Response to Explorer 1016 dial

And this is why I was asking: See pictures below with a sample of three Explorer dials, the R serial from 1988 that I just bought plus two additional L series from 1989. When you really zoom-in and get a good level of detail on the dial print it is surprising to see the number of font nuances and variations across dials, even between the two watches from the same serial and year. Somehow I was expecting for such a comparison to yield more cohesive results across same model watches.I guess some of it has to do with the fact Rolex was sourcing these dials from different manufacturers at the time? any other thoughts? thanks!
