    With respect to the flaw you are referng to, I see it and i dont in my dial relative to gen or what I think are gen dials.

    Let me try and explain, I have the v3 and the "o" doesnt seem to be as perfectly round, its ever so slightly thicker on the right side bottom.
    I've tried to compare images of my dial, with numerous gen, or what i believe are gen, images from google/ insta.

    The results ive found to be inconclusive regarding the flaw, meaning relative to most images it seems to be almost no different. I was wondering if anyone has had the same exerperience. Could it be they fixed the printing in the v3??

    Oops, just saw dharma s comparison, and seems hes reached a similar conclusion!
    Here are some photographs of 116519 dials in close up, all taken under identical lighting conditions

    First up, a genuine Rolex dial photographed in free air


    Next, an earlier generation Noob dial (probably v2) photographed installed under crystal



    And finally, the current Noob v3 dial, again photographed installed under crystal


    There's quite a difference in close up but the differences are barely noticeable to the human eye. Rather like the white dials, the Noob v3 dial looks like a step backward compared with the earlier version.

      Great pictures, thanks for posting them.

      A closer look at just the Fonts and Crown...

        The short legs on the "M" in COSMOGRAPH are still present in the v3 dial; generally the typeface is much heavier/ less precise in the v3 over the v2. Nevertheless, the quality of the 116519 Noob dial in real world situations is outstanding.

                    V4 seems to be better than CF. We just have to wait for few months if Noob will change color becoming darker...

                                That’s what this place is all about! Modding and collecting, there are many threads with a lot of info to help keep you on track. Gl
