The Rolex Yacht-Master II, introduced in 2007, was designed for professional sailors and yacht racing enthusiasts. This innovative regatta chronograph, built upon Rolex’s maritime heritage, features a unique programmable countdown with mechanical memory. It exemplifies Rolex’s commitment to precision and the brand's deep connection to the world of sailing.

A groundbreaking feature of this timepiece is its Ring Command bezel. Traditionally, a bezel would operate independently from the watch’s internal mechanism. However, Rolex reimagined this dynamic with the Yacht-Master II. Here, the bezel doesn’t just operate in conjunction with the movement; it is intrinsically linked, acting as a key to the programmable countdown feature. This allows the countdown to be synchronized to the sequence of race start times. 

The Rolex 116680 also features a redesigned white dial and new hand styles consistent with Rolex’s Professional models. This sharpens its appearance and enhances its legibility. Highlighting its thoughtful design, a triangular hour marker is placed at 12 o’clock, while a rectangular one sits at the 6 o’clock position, enabling more intuitive time reading. 

A luminescent disc on the hour hand sets it apart from the minute hand, ensuring clarity even in limited light. Remarkably, the watch can memorize the countdown setting, allowing seamless resets.

Constructed with Oystersteel, the Yacht-Master II benefits from Rolex’s dedication to using materials of the highest caliber. This specially formulated steel is part of the 904L stainless steel family, known for its use in high-tech, aerospace, and chemical industries where corrosion resistance is paramount. Polished to a high shine, this resilient material retains its allure even under extreme conditions.

Complementing the watch case is the Oyster bracelet. This iconic bracelet encapsulates the perfect blend of form and function with a highly durable yet supremely comfortable three-link design. Rolex has equipped it with the Oysterlock folding clasp, ensuring it stays put. The ingenious Easylink comfort extension link allows for a 5 mm length increase, ensuring an optimal fit.

The Yacht-Master II features a bidirectional bezel with a blue Cerachrom insert, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and 100 meters of water resistance. Inside, it’s powered by the Calibre 4161 self-winding movement, boasting a 72-hour power reserve.
