    VR3235 - Interest check

    Hey guys, just wanted to check with the members here on any interest in this movement? As you might know, I sell VR movements on this forum and response has been good from the members.

    The VS3235 is unobtainable, its made by the Liaoning Factory and I got no contacts there.
    This VR3235 is the next best thing, made by a different factory, but its the same factory as the VR3135 and VR3186 makers. Everything is the same as VS3235 except the regulating pins being on the other side of the balance.

    It has been ordered in large amounts by some of the "smaller" makers like VRF, GMF and even ARF might be using this. But the recents raids have halted the progress of these factories. I may be able to get some of this movement if anyone needs them for franken projects or anything like that. Picures in the next post.

          I want one! Been looking for a good clone 3235 to go in a DJ41. Once you have any available I will place an order.

            Also, I believe there are 2 versions of 3235 with different date seating plates - one for the DJ with a wider DW and one for subs with a narrower one. Hopefully they'll both be avialable.

              This is an interesting development. I can definitely use one immediately and can see a real benefit to them as the VS3235's have some issues with winding and with their balances.

              This new VR "3235" is definitely a hybrid movement - it retains many of the same parts as a VR3135 which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean it is not gen-spec like the VS3235. Some quick observations I have made:

              The dial side of the movement is very similar to the VR3135, sharing the same calendar parts, the date finger, and the date corrector (5 point star).

              There are no dial feet holes in the VR3235, so it looks made to accept a gen-spec (and VSF) 126610 dial and not a 3135 dial.

              This VR3235 is not made for the 126334, which has a larger diameter date indicator seating and larger diameter dial and datewheel

              VR3235


              VR3135 (note dial feet holes at 2:30 and 7:30)


              VS3235 126610 (Sub 41)


              VS3235 126334 (DJ41)
