    Those are very high grade IMHO. You can find some cheaper on the bay http://globalaircrafttool.com/25x35hssspecialmetrichandtap.aspx Just check your measurements twice as those taps are never cheap (unless you buy some chinese) so you really want to buy the accurate at first.

    Wristies - thread consolidation?

    I found some basketweave leather and made a "Singer-style" strap for my favorite driver's watch: Liked it a lot so I made some more:

    Is more expensive always better?

    Haha my hardcore lifting days are long gone Nanuq. I'm a slim fit guy these days.

    Well yeah, and you'd need 8 more links to get it around your Popeye like forearms. [emoji1377][emoji1377]

    I paid 80 Euros for this YM with Asian 21J movement back in the day (from Narikaa). This was the REAL Noobfactory version which was only ever surpassed by the WM9 version. But this was awesome rep. I'd probably still have it but I never cared for the YM personally.

    Oh well, my current collection right now is a watch offered by the RWG community and another by one member of RWG Monsieur By-Tor 😍 My life has been a rollercoaster, due to my inability to cope with it, so I sold all the gens, the reps and the modified ones too...(some I could not sell as they are not worth the trouble to fix for the recipient though). As we speak, one is in a good friend's hands to fit some parts I still had around. The virus of collecting more is gone anyway. Wearing the gifts is another story: gratitude to be able to wear the design I like (Rolex 5513) and feel the kindness behind it ❤️ Priceless ! Be well!

    To franken or to modify

    I identify with your post! I've been trying to get as close to the gen as possible...to finally buy the gen...to come back to the idea that I should ask myself what is it that I like in the model. Answer: I like the model 🤣 In short: why the hell would I modify anything if I like this or that design? And yes, why wouldn't you alter a model to have something different? Makes sense to me. My grail would be a white Daytona with date @4 by the way 😄
  22. I’ve been on the forums for a few years now and owned most of my desired watches (most but not all). Whilst I’ve fallen into the same trap as many here - chasing the perfection of the gen, I sometimes get the bug to do it differently. Hence, I like to change some of my watches away from the manufacturers specification to something that I desire. I’d say there is no right or wrong here, gen owners do it too, but it’s not something I often see on the forums. Why is that? Is it because the OEM spec gen is the grail? My rep modded Seamaster GMT - built by @SSTEEL using a PO bezel and a Parnis insert. I may go back to the lollipop second hand though. Another modded away from gen spec by @SSTEEL A Seamaster Chrono withblack date wheel, stainless clock hands and red chronograph hands. 2XAR and a ceramic insert fish it off for me. And yet another Micky build. A closed factory case with a gen relumed Omega dial, cut PO second hand 2XAR, PO bezel and insert. My favourite watch still. Franken not modded? Built to OEM spec by Micky using gen relumed dial and hands, gen bezel and insert too along with profsteve’s 2XAR on the crystal. Really pops. Anyone one else do anything similar?
