A true beauty, received my very first PPF Nautilus just a week ago and have to say I am completely in love with how they sit on the wrist. Definitely considering going the hybrid route too.

Definitely consider the following hybrid: modded PF case + 3KF movement + PPF or Buff dial. PF bracelet a bit more robust than that of PPF but imho it's acceptable after re-finishing. PF bezel is closest to the gen and it does aesthetically matter imho.

Sorry but peterchao but I would get legend to relume the markers as the lume job is not done properly. Some are the lume are sticking out of the markers

My comments probably will be met with some disdain as legend is well respected but if you are paying for a lume job you shouldn’t accept this.

I only say things as it is so don’t get me wrong it’s a nicely modded piece and would be better if the lume can be fixed.

Does the color of gen match perfectly in any lighting conditions? Some stated this wasn't the case for blue dial gens. What about the white dial?

I think white dial are less obvious. Because obviously there are less shades of white then blue.

The difference my friend is that the guys at AMF do not have to take the blindfolds off during the entire modding process :hehehe:

Sent you a PM. I’d love for you to do a Tiffany 3KF for me.

Is the updated, 3KF 5711 V2 now better than the PF base?

Imho the brushed part of the 3KF v2 bezel is still wide but this rep with a Buff or a PPFv4 dial could be a NWBIG watch even if the gen was significantly cheaper.

Wich case is more gen spec? Not only about bezel brushed part but I mean all case...profiles, cg, thikness, caseback...

Thanks

The white dial hits different. Very inconspicuous!
Enjoy this build sir! It’s a certified beauty!
