    It's a rep and it's never going to be a gen.

    That being said, it's probably the best rep I own.

    After a tepid first reaction, this one has ended up on my wrist for most of the last 2 weeks now.

    At risk of sounding like a new guy, I can't wait for the no date to come out as well. Thats going to be an insta-buy.

    Have you got your's yet?
    Thanks chap,

    I’m struggling to see where they go with a V2? Is that just me?

    I mean can’t remember when I’ve ever said that, let alone seen a thread not full of “I’ll wait for v2”

    Not gotten mine yet, it’s on its way to me yesterday.

    Looking forward to it a lot.

      Vsf may never release v2.
      They would release v2 if they had to do major upgrade. I’m not sure how much more they can refine this rep.

        My thoughts exactly and this says it all doesn’t it!

            So I was a little sad I hadn ´t received a tracking number from Andrew for some days now, with the raids, CNY and all. And yesterday my 126610LN showed at my doorstep unannounced!! Guess it helped to not obsess about the tracking, lol . My 2 cents: It is better than my 116610LV VSF in almost every aspect: Insert, dial, markers, and hands. Literally blew me away. SELs almost non-existent, but I don ´t care that much about those. And I see what Rolex did there with the new case and bracelet, very nice, although with 1mm more on the clasp width, that is a little on the big side. I dont know how VSF could do this one better, the hype was real.

              Really is a nice rep, like the feel and fit of the bigger specs. I do like the LN a tad bit better tho.

                stufuse : Great comment, these are words of true wisdom.
                Doesn't really answer my question though does it pal? And I also didn't dispute it not being a good example.

                For your information, I wouldn't reject a watch for a minor alignment issue at the sel/lug so long as it wasn't too obvious to me. I've got many VSF's and am interested to see if they are improving the finish with each batch on this one.

                Maybe you're better off keeping your hands away from your keyboard if you can't reply with something constructive.

                  Now I'm even more excited, mine should be here tomorrow. The VSF Hulk blew me away, if this is better then I might not make it through this, I'm still recovering from the LN..

                    I'm not sure I would say it was better, but definitely on parity - which puts it in the same league. My first take was the bracelet edges were a bit sharper but after this easy fix there was nothing to complain about. I guess it comes down to whoever did the finishing in China. The clasp on my 116.. was a lot sharper than the 126.. for example...

                        Oh wow, thank you for posting those. That is exactly the way my SEL looks, it's recessed near the case but very close to flush near the end of the SEL on the lug end.

                        I'm not baiting with this at all, but Duckber what are your thoughts on this? My SEL looks just like the gens in the pics above, so it looks like there are variations even amongst the real thing. I know you're all for the complete SEL being recessed, but given that there are gens that have the same gradual transition, would this make the purchase any easier for you or are you holding out for a totally recessed SEL? Are there mods you can do to the SEL to achieve the look you want?

                        BTW, mine is and LN version with what we are calling a "first generation" H7Z clasp code. I think that is the wider of the two released clasps as well by half a mm if I recall correctly from like 40 pages ago?
                        So again, this not baiting or trying to incite arguments. I am replying to you since you asked, and this is just my opinion.

                        I agree with you, and you may not have noticed but I am one to also criticize Rolex for their lack of QC lately. Their rehauts, cyclops, and now their SELs are completely random. Yes there is variance in terms of SEL. I believe that those were in initial batches and have been phased out of production now. If I received one of those with bad SELs I'd be pretty annoyed knowing that others have received flawless SELs like these for the same amount of money:



                        These are gens with flawless SEL recession, and I think that the ones shown were from initial batches are not produced like that anymore. But if someone gets one with messed up SELs there's nothing you can do but bend over and take what Rolex gives you in today's climate, so what can you do really? They'd laugh at you and say it's part of QC tolerances and if you don't like it someone else will gladly take it.

                        I mean imagine getting this when those end links exist, as I posted this a couple times:





                        I think modernclassic called himself something like a case and crown fanatic or something like that. I'm similar but for SELs. Those SELs look offputting to me, gen and rep alike. It's why I love my 116610 by VSF, they knocked it out the park. Midlink SEL is also very sharp. Even with recessed end links the mid links seem pretty soft and not sharp like on gen with VSF's 126.

                        Now again no one will ever call people out on these things, it's not a bad rep, but we all have tolerances for what we are okay and not okay with with flaws. I could let go of many things as flaws. But for ME personally, SELs are a standard that I think defines a luxurious Rolex watch. And I do have a feeling that VSF will eventually tighten up their SELs (still think this is more to do with their factory making them and will eventually be congruent much like their 116) so it's worth waiting for me.

                        It's like getting a tilted cyclops and showing gen Rolexes with tilted cyclops. It's like yeah, Rolex messed up too... but I'd like to avoid it if I can ya know? So for me it's worth waiting, as one thing I'd give VSF credit for is that they seem to be pushing silent updates constantly as time goes on. They already updated a handful of things without even stating a word. It also makes me hesitant to ever get a day one purchase for a VSF ever considering they push updates around the clock lol. It's been confirmed they are releasing the GMT's in half a year's time and I'll likely wait a few months after to pick up a Pepsi with all the after-release updates they do.

                          The more I look at the VSF 126610 and picture of the RF one, the more I believe the level of that middle hump of the SEL isn't high enough compared to the sides. I'll try to take some pictures of this tomorrow.

                              I don't remember being your pal, you must have mistaken me for an actual pal of yours.

                              I often forget that it's 2021 and that people get "triggered" very easily and need safe spaces. Sorry for disturbing you and for causing you mental pain. I tried to save you the disappointment, I've obviously interpreted your words the wrong way. I hope you can forgive me some day. I'll try to be more constructive in the future and will stay away from my phone in case I don't have anything smart to say. I've learned my lesson, thank you. It's good to learn from experienced members like you. I'm blessed.

                                Tlbd careful. This is the worst when you expect it tomorrow and then it doesn't show up for a week.

                                It happened with my last delivery and I was watching my door constantly those 8 days. And I got it the Saturday before the holiday. The idea of missing a sat, Sunday and monday holiday was so frustrating. Thank God it came.
