hands center view

Although the factory has claimed that they have improved this problem but we can also check that not perfect solved. (Clean as well) In fact, even the gen chronograph seconds hand is also disaligned with the triangle at 12H on the ceramic bezel, what we should really care about is the five-clawed logo on the dial and the 60-minute markers are aligned in a straight line. Of course it can only be noticed through the macro photos, we can hardly discover through eye sight. For me it doesn’t make big sense, and no need to be so harsh. But in deed, you can also ask TD to choose the better alignment If you really care about this.

12 location engraving

Color of V2’s engraving is lighter than V1. It confused me since V1 is already good enough, have no idea why the factory did this, maybe only because of the QC when print the dial. Hope so…

V2 is lighter than V1, V1 is better.

In addition, we can see the sticker seems thinner, let’s see some comparison photos

V1 is better then V2 in terms of the whole dial engraving and stickers.

As we all known V1 hands are too long, good thing is V2 has shortened. Although not perfect enough, it’s in the good range now.

However they also hasn’t solve the problem of dial numbers too clear to the edge of inner side.

Side view of subdial circles

Subdial of V1 is too fat, V2 has been thinner but seems only deduct one circle of the CD pattern.
The original notch for subdial is not smaller so results in the outer ring will be exposed for some. Clean also has this problem. It can hardly be fixed as perfect as Gen one to suitable totally, maybe too strict for them, haha

Side view of Sel

It’s true that V2 head pins and lug have been made to like Golden Triangle Arc, as the factory claimed. But the upper edge location (red noted) is not sunk enough. A thing to be commended is they made the enough thickness of the position of sunken edge. (blue noted)
Overall the sel change is great.

Well, this is our whole post, these comparison details are the ones that most people will be concerned about,

but for the other details which we haven’t released since no obvious changes! After all, in the macro view, there will inevitably be deviations from different batches of the factory, and this is within the range of acceptance!

It’s a very good thing for us to see that the factory keeps updating and improving, it means replica are going to the right way. But Update could improve things, bad things might be incurred as well.

I believe most of you are willing to spend the dollar of your wallets for the right thing. All to do is to wait for the satisfied replica to show up, maybe not perfect but it’s ok to accept the disadvantages and you think it’s the best. So there is no problems about which one we choose, just for whether you are willing to pay for it or not. Haha.

If there is anything wrong with the post, please correct me. Thank you for viewing and welcome your comments!

Note: The pictures are for reference only, some of the details may vary slightly due to the light or angle when shooting, the BT V1 sample is a bit crooked at the six o’clock square scale, no need to care about this, because the other goods are not a problem.

There is no perfect REP, only the one you love the most, and although there are regrets, we are always on the way to perfection.
