    Review of Another High Version 50 Fathoms 5015 vs. Gen (A Better Choice Instead of ZF or Noob?)

    Hello guys!


    Glad to post a review on RWI again.

    Today I am going to share another nice rep Blancpain 50 Fathoms (ref. 5015-1130-52) to you all.

    I believe it has been rarely seen both out side and in China because it is not publicly released to many dealers yet.

    Here we go!



    General Front View
    As you can see, it is kind of difficult to tell the difference if you just casually have a quick glance over these 2 watches.
    Here is a point should be mentioned:
    The sapphire of front glass and insert are dealt with special coating turns out a very clear effect.



    Logo Printing on Dial
    It's using the same way to apply these words and logo onto dial as genuine, and they look like almost exactly same as genuine.



    Hand Stack
    The hands made seems nice and really close to the genuine.
    But there are 2 obvious differences here when we look at it such closely I suppose:
    1. Space between hour hand and dial is smaller than genuine.
    2. Space between second hand and minute hand is bigger than genuine.



    Date Display Window
    Well, as we can see this part on rep may be not that good.
    1. The numeral font is close to the genuine, but still slightly different.
    2. The edge of the window is not well dealt with as genuine.



    6 O'clock Position View
    Words printing on the dial is as good as upper Logo printing I suppose.
    6 numeral marker is great in shape and 3D built effect, almost same as the genuine and even the lume color.



    Bezel Teeth
    The edge and the shape might be the best version close to the genuine compares with other rep 50 fathoms.



    Crown Side
    "JB" engraving seems nice on 3D effect.



    Front View of Crown
    It's seems a little bit wider than the genuine, but with good edging and shape.



    Back View of Crown
    The detailed shape of crown guard is a little bit different from the genuine.



    Engraving Side
    In orde to achive a better 3D detailed effect, the rep is using CNC engraving machine to do the job.
    It is close to the genuine, but the font seems a little bit deeper and wider.





    Case Back
    The engraving is same as side one, close the genuine but not very good at details as the genuine.



    Inside of Case Back
    Same engraving as the genuine, its font is a little bigger and darker.



    Anti-Magnetic Case Back



    Lume Cube at 12 Position
    Here is an important point should be mentioned:
    The genuine lume cube in fact is under the sapphire insert, so there is a tiny space between lume part and the domed sapphire turns out a 3D effect with shadows.
    This rep is the only version using the same insert structure with a lume ring as the genuine in this industry, you will see later.
    I beleive other factories fill the lume materials in the insert sapphire directly instead of putting a lume ring under the insert.



    Genuine Insert Structure



    Rep Inser Structure
    Sorry about we didn't tear the insert apart, but it is same as the genuine.



    Lume Ring
    It is the only one 50 fathoms using a lume ring like the genuine, evne though it's a little bit yellower than the genuine.
    But I think this difference will be hardly noticed when the lume ring is under the sapphire insert.



    Lume Effect View





    Tang Buckle
    It seems nice no matter the polishing or shaping.



    Lug Screw
    It looks a little different from the genuine, but it can totally replace the genuine screw as we already had a try.



    Movement
    Asian 2836 bronze movement, nothing special.



    Final General View

    OK, these will be all I have to share. Hope you will like our post.

    In general, it's not a perfect rep but I'd like say this one maybe better than other high rep versions at lume effect, marker shape, bezel structure, detail treatment and etc.

    And I am sorry to tell that due to some "political" reasons here in this industry, we could not compare it with ZF verison or Noob version directly even though we can easily get these watches back.

    You know, everything I said above is only my own opinion, and everyone will be welcomed to leave a comment here no matter what it would be.


    Thank you all and cheers.


    All The Best
