    Default Which Yachtmaster is the best?

    Hi RepGeek community,
    This is my first post here and I'm kind of a newbie to forums but I would love to get your opinion/help on two watches that i want to buy.

    I'm currently looking for two Yachtmasters the 116622/126622 and the 226659.
    I discovered thats it's very difficult to make a choice between all the options there are but i picked my favorites:

    For the 116622 I chose:

    Yacht-Master 126622 GM 1:1 Best Edition 904L Steel Gray Dial on SS Bracelet SA3235 - Yacht-Master - Rolex - Watch Brands
    or
    Yacht-Master 116622 1:1 Noob Best Edition 904L Steel Gray Dial Blue Hand on Bracelet SA3135 - Yacht-Master - Rolex - Watch Brands

    The problem here is that i don't know which one would fit the gen more and which one is more reliable.
    So my question here is, which one would you take or would you recommend another version?


    Same problem with the 226659:

    Yacht-Master 42mm 226659 GMF 1:1 Best Edition 3D Black Ceramic Bezel on Black Rubber Strap SA3235 - Yacht-Master - Rolex - Watch Brands
    or
    Yacht-Master 42mm 226659 316L BP 1:1 Best Edition 3D Black Ceramic Bezel on Black Rubber Strap SA3235 - InTimeWatch

    Which one would you prefer?

    I'm very unsure with the 3235 movement because I read a lot of negative stuff about it.
    But the 2824 is not a good alternative because it winds in the other direction than the gen movements, or does it?

    A lot of questions, but I really hope there is someone that can help me out.
    Im curious to hear your opinions on the watches.

    Thanks a lot,
    HLx

    I am not up to date, but the last time I was into Yacht Master reps, I would have gone for ARF with the rhodium dial. because it is really close to the gen.

    You should know tho, that the numbers on the bezel dont come close to the real thing on any rep.

    And if you get your watch serviced, any movement should work for you.

    I have a ARF Yacht Master I purchased from JTime, it arrived DOA but after having it serviced it works great, I wear the watch often and it is as close to the Gen as I have seen, I am not aware of the numbers on the bezel not being like the Gen, I have had mine side by side with a Gen and hell the Gen owner was even impressed because he nor I could see a difference

    For the 116622 :
    GMF is better now. The main difference between them is the calendar. GMF's calendar can be set from major to minor, same with genuine. But N can't do it.

    For the 226659:
    In fact,GMF and BPF is the same manufacturer,jus call different names. GMF's quality is usually better than BPF

    What about the bezel color? From the qc pics in TrustyTimes, the BPF Rhodium looks a bit too silver, lacking a bit of the warm platinum tone. While the ARF seem to nail it exactly.
    But I can be wrong, could it be just the lighting or the camera?
