feeling, when you rotating the bezel, the clicks are soft and you will not feel too much resistance.
37mm case frames a grey dial, not black. The most eye-catching element on the grey dial belongs to the central blue second hand. This blue highlights the whole watch, it is a better fit for YachtMaster than the black or red second hand on other YachtMaster. The blue second hand and blue “YACHT-MASTER” letters exactly express the blue ocean theme of YachtMaster. The grey dial has silver hour markers in three-dimensional, they are filled with white Swiss lume material, so are hour and minute hands. The dial will offer a strong and long-lasting blue lume light in dark place.
At last, it is about the movement mechanism inside. The replica is equipped with an Asia ETA 2824 automatic movement. The movement could be properly installed in such a 37mm case, and because of the Asia ETA 2824, the thickness of the whole watch could be reduced to be 11.5mm. It looks like Asia ETA 2824 is exactly made for this replica Rolex 37mm YachtMaster, I do not think it will be a wise move if AR factory installs a clone 3135 movement in it.
