Every once in a while, we hear of errors made in watch production. Sometimes I wonder, are they intentional?
Do you know of any watches with errors made in production and released to consumers? Do you think they are intentional?
Here are a few:
AP ROO Team Alinghi. The Logo was incorrectly printed. This turned out to be quite fortituous to the owners.
