        I may be looking for a unicorn, but does anybody know of a 5-digit case set that would fit a VR3186?

        I think the potential problem I may run into is the 3186 movement height which is 0.5 mm taller than 3135 (where there are quite a few options for 5-digit case sets).

          Great post. It would be even greater if it included the Explorer models that also have a GMT hand

              Stock from the rep factories,

              4 digit Explorers with GMT hands are only available CHS since the gen GMT hand is on the bottom.

              CHS
              2813/3804
              2836

              5 digit Explorers with GMT hands are available CHS or ICHS exactly the same as GMTs.

              ICHS
              2813/3804
              2836

              CHS
              3804 (not recommended, movement is unreliable with this mod)

              6 digit Explorers with GMT hands are available CHS or ICHS but none have been fitted with the new superclone movements yet (VR/SH/SA 3185/6). Most 6 digit models have the fake (correct) engraving 3187.

              ICHS
              2813/3804
              2836

              CHS
              2824 timebomb
              3804 (not recommended, movement is unreliable with this mod)

              So you can see there is very little difference between the GMT and Explorer models regarding rep movement choices.

                KJ2020, Ive seen your name a whole boatload of times today. I have a Noob 216570 with CHS A3187. As a project I would really like to try to swap it with a VRF 3186. I think you have the most knowledge on this subject, would it be possible to do this?

                    This was very helpful and makes a noob feel a little less dumb

                        Subscribed to this post KJ2020, truly amazed at your GMT knowledge here. I think I have the GMT sickness, 2 separate models on their way to me....and so it begins.

                          Fantastic information and post! Thank you very much for spending the time to write up about the various different movements. I have learnt a lot and also now bit more knowledgeable but also now curious/tad confuse about the various descriptions on the TD sites.

                          Q1: Being that there seemingly is a new SA3285 CHS (V3) released from GMF for their Rolex GMT models, what base movement is this out of?

                          Q2: And is it as reliable as the (ARF)SH3135 or (VRF)VR3185 or (GMF)A3186? Any idea anyone?

                            GMF SA3285 (and GMF SA3186) are based on SA3135

                            GMF released true clone 3285

                            For either 3135 or 3185/6 movements (which just add GMT bits to the base),

                            VR>SH>SA
