The famous regatta chronograph, born in 2007, has been created for the first time in 904L steel. The case is built with a CERACHROM bezel insert crafted in blue ceramic.
The Oyster case, 44 mm in diameter, is 100-meter water-resistant. It is finely proportioned and both robust and elegant. The middle case is sculptured from a solid block of 904L steel that is remarkably corrosion-resistant.
Rolex watchmakers hermetically screwed down the fluted case-back using a special tool exclusive to the brand. The winding crown is provided with the patented TRIPLOCK triple waterproofness system. The crown is protected by a crown guard representing an integral part of the middle case. The face of the watch is shielded by a scratchproof sapphire crystal. The waterproof case ensures supreme protection for the model’s movement.
The heart of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II watch is a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement - Calibre 4161. Its column wheel has been independently developed and manufactured by the brand. The mechanism represents an officially COSC-certified chronometer, a guarantee of superior precision and reliability. The oscillator incorporates a blue PARACHROM hairspring patented and manufactured by the brand in an exclusive alloy. The PARACHROM hairspring is insensitive to magnetic fields, resistant to temperature changes and shocks.
The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II watch is firmly anchored on a solid-link Oyster bracelet crafted in 904L steel. It is equipped with an Oysterlock safety clasp to exclude accidental opening. It also boasts the brand’s patented EASYLINK rapid extension system – it can be used to easily lengthen the bracelet by about 5 mm.
