    The movement is is a powerhouse, absolutely no need to service immediately and mine is running +1.8seconds.
    Thanks for the reply! Looks like puretime did a great job water testing it, I'm most likely ordering mine from intime, not sure about them haha

    +1.8 seconds is very accurate!

      Puretime have just tested it, not actually made it...

        For those that got it, how is the 2824 clone holding up? Is it keeping good time? Do I need to get it serviced by a local watchsmith upon receiving it? .......

        Also about the water resistance of it, .......
        Movement:
        It is actually A2836 not A2824. The 2 movements are basically the same except the 2836 adds the extra complication of the date. In any case the rep makers have gotten much better at building these things than they were 5 or 10 yrs ago. 10 yrs ago the advice to get your rep serviced right away was most likely pretty decent advice. Today: I just don't think it is sound advice any more. Wait until something happens. It'll probably last and if it doesn't then do something about it. Mine is running -2 or 3sec/day which is simply amazing.

        As far as water testing:
        I will test mine and report the result, but I would confidently lay 20:1 that it will be fine. Divers from the better rep makers have been MUCH better in this regard the last few years. I think the advice to get it tested is still good advice if you are doing anything more than washing your hands with it on, but odds are good that it will be fine.
        Really... ....... :P

          Mine is a tad noisy. I’d prefer it a bit more quieter.
          Apart from that... it’s running like a dream.


          god damn that diesel is ugly! I want one.

            I agree! Its is a bit, just a tad noisy when the wheel rotates to wind the watch! But I’m comparing it to the Gen that is dead quite! :P
            (Edit I take that back! I actually shook the Gen and it’s quieter but Rep is pretty similar!)

            Hahaa! You can have it!

              Mine is not noisy at all. I guess you can hear it if you really try, but if you compare it to any miyota 9915 or any 7750, Asian or swiss this thing is very quiet. Comparing it to a gen ETA 7750 that I have I would say it only creates 20% of of the noise that my 7750 creates.
              Really... ....... :P

                Mine makes almost zero noise, the most quiet movement I've ever had on a rep.

                      Fascinating step by step photo breakdown of how the Gen TTSG 300m is put together from a Omega Boutique event.

                      That dial is the same as the black ceramic/titanium 43.5mm no date version. Positive relief waves rather than later cut.

                      Hope VSF do their magic by the end of the year on that one.

                                Hey all, so I just got some QC photos for my VSF V2 (already rejected one due to bezel being off). My chief concern is that the right marker at 12 o'clock seems to be higher up than the left. Does anyone agree? If so, noticeable enough to reject?
