    Decide on your own... Here we go.

      Great post man. Do you think that a BP bezel assembly would fit on the JF case? I'm trying to think of a way to put a gen insert on a JF without getting a gen bezel assembly.

        Thanks man. Yeah that was one of my biggest challenges all the time
        but if you have a JF LN assembly, a gen insert could fit here as well. So why to change?

        In 1-2 weeks I will try a TW bezel assembly (gen insert fits there but needs little glueing, which I prefer instead of sanding). If BP should also have gen specs I would say chances are good to fit with BP retaining ring because JF accepts TC, Gen and maybe TW. But I never tried, so cannot guarantee.

                      As you can see in this thread, I bought a rep JF 16610LV insert some time ago that was stated as gen, possibly with a gen pearl. So maybe JF is an option as it’s good enough to fool. Color is a bit different but apart from that very w.

                      I do have this one still lying around and no time for all the bureaucracy to fight for my loss...maybe I would sell this for 100€ but honestly, this is just because of my personal imaginary value to this item... you can get from a TD way cheaper

                        i see, thank you, i will eventually purchase the JF 16610 and start from there, i would add a gen datewheel and a better green insert, correct me if i'm wrong, but the JF insert is a bit olive, and i prefer the lime lighter color

                          Left gen, right JF
                          But gen has two different greens that had been sold

                            Gen datewheel and a service are the the next two things on my shopping list.
                            I'm also going to pull the bracelet apart at the SEL's and replace that silly little springbar with solid pins. I've seen a few fail, and it worries me.

                              this is what i'm talking about, there are many different colorations, i was wondering if there was one like the lime one, (B3)
                              what is the color of the rep? (b1,b2,b4,b5?)

                                Oh great pic for comparison.
                                Actually I can distinguish only between B3 and the rest, without having all of them next to each other that’s why there is only two main green versions available where I can differentiate.
                                Not sure but WSO on eBay might have a B3 version available, problem is that they have horrible pearls. JF is rather dark b4/b5 I would say
