Good to know! I really like the creamy markers as well. It really adds character to a watch. An experience that my friend had at a dinner with a potential employer really caused me to re-think adding a Rolex to the stable anytime soon!
It was kind of a meet-and-greet sort of situation--and my friend was wearing his two-tone Datejust he received for graduation. He is not a watch guy at all, but wears it more out of respect for the gift. Anyways, we were speaking with one of the partners, and the Rolex caught the partners' eye. Anyways, the gentleman made a big deal out my friend "having accomplished so much to be able to afford a Rolex at such a young age," and making remarks of that ilk. Sure, the guy was an ass-hat, but I don't think it benefits anyone to bring attention to themselves like that. I can comfortably say that no one ever said anything about my now-departed JLC-MC, nor has anyone ever mentioned by Omega. I tend to like that.
I love getting attention/compliments on my stuff, but Rolex draws a uniquely intrusive type of attention in the form of assumptions people make about your life story. Usually that (i) you got it as a gift for some type of achievement, e.g. graduation or wedding, or (ii) you wanted to buy a expensive watch but were ignorant of the other options. Frankly I like many Rolexes but I make the same assumptions when I see them on the street.
