Whats this GB Trademarked Molotow MoFo Paint Mod you talk about? 

Ahhhhh, trade secret ;)

Basically you send me your watch along with $50 and I make magic happen.

I also accept original porn in lieu of payment.

Or you could just read this:

 

Send porn.

I'm sure that this new version is better in one or more ways...

I respectfully disagree (and I think you were probably just trying to be polite), but I'm not convinced this version is any better in terms of the bezel insert at least. The bracelet is better though.

It's a good sub. If I didn't have a sub c, this is the one is buy, but I wouldn't bother 'upgrading' from a v7 unless you've got money to burn.

I've never seen a paint mod that I would have been happy with and there's no way I was going to pay $200 to get some extra brightness in tiny numbers on a Rep so in the end I lost interest and sold it.

Agree 1000% with this. Painting the markers looks ok at arms length. If you are an OCD freak or take close up pics of your watches - you wont be happy. Never seen a paint mod that is any good.  I wont be buying another Noob sub without the paint on the bezel fixed.

Oh man, I'm so glad I'm not that OCD. I think if I was, I'd just have to buy Gens. I totally get that paint mods aren't perfect and they are not for everyone, but they're not that bad:

At the best thing is they're cheap! I think the Molotow pen cost me about £3 delivered and I've modded five watches with it (and still have about 90% of the paint left). And it's so quick - a five minute job. I love paint mods!

The Molotow mod is ... way better than the Sharpie mod.

Dude. Dooood. You just referenced my mod without mentioning my Trademark or seeking licensing permission in advance. You owe me $10.

That five minute paint mod is so good, it's made all the difference, turning this from a so-so watch into 'The Best Sub'™️

I'm loving it now!

This is a fairly low light pic - some ceiling lights, but dimmed.

And the bracelet is great too, very silky smooth. It would be nice to know if it really is 904L, but even if it's not, is a cracking bracelet.

Looks really good! But don't forget about the pics in the daylight :p

Good to hear that the bracelet feels good. I recently bought a Breitling and however the rep was briliant... The bracelet felt really cheap. 

So congrats and I'm waiting for the pics :)

Forget about the v8 - just got my Molotov pen - have to say I'm pretty f*ck!ng blown away about how good this is.

@GingerBubba sincerily, thanks dude - the best PPM to date.

Top tip on getting the paint nice, flat and even is to dry brush it right away with a real soft paintbrush - get the ink nice and flat in the engravings so theres no build up of ink.

You're very welcome - and I'm very grateful to you too, adding to the mod with your tip. Aren't fora great!

I reckon I should license my technique to Noob because they sure as fuck could do with the help!!!
