  1. most of the 21J watches are bulletproof and fine for work. i prefer the Tudor Black Bay as it flies under the radar compared to that watch brand with 'R' in the name everyone loves. If you like quartz, the Speedy Mark II is good for a chrono and the JLC Reverso is good for a dressy watch. but grab any $100 21j and you should be good.
  2. ^^^^ that dial is so nice. the tiny recessed subdials, the serifs in ''Daytona,'' the little lume balls....all very well done
  3. ^^^^ is this one of the new ones? Looks like a Yuki dial fitted?
  4. ^^^ I've never seen this watch with white lume! All the others I've seen have that bad fake yellow stuff. May I ask where you purchased the watch?
  5. such watches, much nice vintage
  6. what a watch! ETA inside?
  7. ^^^ wow, it looks better than the Yuki!
  8. Where'd you get that dial, Mr. Cordell!!!?? So nice.
  9. the king has returned. long live the king.
  10. ah--- sorry, the forums sometimes retreat into jargon. tc is thomas caddell, maker of insanely good rolex reps. dw just means datewheel!
  11. the DW is totally fixable, TC DWs are the answer as noted earlier. tho i would be more concerned with saving up cash for the Ferrari you need to own in order to make this rep believable
  12. ^^^ very good advice
  13. Nanuq, have you tried the modern Black Bay out? I feel like the black bezeled one with the red triangle has a lot of mojo. And honestly, I like the Black Bay sort of for similar reasons explored in that article... I like the Black Bay because it's a very good rep of a gen watch that I could actually buy. Most vintage Rollie stuff is just too expensive as gen for a lot of us younger guys to try and pull off. It's why I don't have a PN Daytona. I love the PN, think it might be the nicest-looking watch I've ever seen besides maybe vintage Pateks. But there's no way in the world, not even close, that i could get away with wearing a 50-100k watch.
  14. nice 5513! what are the specs?
  15. lol Jetmid. old school...
  16. This is a beautiful build man, I wish I could have pulled the trigger when those MBWs were available for a hot minute! Unique watch and look.
  17. reallllll nice. Yuki dial?
  18. there's real SevenFriday watches for sale on eBay, from dealers who have hundreds and or thousands of positive transactions. why you are dealing with a guy who has no feedback when other dealers are available I will never know. local or not. if i was you, either buy gen at an AD or from a vendor that has a solid reputation...or hit up the TDs for a rep. the reps aren't that different from gen. some sloppy casework sometimes on the reps and or a different color fonts/diff materials/slightly diff engravings etc. depending on the model. none are glaring ''oh my God thats a fake watch'' tells. also check out Jomashop, Authentic Watches, and Ashford. a lot of that eBay stuff is grey market, especially Baume + Mercier, SF, Michael Kors, Citizen etc. depending on the brand this means sometimes no warranty, or no serial #, but sometimes you can save even up into the 4 figures on price. I've personally bought a couple gens this way.
  19. If I was you, I would buy a Cartel Tudor to start with. Get an ETA version. You can replace the stock dial with a Yuki dial for around 200 USD...there's a couple options depending on what look you want. You can use your jewelry skills to drill out the case for gen-spec springbars, or age an insert with bleach. Put a rafflestime casback on and ding up the watch a little bit, and it'll be decent. Yes, you could spring for a Yuki/Phong case, and put a real Tudor ETA in it...or get a real dial...but those are 4-figure builds...
  20. i was wondering b/c the font size of most Yuki dials is larger than yours. Yours looks really nice!
  21. Dang, is this a stock model from one of our TDs? The dial looks nice.
  22. Cartel with Yuki dial?
  23. when I want to see a pic or read info about really well-done vintage Rolex and Tudor builds, I come here. cheers to the many members here who always make the wristies threads and Rolex subforum worth reading. one day i'll have one worth showing!
  24. Jesus man, this is really nice. What are the specs on this bad boy?
  25. I would advise the OP to follow the crowd and source a modder. one can also buy full gold or 18K/ss aftermarket bracelets instead of getting what may be dodgy quality from the dealers. then install a Rollie clasp on the bracelet, at least then you know you have real 18K on your wrist. Aftermarket or Gen full 18K + gen dial = cant get much better than that
