  2. @hologramet will advise you to tone it down a little if you want to get buyers. Your knowledge and skills are undisputed but your conditions come across as somewhat harsh (though as a modder I do get what you mean) Go easy, your filtering will work automatically based on which member you choose to respond to.

  4. Well it looks like the last time I visited was 2016. Nice to see there are some (many) older members still around. Hi to many old friends. It's been a long time since purchasing anything from TD here, but I have many wonderful memories of spending time over the years on this great forum. Ciao, for now !

  5. OH HOLO for all your expertise and ability to get parts and put them together properly you fail in only one category. Walk/talk softly like I do, if I had half your ability I'd be so confident I'd let the blows fall off my amour of ability and knowledge like a lite rain. Just a bit of advise from MOAB, relax you know your stuff .

  6. I've have a cartel '1655' for a few years and it always struck me as being very well made with an interior case clamp groove, brass spacer, good bezel numbers, oem spec crystal neck and case tube threads, good lug hole centering, rounded case back bulge etc. It came with a DG 3804 and above average dial and average foldoyster bracelet. I drilled the lug holes out and that was as far as it went until a while back. Also have a Phong '1655' case and to be honest, there is not a whole lot of difference when comparing the two except the high $$ case has much better case back and lug

  9. Some days ago a member here asked me if I would make a Black Lung for his Seiko Prospex ... so I started working on the design as the one I already made was for an ETA dial While doing that I realized that I had made a BIG mistake while designing the first version of that dial On almost all the SUB 300 T, including the early Seamasters : - the 5mn marks "touch" the rehaut - there are 1 to 3 tiny marks between the lumed 15mn marks and the rehaut - there are 3 tiny marks between the date window and the rehaut If you look closer at the SUB 300 Black Lung (no T) dials you can notice tha

  14. I got your text. Typically when using a pipan dial, the first thing to ck is the position of the stem in the case tube. Be sure it's centered. Mount the movement in the case the way it will be when you're finished. You can raise or lower the movement with movement ring. Once that's done you can work on the hand height. Typically the long post hands are shorter in length than the standard hands, You will probably need to change the cannon pinon. I'm sure you've seen references to an H4. eta also makes an H5 which is usually what you need for a 4 digit build. You will need to change the hour whe

  16. Holo That is good spirit from you! Like I said, as a modder, I totally understand your intention of putting up the harsh barrier to filter off the noobs. Sometimes in this hobby its totally necessary! With the adjustment of your post, there is no reason why anyone should start picking on your attitude again. Let me clean up your thread and lets start afresh. Thank you also for being one of the guys on the frontline helping others. I will make sure that your time here is as pleasant as possible sir. Please, allow me to clean up your thread includin

  17. PALAWAÏ SUB 300 T ... Divinstar hommage "Adopt a Dive Site" logotype Some weeks after I finished the first SUB 300 T dial my elder son saw it and asked me if I could make a Doxa hommage based on a Seiko turtle. I ordered a blank NH35 dial from a Seiko parts website, measured the date window dimensions and position and modified the general dial design so that it could fit the dial plate. Then I worked on the "name" and "logotype" ... Name : Around his 20ies my son had an "ephemeral" surf shop ... The shop name was "Palawai" ... from Palavas in south of France, where his shop was base

  20. "I’m in the middle of a 2 year long quest to build a 1655." I started on mine in mid 2011 when I got the Phong case and a rlx 1575 in a trade with a member. The movement had about half of the nos parts with it to make a GMT and it took 5 or 6 years to find the rest of the parts at a reasonable price. By then I had basically lost interest and the project is still in a box. When I got the case and movement in 2011 the rlx 1575 also had the 'shortcut' GMT conversion parts with it and this is where they came from. I had another 1575 and put the shortcut parts in it to make a GMT af

  22. Hi JDS, I think we came to the conclusion that sunlight bleaches the dial so the indices and hands get whiter. Sometimes the dial will change color too, losing pigment so it goes from black to brown. But the hour plots should get whiter with more sun.

  26. My two favorite sapphire rolex watches are the 16800 and 16750. There is one strict requirement though: They must have printed dial markers and yours does. Two thumbs up!

  28. my tip is dont bleach at all. use Bergeon ultrafine abrasive block 5444A. Never use sandpaper. Mount the insert in a bezel on a watch. (Ye this will also soften the bezel teeth a little bit, if this is a problem use a separate bezel). The bezel protects the external border (If you can create a recessed fit before starting. and the plexi protects the internal border. Put more pressure on the outer parts. Slowly. Slowly. Slowly. When done, try adding heat with a stormlighter with circular moves. As soon as you start seeing brown tones. Stop. ThIs removes most of
