  1. Amazingly beautiful Bob! We enjoyed this one here in the Smokies a few nights ago.
  2. I have the 7016 case set up with my gilt 7928 while I decide what to do with that dial. If anyone has a gen 7016 dial they will part with I could make this one right proper.
  3. Sure. This is up side. Gen parts include early 9411 dial, crown, branded swuss eta 2784, 93150 bracelet. Plexi is Sternkruz 25-125, Clark bezel, aged black to blue JK insert with ofrei pearl and the Phong 7021 case. I had it in the later 9411 case but ut was too new for the dial. I will have to take a few of the other. Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
  4. @dvne Here are a few more pics for you. Mine have worn in nicely.
  5. His 7016 and 7021 have the older style case back. I have one of each. His 9411 is the newer case back style. Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk

  7. Hello Bob, hope things are well for you up in the great north!


    I want to bring you in on something I have some concerns over.


    last week I agreed to purchase a yuki rivet from this sale Bennykwa had up.

    I and other friends have bought from him in the past and always great communication and quick shipping. I last pm'd with him on Monday and agreed to send him $180 gift and he was to ship on Wednesday. I sent funds and he never acknowledged them as he has in the past.


    so fast forward to now. It's been a week and I have sent pm'd as well as email and received no responses. Certainly no tracking info either.


    what would be your recommended course at this point?


    thank you for you help,




  8. Yes, mine has a gen plexi and is a DW. RA has a way of fitting without changes to the Rehaut. You can also put thin metal tape all the way around the Rehaut to make up the space. It is very little space. The bezel also has to be opened up to fit over the plexi. I will send pics of mine when I get back in a bit.
  9. Minute hand looks great! I still need to shorten mine. Bezel is nicely refinished as well. Now all you need is gen date wheel and plexi and it is perfect! Super home plate there friend!
  10. Very interesting Benny. It is amazing how the wars in Europe have affected most every watch company's history. Not just in Germany but also Swiss, French and Italian. Every life has a story... Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  11. Wasn't sure how I would feel about the absence of the CG's but you have pulled off and incredible build there Sir. Very impressive!
  12. Here are a few more fittment choices for the DW case. Gen 501b WSO 580 71n lower 71n upper I am leaning toward the 580 or the 71n. None are a perfect fit and can be irritating to get locked in. (Which makes me nervous about the security of what has became a very expensive build.) Think I will try to find a set if 589. Has anyone tried them yet?
  13. No someone before me did that. I bought them Cheap because of it. $50 Can't tell from the top and otherwise a good fit. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  14. Lot of long earned wisdom in this post guys! Thanks for the info R good stuff! Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
