    A3135 or .......?

    Hi there, it looks like the SA3135 to me, so not the 'Yuki' SH3135 movement. There seems to be various views about both movements but if serviced properly I've had one of these movements and it was very reliable.

    Rolex 1655 Genuine Vs Replica Pics

    Hi There, ok first things first the 1655 is one of the reps that need a lot of effort to get close to Gen but here's a suggestions list for you....all of which can be done by Ado if you ask him nicely who has previously done this for me. He has a section on the forum Case re lathed to create correct CG swoop, and reduce the case size on the other side, drilled lug holes for 2mm spring pins Replace bezel for correct flat 4 - big give a way on the rep, Ebay normally has a few on there rubyswatch.com 1655 dial - best one out there Tiger concept hand set - correct length hour and minute plus the best 24hr orange hand mod the 2836 movement so the 24hr hand isn't adjustable as per the gen 1575 movement cartel 7836 folded bracelet Sternkreuz T127 plexi Cheers DH

    Nice AM 1675 dial required

    Good morning guys, can anyone help me please? It appears that the glut of quite nice aftermarket dials seem to have disappeared from Ebay??? Can anyone hook me up with tony or another source for a nice 1675 dial. greatly appreciated DH
  12. One of these! I was Bored so fancied messing about with my 16610. Always preferred the look of the GMT models so thought I'd give it a go. I no not one for the purists but hey ho

    Planing Steve McQueen 1655 Project

    Yep its a great base for one of these builds. You just need to make sure that you buy a 2mm pinion size 24hr hand for the GMT parts NOT the 1.8mm hand Just to mention that the cartel dial in the rep you've bought actually has a very good version of the mk6 Beyeler dial, the dial you've bought is a mk3 rail dial, which should have T SWISS T at the bottom of the dial so not quite right. Might be worth sticking with the cartel one.

    The cartel case needs some serious metal removal to get it close to the gen. If you touch base with Ado who has his own section on the forum here he may be able to help you out. He has a precision engineering company and did a fantastic job on one of my previous 1655 builds. Actually you might also want to consider going the 2846 slow beat route and see if helenarou can still supply the GMT parts. You will need to remove the adjustable gmt hand function to make it as close to the gen 1575 movement. Good luck with the bu
