Hey, guys. This is Kevin from JazTime.com and today we'll be reviewing the Rolex Yacht-Master 35. Reference number 168623. We'll be going over the pricing, the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp, and we'll talk about the movement towards the end of the video. Okay, so as of December 2017, unfortunately this watch actually has been discontinued from authorized Rolex retailers. However here at JazTime.com for a market value of around $7,500 we can actually still find you some used pieces of this model in very good condition. Okay, moving onto the dial now. So for this specific dial configuration we have the white dial with black arrow markers. The black arrow markers are prominent in the other dial styles as well. They are fashioned in 18 karat yellow gold to prevent any tarnishing. Now you may think, black arrow markers. How will I be able to view this watch at night? Well actually the hands are luminous filled so the Mercedes hand, the minute hand, and the seconds hand are luminous filled for easier readability at night. However each arrow marker has these little triangular markers that point inward from each one and those actually glow in the dark as well and provide easier visibility at night. Let's see if I close up my hand here, you can kind of see the slight glow. It has not been fully charged by light yet but you can still see a small glimmer of it. Besides that, the other dial style that this Yacht-Master comes in besides white is blue, a dark mother of pearl for a little big of a higher cost, and also a platinum dial style as well. Additionally, at the three o'clock position we have the date window, actually, I apologize about that, I'm going to go ahead and move that out of the way here. So we have the date window at the three o'clock position and that has a Cyclops lens on top of that sapphire crystal for magnification, easier viewing of that date. So let's go ahead and move on to the bezel now. The bezel itself is a bi-directional rotatable bezel. It has a 60 minute graduated scale around the bezel. The numerals and the indices are high polished. As you can see, high polishing contrasting with the satin finished gold in the background to make it pop more, easier visibility in the day as well. And of course for the nice shine as well. The purpose of having a bi-directional bezel or just having a 60 minute graduated scale bezel allows for tracking elapsed time. So let's just say for the purposes of yacht racing, let's see here, we can say that if the yacht started to move at this specific time which is a little bit past the 20, maybe 21, 22 here, you can actually track how long it takes for one of these yachts to finish a lap by just tracking how far the minute has moved away from the triangular arrow marker on the bezel. Or you can even us it for office meetings. Just to see how long an office meeting usually takes. Let's just say if it moves from here in its current position at the 23 to the 30, you can see the difference in time very easily. You can also use it for other every day activities such as tracking how fast you can run a mile, how long you take to jog or walk the block. Alright so besides that, moving on to the case now. The Yacht-Master is more of a dress watch than it is a sports watch and that's definitely shown. Obviously being by the high polish on the numerals and indices on the bezel. But the high polish on the case lugs as well. You can see this nice high polish on the top and bottom of the lugs, the side of the case as well. A nice high polish that patterns very nicely with the bracelet. The size of the watch, it is a 35 millimeter case size. So from my index finger to my thumb here that's 35 millimeters in diameter. And the case itself is made out of the 904L steel. The 35 millimeter, it is a mid-sized watch. Mainly for the ladies. If you're looking for a larger sized watch, the newest version is the 116622 which comes in a 40 millimeter case size. Moving on to the crown now. The crown is located here at the 3 o'clock position. This is just a simple screwed on Triplock triple waterproofness system. Just simply unscrews counter-clockwise as shown. In this first position that the crown is at, you can actually wind the watch from 15 to 20 clockwise winds from a dead stop will actually get the watch going once more. Simply tugging on the crown will put you in the next position in which you can adjust the date instantaneously as shown. Very easily, very instantly. Then the final position, you pull the crown out once more will stop the seconds hand and allow for bi-directional turning of the setting of the hands. So you can set the time to such things as a type of clock online down to the exact seconds for precise time setting. Of course always make sure to screw the crown nice and tight against the case as you want to keep the water resistance of this watch for 100 meters to 330 feet. Moving on to the bracelet now. The bracelet, as I've mentioned, this is more of a dress watch than it is a sports watch. And we can definitely see that with the beautifully high polished 18 karat yellow gold down the center of the three piece links contrasted by the satin finished 904L steel outer links. And as you can see, it patterns nicely throughout the whole bracelet. Even through the clasp as well, we still have that same patterning. The clasp itself, it is an older style clasp which is still a safety oyster lock. The lock is here, as indicated by the crown logo here. It simply opens up like a folding oyster revealing this beautifully high polished clasp blade with the Rolex name embossed on there. One thing to mention about the clasp is the clasp is adjustable for two millimeter increments. You can see by the holes in the side of the clasp, you can actually adjust the bracelet forwards or backwards or rather, inward or outward. And that's more for comfortability, a quality of life sort of thing where if your wrist swells up on a hot summer day, you can adjust to have the watch a little bit more loose or vice versa on colder days when your wrist starts to tighten up a little more and you don't want the watch to be jiggling around on your wrist. You can tighten it up a bit as well. Moving on to the movement now. The movement is one of Rolex's most used movements. This movement is actually used in 178240 which is a smaller version of a Rolex Datejust. It's a 31 millimeter Datejust and the movement that's used in here is a perpetual mechanical self winding movement that is a caliber 2235 movement manufactured by Rolex. And it has a precision of minus two, plus two seconds seconds a day so within Swiss chronometers specifications. And it's the functions of the hour set, the center hour, minutes, and seconds hand with instantaneous changing of dates with rapid setting and stopping of the seconds hand for precise time setting. And the power of this watch. You're looking at 48 hours power reserve meaning you could put this watch on Friday evening, pick it back up on a Sunday afternoon and it will be keeping time just fine. So I'm actually going to go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist now. One thing to keep in mind, I do have an average man's sized wrist. And that is a seven inch wrist. As you can see, nice snug fit and a very beautiful dial. Nice contrasting of the gold and the black and the white. It just all works very well in unison.
