  1. O&W worn by the previous owner for 10 years, never came off his wrist. Au Naturel patina!
  2. Red 1680 today
  3. Yep thats correct Ezio
  4. Great to hear, hopefully you can give us your opinion in terms od what's possible. Ideally looking for a donor for my 16800 build. DH I think I'm right in saying based on the video that the hand rotation is as per gen? So in theory the movement had to be 3135 based?

  6. I'd be interested in some feedback on this as well. Is it just the usual sa3135 with engraved logo and number on the plate? Which version of the LV dial is this? I believe theyres 4 variants Cheers DH Mark 7, Round 'O', 'R' in 'Oyster' aligned with end of left foot of 'R' in 'Rolex', 'Between 28 & 32 Mins', Pointed 4, Serial number On Inner Rehaut, From M Serial August 2008 To ??????? Mark 8, Oval 'O', 'R' in 'Oyster' located under right foot of 'R' in 'Rolex', '3 Ticks', Pointed 4, Serial number On Inner Rehaut, From M08332X Serial 2008 To ??????? The flat 4 insert is too early for the engraved rehaut models (i think) Mark 7, Round 'O', 'R' in 'Oyster' aligned with end of left foot of 'R' in 'Rolex', 'Between 28 & 32 Mins', Pointed 4, Serial number On Inner Rehaut, From M Serial August 2008 To ???????

  7. Hi Hugo Nice to hear from you, yep my thoughts as well. Problem is TC no longer has any cases for sale. So I'm on the hunt. Cheers M
  8. Good afternoon Gents, I could do with some advise if possible. Apart from the TC sub case is there anything off the shelf i can use for a 3135 based 16800 build. Appreciate any help Cheers
  9. Good point diesel, I did think about grabbing one of petes silver overlays but in the end went for the 'service white' option which has the open 6 and 9 and serif numbers.
  10. I was recently very fortunate to be able to buy an older MBW from a fellow member, best of all it came with the original hollow link 93150(got some small stamped WSO endlinks on the way). The previous owner had previously sent it to Pbdad for case mods and a beautiful vanilla re lume job on the dial. But it needed a little TLC on arrival so off it went to Mr steel for a spa break in Finland. Full strip down of the movement with a replacement part required. Re polishing of the top hat plexi and a nice case clean up and a pressure test to confirm the Watch was water tight . As always a prompt professional job by M. Funnily enough I was never really a fan of these plexis back in the day when I wore a gen 5513. But it's funny what age can do and I can't imagine the 1680 with anything else but the slightly strange high top. Well it's now my daily beater and put into service like all of the original tool watch rolex's from the 1970s. When they made watches for men? who did dangerous things! Enjoy the pictures Dh
  11. Welcome on board cracker Boom, good luck with the build.
  12. Good Morning Fraggle, I think its fair to say that you would be a very valued UK source for watch servicing etc. As kernow states Micky is our Englishman in Finland so another EU based set of hands would be great. I'm sure he'd be happy to provide some guide line in terms of prices etc. Perhaps avoid the 7750 secs at 6 movements!!
  13. Nice to see you again Edge
  14. I love the way he's stratigically placed the beautiful Rolex on top of the pile of crap
