    Wondering when other dial colours will become available. Has anyone purchased the newly released Blue or Black version yet and are the DW alignment and previous 'fat font' issues sorted...?

          I tried a Raffles DW on a BP Datejust 2 but it didn't work as the diameter was smaller on the Raffles therefore wasn't aligning centrally to the window. The DW stated that it was for an ETA2836 and so was the receiving BP.

          Had it worked it would have been a good cheap fix as the font thickness looked really good

          Not sure if this DW would work on this ARF Datejust 41 but it may work on a DJ 36mm

          Raffles on left slim font, stock BP on right thicker font


          I know this is like comparing apples to bananas but thought it might help if anyone was interested in trying the Raffles dials

          EDIT: One thing I did notice was the Raffles does not have black raised gloss like print that the Gen has, although the BP does but don't think anyone would call you out for that

              The dude in the video was talking about the main flaw being the size at 40mm, but as far as i am aware the gen is actually 40mm as well. Sounds like its been repped well! Just waiting for jubilee...!

                The newly released ARF 126334 DateJust41 with 2824.

                the case size is measured as 40mm as the photo attached below.


                Did the ARF do a mistake?

                Isn’t the case size supposed to be 41mm ??

                Or Gen case size is also 40mm actually when it is measured by caliper? even though the model name is DateJust41 ?

                Any Rolex expert please comment?



                P.S. of course the caliper zeroed before measuring.

                          is the date on the 2824 correct now or still to bold?

                            Looks good,this thread had made me realise there is so many subtle differences between the makers and versions... it almost doesn't matter which new rep you get they are all pretty good. L... I remember days that they would tick

                              How are you able to tell when the photo of the watch is tilted?
