ROLEX OYSTER PROFESSIONAL YACHT-MASTER II MENS LUXURY WATCH 116689
CHARTING ITS COURSE
Nevertheless, Rolex Yacht-Master II design meets all the needs of professional sailors.
Moreover, this regatta chronograph watch features the world’s first programmable countdown with a mechanical memory.
As a matter of fact, it provides precise synchronization with the crucial starting sequence of a yacht race.
The Yacht-Master II comes equipped with calibre 4161 – a self-winding mechanical regatta chronograph movement – entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
The result of over 35,000 hours of development, the Yacht-Master II introduces a new regatta countdown with a unique, patented mechanical memory created by Rolex.
A number of the 360 components in the 4161 movement are so tiny or complex that they can only be made by new, cutting-edge technology.
Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 4161 has Swiss Chronometer certification, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests.
Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.
