  6. My first MBW 1665 DRSD build, help please. :D

    I heard on anther forum that some member was concerned about the Swiss movement in these which is expected. Well in fact it is a nice Swiss ETA 2836: And here is the MBK crown tube on left and Athaya 702 on right: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No this was a gen insert as sold to me by Sub007 I also noticed the same thing. The Athaya tube is a lot thicker and needs the case to be drilled and tapped. This doesn't seem to be true for the 5513 or 1680 as my friend stated his was okay and swapped right in. Athayas tubes for 702 should be exactly the same as gen. They will fit gen crowns. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Any advice for nicer and flatter hands? The MBW seems to be small and off on the hour hand. Actually all the MBW hands are seemingly not correct. I'm considering TC hands vs. M. young hands vs. Clark's with Clark's being the least pricey at $15 or so. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the advice. A friend actually kindly gifted me a cartel 93150 and it wears great! As for the crown tube a friend also said in his experience the Athaya (and gen) tubes fit perfect on the 5513 and 1680 MBW. That just mean the 1665 uses a different setup. So no luck on the crown yet but so far so good: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anyone know a good place to pick up end links and bracelet to match this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Another interesting tidbit is that this 1665 I got is lumed. All this time I thought the MBW/MBK dials were not lumed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So good news is I got it drilled and can finally wear it. The bad news is for some reason my Athaya 702 crown is MUCH bigger opening for crown tube. So it wasn't a straight forward swap for the 1665 MBW case. It seems though that the others such as the 5513 that Delaforce another member did was perfect fit... Odd. Stock MBW on the left, and Athaya 702 on the right. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I've been studying gen dials and this MBW dial is just really odd so far as the over expressed spaces in the word "SEA -DWELLER." Makes me feel this dial isn't even worth using as a coaster. Probably just either wear as is or go all out for a nice aftermarket dial and match the lume in the hands. Pouring money to relume this dial seems silly since it's so awkward looking. Also been eyeing some t39. May just be thrifty and slip a Clarks or CWP on it. Gen service replacements are tempting. Original superdome prices are astronomical. As far as crowns go I'm not wanting to spring big bucks on a 700 or 702 gen so got an Athaya 702 on the way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
