    Im a total noob at Breitling and SOH is probably the only contemporary model i like but the most obvious tell for me is the swiss made on the dial or lack there of..

    other than that its not easy to tell witch is rep/gen for me even if there are slight unsimilarities i couldnt say witch is correct.. other than swiss 30 made that is..

    (i know this is old thread i just wnated to state it before i read to see if im correct)

    There are gen SOHs with and without the Swiss made on the dial. It depends of when they are made.

    It seems strange to me that they would intentionally leave 'swss made' off the dial.

    Loving my gen all day long but I'm impressed with the rep in the pics....another member just sold one mounted on a gen mesh and damn it looked close.

    Any difference in the way the movement feels when setting time/date as well as winding?

    I'm also very interested to know how good the blue is.
    I'm sure I'd be very happy with the black but, ideally, I'd like the blue if the colour is close to gen.

    Any views?

    Although the blue might look nice, you would get more wear out of a black dial. The blue would be somewhat limited to what you wear for the day. Everything on the rep was perfect even when setting the date/time the crown did not have that rep wobbly feel. It was nice and stiff like my gen.

    V2's are the best, they are not being made.

    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?
