Do either of the parents have a bicolor effect with the darker fall color only on the upper surface?
The pod parent of this one was a very dark seedling, near black . . . from (Silverado x Latin Lady) x Theme Master.  (I think the <tall> pod parent on this seedling matched your description . . . yet again, I discarded it when I moved.)  TM brings into play Autumn Encore, Roman Lover, Feed Back (2), Orbiter & Violet Classic.  Unfortunately, I didn't bring the pod parent with me, but memory doesn't indicate an overlay.  Theme Master is a bitone with narrow rim. 
Now the pollen parent was Tara's Choice.  Here we have Inferno, Her Royal Highness (Well Endowed & V. Miracle), & Feed Back (again). 
The darker rim can easily come from TC.  There's a hint of plicata mixed in. 
I'll be anxious to see this one (1701-1RE) bloom again because the photo indicates a partial narrow rim, but it could be weather damage.  Too long in the bud. 
Of course, I have to remind myself that it could be one of those "1st" bloom anomalies!
