Yacht-Master IIOyster, 44 mm, yellow gold
The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II in 18 kt yellow gold with an Oyster bracelet and a bidirectional rotatable bezel with a blue Cerachrom insert.
The only chronograph in the world with a mechanical memory, the Yacht-Master II with its bezel acting as a programmable countdown, is an essential tool for skippers to gauge their best course of action.
Ring Command Bezel
A synchronized countdown
Rolex achieved perfection when it turned its attention to redefining the purpose and functionality of the bezel. Typically, a bezel operates independently from the internal mechanism; however, the Ring Command bezel in the Yacht-Master II regatta chronograph operates in conjunction with it.
As a mechanical component linked to the movement, the bezel literally acts as the key to the programmable countdown, allowing it to be set and synchronised to the sequence of race start times. Complex in design, but simple in use, it is functionally beautiful.
