  1. I'm late for the party, but how does it wear? I want wristies, since I'm waiting for my ocean one red. Not easy to get these steinharts, always sold out :-( Skickat från min GT-I9505 via Tapatalk
  2. Hi, Its a great watch. Comfy on the wrist and stunning to look at. The movement is a A2824-2 clone, its reliable. No worries. The GEN uses a 60 click bezel also, and its known to be a little light as well. So no worries. I was wrong in my first statement. This is my watch (qc) pic:
  3. Only one dealer have it right now, Angus at pt. Dont know if he is a supported TD here though. Im sure most dealers will get it eventually.
  4. Thnx Mike I will compare it to a gen later this week, my boss at the desk next to me has one on bracelet. The crystal is the biggest tell i believe. The rep is not as doomed as the gen (i will confirm this later) Brown, black, grey. It changes depending on the light. And my eyesight is not the best so could be that as well
  5. Just received this watch a few hours ago. Had to post a few pics and first impression thoughts. Now i cant compare this to a gen, so all observations are general. I compare fit/finish against other reps like Pam111 and SOSF v2. Bracelet: Was very "rattely" upon arrival. I soaked it in Rock n Roll lube and washed it off. Now if feels very good. No hard edges. Clasp snaps in as it should. SEL fit and endlinks are just great. Case: It collects fingerprints like an iphone screen! I find myself polishing the case with my shirt all the time. The inside corners on the lugs are razor sharp. Maybe its possible to sand thoose down. Otherwise the case is good, sits great on the wrist. Crystal: AR is good. Better than my Noob 111, but not as good as the SOSF v2. Its raised but i don't think its as doomed as the gen. I think.. Color hands/indexmarkers: We know they are not the same color. But you wont notice this on the wrist. This is a non issue. Dial: Just great. Pure class and good execution. Bezel and pearl: Biggest letdown of the watch. It turns pretty easy, but its a 60 click bezel. Maybe it should be like that, but im so used to 120 click bezels so it feel strange. It also feels "sheap" when you turn it, it has a bit of play and the pearl does not center 12 marker with a click. Its between clicks if you know what i mean. pearl is centered and looks good. I know an updated pearl will be released, i don't see any reason to change this pearl. A non issue for me. Conclusion: I have waited for this watch for over a year. Been following the RG thread daily. I had high expectations. But when my boss bought the gen i told myself that this would be a C&R. But im not so sure anymore. Its a stunning watch with a lot of character. The grey dial and gold hand is just purse sex. Its a small watch, but wears pretty big. This is something ppl notice. The feel of the watch is very good, im starting to really love it. I highly recommend this watch. Go get it Now on to the pics.

  9. You need to look for our trusted dealers. If your dealer is not there then it's not supported by this forum. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2

  12. I would love a 24 /22 mm strap for my pams, preferably with an rwg logo on it. Black, brown or gray. Go for it :-) Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2
  13. Last weekend i saw for the first time the Tudor Pelagos and Black Bay at an AD. And i just fell in love in the Pelagos. So this is a tribute to the Pelagos with alot of pics and links that is useful for those who want to know more about the watch. I love it so much so that i have put an order if my friend who is going to Dubai in two weeks find a good deal. Enjoy!
