Review: Heisenberg Factory V3 FC Diver (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

I've posted this next door but want to share it here as well ;-)

WARNING!!!

PIC HEAVY REVIEW!!!

 

This is my official review of the new FC V3 Diver by the (what I now like to call) "Heisenberg Factory." These are the good folks who brought us the new V5 Diver, the Very Cool RG Diver (that I reviewed last month), and the upcoming Ceramic Diver.

 

To say that this watch is badass doesn't even begin to do it full justice, in my opinion. Like any rep, there are always going to be little things we may find or obsess about, and this one leaves very little to dwell upon.

 

Overview:

Let's start with the case. The Forged Carbon is perfect on mine. It gives a nice marble pattern that completely changes based on the light. The crystal has great AR and the cyclops/date are easy to read with little to no glare. The fit and finish is solid and feels gen like. Functions are perfect. Crown action is great. It is solid and light. Now... If you are like me, and used to the ss diver or standard heavy ROOs, this is extremely light by comparison. Don't let the lightness fool you, this watch is a beast!

 

At this point, you have probably already scrolled onto the pics, so let me put a cork in it and proceed with the show...

Summary:

 

  • Great Fit, Feel, and Finish
  • Crystal: Good AR - Would be even better with Double (but damn good)
  • Cyclops: definitely double AR - Easy to read date - little to no glare
  • FC Pattern: Awesome
  • Strap: Nice texture, comfortable, deep engraving
  • Buckle: Very good titanium and bead blasted
  • Crown: Turns and engages perfectly
  • Lume: even and bright!
  • Function: Just right! :-)

Conclusion

 

The Heisenberg Factory knocked it out of the park and this is a TOP Rep to own. If you love APs and don't have this in the box, you are nuts!

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking!
