          It does indeed, but the watch has a very cheap feel to it as the bezel assembly is absolutely terrible.
          You will not fool anybody with this REP. I would pay $200 for an upgraded bezel system as this junk don't cut it.

            I agree with you fully! I also received a ZF FF last week and the bezel system is indeed terrible. A major deterioration compared to the initial ZF releases of the black FF for certain!

                Hey m8, can you elaborate a little bit please, why the bezel assembly is not good ?
                I mean, I have BP FF from ZF (regular, not AL) and bezel doesn't wobble, clicks fine, looks good. Maybe it doesn't behave like gen, but I cannot know that because I never touched gen FF.

                  Dear Matt
                  My Aqua Lung has zero wobble or bezel play and that great.
                  It’s the bezel clicks spring & retaining system that sucks. The materials used are not powerful enough to make this firm and loud enough to feel and sound GEN.

                  Mine turns way to easy and the clicks are terrible.

                  4.25 listen to a GEN sound.

                  The watch looks great but don’t feel very GEN. I would pay $ 200 for $10 in Chinese parts.

                  Its just too bad there is zero spare parts around for this model or I would replace them myself.

                    So if you would have never touched the GEN you would have still have the same comment?

                      Even more so! No watch in this price range has a spring clips system this terrible. Even REGmariners are better -and thats saying something. Rest of the watch is fine.

                        Hmmmm, that makes me take it off my buy list. What a shame.

                          Regarding this aqualung version, they need to correct the "TITANE" on the lugs that is currently not true. And I'd like to know what movement is used in this rep. Once I know this I might think about taking one
                          I have FF black dial from ZF and the marking on the case is STEEL.
                          Why don't ZF just use the exact same case and brush finish it?! Putting extra effort to make mistake
                          Mind boggling

                            Maybe the bezel is the reason why puretime is listing it at $318 now? While the earlier black ss version is still $458

                              Hmmm, not so sure, the titanium versions also had a unwonderful bezel action, they're still full price. More likely just not as popular a model. that said, for $318, I've ordered one...

                              Just as a note on the gen watches, the bezel action is average at best. Using a bent steel leaf spring is a cheap arsed way to ratchet a bezel. It quickly deteriorated in my steel gen, and I've just read this : https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=636851

                              my gold Chrono is 2018 production and I'd describe the feel as "meh" at best compared to any modern, sprung plunger design that you'd find in many modern dive watches. Or on a half decent rep 6 digit Rolex...
