Should the screws on that case all face the same way?

Horrible. Horrible and stupid. Watch lume is supposed to be green, for functional as well as aesthetic reasons. 

 

More proof that whomever runs Rolex now needs to be castrated. Vulgar Clown Watches. 

Wow.  Thanks for the laughs!  You, sir, obviously are supremely knowledgable when it comes to the horological artsbiggrin.gif.

That's what I thought but I've seen numerous wristshots where the orientation is all over the place.

 

I dunno, I have box, papers, and receipts so I don't worry about it too much.

Wow, someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed.  Try decaf before your next post. wink.gif

Thanks but I'll settle for lume actually being visible.  My relatively modern Rolex watches, a 11470 (Recently sold), 16570, 16610LV, and 116520 have decent lume, but are no where nearly as visible as the old tritium models were when new.  In addition, I never thought the green lume they used after tritium was all that elegant, and compared to the new blue lume its not all that visible after an hour or so unless its spent a lot of time in sun or under direct light.   I love vintage models and many of their details, but there are some things we just are not going to see any more...like tritium for lume.

Chronographs are great for timing lap dances to ensure accuracy. teacha.gif

Yes, and the blue lume will ensure that the strippersees the time too...

Posted in the poor man's thread as well: I dress casually for work and find it difficult to work this watch into my daily wear with the gold bracelet. I'm looking to switch to leather and was wondering if anyone had a suggestion. I'm curious about a NATO strap but think the watch may be too dressy and gold for that to work. Thanks.

It's not a Patek or Panerai, but it gets me to class on time.

I am considering whoring myself out to older women to cover the expense of the watch I want, any client leads would be greatly appreciated. I will pay you a commission.
