    Default VSF Spectre with 8500

    Trusty is amazing.
    Spectre ordered Wednesday, QC on Thursday, ship on Friday and arrived on Monday.

    Here are the first pictures of the unboxing.
    Nicely packaged.

    One of the first things I noticed was that the bracelet was huge. Just got done sizing it. I had to take our five links to fit a 7 1/2” wrist

    nice, congrats on the pick up. When you get the chance, could you take some pics of the movement? Did it also come with a nato strap?

    It did come with a NATO strap. I’ll try to take a picture later

    Movement looks good. Do share how it holds up. Wish they had made the dial more gen like. The rest looks great!

    VSF in clone movements are way better than other factories. They are a devision from V6F concentrate on movement clones.
    They also test their watch movements before put them into production. So I expect great quality out of this.
    My only concern is the adjustable hour hand. This is the weekest parts in these movements.

    I am also not fan of this bubble second hand. VSF Spectre with 8500

    These are some morning sun shots. Hopefully they’ll provide some more detail.

    Amazing.. But looks can be deceiving . how is the feel on hand on close up? I had Sea Master earlier from trusty (5 years back) and as good as it was, I was not highly impressed. So time to be careful now. On a scale of 1 - 10, how would you rate it? How is quality of the steel on this?

    Hi guys, my first post here. I'm seriously close to pulling the trigger on one of these but have a couple of questions. One thing that bothers me is the incorrect TM marking on the 007 Clasp. I must admit I'm not a big fan of the 007 markings on the clasp anyway, how easy would it be to get a non 007 clasp and swap over? Where would I get one from?

    Great pictures in this thread. That movement is gorgeous. And it's a steal for the asking price. I wish it could be worn inside out, ha. Thanks all for sharing.
