  1. Past hour
  2. Think I'm going to go with the PAM 356 from Toro. He's also recommended the PAM 111 though
  3. For sure. The handwound panerais are generally way more reliable than, for example, an a2836 watch (in my experience). The 6497 is a very nice movement that feels much nicer than a miyota or Asian eta on the wind. Any chrono watch is going to add a greater risk of failure especially if you use the chrono without knowing how to use it properly (resetting without stopping, using between certain times, etc) - lots of info in the movements section will guide you in this department.

  4. Awesome! Does the added complication of the chrono add any issues? I've always gone with the mentality that simpler is perhaps better when it comes to rep movements.
  5. Mine are around 6.5 in and it fits fine. If you wanted something a bit smaller the new 682 from xf factory is 42mm, still quite chunky but if you wait a few weeks for the factory to update the lume then that's a potentially great choice. Otherwise there are lots of other pams on offer currently with loads of the dealers, especially by kw factory, so lots of options for you to consider. I had a h fac 26k that IMO fit my wrist fine. If you think you can pull it off then you can pull it off IMO [emoji1360] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I'm 'umming and ahing' about what model to get. I do like the Daylight. But I do have reasonably small wrists. So not sure if the buttons for the chrono add too much bulk. Also not sure whether to go black or brown strap. I'll probably get a rubber one too for more 'outdoor' usage.
  7. It's that right hand subdial. Don't bother with the box, you'll only end up selling it to buy more reps! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The sloppy hand is referring to the minute counter complication @3 sub-dial. Quite common.
  9. Today
  10. AHHHH, so you mean the hand doesn't always sit 'flush' on the markers? So, the equivalent of the minute hand landing half way between 44 and 45 minutes? Also looking at getting a box (love the Panerai box). Thinking AOOTime is the best option. Theirs appears to be the same as Toro's, as a fraction of the price
  11. Sloppy gear train by design, same on the Swiss version. I'll take two pics of it at its most extreme Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Currently in discussions with Toro via email. What do you mean by a 'wobbly hand'?
  14. Yep that's the one. Some of them have a very slightly wobbly right hand chrono hand which happens on most a7753 movements so check this out on QC just to make sure it only moves slightly. Mine moves ever so slightly and it's unnoticeable. It's a proper super rep otherwise with a decent movement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. You can link it.
  16. Yes, I have done it hundreds of times over the years, I'm a service provider in watchmaking as my day job, but unlike most, I do help out the replica watch communities, taking on work on high end replica watches too. Be aware AOOTime is not a trusted source here.
  17. Thanks for the tip mate. Think I've found it on their site. Not sure if I'm allowed to link to specific ones. But is it the "Pam 356O Noob Daylight"? that you were talking about?
  18. Toro has the 356 on offer at the moment, am absolute steal at that price Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. This sounds more interesting than I had imagined and again thanks for your input. Seems to me that you have done something like this before. What modifications would you recommend apart from my guessing to sand this 2836 spacer? This is what I like about forums like this, where people improvise & think outside the square. It is almost like solving a mathematical puzzle. To clarify what my aim is . A couple of years ago, I was was gifted an Alpha submariner which was a great everyday watch and was even great to swim in because it kept dry. During day light saving, I stupidly did not screw down the crown and somehow got water inside corroding the mvt and dial. Even though the watch was inexpensive , the case is still good and I have a spare eta submariner dial and DWO, but case will only accept 2824 otherwise an eta 2836 would have solved the situation
  21. A dial spacer from a 2836 would work modified. A TC movement holder depends on the inner mid-case construction, if its not gen spec it won't fit.
  22. Many thanks!!! So a dial spacer that comes for eta 2836 could not work as a dial washer if it can be sanded down to make it thinner if the problem would be thicknessl???? Or is it possible to buy a TC 2824 movement holder from somewhere as this is news to me. Never seen one Just wondering as It first time, I would be working with a 2824, being novice with this! thanks!!!
  23. So very gorgeous work Bart!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
