Mechanical Memory Countdown Brief Comment On Rolex Yacht-master Ii Watch

As the leading company in the world watch industry, Rolex’s unshakable market position is, of course, also determined by its strong comprehensive strength. Rolex watches are an extremely powerful technical guarantee for the owner in terms of watch accuracy and multifunctional implementation. Today’s Watch House brings you a brief review of a Yacht-Master II watch. The official watch model is 116681.

The Yacht-Master II watch has an increased diameter from 40 mm to 44 mm compared to the Yacht-Master I watch, and the watch is equipped with Rolex’s latest self-produced movement, cal. 4160 automatic movement. With a mechanical memory countdown function, it is more suitable for timing of sailing regattas. |


The Yacht-Master II is specially developed for professional navigators. It is the world’s first wristwatch equipped with a patented mechanical memory setting countdown function, which allows sailing participants to start the timing completely with the official timing. The latest Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II and the courage to challenge the turbulent sea echo each other, fully reflecting the surging of long-distance sailing events.


The watch is made of 18K rose gold and 904L stainless steel, with a diameter of 44 mm and a white dial. On the side of the watch, in addition to the crown with the crown LOGO, there are 2 countdown buttons for counting down.


The bracelet of the watch is also made of 18K rose gold and 904L stainless steel, and the buckle is designed as a folding buckle. The buckle is also engraved with the classic crown logo.


Rolex’s Yacht-Master II, specially developed for the regatta, is equipped with a RingCommand outer ring, and it is the first to combine the outer ring with a mechanical device. It also directly connects the movement, making the outer ring a core component for adjusting the countdown function, allowing the wrist to be worn. The participants of the table can be reset according to the ranking of the event.


Like all competitive events, regattas are a contest of precision. The Yacht-Master II has the world’s only mechanical memory setting countdown function, allowing sailors to make a countdown from 1 to 10 minutes according to the preparation steps before sailing.


This flexibility constitutes a major advantage of the Yacht-Master II and is also a heavyweight challenge. Due to the mechanical memory function, it can return to the previously set time limit when resetting. After the countdown starts, it can be precisely adjusted at any time according to the official time.


The watch uses a 4161 mechanical chronograph self-winding movement entirely developed by Rolex. This movement is the result of 35,000 hours of tireless research. The innovative chronograph with Rolex’s patent has a countdown function. The movement is made up of more than 360 parts, and some of the fine and complex parts are made of innovative cutting-edge technology developed by Rolex. Like all Rolex movements, the 4161 calibre has also received the Swiss Official Accreditation for Timepieces, which is specifically awarded to precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Precision Timepiece Test (COSC) test. The construction of this movement is the same as all oyster movements, with unparalleled reliability. |


Summary: The watch also has a triple buckle-wound crown, which is a triple waterproof system designed for diving watches, ensuring that the watch is 100 meters water resistant. At present, the price of this watch in the Rolex Store in Beijing Guanya Watch City is 207,700 yuan. Friends who are interested can go to it for more details. (Photo / Wen Watch House Chen Zhongyun)
