    Quick Review of Clean Factory New Daytona 116500 Black Ceramic Insert vs. Gen

    Hi gentlemen,

    As we all know, Clean Factory has released their 116610LN Submariner black ceramic insert for about 3 months already, and using it on ZZF 116610LN black Submariner now.
    From what we heard from our customers who bought this insert, seems its quality is quite good and it is really a nice rep insert to upgrade their rep subs.

    And we have posted 2 threads about the Sub insert before as well, here are the links as reference below:
    https://forum.replica-watch.info/for...f-noob-and-vrf
    https://forum.replica-watch.info/for...16610-ln-vs-v1

    Recently there are some rumors about their Daytona insert releasing over forums, and we had many customers asking us about the Daytona insert from Clean Factory.
    Luckily we have the real piece in hand now and have prepared a quick review for everyone here to see how it looks like.

    OK, Let's go down to some pictures now.



    General Front View

    The left one is Gen insert, the right one is Clean Factory insert.
    With quick glance over these 2 inserts, it is not easily to tell obvious difference between each other.



















    Close View of Engraved Markers

    As we all can see the all details from pictures above, this rep insert from Clean Factory is quite nice on marker's shape, edges and the color.

    Here are some info from factory I would like to share with you all:
    1. This insert is produced by precise mould with engraved markers on already, not like other insert with laser engraved markers. So that we can see the edges finishing, engraving shape and engraving depth of this insert could be the best among all the rep inserts.
    2. This insert is using real platinum plating, exactly same as the former 116610LN insert. With platinum plating, we can see the color is very close to gen as dark silver. And because of the high adhesive force of platinum plating, the color will not fade away or drop off like other versions inserts on the market, as we can tell from the experiences based on their 116610LN insert.
    3. About this "Platinum Plating", factory told us that it is not that mysterious as we all think, and they already got this tech very well based on their former experiences.

    Overall, I would like to say this new Daytona black ceramic insert could be a nice choice for those people would like to have a upgrade on their ARF and Noob Daytonas.

    OK, this will be the end of this quick review now.
    Please leave comments to share your ideas and thoughts with everyone here as always!
    See you guys around and cheers!


    All the best
    Li

          Yes, Great review and Great looking product.

          Looks really good, much better than a Noob! Any idea how much will it cost, and when will it be available?

            Great review as always. I saw clean factory also released a hulk insert - did you do a comparison on that one?

                I hope this becomes available soon. And that means I won't have to buy a donor ARF watch just for the bezel

                    So annoying when ppl post totally irrelevant pictures and they end up being the cover photo of the discussion

                    Your hulk bezel looks like every other rep hulk bezel, nothing like gen

                            Indoor lighting shot of ARF v2 bezel with spongebob insert.
                            Best looking dull green like gen

                              My V1 Noob Daytona stock bezel looks absolutely mint as well. That CF platinum fill looks messy AF
