So If Every Second Execution Carrera 2447S . . .
In Response To: What have I done !!! :) ()

So if every second execution Carrera 2447S has this same paint on the dial and registers, it seems simpler just to call them "Second Execution 2447S" Carreras. Or maybe I am still missing something??

Nicknames can be fun and useful, but they can also be confusing when they aren't describing a distinctive / different watch or feature. With all due respect, of course!!

Yes, I resisted the "Dark Lord" name for the longest time, but it is easier to use in a chat than "Monaco Reference 74033 N".



: Cheers, Jeff !

: I made some research for MK2 Carrera for a longer time now, and
: have read the word 'Albino' only for the MK2 silver dials, so
: yes, 2447S - 2. Exe !

: Hard to explain, but will try: the dials are silver, yes, but the
: silver is not as bright as the dials from the silver Exe. 1 -
: there is a huge different, and in some lights
: the 2. Exe dials looks nearly white. Then the white Subdials match
: totally with the rest of the dial and all looks white ... this
: is the only reason i can think about
: why somebody called these dials 'Albino' ! :)

: In fact, these dials are white/silver and the Subdials are pure
: white of course, so no 'real' Albino !!

: Now I think, 'Albino' is not a real good Nickname for them, i won't
: take it again - promised !! But hey, i don't have the Copyright
: !!!!!! :)

: All the best to you and happy Easter!
: Werner

: Here it looks nearly white - but without sun, the difference
: between subdials and rest of the dial is pretty obviously !
