    Franken blusey (Finally)

    Just over a year in the making I managed to pick up a gen dial for my franken blusey at last! Sent off to Rollie at rwg for the works and a full service.

    Arf V3 base
    gen dial
    gen insert
    gen xtal aftermarket dw
    gen spiral and bridge
    gen auto board

          The lume plots are too smooth, gen lume has a texture almost like snow. This is the first thing I noticed so I don't think it's gen either. What was your source for it?

            The font at the bottom is not spaced out well on "= to 300" on Gen is more spaced.

            Also the tips of the C nearly touch on your dial officially part. It doesn't match the other C's... I'm not an expert on these dials but just something I noticed when comparing.

              Yea looking at a few more genuine pics it's not looking good. They all have the same C's and the space between = and 300 is too small. If you look at genuine the 3 starts right above R while yours starts at the H of "chronometer"

                From a reputable seller on eBay, all good feedback with other gen parts with authentication etc. It was refurbed, not sure if this is where the doubt is but not looking good anyway! You live and you learn eh!

                  What's the eBay store? I bought hands from a reputable seller in Florida from eBay and I'm not a fan.

                    What the hell is a 'refurbished' dial ?

                    It's fake.

                      It was a restored dial he picked up from a grey. The seller messaged me last night and stated that he sends all of his parts to his local Rolex dealer in Copenhagen (klarlund jewellery & watches) for an authenticity check before he sends them to be restored in Germany. He has offered a I’ll refund if I went to send it back.

                        I dont think that dial is gen. It doesn't look right and the color is wrong. I dont know what "restored" means but still doesnt look correct

                        Here is my gen 116613LB. It doesnt look like that at all.

                          In any case, a restored dial can't be considered gen.
                          To restore a dial you need to re-print it or re-color it.

                            I'm sorry about the dial, but it's a great watch nonetheless, wear it in good health
