    Time to complete and update this list.

    Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5 / 42mm (CrPO) VSF (8500 Super Clone)

    It's been half year since this came out and we couldn't find a consensus.

    The flaws are:

    -slight difference in colour for the orange number model.
    - 28000bpm rate instead of 25200 (never heard of someone calling a rep out just because the second hand runs too smooth)
    - slight difference in insert being shinier than gen
    - escapement barely visible through the caseback and no co-axial. (I doubt you can be called out without a loupe, but anyway..)

    To me the silver number is definetely a Super rep.
    the orange, too, but someone would say that the numbers are a different shade of orange (which depends on light).

    now you have all the details to decide if it's a super rep or not according to the super rep standards. Kind regards.

Hopeful they will have a revision with the correct cabachon round shape in the near future, finding a place on the super rep/NWBIG list
    Surprised the S is sold out because ONLY women can wear that watch it is tiny . I have a lot of watches on the consensual list and IMO the ZF tank solo is up there with the best of them for looking like the real thing . I purchased the XL date version and I have absolutely no worries about it being called out as a rep now I have changed the strap . However the cabachon on mine is correct . I have seen pictures of both the AF and ZF models on forums which have the LOUIS CARTIER wrongly shaped cabachon .

    I DON'T have a previous version of the XL I have the current version . The watch hasn't been updated since I purchased it . However mine has the correct round cabachon ! The ones coming out of the factories recently do not .
