    Its hyperbole. there is no part of the watch that resembles a mouth - a catfish one or otherwise.

      ..the SEL's are the same are VSF - shallow, soft edged, lacking any defininition.


      For reference, this is what we're talking about when I say crap SEL's (illustration borrowed)



      So we should ask precisely for the CF 126610 models?

      I am seeing more inconsistency among 116x series

        Experimenting with a SEL from the parts bin. It’s possible to file the outer links lower which creates more definition and a taller center link. I used a fine Swiss file that only cuts on the bottom and doesn’t cut into the sides of the center link. A crisp result is possible. I didn’t brush or polish. This just the result of filing, and I think it has potential.

          I'd very much doubt there will be any difference. If CF use the same case for the 126 and 124 then they'll be using the same bracelet too.

              The clasp is dog shit. If you close the clasp and look at where you pull it to release it, the gap is huge compared to how it should be and looks like the mouth of a catfish, hence why so many people change the clasp or won’t wear the watch.

                just today I was watching the closure of my vsf ... in fact all the time it bothered me. I never thought I'd fall into these things ... but I admit it. the catfish effect is awful.
                how is it resolved?

                  Found an old photo and reposting... My 1LQ clasp isn't as bad, but clearly there are better options. I will still be buying a CF bracelet due to the full 904L, better clasp and my misaligned lug.

                    Nice 1, I couldn’t post a pic as I sold the watch it bothered me so much. It’s also more noticeable when on the wrist than it is in the picture above.

                              If you can't see it people it is not an issue... or is it?
