I know the lighting makes a huge difference, but I doubt an insert with this tone will ever look like the more truly red ones we have seen in the past year. And by the way, I recently ran into a neighbor who got a May 2020 gen (zero wait--great TD relationship I guess) and the colors were somewhere between a Mk 1 and 2. True bright red, and deep vibrant blue without a purple tinge. Seems like R fac has improved the chemistry.
    I doubt very much Noob has changed anything at all with their Pepsi insert bro. It's all lighting.

    Different lighting

      this bezel looks great incl transition. Replaced the movement with ar VRF, running great. Feels like OEM after oiling the bracelet. A gen crystal will bring it one level up.

      May I ask you what the flaws were why you rejected it 3 times?

              Long time lurker. Made it through all of the pages of this thread. Really awesome stuff. Definitely bookmarked a few pages along the way. Pulled the trigger on the noob. We’ll see how the dice roll on the movement, but either way it will be another chapter in the adventure. Truly glad this place exists!

                    No I was referring to the best one ever made that you just bought.

                          Did you get your gen?

                              So today after a 2 year wait I picked up my Gen Pepsi. A very happy day.
                              Strange walking into the AD where everyone is wearing masks and gloves. These are strange times indeed. I know it's just a watch with everything going on in the world.

                              I have to say the Gen is better than the rep. I've had the rep for a few weeks now and it's been fun wearing it. After receiving it, I couldn't wait for the gen. The rep is off to a new home now....

                              The bezel colour on the gen is hard to capture even with an iPhone Pro. The blue is more of a royal blue and the red is a maroon red with hints of purple
                              The weight and feel of the rep is very close to the gen.... I'd say it's the same really.
                              If I did not have the gen, I would say the rep is a gen unless I really studied it.
                              The gen dial and bezel numbers are brighter and whiter. On the rep it's off white.


                              I love this forum, the advice, the enthusiasm and passion from the guys here.... its a great place to learn about the watches and with the reps you get to see what you are buying before paying for the gen. I'm enjoying my Gen Pepsi and Rep Coke! The coke is a badass rep.


                              Rep is on the left
                              Gen is on the right

                                Thank you for the comparison pics!! Oh, oh... red and blue tone of Gen is a different story... Congrats!
