    No, actually they are not. They are not supposed to be all black.

    It might be the light in the pictures that fools your eye.

    Your right I found that out latter, whats weird is the way Rolex paints them it just doesn't look right and I think I have seen another style of hands on a genuine black 216570

    Good news: This CHS is a long-awaited development.
    Bad news: Oh no, the hour markers in this white dial are wrong. Do I hear "it's just the lighting"?

    [MENTION=82129]Thrasher[/MENTION], it seems to be the norm with these factories.
    But to be fair, they said these are "just samples," so I hope the hour markers are corrected in the actual release. Sigh...

    Another step back
    They f*cked the bezel numbers
    I was ready to sell my noob polar, but I won't
    This is pretty bad IMO
    This is Explorer II, not Explorer I

    Numbers should be more close to each other

    I'll call you blind if you want Thrash, but I don't see a problem either. A lot f these people don't realize that Rolex themselves change the specs/fonts etc on their watches every couple of years . . .

    You're right, the watch is un-wearable.

    Dog you are not just my hero but pretty damn funny all the time, Next time I'm in Europe we need to compare medications!
    By the way I'm thinking we will be in France in 2018 so I have an appointment to meet with JJ in Paris to go to some shops, Have you ever met rolex addict aka JJ, You could come to Paris and we could all nerd out over wrist watches!

    I see it now! not horrible by my standards!

    But then I just noticed somebody put a 702 on my TC V6 LV, The suspects are BK, VAC and RNRPROF , I will post a separate thread on this catastrophe as soon as I put the wash in the dryer!
