JF 16610 No Rehaut Review

Recommended Posts

I also believe the date disc and crystal both require mandatory upgrade to gen because the date disc font is still terrible and the crystal's LEC is way too visible IMO

yeah. Superluminova 16613 dial. It took me a year to find one in decent condition with a decent price.

maybe its the pic angle, but that triangle looks way way  off. 

 

can you post side by side pics of the wokky and non wokky rehaut please 

Never noticed this before, but since  I read this post, I haven't seen a pic of the LN dial that didn't seem to have a misaligned triangle. I've recently received QC pics and wouldn't you know, the triangle seems off. Doesn't seem to be the case with the maxi dial.  Are there any owners who can post some pics of their LN dials?

Yes, very nice and a perfectly aligned marker.

 I apologize for not being more clear. I was referring to the JF LN dial.

You couldn't find somebody in the US to change the date wheel ? I don't think you looked very hard, or in the right places.

Correct. I had one US modder do some work for me last year, with great results, then he dropped off the grid.

Second modder gave me the run-around and tried to nickle and dime me after having received the watch. Felt as though he was holding the hostage, idk, weird experience and won’t be doing that again. 

Have yet to find another.

I got a JF16610 from puretime. It’s been back TWICE because the SH3135 movement keep stopping after a few days. Twice! And same problem still exists. Now I’ve given up and thrown it into a drawer. Not happy at all with their warranty service. I even told them I would pay for them to have it properly torn down and serviced correctly. But apparently nothing was done again and they just sent it back to me. Some day I’ll get some gen parts and have the movement rebuilt properly.

Go to a local watchsmith or a forum recommended guy. They'll sort it. It's just bad luck dude, sometimes you get a lemon.

Just gotten a JF no rehaut LV. I know that it is not period correct, but I still went to install Prof black hole xtal and a gen dw. Amazing results (if you don't mind it being period incorrect). 054038a284cdea6cbfee7e35c40bf2aa.jpg

Beautiful watch. When you say not period correct, are you referring to the lack of rehaut engraving? My understanding is that this was introduced around 2007, so gen LV Subs are available with and without engraving?

The LV’s with no engravement have no LEC-AR-black hole effect crystal. So a non engraved LV with a new type of crystal is not periodic correct, but still some gen owners do that kind of mode. So, it’s not a bad thing, and gen owners do not give a shit about it. Only when it comes to reps we become anal. Speaking for myself either way i would prefer a periodic correct 5digit  rolie.
