  2. @alterego Case in point: This is my AP 15500. And a good and true representation of the Audemars Piguet 15500. Now if I want to ask if it’s the most beautiful watch in the world, I can use this pic and not some defiled version of the watch to get an opinion. The way I see it, YOU owe all of us AP guys (@quetip,[mention=74693]blackboxes[/mention] etc) an apology for posting a throw-away, rep of a canal st rep, deformed Quasimodo of a watch, calling it a “15202” and trying to get an opinion of its aesthetic appeal based on it. If you are showing enough disrespect to the brand and one of its popular Royal Oak models to do that, then you’re either being sarcastic, ignorant or plain antagonistic, none of which deserves any form of courtesy. Do not push your luck further. This can either end here and now or you can go on to make a bigger fool of yourself. If you had posted a breitling I would not have cared less. But don’t insult the brand by posting an ugly cheap rep and using it to represent the 15202. #disrespectful Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No, I have said nothing wrong and I will NOT apologize. It is you who misconstrued my comments. Firstly, your title asked if the watch in the subject was the most beautiful watch ever made. And then you posted a pic of a cheap and poorly made rep to represent the watch. It is like asking if Paris is the most beautiful city ever and then presenting a drawing of the city made by a normal 5 year old. You could have picked a much better picture to back up the beautiful watch picture implied in your title, but you chose to use your own pic to represent a beautiful watch. I am an AP guy, and I know my APs. The watch in your pic has no business being a 15202, much less being beautiful in any sense of the word. This is not about trying to pass off a replica as a gen, but rather, simply considering and discussing if the 15202 a beautiful watch. I consider the 15202 a very beautiful watch, but the watch in your pic is a poor replica of the 15202 and it looks cheap. I will call it as I see it and I will not apologize. Do some research and you will find there are much better representations of the 15202 replica. Being truthful does not equate to being arrogant. If you cannot agree, then learn not to post pics of cheap, cringe-worthy reps and use them to represent a watch model and then ask if it is the most beautiful watch ever made. Your topic will not even make sense and create confusion as to whether you are referring to the genuine watch or the watch in your picture.
  4. I have the replacement movement. If you want it you can PM me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. No, I mean I agree with the fact that the AP 15202 is beautiful. I was just saying that the picture is a poor representation of what the watch should look like. Below is a 15202 and I think it is beautiful and also how the watch should be pictorially represented.
  6. well 2 things: 1. Usually they call this type of guy a rep-friendly "watchsmith" or "modder" 2. I do not know anyone in France but I know of @SSTEEL in Finland. He can help you. Just send him a PM.

  10. Thank you kindly for sharing. I will go read up on details of the scam.
  11. Agree, but for the hobby, and most of the models, I will definitely recommend @SMP_lover over gen, given the overall fitment, price and of course quality. The gen straps are nice, but prone to tearing around the edges at the lug end. I had replaced 2 sets of gen straps (mounted on my gens) with SMP_lover's ones. His straps are good enough for gen APs. So I do not see a problem fitting them on anything else you can find in the hobby.
  12. so he is not just a scammer, but an identity thief. Will you care to list the details of the scam here, for the benefit of those not on RWI? Thank you
  13. yes, but getting paid for a service does not disqualify one from being good, and doing something for free does not mean that you are good as well. My point was that SSteel, being an established watch modder, is entitled, and in fact expected to charge in return for a job well-done. If you are getting the service for free from him, he is not obligated to you in any way, and merely doing a favor. Without payment and duty of care owed to you for a paid service, your watch may or may not be fixed according to your expectation. So I think I do know. Your local watchmaker will charge you a fee for the repair and so will SSteel. That is all fair and good.
  14. I'm sure you won't help him for free either M lol.
  15. of course. But you need to understand that because rep movements are often badly assembled, the shipping process often causes parts to come loose, get jammed in the gears and seize up the movement completely. So yes, sending the watch back to China to get it fixed is your entitlement. But you face the risk of the incoming China custom, and then the same transit risk again when it comes back to you.
  16. All broken movements can be fixed. In this hobby you must learn to be patient. I will suggest you send it to a modder to have it converted to low beat and also serviced, to make it more accurate and reliable.
  17. I am no Rolex expert but this looks rep even to a layman like me.
  18. When you say PH I assume Philippines? Anyway, wherever you are from, welcome!

  21. Thank you for sharing and I hope you get well soon. Take it easy meanwhile and don't stress yourself out. You are right.. stress and anger can be silent and slow killers.
  22. Oh this is the 2018 Gold theme with ruthenium dial. None of the TDs have it at the moment.

  24. Hey micasol, welcome to RWG! I think I know you, from RWI. You have some impressive AP builds which you showed before. Glad to see you here!
