  1. Yep, somebody want to send me a gold watch for retirement? [emoji6][emoji106] Sent from my SM-T587P using Tapatalk
  2. My brotha from the northern tundra! Looks like we are within a couple years of each other! Beautiful territory in that last shot Nanuq.
  3. So, I'm guessing you guys were born after 1984 since it has a Biccherini dial?[emoji6] My birth year goes back far enough that it makes a birth year watch quite expensive! But it looks like this... Congratulations to@capre great catch here. Enjoy!
  4. Great finish Holo! What an amazing build. Love that Domi made a plan to keep the dial feet intact.
  5. Stunningly great work! Especially like... "2) Drilled holes for gen dial feet in the mainplate > sturdy and keeps the dials value." I have done this on 2842 movements and they can be bought as no date and already have single position time setting keyless. Works out great! Holo, this will be a keeper for sure!

  6. [emoji122][emoji122][emoji122] Awesome!!!
  7. Hologramet I have fought similar battles. Not loosing a beauty of a gen movement but others. Dials that are supposed to be gen showing up as rep, running “great condition” movements arriving stuck and non repairable, long delays waiting for the correct parts. Etc.... I agree with the others, definitely stick with it. Just sit it aside and let some time pass. After all it is a birth year build right? It took you quite a while to reach this age and good things take time and perseverance. In the end you will have something very special to you that you would never think of parting out. Just my 2 cents BTW, love the wall clock!
  8. Excellent information@Automatico as usual a full on watch class when you post. Thanks for the education!
  9. Here is a pic of the Red. (Entirely high end rep parts) As you can see it needs a gen 702 also. If you run into someone who has a few let me know.
  10. Absolutely, you will save a bunch. Just the gen 93150 bracelet has became ridiculously high now. I have seen very well done aged bracelets using rep parts. I did the same with my red dial build and am very happy with it. The case on it is a DW and will take gen 1570 but it doesent bother me to have 2824 power. I have the white with gen movement and 1 is enough. Keep posting as you change it. It’s your art, keep it coming.
  11. Be careful, the 1680 is totally addicting! This is my 5th one and they get increasingly expensive. This one has a Phong case and back with Clark bezel. All else is gen including a 1570 and silver date wheel. That’s why you have to be careful. $$$$$[emoji33] 1680 addiction can get very expensive! Still a nice gen whitey will set you back $10-12k so a franken at this level is still less than half that.
  12. Gen 702 is definitely a worthwhile upgrade! LifeTrekker yours is a great effort that can still be even better than it is. Keep refining it. Do the 702 next you will love it.
  13. One other replica insert you might look into that I didn’t see mentioned was from Jensen or Phong. Here are a couple of pics of one I have had for a while. It has heavy serifs on the numbers and the batons.
