  1. I was browsing ebay and saw this post for a ETA 7750 and a Rolex dial assembly. It is obviously fake for that price. Why doesnt the IP Police go after them? https://www.ebay.com/i/153919104808?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=153919104808&targetid=935431406053&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1015303&poi=&campaignid=10454522093&mkgroupid=104612009740&rlsatarget=aud-412677883135:pla-935431406053&abcId=2146002&merchantid=6296724&gclid=Cj0KCQjwtZH7BRDzARIsAGjbK2agHMjSgEyCKpW-eXhk4EBaBr19W4iR-DVMaVoLcQL2qhAvUN7eNeIaAtOLEALw_wcB
  2. Nice looking watch. Pricey but don’t know the Components. Need a closer view. Is he a TD?
  3. I looked for some threads on the subject but couldn't find any. Anyway, the service would address a couple of areas. First, it allows a try before buy which is a small thing but kind of useful. Secondly, the service would allow you try wear a different watch every 2, 3, or 4 months depending on the plan which I like but maybe others would not. Third, it does allow the subscriber to be able to wear new watches every year as the inventory would be refreshed. Totally agree so that is why this service is attractive. I would disregard the monthly numbers as they are just a guide. But basically if you paid $150 per month that is $1,800 per year. it would take many years to save up to buy a expensive genuine watch. I think you could equate the same concept to leasing\buying a car. You don't want to tie up your money on a sset that will depreciate over time. If you lease you can get a new car every two years. In this model you can get a new watch every 2, 3, or 4 months if you like. Anyway, I appreciate you commenting.
  4. I have the utmost respect for ALL the members of RWG and thought I would ask this question to gain insight and experience and I am thinking of starting\investing in a luxury goods business. Have you every used any of these Rent a Watch sites like D & C Watch company? What was you experience? Would you consider a subscription model for a web site that offered a large inventory of luxury genuine watches for a monthy fee? If it was tiered by cost of watch what would you be willing to pay? This is really hypothetical just to show the concept and not really reflect the cost of the watchers. You could get a different once every 3 - 4 months. Bronze $150 - $200 per month Watches in $5,000 - $8,000 range Silver $300 - $500 per month Watches in $10,000 - $20,000 range Gold $700 - $900 per month Watches greater than $25,000
  5. I am in desperate need of a trusted repairer preferably in US (MD2020 did me in) to overhaul a 7750 of my favorite watch. Bought this beauty from Josh a couple of years ago.
  6. Don't use superglue. You need to use slow curing epoxy. I just did this job 2 weeks ago. 1. First you will need to use a dremel or similar tool to drill and remove old expoy from the bezel hole. Be careful not to apply to much force or you will crack the bezel. I used a loupe to ensure I was precise 2. Mix the epoxy. I used Devcon slow curing 2 ton mix. 3. Use a pin to apply a small amount on the post and on a small amount on the back of pearl. 4. Use the loupe to ensure the pearl is flush to bezel
  7. Sporting and new GMT II from BK...so sweet.
  8. Love the Admirals Cup. How do you like it. Does it get a lot of wrist time.
  9. Awesome!!! Mike does it make sense for you to get to save time. Just let me know how you want to handle
  10. Anybody have a pearl for sub ceramic bezel they want to sell. My favorite watch needs a facelift
  11. Mine has been in NYC since September 8th.
  12. The lens popped off my brand new AP World Time (photo attached) rep and the second hand bent and the dual time minute hand is off. Basically wore it for about 4 hours. I thought I would save time by just getting it repaired in the US thinking it would be minor cost. My watchmaker said I needed gaskets (probably not the right word for this part). So again I thought it would be quicker just to get the parts and get it repaired locally. I was encourage by recieving parts quickly. Two different watchmakers later still cant get it repaired. Not sure if I should just send it back to TD who will then get it repaired at the factory. It appears to be a relatively easy repair so I dont want to make any more bad decisions. Any ideas?
  13. I have a nice jaeger dress watch that the crystal housing popped off. Apparently my watchmaker says he can't fix because I need a seal. Instead of sending back to factory is there an easier way to get part in US. If so any recommendations.
