Pearl insert drilled and set incorrectly? Really? Never seen that. Seems weird to me but are there some legit inserts like that out there?

Hi Roger,
My question was about the pearl dot on the insert of a 5512 up for auction at Christies, which you can see via the link. The pearl appears to be off center. I've never seen that before. No interest in buying it. Just curious.

Correct, The illusion created by the grime on the lower left really accentuates it.
