  3. Happy Birthday vmarks!

  4. I made the good decision months ago of buying a dial from whoopy12. The whole experience was good: communication? prompt, answered every question, and really gave me the attention I needed to feel good about purchasing. Shipping? Fast. Service? A real winner. The dial I received at first had some marks on it. Whoop took it back and exchanged it immediately with a dial that is perfection. It's nice when everything goes smoothly, but the mark of an amazing seller is how you recover when there's a question. Whoopy12 is a true gentleman, and I'm pleased to have bought from him. TLDR; would do again, whoopy12 is good people.

    3035 movement in 17000 Oysterquartz case

    The thing I would worry about is height of the different movements. The 3035 and 5035 shared designs and heritage, but I don't know if the height / stem height is different. There were OQ case watches that used a 1570 inside: The 1630 as you mentioned. http://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/fs-rolex-1630-datejust-oysterquartz-case-1040559.html I see what you mean about the chapter ring, there. The way that ring dips down makes me think that the 1570 is way thinner than the 5035, and the ring takes up the difference in height. It moves the movement away from the crystal so the stem lines up. Do you already have the 3035? Do you already have the OQ case? Or is this information gathering before you sink money in the parts?

    My 1016'd 1601

    I so want someone to clone the stilty ring. With shapeways and thingiverse we just need someone to draw it and then we can print all we need. Sent from my mobile device

    misiekeped = good

    TLDR; good communication, good person. Having misiekeped work on some projects has been a really good experience. He kept an eye out and contacted me to let me know when Yuki had movements in stock. He sent photos of projects mid-assembly and on the timegrapher. He answered questions many times during his work, and sent updates about how a movement was settling in after a new mainspring. He'll tell you it will take two to three weeks to finish a project based on his current workload (NOTE: this could change, that's just what he said at the time) and then he beats expectations and finishes early. On top of all this, he's very reasonable on price. If you have a project, PM him.

    Rolex Daytona book PDF floating around?

    I'd like the Datejust or Milgauss / Explorer. The Sub Story was good reading.

  12. Late as ever, but M is an inspiration and his build threads are an excellent place to start an education. Thank you! Sent from my mobile device

    Tuesday the 17th Sept 2013 wrist check

    awful sub type. Folded links, rusting case, movement keyless is terrible. Crown guard shape is half rounded, half pointed. And yet, it ticks. Sent from my mobile device
