    116610LV - HULK - Owner's Club - post em if you got em



    i'd like to give a shout out to Bonesey for initially starting such awesome anticipation and initial review threads for this long awaited rep. there have been a few versions out now and along with the very good noob version and even more recent releases i think it's time for all us Hulks to band together and represent.

    this is such an anticipated watch and there has been tons of debate on the fora about the colors not being correct etc. blah blah. the reality is that the green sunburst dial and the green shiny ceramic bezel are almost impossible to accurately represent in photos. even in real life the watch RADICALLY changes its look depending on the ambient light and the direction of light it's reflecting.

    check out this collection of all gen pics and see for yourself how the green looks different in almost all the pics.



    so lets not sweat the small stuff and celebrate our love of green.
    only requirement to join the Hulk club is to of course own one and then post a pic of it here in this thread. doesn't matter what version you've got, the more variety here the better.

    i'm including the .pngs of the little emblems in the title graphic here at the bottom of the post so feel free to scoop them and use them in your signatures if you want.

    now on to the fun...me first.
    mine's the noob version released recently this summer, mods include, of course my 4P bezel mod, correct handset, fabulous pBdad pearl and the bracelet engraving paint mod.
    :jellyg:

    As others have demonstrated, Clean Factory insert isn’t the answer to our prayers for a gen like insert. So with the hulk it’s about choosing an insert that suits your personal tastes.

    In real life they look platinum with a tinge of gold mixed in. They do look dark out of direct light but not as dark as on those photos. In direct light they definitely look platinum. It’s a chameleon and constantly changing in different lighting which is what I love about the hulk.

    My Noob insert looks white on the numbers. I had to use a loupe before I realised there is something silvery there. But to naked eye it just looks white. Light or dark it looks white with light on it or white without light on it. No chameleon at all.

    Different people will have different preferences here. I see people wanting the numbers to be bright in the dark, Clean Factory numbers aren’t and the gold hue amongst the platinum is more noticeable. In bright light it looks very platinum and not so much noticeable with the gold hue. It doesn’t look white at all. It’s amazing in its changes in different lighting, the noob isn’t.

    But some will prefer the noob from reading what they’re after on here. Not me, the Clean insert looks way better to my tastes and gives me what I want.

    Indoor natural light, do you mean not in direct sunlight but still sunlight lighting the room?

    FF, it's a factory dealt by a TD on a sister forum.

    I thought it'd be too green too, but I got tired of the steel bracelet and really wanted a rubber strap for swimming. Tried on black and black with green stripe - didn't like them. The green strap ended up looking the best out of the 3.

    Cheers.
