  1. AP Picture thread

  2. These articles always catch my eye and I always read them, this one included, and they are always terrible and way off the mark. For example, they never mention how the most knowledgeable watch people in the world are part of the rep world. The group here are true watch lovers not just people with too much money. They also never talk about how the rep world is just a starting place that almost always ends with gen purchases. They just miss the mark by so much with these articles.

    I'd like to hear about the 50 cal in the coin holder. I bet that's an interesting one.

    I think 4 re-opens is probably average for me when working on a watch. I need to get better at checking everything before I button it up. The problem is I notice something that at the time I consider to be "good enough" but once noticed it's all I notice so usually within 24 hrs it's open again to fix the thing previously determined to be "good enough"
  9. Rolex Wristies thread

    Somebody is trying to add artificially natural patina!!! Shame on you! I wonder if the boys over at RPR have a thread on distinguishing natural patina from artificially natural patina? "Only a watch with natural patina deserves a premium. Don't pay for artificially natural patina." Lolololololol

    Seriously, these things are time sucks. I started working on my RGRC at like 4 pm next thing I know it was 10 pm. The problem with any AP is that you're all excited when you finish whatever it is you set out to do and then you realize to put it back together there are 8 face screws, then 8 nuts,then 8 more case back nuts. It's like another hr just to screw it back together.

    Nothing but the best news to report. New stem came in the mail as well as the gold plating solution. As some background, when Chris thinned the case, some of the edges were just not plated well. I sent it back to him along with a full bottle of gold solution and he sent it back basically exactly the same and told me he used the entire bottle on the case. I now know that was a lie or he didn't know what he was doing because I plated a nickel, a SS screw and my entire watch with like a thimble full. I started off by plating a nickel. That worked pretty easily. Next I tried a stainless steel screw without the SS activating solution. Absolutely nothing. Dipped the screw in the activation solution and presto. So now it was on to the watch case. Didn't really work at first so I dialed up the voltage to 10V and it worked awesome. (The howto was written by Mikey over on Rep Geek. DIY plating on a budget.). Mine was really on a budget because I just stripped some wire I had laying around to connect everything up. The key is to make sure you use the SS activator and then just play around with the voltage until you see results. Once it started working it made all the edges perfectly gold. Sooo nice. I also used the gold buff solution immediately after each application to make sure I removed any blackness. That stuff really shines up the gold and I will likely use it anytime the watch needs a shine. Here's my not so sophisticated setup: Once the case was absolutely perfect, i reassembled everything, cut the new stem to length, places the crown in the hole and it slid exactly into place. Not sure what happened but maybe removing the glue and compacting everything down helped just enough. Couldn't be happier. She's better than ever!!!!!! Thanks to all who chimed in. She's back baby!!!

    No offense taken A. No one expects a forum on rep watches to be your first priority in life. Thanks for checking in. Gold solution to touch up the case is here and new stem arrived so I'll let you know how things progress. No input needed at this time but please stand by. :-)
