  3. Easy way of putting a date wheel overlay

    Hi and thanks for that. I don't put blue tack on top of the DWO itself, but 2 or 3 very fine strands (or should I say fibre thin) underneath the DWO metal shiny part and place it directly onto the movement datewheel. It is more to just hold it in place so that I can manipulate it while placing the dial over it while turning the quickset to make sure digits are all showing evenly in the date window of the dial. Once I am happy with this, I remove dial and mark with a fine marker of both mating DWO & date wheel so that I can remove the blue tack and match them after putting 4 small dots of adhesive so that it is easy to remove at service time. Just like dummy shaft like when replacing the clutch in the car. There isn't enough blue tack to be seen without a loupe, and if left there, it is between the DWO and the datewheel of the mvt. The silver metal piece should hopefully be of some protection. I have tried slow setting epoxy but I wasn't good at the results. My lack of skills was the problem!

  5. Easy way of putting a date wheel overlay

    Couple of thoughts... I wouldn't leave blu-tack on the date wheel overlay. It contains oil that could eventually stain the over lay. Instead of superglue, use a 5 minute epoxy. It will give you a bit of manipulation to line up

  7. Thank you S for the kind review and nice pictures. I appreciate your patience during the process, our detailed communication and the fact that you never once rushed me to finish the watch for you. You are welcome back anytime. L

  9. Isnt this forum the best?

    Fox, I didn't intend my post as a rebuke. More of a statement of purpose. The early days of TRC and RWG (original) were the Wild West at times and we all had a dig at each other dozens of times. That's still welcome here and I've been on the receiving end myself more times than you can shake a stick at. We're all big boys and know when jesting takes on a sharp edge. I figure I'll never say anything here that I wouldn't say to someone's face... that works for me. In the meantime, who's got the best Sub?

    That is true Mike, good point. And I’m not looking to start or participate in a Witch Hunt (God knows, life is to short for that). I just wouldn’t want anyone getting the wrong impression about how people are treated next door. I’ve been lucky enough to be a member there since 2012 and have never had any bad dealings with anyone (I even managed to never get a hard time from Baldrick, which was a feat in itself). I treat others how I expect to be treated, according to how I have behaved or have been perceived to behave. I take both your (and Nanuq’s) rebuke on the chin if you believe I have acted or spoken out of turn (I am big, old and ugly enough to take responsibility for myself and answer accordingly). It can be a little rough at .bz but we look after each other and if someone or something walks like a duck, quacks like a duck... it’s usually a duck... Anyway gentlemen, thanks and have a good week ahead.

    Yepp...one has to be careful! We had a bit of snow too in Germany today ...sent with wooden drums via Tupperware.

    I found you do have to be careful when it's cold out. My boy wanted to be like me and walk barefoot on the ice so he tried it, but stepped on some rock salt I'd thrown out. That stuck to his feet and he got frostbit several places. Same with the dog, you can't let them walk in salt before you go out in the snow.

    Well said Mike. Civilized societies did away with lynch mobs awhile back, in favor of evidence, impartial adjudication and hopes of correction and restoration. "Off with his Head" is a thing of the past where mature people rub elbows. Every one of us has skeletons in our closet, and we've all received forgiveness when we didn't deserve it. Personally, I'm grateful for that. It compels me to extend forgiveness to others whenever possible. I see a lot of people doing that here, and that builds strong communities. That is what makes this place great.

    Fox, maybe they just read you do not have to be a member here to read most areas. Could be could not but we as mods choose not to pursue it further at this time if we did it would be done quietly behind the scenes in RWGcc style no witch hunts and we ain't starting one now. Rush you are correct and rest assured I know the facts/details from Greg and TB, we have discussed this at length a matter of fact quite recently. Look guys it is really different here for better or worse well that is a matter of opinion but we believe in second chances in some cases and the rule of law not the mob. I will not re-adjudicate these cases here in open thread (that's for sure) nor in PM unless new info warrants it . As of a week or two ago neither Greg nor TB had anything new so at this time these matters are closed.
  16. Monaco Grand Prix

    I've been looking for a rep of the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre Monaco Grand Prix, CAR2A83. I've found several of the earlier versions, but I'm looking for the 2014 version with the black dial, vertical stripes and a red pinstripe. Anyone know of a TD that carries one of these?

  25. Any barefoot walker around here?

    I understand where you are coming from! here it is illegal to drive a car without footwear! There are certain places where you are not even allowed admittance without proper footwear. Any injuries to feet not safely covered receive no compensation from insurance companies especially in shopping centres! There was a case like that here not long ago!

    Who is bashing? we are all free to do as we please and how and what we find right for us!. You began a thread about "any barefooted walker around here?" And we are all having our say! Relax!!
