    Nice. Not with a bracelet though, you’ll ruin the side of the watch (if you care that is).

      I found when I swapped my VSF 116610 bezel for gen it was quite noticeable. Specifically in low light settings or indoors not near windows. You just can't see the numbers as clearly, they aren't as bright. I will admit though this is something you would only notice side by side but it was very clear to see. Did they improve on the 126610 bezel ?

        Seeing as he said there was no visible difference between VS and Gen….yes?

          I have one 126610 with gen bezel and one with rep bezel. I can only tell them apart by looking at the pip at 10x because the vsf pip has a dent from me bumping it. Aside from that I see no difference.

            Interesting, I'm wondering if the early vsf models were perhaps a little duller then on the bezel and maybe they improved them down the line. Mine is a 116610 with the rehaut misalignment at 12. They were the early ones I believe. I'm glad I had the bezel swapped out for gen but I have a feeling later ones were almost perfect out the box as you say.

              Thank you

              I am happy with this finish out of the box.
              The bracelet is only for the picture, lol.

                Can someone help verify is this a VSF116610 LV? serial number is s29

                the bracelet rattles quite a bit and squeaky

                Also compare to me v2s, the v2s "feels" beefier. Can't really explain it but v2s just feels chunkier. Not sure do other members have similar experience

Now it’s impossible to find 1 and the only other option is getting the 126613LB, just didn’t want it to be too big so asked the question. I understand the gold is not as good as the CF and I’m sure I read somewhere that the end link is 3 piece and not 1 solid piece

                  Hey do you know if VSF made a two tone version of a 126613LB?

                    Was the prof xtal worth it to you? Which one did you get? 2xAR? I feel VSF xtals pretty good OOTB

                      You’re right that the VSF xtal is already plenty good. I bought this one with the prof black hole already installed, but it probably wouldn’t have been something that I would have gone for if it was just stock.

                      IMO I feel like it’s a 10% improvement with the prof crystal. Clarity is better in the date window and the cyclops edges are cleaner.

                        Posted elsewhere, should be in here too..

                        This is incorrect. That is a 126610 and a 116610, the endlinks are not the same.

                        The 126610 actually has a very slight midlink step, not like the 116610. This was an incorrect assumption that I made too, however it seems VSF were on it from the start.

                        The genuine 126610 endlink is shallow and not well defined, it looks like VSF..

                        Here are 3 genuine 126610...

                        VSF endlinks are 90% there. Give a gen a polish and it'll have VSF endlinks.

                            Took some comparsion pictures of the VSF and Noob 126610LN some days ago, thought I'd share it here as well for anyone who's interested: https://imgur.com/a/ppqCayM

                                I’m under the impression that the VSF 126610 comes with a “ warranty card”and 2 swing tags?

                                My QC picture had no swing tags and Lana at JTime said no card was included.

                                Not that it’s important, it’s just small details that make the $588 worthwhile.
