When did Rolex stop putting the beveled edges on
their cases?
Also, should the later 1665s have beveled edges
as factory finish? I have heard yes and no.

Thanks

Although if you put one into Rolex for a polish it can come back with.

Maybe not as pronounced as the DRSD versions but beveled nonetheless.
Perhaps someone can post something closer to 8,XXX,XXX for comparison.
