Welcome to Jaztime.com. This is Chris here, introducing to you the Rolex Yacht-Master II two tone rose gold and stainless steel. It's model reference number 116681. Let's look at this bad boy here. Voila! Here it is guys, Rolex Yacht-Master II in stainless steel and rose gold. It has a retail price of $25,150, US dollars. It originally came out a number of years ago, but they did not come up with this model until recently, this one in ever rose gold and stainless steel. Beautiful dial, really easy to read. You see the hour markers do have luminescence on them. This is a chronograph. It's actually a countdown chronograph for regatta racing, if you have a yacht, and you can race it with this watch. There it is. I'll show you what comes in the box. It's a warranty card here, 116681. Your hang tag's over here. Get a good look at those solid links there. This is rose gold here. See that case back. I'm also going to be showing you how this chronograph function works, for those of you who are interested or curious about how it works. This watch right here has a specific movement that allows you to program it. The way to actually program it is, you see this chronograph hand here, our chronograph at this top pusher button and a lower pusher button. It's traditional that chronographs have the start-stop and a reset button typically on the bottom right here. To start, to actually get this watch moving, you need to take the crown out here, unscrew it. After you pull it out, you can actually set the time and date. Or time. This watch actually doesn't have a date option on it. You'll see it going through that dial. Get these hands out of the way so you can see how that works, how you work that chronograph hand. We're going to put the screw back in and give it a couple winds. Normally from a dead start, you can wind this watch about 15-20 times to get a good power reserve here. In order to actually program this watch, you're going to see this little triangle hand right here, this is the countdown timer hand. Originally it starts either, it's going to be somewhere on the 0 or 10 mark. But I can show you how that works, how you can actually program it, so you can actually have countdown times of 5 minutes. This one would be 5 minutes. If you wanted to do it 2 minutes or 1 minute, you can actually program it. The way you do this, I turn the bezle halfway. You see right there, Yacht-Master is sitting right here on the side. In order to program it, you're going to press this bottom right button here. Jam it all the way in until it clicks. Once it clicks you're able to program the watch. What you're going to be doing is taking the crown on the side, and once it's popped out to the first position, you can actually move the regatta countdown hand here. Once you see me turn it you'll see it start to move. In this case it's moving up, 8 minutes, 9 minute countdown, 10 minute countdown. If you wanted to reset to a 0 countdown it's going to flip all the way back just like that. Let's just say if I wanted to set it for a 3 minute countdown, I would set it such, pop this back in. In order to program it and lock it into place, you're going to be turning this bezle back this way. My hands are a little sweaty. There you go. You hear that click, you've actually programmed it and you're ready to go. When you're actually counting down this, if you look really closely you'll see the chronograph hand, which is the red hand, second hand starts to go. If you look really closely, keep track of that triangle there, triangle hand, you'll see it's moving down toward, from the 3 to the 2. If you had a 3 minute countdown, it would actually measure down to the zero, and you could start your yacht race. Interesting, huh? Really interesting piece where you can actually program this mechanical piece to operate and do what you need it to do. Most chronograph watches are counting up. But in this case it's counting down. See, it's moving from the 3 to the 2 there. There you have it. Now if you wanted to reset the chronograph hand, obviously you can just press this start-stop button on the top, and you can reset this back to the 12 o'clock, and this 3 minute marker back to the 3 o'clock. There you have it, guys. It's an awesome watch. It is a 44 mm watch. It doesn't fit on everybody's wrist, like mine, but it definitely does look good.
