Hmmmm,

Interesting conversation with Trusty today:

- Me: Hey Trusty, In your opinion which is closer to gen 126610LN, GMF v2 or RF?
- Trusty: I prefer the GMF ones thanks
- Me: !!!

lol Looking at the pictures on Trusty’s website I still like the RF a bit more, I’m probably suffering from a case of being biased to where I spent my money, and indeed I haven’t seen either in hand unlike Trusty, plus I’m still very new to all this but I just feel the lugs on the GMF v2 are still much wider than the gen, and the SEL spacing also doesn’t look as nice as the RF, what are your thoughts?

RF: https://trustytime.io/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_7&products_id=23697
GSF v2: https://trustytime.io/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_7&products_id=23777

if we do this, then we have to take into account that RF introduced it Andrew, and to date his answer to that question with respect to Clean, JVS, etc. he always replied RF.
it's a bit like asking Li from jtime which is the best between RF and CLEAN ... rather rhetorical question if asked to him.

I think that between GMF it doesn't need big introductions in terms of a reliable and high quality factory.

then if the same trusty, who until yesterday recommended RF for its high quality, today arrives and recommends GMF V2 just released, instead of RF, I would wait to see someone in QC photos and especially live before saying ... Andrew says so only because he earns more on GMF and less on RF (which can also be there eh).

I agree, the RF looks better finished, SELs, rehaut engraving are nicer, the position of SWISS MADE is too low on the GMF as well. At least on these pics

I am saying that, beyond the TD gain, it is too early to say anything, it being understood that gmf was not born today, but has been a quality Factory for some time.

I don’t agree - GMF has always been a mid tier factory. Until recently they used the terrible SA movement, their cases have been blocky, edges sharp and crystals terrible. Let’s see if they’ve improved on this rather than suggest they’ve always been great.

Can anyone confirm that this new movement VR3235 has ~70 hours power reserve as advertised?
