    phlu It's really something. Are the day and month the same depth as the gen, or a little deeper? It's so hard to judge from the photos.

    Hi everyone.

    Mine was just delivered. I think I'm in love. This is my eighth rep, and clearly the one which sounds more "gen like", out of the box... I'm quite impressed.

    Had a late night impulse yesterday and ended up ordering the blue 5726.

    I already ordered the XF Overseas Ultra-Thin 2000V earlier this week and I wasn't planning on buying another watch, but that blue 5726 is just too nice to pass on....

    I also approved my QC for a white 5726 from Lucy.

    Just to answer the question a few weeks ago, yes, you can still buy the 5726 (blue). I just got my QC pics last week from puretime.

    Received mine from Hont today, looks great and quality is special for a rep. Only problem is date has stopped turning now normally and with the pushers, seems to be stuck.

    Has anybody had experience of this and resolved it, if so? Otherwise I am trying to find a watchmaker in the UK to do a service on it.

    Gen Datewheel / Grey Dial on PPF Base.

    The PPF Grey is a very nice watch, but when next to the Gen Dial, it's insane how instantly dull it looks. Looking at the two side by side, the PPF Grey is too blue and flat. Shipping off to builder today, can't wait to get this baby done.

    Aligning movement with dial is pretty basic stuff for a watchmaker

    I see you're in the UK, like me...can you recommend someone? I have several jobs which need doing, some for reps and some for gens. It would be great to get them all done by the same person.

    I would accept the watch (because it is gorgeous) and rectify at the first service
