    Thanks mate! subscribed for your update :) Hope for your brutally honest opinion about cannon pinion and how bad is a dial printing when compared to the gen:)

    Just ordered the Black bezel V5! Hope it turns out just as good as the red counterpart.

    I recieved My BB black a couple days ago and here is my thoughts on it compared to the gen I owned.

    The overall feeling is great, pretty much the same feeling as wearing the gen. Case, bezel, hour marks and hands are all pretty spot on. Even the bracelet is gen like except the sharp edges.

    Howewer; there is some minor flaws compared to the gen.

    * The crown and crown logo - it doesnt sit as tight to the case compared to the gen. The crown logo isnt as deep and crisp like gen.

    * The dial is and text is more plain compared to the deep and rich dial on the gen.

    * The lume is off. But hey! In daylight the color is creamy and correct as gen.

    Otherwise it is awesome. I can easily live with the flaws for 1/10 of the price of the gen :)
