  1. Looks amazing !! I picked up the 1616 after considering this 979 pretty hard. I have to say the quality is as good as gen with out doubt. Stunning watches !
  2. Your work looks incredible !! I would 100% be interested in some parts to convert my 726 and also bridges for a 616 so i can build a 3646 :)
  3. If you ever want to sell it let me know :)
  4. Hologramet that is a fine build my friend !! Stunning ! As for comments about spending too much ? Hmm that’s really subjective. Many fellas on these forums like myself can easily go but a genuine version of the watches we build .. lol but it’s just not that fun 😁 where did you track down the dial and hands ? I really really love these dials on a Daytona and want to build one 😁
  5. Apparently there is a “v2” due out in March some time, but I was told by Toro that this is it.. but we will see
  6. just received this today from Toro ! Who I may add is awesome ! Always top notch service with him ! Ordered my watch the weekend and have it today 😎 secondly just in quick observations I have to say these watches have come a lone freaking way! Only one of my end links has any gap whatsoever and it’s small. The other side is perfect ! Everyone gets on about the dial etc.. it’s actaully pretty damn good quality wise, yes the sub dials may be slightly fat but u less you are looking for it you won’t see it and the font it off but really on the wrist no way to actually see this in reality. I will change out for the ARF dial when I locate one but in all honesty there are next to no one in the general public even experienced Rolex fellas that would call this out on the wrist. Maybe a few of us here knowing what to look for would quite quickly but the likelihood anywhere else is slim. I think its a great step forward for the market and hobby. I’ll be messing with this a bit so I’ll be posting as I progress with the quest to perfection.
  7. Yea I’m going to only make some subtle aging to the whole watch, nothing serious. I think it’s good enough to not be masked by excessive wear that you will rarely see in the genuine watches.
  8. Yea I’m actually pleased to see she is selling them again. As I mentioned before, she told me she didn’t have them anymore. I was wanting to get a project started for a custom one. But this is damn good! Maybe a serifs are minutely less than the gen but overall this is the best I’ve seen. And yea my watch needs a lot of aging overall lol it’s the only thing I’ve not done yet. Can’t decide how far to take it.
  9. Yea it didn’t take long lol I’m anal about waiting so I got her to express it to me lol It’s quite a lot better than the Phong, the numbers are the correct size and the 5 min markers aren’t as fat and a bit longer reaching to the edges as it’s supoosed to. Here are some photos, in my watch is a ruby insert but it’s not been massaged yet so a little too crisp for the watch. The photo of the insert alone is a phong with my own pip and aged to take away some of the black above and below the numbers to make it look better vs. The stock ruby insert.
  10. Received my Ruby inserts today ! They look amazing compared to the phong version. When I get it sorted I’ll post a photo.
  11. Here is mine using a Vietnam case, custom dial/hands, gen 1520 movement, gen crown and stem and a phong insert. What seconds hand are you using ? Seems more correct than mine.
  12. Just ordered two and waiting for her to get back to me. One to sacrifice to test the aging of it and one to be a working one. If it shows up and it’s the same as the photos, these are currently the best 5517 on the market.
  13. She has them again ??????? She told me she didnt have them anymore. Phongs are not so great and the numbers are too small... good enough but not so good.
  14. Ugh the damn 5517 lol been a while building mine. Down to a good insert quest now. Good luck this build can be a heart breaker.
  15. Phong/MQ/custom and gen. The 726 is quite costly now, I actually bought this as a base with a 726 in it. I would say they are in the $4k range for the most part, may luck into one for less. But they are a stunning movement ! Just look at this sexyness below 🤤
