The Case

Jun 05, 2018,12:21 PM
 

After seeing two different pictures of this watch posted over the weekend the first thing I noticed was the case. It's not the same case as the 27-02 it looks as if its the case from the RM35-01. All of the RM027's have 8 screws in the bezel while this one on the other hand has 10 not to mention the thickness of the case. I know people are saying it's a limited edition of 10 but to me it almost seems like a prototype that was thrown into an RM35-01 case kind of like the RM59-01 prototype was tested using the RM038 case. As for changing aesthetic pieces, I recently sent back an RM055 for service after the rubber piece of the crown split (they need to make a ceramic replacement option for the crown on manual wind RM's or figure out how to replace them in the boutiques) and I asked them if I could replace the white rubber with a red rubber crown to match the seconds hand but when I received the estimate back they told me that they are no longer doing that which surprised me because I have seen multiple RM055's and RM35-01's with non original colors.

Appears to be missing a covering. The black NTPT is exposed in asia edition, whereas it is covered in this unique red piece below. In the Asia edition, the exposed inner bezel makes the watch appear chunkier and the movement somewhat squashed, whereas in ...

My eye did not pick that up initially - but once you mentioned it, it became blatantly clear; this is an 035-01 case with the 027-02 movement squeezed into it. Seeing 3 'horns' on the case sides vs 2 paired with the tourbillon movement is rather peculiar....

It was pretty frustrating to be honest. If you look at pictures on social media or even listings online you can see that the rubber wears down on the crown fairly easily over time on manual wind RM's. I specifically told them that I only wanted the rubber...
