    Look below and you will see the V2 & V3 Slate dial Breitling Skyland on my wrist..

    People who are scared away by the "lume dot" issue.. dont worry and dont hesitate to buy one of these. They are amazing!

    Factory #1 produced Skyland V1, but there was a dial problem (Lume dot issue)
    Factory #2 produced Skyland V2, there were no problems and they are still sold today.
    Factory #1 produced Skyland V3, they fixed the dial problem (Lume dot issue)

    As for the Skyland Blacksteel.....,

    Factory #1 produced the V1 Blacksteel, the color of the steel is not great, it's too dark and not close to the genuine.
    Factory #2 produced the V2 Blacksteel, the color of the steel is much closer to the genuine.

    Nice, would be gorgeous with a black rubber strap.

    No I have no idea what to buy for my next watch; This, a PAM, UPO or Milgauss....

    I like the darker red "Automatic" on the V2, some people say that the V1/3 dial is crisper (the printing) than the V2 but I do not see it.
    As you can see in the picture.. the lume dot is pretty much a non issue. They both weigh close to the same... Bracelet is good, clasp seemed a little better on the bracelet of the V1/3 than the V2 but that could simply be the slight variations that we see even in the same series of watches... each one can be slightly different.

    The V3 is a steel imo.. I am considering getting the blue dial one just for the hell of it..

    The purpose of me doing this is because some people read the forums,, hear of the differences.. They think the issues are BIG issues... and this serves as a perfect example of not sweating the small stuff..

    V3 for the price all the way!!

    Another thing I just noticed (it may have been noticed before?? ) the numbers engraved on the bezel on the V2 are too skinny when compared to the genuine,, the V1/3 engravings are more true to the gen. I always find it very helpful when comparing the engravings to look at all the 5's on the bezel... this is where it will be more noticeable.

    The pics look great. I am really looking forward to getting the V3 I ordered from you. Hopefully Canada Customs won't be too slow.

    Pretty much what I figured. I just cant tell the difference between the V1 and V3 anymore. I think I'll be contacting you about a blue dial V3 very soon ;)

    The pearl on the V3 looks yellowish

    Hey D4M, is that my Grey V3 on your wrist??? If it is, it's beautiful and you were most welcome in using it in the photo shoot.
    It has gotten it's 15 minutes of fame. Ha, Ha, I can't wait to strap that baby on.

    If you have not done Business with D4M yet your truly missing out on a very pleasurable buying experience.
    P.S. You will also save a few bucks along the way!!

    Re: Breitling Skyland V3 / V2 Comparison Photo Side by Side!

    I have received a couple of questions recently about the difference between the V2 and the V3.

    Figured I'd bump this thread. Heck,, might make it a sticky as I am sure many want to know.

    Side by Side,, does not get any better than this..

    Just a quick note.

    I recommend the V3 over the V2, The V2 has the same movement in it that the Super Avenger does. I issued a warning about these two watches many months ago (fakemaster as well) talking about how these movements have been failing over and over again. The V3 DOES NOT have the same movement (yes.. it's a 7750) but not the same maker. The V3 is also made by a different maker than the V2 and is simply an upgrade from the V1 where the #3 lume dot was really messed up.

    V1 = Maker A (lume dot messed up)
    V2 = Maker B (movement issues)
    V3 = Maker A (lume dot fixed / better)

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the side by side comparison D4M. Some poeple like the fact that the V2 has longer chrono pushers but to me they look a little too long. The V3 is incredible value + no movement issues. It's a winner in my book.

    I've sold about 40 of these V3's ,, never had anyone tell me of any screw problems.. so likely things are good.
    if you have a concern, you could use loctite on them

    I have a V3 SA (skyland avenger) with an SS bracelet. It has misaligned lume dots, however imho that's a small compromise for an amazing rep.

    Re: Breitling Skyland V3 / V2 Comparison Photo Side by Side!

    I got my watch on the 24th of August and I ordered it on the 12th of august. So the postage time was very quick. The watch looks great but they ran out of SS bracelets so I recieved it with the black rubber strap and they are sending me the SS bracelet when it comes in.

    Unfortunately it did not take very long for me to have to send the watch back. It appears the second hand was not correctly pressed and when the reset button is pushed it would not position itself to 12. The second hand then became so bad it actually came off its line and crashed into the minute hand. Apparently this is a common problem with replicas?

    I emailed Greg (daytona4me) and told him of the issue and he said it was a common problem. He then instructed me to send it back to his supplier in China and he has picked up the postage bill.

    I think they are just going to repress the second hand and reset it so it goes back to 12. Just want to say that I am very very happy with Greg's service so far. I have sent the watch back and will keep you all informed. I can't wait to do a write up with detailed pictures of the watch. Unfortunately I now probably need to wait another 2 - 3 weeks for the watch. It just sucks because this is the first replica I have ever bought.

    But Greg has been a great guy to deal with and I highly recommend going through him when buying any watch.

    The number 1 on the bezel is inaccurate on the V3 version if you compare with GEN. I changed from V3 to V2 because of this. It bothered me to much. The number is suppose to have a sharp angle on the top. Not filled out like on V3.

    Just for information.

    Great buys both of them anyhow.

    Agreed, i haven't purchased from some of the trusted dealers because of the price, just can't swing the high cost of the watch right now. :cry:
