    [CONSENSUAL LIST] Super Reps NWBIGs

    I decided to create a list with two categories. NWBIGs and Super Rep NWBIGs.

    Many people talk about AAA+ or 1:1 out there.

    I, and maybe a lot of people here, believed, long time ago, that this actually meant something. I was a newbie in this exciting world of Replicas.

    I also noticed that, like me, a lot of newbies took a lot of time to understand how it works and kept asking on chat and everywhere : "Hey guys, what's the best watch for this particular model please ?!"

    A few days ago, someone told me about the NWBIG list.
    I found it very exciting to have a list of Reps you can buy with no second thought.

    Of course, I'm not speaking about the Super Reps that people got after going Franken !
    I'm only speaking about out of the box Super Reps that you can buy directly from TDs,
    without needing to spend hours or days to fix or mod it.

    Also, I tried to be as accurate as I could, feel free to add anything you feel important and I will edit.

    So I've taken the list and did read the whole NWBIG thread started by @timnic54 !
    First of all : You shouldn't renounce to buy a watch just because it's not listed here.
    Remember that 95% of people don't look at your watch and only 1% of the 5% can tell a rep from a gen. Don't be worried !


    Please understand that NWBIG doesn't necessarily mean "Super Rep".

    This thread is not only about NWBIG watches, but also Super Rep NWBIGs !

    Any NWBIG is not worth buying in gen. A watch can be NWBIG without being a Super Rep because the tell is acceptable.


    But a Super Rep is necessarily be NWBIG. That's what this thread is about : Watches that are not worth buying gen AND are very hardly distinguishable from the gen.

    I double checked all the watches in every page. I've gone in all the reviews thread I could find for every single of these watches to make sure they actually were considered as Super Reps. I noticed a few of these had issues or were "under debate". Some of them actually were not even Super Reps although they were often considered like they were (with obvious tells (so not NWBIG)).


    Once I finished doing the whole thing and after reading around 200 threads, I decided to create this list.

    Please, you have to understand that I've been very demanding.
    If there is any obvious tell you can spot quickly, it's NO SUPER REP, it can still be NWBIG tho if you need to be an expert in the particular model to spot it.

    This list is, what I consider, THE Super Reps list.

    In other words, I need your help for that, I would like to create a list that anyone could participate to build, discuss, debate, update; that anyone can USE and that is CONSENSUAL.


    If you see any mistake in the list, feel free to tell me.
    If you see any watch in the list that has an obvious tell, let's discuss it.

    What I want is something clear, easy to read and accepted by everyone (or almost).

    Most importantly, remember that even a Super Rep IS a Replica. THIS IS NOT ABOUT PERFECTION !
    There will ALWAYS BE a difference. This is about going AS CLOSE AS WE CAN to GEN.

    This thread is about watches that you should not buy gen because the Replicas listed in here are so good that the price difference between the GEN and the REP would NOT be justified !


    Of course GEN will ALWAYS be superior even in the smallest way.

    PLEASE, if you disagree with something TELL US WHY.
    Should it go in or out of the list, LET US KNOW.

    And if you see someone that disagrees with you, TALK ABOUT THAT, give us your input.
    I will update this list as soon as THERE IS A CONSENSUS.


    While it's UNDER DEBATE, I won't.


    So, here we go, enjoy. :-)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Updated NWBIG / Super Replicas consensual list

    21st of July, 2019 - Changing leather strap is advised
    Click here to see history list of the updates
    Some watches are discontinued (can only be found in m2m)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you decide to buy one of these watches because
    it is in this list, please always take the time to
    understand WHY it's in the list, check reviews,
    make sure you understand what you're buying.


    Note that if there are several super reps of the
    same model and unless both are awesome
    quality, only the best one will be listed here.

    FIRST CLASS category are very good reps, very close to gen, but with one obvious tell for anyone knowing what to look for or with side by side comparison.

    Please note that there are many watches out there that could fit into the FIRST CLASS category.
    This one is only about watches that have been discussed HERE as potential Super Reps and didn't get the status.


    I hope you enjoy my dedication and I hope to be part of this incredible RWI forum for long time.
    Thanks for reading, please join us ! Any suggestion is welcome.

    Credits to those who participated to the original list (@timnic54 and @simonjay, and @ALE7575 for PAMs) and all the participants of the previous thread (too many of you to name), all the guides makers and all of those who will participate here. Special thanks also to Repworld for his continuous will and dedication to enhance this list.

    Looks brilliant to me! Can't tell a single thing apart from the lack of a cloned coaxial element!

    Does the Noob 116600 sd4k A2824 belong on this list? The V2 is on the list but this is V8 and the only one available from TD's

    https://www.intime05.co/sea-dweller/...ion-a2836.html

    https://puretimewatch.io/sea-dweller...-a2824-v8.html

    My most immediate concern is the endlinks. V2 endlinks protrude from the case like gen, Noob screwed up on V7 and the endlinks are recessed or flush. It looks like from the pics on the websites that V8 endlinks are not recessed like V2. Can anybody confirm?

    Also, not sure if the V8 dial is glossy or matte. The gen 116600 is matte.

    Does this not qualify as 1st class nwbig?
    When you ask these things, you should let us know why you think it would and then we can discuss.

    It does only when only one color is a Super Rep. If it doesn't, then consider all are great.

    As for the watch, its unlikely to be the same as this list is quite old and doesn't get updated.
    This list isn't old, and is updated weekly at least.
