    3 6 9 the goose drank wine ....

    Do you think it is fake, I get that you can become somewhat blinded by the obvious but really, would this have passed not just QC but also a large number of other people at Rolex and gone unnoticed all the way to the shop floor?

    I saw that video a few days ago after checking out an Air King at a dealer. At the time I didn't consider the authenticity of the watch since it was a video from Watchfinder - I just wondered if/how much more valuable it would be 25 years from now.

    Probably worthless. Some disgruntled employee picked up three pieces of number 6 and placed them upside down at the 3 and 9 and one the right side up at the 6 o'clock.

    But I hope you bought that Air King. It is going to be a collectable in 30 years' time.

    I didn't go into the dealer specifically to look for the Air King - just checking out what they had while my kids were running around the mall this past Saturday. They had (2) of them and a green crystal Milgauss (which I posted on the sightings thread), and a few OP39's (tried on the blue w/green pips, and the rhodium). Tried on a white 41mm DJ w/the jubilee and fluted bezel - very blingy.

    I wasn't originally a fan of the Air King even though I like quirky, but had never seen in person. In person it was more attractive than I thought and wore well. It's been rolling around in my mind since then and I'm contemplating it.

    here's how this happened:

    junior watchmaker, picking up a 9 and setting it in the 3 position: "this just goes here..."
    senior watchmaker: "Nein!"

    i'm here all week.
