Cheapest 116622.....

http://www.watchfinder.co.uk/Rolex/Y...699/item/81322

Just came across this added on their website today

Rolex RRP is 8,500

Brand new with stickers 2017 for 7,250

Seems to cheap to be true?,

Is there no love for this model atall?

Also how are they able to obtain a watch for such a low price to be able to make a profit on this?

Even before the 10% price rise the rrp was higher than that?...

Never been a good seller and they always seem to be in AD's windows!

Wonder if it's a UK sourced model?

It's not been worn but has to be classed as 'less than 1 year old' as Watchfinder are technically the first owner. Looks like a great price. I bought my hulk from Watchfinder a few years ago and they were fine, no problems at all.

Bizarrely they seem to have an unworn 40mm rose gold YM that is 450 cheaper than another one that actually has been worn! Go figure. Their pricing on the SS subs and BLNR's also smacks of taking advantage of the short supply in the UK at the moment.

This watch has never been worn. All original seals remain on the watch case.

The case has a 61D0xxxx serial and paperwork is dated 07 January 2017,

Pre-owned yes but not used

For what it's worth I know people who have purchased from watchfinder in Canada. (Not sure if they are related) and have been very pleased. They seem to have a reputation as being a very good seller with a solid reputation on the Canadian watch collectors forum. In fact, the Yachtmaster I recently purchased was purchased from them about a year ago by its previous owner.

Watchfinder are good. Have bought from them and no issues. As per others though, they are keen to price up the sports models but I guess that's the uk market right now....

I like WF, they are dealmakers and work on quick turnover so if you are serious they will move on price to get the deal done, and so this was too good to pass.

Mine should be here next week.

WF had 3 blue YMs for sale earlier this week and now all 3 have gone so they are still popular at the right price.
