This was one of the toughest watches ever to photograph. I had to combine 2 photos together to get a professional looking shot which shows the dial details properly. But it came out ok.

That was my very first thought on seeing that picture in your first topic post: wonderful work on capturing that dial structure. Well done!

Thanks a lot man. I've been practicing watch photography for a LONG time and it's always rewarding when people notice things like this.

Was Rolesium YM the first "modern" Rolex that used the red lettering? Or was the Turn-O-Graph first? Hmm...

Interesting article on the Yacht-Master prototype. It was originally developed because Daytona was such a slow seller.
