Hi-

I just purchased a pre-owned 5039-R from a dealer in Germany. The side portion of the case (the part where the stem is, all around the watch with the exception of the portions where the band attaches) are brushed rose gold. The portions where the strap attaches are not brushed, leading me to believe the watch originally came with buffed, not brushed gold, and it has been brushed to remove/hide scratches. It has also occurred to me that I could be totally wrong, and that this is part of the style.

Does anyone know/have any opinions. Searches on the internet seem to show watches with both brushed and buffed gold in this ring. Any assistance/thoughts are appreciated.
