The Yacht-Master, introduced by Rolex in 1992 in a gold case, was the first all-new watch from the brand since the Daytona in 1960s. The watch was designed for adventurers and sportsmen—the topside equivalent to the diver's Submariner, to which it bears a strong similarity, though with more of a luxury than a tool watch feel. In 1999 it became one of the most highly sought and desirable timepieces in the Rolex stable, famously seen on celebrity wrists, when it introduced this “Rolesium” model, the brand's term for a watch using both steel and platinum.
