    Not sure what's going on with their crystals recently but that case rehaut looks improved. Transition is a bit low on the 18 although I have seen some gens with this.

      Yea, VRF seem to be often inconsistent with their cyclop mag.

      Transition on 18 could be better but the blue color on insert looks more like gen than ARF IMO.

      Looking forward to see some QC pic.

        Just look at the transitions on this gen.

        Definitely worth noting that the thickness and font of the bezel numbers looks amazing, this would be an amazing rep with a crystal swap.

        Edit: There's a jubilee available too!

            This is quite bad.

            ​and rehault/dial alignment is super bad on that example

              Doesn't look bad and has a better movement than the ARF Batman. Gen crystal and it's OK. CGs seem to be halfway accurate to the 116710BLNR. Also just noticed that they use an incorrect short minute hand on the 126710BLNR.

                Put a Gen crystal on it and you’re good to go. VRF GMTs are great.
                How did the cat get so fat?

                  I agree, gen crystal + gen dw and this is a banger

                    Blue colour could have been bit darker.
                    But engraving on bazel is nice. Better then GMF and DW is better then ARF

                      Do you mind elaborating on what specifically you think looks quite bad on this piece?

                        Gonna have to disagree with you on that one. I’m by no means an expert but the I still think the ARF insert is the best bet. This seems too bright and (even though some gens have it) the transition at 18 would bother me.

                        IMO since this has the VR3185 I feel like a decent build would be the VR base + ARF insert + gen DW and crystal + ARF bracelet (if the quality has returned to what it once was).

                          Hmm nice.
                          wonder if this is CLEAN batman insert.

                            Insert is a vast improvement over the last VRF Batman insert. It doesn't look significantly different from some ARF inserts I've seen with a slightly low 18 transition. The blue color on the insert is fine. Dial and hands are very good. Crystal needs to be replaced, DW is probably OK with better crystal. Rehaut still looks rough and bracelet looks like same as GMF (6MW clasp) so not as good as Noob Jubilee.

                            The blue GMT hand looks too light in color (same as ARF).

                            Dial and rehaut alignment are good on this sample.
