Does anyone have the silent updated version yet?
I wonder if they also did something about the bezel grease situation

This grease issue won't be resolved unless CF will really dig into the actual problem of their bezel washer and click spring

I know what you mean.
But you can see the reflection of the Minute Markers, so V2.

its a "v2" with longer minute hand that touches the indices, but not the latest batch that has the improved crystal. those are still in small numbers as there are many older stocks being held by suppliers and dealers.

How did you identify the crystal as new batch or not?

Yours is milky.

Here's a picture of a non milky crystal edge for a sample.

That’s my gen bro.

Lol.


Goes to show you can’t tell milky or non milky from pics (well I certainly can’t)..... or Rolex is buying parts from CF.

Here’s another pic (gen):

Rofl, got me nice bro. But that's just crazy. I guess it then also depends on angle and lightning conditions. Still find it weird. Sure you gen is gen?...

Just kidding ;-)

Haha. Think Rolex scammed me. You’re right tho, it depends on light and angle. In real life gen ain’t milky - has a nice bling to the crystal rim.

These new v2 rep crystals look great tho.
