    TC to 16800

    No, you’ll have a case you can’t use with your current dial and movement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Starting hasn’t had the 16800/3035 cases in a few years. Very hard to find. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I always try Point out to people the differences between wants and needs and what reality is. I’m the [censored] of the family so that makes it easier. At 17 walking about with a seemingly expensive watch is asking for the kid to get jacked, particularly if it’s just for the bling aspect. A nice G-shock will always do better as well as be more practical. Heck I have a few of them including my first g-shock that is going on 30+ years now and have only had to change the battery twice. The plastic disintegrated a long time ago but I keep it just because. First g-shock I ever had and it was also my watch for first year of military school. Lots of fond memories. Just saying.

    I would suggest a properly serviced 2892 movement with a decent dwo. Will run like a champ and be closer to gen beat and size wise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Honestly, for a teenager a nice Seiko turtle diver may be the better choice. Even with an oyster bracelet. They’re bullet proof and look great plus can take them anywhere. The crystal can handle a lot of abuse and scratches and look great. Just saying. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Black 1016

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. Maybe even the explorer 1655 hands to boot. Looks more like a 40mm case. Definitely potential. E Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good to know. A nice 1016 explorer sterile dial black build would be very practical for a daily wear watch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Very cool. Duracoat is no joke. Albeit thick. How is the bezel crystal retainer figment with the plexy? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Right on. If Neckyzips is still around he does amazing pantograph work. ST3035 case vs TC V2 case(rehaut engravings buffed out) and a BP 16660 for comparison. The ST3035 is my 16800 rendition. I wear it on a 93250 bracelet for daily wear and have a decent 93150 for those days I want more accuracy and rattle lol. As you can see there is a difference in the angle and depth of the rehaut. Subtle, but it’s there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The rehaut depth will drive you nuts once you make all the changes. Trust me. Been there done that. Let the TC case be what it is and do it right, or drill holes and make it a proper 16610 with lug holes. But a 16800 needs the thinner shallow rehaut. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Correct GK. The case I was talking about Janine if the earlier ST3035 cases. Has been worked and lugs beveled and the holes enlarged and beveled correctly and crown guards reshaped as well as other gen parts added plus engraved. This with the correct adapter and a nicely serviced 2892 can’t be beat or better a gen 3035 movement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can always get the correct 16800 case and use a 2892 movement with the correct adaptor. Then you will have the right profile as well as the correct repair for a 16800. Hate to be a stickler but the TC case will Work for a 16610 not so much a 16800. PM if you are interested in a case. Hope it’s ok to post like this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
