Really? So virtually all of the 100+ logo dials listed and shown HERE were applied aftermarket by ADs, not by Rolex? The post linked above says “At one point [Rolex] advertised corporate-branded Rolexes as a good service award for loyal employees, so they weren't just reluctantly fulfilling special requests--they were actively seeking out clients for it.” It seems improbable somehow that Rolex would advertise a service performed only by the ADs. Is there some distinction between “government” dials and corporate ones?

OTOH, it wouldn’t be the strangest decision Rolex has made ... Probably not the strangest one today!
