    Ahhh the V's ....a very confusing road.....


    please keep in mind that this does not cover the canal street versions, only the better versions

    Heres how they go chronologically, but bear in mind some dealers have different names for these models


    NoobV1 Very poor , built on a regular seadweller chassis, with an added rehaut and a metal bezel index (V6 on the left, v1 on the right)[​IMG]



    Noobv2 First true to size dssd..... ceramic insert, bad case shape, very bad insert[​IMG]





    Noobv3 better case shape, better insert, bad 10 on insert[​IMG]






    noobv4 same case as v3 , improved dial, still bad 10 on insert[​IMG]




    eurotimez v5 perfect case shape, nice dial, great insert flat top triangle[​IMG]





    noobv6 perfect case , good dial but still had thick marker surrounds, round top triangle 10 corrected on insert[​IMG]




    Unknown factory V7 (actually made by 42PO factory we found out later) Great case shape, nice looking insert, but terrible engraving , great dial with thin marker surrounds (this is the Trevor DSSD) crown guards were not so great[​IMG]






    noobv6.3 its a noobv6 with improved crown guards[​IMG]





    BP DSSD seems to be using alot of the same parts as the 42PO dssd, has a way better insert and was the first to come with a glass covered pearl[​IMG]


    BP V2 Dssd same as the previous version, but the dial fonts were improved alot., also went from blue lume to aqua at this point.
    [​IMG]



    Noob 2014 model or v7 Dssd (or v7v1 now that the v2 was released).
    pretty much a way hotrodded v6.3 , new dial, bezel assy, new insert with the perfect triangle on it. but the font color is white on the insert. first noob to have a glass covered pearl and correct aqua lume. gen bezel assy will fit with minor mods[​IMG]





    Noob 2015 model or v7v2 or v7.5
    same as the previous version, but with silver fonts in the bezel insert. it should be noted that the bezel assembly will not swap with a gen assy like the one in the previous version, as some dimesions were changed[​IMG]




    NoobV6S the very latest noob DSSD, 2 different cases, one for the SA3135, with the correct stem height, and the one for the 2836.[​IMG]






    This one is made by noob and their new partner . Supposed to be better that everything made before, but in all honesty, i cant tell the difference between the v6s and the v7v2 by looking yet



    V6s with 2836-2

    [​IMG]



    looks alot like the 2015 version to me , even the old dial fonts on this one, unlike the 3135 version

    I ordered one from Ryan - but he told me it was only available with the 3135.
    I went for that one bearing in mind that at some point I might have to go for a Yuki movement.
    Best regards

    I'm reading the post sat here thinking I can get the (V7V2) with the 2836 movement and Raddave says he can't tell the difference, so I shouldn't be able to. I need to order one soon as I'm getting impatient lol!

    Yeah the funny thing is the V1 was actually released before the gen, so no one really knew what it looked like !!

    The V2 was a mad scramble to make it more real...

    Little bit of trivia about the Eurotimez DSSD : Keep in mind i wrote this in 2013, so things have changed...

    "Yes, this was "it" back in the day, the Eurotimez DSSD v5. IMO the best DSSD rep ever made.
    To the best of my knowledge, Chris from Eurotimez, had contracted his own assemblers to make these for him and was distributed by Eurotimez.com, so i guess Eurotimez was the "maker".

    From what i understand, there was a time when alot of his QC people were missing and they ended up shipping a lot of bad dssds, bad dials, bad pearls, and bad clasps.

    The QC problems became overwhelming, i guess, and Eurotimez just faded off into the darkness. Some claim he still owed people money/watches, and just vanished.


    After the Eurotimez's demise, the v7 DSSD was released, bearing striking resemblance to the ETv5. Had the thin hour marker rims, flat top triangle, but the bezel insert was not quite as nice as the ET version.
    This is the one with the "Trevor" bezel insert.

    This v7 DSSD was introduced in 2011, from "unknown maker" , but was actually made by the 42PO factory. "

    Noob 2014 V1 is the most accurate DSSD with MK 1 dial and the font color on the bezel is indeed whitish/beige as compared with a gen that I've seen previously. The current V6S on MK II dial is also the most accurate, including D-Blue one.

    I saw some here do have pics of their D-Blue V6S. I also saw the pics at noobwatch too. The V6S seems better as stated, they also have functional HEVs.

    In addition, Noob 2015 V2's OGEV fonts are slightly thinner than 2014 V1 which till now I still don't know why Noob is taking a step back from accuracy.

    If I recall correctly the dssd can not take a gen crystal and the height is a bit taller than gen.
    Or am I confusing this with the sd4k?

    Other than the OGEV font being thicker and the marker surrounds looking like two rings(round ones, not 12,9,6), I don't see much difference between this one and the last version.

    What is mine?supposed to be the one before the v6s.
