  1. damn the pics dont show anymore
  2. I've scouted out two in the last two weeks running with issues and they've sold for 1200 usd each, both didn't identify valjoux 72 at all. They almost went for more than the ones marked as valjoux 72
  3. I'm working toward a 6263, I'm on one at the moment finishes in 2 hrs but there's no movement shot it's a big gamble and it needs servicing. It may be cal 72 or 726. I think I want 726 but I'm getting very willing to compromise on this point at the moment.
  4. Hi guys, I keep getting outbid on eBay on doner watches. I'm usually the second last bid. I don't think my budget is completely unrealistic. Can any offer advice on what they purchased v72/v726 for and if there are any other places you can recommend trying to find one.
  5. The theres a guy on rolex forums that make these bezels up
  6. If I read marrickville correctly, I'd say you are in Sydney. I've got a TC bracelet in manly, if that helps
  7. I had a beautiful serifed datewheel on the movement I sent rolexman, when he stole it. I tried to source another from old watch parts wholesalers but it's just a roulette datewheel that came on the movement I bought here.
  8. Just a status update, I ended up getting the screws from a very old watch parts wholesaler in Sydney so I've got her mounted and running. i had bought the movement from siesta181 on this forum and it runs and keeps good time but the timing hand will stall( but only sometimes) I want to change the hands to some from yuki. I wouldn't mind setting up an oyster bracelet for it but have no idea on the right end links (580?) But overall I'm happy with it. There's a bit of pride in the piece from installing the gen crown and tube replacing the pushers and mounting the hands and movement in the case. ive almost forgot the disappointment in paying spin master to build and service the watch and getting a watch that wouldn't run right and leaked(took 5 months to build whilst waiting for parts to ensure pushers were waterproof and then another 3 months wasted sending it back to him twice) then sending rolexman the spin master serviced movement and a new 45 min conversion kit then having him recommend replacing it as a cheaper option. Then he refused to return the movement and parts to me( rolexman is a thief) i think I'm ready to tackle the Daytona that I've got in the watchmakers drawer. Anybody got a running val 726 they want to sell holler my way.
  9. Hi I've just had a 48 mm planet ocean serviced and this is the bag of parts they replaced. I find the helium escape valves and crowns look pretty accurate on the reps. Do people replace these with gen parts? I guess what I'm asking is whether this is something worth keeping or should I file them into the bin.
  10. Whatever happened to the ny guy and his 6263 bezels? Is there a decent option for aftermarket 6263 /6265 bezels at the moment? I see a dw 6263 bezel in the sales section that looks to have good font but from memory these won't fit on a gen crystal
  11. There was a bit of suck with that I bought the parts set from the Li nk and the screws don't fit. I think they are a reference 5101 screw I'm trying to find out what else they fit. Any tips appreciated
  12. Maybe I didn't post enough info. It's a dw case I have a valjoux 7734 but I don't have any of the mounting tabs to secure the movement in place. Surely somebody can offer some advice.
  13. Hey guys i had a few stumbling blocks with a tudor 7032 build. It kinda crushed my interest in watches for the last year. I want to finish it off and was wondering if someone can help out. i just need to secure the movement in the case. Any tips on the movement tabs required for this are greatly appreciated
  14. Happy Birthday red series 3!

  15. There is a good guide done by Nicholas hacko in australia where he posts the step by step process he goes through when he refinishes a case his website is clockmaker.com.au
