it means whales vagina.

Press Release: Rolex releases new McMansion-Dweller model

April 24, Basel, Switzerland

Rolex SA, former producer of semi-tasteful watches, has just announced a model which is expected to do well with in the economically important demographic of overweight suburbanites.

The new McMansion-Dweller is expected to help satisfy the market's demand for a watch that's suited to the challenges faced by today's oversized consumer. Not only does it incorporate an advanced 905L steel (over 50% more resistant to buffalo-wing and BBQ sauces), but it also features an imposing 45 mm diameter for easy legibility even when vision is diminished by shortness of breath brought on by cramming in those last few handfuls of nachos. The increased surface area allows for extra bling, which is useful in attracting the attention of chain-restaurant and sports-bar staff at the local strip mall, and confirming one's status as a true baller when the luxury SUV is out of view.

The announcement is not entirely surprising, given their history of releasing ever-shinier and -larger versions, but the new McMansion dweller breaks new ground in the race to capture the fleeting attention of the modern energy-drink-addled imagination. Chet McClusky, marketing manager of Rolex's expanding-customer division said: "This new watch is both dope and sweet, yet super classy. It's just as awesome for wing night at Hooters as it is for idling in traffic... HEY LOOK, IS THAT A SQUIRREL!?"

Rumours of a younger-consumer-oriented version, tentatively dubbed the "Frat-Master" are as yet unconfirmed.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Overall, I really like its appearance a lot, although I wonder if the contrast of the blue 24 hour hand is enough against the black dial.  Definitely something I look forward to seeing in person.

Will always be the best looking daytonas i think. the new ones theyre releasing with the ceramic/gold are nice but not my style...and the MSRP puts them in the same price range as MUCH nicer watches.

the YM2 is fucking awful. cluttered, chunky, and tacky. foo.gif

The new Daytona is kind of a waste...with the right dial, bezel, and in a more affordable case metal it could have been a cool watch.  I like Platinum,  but this looks like its geared more for the likes of Paris Hilton than Hurley Haywood.    

 

As for the YM2, its one of the ugliest and least useful watches Rolex has ever released.   I even find the Yachtmaster name pretentious....the only thing that would have been worse is if they had named it the OperaMaster.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

I agree 100000%. although the classic YM and the new blue dialed YM is damn pretty.

I completely agree with the pretentious name of the Yachtmaster. Could you imagine explaining your watch to someone?

Guy: Oh wow, I like your watch, what is it?

Owner: It is a Rolex.

Guy: Oh what model? Is it real?

Owner: Yes, it is a Yachtmaster II.

Guy: Oh... OK. And what are all those numbers for?

Owner: Well, it is to time a yacht race.

Guy: ... Do you own a yacht?

At least the other version of the yachtmaster has no real "yachty" purpose.
