    Default LV-ARF vs GMF vs Noob V8

    Iíve been doing a lot of research on these three.
    So, which one do I go with?
    Or is there another I should be considering?
    My eyes are getting tired.
    I appreciate your opinions

    The best case is gmf the best bezel assembly and insert looks like the noob v8S .The best dial is in the gmf,The best sel and bracelet is the arf,the best hands are the arf. So it is getting complicated each watch has a few great features .So if I could mix and match parts I would do this lol
    Gmf sa3135 mid case
    Arf braclett and clasp
    Noob v8S bezel assembly and insert
    Gmf dial
    Arf handset
    Gen xtal
    Gen datewheel
    But it's not that easy as getting the parts is a nightmare and who knows if the parts even fit

    As you can see the arf lugs are completely wrong and flat and the cg are not correct
    Then the noob v9 has nice lugs now more angled at the tip than the arf.also the cg are better like noob used to do cg on the v6s and early v7the lugs curve is non existent on the arf
    Then the gmf lugs and cg look near identical to the gen below

    Too many versions, this is getting out of hand.

    Let's just say you wanted to use one (black dial) watch as a base, do gen or prof AR crystal, and gen or spongebob bezel insert... nothing else... which watch would you choose?

    I can scratch the V8 off my list (to be replaced by the V9).

    Thanks for the input!

    Lugs on the v9 are beautiful though.

    Can see myself buying the ARF for the hands and bracelet and the noob for everything else and just hope the bracelet gives a better sel fit

    I don’t think I have ever done as much research on a watch as I have on this one.
    I don’t think the Labor Day holiday has helped.
    I’ve made a few inquiries with TD’s and haven’t heard back yet.
    I’m leaning towards the ARF because the movement isn’t as big a difference for me.
    I’ll wait to find out availability and any opinions that the TD’s may offer.
    I’ll share anything that I find out.
    Thank you all for your thoughts

    I finally heard back from the primary TD today on availability of the two watches that I had narrowed it down to. Both the ARF and the V9 noob won’t be available till the end of the month. This may back up some of the things I’ve been reading regarding corrections that may occur between now and then.
    Either way I won’t be placing an order till next month.
    Thanks to all that contributed especially Live.

    Update: Noob delivery reportedly 2 weeks.

    Breaking news:Trusty is listing his Noob with the SH3135

    This could factor into the decision on which one to go with

    Yep, doesn't help he's got the protective plastic from the bracelet stuck between his fingers and bezel as he rotates it.
    Anyone notice both lv and both ln videos are the same? A2836...watch him set the time.

    I’ve been reading a ton of posts on this watch.
    Obviously the V9 replaces the V8.
    I still haven’t seen threads with hobbyists displaying their ARF LV’s.
    Only QC pictures of the V9 not much on the GM version.
    I believe that this watch is still evolving at this time.
    Perhaps in good part to everything that Live/Smoke has been posting.
    So I think that patience might be my best ally.
    Problem is that it’s not my best feature.
    So as a compromise, I’ve picked up an eco LV from my favorite local dealer and will
    probably release it when the Noob or ARF (maybe with an SH 3135?] is readily available.
    I received the eco today and look forward to see the other two in the future
