    ARF Yachtmaster 116655 Rose Gold

    Just seen this pop up on Intime and thought I'd start a thread on it as I haven't seen one yet.

    I'm no expert so please chip in, looks nice though, they even stuck a thin blade through the strap like gen!

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

            Biggest flaw is ridiculous date font.
            It’s typical for ARF/JF

              I have one on the way from Andrew, wanted to buy the Noob because of the date font on this but it was not available.

                  Date font is too fat. This looks more JF than ARF. Then again, aren’t they one and the same? Haha.

                  Otherwise the build of this watch is great!

                    So from what I gather, Noob is better but unavailable. How about this one by V9f, which was also unavailable for quite some time.

                      Got mine today - If y'all buy these, be aware this new more gen-like oysterflex ARF is making is way shorter than the one on their daytonas. With my daytona, I had to add a single link , with the adjuster in the middle hole of the clasp to fit comfortably on my wrist. With this YM, I needed 2 extra links, and the adjuster in the outside most hole of the clasp, so we're not talking a few mm shorter, it's a significant difference. I couldn't even get the bracelet over my hand at stock length.

                          Ah I realized why - both ends are the same length. Usually you get one long one and one short one, but this is 2 short pieces, so it's like 13-15mm shorter than you usually get - good news for small wristed folks I guess. Glad I had those RG oyster links kicking around though.

                            Yes photos please! Also are you sure they’re not selling larger straps?

                              At any rate it's real nice feeling (aside from the short strap and fat date) like every other ARF release. Bezel feels great, SH3135 winding is really smooth feeling and really quiet. The addition of the metal flex band into the strap doesn't really make it feel any different from the other ones they were making, so not a huge difference there.
