is perhaps the odd man out because it was never developed for strictly professional use. The Yacht-Master is more a child of the times, as in the 1990s the mechanical watch industry was fully invested in moving upmarket. With sport watches being ever popular, Rolex was intent on producing a high-end, yet durable sport watch that people could use while sailing for sport or pleasure. Today, all Yacht-Master watches have either a platinum or gold bezel rather than a steel one. The Yacht-Master II was released in 2007 and was not only perhaps the largest replica watches
produced, but also signaled an intent to delve into more complicated movements by Rolex. The Yacht-Master II contains a programmable countdown timer chronograph which is partially adjusted by turning the bezel.
I asked Rolex what year the term "http://www.modserap.com/tag-heuer-replica-australia-for-sale.html
" began to be used in their marketing and sales materials, but they did not offer a specific response except to indicate the 1953 birth year of the pieces that began the collection. My instinct is that Rolex began to make a semantic distinction in the 1990s, or perhaps 1980s. Today Oyster Professional watches are more or less defined as their sport watches. While both men and women wear most models, only the Yacht-Master has specific versions for ladies with smaller-sized cases.
Even though Oyster Professional watches are sporty and durable by nature, I was curious as to what else, if anything separated them from Rolex's other Oyster collection timepieces today. Specifically, I was curious about whether there were distinct production processes or tests that only Oyster Professional watches were subject to.
According to Rolex there is no specific list of features, production techniques, or tests that apply to all of the Oyster Professional watches, but overall the cases they use and the way they test the final watches are more rigorous than other watches they produce. Furthermore, the production of Oyster Professional timepieces can be more complicated than that of a Oyster Datejust or Day/Date. The Milgauss, for example, has a case that is surrounded by a magnetic shield, and the Deep Sea has extra features such as the Ringlock system, which is involved in its massive level of water resistance.
In the design phase Rolex Oyster Professional sport watches are given beefier cases and features such as crown guards to protect the crown. Even though not all professionals use mechanical timepieces today, Rolex is still invested in producing the highest-quality professional-use timepiece possible. Further, I would say that Oyster Professional watches are designed for greater longevity, but I don't think that is true. From what I have experienced pretty much all Rolex timepieces are designed to last as long as possible given their intended use.
