    I think I’m enough with flawless V6 old one .

          Beautiful! How did you get the gen rubber ? Didn't know there was a rubber option.

            Looks good however the screw on the top right looks like it may come out? I had the same issues with loose screws on the gf bracelet with some falling out. Was going to order 3kf but looks like it may suffer the same problem.

              I got it here, a very good dealer of gen parts and accessories.

              By the way, can anyone tell if this date wheel will fit the Miyota movement on the Santos? one of these, and my Santos will be 90% there! (it isn't gen, but the font date seems correct for the black and blue models)

                Unless I'm missing something, screwdriver + loctite = problem solved?

                  That's what I thought but on the gf bracelet they are not actual screws and are stuck in, some were secure and some would just spin around making it hard to take out and glue back etc. I only found all this out after I looked at the bracelet and a screw was missing after wearing it for 5 minutes lol.

                    Anyone know if the 3KF uses actual screws, or similar fake screws to GF?

                      Wow, that is seriously fucked. how much harder would it have been for them to just use real screws, wtf. Thanks for clarifying that though. Did you buy from a TD? Are you sure your watch was a GF?

                        Yes it was via a td and I have shipped back for a refund as I'm sure a fair few would have dropped out with time as I wore the watch and after some research this has happened to others. Was considering to order a 3kf but waiting for now.

                          but does the gen use real screws on the bracelet? It would seem very strange to me honestly. Does the GF 35mm, besides the defects of the character (too thin) and of the round second hand, have other defects? Is the mechanism reliable?

                              Can you tell me if the medium size (35mm) has a bracelet sufficient for 19cm wrists?

                                Sorry for late response but i dont know whats wrong woth the 7. the cartier too close to number? This watch and dial looks very big on photos but in reality its so small. Literally unreadable for most people and even the person who wears it. I cannot read the cartier text up to 7cm. Ok i have glasses lol. The screw „problem“ i did not notice at all. Since the member in here pointed it out i look at it sometimes while taking a dump. I would never have seen this. And now have in mind that literally nobody know this cartier watch pitside watch nerds.

                                i think you should all lower you expectations in reps. A no go would be if the crystall falls out or bracelet is trash. I hope this wont be the case. If so i post it and try to inform you all.

                                i bought 3 watches in the past month:

                                santos 3kf, vsf starbucks and vsf pam.

                                the santos is by far my favorite
