    Default Skyland V3 vs Gen Skyland (small review)

    I received my Skyland V3 from Peter and I love it!! It felt gen right away. The strap feels nice, the watch is heavy and built quality is great.

    I took these pics at work, sorry for the quality...

    Gen vs Rep










    When I first compared the rep to the gen the first thing I noticed was the difference in AR and dial quality. The gen AR is stronger. The rep AR has a more blueish tint. This is very difficult to capture on photo, but is very noticable when held next to each other.

    Another difference are the subdials. The subdials have some kind of texture. This can be seen when it reflects light. Also, this is very difficult to photograph...

    A side by side comparison:



    rep:



    gen:



    Nothing to add here.. they are identical....


    Pearls, rep vs gen:



    rep:


    gen:


    I think the pictures spoke for themself...


    Then the most discussed part of the Skyland, the lumedots!!

    gen:


    rep:



    The dial close up.
    If you see the dials up close you can see the difference in quality.

    gen:


    rep:



    Casebacks:

    The rep caseback is very good! The sticker isn't very accurate, but that's an easy fix

    rep:


    gen:


    Some more shots:







    And last but not least... the wristie

    Thanks for the side by side pics. First think I noticed when I got mine was the AR too. Trip to Chief might just fix that issue. Too blue AR really bugs me on a black dial, as it makes the dial look blue at most angles.

    If anything, buying the genuine is a ludicrous thing to do! This thing is deal on!

    Hell the only differences for me are the lug shape, dial sharpness (under macro ffs!) and pearl (gen flush, rep raised).

    Wore my Skyland all day today on genuine OR - its unbeatable.

    DVS done a great job at comparing this skyland, nothing beats side by side comparison, Thank you brother.

    The replica progress has increased dramaticaly, on the wrist.. no one can tell I think really hard now to get gen this days... besides bad economy... why spend the gen price where you can get more watches for the money.

    Sticky it is ,
