Rolex Yacht-Master II - Ref# 116688 (M-Serial Number)
Just returned from a Rolex $1700 + Factory Service - Included Rolex Service Receipt/Warranty Card Dated March 5, 2021! The included Rolex Service Receipt and Rolex Service Warranty Card shows the service was completed at a cost of over $1700 on March 5, 2021. The original Rolex Factory Service Receipt also states that the service includes a 2 Year Warranty. That's almost as good as buying a brand new Rolex (but at significant savings below retail MSRP of $43,550!)
Lightly and carefully worn a handful of times (if that) since return from Rolex Factory Service. Comes with original oversized XL Rolex boxset, Booklets, Rolex Service Warranty Card and Rolex Service Receipt with 24 month Service Warranty. All pictures are of actual watch and included documents taken date of auction posting.

The Rolex Yachtmaster II - Ref 116618 has been released in 3 different variations with regard to the hour/minute hands. You can sort of date the age/version of the watch by identifying the color and style of hour/minute hands. The first (original) and oldest version 116618 was released with 18k yellow gold stick hands. The 2nd Version features blued-steel luminous stick hands. The most recently released version features 18k yellow gold 'Mercedes' hands (hour hand has large mercedes symbol going thru it). Many of the original Yachtmaster II 116688 models had their original gold hands converted to blued steel hands. Looks like this watch has its original 18k yellow gold straight hands (not mercedes style). In either case, this watch looks amazing and fresh from a factory Rolex service!
