Saw this posted and had to check it out. If this thing looks as good as the pics, we may be able to call some of the open back Omegas, Super Reps.

You can see the balance is using a single post in the gen, where the rep has dual posts for regulating. Overall finish is pretty good for a rep, and the jewels arent too bad.

Be interesting to see if they went with the silicone hairspring and DLC mainsprings, or if they are just painted metal.

So this clone movement is available in a variety of watches now and operates similar to gen. Only problem is, these reps are a bit expensive though I may end up needing to purchase one at some point. For the time being, I'm happy with my current black balance wheel watch but this one looks more perfect than the previous decorated movement with a black balance wheel slapped in there. Which is unfortunate for my wallet.

I guess I'll have to order two watches soon instead of just one.
