Misread not because of the design but because I’m an idiot! :lol:

Okay, I'm not going crazy. The dial says Mark IV, the label says Mark VI... It's a Mark IV. Phew. Stress over...

Don't be so hard on yourself. When looking at the Day-Date Speedmasters I asked myself why they were all set to 2010 for the year until I realized that it was a 20 and 10 on the minute counter and there isn't a year. :loser: :problem:
