The Rolex Yacht-Master has two very different models in its line. The Yacht-Master was introduced in 1992, and the Yacht-Master II was introduced in 2007. You would think this sequential naming would indicate the II was merely an improvement in design, but the Yacht-Master II was actually created for the specific purpose of being in competitive racing regattas. The original Yacht-Master, on the other hand, was designed as a luxury sports watch built for nautical purposes.
The most significant features of the Yacht-Master II are the programmable countdown timer and mechanical memory. It can also be synchronised on the fly, if necessary. In regattas, racers wait for the start signal to begin the race. If they start early, there are penalties that could cost them the race. If they start late, it’s likely they’ll fall behind. With the Yacht-Master II, skippers can program the timer to start as accurately as possible.
The original Yacht-Master isn’t built for racing regattas, but it’s a fantastic boating watch all the same. The Yacht-Master was built for both function and form, with water resistance so it remains reliable on sea voyages and excursions.
