: I have had the opportunity to study two very similar and yet very
: different watches and found some obvious and not so obvious
: details which, when revealed, will shed some more light on the
: 2446 compression case. In past discussions, I have been party to
: the spread on some incorrect facts about this execution but I
: must stress, this was not intentional. I believe watch forums
: are awash with this sort of thing. A little knowledge can be
: dangerous and in our enthusiasm, mine included, we often spread
: untruths and misinformation. To the more experienced among us
: this may appear almost comical and to the less experienced, it
: is most certainly fraught with danger as we have a tendency to
: believe the written word when we know no better.
: In order to set the record straight, take a look at the picture
: below and see how many differences you can find between the two
: watches. If you are really brave you can list those differences
: than cannot be seem. Focus your attention on the case and dial.
: Some time tomorrow I will reveal in picture form some of the
: differences that I have found.
