    Has anyone sourced one of these with a rep of the Blue Rubber strap? I saw a gray dial with the blue rubber strap in a window at an Omega AD and fell in love. Just wondering if they're available and if anyone has pics.

          I love the look too. I just ordered a rubber strap from the Ali express link someone posted in this thread. Will post pictures and a short review once it comes in. Looking forward to the VSF straps too , hopefully they can be ordered separately.

The deviation of the upper right hand marker is off .003". A hair is .005". I don't think you will be happy with any Rep or you won't have any TD willing to sell you a Rep.

              It is annoying that OMF just released this model too but OMF does not have the level of skills that VSF has.

              By the way, what is the reason that VSF does not use their super clone movement for this watch model?

                Yes. OMF is a 3rd tier maker, I have a couple of OMF's Breitling SOH's.

                  The gen doesn't use the same movement as the clone. (No independent hours hand set / use regular quickset date) its caliber 8800, not 8500

                  Using the clone movement would be functionally wrong.

                    Because of the balance wheel position.

                      Scrolled through the thread and didn't find the link, is it a gen like strap or something more generic?

                            Thanks.
                            It doesn't look too shabby. Actually, it is surprisingly good.
                            I used to lol on OMF reps as they couldn't match a correct clasp code nor any of their pearls was good, but as per TSWatch photos:
                            - clasp code is correct
                            - v1 pearl is not bad at all
                            - it has a red gasket on helium.

                            OMF v1 bracelet is wrong (same as v1 VSF was) but OMF probably deserves for the own thread.

                              Honestly given the issues with misaligned markers I'm seeing for the Black Bay Bronze, I think VSF/XF recently hired either a drunk or a blind employee to assemble those...

                                QC's can take up to a week. Though as this watch is considerable new, I expect one to two days max. Careful to read the TD email as some TDs only offer buyers 24 hours to provide any comments before they assume you are ok and will ship. In my opinion, I would look for glaring mistakes that, you believe, will be noticeable when on wrist, i.e. misaligned hour markers, spelling, inconsistent patterns, any marks or scruffs on the finish. Anything you need to zoom in for is not worth declining. On occasion when I have received something which doesn't quite meet my expectation IRL (whether the dial printing went amiss that we didn't spot during QC and/or the movement had issues) I was fine to ship back and have it repaired or exchanged relatively promptly.

                                Delivery is tracked and usually takes 3-5 days to arrive in your country, from dispatch. In the UK you may suffer custom charges if Parcelforce is involved but these aren't material.
                                EXCELLENT response! Thank you so much! Im not picky at all. I realize that I'm buying a replica made in the hundreds and can't be as picky as a genuine watch.
                                So now waiting for the QC from Andrew. Exactly. Blowing pics up and being nitpicky isn't going to work.
