It took me a while to see it, but once I did, I understand how you cannot “unsee” that. And, you could drown if relying on it during a dive!!! ��

Seriously.

Busting out a loup on a tudor is like doing doing a taste test (with spit bucket) on miller and coors light. It's just asinine.

Okay it's easier to see on the last pictures. It still wouldn't "bother" me. If anything it's a fun little quirk.

I'd probably mention it at the next service, who knows, by that time you might have learned to love that little beauty spot ;)

Complete and utter nonsense the only thing the bezel has to align with is wherever the minute hand is on the dial,before going underwater.This is to time the lapse bottom time and that fraction of a mm of the pearl either way in the red triangle would make no difference whatsoever.

From another post today ... pip is shifted to the right.

And another one with the pip shifted too far to the left this time.

What a Rolex Forum contribution from Wood&Leather!

Incredibly disrespectful towards the OP and others!

O tempora, o mores!
