    Which factory makes (made) the Yuki 3135?

    I'll revive my old thread here from a couple years back... still wondering about this

    Can anyone ID the factory please?

    Unfortunately not. Worth about €20 + shipping.

    Vacheron k1072/1 mvmt help

    I'm also more into sports watches. The Vacheron 6782, one of my favourite references, used this movement. I think it'd be nearly impossible to get parts though. However, there are plenty of Vacheron dials on eBay... I'd just build a completely custom piece with this movement and a VC dial.
  5. To all the modders around the world: I am working on designing my own watch, which is partially based on a sub mid case. I need to have a prototype put together ASAP, and the factory I'm working with is taking its time. Does any modder have a sub midcase that they can reshape for me, whether it be a 16610, 1680, 5512, or 5513? Even if it is from a canal street grade rep, it may be fine. The crown guards would need reshaping, the midcase would need to be thinned, and the lugs would need some reshaping a bit too. Who can offer some assistance with this? Thanks!

    Modifying date wheels to fit a movement?

    Thanks! Good to know. And how do they slot in exactly? Do they sort of "clip" in?
  7. I'm looking to use a champagne date wheel for a project (a Seiko actually), and I was wondering if it's possible to take a date wheel for another watch, and modifying it to fit.

    Strange looking 1675 on the Bay

    I was in contact with him, letting him know it was full of aftermarket parts. The conversation was pretty civilized and I think he took it down himself.
  9. The dial sizes on subs has been 26-28mm in the various eras. I was wondering how big the dial opening is vs how much of the dial gets covered. Anyone measure?
  10. just checked the site and found my answer.. the seagull st-25.. i guess they just pulled off the rotor and put the nice plate over it
  11. anyone know what movement they used as a base for this? with the full balance bridge
  12. These are the measurements I'm looking for: Width of the individual lugs at key points Width of the crown and the gap between the crown and the case. And the diameter of the crown is 7mm I believe?
