The new V2 was just published several days ago, now it is available. I know Clean will upgrade their Panda Daytona in this year, because many Daytona fans complained the V1’s dial color, which looks like a little blue, now facing the competition from BT factory, Clean finally made some improvements on the V1 and published the latest V2 edition.
V2 is much better than previous V1, first, Clean changed the dial color, V2 dial is milky white, not like blue any more, I think that’s the main reason why many people did not buy the V1, they do not like the dial color. Second, the three points on the crown are on the same straight line, now it is curved on V2, which is the same as genuine. I think these are two big and obvious improvements on V2.
If you have both V1 and V2 in hand, you will see some other subtle changes, for example, the color of lume fillment on hour markers and hands is the same, which looks a little greenish, much closer to genuine than V1. On the dial, there are too many small changes if you compare both very carefully, the “DAYTONA” printing is one of them, on V1, it is in dark red, now Clean corrected it to be bright red on V2, which is closer to genuine. Check the SEL of V2 bracelet, is has a correct position now and does not stand that high like V1.
Now, you will know whether the Daytona received from your dealer is Clean V1 or V2 after reading these above. Beside, on the case back of V2, the cartoon character on the sticker should be SpongeBob, not Patrick Star and SpongeBob, there will also be a plastic cap protecting the case comes with V2 Daytona from Clean.
At last, I want to clear up some false rumors you may hear from the online market.
1.BT Daytona is the best, much better than Clean. No.
2.BT Daytona’s crystal has a better transparency, so it is closer to genuine and better than Clean. No. Some people said that the sapphire crystal on genuine is also not that transparent like Clean.
3.Clean V2 Daytona is perfect. No. Like I said before, no replica watch can be made to be perfect.
4.BT Daytona’s movement is better than Clean. No. Actually both BT and Clean have found the movement manufacturer that offered SA4130 movement for Noob before. So, both factories use the same SA4130 movement in their Daytona, however, on the plates and auto rotor of the movement from BT and Clean, the engravings are different in depth and thickness.
The following pictures are V2 Clean Daytona.
