Has anyone here serviced a 116655? Pics?

Iím curious. Iíve heard the bezel system on the new YM is different then the ones we are used to on the earlier yachtmasters, subs and GMtís. Does anyone have pics of how it all goes together?

Rolex are constantly changing the designs, I have a friend who is a main service agent, he has said that they are doing it to stop indi's from servicing them.

The company he works for has to buy tooling that cost 1000's then they charge it again.

Years ago rolex had a staff shortage and pushed for independent watch smiths to carry out servicing. But now they have all the staff they need, they are reluctant to even supply parts to the big service centres. And it's only by way of supplying both serial numbers and model number to rolex that the ad can get parts.

So the case and bezel might need some special special tool to remove.
