    Franken 1655 build

    Hey fellas, been a while since, I posted any build stuff. Been letting the bank cool off and collecting more parts for more builds. This one I’m particularly excited about. Been wanting a 1655 for a long time and well where the prices have gone I doubt I’ll be paying $20g for gen watches anymore with children and a warden in the picture lol however it was an excuse to build a kick ass franken ! When I’m done it will be a North worth buying gen type of deal lol I’m nearly into $6000 for this build now with buying a phone build to scrap for a better life. Case set is a phong 1655 2.9mil serial. The dial is a custom Vietnam frog foot rail dial that I’m still waiting on, it’s not correct to the serial date of 72’ ish as the rail dial appeared in 74’. The heart beat will be a crispy fresh serviced genuine 1570 Rolex movement. Genuine unused mint tritium hand set Genuine unused 25 - 116 plexi Genuine crown and tube (used) Genuine open 6 & 9 closed 26 silver date wheel minty fresh Really excited to get this out together, only missing the dial right now. Canada post is on strike so it’s taking forever to get here. Any criticism is greatly appreciated as these watches do have variance over the production years so minute details may be missed.
  2. WOW! What a piece ! Is this for your own collection or a customer ?

    I have a lot of Gen watches like a lot of guys here and could essentially buy any Gen I wanted, but it’s not about that. It’s the hobby and the fun of the chase. If you don’t get that then you are in the wrong forum.

    Yea I’ve never had trouble with her. She’s been good to me. Honestly Phongs is great I have them now in my 5517 and just recently seen Ruby’s but she has none and don’t know when she will have any lol but I think they are marginally better, the Fonts are larger and reaching more to the edges of the Insert. Here are a few photos, wish I could get one to see it in person. The serifs look nearly as good as the $2k low number reps that were done a few years back.

    Fellas ruby is still in action, whatsapp’d her today and she got back to me quickly. She has some amazing 5517 bezel insterts on her page but has none. 😰 Fellas ruby is still in action, whatsapp’d her today and she got back to me quickly.

    I’m in full agreeance with you ! I too would pay a lot for a good dual. Ive seen a few that were so close it hurts lol and others that were perfect in every way but one detail and hat one detail makes the dial useless no matter how much it was lol for example I seen rail dial recently for a 1655, but it had the regular cornet and the rail dials only had the frog foot cornet, so a huge easy give away for the ones in the know about these. But to be honest if I’m building a high dollar build and Incorrect dial is a killer. They made dials as well didn’t they ? Id like to give them a shot.. I’ve used Ruby’s and Phong’s cases recently and the quality is amazing, but always looking for others to try.

    Hmm with all do respect the heavy hitters from Vietnam now are ten times the quality of the old fellas in the market. Honestly on a level to be par with genuine manufacturers.. honestly MQ, phong, ruby etc... could be spot on if they pay attention to detail. Ive seen in a few different varieties of the same dial giving us one complete and exact dial when it comes to rolex. They just don’t do it for some reason.. given the price point they will not lose customers, they will gain from the fellas wanting perfection. I know myself as one that will pay a lot of money for a correct dial, after all, the cornet doesn’t match the other stand out issues the the dial no matter of a $30 eBay Rep to the $800 re printed dials will all be liked st the same..

    Thanks for the info ! well aware of the dials :P thats why im so picky about what im buying. Ive built tons of watches and ive become very anal about my builds recently lol This watch is a Phong cased watch and will house a Gen 1575 or converted 1570 if i cant find an original GMT movement. It will be well secured for sure, i dont do half ass jobs thanks for the link I may look at converting as the 1570s in non GMT are a little easier to find. Yea ive tried Ruby, shes been annoying to deal with recently and give random high prices for garbage at times.
