Looks very very nice indeed.
I saw XF also did the two tone california. I wanted that one sometime ago but was sold out. (V6f if not mistaking? ) I'm thinking to pull the trigger.

Would you guys say it's a super rep?

Yes, this is a super REP. However the bronze case is a steel & bronze mix-not 100% bronze as per GEN.

Hey John, wanted t clarify, which watch case are u referring to being the steel/bronze mix? This XF Bronze extra special ? Because on TD sites it’s stated as full bronze case, so just wanted to clarify haha thanks!

Hi Doc
GEN case is 100% bronze, XF is a bronze steel mix. It’s will not age same as GEN. It will look new for years.

Yes, I didn't know it would "patina" whatever the right word is but it's now much better than new!

great looking watch. Does the dial and hands seem more green then the gen? I'm comparing pictures with the gen and some gen pics show the dial green and others look white. Can't tell

I think the dial is pretty spot on. You can see in pic above it has different shades in different lights. However, the numerals are more green/lumed than gen from what I can tell hovering my watch outside the shop window of the AD ????
