I love than when Rolex made dials that became discoloured and cracked the fanbois thought that was wonderful!

If Rolex made Subs with chapter rings that moved off-set they would be called crazy-dials and be worth 50x more.

And Subs with lume pips that fell out would be called Wanderers...and sell for millions.

Discoloured dials can be appealing, but the ones with cracked paint (which the fanbois call "spider dials" - aaaaarghhhh) are quite dreadful. They are, first and foremost, evidence of Rolex's dial supplier having fucked up, and fucked up badly at that. That's not to mention that if they intend to wear their "fucked-up dial" Rolex, with extensive use that dial is likely going to have chunks of paint fall off sooner rather than later.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.
