        Remove the two movement screws on the ARF, throw away the deco plate, replace screws, grab a 7750 rotor ("oscillating weight") and screw off ebay for $15 and swap them out. Viola.

        I have an old 7750 where, the case seems thicker, but the caseback is thinner .. exactly what are the external and internal measurements for a thin caseback to be installed on ARF?

          The V4 Noob Daytona is my 3rd REP Daytona panda and I am very happy with it. The first two I got I was not happy with and always wanted to mod them. But because I couldn’t find a good watchmaker in my city (Dubai) I could not mod them. I never even wore them because they felt rep and were an easy spot on. I was not comfortable wearing them in public.

          But the V4 is different.

          The flaws are not noticeable unless you look for them through a microscope and compare them with a GEN. Even the comparison we do by taking a photo of our rep and comparing it to a GEN photo online. That’s not accurate because of the different lighting, different camera and also angle of the shot.

          In my opinion:

          1) The Daytona red color is very GEN like. Yes its a tiny bit high but it’s not noticeable at all on the wrist.

          2) The 5 lines text is great because there are GEN dials that are very close to it. Again, Rolex keeps on changing the dials so you will never be able to catch up. If you decide to change the dial to an ARF then it’s your choice but trust me you don’t have to.

          3) The bezel is also very GEN like and many people who own both the V4 and CF bezel say that the difference is hardly noticeable. Both bezels have their flaws in low or high lighting but both dials are GEN like.

          For me if the flaws are not noticeable unless you put a GEN next to it and you spend 30 seconds trying to find a flaw then the rep is amazingly done and is worth every penny.

          Guys we are only spending $700 for a $28,000 watch. The watch looks very GEN like and the movement is also great and reliable.

          In my opinion anyone who wants a Daytona should buy the V4 and not mod it because it’s not worth spending more money on tiny details that are not easily noticeable on the wrist.

          Buy it and enjoy the compliments!

                What i will never understand is this:
                Why are the two Es in PERPETUAL different shapes?

                And it has been like this on noob dials from the start.

                    To be honest I cannot really judge because I never had a GEN Daytona to compare it with. But I had GEN Batman and hulk and the bracelet noob Daytona does feel cheap compared to them. It has a tingling sound when you wear it on. But I heard from other members that washing it with soap does make a big difference. I didn’t try that yet but will update you once I do it.

                      I agree. My v3 bracelet is very good!

                                I bought an oyster flex rubber strap and when I installed it on my Daytona it looked really bad because I did not have this metal part that I highlighted in the picture bellow.
                                Can you please tell me how you have it? I was not able to remove it from the actual bracelet.
                                Thank you in advance.
