Chopard Happy Sport (36MM mechanical) GEN and YF Comprehensive Comparison
Hello everyone, this is Steve and I'm back.
This time we bring you a comprehensive comparison of women's models. Although male friends are the majority of this forum members, there must be a certain number of female friends.
We can't only focus on the comparison of male models, take care of you female friends and bring more comparisons of female models would be necessary.
This is not only convenient for beauties to choose, but also allows guys to have more references and selections when choosing watches for their wife or female friends.
View Under Light
For the overall appearance, YF is doing very well. The gold-plated color of the case is well controlled, and the color difference is already very small, but there is a slight difference in the center of the dial.
The spiral pattern of GEN is a silvery texture which is more clear and three-dimensional, while YF feels a little obvious, their spiral pattern lacks three-dimensionality and the color is white.
Bezel Side View
The front width and side width of the bezel are basically same as GEN. If you have to pick out a thorn, it is that the gap between the bezel and the case of YF is slightly larger, no need to care about this too much as it might related with watch batches.
Crystal Side View
Same as GEN, the crystal edge of YF is chamfered obvious, the slight disadvantage is that the crystal transparency of YF is little worse through the side-by-side comparison of the real watches.
There is no problem with the shape and size of Roman stick, the edges and sharp corners are chamferred sufficiently. However, except for ''I'', the letter spacing inside of YF stick are not well controlled, they are slightly oversized.
As mentioned in the beginning, the spiral pattern of YF lacks three-dimensional, from this detailed comparison picture, we can easily find the main cause is that the surface of spiral pattern is too smooth which makes it not obvious enough visually.
Whether you look at it from a distance or close-up, the difference in the brightness of the diamond is still very obvious. After all, YF is made of zircon, and GEN use real diamond, no need to care too much of this part.
YF mainly has two problems, one is that the cylinder carrying the diamond is too short, and the other is that the height of the internal diamond inlaid bit low.
Calendar Window View
No need to worry too much about the slight difference in window section width, at least YF had done the hierarchical processing of sections as GEN.
YF is a bit stingy for the calendar font, The date 18th of GEN is just like a strong 18-year-old boy, the font is very thick, YF seems to be stunted and too thin.
For the overall shape of case side, there is no big problem. If you look closely, you can still find that the curvature of the lugs is a bit different.
We can notice the lugs of YF is a bit fatter by combining the close-up pictures of the lugs.
Mainly because the upper edge is a bit higher, and the section of the lower edge is narrower, then the lugs looks a little different from GEN.
The lettering on the edge of caseback is quite clear, but the precious metal scales and the dog head logo are a bit sloppy. No more comments about the specific differences, you friends could find it by checking the pictures.
Strap Details View
In addition, the lettering on the automatic rotor is also very clear and regular, but there are some letters missing on the edge splint. On the whole, it's still a very good replica.
Data Comparison View
Note: All measurements are in a clamped state, and there may be tolerance due to slight deviations in the position of the caliper.
Above are all the details of this comparison. In the last, I would like to say a few words. Although the YF Happy Diamond is not good enough in some details, the overall similarity with GEN is relatively high. For female models,
We can’t ask too much for the details, not to mention that this model has only been made by YF all the time, so it is already very good that this model can have such a level. It is not excellent, but I think it is at least meet the standard. What do you think?
Well, this is today’s post, thank you guys for watching, if there are any mistakes, please correct me. If there is anything else I overlooked, you can put it up, and I will try my best to do it complementary and comprehensive, welcome to comment and exchange.
I will continue to bring you more detailed comparisons between replicas and GEN, which is for you guys to better choose your favorite replicas.
(Note: Some photos deviate from the real object due to the angle of the light. The details are mainly written in text. The size of the comparison picture is relatively large. You can download it and enlarge it for comparison.)
