    Pic from the 19th is a different watch. The kermit. The hulk on the 14th.

    If it floats , flies or fucks it's probably cheaper to rent!

      Is there a specific bracelet you recommend as an upgrade for a 116610? I would like to get that done on mine. Since purchasing my VSF I have Frankened it up a lot (gen dial, hands, full bezel and insert, date wheel and crystal) but the bracelet is lacking. I agree it probably isn't necessarily worth the upgrade on the dial, however I did appreciate the gen hands, bezel and crystal. BUT 99% of people out there would not notice a difference probably, it was just for me a passion project
      I've changed my opinion since I wrote that. Having handled and viewed a number of gen 126610, the VSF (and current CF) bracelet is very gen like. The 126610 endlinks are not like the 116610 endlnks, this was my assumption. in fact, gen 126610 endlinks (midlink step) are a little shallow and less defined compared to 116610.

      Which leaves just the crystal to upgrade, but in my opinion the crystal is pretty good, it's just the cyclops distorts around the edges, I don't care enough about that to want to spend £££ on a crystal upgrade. It's not like it has a white ring around the crystal and needs changing ootb.

      Again, I've had gen 126610 in my hands, I had to check the numbers (rehaut/clasp) to make sure it wasn't actually a VSF! No need to franken it whatsoever.

        Thanks for the update, much appreciated!

        Ok so 11xxxx subs vsf + CF bracelet | and 12xxxx Subs all vsf are the way to go atm?

        Would have thought to prefer at least the cf clasp visually and in terms of haptics on the 12xxxx subs.

          I think the current 116610 is fine, these will only need a bracelet upgrade (for the better midlink) if yours needs it. Some don't, it's your luck. The 126610 is good to go to. I don't buy into the catfish clasp thing for either watch. No upgrades required. Spend your cash on more watches. All my opinion of course.

            Thank you, StreetFighter,

            I will also be looking to "upgrade" my VSF bracelet to a CF/ARF clasp, but plan to keep the rest of the oyster bracelet as VSF based on your feedback.

              I bought a vsf 126610 ln to see if I like it better than my pre raid vsf 114060.

                Man, this forum really needs to disable image quoting by default when a post is quoted.

                  As always, you have to be lucky. Had a lot of vsf watches in hand that totally disappointed me.

                  You just have to find the one good one and to not be stupid enough to sell it.

                      And… I guess they should be the same, but do you also remember how many links has at 12/6h the vsf bracelet?

                      I have just resized the bracelet of a TC as per a genuine 16610 and I’d like to do the same on my vsf, bc I think I did something wrong when I received it (I have more links at 6 than 12 and the clasp is off centered).

                      Unfortunately I don’t have a gen 126610 to compare and all the videos I found on YT show just the side at 6h.
                      Anyone?

                          Fit and finish. Most of the ones I have handled felt super cheap and rattlely.

                              CF bracelet on 12xxxx is a huge upgrade. for $168, it’s worth it.
                              I want your TC 16610LN - if you’re in EU. Shoot me a message!

                                I’m trying to gen-spec resize the bracelet of my 126610 (I know, a bit anal…) On 5 digit subs R factory recommend to remove links at 6h, just wondering if the same could be applied also to ceramic subs by asking how many links gens out of the box have.
