Here's another one of the Rolex Baselworld 2013 novelties. The Yacht Master II in stainless steel has been a piece that many have been wishing to have for years and now, it's finally here. Thank you Rolex.
This particular reference 116680 —up until now only available in yellow gold, white gold or in a combination of stainless steel and everose gold— is fitted with a programmable regatta countdown and a ring command bezel that can be programmed from one to ten minutes. It incorporates a mechanical memory that can be adjusted to match the official regatta countdown. Once launched, it can also be synchronized on the fly and adjusted accordingly. This timepiece comes with a matte white lacquered dial, blue lacquered small seconds register, hands/markers in blued 18K gold and a red seconds hand. The beating heart inside this reference is calibre 4161 with a 72-hour power reserve. For more info click here.
