    StreetFighter , You made a great thread...
    Really cool pics and the differences between the two are really minimal. Even without any mods. The first thing I noticed is the difference of the Glidelock Crown , which is a bit different from the gen , but nothing irreparable
    For the rest , the classic : "Buy , take out of the box , wear".
    But if you want to throw your money in the landfil , go ahead and do some mods with gen parts.....

      Great post! in some of your pics i can see some slight difference in the proportion of the rehaut angle - distance from the crystal.

      It's very slight but it makes it look deeper, and as if the rehaut is more angled, more "wok-like", and less vertical as per gen.

      This is the only negative point of VSF imo.

      Amazing pics

        Totally agree, mods not required, nice if you have the parts there but if your bits are used parts you’ll make it look worse (read as used)?

        EDIT: I don’t mean you (I know you just modded a rep, great work!), I refer to my own experience when once I modded a JF16610 with used gen bits and I had a used watch afterwards with a chipped crown and crystal and used insert etc..

        @mari115.. yes, the rehaut is the worst part of the watch. It’s angled and the spacing is out. As far as I can tell, no reps have the correct angle yet (it’s there to aid the etching process I read elsewhere?). The rest of the fine details more than make up for the lousy rehaut I think, a small price to pay for premium build quality and attention to detail.

          Very impressive comparison pics. VSF is basically building what is a1:1 Rolex. I picked up two of the 126610 series. What a huge jump in quality from the movement to the case, dial, and bracelet. Just unbelievable.

            Right is Gen in the 4th Pic from the top. You can tell by the hour hand.
            That and the just ever so slightly rounder edges of the indices was what I was looking at, thx!

              VSF VS3135 or VSF VS3235?

                First up a VSF super rep:

                VSF116610 -v- Genuine

                Out the box, no mods on this rep.
                Thanks a lot for this comparison and your other post comparison, so good!! I was curious if you have noticed any difference in the tone of the metal on the VSF in terms of how it hits the light etc? Does the bracelet pop the same as your gen?
                Some times I get the feeling my bracelet feels a little dull compared to my Steinhart but I don't have a gen 116610 to compare to, it could just be my mind trying to find fault! lol.

                  Essentially i'm just wondering if you feel it wears the same if that makes sense

                      I can't see any difference.

                              flyinhawaiian KRF looks super close! Dial color and font thickness seem a tad bit different but could be due to lighting.

                                Nice. How is the quality and feel compared to the Tudor?
