    A sleeping beauty awakening, 116680 Yacht Master II

    *****
    With several other Rolex types in possession as a 1978 GMT 1675 the YM II appealed to me more and more.....I finally purchased one and are very happy with it....among several SS Rolexes it is my daily watch.
    The YM II obviously is a watch that triggers emotions...undoubtedly..

    It is a watch for a.o. Rolex trendsetters.........
    The "thirteen in a dozen" general SS Rolex owners feel uncomfortable by something standing out of the row; they feel more save with the choice of a model everybody has.

    If you can handle the YM II', try this unique watch and you will become a silent enjoyer that immediately understands the promotions of fellow YM II owners.
    If you can not handle them, queue up in the row of the safe decision making people where you will find millions of Sub's, Daytona's etc where everybody speaks the same reassuring Rolex language.
    The YM II is distinguishing from all the common Rolex models people are after in one endless row.
    The Daytona in it's early introduction days did meet similar adverse reactions as the YM II these days.....history repeats itself
    The 116680 YM II is unique in every aspect...........and ahead of it's time..

    BTW.....Is it a future collectable?.........definitively the (for the moment) strong undervalued 116680 Yacht Master II is collectable Rolex..........
    The SS YM II has a unique caliber, it is a highly accomplished self-winding chronograph movement entirely developed in house.....Rolex spend 35,000 hours developing the Caliber 4161, which contains 360 individual components. It also includes their blue parachrom hairspring (constructed from a special alloy containing niobium and zirconium) that offers incredible durability against shocks and magnetic forces.exclusively made for this watch.
    There is no other manufacturer producing a comparable caliber.
    Because of it's existing appearance and the high price it is sold only in minor quantities, which is a solid base for becoming a much sought after model in the future.
    Furthermore the 116680 YM II is an extraordinary and exclusive type of Rolex because of its exclusive style elements within the existing Rolex program.
    For the moment these style elements of the 116680 YM II are commonly unloved and the watch is ignored by the existing type of "common/standard" Rolex owner which feel safe with a focus on Daytona's, BLR'S, Deepsea's etc, mainly because of the existing market trend.
    Once imo the YM II will be considered as an absolute exclusive item between the Rolex models, because in an early stage it had the styling elements that in the next future will be searched after.
    Generally in the future Rolex will show more diversity in color and appearance and more watches will show some kind of model name on the bezel.
    Besides the new Rolex watches will show both distinguished and characteristic model accents; this will be required by the market commonly soon.
    If you buy one, new or 2nd hand, go for the discontinued "Blue Hands" version, which was the 1st version and sold only a couple of years in very limited quantities.

    Beautiful watch, very prominent on the wrist. Still, I don’t really understand the complication. Is it a 10min Timer? And what the bezel for?
