      Whoops just realized this was the sub thread and not the DJ thread.

      Any one tried to franken the watch with 3235 movement yet? I read in earlier pages that there was a video saying that it can take gen parts but I haven't seen any one done it yet.

          Just tried my 126610LV and Yachtmaster 42.
          The YM 42 was tightly screwed, but the Submariner was indeed a little bit loosen up.

          This is really important.
          Thanks for the info!

              I also have a rubber ball, but this thing works better

                I've never seen that setup, that's a really good idea to prevent scratching. I have a version of the rolex case back tool modernclassic posted and I have had mine slip on occasion and scratch a case back here and there. I think the teeth on the attachments are not as deep, it definitely isn't a top of the line version.

                  Guys, you can do it with a screwed up ball of duct tape if you don’t have tools. Temporary measure.

                    When I started, I used a kitchen silicon mat
                    After a while I've bought the rubber ball and it works really well.

                    My "invention" works best because I have better grip with that handle.

                      ok too complicated for me, if it happens I go to the watchmaker!

                        LN 1LQ (top); LV H7Z (bottom):


                        LN 1LQ (top); LV H7Z (bottom):


                        Quick measurement. I apologize that they are not the best pics.

                        I first purchased the LN a few weeks ago. The LN has the clasp code 1LQ. I was so impressed with the watch that I immediately purchased the LV.
                        Today I received the LV and it has the clasp code H7Z.

                        Based on these measurements, it appears as the entire bracelet and not just the clasps are slightly different.

                        Above, you will notice that the LN's 1LQ clasp is nearly 1mm smaller (width).
                        Also, the last link on both are different sizes... this time with the 1LQ LN approximately 0.5mm smaller (width).

                        Of course, this does not account for user error and the fact that I measured the LV with it's protective wrapping intact.

                        To my eyes, both watches look the same.

                          So I have been wearing this 126610LV for over 24hrs now, taking it off frequently to look at it and feel it as you do. I just put it down and picked up a 116610 and I'm shocked at how the 116610 now feels alien. It feels the way a 16610 felt after handling a 116610. It feels lees substantial, lighter, daintier.. now bear in mind the 116610 is a tank.. the 126610 makes it feel like a backwards step same as going from a 6-5 digit feels!

                          Well done Rolex, I love this thing! It's the new favorite watch, a very pleasant surprise. I'll need the LN now.

                          What a job VSF have done giving us such a superb built tank of a watch, words cannot describe the value for money here. Must be the best value-quality watch for the money - in the world (Clarkson voice).

                            Thank you, this is great information. Can you please take pictures of both watches particularly with close ups of the SELs? Looks like the lack of taper was not just on the prototype. It seems like when purchasing from a TD asking for 1LQ is a must.

                              This is the LN 1LQ.

                              My LV pics won't be of help as I don't want to remove the plastic... My TD offered to swap this watch out for one that has the 1LQ bracelet as it was something specific that I asked for when ordering. He assured me that he had spoken to the factory and they stated that it was the newest batch and there was no difference. I took his word.

                              I told him that I would decide when I got it in.

                                Your SEL looks nicely recessed throughout the arc.

                                This confirms SEL recession, SEL sharpness, fit and finish, bracelet taper, and clasp have all been improved since inception of release.

                                Now it's like playing roulette hoping your TD gets you the right one. Hopefully the older batches get phased out quickly.

                                You've gotten a good model there. Shame about the other.
