There is perhaps no greater odd, colorful or niche tool watch than the regatta timer and without question the Rolex Yacht-Master II is the peerless leader of that fearless group. Lots of brands - Audemars Piguet, Heuer, Bremont, Louis Vuitton, Omega, Panerai, Girard-Perregaux, Bulgari, and Ulysses Nardin to name a handful - have presented this complication but Rolex bests all challengers in straightforward, legible aesthetics, ease of use and outright cache. The Yacht-Master II line came to being in 2007 but only precious metals or two-tone so when the ref. 116680 was released at the 2013 Baselworld Fair with its bright blue Rolex patented Cerachrom ceramic bezel, 44mm solid steel case and Oyster bracelet, Triplock crown and advanced Rolex in-house caliber 4161 the avant-garde enthusiasts rejoiced. This latest version of the 116680 from 2017 features the ever-present white lacquer dial and bright blue sub dial, but the hour hand has been changed to Mercedes style and now the hour marker at 12 is an inverted triangle, and the square at 6 has been elongated to a rectangle. Of course the dial is still almost entirely spoken for by the semi-circular countdown ring, which gives little question as to the purpose of this watch - to help skippers determine when to cross the starting line in a regatta. Typically from the first gun (or horn) to the start of the race it's a five minute countdown but ten minutes isn't uncommon, hence the 10-minute scale. Operating the chronograph couldn't be easier via a combination of the Ring Command bezel and the winding crown. Simply turn the bezel one click to the left, unscrew and pull out the crown, set the arrow-tipped, red regatta timer hand to the desired time, return the bezel one click to the right, screw in the crown and...regatta. Incidentally, if Ring Command sounds familiar that's because it's the same patented technology used on the Rolex Sky-Dweller, which is another fabulous, niche watch that pulls no aesthetic punches. The 116680 is a bold watch that in a roomful of Rolex enthusiasts will be a standout piece and a conversation starter. There are a lot of Rolexes to buy at this price but perhaps none more interesting.
