The Grey whale travelling the wrong way


Unlike the long studied population travelling every year between Alaska and the lagoons of Baja California, the highly endangered Western Pacific grey whales are not so well known. Those whales spend their summers around Sakhalin Island in Russia, and scientists wanted to find out where they spend their winters.

When you look at a Rolex Submariner's dial closeup, you'll notice that the lume is evenly applied, and that everything is cut very well.

A good example is the sapphire crystal. Rolex replica watches sale applies a coat of AR on the bottom of the crystal, but not on the top. This allows for the top of the crystal to be reflective and sort of makes it more shiny to onlookers. This is arguably a design decision by Rolex replica watches sale to make their products stand out more. It works too. The Rolex Submariner replica watches sale case has changed very little over the years, but each improvement is welcome. The current size of the Rolex Submariner swiss replica watches is 40mm wide, but it wears large for that size. This is because of the lug structure. I would say that the piece wears closer to a 42mm wide watch.
