    it is a very nice upgrade I d like to have as well, but unfortunately you will really notice it only under close inspection, I doubt that on the wrist you canl notice any difference of that kind.

      Unfortunately like it or otherwise, it is noticeable to me within 30cm at certain angle when I tried it on my wrist at AD.

      Especially the inverted triangle on the inner bezel

        Somehow I agree with you , when you know what to look for it is noticeable , but it is hardly piping up like a wrong crystal a wrong dial or a wrong date Cyclops imho.

          I agree.

          If you like staring at gen pics on the internet all day (like a lot of people here do), then you might conclude that the ghost outlines are NOT a big deal.


          But if you have seen a gen and experience the ghost outlines in real life, you will know they ARE a big deal and make the watch POP!

          Real life if high definition- unlike the internet.

            only if you wear for the sake of wearing you won’t be able to see it And most importantly unless the AD educate you the USP of the lume and guiding your eyes how to see it, your eyes will popped just like you well described it n I totally can’t disagree with you.

            It is truly worth to get an upgraded bezel without even closed eyes staring at internet pictures or pausing many videos just to ensure trained eyes are not strained at the loose ends... once seen can be u seen unfortunately

I have then gen inner ring without lume and that what i saw one mine. I dont have the scope here but will order one from amazon and did the comparison of it. The one that kobe24 shared while ago about gen inner vs ZF. Look similar to this. Hopefully ZF will come out something nice for Diver competes with JF. One thing i forgot to mention that some of the markers on dial were not aligned. The Dial tap and swirl looks similar to gen. Good job JF for update the dial and inner ring.

              are you sure that the dial is updated?
              comparing the pics from APNL2 with my JF9.5 it looks pretty much the same.

                This is exactly what it is. I fully agree with your observation.

                  Yes sir. Put 3 dial together. U will see the different. The newest dial more swirls, flat and wet (similar to the one which in Nine's project for XF long ago). It does look close to the gen.

                    My TD told me that's its not possible to order it separately.
                    If it's possible with your TD would you be so kind to please share your TD with me.

                    Thanks

                      JF is reluctant to sell just few bezel screws and parts in general, lol... I doubt they will this dive scale alone. Anyway they make a big big improvement and it’s very very close to gen

                        You are right.
                        I really think that it's worth to buy it soon even if I just got the 9.5.
                        I might keep the 9.5 for spare parts.

                          Agreed, but i think there's few exceptions, one of our member swapped the XF 15202 dial with a JF one .
                          He successfully sourced just the jf dial received from a td (been asked for the td and didn't got a reply)

                            Thx for the feedback.

                            Affirmatively this upgraded dial is closer to gen
                            And JF expects a spike in revenues as in order n not merely selling just the inner bezel.

                            Perhaps wait for a little before they permit sale of just the inner bezel.

                            Indeed, this upgraded rep watch is still affordable.
                            I like the idea of additional watch as a back up for parts.

                              Keep your old v9.5 and do some fantasy mod on it. Like myself i keep my v7. Gonna order the ceramic bezel and sand blast the case in grey color with white dial or matte black. I will try to source the inner ring later.
