Which one do you like better & why? The Watch Six is thinner, horsehide, with no reinforced mouth. The VMII is thicker with reinforced mouth for reholstering. I am looking for options for my Glock 26. Thanks!

Versa Max II
I voted for the VMII. However, I'd look hard at the TT Gunleather more affordable version of it that will ship in 3-4 weeks instead of 6 months. TT GunLeather High Quality Leather Gun Holsters
That's what I think.
The keys to winning a gunfight are first to bring a gun and secondly to take your time, quickly.
Always remember that if your opponent is within range, so are you.

I have 2 Watch 6's and I think it would be better because of comfort.
We all want the thinnest setup possible and this gives you that.
It's made as well as the Versa just no reinforced mouth.
We're not taking it out 50 times a day so reholstering is a non issue.
One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.

VM-II because of the reinforced opening that allows one handed re-holstering.
The VM-II is horsehide on the side against your body which is the only place you really need it.

I have both, and consider the Watch 6 slightly more comfortable because of the unsupported mouth. I've stated in many posts that the majority of us holster the weapon in the morning, and remove it at night. No need for a reinforced opening. However, I've found the VM2 to be a blessing when I go to the bathroom, or need to discreetly tuck in my undergarments. I simply draw, and set my pistol wherever it's secure, and do my business. It's very nice to be able to do a one-hand reinsertion. I carry a 1911, and find the difference in thickness to be minimal. In my huge holster drawer, for an IWB, I'd definately go with the VM2. It also gives you the option of competitive shooting.
I too have both. Common sense tells me that since the Watch Six is thinner, it should be the more comfortable one. But it's not in my opinion. I really can't explain it but whenever I wear my VMII G26, I would always tell myself "MAN, THIS JUST FEELS RIGHT!!"
Watch Six - G26
I need to take a picture of my VMII with the G26 but here's another one with my 442
VM2 is my first and only choice for IWB.
