Titanium Sea-Dweller 40mm

...would have been the real deal. YM is more of bling than a tool watch.
I hope they'll do a SD Titanium sometime down the road. 40mm might be a must buy for me.

The only difference between the Ti YM and a would be Ti SD would be the bezel. The Ti YM has less than zero bling on it.

I can see why you’d say that OP.

Prior to this release the YM was the dressier sport watch. From that perspective, a Ti Submariner or SD would make sense to me as well, but I still dig this new release.

I guess it should come as no surprise since a prototype was spotted back in 2020 on Ben Ainslie’s wrist cheers:

Yes indeed, and that's why it shouldn't read "YACHT-MASTER" on the dial.

So you're complaining that the blingy YM doesn't have any bling that you don't like?

Agreed and preferably in navy blue. I'm bored with black divers in general, bar one o two exceptions.

I think Ti should have been applied to the Explorer II. YM doesn't really make much sense to me.

What exactly do you need this 'hydrogen' release valve for then? Lol

I believe you're misinterpreting the word "yacht." Think raceboat, not Drake on vacation.

The Yacht-Master is actually being used by Sir Ben Ainslie for racing.

Good points. Yacht-Master for serious work, competition or play. Range from tool watch to luxury watch for all surface water activities.

Serious submarine owners don’t need that range of options. Some get a little jealous of the fun options they see through their periscopes LOL.

this is spot on. people say grade 5 vs grade 2 matters in a watch. it really doesnt. dont bother me with the harder and tougher. dont bother me with the self healing BS. a tool watch is meant to be scratched. Ti no matter the grade still scratches.

if they had balls they would have made a YM 40 in Ti. They wont because it would literally outsell a sub.

a SD40 in Ti makes a lot more sense than a YM.

If they made the YM yellow gold in 40 I would buy it.

HEV stands for helium escape valve, the gas divers would breath in living chamber at same pressure the diver were working in water.

In one swoop you have determined the nature of the watch. Amazing. Thank you for the public service announcement that it is “bling”.

What is the point. If you don’t like it don’t buy it. Buy something you have not christened as “bling”.

Not any more it's not! Now it's the most toolish of any tool watch.

People will say "Nice Tudor!"

No more likely than hearing ‘nice black bay’ while wearing your sub. But you keep on hating anyway
