@donkacper which V4+ and price paid? 

As mentioned it gets a bit sketchy on QC after V3. Very few 100% v4 exist and I’m pretty sure they are mostly parts bin watches after that. 

while both your watches have noob movements, your Inca block is brushed, has an issue with bridge markings and finish slightly rougher than the XF. 

Again don’t worry it’s perfect on the wrist no one could call it out.

Not worried at all :)

Sead had it in UK stock as "pam 111 noob v11, 309 usd including shipping"

I am no expert and I like this rep, posted so that you guys can do some comparison.

I have a V4 movement has same flaws, 

the bridge etching seems to be the biggest one, I’ve seen worse where the whole think looks bold. 

The R seems squint after v3 unfortunately, but the I is a lot better, go figure haha

@BadApple Great shot!!!

standard flaws aside the finish of this movement is very good! 

One of the cleanest bridge inscriptions I’ve seen. 

noob movement and KW case factories perhaps? 

Very impressed.

How can you boring twats over analyze the world's simplest and most boring watch to this degree!!?! Half of your pictures are of the back, ie a part that no one gets to see on the wrist, whereas the front of the watches are basically identical. What's to discuss? Snoozefest!

I beg to differ, the 112 is more boring.

Intresting

perhaps these models are to Pam what the Calatrava is to Patek.   Simple design that is quintessentially the brand.

Here's the bit that no one sees on mine (I was feeling left out). I'm not sure what version it is.

Impressive!

Is that good or bad?

And how do you know (when they all look the same)?

Factory can be seen by the shape of the swan neck,  HFac is closer to gen. it’s the bit with the two screws on the swan neck. 

V3 has a good bridge inscription but short i V4 due to to the dodge QC seems to have varying degrees of bold letters and a squint R. 

In terms of case the lug sits lower on a KW /XF, noob sits higher. 

It’s honestly in the small details against a gen. I’m not even joking when I say it was things like the quality of front and back Crystal ( most obvious where the light catches the bevelled edge) that were one of the few tells Marlin vs Gen.

I beg to differ, the 112 is understated and classy and therefore excellent.

Fixed that for you ;)
