Little bit of platinum

The internet would meltdown! It's already here, and generally flies under the radar

YM is really one of the most beautiful Rolexes with its chiseled, rugged look.

This is my favorite but I just have a hard time convincing myself to throw the kind of money on a rubber strap watch!

Beautiful and congratulations. I never see YMs in the wild. I like that about a timepiece! Enjoy it.

Ha, have been having this internal debate for over a year. At least with an oysterflex WG Daytona, you are more likely for it to retain value should PM on OF not be for you or if you tire of it. Much bigger risk w the RG OF. But still, such a gorgeous piece!

Haha, so true!

The case is stunning, the curvatures --- so elegant.

For me, the 'touch of red' with the blue is striking. Wear it in good health.

Is the Azzaro Blue DJ41 next?

What's even crazier about that is I do have my eyes on one!! Love these blue dials... An Azzaro DJ41 w/fluted on Jubilee would be amazing.

The whole bezel thing is so overblown it's comical. Sure, any bezel outside of C is going to be prone to something --- but this breathing on it and it'll be ruined is just myth. A watch like this anyway wouldn't be worn like a tool watch anyways... This bezel is ridiculously beautiful.

Incoming...!! Rolex 116622 Yachtmaster with Blue Dial

Some YM action.

The dial is amazing, can be bright blue, warm blue, ocean blue, and even black depending on light and time of day! Iím in love.

Ha, great minds right? I'm a sucker for the various Rolex blue dials. (not the Smurf, but in it's own way it's kinda okay.)

Keep us posted.

That is a beautiful YM! Donít worry Bezel-Schmezzel

Every watch after 5-7 years will need some sort of polish to be like new again whether itís the case, PCLíS, or yes even the Bezel...

Love Love Love the YM blue!!
