SUPER AP DIVER REP - Where can I purchase the best?

Recommended Posts

Hello all - This is my first post ever. I want to purchase the absolute best AP Diver Rep that is available. I have heard InTime and PureTime (not sure which dealer is better???) are the two best dealers. I am looking at these two watches:

They both seem okay - the decoration on the movement isn't the same as a GEN but the rest is okay (I wonder why they are priced differently). Can anyone recommend the BEST dealer or best place to buy a SUPER rep. I am willing to spend up to $700.00 on one. 

 

Thank you in advance to whoever helps me out here!

Either one is a fine dealer.  Movement decoration should matter less to you since it is a solid caseback.  This v7, I believe, is the best version.  Your only upgrade might be a Legend date wheel and a Tissot Powermatic movement swap to 21,600 bpm.

@mule play Thank you for your help. In your opinion if I choose one like this (it has a clear caseback):

Is the clear case back more of a tell that it is a rep ? If so I plan on going with a solid caseback (not sure who would want to purchase one with a clear caseback in that case)

 

Also - You said the V7 is the best version. To clarify, this is the one from InTime:

This is better than the V8 from PureTime?

Thank you for helping me!!!

I personally like the solid caseback version....and thus own one. My reasoning is that if/when the movement dies or I decide to invest in a swap....the Tissot Powermatic will be dropped in. I do not need to worry about the view so to speak.

I would purchase the intime version for $538 and follow the new date wheel thread in this forum. Also, start lookong for a powermatic movement to drop in.

@mule play did you do a double AR? Do you recommend doing a double AR coating? I want my AP to look as shinny as possible

I did not....yet.  I have mine factory stock at this time.

i've made a Douple AR on both Crystals.
it looks like there's no class inside.
I've also installed a selita 200 movement and its waterproofed on 40m
Its the v6 version.

Go for the closed caseback, I would say take the JF V7.

I've got my AP Diver Noob V5 with stock AR. I've got a JF V7 on the way also getting a 2xAR for the watch..
