  1. I'm in. Questions: Are you able to cut/polish the chamfers on the lugs fat and crisp? What's the timeline and approximate price? But please please please make a good quality crown, which doesn't wear out so quickly
  2. Since I know there are a lot of big Rolex 6538 Big Crown fans among you, I wanted to share some pictures of the 6538 GILT Hands that I've been working on for almost 3 years now. They come with Big Lollipop Seconds and are for sale in two different Lume Colors and for three different Movements. Most important information first, followed by a few paragraphs for those interested in the details Perfect / Gen-Spec for Rolex 6538 / 6538A Big Crown. Will also work for a few other references and are better than anything else available for the following references: 5508, 6536, 6536/1, Gilt
  3. I just tried to edit one of my sales post and while editing it I had all sorts of random pics that aren't mine attached to the post, see screenshot below. Could be a potentially serious privacy/access permission issue? @Admin @Nanuq
  4. Possibly because your particular Gen Insert was printed later with more worn out printing pads, which would result in bigger numbers. No two Gen Fat Font inserts you can find today will look exactly the same - they share characteristics such as Serifs and the overall Font, but they vary greatly in terms of how "fat" the font is. This is true for other inserts as well, e.g. I have a Gen Long-5 insert, which some have called the "fattest long 5 they've seen"
  5. Hi Slay, trying again to reach you. Please let me know how I can get a hold of you to purchase items. Thanks.

  6. DM me please, thanks!

  7. FYI you don't really need to use a drill press to enlargen the hole if your Yuki Pearl doesn't fit! You can use a round Diamond Needle-File / Hand-File - aluminum is very soft and will probably take at most a gentle quarter-turn back and forth by hand. Just turn the needle file a bit inside the hole and check every quarter or half turn if your Pearl fits. Always good to have a set of these inexpensive Diamond Files for a variety of minor watch repairs: https://www.amazon.com/Premium-Grade-Diamond-Needle-Stone-Protian/dp/B0048087RQ
  8. It should be obvious to any vintage Rolex lover that the stock bezel inserts on all Cartel Vintage Rolex watches are outright hideous. I was also never happy with any of the alternatives offered by Phong, Yuki & the rest - their fonts are inaccurate, they are lacking serifs, and both numbers and tick-marks are way too perfect and too straight for a Vintage Rolex Insert. I think many of you have heard about the saying "If you want something done right, do it yourself". So that's what I did! I have a particular fondness to Fat Font and "Kissing 40" Inserts and the bezel insert was that impor
  9. Shamed be he who thinks evil of it Perhaps he wants to clear out old stock. I don't know enough about 5711s to give you a definitive answer, but there should be plenty of posts re: the 5711 either on this forum or on RWI, so try using the search function if nobody chimes in here.
  10. FYI - unless you really want this particular (old) version, there is a much much much newer version out there. The watch in the link you provided is from 2017. This here should be the latest version, albeit from a different maker: http://www.trustytime.biz/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=39_199&products_id=19078 In the future, you can tell when the watch was added to the site by looking just below the pictures, there it says something along the lines of... "This product was added to our catalog on Wednesday 26 September, 2018."
  11. Hey, I sent you a PM a few days ago in case you didn't see it
  12. Just keep in mind that the 6238 had a symmetric case, so the side where the crown sits is less thick than on a 6263. If you use a 6263 case with a smooth bezel, it wont look right. Rolex made the crown-side fatter than the other side when they started using 7mm crowns and screw-down pushers (although 6239s exist in both variations). Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
