  1. Thanks @sputim, I’m in for: 10x2mm 10x1.9mm
  2. Super helpful. Thanks @automatico!!!
  3. While we’re on the topic of 5513’s, does anyone know the thickness of the mid-case, sans the caseback and bezel ‘lip’ ? Did the case thickness stay constant throughout the model from the 60’s to the early 80’s?
  4. Cool project. Did you already get your Ruby case? I’d be interested to see the crown positioning. I got Ruby’s PCG a few months back and was frustrated to see the crown position as low. I can still salvage it with some filing, but was expecting better at that price point.
  5. Very sad to hear this. RIP Rolf. Your creations brought me joy. Absolute end of an era.
  6. I use an ultra fine grade 3M sanding sponge to get the matt faded finish. Start lightly and keep going until you get the desired effect. I’m useless with measuring the right amount of bleach to use, so I always go with the sponge. Just picked up my two inserts today. They are sweet! Thanks again K.
  7. I have a contact for Tonney’s case supplier (pm me if you’re interested). I didn’t order anything, but the guy was responsive. A few folks here have dealt with him, so better wait for them to chime in with any recent experiences (if any).
  8. 1655 was never on my radar, but your journey thread is truly inspiring. Thanks for sharing and congratulations on a fantastic build.

    Nice. Is the engraving between the lugs still visible after the coat is applied?
  10. I know a couple of members who are holding on to their Rollie 082 dials in their parts boxes. I’ve asked, and they’re not selling. DSN’s last version was also pretty good, but unfortunately sold out.
  11. That’s a real bromance! I have a couple of the DSN/Ross 618’s incoming as well. Your builds are added inspiration. And the photos... top notch as always. Thanks for sharing!
  12. Hi M, I meant my dial needs a proper case, I don’t want to cut the dial feet and go the 28xx route. That’s why I’m following altesporche’s build.
  13. Awesome collection and photos Kilowattore! We need to post more Pre-Vs and Pre-As and get Rollie and FGD out to play.
  14. Following your build journey. I have a Tonney 5517 dial that needs a home and I am through with cutting off dial feet.
  15. Thanks for the tip on the case. Yes, Rollie's/FGD dials are addictive
