  1. Very nice piece Sir, good luck with the sale.
  2. Yes it will need servicing, but what i'd always bear in mind is if you want this to be a keeper then the cost of a service is well worth it. Also consider installing a gen auto wind module.
  3. Best to always try the search functions on the forum, but i would suggest the non engraved rehaut LN 'JF 16610' with the SH3135 or eta based movement. Add gen Crystal, gen bezel insert, bezel click spring, gen date wheel and you will have one of the closest to Gen watches to enjoy.
  4. Hi Snaker, welcome to the friendliest forum, some of the other ones like to shoot new members down for the fun of it. We have all previously been in your position, mine was back in 2008!! . My suggestion is that you have a look at our trusted 'collectors' forum and decide what works for you best. I have personally always used Andrew at trusty time or Josh at perfect clones, they are collectively known as The Cartel if your searching the forums and come across the term. Both have been in the rep scene for years and are trusted. Hope that helps Cheers DH
  5. Just finished, always wanted one of these and managed to buy this fantastic Franken example
  6. Hi guys Hopefully someone maybe able to help me. I've recently purchased a Franken old school omega seamaster 300 chronograph. The aim is to try and make it watertight, it has a gen tube and crown and I'm sure I can re gasket the pushers. Does anyone know If the helium valve was just a mock one, or would I also need to find a gasket for that as well. Appreciate any Info Cheers DH
  7. Morning Gents, just in the middle of trying to piece something together, does anyone know what the measurement is between the centre pinion and the centre of the date wheel on an eta 2824 movement. Around 9mm? Greatly appreciate any help on this one

  9. 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.
  10. Gen 11068 breitling military issued colt, with an added bit of colour on the insert
  11. Congratulation Mike, well deserved. Sadly ive not been too active lately as self employment is proving to be rather time consuming
  12. 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
