  1. Noob needs to fix the sun burst on the sub dials. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  2. I worn the gen for a few days and I will definitely buy it. Given the hype with Paul Newman Daytonas or four digits Daytonas,these pieces are simply "limited" compared to say normal Paul Newman Daytonas. A sub is one of the first watch I like (along with a Zenith white dual 16520 Daytona) and a 5517 would definitely by one of my grails. Compared to a 6538 or a PCG explorer dial 5513, to me this model trumps both of them. The hands and bezel are so unique and when worn it really "pops" on your line of sign comparing to a normal 4 digit Subs. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  3. Great build, but I personally found the lume now a bit too raised. I have seen the gen and its is a bit more flatter. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  4. I am struggling to comprehen how he can ask for 1200 USD? When is around 400ish with a TD. I think you better do more research over at Repgeek and RWI, for as far as I know. There isn't any "high end" RM besides the ones the TDs are currently offering. I did read where some Instagram dealers are "trying their luck" on rep RMs as the gen cost a lot and they somehow can trick people paying way more than what TDs would charge. http://www.trustytime.club/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=274&products_id=18248
  5. Swiss seiko movement? I never know Seiko (being a Japanese company) makes movement in Switzerland. Also I never heard they make movements. Care to tell us if you are buying from a TD? Or from some Instagram watch dealer? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  6. I guess the engraving would be different for a start no? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

  10. Way too soon, wait for 6months and see. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  11. Replicas in general if you are buying a reasonable price one (say 350ish and up) should be reliable. On saying that, there are a lot of variables involved. -how rough are you with your watches? -what movement doesn't it have? -what material is it made from say steel vs forged carbon -your climate? Is it humid or mild. Things get more aged depending on weather conditions -are you wearing the watch every day? What I'm trying to say is, your questions are too generalised. One version of a rep might be better than other and that could be from the same factory. For example my AD friend said customers who wear their Patek every day actually tend to return them cos some models are actually not very reliable or accurate-not many people would actually wear a Patek as a beater as they probably have more than one watch anyway. I think you might be over analysing for rep which I can honestly say is very affordable amount compared to gen. Steinhart are good watches, but to me they are pretty ugly but reliable. Is not an apple to apple debate. Enjoy reps, do your research and relax, is not an investment or a marriage but more of a hobby. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  12. My comment is about seeing gen in the flesh Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah.. Been seeing some.. I so regretted not being the gens back then.. But bought gen Pams instead Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  14. I have been on rep forums since 2010, I can't say I had seen a vintage Heuer been repped. At that time it wasn't expensive to buy a gen (1500ish USD). Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  15. Where do you base? There are severals in Hong Kong on sale. Crazy prices tho.. Is around 2mil HKD now. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
