  1. Well impressed by the Tudor Heritage Ranger on bracelet that I got from Toro. The only giveaways (very slight at that) are the slight texturing of the dial on the original, and the better definition of the Tudor Rose signage on the crown. Anyone suggest (directly in the thread or by IM) any possible sources? Anyone done such a mod?
  2. IWC connoisseurs please chime in

    I've had a close look and while the watch is an ok rep the bracelet is a mile out. Long, long way from super rep.

  4. Tudor Heritage Black Bay in Bronze

    No-one got the versions figured out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. IWC connoisseurs please chime in

    Anyone seen these watches (MkXVIII rep)? They look pretty good but I haven't seen anyone do a direct comparison.
  7. Tudor Heritage Black Bay in Bronze

    I see Trusty is now selling a V2 V6F version of this, at a low price too. Anyone got any info?
  8. Fake Zenith on ebay?

    Looks like it to me http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zenith-Pilot-Extra-Special-Type-20-Uk-Post-Only-/222148198972?hash=item33b910823c:g:Qq4AAOSwbYZXWolR
  9. Tudor Heritage Black Bay in Bronze

    First impressions not good, dial too dark, bezel too light/red should be all over more bronze coloured. At least they got the changed case size right (who knows about the shape!).
  10. Incoming: IWC 3714

    Is the second hand still an issue with these? I had one years ago even then it looked great, but it died after only a few months. Is the 'new, improved' movement really a fix? What's the best version these days? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Dodgy Big Pilot on feepay

    I'm no expert on these watches but this looks off to me http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IWC-Big-Pilot-Watch-/182156734040?hash=item2a69632e58:g:J1AAAOSwintXSDju
  12. Ingenieur Laureus with jacob strap blue marine

    I see Trusty are selling a v3 version of this. Strongly tempted. Any feedback on it? Obvious 'tells'?
  13. Anyone know how the blue compares? The gen is very distinctive c Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special

    Just open it (as should be done for every rep to grease the gaskets and check the screws (in this case also you need to check the lugs screws too) and put a SMALL amount of oil in the bearing. The 9015 is actually a very very good 28800 movement and a part the bit of noise (stay FAR AWAY from the Bell&Ross 123 if this is a problem) it is extremely stable and less temperamental than the eta clones. Just to say I got mine back after some watchmaker attention to lubricate the rotor and it's perfectly acceptable now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special

    The rotor in mine is very noisy compared to A2824 it's more of a giveaway than anything on the case or dial. Its a shame as its a lovely rep. I'm informed that only the miyota will 'work' in the bronze case not sure why that might be.
