A Look at the Rolex Yacht-Master in the Wake of America's Cup Racing in New York

This past weekend, New York City played host to the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series Racing. With the dramatic backdrop of the Empire State Building, the racing took place on the Hudson River for the first time in nearly 100 years, and Emirates Team New Zealand came out with the win.

This exciting weekend gives us the perfect opportunity to bring you a closeup look at another sailing winner: the Rolex Yacht-Master. While there are several versions of the famed Yacht-Master, this Yacht-Master II is designed to meet professional sailing needs. It is a regatta chronograph that features a programmable countdown of the final minutes before the race — thanks to a mechanical memory. This 44mm Oyster Yacht-Master II features a red contoured countdown arrow and a dedicated 10-minute countdown graduation on the daily and bezel. It is finished with an Oyster bracelet.

While we love the look of this Yacht-Master II, we have others in the store that can also fulfill your sailing needs, and if sailing isn't your thing, stop in anyway and we will be happy to show you our extensive Rolex collection.
