The watch of the open seas: the Yacht-Master collection embodies the unbreakable bond that has lived between Rolex and the world of sailing since the 1950s. The Yacht-Master II is the most complex reference among all the collection’s seaworthy timepieces, enforcing its dedication to competitive sailing with an extraordinary watchmaking complication: a programmable countdown chronograph.
A programmable complication is a true rarity in the world of mechanical watches due to its complexity and its consequently challenging development and manufacturing.
Whereas most complications follow predetermined guidelines to determine their indications, the Yacht-Master II regatta chronograph follows the instructions of the wearer — and nothing else.
It is a true on-demand functionality that, at all times, has to be at the ready to correctly react to new instructions.
Specifically, the Yacht-Master II relies on the crown, two pushers, and the Ring Command rotating bezel that acts as a function selector to allow for the programming, starting and restarting its 10-minute chronograph at any moment to any specification required.
Creating a movement with such capabilities stands as yet another testament to the singular watchmaking prowess that is tirelessly elevated by Rolex. The Yacht-Master II is equipped with Manufacture Rolex Calibre 4161, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
Its abundance of Rolex technology, the result of over 35,000 hours of development, includes a patented solution and comprises around 360 components. Some of these parts are crafted by the UV-LiGA micromanufacturing technology that is entirely mastered in-house by Rolex.
This technology allows the production of components whose tiny proportions and, more importantly, whose complex geometry rule out manufacturing by traditional machining methods.
Presented in a 44mm wide case and matched to the iconic three-link Oyster bracelet,
the Yacht-Master II is a rarified horological powerhouse that performs on land as well as it does on the open seas.
