The Rolex Yachtmaster reference 226659 was released at Baselworld in 2019 and represents the continuation of a model with an ascending demand on the market, with its unique strap and bezel and use of precious metal rather than the classic stainless steel.

The three body gold case with screwed-down case back and Triplock winding—crown has a revolving mat black “Cerachrom” black ceramic bezel with 60-minute scale and raised numbers is very well preserved. Within the case of this handsome Rolex beats an automatic caliber 3235 movement with a 70-hour power reserve.

This white-gold watch also comes with all its original accessories, including box, guarantee and outer packaging.
