Hands-on Review of the Yacht-Master Everose>>>>

Besides the review, I also explain thoroughly the issue with the fitting of the Oysterflex.

That is an amazing write up with a great detailed research on the strap sizes and all, a true treasure to those planning to purchase this beautiful watch (that I've considered myself too) second hand. Really great job. I've never heard of your page before but now I will read more of your articles!

Nice Rolex and interesting review.

Interesting to read that this 37 YM with triplock is only rated to 100 metres.

Icon9 Bezel trouble

Interesting review! Thanks for sharing.

I was struck by the following observation:
Quote:
One thing we did notice while reviewing this watch, is that the bezel rotates so freely —in both directions— that is almost impossible to not accidentally move it when keeping track of an elapsed time or simply when wanting to keep the bezel lined up at 12 o 'clock.
To my way of thinking, that is a major functional defect.

I wonder whether it is typical of current production YMs, or limited to your example? In either case, dubious QC.

Exactly what I was looking for!

How has bracelet held up over the years?
