Has anyone seen the Titanium Yachtmaster (226627) at an AD?

Has anyone seen of these in the wild or at an AD? Wondering when Rolex is going to get these out.

I was told by the local AD they wouldn't arrive at least before Summer. I'm not sure how reliable his information is though.

And on average there’ll be one piece every two years per AD.

No, and it is my understanding these will be very, very uncommon.

Yes, I had the pleasure of trying one on - it’s super light and very good looking in real life.

I have a video on my instagram and can post some photos tomorrow.

Im a lover of Ti watches.
This one does nothing for me and I so want to love it.
The bezel just is enh....
I hope they bring something else in Ti with a more exciting bezel (heck I would love it with a Sub bezel!)

It's going to be hard to get but I don't think it will be that scarce.

Not that I would ever be able to get one, but the blacked out bezel is very odd choice for me. I understand that it's one of the signatures of YMs, but while I don't mind then on a rose gold case, it doesn't do it for me with the color of Ti and a black dial. There's too much black going on there.

Now, I'm not sure what bezel design would have worked for me, but some color on a ceramic base would have been nice.

Shape and size wise it looks very similar on Cosmo’s wrist in that Instagram, as my 43 SD except for the bezel of course. I like it. It’s a big watch. I like my SD better, but I would have to see that titanium in person and compare.

Not a good looking watch to me personally. I like YMs in general and own a SS/PT one.

What I heard from two separate ADs.

One is independent and they know their allocations already. They’ve been told one Ti piece a year ie. DSC one year and YM the next. They’re not even bothering opening a list on them.

The other was a branch of Goldsmiths. They have an idea of total numbers per year to be divided out by head office. All things being equal (which they may or may not be) it worked out similar; one or possibly two at a push Ti pieces a year.

Presumably Rolex will scale up production in the next few years but right now these are likely some of the lowest production catalogue pieces.

Thanks.
I did hear similar but was hoping it was just to build the hype. If supply really is that scarce then I can probably forget about being allocated one.
That sort of supply restriction means the watch will be much much rarer than something like a Pepsi.

Despite the watch dividing opinion the scarcity itself will make it a collector's piece
