        If they put the correct date wheel in and try a little harder on the endlinks, I'd say this is as good as it gets, yes. BUT! It seems they'll never be able to replicate the liquidmetal in the bezel which is very obvious tell once you've seen the original - and with the new POs now all sporting liquidmetal bezels, more people will be able to distinguish it from the glossy paintjob that they use on the reps.

        Here's a gen vs. v5 shot

              Are the 12 markers straight now? Will never be a super rep when the 12 was all crooked and fucked up in all the past versions

                The 12 markers look as if the people making the dial are just not used to seeing Arabic 12s. The 1 is slightly higher than the “2” and the “2” isn’t perfectly parallel with the “1”.

                I also can’t believe what a deep hole that the date wheel sits in. I get these are macro shots.

                Still I have not bought a rep in ages, because of the amazing amount of micro brand watches, especially divers that do look really good and they don’t have these flaws.

                I really want one of these, but the date wheel depth and 12 markers are killing me.

                The fact that it talks 1-2 months to order and receive is also pretty bad.

                  if you really want an LMPO rep, then this is the best time to get it. This rep has never been better, don't let the 12 or anything you wish were made better stop you from getting it. This watch is a real stunner

                        Easy to say but if you get one with a crooked 12 you wont be able to enjoy the watch. Once you see a flaw your eyes immediately get drawn to that area every single time. Its human nature. I tried to settle many times for things like this but it just ruined the watch and eventually sold them.

                        The "12" marker being crooked is just a QC issue if they applied the numbers carefully we wouldnt have any of these flaws. Its amazing though that all these iterations of this model they cant get basic things like alignment correct. Amazing.

                          you're right, it does'nt add up. I would say they could make everything correct but they wont, it's a part of the game. They do it intentionally so they can keep their businesses on. It will be stupid for them to give us a perfect replica.

                            I don’t think they do it on purpose at all

                                There is a big possibility maron. The v1 v2 etc almost never comes with only improvments, but with drawbacks too. You know it better than me. It is just a theory of course, but what ever this might be the outcome from it still gonna be the same for us.
