The Yachtmaster 35mm reference 168622 was launched in 1999 at the Basel World Fair and was designed first as a luxury sports watch, but easily crosses over to a dress watch. The 35mm size was designed to appeal to both men and women as it fits nicely between the larger 40mm+ designs and the smaller 30mm and under bands.
The Yachtmaster 35mm reference 168622 has an exceptional balance which combines a lighter feel with a stunning designer style. The timepiece utilizes the Rolex patented Rolesium – a combination of 904L stainless steel and platinum.
The 168622 has a stunning look often found on the wrists of some of the top A-list celebrities. The 950 platinum dial is adorned with luminescent hour markers. The hands are “Mercedes” style and contain luminescent paint to provide excellent visibility in day or night. The red second hand has a luminescent dot halfway to the tip and adds a dash of sporty color to this otherwise reserved timepiece. This serves to remind the wearer that this is not just an exquisite piece of jewelry, but a sports watch of the highest caliber.
The time-lapse bezel has a 60-minute timer that allows you to synch it with race start times. The 168622 comes with a sturdy Oyster bracelet with Oysterlock clasp. The 168622 is powered by an automatic caliber 2235 and secured by the exquisite sapphire crystal and a waterproof screw-down crown.
Rubber B has designed 5 sporty bands for the Yachtmaster 35mm reference 168622. These bands are precisely calibrated to fit the 17mm lug case, utilizing “Blocked Integration” engineering and solid inserts for a flawless, flush mount to the Yachtmaster 35mm case. A stainless steel 316L buckle is included.
The Rubber B bands are made in Switzerland from pure vulcanized rubber. No coatings, blends, or bonding are used in the manufacturing, making these bands perfect for swimming and sunbathing. For more information visit our page here.
