...about that dial, I'm sorry to say.
I have never seen a meters-first 551x dial layout quite like that one before.
If you can take a head on macro shot and size it about 1200x1200 I think all will be clear one way or the other.
I sincerely hope I have to apologize to you for getting it wrong.
But a meters first dial should look like this:

And from the pix you show, I'm afraid it doesn't.
Best,

Must be the distortion. When I hold the watch up to the iPad....it looks the same as the above pic.

I purchased it from Dominique Wieland. Formerly of Rolex, and has a Rolex service business here in West MI since he emigrated to the US.

Thank you for you concern though!
