      I bought the blue 7750 version last summer, but unfortunately the movement failed. Then I bought the noob stainless clone, which works very well. I see they've issued a rather insipid orange version with the clone movement, but no blue... Pity, I could go for another of the blue ones if it had the clone movement.

        Noob is using a 4130 clone, it explains the price tag( other have a 7750 with seconds modified to 6 - this movement is far from being as reliable as the 4130 ), plus it allows to respect de the gen measurements.

          I have owned an A7750 Daytona (long time ago even before ARF was around). It is much thicker than Noob cloned 4130. It feels chunky and being a gen owner, to me is a dealer breaker.

          The price difference mainly due to the 4130 is still a noob exclusive, compared to the 7750 which is not. Both movements are reliable if you service it.

          To put into perspective how expensive the cloned 4130 is, it cost over 400+USD just to buy it on its own (one would say might be cheaper to buy the whole watch and sell the rest as parts)

          If you think the thickness and the feel of the A7750 is OK for you to compromise on, get that verison as I do think is more value for money (at least is easier to fix and repair an A7750).

          For me I'm skipping this noob version and building a more higher end one with better FC case set and more "correct" bezel font to DiW. Pls stay tuned.

              His name is good-price. He’s kind of shady because he was selling the case set here on rwi for a higher price and got exposed for profiteering under an alias. On reddit he claimed the cases weren’t available anywhere else and then we found out that anyone can get them.

                    i clocked that earlier with the emerald style daytona kits he was selling as saw a lot of them on chinese sellers wechat and thenshortly seen the arabic carbon black so become obvious he was reselling.

                    if that kit supposedly better quality than the noob one then?
