    As far as it seems those speedbumps do differ on each piece, some are more significant, others are not that visible. Honestly it should not be a big issue unless you look at close-ups. The colors look on-spot, at least from these images. I'm really curious about those QC's.

      Insert colour looks perfect to this gen.

            The biggest problem on this rep is the actual bezel profile. The Pepsi does not share the same bezel as the Batman/black model.
            Pepsi has a more shallow bezel with different teeth shape and a thicker lip profile(noob got this correct actually) which also gives the crystal a raised profile compared to other GMT’s. Pic below shows this pretty well. Unfortunately VRF have simply used a standard gmt bezel.

              Unfortunately, most factories do not attach importance to a correct bezel shape.

                But there is also a black GMT with the Pepsi bezel.

                        That speed bump is so hard to unsee once you know it's there especially @ 6 o'clock....They really nailed the color though...

                          The red is Ferrari red in those pics - way too bright for a match to any gen MK. It's pretty, maybe Rolex should have used these colors. Looks like the 5 digit Pepsi colors.

                          The datewheels on these samples look horrendous but that may be due to a bad crystal/cyclops. The distortion in the cyclops is so apparent at even slight angles that these crystals would not even be usable. An embarrassment to be seen with.
