            I just had the feeling someone was going to say something of this sort when discussing wax treatments

              Hi, I don't know exactly what the wax treatment consists of but it was offered to me by one of our esteem modder @Harleysta91 (EU based) I suppose you could contact him

                normally girls use a wax treatment. Doing this on the 116500 is just ripping you off with another unnecessary mod. The ARF white dial is very good. It all depends on the lightning when the picture is taken.

                  both gen, first one is same color then ARF
                  second my ARF dial on noob with ARF bezel
                  Third also gen but pic taken with different light.
                  I would rather spend the money in a service for the 4130 movement instead this so called wax movement!

                    Thanks for clearing that up. I have two Arf and two noob with me and both Arf are cream/ivory and Noob is white. Looks like they used a different gen to copy the dial

                      Honestly I prefer the creamy dial, so it's great that there are gens with that color

                              Yes with the useless deco-plates and deco-rotor inside, it is normal.
                              Just remove these unnecessary parts (deco plates + rotor) and install an ETA7750 rotor instead.
                              The watch winds than much better and has much more power reserve.

                              Another suggestion:
                              When you are already removing these deco-parts and install the ETA rotor, source a small caseback (from JF Faux Chrono version, or Noob Faux Chrono 2824 version...)
                              Than the watch is much slimmer and the feeling is also more GEN like with this.
                              Also a slight service (oiling ...) will be good for these movements.

                              Yes I understand you. This watch is really nice and OOTB a very good REP. The ARF dial and bezel is just amazing.
                              I sold mine only, because I have a modded Noob with ARF parts
                              time goes by so slowly ...
