    Well, there are several threads about the best Sub replica and every new version is released a new thread is started. Day-Dates don't get half of this coverage, especially the 36mm versions. I wasn't aware of the massive improvements BP did to the 36mm version until i saw it on Trusty's website, that's how obscure the knowledge about Day-Dates is. Most discussion i had over the 36mm DDs were, ironically, in sales threads

    Any reviews comparing the BP to a gen? I don't know much about the 36mm versions, only the 40mm and Day date II

You'd be looking at around $45.000 for the finished product. That's half the price of a genuine California and dangerously close to the price of a 360 Modena, for example.
    Exactly how I feel about frankens.

    None i know of, unfortunately. But we've talked about this earlier, you surely remember the link to a full gold wrapped $1288 Day-Date from Trusty i've sent you in a discussion under some sales thread. It does look fabulous, better than any 36mm 118xxx series DD rep i've ever seen. 18xxx series is a different story since there was TW Best few years back. But it's impossible to find nowadays.

    Understandable, however the difference is that a finished franken is extremely close to the real deal and offers exactly the same experience as a gen counterpart, whereas kit cars do not. And they don't even come close. Watches are just incomparably easier to make than cars, that's the sad reality. If you want to know my opinion, it all depends on the price of the gen. If you could get me a $10.000 super franken 3970 Patek then give me your PP and take my money already. If you want to sell me a $4500 Daytona 116520 franken, which take up for majority of super frankens, then thank you but i'll pass

    I consider the 36mm Day-Date to be the perfect size. It's not really a matter of wrist size, more like a personal preference. Then again, i'm a big fan of everything classical and having an old-world charm.

    The DD40 is sweet, though. Much better proportioned than the DD2, even though it's just a milimeter smaller.
