Are we talking raspberry ripple in Rolex circles...or should that be Rolex areola?

Let's not beat around the bush... Omega have a meat and two veg 12 hour marker dial on the Speedmaster...:jawdrop1:

Seiko also have a fine, upstanding logo on some vintage quartz models.

And, for those who've been inhaling a bit too much radium while inspecting the dial

:laugh:

Don't open that can of worms - let's just say the letter from Rolex's then MD to Smiths apologizing for their lying knee **** advertising and acknowledging Smiths dominance is enough for me. What is also enough for me is that Rolex still try to siphon off some glory from this debacle in their modern day marketing and it's probably the major reason I'll never buy one. 

As for being a rip off of the explorer? Well technically yes, yes it is however it's a rip off of the elegant gentlemans watch that you could imagine Bond turning into a knuckle duster that you can no longer buy from the original source, not the fat sack of crap made of unobtanium the Explorer has become. :laugh:

Indeed, their numerous attempts at 'claiming' world firsts is well documented.

Apologies?

They have a department for it, fully staffed & ready to go...

Looking at the OP again, does anyone know if the seller live is Bristols?  Mammilia-mia I need to know because I'm teat-ering on the brink of rushing there with the £63.5k I have knock(er)ing around to snag this udder bargain and clutch it to my chest.

Afterwards, I will make an appointment with an eminent psychiatrist Dr Juggs who will shine headlights in my face and certify me for buying 'the real thing'.  No doubt he will have a framed copy of Thomas Tusser's (1524-1580 BR*) oft repeated quotation on his wall; "A fool and his money are soon parted".

I bet Arthur Askey wore a Smiths.

Ay thang yaw...:biggrin:

:laugh::laugh:

I would award you a "haha" emoticon, but I don't want to encourage anyone else. :)
