Great pictures OP.

I think Bas is the most qualified here as to what Rolex can or canít do when refinishing a watch.

Yes they removed material during polish but not enough that you would detect it with the naked eye. Unless you broke out a micrometer, I doubt you could even measure how much they may have removed. They will not polish to perfection if you have dents. I know this from personal experience with a TT sub I had serviced at RSC. They polished and minimized a dent on a lighter but it was still visible and they did not discernibly alter the shape of the lug.

Let me clear about one thing. I am VERY happy with it. I think it looks phenomenal and I would have it re-polished again any day over not getting a polish because it brought back that new lustery look. In some ways it almost looks better than new. Especially because the lugs are a lot more ďnormalizedĒ compared to the new squared off lugs.

So I just wanted to be clear that Iím not being critical or expressing unhappiness with the final result. Quite the contrary actually. I cannot wait to wear my Sub today and for many many years to come. I think that the superior refinishing service offered by Rolex is one of the many reasons that I love the brand . . .

I can't get over people taking pictures of their watches WHILE driving...

Watch looks fine though.

Where I live stoplights can keep tied up for 3 to 5 minutes. Thatís a lot of down time for taking pictures!!!
