    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.

Some of the pics of the ARF dial do in fact look VERY close to gen when both are at the same angle and lighting - yet no one talks about this. Is the ZZF dial and insert colors better? They may very well be. But I am completely happy with the colors on the ARF.

    Bottom line, for whatever reason there is a lot of hype for the ZZF. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's a great rep and many people are happy with it. But all the things above steered me to the ARF and I have no regrets. Some people say the case lugs are too fat but I just can't see the difference from the gen - at least not to the naked eye. And to top it all off, it is only running 1 sec/day fast (2824 movement) - better than my gen! It is simply a beautiful watch.

    I fully agree on all your points.
    Funny to see how a TD tweak the QC pics to more saturated green on insert (colour manipulation I am talking about). READ HERE and the next few post below it to see what I'm talking about.
    That is why from the start people been flocking over to cheers for ZZ, as well as this new TD.
    ​​​​​Remember at a point of time a member shared a first side by side v2s with a Gen, and the ZZF V2S looks quite different from the Gen and everyone is so sad, and as if they've been cheated. The reason is most of member here purely based on photos from TD, on a screen. When it place next to a Gen, all rep will have deviation, relative to Gen. And they don't realize that.
    We need to draw conclusion for our purchase, not hype. None the less the Clean V3 insert on a ZZ v2S have a nice color on its own, less pale than an ARF.

    Cheers for Dave O for your new purchase!

    A few reasons. One, I can't stand the crown lugs on the ZZF. Instant giveaway to me. Two, many people say when they get a ZZF you need to "get an ARF bracelet, ARF hands, better crystal etc.". Why not just get it from the start? Three, many people say the bezel feel and action is much better than the ZZF. I don't know what the ZZF feels like, but the ARF is VERY close to my gen in feel and movement. And don't get me started on the rehault. Double XX? Really? Instant giveaway. The ARF rehault is very good, no XX but still is not nearly as good as the gen under a loop. From the naked eye it is fine.
