Hello,

Little comparison i did today on a new build I'm doing, it's a CF insert in a stainless steel bezel vs genuine pepsi in white gold bezel.

Enjoy!

Thanks for this! I'm on the fence about the GMT's. I want one so bad. These don't look too bad, I've definitely seen worse.

Hi oascom , thanks for doing this comparison. It seems that the differences are more visible under strong natural light. If it's not too much to ask, any chance you'd be able to make a couple of pics under good sunlight? Thanks in advance

I think a useful comparison would be under UV light - that’s where you spot the main difference…

Night and day difference. Would love to see factories give that insert another attempt. Looks like a MK1?

Forget about this, the Clean does not shine like the gen under UV light we know that

If the color is accurate, this does not matter in my opinion. Well at the moment color isn't accurate either!
