    But to reject a watch like this only due to the "different 3's" in the serial number ...well, that's some upper level shit. Nothing personal, just thinking out loud. Imagine you are at a ball at a prime minister's private residence, and some random heir of a billionaire family just shows up to check your watch with a loupe between two afternoon tea servings, and he suddenly starts screaming in front of everyone: "The 3's are different! The 3's are different! I knew it! Guards, get rid of him!"

    That's my biggest f..ing nightmare of all.
    friggin hilarious. Thanks for the morning laugh…

      Is it really ‘bullshit’? Or am I just highlighting a flaw that I’ve seen? I thought the purpose of this discussion was to analyse the watch and discuss potential early flaws (which always do exist in these replicas). If you want to start calling people out for raising a genuine discussion point then it defeats the purpose and puts other members away from raising their points - which are equally as valid as yours.

        Yes, it is bullshit.
        This rep is freakin great. A work of art. The different 3's discussion makes me want to puke.

          The officially certified flaw can’t be unseen now for me.

            Actually I just looked and the gen is identical..... weird.

              i for one appreciate your keen eye

              i do have some reservations about red-lighting an otherwise perfectly fine watch, given that some of these flaws (like the 3) seem present in the entire release, but i agree that the half the point of discussing the release is to find and share these sorts of things

                There have long been numerous font size and spacing anomalies on gens in the bottom two lines of text. Rep makers are just copying gens exactly when you see this on a rep dial.



                Some more examples

                The first three words start with an oversized letter, the fourth word does not.

                Most of the E and L letters are taller.

                The spacing is uneven in the last 4 letters of CHRONOMETER.

                The C in OFFICIALLY is too tall

                The F and D in CERTIFIED are too tall (along with the previously mention Es)

                Why did Rolex do this? Who knows. Some have speculated it to be an anti-counterfeiting measure. There are some variations in these anomalies and I've seen them not present on some gen dials. Also they are more commonly found on Sports model (now called Professional model) dials.

                          RIP wallet! I wanted a good rep for this model since it was released. Will compliment my RF GMT rep collection!

                            Seems like the AR coating on the cyclops is not so good

                              I'm sitting wearing my genuine BLRO looking at these pics on the screen and I can tell they all they just don't look right. These are some sort of Submariner/GMT hybrid thing, neither of them right either. the bezel lip is missing, it's very noticeable, it's not a Pepsi without it and the elegant profile of the case against the jubilee is lost with the fat Submariner lugs. This is a Submariner case with a red blue insert and gmt dial I see above.

                              Genuine for reference..

                                I honestly can't spot the difference. Maybe the lugs are very slightly off, but there's no way I'm ever spotting that without a gen and a ruler haha.

                                What is a bezel lip? Can't see whats missing there either
