  6. HI mate... Nothing complicated to be honest. The inspiration to do this build came when a member on Repgeek wanted to sell the case following an abandoned project. So I purchased it and started looking for the dial for Seiko, without taking the ones now emblazoned on many sites. Luckily I found it on Raffles Dial (with three variants of which one is now sold out) and finally I purchased an NH38 movement built by TMI by Seiko. I wanted to make a "sword" choice for the hands, respecting the dial indices a bit. So yesterday I received the strap (from ALI) which I wanted to adapt to the gray shade of the dial.

  8. Best thing to do is to choose images of a 5517 gen that you like and ask your watchmaker to try and match the appearance. Rep top, gen below:

  9. Hi everyone. I know it's been some years since my last posting, but I wanted to check in to let everyone know that LHOOQ is still alive, healthy, and still in possession of all of his beloved project watches. Maybe I'm being an egomaniac, or maybe I know that this is a pretty tight-knit community of good, helpful people. I was spurred to write this post due to certain recent events. Recently someone recognized the dial on one of my few Panerais, bolstering my belief that the rep crowd is so much keener-eyed than your average WIS. He pointed out that he was almost certain that my dial was one of a small run produced by one legendary German Paneristi. It was nice to chat about this after we'd established our rep bona fides to each other, but then I learned that the German in question, Rolli, had died five years ago. And I felt terrible. Rolf wasn't a close friend, but we had exchanged many messages in the past and I always appreciated his rigorous, crabby pursuit of the perfect finish, the perfect lume mix. Who else have we lost, and who else will we lose, and never find out about? Two unfinished items pulled me back in: 1) To fix a jmb-cased 1016 project that has never quite worked right ever since I took it to my watchsmith in the Philippines for assembly, and 2) To finish a Daytona project that really started 12 years ago. (80% of the parts were just sitting in a drawer.) I couldn't have done either of these without good old alligoat, who took those parts to the right people, and even tossed in a few from his own collection. (BIG parts, at that!) And that's why I have this lovely black-dialed 6239 sitting in the pile. I can't promise a full-on return to the rep world, or that I'll be especially active on the forums again, but I will do my best to respond to PMs. Especially now that my access to the original LHOOQ account is borked, making my stuffed inbox irrelevant! Quick thank-yous and hellos to the following: alligoat: I owe him at least a couple of steak dinners by now! jmb: He smoked me a brisket! Unfortunately my current job doesn't take me to Texas as often as my last one. Chiman12: Met him once all too briefly in Calgary so many years ago. The MBW 5512 that prepared for me still gets a lot of praise, and unsolicited offers. Akira: Spent an afternoon with him in Arnhem last summer. I would have gone to see him in Germany, but that was a bridge too far. (No, really, we were in Arnhem.) Donerix: I'd love to catch up with this strapping man of mystery again! ubiquitous: My original inspiration for all this extravagant foolishness. And a top guy. There are so many others. Please don't be upset if I forgot to mention you here.

  10. Definitely not a scam site as I have dealt with them twice last year. First purchase I made was 3 Rolex bracelets, 2 men and 1 ladies. I received the goods but the engraving on the mens clasps were incorrect. Instead of 'Steelinox' they were marked 'Steelbox' or something along those lines. I contacted the owner of the site (Len) and he asked me to return so he could swap. Unfortunately he couldn't swap for any of the gents bracelets as they all had the same error so I ended up exchanging for a few box sets with papers. He was also nice enough to send me the box sets before he received the returned items. I made another purchase a few months later this time for 6 bracelets but before making payment I asked him to confirm they had the correct engraving this time. I received my order as described no more than a week later. When it comes to purchasing a complete watch, I think I will stick to the trusted dealers because most of the watches on his site seem to be of poor quality based on the images I've seen.
