& The Message It Sends To Other Timepiece Fans

BY ARIEL ADAMS, http://www.ablogtowatch.com

At least once a year Rolex introduces a product which is a high-end, albeit extremely understated luxury watch product. I’ve edited this article a bit from how it was originally published because I used the term “F-You watch” without properly explaining the term to all members of the aBlogtoWatch audience. This term is used often by certain watch collectors and it isn’t an insult to anyone that made or wears the watch (not at all). It is a playful way of explaining the psychology at play when someone chooses a high-end product that isn’t noticeable as a high-end product to all but a select few who can identify it for what it is. For 2019, that type of product from Rolex is the 18k white gold and 42mm-wide new ref. 226659 Yacht-Master 42, that I also like to call the “Yacht-Master Noir.”

I don't ask for much in this life, but I'll tell ya what - find me a way to own that watch - that watch - and I can finally call it a collection for once and for all.

For my taste, that one is just OMFG.
