    Well the same watchmaker told me that its not impossible to source a gen ceramic bezel so he will try his best. I obviously don't get my hopes up but the best solution right now is an ARF ceramic bezel. I got two ceramic bezel ARF daytonas right now but I don't want to rip the bezels off those, so I better start looking. Can't find one on M2M sales right now like we used to see some months ago though.

      What do you think about CF compared to ARF other than the engravings being too deep compared to arf or gen.

        I'm not any experienced person on that kind of stuff, but the photos I've seen show that the depth of the engraving really ruin the CF's bezel great design. It really makes a difference, you never look at the watch exactly from the top, always at an angle, and the shadows created by the depth make it not the best choice.

          Noob delivered this week - agreed this is probably the highest quality rep I’ve ever had. Blown away. Clasp could be a bit better, and of course there’s the slight weight difference between it and gen, and the warmer gold tone, but $700 vs $28,000+ and gets you 99% of the way there ... wow!

            You hit the nail on the head with your assessment. I switched out the clasp for one with the extension. Other than maybe the CF bezel, it needs nothing.

              Did you purchase a 19LN clasp from an TD? Was it the prior Noob version? I asked about getting the ARF clasp and was told ARF doesn’t sell parts anymore.

                Buy a Noob ICE, and than put a 116519 Dial in it. Than you have the correct Case.

                  I have a LOT of spare parts and extra bracelets, etc. I think it was a clasp from a Noob GMT Batman.

                      Hey guys, a couple friends asked me if the Bezel is actually made from ceramic. What do you think? actual ceramic or some kind of baked plastic material?
