    ROYAL MAIL - SORTED FOR DELIVERY - Due to be delivered today
    Mine got the scan through the night, will be with me today so I’ll get a few pictures up once it arrives. Are there any particular areas of interest?

      Looks great buddy. Plenty of gens with that same SEL...

          Cant see the image (need to use [img] tags), what specifically are you concerned about with the clasp?

            I'm concerned about width and spacing on right

              I think it looks good and don’t believe you’ve got anything to worry about.

              One thing to remember is the angle it’s been photographed at and that the item has also been photographed in-hand (meaning gravity comes into play and can make the clasp/bracelet drop and look like it has more of a gap).
              I’ve also noticed that the factory lighting is very intense which seems to cause reflections and light bend on metallic surfaces which can cause distortion to the shape of the watch.

                  Here are a couple of photos of SELs. My unit has a H7Z clasp.

                    In case anyone's wondering what it looks like next to a BB58 blue. I kinda like the 58 more.. I've always hated green color on watches, but hoped that I could finally understand what it's all about...it didn't work I mean I like it inside, the bezel looks very dark shiny green. But in the sun...eeewww...

                      There seems to be a misconception about clasp gaps here. That thing is moving, it's not sitting in one exact position every time you close it or even while you're wearing it. The construction (also on gen) isn't that sturdy, see below shots just a few seconds apart.

                        Just received my qcs from puretime, less than 24hrs from payment. I assume they have some in stocks. Either way thought I'd share, already accepted.

                          Gen bracelet with gap. It's not unusual.

                            Just had the postman drop mine off, very fast turn around from Trusty Time, currently on a Teams for work but once I finish I’ll get some photos up;-

                              I just saw this add on Chrono24:

                              https://www.chrono24.com/rolex/rolex...id17442609.htm

                              and you can actually see through gaps between the SELs and lugs. Can you guys see gaps too if you hold the watch against a light source?

                                Personally those don't look like gaps but rather light reflecting off the edge of the case above the recessed end link. The bright light looks like clear space which gives the illusion of a gap. In another shot with the watch orientated on its side the light hits differently and you don't see what appear to be gaps anymore

                                You can also see the bright light I was talking about hitting this photo and why it would create the illusion of a gap once it hits the interior side of the case when it's flipped vertically
