  1. Got a weird 5513 yesterday and need advice.

    No worries, lots of great info on the forum. Yeap, the retaining ring holds the crystal on the case. The bezel itself clips onto the retaining ring. Here’s a shot of the midcase and then the crystal and retaining ring in place.

    It's not difficult to replace the crystal, you're half way there. If you were intending to the mod the watch you may as well keep it. Trust me on this – the Cartel does need modding to get anywhere close to the original. You can pick them up from here: http://www.pf-818.com/watches/rolex/submariner/vintages/0-0-0-0rlsv01006-vintage-5513-no-date-submariner-asia-eta-2836.html?___SID=U

    Personally I’d go for an Ofrei PA 462 66 crystal. It’s a very similar look to a T19 service crystal. Don’t go for a Clark T19, there’s too much rehaut distortion. You can read about my v.2 build in the link below which may help. https://rwg.cc/topic/181702-modded-cartel-5513-v2/

    Actually, I‘m in two minds about putting the DRSD 1665 up for sale. It’s the Ofrei PA462-67A on the watch now.
  8. Who makes the best 5513 dial that fits ETA?

    Drop them an email. Ask what they have available.

    Actually the Clark T39 is better than their T19, different curvature so less unwanted distortion. I’ve only used the Ofrei service style T39, I prefer the look on my 1665.

    There’s a lot of rehaut distortion with the Clark T19 crystal. Here’s a side by side of the same watch - Clark vs CWP. Cheaper is the Ofrei PA 462 66. It has a lower profile but is very close to a T19 service crystal.

    Did that too. Paradoxically it’s more expensive than the lumed version as it’s considered to be a custom job, almost twice the price.
