  1. They've been around a while now. Don't think there are any major reliability issues with the design unlike the sh3135/yuki and other clone movements. They aren't 1:1 with the gen though, lots of parts incompatible. Mine was damaged from the dealer and unfortunately the best they could offer me was 25% off a replacement watch. Not a TD here - RWI - and to be fair the haven't hid from the problem, they've been responsive for the best part of a year to try and make a resolution. The problem was the 225 spring was so badly bent it would barely fit the case. Assembly issues rather than systemic.
  2. If you want to sell it and cut your losses I'd be interested. I have a faulty one gathering dust too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I tried a Clark t21 on my 6238, even taking a lathe to the bezel it wouldn't fit. You can't fit a phong or mary dial without moving the subdial at 6 but it can be done Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. JF and ARF are two names for the same factory Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. They don't always list them correctly. If the dj is an ARF, even if it says sa3135 it's an sh3135. If it says noob a3135, it's an a2836-2 with a decorative plate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Just in time. These will be collectors items now! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Beautiful, a mini version of my favourite movement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. All of that is bang on... ....it's just such a shame the 116520 has possibly the worst dial in the recent history of daytona reps, they had to go and [censored] something up didn't they?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It's not just the dealers it's the factories that are worse than ever. Noob could make a 116520 or 116520 with a better dial and bezel. There seems to be some tacit agreement with ARF that one factory will sell a good looking tona and the other will produce a functioning watch with gen thickness. They knew between them that the price of gen parts would rocket so to throw together a decent Franken, not even with gen parts, you need to buy both watches. Then pay a modder to shave the dial. I draw the line. [censored] that. We've suspected deliberate collusion for some time, this absurd scenar
  14. Reliability on the new noob is fine, lots in the wild now and no horror stories. Dial on the steel version is a joke, completely wrong. Bezel isn't great either. Dial on the ceramic is better in terms of the ROLEX spacing but the Subdials are too fat. Once seen you cannot unsee. Bezel is poor compared to the ARF as well. For a Franken project it isn't going to be cheap. The fact noob have a functioning thin watch is pushing the price of gen daytona parts up, certainly on the steel model, on the ceramic forget it, gen parts are impossible to find. A good alternative is buy the noob and if y
  15. The bezel and dial aren't great. Rehaut is slightly too high. I'd wait as I think noob used up some old parts just to rush this out, have heard a few times that a v2 is coming now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
