The watch is from 1997 and is one of my modern watch...as this is a birth year watch for JJ, I shall keep this watch for home when he turns 21...
I have goggled and found that many of the Pepsi dial red has turned pink and I am still contemplating whether to send to Rolex center for a change in bezel?
