  1. The only halfway decent reverso rep that you will find is the tribute to 1931. It was a quartz model made for puretime. It is no longer being made / sold so you will have to find somebody willing to sell you one.
  2. Welcome back Ken, definitely not a new member on this board. Hope things are well.
  3. UPDATE: Got the watch together. Definitely needs more work and I'll end up pulling it all apart and rebuilding it when I find the right dial for it. But for now I'll leave it like this.
  4. I'm still stuck on the white / blue skin too.
  5. Not sure with the suit jackets but for other designer goods my go to place to read up on it would be r/DesignerReps on reddit. Decent community and a whole variety of goods being reviewed. The rep watch subs don't hold a candle to the rep watch fora but the rep clothes / softgoods subs are pretty damn good.
  6. Okay, have gotten the parts from raffles. Have tried fitting them together but have unfortunately run into the hurdle of how to properly attach and space the day/date wheels. Any advice @pompompurin or @dpap? Going to throw in a few photos of the raffles parts for the record. Looks like I will need to reset the crystal as it looks a bit wonky to me. Rolex Crown on crystal at 6 Dial before I scratched it up Current movement setup (not quite working) Nicely scratched up dial (thank god I did this first with a cheap dial) Dial attached to plastic dial mount supplied by raffles. Raffles DD Case Provided caseback Provided hands:
  7. Welcome Jason, what an absolute cracker of a build to start off with. Look forward to seeing how this ends up.
  8. Now this is just mean 😛 What're your build specs?
  9. Are you looking for a modern or a vintage Daytona or not too fussed?
  10. Gorgeous watch mate, I'm definitely still considering it but unfortunately Rolo hasn't been on RWG for months. I've sent him a message, we'll see if I get a responce.
  11. And another update, have now but the order in for parts with Raffles. Got everything from him for the moment and then from there we will see if I want to change anything out in future. Now I just have to play the waiting game.
  12. So from a bit more research it appears that the Rolojack case is simply a heat treated raffles case as Rolo said he got it from StoneP And StoneP sources cases from Ken Chua (https://forum.replica-watch.info/forum/nsfw-looney-bin/305645-the-truth-about-stonep-mymanmatt-datejust-and-daydate-builds) Appears the difference is heat treating and engraving which will be quite complicated rabbit holes to jump down for this build.
  13. What year or rep would this be?
  14. Yeah, just got the cheapest (non-disgusting) chrono24 price I could find (https://www.chrono24.com.au/rolex/day-date-18038--id7352245.htm) Bumps up to $8,900USD with aftermarket bracelet (https://www.chrono24.com.au/rolex/day-date-president-18038-18k-yellow-gold---aftermarket-bracelet--id9944049.htm) or about the same for florentine (https://www.chrono24.com.au/rolex/president-day-date-18038--id9802260.htm) I'd go with the 1803 (https://www.chrono24.com.au/rolex/-rolex-president-day-date-model-1803--id5699222.htm) before those though if going gen. Unfortunately being a poor(ish) 20 something year old gent all of those are out of the picture for now so it will be a rep for now once I figure out how to get a half way decent case. Did you end up finding out who the ebay dealer was?
