    Noob finally releases true clone GMTs

    Price is lower than their 2824 timebomb, so it looks like they finally got a clue.

    The Noob Pepsi hands are for an ETA movement and the GMT hand will not fit a true clone VR3185 movement. The hand hole sizes are different. You could ask for a full set of Pepsi hands from a VRF or ROF watch. TDs will not normally source a single hand.
    The information on the hands is really good to know, thanks.

    Noob is selling the Pepsi insert separately now bro. Intime and Jtimewatch can source it at $138.
    Oh really well my bad thanks for the information. Doesn't really make sense IMO as that's the only thing that justifies buying their time bombeb pepsi watches but anyway

    And unless you add gen parts it's not gonna be a franken

    Looks like it is (albeit on an Oyster).

    Not AFAIK bro. Movement pics still show an ETA, which has to be the 2824 timebomb when CHS. Noob continues to stiff its Pepsi buyers at $200 more AND a shit movement.

    You should have taken the first one bro. Your TD is going to reach a point where he won't show you any more. It's exceptionally rare to get a Noob Pepsi insert that looks close to gen at 18 transition.

    Here is mine - I like my reps for what they are and don't hate them for what they aren't. Reps will almost always have an imperfection you'd rather not have so learning to live with them is a useful attitude for us to have.

    People obsess about 0 and O shapes, slightly thicker on thinner print, but this is a dead giveaway to me.
    I personally also find the "red" way too brown, what is this, a BLBR?

    Insert is better than your second one, not as good as your first one. 255° will probably increase with a full wind. You could ask for a full wind and a new pic, but not really necessary.
