    New VRF Pepsi GMT Max

    It looks like VRF upgraded the colors on their VRF Pepsi Max version released today. Colors look like the Noob insert. What do you guys think?

    No, because they all have their flaws and deciding which flaws you’re okay with will decide which watch you should purchase. What’s I find as an acceptable flaw may not be to the next person.

    people buy this one for the better movmovement and the bright red insert. And a better price. Some buy this one and put the noob insert on it.
    If it were me I would get this one. I like the brighter red. But I won't because I am more of a Batman dude. And just blew the watch budget on a Daytona. And a bluesy. Ok ok and an AT.
    As someone who loves the Batman, and cannot decide which one to get.. which one would you say is the most aesthetically pleasing and closest to gen? TIA

    I was looking to buy this one too (VRF MAX). But there are so many things to consider. The noobs up to V11 have the timebomb, others have crappy movements. I honestly don't which one to pick. This is worst than buying a house lol.
    Anybody care to venture an opinion. Which is the current best gmt master II pepsi black face? The best maybe the wrong word. Which one would you buy for a specific reason and what is that reason?
    I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks

    You could try my new Molotow marker flooding technique (the MMFT, haha). You would need to do the whole insert though as it wouldn't match the other markers. Have a look here

    KJ2020 Paint Mod

    Speed bumps are hard to hide with any paint mod but join lines like yours can be made much less noticeable.

    Hello Mate, do you know which Jubilee bracelets ROF Pepsi or batman can take? I really want it with the jubilee bracelets, but it looks like there is no option for that. Thank you kindly.

    It's way too thick for that bro. It's possible it might be able to be wedged in to some bezels randomly and stay put but that's completely different from being pressure fitted.

    Here's some pics comparing the Noob Pepsi insert thickness to the ARF LN. The bottom pic shows the Noob insert sanded thinner so it would fit in an ARF bezel.

    Tbh mate it’s negligible and not spotted on the wrist. The noob insert is decent, no speed bumps, nice engravings and darker colours closer to mk2/3 gen pepsi’s. I only sold
    it as I preferred the lighter colours of the vrf and variations in different lighting.
