Rolex as a watch making company is committed to produce timepieces of great quality and reliability. Considered luxurious and unique, its watches have been trendsetters in terms of perfection in functioning and design. A perfect example of such a masterpiece is the Yacht Master II watch. It is designed for professional sailors and marine engineers, to provide them with a machine that keeps them updated even when they are out on a journey around the world.
The 44 mm watch has an officially certified Swiss chronometer (COSC) and self winding movement. The Yacht Master II watch is the worldâ€™s first to be built with a patented programmable countdown and mechanical memory. It is waterproof to 100m (330 feet) that helps maintain accuracy and precision upon an encounter with great depths in the sea. It also has an oyster bracelet, a luxury reserved only to a few watches.
When a watch is specifically designed for professionals with a high need of precision underwater, it is essential that its movement be protected from unwanted elements such as dust and pressure. For the same purpose, a triplock winding crown was created by Rolex in 1956. It provided great protection to the watch and its movement. The system has ten different parts that upon assemblage screw down onto the oyster case as tightly as it can for certainty in its function. The Yacht Master II watch also features a rotatable ring command bezel. It operates in conjunction with the internal mechanism.
A product by skilled engineers and craftsmen, the watch has a 4160 movement, which lies at the core of it. The movement is technically excellent inside or outside the water and allows a perfect synchronization between the different elements.
