if rolex pretends to care about performance so much, the least they can do is to add AR coating to their sapphire crystals to aid readability. even way cheaper brands can afford to do that. rolex is just short-changing their customers.

it's not as if rolex hasn't done AR coating before.

case in point: around 2010, rolex started adding AR coating to their date cyclops. not convinced? just go to any 2nd hand shop and compare.

so if they can do it on their date cyclops, wtf don't they do it for the entire crystal?

the bling factor "theory" is merely cooked up by some vainpot, "emperor's new clothes" rolex owner who cares more about bling (complete idiots imo) and consoling themselves for being ripped off by rolex, than basic performance.

being a rolex owner needn't make one blind to its faults.
What's the reason they don't do to entire crystals? Cost?

a few points:

what makes you so certain it's not a deliberate design choice to exclude AR coating?

what makes you so certain that the bling factor "theory" is just a theory, and not something that was taken into consideration by their R&D team?

do you work for rolex, or have access to information that is not readily available for everyone else?

There was ever a mass order side offering at 1k UsD, missed the offer as I was flying off. Didn't had enuff time to buy etc

So knowing how low it can go, can't bear to buy local first hand or even pre own at going rates of 2k

Where did u see 1.7k grey?!

Which mass order site? Usd$1k is great deal, googled quickly not finding such mass order in the past, how long ago was it? Prices does go up due to inflation. Now it range usd$1.2-1.4k for FC703 or FC705.
Usd$1.2k I found on Brooklyn based grey, company mention in link below

Cost is definitely not an issue.
