It arrived a few days ago. Everytime I open a the China-package for my replica I expect it to be like 0,5 m big after been zooming in on all the reference prics, QC-pics and so on the computer screen. And when it finally comes out of the plastic wrapped around it looks so tiny And all the small "bad" details that I was affraid of wasn't even visible for the human eye Not for a 31 year old any way...
I don't own the gen unfortunately so I can't compare them but I have been watching A LOT of pics, Youtube-videos and have seen it in real life many times and this is rep is amazing!
My old sub-rep from Josh (7 years old and still works perfect) can't compare with this Noob v7 (well, maybe the dials are pretty similar). And 7 years ago that rep was considered top-notch. I've added comparison pictures but they don'r really justify the difference between them i think. The feeling and details between them are obvious IRL...
I've probably spent more money on reps than what the gen sub costs. I've only got 6 reps left in the collection and this sub is my absolute favorite.
Most of you already know the small difference between a Noob v7 and a gen but I can gurantee you that this watch would fool 99,5-99,9% of ordinary people and most of the gen-owner (it wouldn't fool you guys of course but MOST of the gen owners haven't taken notice of the "black hole" on/in the cyclop or that their watch is highly polished between the teeth on the bezel ring. Neither do they think about 0,05 millimeter difference on the SEL-fit when looking at their watch)... imho...
You guys have given me a lot of knowlege here so I thought I would give you a litte something back, for what it's worth... Also you are friendly here unlike one other forum where members screams:
"YOU CAN'T POST 3 QC-PICS HERE AND ASK FOR ADVISE! THAT'S INSANE TO DO ON A REPLICA-FORUM! THE TD IS GONNA GO BANKRUPT NOW... WE WILL HAUNT YOU AND BAN YOU FOR LIFE BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T READ THE RUUUUULES".
So thank you for that
- Rehaut very good!
- Dateween and cyclop alignment - Good (even if the picture doens't show)
- SEL - Very well I think (you be the judge)
- A little dust on the camera lens or/and the watch but perfect condition when it arrived!
Hope the pictures are ok. Taken by my mobile.
