    How to aged a pearl insert need DIY

    Nanuq's trick might actually work. It's just that I don't like artificial solutions, and fake patina color is just fake patina.. Try to bake it in the oven for 1 hr at 220 degrees. On a UK website there have been guys experimenting with this, some have been leaving it in longer and getting different colors on both pearl and insert, a nice brown can be achieved with longer baking, I've done it with 30 minutes at 250 degrees for my 5514 COMEX build and got a nice vintage pearl effect without damaging the insert.

    Is this a Genuine 1665 Case?

    I didn't like that insinuation either Lion. besides the fact that the guy's acct. is only a month old on the Bay.. Idk. This is crazy
  7. Comrades, friends and fellow replicans, I'm seeking your expertise once again. Another 1665 case set (midcase and CB) has floated onto the surface. Seller claims it's 100% original. 1978 circa. Will you take a look for me? Pictures attached. Much appreciated.
  8. CLASSIC! Please tell me yours is GEN. Nanuq! lol but It's well justified..
  9. Thanks Fred! Just sent him a request for a clear full frontal shot
  10. Afternoon Denim! About the age, He says it belonged to his original 1665 GW Circa 1979. He had it replaced recently with a GEN NOS one and so this one needs to go. Good point about the friction ring! What do you think of the bezel teeth? deep and nicely defined as they should? I used to follow a thread here w/ comparative shots of Gen. vs Phong or something, but I lost the link.. Here is another shot from the back:
  11. Until my friend Valty gets back at me, I thought to consult our venerable Gurus on RWG and seek advice. This part is offered to me as Genuine 1665 Great White Complete Bezel set of which I've been in hot pursuit. Seller seems like a decent guy, but it's always good to check. Fellow members who lack enough knowledge, please don't issue your Fatwa, as it might lead into confusion. Thanks
