    Is predicting what I'd say an apology? Or are you too hard headed to admit fault? Well, at least you didn't post a meme that you hate so much this time.

    No worries mate, all good. Thanks for the photos. You're the only one who is man enough to do so, I respect that.


    I'm definitely interested in someone with the gen taking head to head pics of the dial and lug shape. I think we've already extensively discussed AR, SEL, and SEL midlink. I'd love to see a comparison of the lug shape and dial size to put those to bed. Definitely waiting for Pietros' head to head comparison.

    More similar to what is in vs12 ..?
    I was not talking about lugs in that post at all... it was about SEL variation with gen Rolexes and what we may assume to be a factor in an update by VSF in the future.



    modernclassic you know what to look for; please compare crystal quality, dial and insert size between the two reps when you get a chance!

      Yes, it feels lighter than my Noob V8 114060 bracelet.
      I didn’t feel any sharp edges. The watch is really comfortable on the wrist...

      It’s just a minor “complaint”, and I can’t even compare it to gen.
      I might say the rest of the watch feels and looks perfect to me!
      I don’t know how much better reps can become.

      Good job, once again, VSF!

        Seems like they’re at 98-99% now on the externals. The smallest tweaks could be done but they’re hardly worth much effort. They’re nearly gen at this point. Going to a free sprung balance could be the ultimate movement upgrade.

          None of my gens do this! I have 2 VSF 126 and they both came with winding crown straight up! Whoop whoop!

            I've had some time to look over this now and I'm pleased to say that I am overall really very impressed with it. It exudes quality much like the 11 series VSF Subs.
            It's the LV that I got and it is significantly different enough to the Hulk that is worth having in the collection too. I don't think there is much point me adding the LN when I have the gen and VSF 11 series LN's in the box as well, but black and green is a nice compromise between wearing your Hulk and the LN, so this will get wrist.

            Is it as good as the VSF116610LN? In my opinion, yes and no.

            I would say the 126610 watch head is better than the 116610. The bezels turns, sits, springs and feels very gen like. The coloured insert set and gap around the outer edge is perfect as is the platinum (silver paint) fill. Unwinding the crown feels buttery just like gen, screwing it back feels almost as clean. Crystal is great, on par with the 116610! Winding feels zzzzzzzzz, not sure if the 3235 is like that as I don't have one. The rehaut is great, good enough for me, better than 116610 but not perfect, the serials don't line up right between the minute markers..being picky here (I don't care about the wrong R in the 116610 nevermind this). I say it beats the 116610 because the rehaut is better and the bezel rotate feels (even) better... but that's just my example, yours may differ. Dial is tremendous as is the DW both with 3d gloss paint fonts. Can't fault it at all.

            The bracelet on the 126610 is great, against the genuine I'll score it 88% but the 116610 gets 95%. The 116610 is silkier, softer, slides between your hands and glides over your fingers. The SEL's on the 126610 drop the ball, in particular the midlink is too low and not quite defined enough along the edges. Clasp and glide are very substantial but my glide is stiff (some grease will sort it) and clasp edges sharp. The 126610 is sharper around all the edges. No matter, I have a Bergeon buff stick and a spare hour later on to deal with that. But ootb, the 116610 bracelet is better imo.

            I am very pleased, it's a terrific watch. It really 'pops' like a genuine Rolex! Very impressive and terrific build quality, with a little refinishing on my part, this will feel like a genuine watch...and we all know it looks indistinguishable! I like what Rolex has done with the Submariner, it's a nice evolution, the 116610 is now a modernclassic!

            If I had to choose between them, the 116610 takes it. It's a little more refined again. Another amazing watch from VSF, I can't believe it. It's like they are giving away Rolex watches for £350.. get in now folks before Rolex shut them down!!! These VSF are 'Rolex made in China'!


            More please Mr VSF, lots lots more!! Keep them coming, I'll buy another box..

              they should use white gold for the indexes and hands

                Nice write up! Very thorough. Thanks.

                I have the LN (haven't taken it off since getting it) and the LV should be in my hands in the next few days.

                  Crown position on my LN is exactly the same.

                    where did you get that watch box?

                    Comment


                      So after wearing the watch all day, I gave it 45 winds and put it in the box to test the mainspring power reserve. 65 hours and 56.5 minutes. Impressive for a rep.

                          That's better! Nice and silky soft. Glides over the hands and fingers when handled, supple and luxurious the way a Rolex should be.

                          All I did to achieve this was a few tickles with each surface the Bergeon buff stick to the bracelet edges top and bottom and then a clean up of any scuffs with the Cape Cod cloth. What a difference. Highly recommended, this kit costs about £10, the results are priceless.

                            Yes, but cape cod messes the brushed surface

                              That's right but I didn't use it on any brushed surfaces. I used it on the polished sides links to remove the marks the coarse edge of the bergeon tool left behind.. this is not my debut.
