Hi Philip, yes, all of your points are noted and indeed reflect my painfully less-than-pedestrian understanding of the intricacies of these unique beauties. Given the effort Rolex put into building this watch, with the features you note, I still wonder why they’d ‘kluge’ together that ‘1’ in the ‘12.’ But I know I’m dwelling on the wrong element. From an aesthetic viewpoint, I just don’t understand why Rolex would go to all the effort to make the watch unique and then slap on that weird numeral...?
(And oh my gosh I’m not insinuating that it’s fake!... just unusual).
