Steve from Theonewatches.io compares the Yacht-Master 126622-0001 in Gen, Clean, VR, GM, CS.
Front Dial View and natural light photo
There are a little color different of dial between four factories by repeated testing . GEN is gray-brown in sunshine light, The Gm is closet to the GEN from my personal view. The grey color of VR and CLEAN are too light, CS is dim grey.
Bezel Side View
The bezel color of the Four factories are too light, The bezel color of VR is dimer than others. there are significant different with the GEN.( The bezel color of the GEN is a little dark yellow that shall be the reason to wear a watch for a long time. A new GEN looks like more brighter.
Glass Side View
The GM done well for the kit lugs of front glass, it’s close to the GEN. The thickness of the CLEAN’S kit lugs made it too obvious, And the VR and GS seems like had not handled kit lugs.
Teeth Side View
The shape of the teeth is similar
The CS bezel is so tight against the side of the case that there is almost no gap, as same as for blue yacht from other factories.
As can be seen from the second picture, the GM and CS below the bezel are different from GEN in terms of structure and polishing treatment. CLEAN is very close to GEN, then is VR. However, there is a problem with CLEAN in the section below the bezel mouth, there are very clear horizontal lines!
Bezel Digital View
All factories have done the edge kit lugs treatment of digits and sticks, but GM and CS are too smooth, CLEAN and VR are better! At least the difference with GEN will not be so big!
CS’s triangle is too small
The four factories are different in shape and distance control! Combining these two data, I think Clean and GM are better.
Stick side view
Compared with other factories, the CLEAN is the best one, it done well in stick shape, kit lugs and polishing!The other factories are slightly insufficient!
Luminous Filled View
The luminous filling of the stick is too smooth for GM and CS, the graininess of CLEAN and VR is very good, and the color of VR will be closer to GEN.
Oil Font View
On the whole, the font and flatness of CLEAN, VR, and GM are not bad, and the flatness of CS is slightly worse!
CLEAN done well in the blue yacht-master font, the color of font is close to GEN! The other three factories are a little darker!
Middle Axle View
The middle axle of CLEAN is most closest to GEN, Unfortunately, the flatness is too poor, and there are obvious welding marks.
The CLEAN’s second hand color is the most closest to GEN, then is VR, GM, CS is dark blue!
The CLEAN is still done best in rehaut font, but I think that its font R is a little too long! What do you think!
Calendar Font and Window Side View
The overall cross-sectional shape and the excess of the edges are slightly worse for VR, and the other three factories are not bad!
The color of the GEN window is a little gray, although it has a certain relationship with the long time weabezel, but real color of the GEN is not so white, it is more transparent, the color of the windows of the factory is partial white!
I won’t say much about the calendar font, Guys can compare for yourself!
Crown Side and Case Side View
There is no significant difference in the position of the endlink of the four factories.
However, the CLEAN assembly is better. As you can see from the first photo, the connection distance between the inner side and the strap is the best!
Solid Case Back View
Strap Detail View
CLEAN’s clasp is still very well done, the closure feels good, there is a certain sense of damping, and it does not feel stiff. The other three factories are a little worse.
Laser Marker and Luminous View
As we said in the blue yacht comparison, the CLEAN factory seems to have adjusted the graphics generation of the laser mark, to be honest, the laser punctuation is too dense, and the overall feeling is not as good as before, which is what I don’t understand!
The VR3235 movement used by CLEAN and CS, while the VR3135 movement used by VR and GM, the factory should be upgraded to 3235 movement later.
