    Wow I absolutely love the blue one with the mesh bracelet. A couple of questions from a noob. Did the mesh bracelet come with the rep? How much would a gen mesh bracelet cost? Are there any plans on releasing these V2s again? Are the V2s considered super reps?

    I just scored a blue SOH V2 this week, via M2M sale in response to my thread in Watches/Straps Wanted here on RWI. I paid what I expected to, but it is a fair amount higher than these went for when new. Still way less than a used Gen though. If you have one of these to sell or are looking to buy one via M2M, be mindful that they can command decent coin.

    Rep is so damn close to a gen in look and feel that if you can get a V2, wear it in good confidence. After owning 2 reps and now a genuine, the difference is so small you really have to think why you paid $$ for the gen :)

    I would say the bezel black color is more shiny on gen, AR is a bit better but not much, dial has more texture and caseback markings are deeper.

    Is it possible to chance the rep bezel with a gen one?

    Hi, You don´t need to look further, everybody wants this, it´s sold out for a loooong time. There is a copy available but it´s no good. Sometimes they appear on m2m sales but either very expensive or they go immediately. The Superocean Abyss 42 and 44 sold out too, but recently. The only still available is the SO Steelfish (different but also nice). Have fun around.

    This might answer a few questions for guys like me who love the SOH but haven't been able to score a V2. As other members have posted the V2 hss been out of production for an age and Noob, who I'm told by a couple of TDs made the original have no plans to bring it back, which is a real ballache as this is still a current model. The only model available is a V1 lookalike with the wrong 'p' and 'A' alignment and about 10 other tells. However, I thought I'd give a blue one a try on the rep mesh which isn't that good and only has minor adjustment at the clasp, so if your wrist is under 7.5" it won't fit. I put it on a Staib mesh, these are great for the money and good quality (gen mesh is c$750 but depends where you get it from as always). I also swapped out the bezel insert (tried removing the bezel screws and the bezel but this is virtually impossible unless you have a specific bezel removal tool and know how to use it!) as this is nasty on the this rep and got one from Lucy at truetime. I think the one she sent was from the SOHC and is pretty decent. I also took the chance it would fit and it slotted in perfectly and really makes a difference.

    Anyway this is about the best you're going to get and even though the rep isn't great it still is a really pretty combo.

    Hi guys. I am new in here and was just after a little help. Basically I can't post a new thread or upload photos.

    I recently purchased a Breitling superocean 44 which I was led to believe was genuine but I am now having doubts. Would anyone be happy to pm me their email address so I can send some photos for them to look at?

    Thanks in advance and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Adrian
