Rolex Yachtmaster II
Rolex Yachtmaster II
The Yachtmaster II is a watch created by Rolex specifically for yacht racing and first revealed in 2007. It's stand out feature is a programmable mechanical 10-minute countdown timer; the world's first and one which took Rolex almost 4 years to create using 360 parts. It's also one of the only mechanical watches in the world to use a bezel that interacts directly with the movement. The Yachtmaster II is a professional instrument with unmistakable styling, highly complex mechanism and imposing 44mm diameter case.
This sporty, yet elegant watch is built for the modern mariner, with a perfect combination of utility and luxury. From budding yacht enthusiasts to experienced sailors, the Rolex Yacht-Master II is a regatta chronograph perfect for any discipline, meaning you can enjoy the best features while adventuring out on the waters.
Regarded as an extrovert because of the design and the concept, this Rolex is completely different from the other designs in the range. Practically screaming for attention, the Rolex Yacht-Master II is a technically impressive watch that stands out for the rest.
People tend to forget that the Yacht-Master II is a completely new model rather than an update to the original. This version is designed perfectly to time the starting sequence of a sailing regatta and comes with waterproofing capabilities that mean you can enjoy the open waters even more so. This unique complication is often admired by many and the detractors agree that it is simply remarkable in terms of innovation and inventiveness.
This watch is a perfect gift for any sailor you know and could even be a treat for yourself if you enjoy being out sailing on the seas. The extravagant colour schemes and physical size make it the most recognisable Rolex to date, which will not be missed by anyone.
