Q2 White Lettering Wearing Off

I was reading the comments on the new Leica Q2 Special Addition.  It is pure camera comedy gold whenever Leica produces a special addition (or any camera really).

The comments are hilarious.  The James Bond quips (Danial Craig is the celebrity name on the camera) are classic.

When I saw the price I was shaken, not stirrred.

I'm waiting for the Pussy Galore version.

Do you need a Gold Finger to push the shutter release?

On and on ... It gets hilarious and I'm sure Leica loves it and feeds off it because they know most of the commenters would immediately buy a Q2 if they could remotely afford it.

Anyway, this one OP said he wants the camera but is afraid the gold paint would wear off.  So I grabbed my Q2 and on the back it says in prominent white lettering:

Leica Camera
Wetzlar Germany

You can barely read it.  It is about one-third worn off.

Anyone else notice this?
