    Ok guys Ive been asked to do this by a member, so I figure Id give it a shot. Im no expert reviewer so hopefully the pics will do the talking. Big thanks to Dan (P4GTR) for taking the pics for me. Im not even going to say which is which.

    The point is, If I could do it over I wouldnt own the GEN, the rep is that good. I forgot to take a movmnt. and lume shot but the rep houses a sw200 with typical rep lume. Not that I would ever do it as we all know the number one rule, but if I ever had to wear a rep into an AD I'd wear this one in complete confidence. Now on to the pics!!!

    Although the rep is amazing, I think I know which is which... differences I spot are as follows (in no particular order):
    - bezel triangle
    - crown size
    - AR is very different
    - B logo
    - date window
    - bezel sticks

    Did I miss anything? Probably.

    That's exactly what I wrote in one of the wristies thread on RG....The SOH V2 feels like a gen.....Even to the people who I confess that I wear reps, I've told them it's a gen and they believe me....

    Great thread.....thanks. This is the one watch I've reserved a space in my box for.

    So damned hard to find a V2 though.

    Most flaws can only be spotted side by side.the only thing that really is different is the crown size and the swiss made. I only figured out the swiss made part last night after 3 weeks because I never stare at them both together.

    however!!!! no swiss made on a gen.

    the gens seems to come with and without the 'swiss made' sign.

    My fav watch all off, the tail of the s in superocean is different the rep is on the right in the bottom pics :) By Tor did an great thread on these and other breits.

    Thanks for the pics even owning one its very very hard to tell differences between rep and gen though I would like a gen xtal for mine.

    Holding these both in my hands, taking the pics, and looking at the HUGE pics before being resized.. I still find it hard to tell the difference.

    I don't see the need to swap crystals.. It looks pretty much identical in hand.

    Has the V2 been discontinued? I can't seem to find any.

    I wasn't even a fan of the mesh strap until I say that pic.
    They really need to make this watch again.

    Brilliant thread - I enjoyed reading that!

    And yes, I have an SOHv2 in blue and agree it feels and looks just like a gen. ;)

    You might have a super duper slight chance to score a blue one still. Try contacting Mary from watch international. I know I took the last black but the blue I heard may be around.
