  1. Interesting point of view. I for one don't think there's such a big picture... I think we vintage watch lovers are not so many. Most people want plain bling and a 100K€ vintage Daytona just isn't visible enough on the wrist to thrill the uneducated crowds. There are two kind of reps : modern and vintage. Modern is mass made and yes brands are fighting against it. It's perfectly understandable. Vintage on the other hand is a totally different picture. Never was it mass produced (for quality items. The only mass produced are jokes really...) and that very fact shows the clientele pan is limited.
  2. Wow there are new players indeed !!! I'll shoot you a PM
  3. Hi my friend! Glad to see you're still here !!!!! We'll see.... I've be hearing that for years now and we're all watching it grow and grow.... I think it just follows the curve of all other values. The thing is it's a worldwide market and we westerners have less and less buying power every year compared to the new countries. So many of us are left behind not understanding what is happening. My two cents... Thank you so much !!!! Hope to chat soon mate !
  4. Yes Freddy, i believe too it will keep on rising. It’s been 20 years I’m hearing from serious dealers that’s it’ll go down. And it never did. In 2000 I bought a 6239 for the equivalent of 8000 euros. I found it really expensive but I had to have one. 2 years later I sold it near 28k thinking that’s too much money for a watch compared to the pleasure it procured me. And also then I discovered the amazing and cheap 2000 viet builds in HCM that did the job for 2k usd…. I honestly thought it would kill the market. It didn’t
  5. It seems the world is really going sideways.... New generation really have no taste. Best example of it to my eye is electric cars. What a sad soulless thing... Music too : it's the mirror of society and look how empty it is. No creation. Very sad. Where are we going? About our hobby : yes parts are the issue. I mean parts prices. I'm amazed how much money is involved to gather good parts now. But hey : still when you compare to what is asked for a new Tissot of some sort you can still build a decent watch within the affordable range. Let's say yesterday we were around the 1K glass roof for so
  6. This is just to share as it's already sold... Do you guys have new contacts for dials in VN? I mean custom. Not the ready made ones. Both my contacts are gone... Getting parts is soooo hard nowadays
  7. It looks like the forum isn't as active as before or is it me? I see the post dates are quite far apart
  8. Thanks! And my apologies for not being around for such a long time
  9. Hello everyone! I’ve missed you guys. I’m still not ready to accept orders just yet but I have made some builds I’ll be posting for sale soon on my favorite forum. All the best to you all!
  10. A sweet one... I think it originally came from MBW. Not sure... I'll let the owner answer if he wants to share. Anyways: CB is well done. Dial from Vietnam, genuine clasp adjusted to a good rep bracelet. Swiss T39, Athaya crown. Case fully reshaped.
  11. It started as a JMB v1 indeed. But there are several operations to transform it like that: shaving of the rear side, cutting of the groove and shaping of the caseback seat. All done with proper equipment. There are few to none exact 1016 cases out there !!! The 1016 has a very specific shape. Not similar to a DJ at all.
  12. Movement is an elebore 2824. So it's an ETA based watch, but the dial has feet, and isn't too small for the case like it often is resulting in damages on the sides! parts fitment is perfect !
