To each his own, but I think the ZF is the best at the moment. When they improve it I will buy V2 and sell this one to my buddy who is going crazy for it.

    just look at the photos on the sites, the crystals are terrible on all KVF as well as the so called Z maker. I have 2 KVFs currently and the crystal is the worst crystal in the industry I have seen compared to any stock Rolex, AP, etc from any factory.
    Yup for me all aspects are important. So i will wait for the V2. And if they manage to fuck up V2 i will wait for V3 lol. One watch has to go into my collection and that is the 001.

                I’m tempted to buy the EURF skull, but that crystal sucks amongst the rest of the flaws. Common ZF lets get this party started!!! I just bought another watch box ready to fill with RMs lol

                  If you guys start rejecting QC for those kind of normal things into a forged material, you'll ruin the whole QC thing, remember that at one time, there was no QC pics in the rep world, and it's becoming increasingly difficult for TDs to deal with all the nitpicking rejection, be careful to not ruin the whole game because of few little normal detail like that, especially with the pic the good _DC_ shown of a gen !

                  I get you want to spend your money right, but it's still a replica !

                  It's indeed to the individual to decide, but ABD have some shitty business practice and we don't want any promotion of their activity here, not at all, I should even remove the pics with their big bulky name on it but I won't
                  No links or means to contact them shall be posted on the board. If someone is foolish enough to work with them and is so desperate to get their info, deal with that in PMs
                  There's not a gruge with a kid here, they are a not safe to use even though people used them safely in the past, if they are not a TD or SV it's for a reason (multiple reason even)

                  End of the drift, carry on with this great thread

                    Anyways, the ZF 035 is great in terms of thickness and close to gen specs. Whiteness is an issue any gen owners can tell you not folks who only look at photos.

                    Bezel mod should be doable. Peace.

                      The other problem with it is that it is huge! It’s strange because the RM027, while inaccurate, is really compact! Same movement, you gotta wonder why the size difference?!

I mean frankly at this stage who knows how all this works? My dealer who I have used and trusted for years was told by his guy that they could get it and that turned out to be untrue, can’t blame the TD for information they’re given incorrectly, it’s a shady game I guess.

                        Because it's 2019, here are the usual disclaimers: Buyer Beware; do your own due diligence, blah blah. Always use a TD. But...what if the TDs start taking you for granted and start giving you worse and worse service? Every TD is a superstar in the beginning, but the service quickly begins to degrade over time, no matter how much $$ I throw at them or how polite I am.

                        After seeing this behavior, I became quite jaded. Why bother being loyal? I can have a "new customer" experience every time, which is apparently far, far, far superior to the "old, loyal, taken-for-granted customer experience".

                        So now, I don't even look at anyone like a "TD" anymore. Everyone is just my personal shopper. If you have WeChat, you know what I mean. There are literally hundreds of folks dying to personally shop for you and can source you literally anything you want. If you want to pay 30% more on average--more if you are a PayPal die-hard, of course, you should stick with the value proposition of the RWI TD, they have de-risked the scenario quite a bit.

                        If you want to ride with training-wheels, then you just gotta wait. If you take off the training wheels, you may definitely scrape your knee a couple times, but many doors open.

                        My experience below is factual but anecdotal regarding he-who-shall-not-be-named, hereinafter, ("Voldemort").
                        • JTime could not get me the EURF RM027 even though JTime said it was "in stock" before I sent the funds. After roughly one month of waiting, I asked for a refund. Due to transaction fees, I lost $$. During this entire time, Voldemort told me he could get it. Why not, my RM-035-02 came safely. And then it was in my hands literally 5 days later.
                        • None of the TDs could get the JBF RM001 during the period I inquired. Guess who could get it?
                        • I have over $10k in transactions with Voldemort. At one point $6k pending over various items and Voldemort could have easily abracadabra with my money.

                        As we all know, if you have a bad experience with a TD, there isn't always a happy ending either. Unless you hit narrative just right and get a few posts on your side quickly, the narrative can shift just as quickly if a neighborhood bully decides to take you down, like Tucker, for example.

                        Many folks don't like PureTime's Bitcoin refund policy. If you give them 1 bitcoin for a watch, but a month later, watch is "pre-order", they will refund you 0.5 bitcoin if that's the USD equivalent at the time. A RWI member complained about this, and the admins said PT simply converted to USD immediately. That made sense to me at the time. But after going through the process, PT shared a screenshot showing they had around 70, iirc, bitcoins in their wallet. So they are definitely hoarding Bitcoin. No excuse to shortchange us like this, and imo, quite, quite shady.

                          In photoshop, I have darkened the actual Seiko movement to black, on the wrist, this gives a much more gen like appearance. If the factories would do this fairly simple process I think this would make a pretty good mod - DLC would be best and I do realise there would be an extra cost. Mind you if just getting the pink jewel changed to a clear one is so difficult then this could probably never happen!!!

                          Let me know what you think.

                            Good idea, I like it. I've done something similar with a rep and it turned out well.

                              I know the game, dont start on that with me. So when are you guys going to release the proper carbon zf plates then? As you guys said they cant be modded. Better jump in with your plates then...

                                Thats a better look indeed! Shouldnt be an issue to treat the topplate with a black plating.
