    15400 JF V4 brushing problems....

    hey there,

    im in the process of getting a black dial 15400 jf v4 and couldnt get hold of a version with a straight brushed bezel yet. always slightly right angled. anybody got similar experiences out there? it seems that v3 versions never suffered from this problem. does anybody know if this is a easy fix for a modder or do you think that it is not that notible on the wrist? pic shows what i mean. thanks for your input.

    Not a huge difference at this point, until you get to the movement. That's a whole other story.
    I agree that gen movement is a whole different realm from the rattly miyota.

    I would personally not accept this watch. I had to go thru 3 QC to get mine. My fist QC was missing a marker, my 2nd QC was with terrible brushing like yours. And 3rd ended up being the fist one with the marker missing, but they put the marker back on. That's what I received, and love it.

    The incorrect brushing would annoy the crap out of me.

    So please don't be obsessed, and if you want to nitpick, understand that the rep 15400 is flawed in many other ways, and this should not be a concern at all, or an impediment for you enjoying your watch.
    Also, for those who are wondering, the "AP" logo on the crown is aligned in a random direction and will likely not be aligned in the "correct" way.
    On your watch, the hands and dial tapisseries are already tells, but the "swiss made" printing is good.
