i'm sure this has been asked and answered before, but, anyway, is the reason rolex doesn't use sapphire casebacks because a solid casebacks gives more of a "solid" appearance? if so, that makes sense, i guess, for the sport/tool watches, but less less for DJs and other dress watches, imho.

otherwise, is it just that rolex doesn't believe in following each and every fad?

some transparent casebacks are pretty nice looking. but, with brands like tissot doing them now, i don't think there's any exclusivity in having them.
