  1. Money vs Daytona?

    Take the cash, a brand one in Asia is just slightly more than 17.5k at grey dealers. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  2. Noob V7 no date sub

    3135 and swap with a gen movement Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  3. Noob V7 no date sub

    They each have a different movement and with A2836 you can swap with an ETA which should be more reliable. But this verison has a different stem height which is less accurate than the 3135. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

  6. Rolex Daytona with Swiss

    There are "Trusted Dealers" (TDs) on this forum where most of them can you the same rep (roughly the same price) and some prefer different payment methods. You are new and I will be nice as we get new members asking the SAME/SIMILAR question as you ALL THE TIME. If you use the search function, you will find the info you need. To answer your question there are NO Swiss movement rep Daytona (unless you bought a gen movement). The current and best Daytona is by ARF. Where is an ASIAN movement and the chrono doesn't work so it can have a close to gen slim profile. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  7. Vintage Heuer Monaco Rep

    Unfortunately there are no good vintage Rolex reps (4 digits) unless you build one. TBH, if you want decent "out of the box" reps is best to go with modern watches like AP, Tudor (especially Black Bay), Paneria, IWC and SOME Rolex (like ARF and Noob) offers. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  8. Vintage Heuer Monaco Rep

    I personally wanted a rep Monaco ever since i discovered rep forums that was around 8 or 9 yrs ago and there isn't one that's decent. Live is too short, if you are in a position to acquire a gen one, do it. I personally have other stuff in life which takes priority and Monaco is not at the top of my list. Best of luck with your search. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

  10. A Trip to Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam Rolex Vintage Shops

    I'm going in late Jan. My dad is a well known watch restorer in the East (he only deals with businesses not individuals) and even he said he's doesn't know their physical address. Providing he's speaks Vietnamese and have been doing this for the last 20yrs. He usually meet dad in his hotel or in coffee shops. One thing you have to remember, altho Vietnam is corrupt, but it is still illegal if they replicating parts, hence their secrecy. On another note, Ive met the supplier of MQ and Phong before. I told him their prices and he's not surprised as he's doesn't know English or tech so he can't sell his stuff himself. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  11. Vintage Heuer Monaco Rep

    There are no good Monaco replica. Anything close is a quartz and they are not close. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  12. 1982 Rolex 6263 "big red"

    Looks great, what are the specs? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  13. Repair time with Puretime?

    PT (Angus) is a great TD I doubt there will be an issue, but the timing does seem rather long maybe the model you bought is discontinued and they have issues sourcing you the part(s) for repairs. Anyhow my recommendation is shoot Angus a PM and he should sort you out. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  14. Decals print dials

    Very selfish Bart.. Haha.. It's been amazing what you have shared so far! Sorry for the delay, I'm going to Vietnam in Jan so I should be able to source you some plain dial plates if you still need them. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  15. Dodgy 5517 on eBay
