    To me, it is the best looking BLNR so far, not sure about the feeling, but anyone who had noob BNLR v11 vs ARF and had gen on hand and could give better comparison, but this looks great to me and the blue difference, it's very small difference

        It feels cheap in your hand. Mainly due to bracelet. It’s nothing like a gen bracelet, I owned gen Batman for years. Arf is light, and sharp and tinny. The watch head itself is good if you replace Crystal and date wheel and the movement

          Currently replacing crystal, d/w, hands and movement but seriously considering getting another bracelet as I agree it’s the weakest point of this gem.

            Weren’t ARF daytona bracelets light years ahead ? Do they not have the same oyster bracelet for 126710BLNR ?

              I have just placed an order for one of these, could anybody point me in the direction of a member who could source and change the DW and bracelet?

                  the Dayton bracelets I got were very good quality. The bracelet of my Batman was not good at all. Sharp edges on the outside of the links which was easy to mod. But I had to take the whole bracelet appart to mod the inner edges. It looks to me they have a QC problem atm.

                    I guess not...my arf daytona has clasp code 7CD but batman is P3L.

                    And yes, daytona bracelet and clasp is light years ahead.

                    might as well source another arf daytona bracelet and replace it...


                    Edit: just noticed clasp code on arf LN are P3L as well but it's so much better than the one comes with BLNR...wtf

                      I must be one of the lucky one. My bracelet is really good and holds up really well next to my GEN

                        I’m thinking of putting a jubilee on it. Wondering if noobs will fit well or should try arf again

                          I agree the Arf bracelet is excellent quality compared to my Gen. Possibly a bad batch?

                            Changed the movement to VRF. The DW which comes from VRF is much better. Sitting in the middle. Blackhole on the crystal is good. I know, nothing beats gen crystal, but for the price it is ok.

                              Pretty sure a member done this! Noob jubilee bracelet from Pepsi on arf gmt with noob spring bars, believe arf spring bars didn’t fit correctly, and put the arf oyster on the Pepsi.

                                Bringing more pictures of the ARF BLRN against the GEN.




                                Pardon my poor photographing skills and the lighting (it's pitch dark outside).




                                I took the ARF bezel off to have it as close as possible to the real one ;-)

                                Gen on the right side
