    From what I understand, the PF, among other things, has a correct shaped bezel, but the PPF has a fat bezel. But there are lot of people here that are far more knowledgeable on the subject then me

      Yup, from my limited understanding and research, the PF bezel has more gen-like proportions at the brushed vs polished section whereas the PPF's bezel proportion has the brushed surface a little bit too much. Interesting that the overall dimensions are still the same.. Second would be the crown - PPF's crown sticks out of the crown guard too much as compared to the PF.

      Hence it comes down to whether you wish to buy a PPF with the better aesthetics, and have the case modded or buy a PF base and swap the dial + hands to PPF ones. (and datewheel if avail)
      Of course if you want it to be as gen-like as possible, then you'd still have the case modded (whether PF or PPF) to achieve a better shaped beveling.

      I stand corrected in advance if incorrect, and am happy to learn from members who have more experience in this subject.

            Just added it to my favorites on my desk top. I can't remember all the details so the chart comes in handy. Thanks.

              I also found this picture comparison very useful.

              Big thanks to the original posters megapleb and Gmt16710R.

                    Worth it to upgrade from a v3 to v4?

                      If you have a v3 blue dial ppf 5711, yes. The white dial was not updated from v3 -> v4. The dial improvements are a worthy upgrade in my opinion and you can typically buy the dial separately

                        Cosmograph4Ever can mod the crown and bezel to make it more gen like. He’s posted some pictures of his work earlier on the thread or I’m sure he’d share some via PM. He currently has my ppf white dial 5711 that I can’t wait to get back

                        It’s tough to know when a factory might fix an issue. Factories have no cadence for releases so we have no way to know when and if they’ll ever fix this.

                          You are right friend
                          he did an amazing job with his mod to crown and CG but he is in the USA and I would avoid mod the watch, just my 2 cents

                            You probably have all seen this one, nevertheless, in case you haven't:

                              I read this a lot on the forum before getting a PPF and it really put my off, but looking now at the gen (picture below from a dealer on Chrono24) I really don't think it's noticeable at all. I don't think I could tell the difference unless I had them side-by-side. Comparing this gen with 2481's picture above, how much more do you think the crown on the PPF stands out?
                              .

                                You are comparing the ppf crown screwed and one gen crown unscrewed
