      My ZF diver arrived today. Looks pretty good. Some areas are not 100% clean, but overall it is very nice to wear. I had to try the bezel. Does not feel too good and as legend always say I will avoid touching it in the future.

        Update:
        after 9 days of wearing it I already lost a caseback screw.
        Naturally I am very disappointed :-(
        I wrote Toro, where I ordered the watch, to please send me a replacement. Let’s see if he can help me.
        Has anybody experienced something like that with a ZF 15703?
        After reading everything here I had very high expectations.

          Its a general rule to replica watches to ALLWAYS tight your screws when you recive a new watch, and check them again time to time.

            I just tightened the rest of the screws and pretty much all were loose. Same for a 15500.
            This is hard to understand. There are much more complicated processes in making a watch than tightening the caseback screws. I did not expect something like this. I guess I had to learn it the hard way.
            Anyway: my TD promised to order one. So hopefully that will work out.

              Can someone help me understand the love for these watches? E.g. by posting some pictures of an AP diver you love and telling me what you like about it..

              So far all divers I have seen look like G-Shocks kid's watches.. and so thick..

                    In the same way some guys love fat chicks. If you have to ask why, you'll never understand the answer.
                    If I'm not here you can find me over there.

                      Many years ago, I thought more or less like you, then I bought my first AP, the RB II… and wow!! My mind changed radically … now I think RM are ugly as F… but if I try one maybe I change my mind again.
                      Taste in watches is not same trying than watching in pictures.

                        They are huge watches, they wear more like a 46mm than a 42mm due to the gigantic crown guards. Whilst 14mm thick doesn't sound like much the fact that the sides go straight down without any curvature make it feel like a 16-17mm thick watch.

                        I would like them to make a smaller version but doubt they ever will.

                            It doesn’t work that way.

                            You can get 10 different guys posting their divers and telling you why they love it and you can even find it appealing on their wrists but a watch is very individual and your connection with it will be highly subjective.

                            You either like it or you don’t and there is nothing wrong at all if you don’t like it at all.
                            The diver is a relatively chunky watch and like any other AP it’s not for everyone.
                            Nobody can explain the appeal of a watch fully to you, and transfer that appeal to you with their words. Ultimately you still have to try it on and see how it works for you. Just buy one and try it on. It beats everyone trying to tell you about it. It’s not an expensive watch, just flip it if you don’t like it.
                            Makes sense?
                            Today is the Tomorrow you were worried about Yesterday.

                                Not really sure how to explain personal preference to you.

                                Some people like Porsches, other people think they look like Volkswagen beetles. Some people like Ferraris, some people think they’re overhyped fiats for old dudes.

                                Same thing, some people like AP’s whereas some people think they’re ghastly. We can’t really convince you to like something that you don’t.
