  2. Great watch mate. Got bitten by the vintage chrono bugs lately. They are very good looking watches. The only drawbacks are most of them are in the 34-46mm diameter case size. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. I will go with gen in this case. With the rep, you will definitely lose money when selling. Anything above USD1000 is a slow mover. Plus, the rule is to sell at a loss. With gen, i believe that the price will keep increasing. And there is always the feeling of you are wearing gen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. I haven't been contributing to the forum for quite a while given that I hardly bought new rep watches. But I bought a few gen watches. But most gen vintage Rolex case condition is not that good compared to the modded rep one. So i can't really give a good pics to show as well. This one has quite a good case and in a good condition, so I will post some pics for modding reference. When I first started venturing into Vintage Rolex, the 2 models that caught my eye was Sub 1680 and Explorer 1655. But in order to save shipping fee, I got myself a 1665 as well. I never thought it is a special watch and I would have never thought that i will grow to like it. But once I saw the finished 1665 (done by pbdad), I am hooked. Over time I have bought and sold a few 1665. My friend happens to have a gen one, so I always compared what I have with his gen, but the rep always came up short. The part bugged me the most is that the lug size is always fatter in rep case. I have gone through only cartel and MBW case, so I can;t say for yuki or phong case, but looking from pics, I think all of them has fat lug. Again, with Rolex, you could never know. Maybe there are case variations among different years. So this thread is based on my Mark1 dial case and my friend Mark4 dial case (which looks similar to me). PIC: My old MBW case build: Please let me know if there is part of the watch that you want me to show. I will update the thread form time to time. Thanks

  13. That will be a great feature to be able to leave a feedback more easily. I find the feedback menu on other forums easier to access. Other than that, I find this forum offers more knowledge especially on rolex builds. I spent countless hours reading the posts here although I can't really contribute because I lack the attention to details that some of the members here have. Thanks for the mods for the time and efforts to make this website running.
