    I already posted on the other thread, but it kind of fits better here. Copy & paste An old and tested piece of advice is to find a genuine watch online that you particularly like and copy it. Decisions: Pre 1967 with gilt dial or later white dial print Pointed crown guards or rounded only applies on an early version domed or flatter service crystal replacement crown? leather, NATO or bracelet. If you are keeping the bracelet, take it off the watch and drop it in baby oil for 24 hours How much, if at all do you want to age the bezel Once you know what you are shooting at, we can help with suppliers and links to tutorials, guides, inspiration

    Noob Hulk insert has never been great, anyone know anything about the one from Loco yet?

    Are you saying in general the colour or that the rep colour wrong?

    Dark green insert is hideous.

    Hi guys, here I have my 5513, I’d just like a point in the right direction in terms of what I should do first and the most important things to take me in the right direction, potential gen mods but good generic will be more cost effective of course,

    Cheers bro, I know I can see this costing me, I’ve got a Swiss eta from an oris ready to go in, that’s as far as I’ve got 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
  13. Glad it worked out for you @Jack1993. Start a build thread once you are under way. Oh and welcome to the money pit😂😂😂

    Hommage to the next Phillip's Auction, and the beautiful 6200 to be sold there, here is my interpretation of 6200:

    Is it a Trusty (Time!) Scottish arm by chance?
  19. I paid $800 for a trashed 78360 a couple of months ago with 580 end links. The blade was damaged, so I have a yuki blade and clasp on it. [censored] is too expensive, should be perfect at these prices!

    Last two cartel subs I received had the white gasket you are talking about. It’s meant to take up the extra space between the crystal and the retaining ring. Basically, the crystal is too small. I’d measure the ID diameter of the retaining ring and then order a PA crystal that Jackflash mentioned. There are a couple of different sizes to pick from. Worst case is you have to glue the crystal in place. I ended up doing that on mine because the bezel assembly plus crystal kept popping off. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  24. Gotcha. So you’d have no major concern with these cg’s? They’re shape-able, that is? ...I’m asking in an effort to determine whether I should keep the watch or send it back... leaning towards keeping it as I intend to modify it anyway. crystal slid right out, btw. All the pieces desribed are there, plus a really thin white plastic spacer. Ever seen that? Super brittle.

    Woo hooooo!! Now that's a manly arm. The pink is the finishing touch [emoji12]

    No rest for an RWG crew member. I’m spending my Sunday evening trying to keep tabs on where the Travelling Watch is. Can anyone help me out? Anyone recognise this arm?
