I recently found out that most Rolex watches made from 2002 onward now have a holographic rolex crown etched at the six o'clock position where the "swiss made is". This requires a 20X loupe in order to view it. I was wondering if you have Rolex replace the crystal does it also appear on the new replacement. Can someone who has had a crystal replaced on a rolex after 2002, check and see if this is the case.:thanks

Yes, the crown will have an "S" etched in the middle. BTW, it is actually etched inside the crystal with a laser. =) maverick
