    Probably old Rolex news but...

    The existance of this watch has been known for a while now, but I have yet to hear a realistic, believable view of how it escaped the rarified atmosphere of Rolex quality control.

    Rolex has built their reputation on impeccable quality and impossibly high manufacturing standards. Does anyone having any ideas how this slipped out.

    I don't understand what you are asking. Is there something wrong with the Air-King? If so, post a link please.

    How? Human error. Perfection is not attainable, no matter how close you can get to it. I like the symmetry of the double 9. Very cool and quirky.

    Look closely at the Arabics.

    And what's the issue?

    If you're referring the slight edges peeking out or the double 9, I think it's just a bad photo or bad photoshop edit job.

    Here's some real, in the metal photos, from Fratello - https://www.fratellowatches.com/sund...olex-air-king/
