    Are VSF 126610's Now Considered To Be "Rare" For Resale Valuation?

    So, at least one of our TD's is selling VSF 126610ln's for $888. Profiteering or establishing the current value for a "rare" piece? Does that mean that those watches are now considered to be "rare" and can be sold here by our members for the same price? Thanks!

    Only a moron would spend $900 on a VSF. And there are plenty of them out there.

        I sent my vsf 114060 to my watchmaker for service. He said it runs perfect, there’s nothing that needs to be done….only time He’s ever said this. I also have a gen no date and the vsf really is that good.

          Make sure you QC the CGs and the cyclops closely. It's pretty easy to tell a fake VSF 126x Sub even with all the me too contenders out there.



          BTW my VSF 126610 LV is getting a new VR3235 installed soon. I've had nothing but trouble with the movement despite adding some gen parts. I'm not alone with that experience.

          People are paying $1.2K and more for Noob Daytonas so I guess an $888 VSF is par for course as long you really get one.

            Wow no kidding? I thought the vsf was it as far as movement goes. I’ve got vr movements in most other reps. Fell much better about that now.

              What parts did you add & what issues were you having? Prepping to franken a VS3235 so this is disconcerting

                On the two I have, the stock balance was unstable and with repeated adjustment got so far out of timing and beat I could not recover. Perhaps the balance became out of poise. I don’t know, but with gen balances and bridges in both they run perfectly. The one I wear has been running perfectly for 9 months.

                KJ can elaborate on his experience.

                  Crazy. They are popping up on the classifieds for far less. Just have to be on your A game!!!
                  FYI this will likely be temporary. VsF will likely pop up slowly again when the heat settles

                      I have a JVS on the way, would really prefer an A2824 to the rep Rolex movements.

                        In the process of fixing the winding issue, the top pinion on the escape wheel broke, requiring a gen replacement. It wouldn't work with the rep pallet fork, requiring a gen replacement.

                        I also had balance issues. The first time I touched it to regulate it, it went out of spec beyond reason and I never recovered it. I was lucky enough to get a second rep balance but now 6 months later it is sluggish and stops sometimes without good reason. I completely stripped down the movement, cleaned and lubed it before putting the second balance in.

                            Yep.

                            The only reason to have a rep movement in a closed case back watch is to try and sell it as gen. Owning it is just asking for maintenance trouble.

                              My first attempt at gen pallet fork and escape wheel failed. It ran +300spd with 8.0 beat error and wouldn’t respond to any adjustments. I put the vs parts back in and it runs fine. Later I tried it on my other vs3235 and it worked perfectly and the parts are now in there permanently. I don’t know if I made an error the first install or if there’s a difference in the two vs3235s. Just letting you know if something like it happens with yours.
