How Much Can I Sell My Rolex Yacht-Master? 

The Yacht-Master and the Yacht-Master II epitomize Rolex’s commitment to luxury and excellence. The Yacht-Master was initially intended to be an improved version of the Submariner, but eventually, Rolex released it as a new line. It was launched in 1992 as a sports and luxury watch for boating enthusiasts. In 2007, Rolex launched the Yacht-Master II as a regatta chronograph.

Rolex’s unmatched quality, craftsmanship, and global reputation highlight the intrinsic value of your pre-owned Yacht-Master. Selling your timepiece to the right luxury watch buyer will give you high returns for your investment.

How much you can sell your Yacht-Master depends on what you have. 

Cases. 29mm, 35mm, 37mm, 40mm, 42mm, and 44mm.

Bezels. Bidirectional rotatable bezel

Movements. Caliber 2236 (37mm models), the Caliber 3235 (40mm and 42 mm models), Caliber 4161 (44mm).

Materials. Oystersteel (stainless steel exclusive to Rolex), Rolesium (a combination of Oystersteel and platinum), Rolesor (Oystersteel and Everose gold), or solid gold (18k yellow gold, 18k white gold, or 18k Everose gold).

Dials.  Large, luminous hands with chromolight display

Dial Colors. Rhodium, black, white, blue, or other colors.

Bracelets. Oyster or oysterflex bracelets.

The condition of your Yacht-Master plays a crucial role in determining its worth. You can fetch a higher price if your watch does not have any dents, scratches, or damage.

Having the original box, documents, warranty cards, and service records of your watch can validate its authenticity. More importantly, having the original components can greatly increase its resale value.

You can sell your timepiece for the most money if you own a discontinued model such as those made from yellow gold or Yellow Rolesor two-tone. The 29mm and 35mm models have also been discontinued. The discontinued Yacht-Master 16622 (Rolesium), the 35mm, and the ladies' 29mm models have increasing value. 

The long wait list for a brand-new Rolex Yacht-Master (about one year) also increases market demand for pre-owned Yacht-Masters. 

When is the best time to sell Yacht-Master? There is always a high demand for Yacht-Master timepieces in the secondary market. So, you can sell your watch anytime you are ready to let go of it and for whatever reason.
