    ARF Batman GMT 116710 BLNR photo review

    We’ve had the ARF LN, so now it’s all It’s all about the coveted Batman insert. We were told ARF wouldn’t release it until the bi-color ceramic insert was right. It took forever, but I’d say they nailed it. The blue color on the 24-hour hand and the ceramic insert look correct.

    We saw some variance on some QC pics on the 18 split differing slightly from the final sample, but most look correct. The 18 split is definitely more consistent than Noob’s otherwise excellent Pepsi bezel which has been inconsistent at 18. I see no seams, joints, speed bumps or white lines on the 6 and 18 transition.

    Regarding the “thin 2” it’s just glare and reflection on the black bezel portion. Without glare, the 2, 20 and 22 are the same thickness as the blue 12. I think we can put that one to rest.

    With the Batman phase complete, we look forward to the ARF Pepsi

    Thank you for your review, beautiful watch and pictures!

    ARF is being lazy as fuck, they took 1 year to make this insert, they will take 1 more year to make the pepsi insert. YIKES

        I had the LN and it was very close to gen, also, it doesn't really "click" for the gmt models, it almost "slides" into place when you turn the bezel

            Thanks. Like mari115 said, the GMT doesn’t click like the Sub. It has 24 smooth notches. The ARF GMT has almost no play and nice firm clear notches when turning. Also the bezel sits flush with the case..

                          Jeezus, that's one of the most anticipated correct bezel rep ever, do we finaly have one decent BLNR?

                          What about the movement?

                          Thank you for these shots.

                            Man yours looks great! The transition line on mine is worse than yours but this insert is so close to gen! Can't wait to get mine (damn you canadapost)!
