Yes Dorsey, we had a discussion about it a while back. I know the Dorado has the crown, and I was looking for a nicer dial for my watch, so I wondered if any other watches had it. What I came up with was that the 14k Dorado's had it, and the two 10K RGP electrics had it.. see pics below.
So my thought was that the solid gold Timex didn't have date windows, and the gold plated ones did. I still haven't found another dial that has the crown.
I know that David says his is rolled gold, but someone here has that case shape without it being gold plated. In fact I also had one of the black dial watches that was not gold plated. I wonder if the non-plated ones had the exact same dial? Does anyone have that black dial electric without the crown?
