    Have to disagree with you there. The dial is absolute rubbish - just like the ZF BB58 black... from the pics that fellow members have posted thus far, it’s obvious that the dial is flat and not textured. It looks like what they have done is add some metallic gloss to the paint to give a “flakey”, texture-like appearance. However, I’m very disappointed to say this is far from gen. It needs a gen dial at this point to be perfect.
    Absolute rubbish??? Lol

      It’s never gonna be close to gen quality when you see tudors factory setup!

      It’s a good try to my eyes and think they’ve used the grime from factory floors to add some texture to the dial which has inadvertently made it go different colours in different lighting conditions which I quite like. (Looked a bit green this morning in overcast light !)

      Feels more special than a Seiko or random / sterile homage

          I'm not sure "absolute rubbish" is appropriate, but I also don't think super zoomed in macro shots is the best way to compare dials. Side by side shots from wrist distance seems to be a good way to capture the differences. See RepJunkie's photos from his comparison below (gen on right; ZZF v2 on left):

            For 1/10th of the price, I think the dial is just something you have to live with, not a deal breaker for me...

              Black BB58: Who cares about the dial texture when the hour markers and hands are so much whiter than the gen.

              Blue rep at least doesnt have this problem.
              There could be a small difference in the dial texture, but certainly not noticeable on the wrist.

                Hey bud, sorry - just got your PM. The tag never got picked up by the forum.

                It looks good. I think the discussion on if the blue is right or not is redundant as the gen changes so much. If light hits it oblique, its blue, if light is coming from a shallow angle, its more black.

                Dial texture is similarly not a good discussion. What defines the dial is how it behaves in light. It can be matt or satin. It doesn’t matter what the texture is if the effect in light is wrong.

                I can see the case and bracelet dont look as refined / smooth on the rep, but again - hard to be sure in a photograph.

                      Had the exact same problem with my original BB58 - was unable to figure out a solution, interested if anyone else has figured something out as well.

                        Here's a side-by-side photo with the genuine watch from Revolper 's sales listing (LINK):

                          The pearl looks very different. Nicer on the rep tbh.
                          Just trying to earn as much in my life as Tete earns in a single month.

                            Same issue with the standard zf then lume whiter on hands than on hour markers

                              Agree. Personally I prefer the darker blue of the rep dial too

                                Yes, sadly the different lume color /hands/markers is quite regular. The pearl is different indeed, but looks really good on the rep.
                                I should get mine next week, can't wait to try it.
