Yaay! Matched Ben on these pics, he kills everyone else on all his other watches, including me with the same AP we both have/had.

If purchased from an AD at MSRP the 5711R would be a consideration. Really two different watches for a fair comparison. I like the YM better and add in the cost and the 5711R does not work for me.

5711R but you realize those are impossible to find @ retail and they are going close to 100K outside of ADs?

I'm on 3 years and counting...And I requested the watch in 2016, just when things were about to go "BOOM-BOOM". Although it's due very soon if Patek doesn't screw me or the AD already has it but wants to bill me the extra 4%

3-4 years would be fine though each price rise will sting! Just saw new pricing for this one.

With this rise, it has risen around £9K/$11.5 in the UK since release. I started this thread when it was released in 15 and I even wrote the price was very reasonable back then, ignorance was indeed bliss back then -
