    I’ve been reading all your bs for more than two months and it’s time to tell you, that if you don’t get one don’t talk about it.

    So shut the fuck up

    I don't need to purchase to make comments there are viewed in plain sight. Keep me blocked child.

    You know what's interesting is batch variation of Rolex too.

    Check out these two gens and their SELs!


    One is completely flush and one is actually pretty good! Not 116 level but yeah. There is also another poster here who took pictures of his visit at an AD and showed two Sub 41mms with different end link recession... so there's some big time variance. I can't find his post though. And I agree with you; even though I love almost everything about the 126, I'm not sure why they dialed the SEL back. Probably something to add back in 2030?

    Can you take a pic of your gen? Would be interesting to see!

      Not sure if it’s as visible in pics, but the light and the angle matter A TON. Sometimes it really looks flush and others I can really see it.

        The first 2 pics are in the same room same light, last is a different room with different lighting.

          Yeah the SEL isn't deep like the 116. But at least all four sides are even and the recession is constant throughout each arc. It's a stunning watch mate!

            Thanks I really love it, it’s my first gen Rolex. The tolerances are crazy tight. Those VSF subs look real nice though. I had one on the list until I lucked out. Let me know if I can help in any other way.

              Funny. I have a vsf 116619 that actually came today and I'm here thinking the same thing.

              Not so much about outside for me as I haven't even had a chance to take it outside yet today but I've been looking at it and somethibg is off. It's subtle and if you're not familiar enough with Rolex in hand, you wouldn't notice. But if you do know how a Rolex should look, then you know something is off.

              I'm 90% sure the problem is the cyclops. But I get exactly what you're saying.

                      +1

                      if only the sel follows the same curvature as the lugs i would be happy, no matter how much of recession.. the rest of the watch is really good work, just for the movement alone it's worth buying the watch. hard to hold back..

                        Yeah he's been hostile towards me for a while just for having a different opinion than him.

                          Yes unfortunately one of the first thing i look at.. for lug or cg differences you have to be an expert to see, but bracelet fit is obvious, unfortunately seems somehow hard for most rep factories to get right. Am even thinking of trying to source a green and noob bracelet and look if the endlinks fit better.. did someone already measure them in the other threads??

                            The SEL fit is up to variation, I was halfway lucky with mine (just two quick shots with my phone below). Always keep in mind that R factory has variations as well. Not in the curvature matching the lugs, but in the depth of the recess. Don't overthink it and enjoy this awesome rep. If you have a good connection to your regular TD, he'll probably go through some watches to help you find a good one as long as you're open on this point beforehand.

                              thanks for the pics and you got really good example, the sel follows almost perfectly the lug curvature ! Seems like a matter of luck then, how good the polishing job was done be the worker, a little bit more on the upper right lug and it would be perfect, but that can be modded if needed. won't get much better ootb than yours i think

                                also have to say, 1 or 2 years ago we had to fight with SEL gaps from most factories, that's meanwhile history, didn't see any SEL gap from VSF that gen wouldn't have either
