Rolex Yacht-Master II (44mm)
When the Rolex Yacht-Master II was launched in 2007, it was truly a different breed. At 44mm, not only was it much larger than the traditional Rolex, it was also technically unique.
The Yacht-Master II is a flyback, regatta timer, specifically created for timing countdown intervals of one to ten minutes. It debuted Rolex’s Ring Command Bezel system, which allows the wearer to set the countdown using the bezel — a feature that would also later be used in the Rolex Sky-Dweller.
The Yacht-Master II is available in 18k yellow gold, 18k Everose gold, and stainless steel, 18k white gold with platinum, and stainless steel.
