    NOOB sd4k 116600 V8 vs V2 (NWBIG)

    I'm very close to buying the A2824 version of the NOOB 116600.

    Here's the problem - the V2 that is acknowledged as NWBIG is no longer available. I've read that the V7 has the endlinks wrong (recessed or flush with the case and not protruding from the case like gen). Also, the gen has a matte dial and is not glossy.

    Does anybody have the most recent V8 version of the NOOB 116600 and is it like the V2 that's on the NWBIG super rep list?

    I know that trustytime who’s not a TD here is selling a noob v2 and it looks like it has correct SELS. And it’s discounted 40% off atm. Not sure why. Yeah unfortunately the semi gloss dial is hard to replicate. The gen has a semi gloss/glossy finish but looks matte on certain angles because of the way it’s applied

          There is a gen gloss dial variation as well

            The fit and finish of the V2 is certainly not 'NWBIG'.
            The cut of the insert is rough, numbers are the wrong colour, and have a cross-hatched texture.
            It's good, but it's not that good. Don't think you can go ballin on Instagram and facebook with one.

              Definitely right there mate... I got spongebob mod on my v2 insert and it came out pretty good. It’s a must imo. The dial isn’t that close to either but I heard the sa3135 version had a matte dial, I could be wrong

                Really! I I’m actually interested. I owned a gen mk1 And mk2 at different times over the last few years and they both had a satin dial. They looked matte on certain angles in sunlight but they definitely weren’t full gloss black but more chocolate. I heard rumours of gloss dial version just never been able to find one

                    I don't disagree with what you are saying in this case . However are there any watches you actually think are NWBIG as you always seem to pop up on threads like Marley"s ghost when anybody mentions NWBIG . Always with a list of flaws ( sometimes ones that other people can't/ don't see ) arguing that it's shouldn't be on the NWBIG list . Just an observation I have made when reading the forum .

                          Well you said you agree with me for a start - where do you disagree? Yesterday I said the nwbig status of an Audemars Piguet ROO was not an accurate depiction of fact - and I maintain that. I don’t recall myself doing any serial listing of flaws of nwbig reps - enlighten me?

                            muiramas you seem to be in the minority on your negative opinions of this watch. It's on the NWBIG list and gen owners on both this forum and others have praised its similarity to the gen.

                            Here's the review that stood out the most to me:

                              If you cant see the difference, then great - but that doesn't mean the difference is not there.

                              Don't get me wrong - it's a great rep, especially at that price, but a $238 rep from Trusty Time isn't going to be a dead ringer for an $8,000 gen.
