    i really do not see much difference in the quality of construction and feel between my gen Hulk bracelet and V7 Dblue. perhaps you should dry lube your bracelet to make it not as rattely and softer. my Hulk's bracelet was also little rattely when spanking new.

    Looks like Noob is going to be making 904 steel Rolex reps very soon and they are starting with DSSD and subs. Excited!

    If you've ever held a gen, you can clearly tell the difference in quality of the steel especially the bracelet. This is def a step in the right direction.

    ya, I've held a few, and own, thanks. the "difference" you're talking about is so minute it only matters to people like you who obsess just a little too much. the makers will be happy to take your money.

    Hehe then why not buy a canal street rep if one doesn't care about getting as close to gen? Aren't we all here to get as close to gen as possible? To each his own, but I can def tell the difference...

    I actually could care less about Rolex watches because they are too small to me, I just think it's great for the rep game as is it closer to gen. Most will be happy about this. You can be smart and save your money since it's minute to you.

    I've said this a million times now 904 steel compared to 316 you cant tell both to the naked eye and or to hold. The reps are a little rougher I admit that but its the finishing of the steel nothing to do with the steel itself. I've got a heaps of reps and gen Rolex's in front of me right now both in SS and Yellow Gold and Rose Gold and Twin Tone. The only considerable difference is any precious metal.

    I'll tell you one thing for sure, if they go 904 the scammers will rejoice. The only way to tell my franken from the real thing is to do a metal test.

    I agree with you that the finishing of the gen and rep Rolex bracelets are different. But with enough effort, a grade 316L/F bracelet can be refinished as well as a 904L one.

    Even if the rep makers start using 904L steel, the process they use to finish the bracelets or case surfaces would not be as refined as the one used by Rolex. The material plays a small part in the feel and finish of the bracelet but the machining and polishing is a much greater part of the process in achieving the ideal visual finish and hand-feel of the watch.


    I tread softly along the fine line separating raving insanity and lucid moments of ingenuity. The issue is I've no idea which is which mostly.

    Is it? The triangle on the insert looks way different to me. Also, the description mentions the v5.
