  1. Who would pay that kind of prices for reps? $658 is a laughable price for a Chinese knockoff. You can get a nice used vintage Omega for that kind of money. Personally, I just stopped buying them. They are fun watches for $200 or $300 but that's where the limit is (for me). Reps are fun but they have no real value and even finding someone who services rep Rolexes can be tough. And while some of the reps are very accurate they will never have the details of a gen.

  3. Ladies and Gentlemen - I am in love with this piece!!! I might opt for the gen in time (gotta save up like a normal person lol) but wondering if anyone has seen or expects a quality rep? https://monochrome-watches.com/tudor-black-bay-fifty-eight-39mm-79030n-review-price/ Seems like everyone is focusing on the boring new Rolex 39mm models....and this fake 904L steel. Lame. Do you guys like it?

  4. I just spent $658 usd for a 904l 116520. As much as i believe that sanity should kick in at certain price points (especially for franken projects), i am willing to pay that much for the one-of-its-kind 4130 clone movement - it's a milestone and it's unique to everything that i have ever owned. Also, the feedback received from RWI's watchmakers is very positive so far, and not to mention, $658 is just a small percentage of the overly-hyped market price of the gen equivalent. People used to pay similar prices for WM9 and TC too

  5. Yeah the prices have gotten ridiculous! I would say the value is in owning for your pleasure and when you’re bored flip it. So @By-Tor are you officially out of the rep game? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. "I'm not sure how good Yuki's cases are. check them out, ask around." The two cases (5512/5513) I got from Yuki in May 2014 were as good as any I have seen. They are no longer shown on their website but a few other sellers will have similar cases. Read in the rolex section to see who has what. As for 1520 parts...almost all the parts are the same for 1520, 1530, 1560, 1570 except for the escapement parts. Escapement = balance wheel, hairspring, pallet fork, escape wheel, and a few others. Get a rolex parts list for 1530 base movements or for the 1520 and see what you
