Rolex Yachtmaster Review

When it comes to watches, Rolex has many popular products to release a new watch is to take a risk, as you would know, they tend to limit the production of their watches, so their value of them always stays high. To manufacture something new is to produce less of another line. That being said, here I think the risk has paid off. The main feature I see with the Yacht-Master 42 is that it is a very good-looking watch. Also given is 18ct gold; it is an excellent investment for those who are aware of how well a Rolex tend to hold its value. To me, it seems more fitting as a black-tie watch would look amazing on the cuff of a black suit.
