    so its clearly not a real issue to many
    It’s been posted about numerous times over the years, and not by myself, you clearly haven’t seen it.
    Your obviously happy with your “12 series” VSF, that doesn’t mean others can’t highlight issues that bother them, and by others I don’t just mean myself.

      No it doesn’t, looks nothing like a VSF 12 series clasp.
      Side by side, chalk and cheese.

        And who’s talking about your gen.
        You were - when you said it looked 'worse' and 'hideous'.

        Furthermore, it's not my gen as is obvious to everyone. You'd do well to pay attention.

            I was referring to the VSF looking hideous and not the picture posted, you’d do well to pay attention, there’s clearly a massive difference in the 2 clasps and it’s more obvious when on the wrist than in a picture.
            I’m done with this anyway. Some people will be happy with the clasp on their VSF, others won’t and will change them.

              Can anyone confirm if a serial number 2R9 and clasp 1LQ would signal a pre raid Starbucks?

                    What we talking about here, a less than 1mm difference in the gap at the clasp closure?


                    VSF/gen

                    Did someone say they 'sold' their VSF because they could not live with this terribly minor difference?

The only difference between them is maybe the hands are better on the more recent watches but I have no idea when the hands upgrade was introduced. The hands on my post raid 126610 are very similar to gen, pointless to upgrade them (I posted a pic a few pages back).

                        No it has not! I wish I had just this dimension of gab on/at/within the clasp! Mine is definitive larger! I'm slowly getting the impression that basically every gap is now called a catfish. However, I can also understand that people who are not affected make fun of it a little. That's fine!

                          IIRC pre-raid were 2R1 to 2R4 max

                              2RX are for the 41mm subs, S19+ are for 40mm subs

                                Thank you mate so a serial S18V wouldn’t be a proper vsf pre raid 40mm sub?
