    Is there such a thing as a flawed Rolex dial?

    Is there such a thing as a flawed Rolex dial?

    We hear on this forum many complaints about Seiko dial flaws (and at least one about an Omega dial) but can any of you talk about Rolex dial flaws—if any?

    Also, it would be good if you posted some photos of these flawed Rolex dials.

    No doubt, if such dials exist, they would have been returned to Rolex for a refund etc. So maybe asking for photos is a bit too much.

    In any case.... your thoughts?

    Yes, there is.

    Here is my 114270.




    It has been there since I got it out of the store. Was convinced not to be bothered by it.

    I asked about how much it would cost to be replaced and was told that it would be around 400€ for the dial + 125€ for the actual replacement.

    Now I blame myself for not having been pushy during the guarantee period requesting a new dial.

    NO that's a real error. Definitely not photoshop. Watchfinder.co.uk's channel shows the watch with the issue.

    The most important thing is what will happen to the value of the watch with that "error" dial. It will go BANZAI. Same for every other Rolex dial with a fault - an opportunity to cash in!!

    No offence, but "cashing in" seems to be all you talk about - a lot lately. Are you even interested in watches? Sorry but this constant interjection of value and market into (what is supposed to be) and enthusiast forum really puts me off. Just speaking for myself, of course, but I'm sure there are others who feel similarly.

    Not so much the dials, but unlike Grand Seiko, as depicted above, Rolex is famous for its poorly finished hands and markers and unevenly applied lume.

    A long time ago some dials did develop issues like discoloration and cracking over time, the so-called tropical and spiderwebbed dials.

    However those types of flaws are quite rare, and therefore highly valued amongst collectors.

    I've noticed this same underlying theme as well.
