    Clasp and Crown got new engravings thats it, rest is identical even the same flaws like before (bracelet to stiff + mud and other ****, AP logo misaligned, screws misaligned etc etc lol).

    JF must really get better QC because i saw it with the 15202 bracelet which has the same brushing (and on my unit a wrong mounted bracelet lol) and it worse than my JF 15202 V2 the brushing looks more gen but the quality is not near the same as with my 15400 JF V2 it feals way more cheaper and the steel is more softer.

    They should fix if you look on other watches in this price segment like the Submariners or the new Omegas you see better quality for the same price or less.

    Nah, I don't share your opinion here. The RO bracelet is the most complicated one out there. And yet, JF is doing a great job at it. Yes, it's stiffer than TF one and still the best bang for buck out there. No rollie bracelet comes even close to being as difficult to make as RO one

    Then why is the JF V2 bracelet better? I have the 15202 here and had the JF V4 15400 with the same issues. Don't know why it's so difficult to make it when they did a good V2 version 4 years ago, same with the blue dial, still crappy printing and dull blue color where the V2 had a way better contrast/color.

    It seems like they do one thing better and then 3 worse.

    Default AP Royal Oak 15400 V5 soon!

    I thought from consensus the main things that we want with this watch is thinner case and more accurate datefont...

    Keeping my v4

    Too late. It's already being shipped out .. I think I can adjust the screw at 2 oclock. I plan to give it a full spa treatment and maybe even send it to Watchknob to give it a nice tune. I almost got a v4 days before this model came out so im glad that I waited. The clasp and bracelet engraving's quality is wayyyy better and it looks better all around IMO. nothing will ever be perfect so this is as best its gonna get for the time being. With a few mods and tuning, I think it will be great.

    What’s the final word on the blue dial? I have a v5 blue dial incoming and just curious what the experts think. Thanks.

    Here's what I mean. Some new JF V5 dials have the "SWISS MADE" print on a flat plate, instead of directly on the tapisserie like the previous versions. No more "sWiSs MaDe" effect The tapisserie is also a bit lighter, not as "pimply" as before.
    This new dial is now available on the SS V5 (white) and the RG V5 (black) as far as I know.

    Here's another side by side picture with the current SS JF V5 in black (left) + RG JF V5 black (right).
    You can see the slightly less pronounced tapisserie and the difference in "swiss made" printing. Small details, but a very welcome improvement IMO

    The watch is lovely. I don't know if it's just me but sometimes the color seems a bit saturated, a bit like copper (more rose than gold), otherwise it's pretty good.
    Most of the times this won't be an issue, specially in daylight.

    They should fix if you look on other watches in this price segment like the Submariners or the new Omegas you see better quality for the same price or less.
    I’ve been told that new stuff from JF / ARF won’t be as refined as stuff they used to release.
    Someone who follows rep factory told me that are way understaffed (even for Chinese standards) and their stuff won’t be that great until they solve some problems.. that’s what I’ve been told and in a way it makes sense judging by some stuff they released lately or even by lack of new releases.
    I’m actually waiting for ZF 15400, black dial look sick!
    I have feeling it will be best 15400 ever released - and I usually don’t say stuff like that unless I see entire watch.
