Rolex has forged a privileged relationship with yachting out of a natural affinity with this dynamic nautical sport and its timehonoured values.

The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master symbolises the ties between Rolex and the world of sailing that stretch back to the 1950s.

The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II is a unique regatta chronograph dedicated to both yachting enthusiasts and experienced sailors.

Created in 2007, the Yacht-Master II features an exclusive function developed by Rolex, a programmable countdown with a mechanical memory that can be synchronised on the fly – a function that responds ideally to the need for precise timing during the crucial starting sequence of a regatta.

Although technically complex, it is essentially very simple to use.

The Yacht-Master II has a recommended retail price of A$26,300.
