    KVF use the same garbage base with decoration on top. While some factories use a seiko (clone) movement like ZF - the majority uses a 8215 miyota (clone) aka DG2813

    In each case no 3-hand RM got the right balance wheel position movement wise and so comes no one is abled to show a moving balance wheel underneath the deco.

      I see Yeah, watching some videos of the KVF version this is clearly the case there as well. Strange that this turned out to be such a problem.

          I would say that RM001 by JBF is the best RM rep available. It's reasonably close to gen both visually and functionally, That, or the crazy expensive RM027 ($1300 rep). Both of these have real tourbillion movements. RM027 appears to be a totally custom movement too.
          Problem with ZF reps is that they are lacking functionally, due to having a tourbillion/balance wheel that's just a static decoration. But they are constructed really well otherwise.
          I think that ZF's 56-02 is going to be great, because on that one, the movement is supposed to be mostly concealed anyway,

            For me the spelling mistake ‘sweiss made’ on the RM001 (v1 and v2) is a big red flag. Other than that I agree. It’s a good rep.

              just wondering, in what situation(s) would folks be looking at / examining the bottom of your ~$250k watch? I cannot imagine such a situation personally, unless that person is very close to me, then they would already know it's a rep anyway.

              I actually tried to have modders get rid of the "SWEISS MADE" altogether by sanding, but they couldn't do it. I remembered when comparing to the Gen, the Gen didn't even have any "SWISS MADE" engravings.

                I don’t care mate if any one examines my watch. I have a problem with imperfections like this. They are a thorn in my eye. I couldn’t look at that every day.

                  While that's indeed a dumb mistake on an otherwise nicely done rep, it's on the back, and fairly faint. I don't mind it at all, and it can't ruin my personal enjoyment of the watch, as I never see it The back of this watch is not that great, let's face it. Those fake gears on the back deco plate are far more obvious than the small misprint
                  But from the front, the watch is really good. Btw, it has a 4hz tourbillion movement, which rotates so smoothly! I've never seen something like that in real life, not even on any super expensive watches that I've had luck seeing - they were all 3hz. Actual RM gens are also all 3hz, as far as I've seen.

                    You both convinced me. I think it’s better at hand. And on the backside a spelling mistake matters less.
                    I do like the black one of the JB RM001, even though I know it’s a fantasy colour combi.

                      If you like it, go for it. I mean, even the gen itself might as well be a fantasy model, as so few of them were made that it's unobtainable
                      Plus, RM has made so many crazy designs and color combinations that it's impossible for anyone who's not supremely prepared to just outright say what's fantasy IMO. I think it's impossible not to be impressed with this watch, with how much it does right - and the movement is a freaking marvel. Both smoother rotating and longer lasting PR than the gen, and it's pretty quiet to boot. You can see my impressions in this thread - I did have some nitpicks too: https://forum.replica-watch.info/for...y-update/page7
                      Plus you'll see some ideas for strap replacements and mods there.

                        I think Both the ZF RM052 and the JBF RM001 v2 have they own good points and bad points. Making me can't decide which to have. Love the skull rugged outlook and yet love seeing the moving tourbillon in the 001. haha... Hard Pick Mannnnnn.

                          Skull is sick in my opinion. Sucks to not have a tourbillon, but this watch is out of this world!

                              Just approved QC for the Skull. The non-tourbillon movement is a bummer but the overall quality and dimensions are what really pushed me to pull the trigger. If it is anything like the RM35, I'd be very happy.

                                That skull is very nicely made and keeps reminding me of Terminator. hahahaha
