Yep...that white faced Daytona has got to be the coolest one I've laid eyes on. The key here is the detail to the crown and pushers!

Well, I ran a poll after buying it about a year and a half ago and about 1/2 of the responders held your opinion (hated it) while the other half liked or loved it. To each his own, as they say.

Damn, Rolex have quality glue so I have to warm it up a bit.

Ouups, not so good.



What do you think, did I have to change crystal? Or can it
be polished?




Followed your instructions in reverse, worked like a charm. Thanks Jocke!
