Rolex Launches New Yacht-Master II in Stainless Steel

A world recognized brand name, and a magnificent new timepiece, can only mean one thing, Rolex launches new Yacht-Master II in stainless steel. The very first version of the popular regatta-countdown chronograph timepiece that has ever been crafted in this metal. Previously done in a Rolesium case, the new piece features a blue Cerachrom bezel insert.

The signature of this timepiece from the first introduction in 2007 is the regatta countdown function, made exclusively for the brand. This allows programming from 1 to 10 minutes and features a mechanical memory that allows it to be reset to the previous countdown duration. Once the feature is launched, the countdown has the ability to be synchronized and therefore allows for matching the official regatta countdown. This means precision, quality, and brand recognition.

The Rolex new Yacht-Master II in stainless steel features the brand developed system that links the bezel to the movement which is what allows the programming utilizing the rotatable ring command bezel. The timepiece has an exquisite oyster case crafted in 44mm diameter and is water resistant to 100 meters. The brand automatic Caliber 4161, column-wheel chronograph movement is certified as a chronometer by the Swiss testing agency COSC.

The timepiece is equipped with a number of brand exclusive developments, including a blue hairspring that is the oscillator of the watch. The hairspring is made of Parachrom, a patented alloy that the brand believes makes the piece more resistant to magnetic fields, more stable in varying temperatures, and more precise in overall timekeeping. The middle case of the watch is created from a solid block of corrosion-resistant 904L steel.

The caseback is fluted and hermetically screwed down with a special tool that is also exclusive to the brand. The timepiece has a screw-down winding crown that is fitted with the patented Triplock triple-waterproofing system and protected by a crown guard that is incorporated into the middle of the case. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is in place on the Rolex Yacht-Master II in stainless steel, atop a bidirectional rotating bezel that has a striking touch of nautical blue thanks to the Cerachrom insert, which is also crafted from a hard corrosion-resistant ceramic, complete with engraved numerals and inscription coated in platinum.

This brilliant timepiece will grace the wrist with a solid-link steel Oyster bracelet, and the Oysterlock safety clasp, making sure the watch is secure and has no accidental opening. The bracelet also features the brand patented Easylink comfort-extension system that can easily increase the length by close to five millimeters. This timepiece is a fabulous addition to any collection and certainly for those who appreciate quality, precision and meticulous craftmanship.
