    There are two 3235. One from VR (RF, CLEAN, MI, VMF uses this movement) Dandong factory makes vs3235 (exclusively made for v6f/vs boss) mods on the movement for the vs movement (engraving) are done by a company that works for different big brands like citizen.
    Thanks for the info.
    In that case, would the VR3235 more reliable in view of it's reputation in the 3135 and 3185 GMT movements?

      My understanding is that VSF didn't use the VR movements, that's why they are called VS3235
      Ok. so the movements are _not_ made by the assembly "factories". To my knowledge, there are several actual watch movement factories who make, among others, the sterile (non-engraved) base movements for the assemblers (who we call rep "factories").
      • Dandong, aka, Liaoning, aka. Liaoning Peacock Watch Company (in Dandong city which is in Liaoning province)
        • VS3135
        • VS3235
        • N4130
      • Shanghai
        • VR3135
        • VR3235
        • VR3185/6
      • Seagull
        • Many many movements
      This is what I have gathered from several sources, there's probably many more.

        Craving for top quality reps customers like us at RWI are simply skeptical about the standards of those reps coming out of the new factories mimicking the quality of VSF. Time will tell if they are really up to the par.
        You’re right. From this point of view VSF seems like GEN. Imo trustworthy factories are ARF, GMF and CLEAN when it comes to Rolex.

                None to be honest. Clean played dirty can not change to clean from a day to another

                        Hi all, I'm new to reps but happy to take one for the team so I just ordered a 126610LN from Andrew.

                        I'll share QC pics once I GL mine (please correct me if what I'm doing is wrong, I've only been reading on this forum for a few days!)

                        I read this thread and noted that it won't be a PERFECT rep - none are really - but another concern was the lack of photos of the movement.

                        Before paying I asked Andrew if he'll provide QC pics of the movement, he said he won't because "opening the back will void the warranty" .. not quite sure what to make of that but thought I'd share with the community here .. I didn't even expect these to have warranty! thoughts?

                          The team thanks you mate. Yeah, most reps have a 6 month warranty, you'll have to read the dealers section for details. All the best.

                            Setting lever? Is it this?

                                probably the water resistance. but you can open it when you get it and you can see for yourself! but then you may want to get an air pressure test to check the seal of the case after you close it just to be sure you didnt mess it up.
