Rolex was thoughtful as ever: while the regatta timer’s setting can’t be messed up thanks to its locking by the bezel, the pushers are not locked by a stupid screw-down system. So while the Rolex Yacht Master Replica Watch is aptly water-resistant with its 100m rating without screw-down pushers, the chronograph can be easily modulated on mark of the officials.
First, the minute hand was skeletonized in a way so that its second half is hollow, therefore allowing for an easy and accurate reading of the regatta minute timer’s red triangle, should the two overlap. Although the Rolex Replica Watches UK hour hand is fixed to the column pinion above the red triangle hand, the latter is still large enough to stand out from underneath – as the circle wouldn’t overlap all of the triangle. Not as ideal as the two being the other way around with the regatta hand falling between the hour and minute hands, but I doubt this would cause any real issue.
On the wrist, the Yacht-Master II Rolex Replica shows many faces. First of all, the material its case and bracelet are crafted from make a big difference.This all-steel model isn’t the least flashy version, because that’d be the Oystersteel-Everose gold Rolesor.
With a properly sized bracelet – not as seen directly above – the two-tone, steel, and Everose gold versions make for a great everyday wearer, pretty much the same way an Audi R8 is a great everyday driver. The YMII is large at 44mm wide, but has a strangely good weight to it, especially in this configuration – the Swiss Rolex Watches all-gold version is as heavy on the wrist as it is on the eyes.
It’s a great piece of machinery with a styling to its case, bezel, and dial that can only truly be appreciated in the metal. It’s distinctly Rolex Yacht Master Replica down to its last detail, but it’s also unlike any other Rolex ever. In the eerily classy steel-Everose combination, with its neatly labeled, blue ceramic bezel and crisp white dial with further Everose gold accents, it’s a visually pleasing watch.
