Hello,

i been looking to get the new release of 3KF, the Green 5168. i checked on TrustyTime about the specs, says 8,3mm thick (8,25 Gen) wich is a dream. anyone has seen any "Real" pics of the Rep yet?

i dont trust the usual TD renders

I recieved my QCs and accepted them though the color is a little bit too green and doesnt look like on the TDs pics.

will share natural light once it is here.

You can see the strap just looks too dark green and nothing like the olive green the gen does

The thickness looks to be about whats claimed, i will take a look and check once it arrives.

These pics are allowed. The rules have changed slightly recently. The watch has already been approved so the pics are fine to remain, it’s only if the poster was looking for opinions or had questions regarding the watch that they wouldn’t be allowed.

I’m also curious to see what this is like when it arrives, as from looking on TD sites it looks too green to me as well and not like the dark olive/army green of the gen.

I stand corrected

One thing the reppers seem to never get right is green. It took ages to get the Hulk right, a superb bathyscaphe recently was a country mile out  and this compared to the gen is quite a way off BUT the watch on it's own and not side by side with the gen is a nice bit of kit and if anything a nicer green. Not so drab.

I own a zzf hulk v2s and the color isnt quite perfect there too, one would think after all those years the rep factorys would finally find a way to copy the colors of the gens.  I do belive the strap color can be adjusted by buying a gen (lol) strap or a alibaba copy,  the dial shouldnt be too wrong in nature.

Dunno if I’d spend £8000 for a rubber strap to stick on my £400 rep :lol:

There are a couple of others, the cheapest being £4500.

That also looks quite appropriate sadly.

Those are some HQ QC pics ! 

About the green, that's where the human eyes is the most sensitive, we are more likely to see tiny differences in the green shades than in any other color, so I suppose this could be the reason the "right" green is difficult to get satisfied with

The day has come, so ill post more pics from outside, bit too dark on the strap however not as much of a difference as you may expected.

watch is on the large side tho extremely thin and comfortable, without any further chit chat here come the first pics (color slightly too saturated due to my shit cam)

One thing to add before i rush outside for these pics, the rotor is loud, like really loud. Would recommend a silencer for this thing otherwise you may wake up your neighbours at night by moving your hand in various ways

@WatchGeek5711 that looks lovely.  The second pic looks very green yet the second last pic looks a bit more of the olive green colour.  How does the colour actually compare in hand to the pics of the gen?
