The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, JLC etc...) - Page 2702post #40516 of 483122/3/15 at 2:56ampost #40517 of 483122/3/15 at 3:48amQuote:I think most people don't care much for one handed watches and clocks. I grew up with ( and still have) a few 18th century one handed clocks in the house and they've been viewed as oddities by most visitors and actually annoying to some. I had an aunt who used to curse at them and ask why we couldn't afford a minute hand.
Anyway, if I were to get one I'd probably get one that shows military time.
Oh, and Dino, I wish you an extended 'new watch' buzz. It's such a delightful feeling.post #40518 of 483122/3/15 at 4:14ampost #40519 of 483122/3/15 at 4:30ampost #40520 of 483122/3/15 at 4:49ampost #40521 of 483122/3/15 at 4:52ampost #40522 of 483122/3/15 at 4:55ampost #40523 of 483122/3/15 at 5:08amThere was an early 20 Century futurist-artiste who carried a carrot in his watch pocket. When asked what time is it now he would retreve a carrot and upon glancing at it would reply : "It is too early to dine".post #40524 of 483122/3/15 at 5:30ampost #40525 of 483122/3/15 at 6:01ampost #40526 of 483122/3/15 at 7:34ampost #40527 of 483122/3/15 at 7:35am

yes, big congraz to Dino!! Spend much less time on Style Forum now that I decided no more shoes!
I dropped my BLNR off at the RSC today for a crystal swap, I have recently been following the less cyclops magnification threads on the Rolex Forums closely. The main concern is that on certain watches, the magnification isn't 2.5X as specified, which may lead to harder resell as people may think it's fake.
Anyway, the watchmaker had a look, and told me that the watch would be under specification for it to leave the factory. He even brought out another GMTII, which has slightly bigger magnification to mine. He wont' agree or disagree with my view on the size of the mag, as he doesn't have a way to measure the size exactly; he agreed to swap out the crystal under warranty but asked me what will happen if I am still not happy with the mag size.
I understood what he meant, and said do your best, and I will accept the result of the swap regardless. He added that all parts are checked and certified from Rolex for service.
Here is a photo of my BLNR before service.

Interesting. I'm looking at your photo and looking at my BLNR and scratching my head a bit, but I think my date window takes up a tiny bit more of the space in the cyclops than yours, so I guess maybe you do have less magnification. Pretty tough to measure that though. Any time I hear stuff about fake watches it makes me the slightest bit nervous bc this was/is my first watch and I was purchased second hand (trusted seller on rolexforum). Can't do much at this point, so best to just trust that it's real and enjoy the watch!post #40529 of 483122/3/15 at 7:46amQuote:Originally Posted by Dillardiv

Don't worry. You will find out when you take it for service.post #40530 of 483122/3/15 at 7:53am
