Hi guys

Really digging my new Sea Dweller. A thing of pure beauty!

One thing i was curious on though was the subject of the laser etched Rolex symbol at the Six 'o clock position. I had a look with the maginfier glass and I just can't seem to see it. Should I be worried at all? My Sea Dweller is the latest "M" Series.

Cheers

Hey Jonathan,

I wouldn't worry.. It's extremely hard to find, especially the first time.

best way is to focus the magnifier on the dial. Then slowly back it away & you'll see the laser. It may take several times. Also, a bright light is very helpful.... It's also sometimes helpful to look at an angle.

Good luck!!

JPS,

It is very hard to see. You need a magnifying glass, a strong light, and extremely steady hands. The way to see it is to subtlety change the tilt of the watch under the light to try and pick it up. I have a Z series GMT-II and I can only find it on good days. I have no idea how some of these guys got the patience to actually get photos of it!

I can not overemphasize on what has been said:

At an angle
With light.
a black face dial is MUCH easier than a white face dial.

One way I see mine:

With watch at the 12:00 position facing the sun; but, keeping the watch horiontal, look at it from the 1830 or 1900 position. Angle the watch slightly down toward the 1500 position. It should then appear just to the right of the 1800 marker.

I used a bright flashlight and shined it at an angle from the 12:00 position toward the 6:00 position. You should look right between the "S" and "M" of the SWISS MADE marking. It really is easy to see this way.

Thanks guys for all your help and understanding on this subject. After a bit of patience and stronger light and going in at different angles, I managed to catch a glace of the top section of the crown. Everyone is right when they say it is a minute detail to spot. I'm pleased that I have found it now. Thanks again guys.
