    Default QC: GF Blancpain Bathyscaphe Titanium

    What do people think of this, I am concerned about an apparent gap between bezel and insert. Have asked for some more pictures

    I'm not sure that the gap is as bad as it might seem and has a lot to do with the angle of the photo.
    Look at this vid; you get similar view about half way through.

    I am easily satisfied with the very best. (W.C.)

    What about the staining by the bezel pearl? It also looks like the pearl itself is messy,maybe some glue residue around it

    Most watches with removable inserts have gaps. Hell, I think this forum has better quality control than the actual brands have sometimes. We scrutinize every possible detail on a rep. Most people who just wear gens donít look that much in to their watches or just donít care because they know itís a gen.

    I wouldnít worry too much about the minor details. You will find a flaw in every watch you see. You just tend to look much closer on reps bc youíre looking for the flaws. People that wear gens do not. They only look closer is something seems broken.

    Thatís just like... my opinion man.

    It was rejected in the end because of the staining all over the bezel, look around the bezel pearl for example. Dealer confirmed that these marks and other could not be removed. Just had QC pics of the replacement QC, and it's another lemon.

    Looks like the workers were chewing tobacco and spit it out on the bezels to cause the stains.

    PM me if you want to sell your Kevin, Ted Su, Wotancraft, Piotr or Simona Straps.

    Strap size is 24 mm and or 26 mm and at least 80mm by 140mm or larger.
