          Well maybe we need some reality but:

          1. This is a replica watch forum. Not sure how does that marry with reality...

          2. People tend to forget that the watches they comment on are other user’s watches. Watches that they spent their well earned money and watches they enjoy enough to post a pictorial. A bit of kindness goes a long way. Maybe the gold colour is not 100% accurate, I’m no expert in precious metals, but I am 100% sure there are better ways to express that opinion.

            Yeah course, although I had to ask Nik as I hadn’t got a clue myself lol

            Not sure on the base watch, I bought it M2M from [mention]Stuvetgee [/mention] was just a 21j but as I understand correct shape case / bezel etc, long time out of production now

            Sent it to Nik, who replated it, and installed a serviced swiss eta 2834-2 modded with H4 wheels, raffles hands and overlays, and to finish off a gen dial. The strap is Italian handmade.

            I have since found a gen crown which may or may not get fitted

            May get a raffles bracelet should I want to wear it on a bracelet, but I quite like these 36mm on a leather strap

              I would MUCH rather have someone point out their honest thoughts and opinions rather than worry about hurting my ego/feelings and lying to me.... It's a review and he did a great job with the pictures but it's also a replica that has its pros and cons and unfortunately the colour of the replica is the biggest con.

                Thanks to all for the comments and thoughts.
                Yes it a REP of course, and as every rep watch has faults. Some of them have a lot and some only minor things.

                To be honest, the gold color is not bad. Please take also a look with the GEN 93153 bracelet gold color (18K)
                The gold color matches very good the GEN 18K gold color. In different angles, the polished and brushed surface can vary, but also on GEN 18K you have this effect.

                I was skeptical when I had the watch the first time in my hands.
                My biggest concerns were: dial, bracelet, color
                Dial = very good when you are not picturing macros
                Bracelt = as wirtten: rattly but after a cream/foam bath it is much better
                Color = compared with the GEN twotone 93153 bracelet = very accurate

                Regarding color and color tone_
                If I would have better photography skills, I would be able to proof this.
                When I compare 1:1 as written above - it is very accurate and well matched.

                  Hello members,

                  it was a nice review with this watch and I have to say - it is really the best 6-digit REP ever! (6-digit with 36mm diameter!)
                  The gold color matches perfect with the Rolex gold color from my 16613/93153 bracelet. So very well done by GMF.

                  I am now selling / offering the watch here at RWI in the sales section. Only reason is: I will go 5-digit. I am much more "attired)" in the older models.


                  If you like 6-digit Day-Date's, this is the best you can get and looks accurate !

                  Here are some brand new pics from yesterday:

                      May I ask, which 5-digit are you looking for? I haven’t seen many decent 5-digit Day Date or Datejust lately (and I love the silhouette of the old 5-digit models too).

                        It is no OOTB …. Cause such was never available
                        It is a build from separately sourced parts (lots of GEN parts) and a complete reshaped case and the head+bracelet also reworked and than gold plated.

                        I can give more details, when I have it in my hands
