    AP 15202 news: Looks like JF released a v2

    After perusing Youku, I found a recent (August 30, 2019) video showing a JF15202. While the date took some time to flip over, eventually it showed up, and it looks like they've updated the date disc FINALLY. All other details look the same to me, so this is probably just a soft update. I'm curious what the experts think though. Dial still needs work to my eyes, and it's not very thin still, BUT the updated date disc is a major improvement and 9.5mm isn't the end of the world, so I've pre-ordered it. My TD says wait time is one month.

    Wouldn't really call this a V2 when only the date wheel font got updated. Literally everything else is unchanged.

      Like I mentioned before, each of us has pet peeves and flaws which we just cannot accept. For some its the movement, for others thickness and yet others date font.
      I am glad if the date font does it for you majwilliams0308 and I think you already know that the watch is still flawed in many ways, even as a rep. For example, there is no excuse for JF to get that dial print messed up so bad if they can get the "swiss made" print good on the 15400. Same printing method.

      I am not into the 15202 myself but simple observation will tell you that it needs a lot of refinement before it can be considered a rep of reasonable quality.
      Today is the Tomorrow you were worried about Yesterday.

        that side photo made me go soft real quick. major cockblock

        also if possible the CP is even worse
        I'm in love with the shape of Roo // Sucker for 3-6-9 dials

          As legend has said that. People have different tolarence of what flaws they can accept.
          For me the the Hand Base or Cananon Pinion size is the main one. On the Gen it's Petit, it's elegant, goes well with the balance if the whole watch. On the rep it's in your face fat and ugly. Secondly the Dial just the over all finish of the printing is lackluster.

          I am not to picky on the thickness coz that can possibly rectified by removing the Deco and using a flatter CB from the quartz version.

            The dial printing, specially the AUTOMATIC is what kills it for me.

              to be honest the printing isnt really an issue because its the effect of the dial in real life it looks better.

                While this may be the case it wouldn't have taken JF much more effort to make the printing a bit deeper. Currently it looks faded and at certain angles it almost looks like there are blank spots in the printing.

                      Its just the lightning i have the V1 and its not the case (maybe they made in worse on V2 i dont know).
