THE SPIRIT OF THE YACHT MASTER II
PAUL CAYARD
Tactician. Skipper. Rock.
Leads by example. First American skipper to win the Whitbread Round the World Race.
Star World Champion. Likes to break new ground. On water.
THE ROLEX FARR® 40 WORLD
CHAMPIONSHIP
For 96 hours, a stretch of water will become a sea of sameness.
The Rolex Farr® 40 World Championship
requires that boats, sails, and even total
crew weight be equal. What will separate
the winning boat from all others will be the
crew’s ability to work together as a precisely coordinated team, ready to exploit
any and all opportunities the skipper, wind
and sea might provide the difference of a
mere split second – something the ocean
can give and take away quickly – may be all
that’s needed to win.
MAXI YACHT ROLEX CUP
There is an elegance that comes with sailing, which is nearly impossible to see in
difficult, harsh conditions. But along the
Sardinian coastline, the scene is quite different. Here, the World’s most graceful and
powerful yachts cut through the Mediterranean with agility, refinement and ease. Perfect sailing conditions and crew coordination are crucial to the way these imposing
boats glide along. An entire team reacting
as one is maritime choreography at its finest. Organised by the Yacht club Costa
Smeralda, the World famous Maxi Yacht
Rolex Cup is very much a competition. To
the spectator’s eye, the setting and magnificence of the yachts can make it look
otherwise.
ROLEX SYDNEY HOBART YACHT RACE
BEGINS DECEMBER 28TH, 2009
Some of the most treacherous waters in
the Southern Hemisphere lie between Sydney and Hobart, a distance of 628 nautical
miles and nearly a week at sea. Those who
make the voyage are on a course to define
courage. From the individuals to the teams
themselves, the challenge must be faced
with grit and stoicism. Those who have
made the journey have been known to say
it moved their soul. Facing 60-knot winds
and towering seas how could it not?

AN OBSESSION WITH PERFECTION
RING COMMAND BEZEL
It takes genius to make the complex simple. Rolex achieved perfection when it turned its attention to redefining
the pupose and functionnality of the bezel. Typically, a
bezel operates independently from the internal mechanism, however, the Ring Command bezel in the Yacht-Master II regatta chronograph operates in conjunction with it.
Now a mechanical component that is linked to the movement, the bezel literally acts as the key to the programmable countdown, allowing it to be set and synchronised
to the sequence of race start times. Complex in design, but
simple in use, it is functionally beautiful.
ROLEX GOLD: ABSOLUTE PURETY
Rolex’s commitment to excellence begins
at the source. By operating its own exclusive foundry, Rolex has the unrivalled ability to create new and unique alloys, holding each to the very highest of standards.
Rolex’s goal: Absolute purity. Cases, bracelets and components are painstakingly
crafted for exceptional durability, colour
and beauty.
TRIPLOCK WINDING CROWN
To protect the movement from invasive
elements such as water and dust, Rolex
invented and patented the Triplock winding crown. Professional models equipped
with this ingenious triple-seal system, like
the Yacht-Master II, are waterproof to 300
metres (1000 feet). The Triplock consists
of 10 separate elements crafted from 18ct
gold for the crown and special polymers
for the gaskets. Once assembled, it screws
down on to the Oyster case as tightly and
securely as a submarine hatch.
4160 MOVEMENT
A perfect start is key to a successful race. In
order to eliminate as much margin for error
as humanly possible, Rolex equipped the
Yacht-Master II with the 4160 Movement,
the product of three years and 35,000 development hours. The countdown function
of the movement not only permits the programming, but also the resetting of the
countdown for a second time in the event
of an accidentally imprecise first setting.
