Hey guys, this is Kevin from JazTime.com and today we'll be reviewing the Rolex Yacht-Master II, reference number 116680. We'll be going over their pricing, the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp and we'll talk about the movement towards the end of the video. Alright, so as of October 2017, you can get this watch at the authorized Rolex retailer for $18,750, or you can come to jaztime.com and get it for as low as $15,300. Alright, moving on to the dial now, for the dial, this specific Yacht-Master II as of October, it is the 10 year anniversary of the Yacht-Master II, so they've actually revamped the dial. Originally the Yacht-Master II was released in 2007. Of course it's now 2017. They decided to revamp the dial a little bit. Not too many changes but very nice ones, regardless. For the hands, originally the Yacht-Master II had blue steel sword hands. So both the hour and the minute hand looked as the minute hand as shown here, and they're in a nice dark blue color. But they decided to opt for more of that, similar to their other sports watches, such as a Submariner or even the GNT, but the Mercedes hand, sort of hour hand now, and of course with that white dial, that Mercedes hand will have a nice legibility to it with the the blue chromo light luminescence that it's filled with. So much more easier visibility at night. Along with that the other main change that they've done is just the hour marker at the 12 o'clock position and the six o'clock position. At the 12 we have a triangular hour marker now and at the six o'clock we have a more rectangular hour marker whereas the other hour markers are very simple, just square hour markers that stay the same, that hasn't changed and all those hour markers are fashioned in 18 carat white gold. So why did they change the 12 o'clock and the six o'clock? Well, it's more of use as a sort of a landmark for the eyes, so think about it at night when these hour markers are glowing in the dark, at a quick glance you can easily tell the 12 o'clock from the six o'clock position. You'll be able to immediately judge, or rather quickly gain the information of time just simply at a quick glance because the landmarks are there and it just makes it easier for viewing because of it. For the minute hand I did forget to mention that, it is a skeletonized minute hand and the reason for the skeletonization is that we do have the countdown on the dial itself and with the skeletonization of the hand, actually helps not sort of block those numbers when viewing. Besides that the six o'clock position, we have the second sub-dial, of course tracks a time of 60 seconds. Moving on to the bezel now. The bezel is a bidirectional rotatable ring command bezel with blue Cerachrom, the Cerachrom is Rolex's term of saying that it's a ceramic, so it's a blue ceramic bezel with engraved numerals and the inscription of the Yacht-Master II name at the six o'clock position there. And we also have the engraved numerals as I've said, from zero to 10 and that's used in conjunction with the programmable countdown pushers at the two o'clock and the four o'clock position, as along with on the dial as well, we can see that as well. Now specifically for the programmable countdown mechanics we actually have a video on our YouTube channel that you can check out if you wanna look at the specific mechanics that go behind the programmable countdown and how to use that. So you can check that out on our YouTube channel, we'll go ahead and skip over that for now. We're gonna go ahead and move on to the case now. The case is a 44 millimeter case which is made out of Rolex's 904L steel which is in house made steel that has additional corrosion resistance. From the index finger to my thumb here that's 44 millimeters in diameter, on the side of the case we have a very beautiful, high polish, the pattern is very nice with the high polish on the sides of the bracelet as well. The specific thickness of the case isn't too large, will fit under suit cuffs, dress cuffs very nicely, very easily, however it is large because of the movement itself and having that programmable countdown. Okay, moving on to the crown now. The crown is a screw down Triplock, triple waterproofness system and it unwinds very easily by going counterclockwise and in the standard position where the crown is currently that it's set to after you unwind it, this is where you can wind the watch from a dead stop. 15 to 20 clockwise turns is all you need to get this watch going from a dead stop. Simply tugging at the crown once more will bring you to its final position in which you can adjust the hands, or set the hands bidirectionally, as shown. And in the final position of the crown, in the sub-dial, the seconds hand will stop and it allows for precise time setting such as to an atomic clock online, you can set it down to the exact second, popping the crown back in once more will start that seconds hand once again and always make sure to screw the crown nice and tight against the case as you wanna keep this watch water resistant for 100 meters or 330 feet. Okay, moving on to the bracelet now. The bracelet is sort of a more dress watch bracelet. As you can see there is a very beautiful high polish down the center as more typical Rolex sports watches have the sand finish for all three of the links and we only have it for the outer of the three links with the high polish down the center and that's throughout the bracelet as shown. For the clasp we have that same pattern as well and we do have a more sportier clasp, this is called the safety folding oyster clasp. The safety being this little hinge here that is on top of that folding oyster and there we are. Here's the clasp plate, nicely high polished throughout with the Rolex name embossed on to the clasp plate itself there. For the clasp function, behind the clasp, as you can see there's a little indentation right here, that's actually one of Rolex's features called the easy link which allows for adjustment of the bracelet five millimeters forward or backwards and that adjustment is for more comfortability on your wrist depending on the weather, such as a hot summer day your wrist will swell up and be a little bit too tight on your wrist and you can go ahead and adjust that so it isn't too tight on your wrist and vice versa on cold, you don't want the watch to be shaking around everywhere, you can tighten it up as well, alright. Moving on to the movement now. So, for the movement, it's housed in this very simple oyster case back, so it's a perpetual mechanical self-winding movement, it is a regatta chronograph with a caliber of 4161 in house made by Rolex. It's a precision of minus two, plus two seconds a day, the functions of the movement itself was based off of a Daytona movement. The only real difference is the ability to have that programmable countdown with mechanical memory and on the fly synchronization, besides that, same functions as a center hour, minute and seconds hand. The sub-dial seconds hand in that six o'clock position, stopping the seconds hand for precise time setting. The oscillator is a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring which adds a digital magnetic resistance for the watch and a power reserve of this watch comes at a whopping 72 hours. So you can put this watch down on a Friday evening, pick it back up on a Monday afternoon and it will be keeping time just fine. So let me actually go ahead and show you the Yacht-Master II on my wrist now. Pop that. Folding oyster. Safety lock. Nice and secure, and there's the Yacht-Master. Okay. So I do have a average man sized wrist, I have a seven inch wrist, as you can see it doesn't look too large on the wrist, it looks absolutely gorgeous, that blue ceramic really pops against that white dial. The nice high polish on the bracelet as well.
