    Hazing yeah I’ve seen this... it’s not the eBay insert I have. There was a run of inserts from a seller on eBay that were decent and The green is nice imo. I couldn’t find the link for it

      You can’t find the link for the one you bought on eBay?

      From what I've seen, I always through the noob - color of the insert that is - is the closest green to gen. Also I like the recessed markings on the noob. I would have purchased one but it was a month wait and I knew I was going to change it anyway so I said “meh, might as well go with the ARF”. So I ordered it and now, the fucker has been sitting for a month anyway. I still like the idea of the ARF case, because, from what I gather it is easier to work with.

      I will say, I’m really not happy with ARF on this watch. If I planned to wear this watch out of the box, I’d be pissed. It looks like a lasy attempt or like I had the new guy in the factory assembling my watch.


      Also, one last point. When I first started thinking about a hulk build there was a thread where a guy pou together a hulk and had a thread along the entire process and he had an eBay insert that he was using. Right up until he found the gen insert.but it was the same situation I believe. Interesting to know.

        Yeah it’s hit & miss with most reps. I’ve used ARF cases for all my Frankens as they take gen parts easily except the crystal gasket on one of mine. The v1 case has fat lugs but slimmer Than the new v2... they are even fatter!, shit crown tube hole there’s something not right there. It’s way too close to the edge of the top of the case so you can barely even countersink it to fit genuine crown tube. Uneven lugs and rehaut engravings uneven spacing so they don’t line up with the dial indices. I end up hand filing and refinishing them I guess it’s part of the hobby I find fun but can also be annoying at the same time especially expecting a good ootb lol. I found the insert to be one of the better ones but they all have their flaws

          The good ebay insert is the high quality one ($39.99) from seller yangjianhai20167

          I used it on a djf v2 and it was really good. I sold the watch some time ago - but i would definitely use this insert again on a new build. This is the version with the Platinum colored numbers, not just flat white paint.

              *insert (not dial)!

                It looks like (reads like) they’re kind of pushing/selling/talking about the platinum coating on the recessed numbers as opposed to the bezel itself. Like spongebobbing an insert.

                  Looks the same as the other eBay insert just at an inflated price.

                    I can really confirm what Itto said. I‘ve got the same insert.

                    But after a while the silverish plating darkened. Not fading away. The coating is very durable. So I did a ppm with silver acrylic car color with an airbrush. Good result.

                      Got my Clean factory insert today along with my BP dial. After reading these most recent posts by mnkoshka I also ordered the vrf insert to compare. Can't wait to see it.

                      I actually haven't had much time to look at either. I look forward to scoping them out.

                        Hazing Nice work! I’ve been trying to source a BP dial for a while now. Is that a 3135 dial?

                          Hazing Did you receive your vrf insert? Thoughts compared to the CF/others?

                          Comment


                            I haven’t received the vrf yet. I’m waiting to see it in person but this post bymnkoshka

                            has the gen insert compared to vrf, clean, eBay, and ARF inserts. Take a look and check it out. Let me know what you think.

                            I was ready to install the cf insert until this post and a conversation with spongebob. I’d like to see for myself in person before stating which looks better. I just know what other people like although from experience, I know my eye goes to details that others might overlook.

                            I shouldn’t say... others overlook. That others don’t mind. Just eyes for different details.

                            So so I had to stop and order the vrf insert and the eBay insert too. Lol. I don’t know why. Mnkoshka did all the work already. Lol.
