    We at the RWG command center would like our members to know we have things well under control. We are prepared for a wide variety of catastrophes, some better than others.

    Long time member and trusted Vendor here. For quite a while now we have been offering Quality repair of replica watches and many RWG members are happy customers. We are located in Southern California and since all non-essential business here has been ordered to shut down due to the COVID-19 epidemic, our mall location has been closed to the public. This has deprived us of our retail and walk-in business, but our repair facility has been allowed to stay active otherwise. As about half of our total business is internet based, including replica repairs, our capacity has effectively doubled. This will have the effect of shortening lead times on repairs. In addition we are also offering significant discounts on most things. I can of course be contacted through our messaging system and usually reply withing 24 hours. Let us know if we can help. Regards, Mike Rion

    What were they thinking? https://www.rolex.com/?ef_id=Cj0KCQjw9tbzBRDVARIsAMBplx8uAI9euLyIluJ3jkSgbM1stfY5UNHvBmGP8HXCi_QIrAqM0wUqV3oaAmWBEALw_wcB:G:s&s_kwcid=AL!141!3!407365018971!e!!g!!rolex I hate everything about it from crowding a dial that was always so simplistic to the alternating sizes of the hour markings to the 2 tone seconds hand. It's f*ckery in every way. Rant over...

    State of emergency and under curfew since midnight for the first 14 days, extension and more restrictions almost certain. Last chance for Europe to get this right before the numbers get exponential by the end of the month and totally out of control by mid -April. Despite high taxation and social security contributions no government prepared for anything in the last 15 years while there was time and money available. No contingency plans, no hospital capacity, no stocks. The basics are missing: for over a week there are no desinfectants at all available, no sterilium, no isopropyl alcohol until mid-april - across Europe. Local media advise that Covid-19 is airborne for 3 hours and sticks to surfaces like metal and plastic for 6 hours up to 3 days. But there are no means to desinfect things available any more - ridiculous. That thing simply is too contagious. Long cues before supermarkets as only few people may enter, one at a time. No family-shopping. You get some measly plastic gloves when entering. Italian doctors report quite sudden respiratory breakdown within one day and send over-eighties or people with other pre-conditions home to die as they have to decide who gets treatment or not. Too many people over here love their freedom too much and lack the self-discipline or respect for the elderly. Too much propaganda of "it´s like the flu" beforehand - which it isn´t. For the time being, I very much doubt Europe will be able to handle this as the asian countries seem to have done successfully. Too many regional differences in the handling. So much criticism over harsh measures from here and everybody let 6 weeks pass with open borders without coming up with a better plan. Now they try to do the same, too little, too late and with too many exceptions - and no desinfectants.

    An emotional evening here in Central London last night with the people supporting the Clap For Carers campaign. Thousands of people countrywide out the front of their houses, clapping and cheering in unison in support of our health service staff. Great support & a welcome relief from all the negativity at the moment!

    "Covid-19 is airborne for 3 hours and sticks to surfaces like metal and plastic for 6 hours up to 3 days" we are getting different info here in the states much less ominous I hope your guys are wrong because if that's he case we are truly f**ked .

    I thought i'd pop into the local after work on Friday night expecting things to be very quiet in there. Nope, packed to the rafters with drunk British people singing and drinking Gin. What i do find more terrifying is the social media driven madness, especially when all of the producers that supply the supermarkets are saying we are perfectly capable of supplying the demand for bog roll. Bloody ridiculous.

    This whole collective mass psychosis scared me more than the virus, which is just a flu on Red Bull. If people act like this for nothing. It will be Marshall Law and World War III when some virus that is actually ”dangerous” comes around. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk

    The reason for the toilet paper shortage is that one person coughs and everyone around them sh*ts themselves. In Brazil now for a few weeks. The locals have it right; Coronavirus is killed by alcohol so stay drunk.

    I’ve just wrapped up (for now) another one of my ongoing projects - a 1680 Red Submariner. Inspired by some of the mid-70’s versions I’ve seen on Chrono24, etc I imagine this was a fairly well care-for watch serviced several times with a replacement, service dial and insert. Case isn’t too beat up and isn’t over-polished. The specs on the project: - JK Factory Case, Caseback, 93250 Bracelet, Open 6/9 Datewheel and Dial (purchased from TrustyTime) - Clark’s 25-127 Crystal - WSO Bezel Assembly - Athaya 702 Tube and Crown - WSO 580 Endlinks - Sellita SW-200-1 Movement - Raffle’s Time Hand Set I relumed the hand set, pearl, and dial to match. Pearl was lumed then finished with clear coat of binder for durability and gloss. Like my other vintage project, I went for a vintage tone lume a high-intensity, green glow. Insert has been very lightly bleached, just enough to eliminate the gloss finish. Crown guards have been squared off in the front, case was lightly aged via a tumble in a bag of screws, all exposed edges were eased, and case was repolished. Athaya tube installed with Blue Loctite and tube hole countersunk to ensure tight fit of crown when screwed down. SW200-1 was purchased from a fellow member but needed the keyless works to be repaired. I repaired the keyless works then installed H5 second wheel, minute cannon, and hour cannon along with a date wheel from an ETA2836-2. Dial was fitted with a slightly thicker dial spacer. This modification allowed me to fit the slimmer SW200-1 into a case designed for an ETA2836-2 while maintaining stem alignment. Everything has been installed as friction fit, gaskets sealed and siliconed. Bracelet has been minimally aged. Sometime in the future I will likely swap out the DW Overlay and Dial for better quality. Working with a Ruby’s Watch dial on my 1675 project, the quality difference is super obvious. I should also get around to doing a water resistance test - I’d like to know how water resistant I’ve built this. I honestly worry the most about the crown tube since I countersunk the top edge but otherwise feel good about things. Here’s some pics, thanks for looking!

    All of the off the shelf vintage Daytona's are rubbish. The only 2 worthwhile options are... A. Lookout for an old 7750 based DW Daytona to come up for sale. B, Sell a kidney and pick up a V72 based Daytona. Both types come up for sale occasionally and range from 'not cheap' through to 'big money' If you want a good off the shelf Daytona then go for a modern model.

    I used Mary's 7836 and WSO's 580 endlinks. Good combination for not a lot of $$$.

    Yes, I bought an alpha chronograph from a U. K seller and I thought it had better quality control than the replicas sold from our friendly rep suppliers. It is the same sh!& as all the seagull clones . The pusher stuffed up exactly a year after the warranty expired. It is an L shaped piece which pushes the hammer part to reset the centre second to zero. The bottom L part broke off and of all places it fell into the pallet fork dislodging one of the jewels which has put it into suspended animation! Wished there was a genuine eta version of if and what I mean is a better quality control product. I bought a replacement from cousins but seems to stop after a couple of hours especially when engaging the chrono function! These also have a problem with the keyless works as the part that holds in the stem seems to have a weak point or a design fault or quality material fault that cause the stem to fall out all the time. Not sure which is which of these it is, but a hassle free quartz substitute for the dial would be the solution!

    Has anyone been able to assemble a Heuer Monaco with an actual chronograph movement Picked up a nice cheapy with a good case and fake chrono I can get a gen dial but the actual movement is supposed to be a 2892 with a depraz module Kind of pricy so what do the experts here think?
