  1. Haha..calmed down a bit since then. Just do fashion shoots now Good to know. Think I might spring for the ARF 116520, sand down the pushers & caseback and just wait for the DSSD V8 lol
  2. Good to know. Anyone know how reliable the movement is on the ARF Daytona? As good as the JF with non-working chronos or crappy like the old 7750?
  3. @nanuq Thank you, sir Anyone have any answers on The Daytona?
  4. Hello to all again! I haven't spent a lot of time on these forums in years, as I've simply been satisfied with my old 116520 & V? DSSD. Anyway, I'm looking for help from some of the more knowledgeable current members--I'd like to update my DSSD and after doing a little homework have narrowed it down to either the V6s or the V7 (looking between these two): V6S: https://www.intime02.co/rollie/2650-sea-dweller-deepsea-116660-black-ceramic-v6s-1-1-noob-best-edition-sa3135.html V7: https://www.intime02.co/rollie/2950-sea-dweller-deepsea-116660-black-v7-1-1-noob-best-edition-a2836.html From the pics & description I see I'm kind of leaning towards the V6s. After doing a few different searches I still haven't found a proper comparison here between the two to say: is the V7 really better than the V6s and if so for what reasons? And is the SA3135 really any worse in reliability than the 2836 or is that just outdated information? Secondly, I have the old JF Daytona 116520 in white but am wondering if it's worth the upgrade to the new ARF w/ the (supposedly) 904L construction? I like the fact that unlike the JF the ARF 904L has a working stop-watch hand. My question is: is this new movement just another ticking timebomb like the old 7750 or is it as reliable for daily wear as the JF? And since the case is 1.5mm thicker is there a thinner caseback available or can I make it thinner by just using my old JF caseback and removing the rotor? Maybe I should just buy a 904L bracelet for my JF and call it a day. ARF: https://www.intime02.co/rollie/4110-daytona-116520-arf-1-1-best-edition-904l-ss-case-and-bracelet-white-dial-a4130-super-clone.html Any help to these questions would be greatly appreciated. Good talking & thanks for your help.
  5. I've just read your post "How to restore & maintain a brushed/satin finish". I have a question here, there are 2 types of refinishing pad one is " Satin / Brushed Refinishing Pads", another is "Titanium Refinishing Pads". Which one should i purchase?

  6. Ordered one from Josh--absolute garbage. Anyone know for certain where to source one of these? Thanks.
  7. Happy Birthday gioarmani!

  9. Understood. I guess I can try to find an aftermarket or replica crystal with the proper amount of distortion.
  10. Well that sucks. I actually just ordered the new ceramic insert with better triangle and glass-clad pearl from Josh. We shall see... If anyone else knows anything about aftermarket/gen crystals, please feel free to chime in. And thank you.
  11. Hello again to all--long time, no see. I'm looking to source either a gen DSSD crystal or a proper replica one for my still running V3: I haven't really been following the rep game for a couple of years & couldn't even honestly tell you what release of this model they're even on... I know the V4 and others had way too much distortion in them to even be usable & my V3 has 0 distortion. Does anyone know which new crystal has essentially the same distortion as the gen and hopefully the crown etching at 6 o'clock? And regarding the gen, has anyone tried putting a gen crystal in a V3? Thanks for the updates & advice in advance. And take care!
  12. Happy Birthday gioarmani!
