    GMF Batman vs Gen Batman

    Quick comparison pictures showing gen 2016 BLNR (oyster bracelet) vs GMF (jubilee).

    Will share my thoughts later. For now here are some quick iPhone pictures.

    The rep CGs don’t look off in real life....of course if you compare side by side magnified pictures, you will notice the rep CG geometry is not 100% the same as gen. however, the rep CGs don’t look off or ugly (and my eyes are used to seeing gen).


    The rep cyclops on the other hand looks off from across the room. Bezel inserts are close enough in real life - nothing about the rep insert looks off to my eyes.

    For a second there I couldn't tell which was which as the watch moved. Beautiful!

    This is a great review and pushed me over the edge to order a Batgirl from jtime. I think I van live with the cyclops and the crystal.
    Great service to the community thanks a lot!

    In the second position of the crown you turn it clockwise and it changes the date, counter-clockwise moves the GMT hand.

    What I'm not sure in this case is whether the GMT hand jumps when set or just moves continuously, does anyone know about that?

    Crystal/Cyclops: the GMF offering requires a profS crystal IMO. I can’t live with any rep cyclops (ARF, noob, BP....all shit...some less shit but nevertheless still shit given that it’s 2019 and they still can’t get it right on the most desirable watches in the world)

    You can see from this picture that GMF cyclops is I’ve magnified (more than x2.5) but the gen cyclops is unmagnified (less than x2.5). It’s common to see under magnified gen cyclops.

    The GMF font is actually quite good. It looks off because the cyclops has crappy AR but the font itself is fine (there are various gen fonts, some are thick some are thin and I don’t keep track of all the different variants).
    Font print is slightly raised and glossy - not perfect but decent attempt IMO. I always swap in gen DW on all my Rolex reps.

    Cyclops black hole effect is not great:

    Gen cyclops looks really off here...that’s why I don’t complain too much about reps because gen’s are not perfect either.





    Sunlight: here’s a comparison picture in direct light. You really have to have both side by side to appreciate the difference.

    I really don’t see why people are advocating spray painting their bezels. This is one sure why of ruining the 3D depth effect found on stock rep inserts IMO:



    ICHS: basically impossible to notice in real life without holding the watch close to your eyes for an appreciable amount of time....unless you have paranoid rep forum member eyes and can spot reps from across the room:


    Bottom line:
    I like the dial and hour surrounds. I can’t wear ARF anymore due to the flat/pointy 12 marker and the ghost white lume. GMF lume is creamy like gen and hour marker surrounds are nicely curved. I would wear GMF with ProfS crystal. GMF hands are not as nice as ARF. Maybe I’ll ask my China partners to send me spare ARF hands to use on the GMF. The GMF bezel is good enough to my eyes (I’m talking about real life and not in zoomed in pictures).

    Given that gen costs £16k (essentially), this is a very nice way to enjoy the watch at a faction of gen price IMO.

    Hi there.. Just to add something here that might interest people. Last month i got my GEN 126710 BLNR a month ago and the font is more on the thinner side than thick. The 116710 DW font is thicker, its not the same DW. So The font in the DW of the GMF is very accurate with the GEN 126710. I understand that you are trying to make a comparison but like i said, the DW font thickness on the GMF is very accurate with what i have.
    Cheers and waiting for ARF to come up with something quick otherwise will have to get this GMF one. Ill be glad to compare when i get the REP, witch ironically is harder to get than my GEN. For now, i will upload a pic of the DW as soon as i can so you can compare, whenever PICR me lets me upload a freacking image without giving me error.

I mean I don’t want to spend this amount of money and end up with a broken movement 2 months later. If this is the case I’d rather let the GMT go and look into the sub instead (although I really love the batman)... what are your thoughts? Thanks in advance for your input
    Get the GMF Batman with incorrect hand stack. No one can tell any of these minor details at an arm's distance. And I mean no one.

    Yes, and the hands are stacked differently so at some point the hour hand will be covering the GMT hand. That would never happen in a genuine modern Rolex GMT.
