It doesn't have the deep cherry/burgundy hues of the MK 2/3, which is OK by me since factories haven't gotten that exactly right anyway. The blue is a good match to either MK 2/3.

      It's curious why the DW is so bold since it's a VR3185 (properly engraved to 3285). The VR3185 has always had a near gen-like DW. Hope that's not a bad omen.

      rockdaly bro you should edit your post to label your second pic as the previous model to make that clear to those who might not know better.
      Thanks bro, how do I edit the original post?

        Haha. That was when I picked it up when they first released and sold it an hour later for many pennies!

          Looks like the movement is VR3186 and just stamped 3285. would be nice getting some clarification on this though....

            Isn't it the very same movement as the last VRF Pepsi? Only change is the insert?

                KJ, if we are looking to drop in an OEM date wheel, would it be a direct swap with one from a 3185? (which i think is the same one from the 3135) Thanks in advance.

                  The old one had a vr3185 also. Only change is insert?

                    Any consensus regarding this so far? This version looks pretty tempting and i might get one soon!

                      No change to the movement BUT the one shown here has a much bolder datewheel font, first I've seen that on a VR3185.

                              VRF GMTs have only ever had the VR3185 movement, including this new Pepsi release. It is the best true clone rep GMT movement available.

                              RWI calls the VR true clone GMT movement a VR3185 to differentiate it from the SH and SA3186 and because it is modeled after the gen 3185. It has key parts, primarily the GMT click spring (part 3185-660, proper name 'Module for jumping hours') that are modeled exactly from the 3185.

                              The SH/SA true clone GMT's are modeled after the gen 3186, which has several different parts and a different GMT click spring. The gen design was changed to eliminate the other hands from wobbling when hour jumping but the change resulted in a weaker spring that is more prone to breaking even on the gen.

                              Gen jumping hour click springs compared

                                I need a Pepsi. I like a quality replica. Should this be getting bought or do you wait for Noob to put a decent movement in their BLRO?
