    I guess that's subjective but imo looking at pic I just posted and some others I would say it's a bit more than "halfway" to gen...!?

    But again, we all see different and some say a wrong letter in the rehaut is an instant tell but I'm just trying to see things realistic without beeing too negative.

    Not sure which memberthat justshared this fine comparison pic. Gen to the left and VSF on the right. I don't really understand people that say VSF has a lack of sunburst. Am I blind?

    There are like 100 more comparison pics here, I don't neee to repost them all but it looks like VSF is about 95% correct i dial

    VSF still is best looking out of the box 126334 for sure, especially with 3235 movement.

    Trust me....I really wanted to like it's dial....but just can't....more I look at it...i just can't.

    that's why i'm going after gen dial now....

    This is relatively speaking. On its own it's fine. Put it near the ARF and ARF just looks better. Gen dial or bust makes little sense to me but to each their own.

    I hear you Have owned the ARF Blue for a long time now (since their v1). The blue is deeper with stronger hues and goes through infinite color variations. The big problem is the dial gets too dark during some light conditions. I don't know about VSF but the gen blue in sunlight is pure magic!!

    You would have to either clip the ARF dial feet and use dial dots (eww) or drill holes into the VSF 3235 date plate (challenging and possibly not feasible due to placement issues).

    Another solution could be to drill holes in the VSF 3235 date plate in places where there are no issues due to other elements being in the way, and reglue feet onto the ARF dial in those acceptable spots.

    Probably the 126610 VSF 3135 date plate was necessary since the dial is the older style 3135 dial with dial feet. So for a 3235, the 126610 VSF dial is not gen-spec.

    VSF used the new 3235 style dial in the DJ41. It has no feet and so the 3235 date plate has no feet holes in it. The dial is friction fit, the lower rims hug the movement. Rotation is prevented by stubs protruding from the movement.

    You got it KJ!! That's exactly correct. In future they will probably fix the 126610 dials also.

    Nice summary, from your pics I also like the deeper blue contrast of ARF.

    The 126610 VSF takes a 3135 DW (they used the wrong date plate here), however the DJ41 in VSF takes the gen 3235 DW, I have confirmed this from my Watchmaker.

    Yes Sir

    in the first two photos you see a Gen, then a VSF and then an ARF.

    I only posted to compare the dial color.

    from these photos and from these lights "it seems" that VSF is more similar to the gen (in color)

    Great pics bro, thanks. I almost grabbed a VSF blue today. I currently have a Noob and while its shade of blue is not gen-like, it looks nice to me. Obviously the dial is a 11x series.

    The crowns are different too on all three dials.

    I honestly like ARF dial better even though it's further away from gen....I know all the VSF fanboys out there will kill me for saying this but VSF dial just doesn't have enough of that deep rich blue color and also lacks in sunburst as well.

    I've came to a conclusion that I'm gonna keep the VSF and just gonna get the gen dial eventually since it seems like it's interchangeable.

    My ultimate goal would be gen crystal (already purchased & on the way),
    gen d/w (does it take 3135 or 3235? I remember reading someone saying it takes 3135 instead of 3235),
    gen dial, hands and crown.

    It's gonna be a fun and long ass journey!

    Cheers.
    That's nice comparison pics. Is it ARF v3 you own? I have the v2 and your dial seem to have deeper blue than mine but it could just be the lighning. Do you know if ARF changed dial color from v2 to v3?

    I only thought it was the 6-o'clock crown that was added in v3 but maybe also a color/sunburst update?
