  1. Hey guys. Black Bay rep from maybe 2014? or 2015.... Went swimming in some coolish salt water, then in the hot sun noticed a dried water spot on the inside of the watch on the [censored] around the 3 o clock position. Case back gasket was greased prior, crown was screwed down and I believe I even greased the gasket there as well. Is this a failure of the Nylon crystal gasket? Or a crown tube? Or something else? It seems to be common to reps, as my 14270 rep also has the same kind of spot in the same place but didn't come with me on this particular trip where the black bay developed this dried water spot. thanks
  2. Thanks so much for the info. I seem to find 1570 date movements for sale quite readily and for less than 1520's I have all the parts required to build a franken 5513 but still shopping for the correct movement. You've pointed out some differences in the 1570 date movement that might be more trouble than it's worth to convert for use in a no date 5513 case. so the answer is either a 1520 or a 1570 that came from a no date watch in the first place as being the best fit for use in a 5513?
  3. How easy is it to convert a Rolex cal. 1570 with date parts (from an oyster perpetual) for use as a 5513 cal 1520 movement? Am I correct in thinking just remove the date mech parts and change the engraved 1570 bridge to 1520 (if you really want consistency) and you're good to go... or are there differences in cal. measurements that make this untenable? I think hand sizes and dial feet holes are the same... I think the balance wheel is slightly different though (inclusion of weights) but the beat is the same.
  4. first thing I noticed was how well the date wheel looked. usually too bold, but that looks more than decent stock.
  5. looks good. reps are amazing these days out of the box.
  6. never really understood the point of a functional he valve on a rep build. (99% gen franken builds excluded, of course :D) they're expensive, complicated, potential for leakage. just sand the existing one with 2000grit to give it some contrast between the case and valve and don't worry about it.
  7. I think someone may have made one of these alignment tools before. I have a pic but no file for it.
