Congrats! Looks gorgeous, I like this slight sunburst, don't have that on my Explorer. Would you mind reminding me what factory you chose?
I actually compared the sunburst with a Gen datejust that one of the directors in our office has, though it is 6 years old. I could absolutely not make out any difference whatsoever. Or maybe my eyes are untrained.

The GMF jubilee bracelet also has a sparkle to it under sunlight.

I have worn it to a mall and restaurants and already got compliments from waiters and waitresses.

Thank you. It has the A2824
Cheers. Did you have to get it serviced? Or are you planning on doing so?

I’m looking at the same movement for my first rep, mainly because general consensus is that it’s the best for those looking for an OOTB watch.

Naaa, just wear it and if something happens then you can get it serviced or swapped for an ETA or Sellita. Not worth servicing it, if you're lucky it'll run for years.

Looks like EWF and BPF are the only factories for the green palm dial. As you said, I doubt they'll ever nail the correct shade of green, but I'll probably end up buying one as it's such a fun dial.
