                according to my source the watch should be 41mm and 12.4mm thick. The power reserve should be ~80hrs

                  Meh


                  TitleistRolex: my question wasn't to ask "Hey QueDick can you tell any flaws of this watch or that watch?!"

                    12.4 mm isn't bad. I dont think anyone will be able to get it to 9mm like the gen.
                    at least they updated the wheel for the hands to gold instead of steel.
                    face looks great!

                    if this is around 700. I think i am in for one. especially if the tour works well and is quiet

                      That's an impressive power reserve, but somewhat unfortunate on the thickness.

                      Gen is only 8.85mm, so the rep is 40% (!) thicker..

                        Gen is “ultrathin”..I belive that for at least some time replica factories will have an issue with replicating accurately such movements/models (similar to the story with the PP Nautilus)..

                          I never thought I'd be excited about a purple-faced watch, but I'll be damned. I'm on the list for when that comes out ...

                            40% is only 3.5mm. and if you can get someone to grind it down. it would be at 10mm ish..
                            I think most can live with 3 mm or 1 mm difference. considering, Gen is 100k and limited vs rep at 700 ish..no?

                              Fully agreed that it's difficult to replicate accurately the thinness, it does seem to be the 'final frontier' (besides supercomplications).

                              I could live with 10mm, even 10.5mm, but 12.4mm is unfortunately pushing it imo, particularly as gen is labelled as 'ultra thin'.
                              Of course that's my opinion, and I'm just anal about thickness on thin watches. Like, I don't care about 16mm on a PAM or a Knights of the Round Table, but a 15400 or a nautilus..

                              On grinding, not sure if it's possible, even the new 44mm open caseback ROOs can't be thinned..
