    and charge you $750 for a movement upgrade. EFF THAT! I think i'll pull the trigger on this myself. Not fond of the bold date font and since I don't have the mod skills. I am a little hesitant.
    But more than likely...this is a buy within an hour of me debating in my head. I'm sure my keyless just needs to get fixed on mine...but its beyond my skill. I need to see crystal height of this.

    and then for a VSF blueberry and I'll call it the year till after chinese new year.

      I would wait for some QCs - more than one. VRF has a history of inconsistent insert samples. Their second batch of Batman inserts was atrocious - the blue went well up into the 8 in 18, and in one case even completely past it!

      This new VRF Pepsi is still a two piece insert unlike the Noob and while its colors are arguably better, you can still see a join line at 6 like the GMF suffers from. Some GMF samples were pretty bad with how much the join line was visible. Others were OK, it's luck of the draw. People resorted to a paint mod to improve the appearance.

        yeah i had to resort to the paint mod on my GMFv1 to bridge that gap only 1 side. my first reject had both sides issues. i think on my third i couldn't see it on red paint....it worked out fine in the end.
        noob has the only nice union between red and blue. however i'm not all that fond of the insert color. while we are aware of the mk1, mk2, and mk3. i believe it to be off. i do think its an impossible task if the hopes are that its as gen as possible. i don't think the colors will ever never ever be close enough. so I except that. i do happen to think the VR max is closer. my opinion. i know KJ has a noob. i've seen others. i love the union of blue and red on the insert....but color wise....its not my preference. then noob price for just an insert with time bomb movement. no thanks....and what wait till its corrected. I think VSF is also taking a shot at this....maybe ARF but I heard that last year. all seem to have union issues. this VR max is the same price as my GMF v1 with a 2836-2 .movement.

        to me pricing is right with a clone movement. bezel is obviously key...there are QC issues. thing is i can post a good one....next person may not be so lucky. i will slow myself down and give it a moment. noob lately is overrated to say the least.

            Hopefully that datewheel is just a one off, looks fine on their other watches with the same movement

                  VRF has a new GMT with CF bezel, could it be that the Pepsi insert is also from CF?

                      Noob is just rubbish. Even though it is the best known available it's shit as the blue/red transfer is totaly wrong and doesnt match with none of the Gen MK I, II or III inserts. the transfer zone on the three gens is all the same and all other available is just wrong.

                      If the new VRF Max is better has to be seen when first QCs are ready...

                          Yup, can't fault them though. Still cheaper and yet better than noob.

                            Noob is just trash.

                            Happy that a better watch with a better movement is available for less, even if they did this 50$ magic trick here lmao

                                Looks like I managed to get in before the price rise! It must be generating a lot of interest & I doubt it’s the factory that put the price up, be interesting what other TDs do.
