A complex and stunningly beautiful watch design, the M116681-78211_ WHT Rolex Yacht Master II is surprisingly simple to use in spite of the plethora of features it supports. It has been designed specifically to accommodate avid yacht racers and their needs. As a result of this, it has a Ring Command bezel in 18 ct gold with a blue Cerachrom insert in ceramic, which is unique to the yacht master models. The functions of this are integrated with the clock mechanism of the watch that allows for a pre-programmable countdown mechanical memory that can be set from anywhere between ten and one minutes. Markings on this bezel are in gold, which adds beauty to its functionality. A white dial contrasts well with the blue of the bezel and lends elegance to the time piece. The traditional oyster perpetual 3 link flat bracelet finds a place within the design of the watch and like the dial case, it too is made of the characteristic Everose Rolesor material that gives it a two ton look. Security of the watch is maintained at the highest possible levels through the Oysterlock safety clasp which is further augmented with an additional Easylink 5 mm comfort extension link. Use of the scratch resistant sapphire glass protects the dial and also adds durability.
This regatta chronograph is self-winding and has the hour and minute hands located at the center. The seconds are marked through a sub-dial located at the 6 O’clock position. A Parachrom hairspring, which is a unique feature of Rolex watches makes the watch ten times more resilient to shocks and immune to magnetic interferences and temperature variances. Accuracy also gets improved because of this. Patented Triplock winding crown gives the Yacht Master the same water and pressure resistance that is given to diver’s watches. Hence it can be easily worn down to depths of 300 metres without going through any damage.
The Rolex Yacht Master II was first introduceed in 2007. Individual versions in Yellow Gold and White Gold were launched into the market in 2010. Within a few years, the watch was made available in steel and everose gold. At Baselworld 2013, the Yacht Master II fitted with a glamorous Cerachrom bezel insert in blue ceramic was made available for the first time.
The Rolex Yacht Master II surpasses other watches in terms of readability and pleasing aesthetics, the former being crucial for boat racing. All models have a 44 mm stainless steel case diameter, a 90 degree rotatable Command bezel with blue Cerachrom insert. The Ring Command bezel is characteristic to the profile of these sports watches. The model also has the distinguishing screw down, Triplock crown. The matte white dial with blue lacquer small seconds counter enhances legibility to a great extent. All models come attached with an Oysterlock safety clasp and 5 mm comfort extension link. The bracelet come in various choices including stainless steel, white gold and platinum as well as dual combinations.
The Rolex 4161 movement, which consists of a chronograph feature has been modelled into the time-piece mainly for yacht racing. In addition to this, this luxury watch contains an extremely well thought out complication of a programmable timer that counts down to ten minutes. This complex mechanism, useful for Regattas where the starting sequence for all the races lasts up to 10 minutes, is why this collection lives up to its name so efficiently. Rolex took approximately 35,000 hours to develop the countdown mechanism which consists of 360 parts. This feature can be locked and unlocked according to convenience just by turning the bezel through 90 degrees. Yacht Master II was the first collection to manage this incredible feat in a watch.
