  1. 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.
  2. Keeping my beady eye on the Titus Calypsomatic watches, only a matter of time with a lot of these lovely old classic divers watches. Oh the heady days days when i was buying 5513 Submariners in 1992 for 500 quid.
  3. i saw this as well, what a fantastic example of Karma
  4. I remember Steve Mulholland, he resembled a pit bull terrier that wanted to kill you if memory serves me right. Not a nice man at all.
  5. Just wanted to share this one with you, if you've been on here a fair amount of time then you'll remember when these was released. Can't remember what factory made it but it was in the good old days when some of the early reps were so close to the gens it was scary. A nice genuine Swiss eta 7750 lurking in mine.
  6. Here you go, correct 8 shape connecting links. You should be able to remove the last rivet to dissemble it to get the connector. https://www.ebay.com/itm/20MM-OLD-STYLE-SOLID-STEEL-RIVET-OYSTER-BAND-BRACELET-FOR-36MM-EXPLORER-WATCH/352937772375?hash=item522cbb0557:g:Bo0AAOSwIJdbgyq7
  7. Yep thats my aim as well, good job.
  8. While busy at work 😀 I decided to follow up on a post i saw a while ago on one of the other forums. The general opinion on the Cartel 93150 bracelet was that the connecting endlinks were not right and should be the classic figure of 8 shape. It also has the round top 3's which we now know were made by Rolex for a short period around 1995. It now appears that the connecting links on the Cartel 93150 are in fact based on a much later Gen 93150 as seen for sale on Chrono24.com. Please see pics attached.... So in conclusion, If you have the patience (I'm currently attempting it) you can replace the connecting links with some from numerous aftermarket bracelets with the correct figure of 8 links(Ebay rivet ones) And replace the fliplock clasp with one dating from 1995 you will have a very nice correctly spec 93150. The round 3's are sadly only relivant to around 1995, and the later V shaped links only feature on the much later 93150 bracelets. Hope that may help with any future builds. Cheers DH

    Hello Mate nice to see you again. Hope lives treating you well M
  11. Lovely mate, congrats on a special build.
  12. Can't wait to see the end result mate, cousins UK sell a gen spec click spring. Not sure on the endlinks. One thing to remember if your using the JF case. The drilled holes have to follow the inside holes as a guide, so you may have to slightly alter any endlink to fit the case. Hope that makes sense. Cheers
  13. Morning Dutch, The ST case takes the SH movement no problem, not sure about the rehaut depth on it though, as its a 16610 replacement. Yes you'd have to add chamfers. The JF 16610LN(not the LV) has a shorter rehaut, thats why i used it for my 16800 build. In terms of putting it all together then I'd suggest you contact Ado(Adrian) directly, he has his own modding section on here. He's based here in the UK. He is also known very well over on rwi. for his lug holes16600 builds. He can do verything down to serving the movement, build it. Case work etc The bloke in my eyes is a bloody genius Hope that helps
