    You know, how the Gen looks?

    My QC is exactly the same and I rejected it. The one from trusty QC pics in this thread has the crown perfectly placed.
    Do I know how the Gen looks? ????

      While I agree with this, it would be cool if they gave us the old bracelet and slim hands, so that we could sand the rehaut in order to remove the engravings (and lower it if it's too tall), so that we can make a period correct early 116520 with close to no expense
      Well I guess we need both

        I’m pretty sure the watch is simply rotated slightly to the right leavingbthe left side slightly closer to the camera. You can clearly see more of rehaut at 3 than 9

          Why is everyone laughing at me for saving up for my dream watch. A fully functional reliable automatic chronograph with a sapphire crystal, 904L stainless steel and a gorgeous ceramic bezel.

          This watch costs me almost $870 after 5% credit card fees + shipping.

          A brand new Hamilton/Tissot with a Swiss 7750 movement will cost about the same.

          Can I share my QC photos with someone please? They should arrive by this weekend. My TD said he will pop the case back open and take good photos of my movement.

          Will that help me get lucky and get a reliable chronograph that I can use daily?

            You rejected the watch because of this? Wow. I hope, your TD will block your number ;-)
            Honestly - you should search another hobby. How about nitpicking?

            Do you?

            Are these CF or Gen?




            Solution: Both are Gen

              Technical he is right. It might be one or two nanometers. But this is nitpicking on a very high (or low?) level ;-)

                The crown is fixed to the dial and if you look at the minute markers on each side, the one on the right is not on top of the crown which tells me the crown is placed slightly more to the right. Gen is perfectly symmetrical.

                  I would not if it’s a $300-400 watch. It’s a $900 watch so my expectations are higher, simple as that.

                    Gen crystal makes dial popped up and shows it whiter in the shade.

                        Most of the time it is, or at least it should be, but I've seen many gens with spacing problems and symmetry issues, especially regarding the crown on the dial or the crown on the rehaut.

                        Those are the least of this release's problems

                          Perhaps they will never be able to finish their QCs…

                            Understood, I’ve just had to go and get my two Arf Daytona’s to look at mine. To be completely honest (I’m sure you’ll agree when you finally get your first rep) any mis alignment is quite simply not visible (to me) with the naked eye. I’ve been staring at mine and I still don’t know if they are perfect or not but to honest I don’t care. I appreciate your expectations are greater than mine and I really hope you manage to find the watch for you.

                            All the best

                              No

                              keep in mind that the daily Used watch needs a ~300 Dollar Service within 5 years. Quality of bracelet Pins is Not clear, you May need a replacemnt Strap or bracelet. Nobody is laughing, it seems that you have absolutely no Idea what it means to buy and wear Rep Like this

                                Spot on, please don’t think you pay your money once and then wear it for the next 10 years maintenance/cost free.
