        Agreed bro. Some folks aren't that particular about these details though. Plenty of ARF Subs with boxy lugs are still being sold. Few people seem to mind. We all live in Fantasy Land after all.
        Yes Friend!

Also, I cannot see any bumps on the transitions.. I agree that case looks fatter but I don't think anyone will notice unless there's a gen next to it.. and I also think that on oyster bracelet it won't be noticeable at all. Crystal is ok and LEC not as visible as in other factories. 9 o'clock marker doesn't look crooked as in previous example. Minutes hand is obviously shorter and gmt hand slightly longer. What might bother me a bit is the rolex crown in between "swiss made" being bigger than gen. Still waiting for my QCs on both BLNR and BLRO and I hope both pieces are as good as this example!

                What matters is all mentioned flaws are good for some and bad for others. Each to his preference! Just remember that if something is slightly noticeable on QCs, it's not visible at all on the wrist unless you keep your hand close to your eyes being picky and OCD about every small detail!

                    A fat case I can mill, that doesn't bother me. It's a bit of work but no more than the noob daytona. I'd actually much rather that than one that's too thin, and like KJ2020 says, the meat is in the mid lug and that's actually the easiest part to work.

                    Every new gen I've seen in the wild I thought was fake because the insert looked brown so I'm gonna reserve judgement on that til I see it in the flesh.

                    The bigger issues for me are the hands and dodgy dial. Thankfully I have a gmf v3 dial and set of arf batman hands so at least I can swap the minute hand. The gmt hand isn't bad enough to bother me.

                    Shame it's not quite perfect. I'd thought about getting an ROF ages ago but lack of consistency put me off. Regardless none of the issues with the CF are deal breakers IMO. Haven't had my QC off Mary yet anyway.

                      VG87 100% man! And yes, the color is miles better the Noobs. I took screenshots of the video Lana sent me with different lighting angles for the insert. If only I could upload the video here I would for everyone to see.

                        I received my QC pics a few hours ago. Being that I just woke up a few minutes ago, I'll have some coffee and review the pics several times this morning before making a final decision. I sure wish that I had the discerning eye that some of you folks have. lol

                          You can post your QC's as they are educational right now... we've only seen 1 set of QC, would be useful to see another.
                          Just don't ask for "general feedback" irony is, you'll get it anyway

                            It'll be clearer side on IMO. But like I said in the previous post and like you alluded to earlier brother, it's an afternoon of fun (or a day of cutting my fingers to sheds hoping I didn't take too much off!)

                            I actually like working any case anyway. It never feels like a proper project unless you've got at least one over polished area!
