  1. Sad story and super sorry to hear mate! O boy is a slippery slope especially for honest sellers as ebay & paypal are 100% pro buyer and the decide quickly against you as a seller without having any clue about watches or parts ofc. Yet, this is far from legal and I would put in legal efforts if I were you. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Simple, get a 16520 preferrably with tritium dial and wait a few years and have it appreciate in value. Almost impossible to rep and relatively rare compared to the later models. Oh and a beautiful timeless design on top! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have found this very nice genuine set of vintage tritium hands that where sold to me as sub hands. However, the minute hand seemed very long to me and once measured it turned out that it actually is 13mm (from mid pinion to tip). However, there is not much info about hands so I wanted to ask the experts. Is this hand set exclusively for the 1016 explorer or where there other models using a bit longer minute hand too? From my understanding the standard sub minute hand is 12mm. Any input is appreciated
  4. Always nice to see 4 digit tona builds coming to life! Here one of my v726 buids. Parts are still available but prices are constantly going up..keep us posted mate Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. This is gen but be careful about bait and switch etc. what‘s the price tag? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Very nice! Congrats Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. very nice but a gen dial would still be hell of an upgrade! may I ask where you got the bracelet from?
  8. Yup of course Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Your stories are always amazing mate and great to here how the watch market (especially rolex) was in the past. I thought the Daytona was always hard to get except of the 4 digit ones that were basically sitting in the shelf for long. Yet, it seems like you got them super easily? In any case at this point in time I was barely born so missed all those opportunities of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I used a brand new Zenith 400 and bought all the rolex parts in order to convert it so genuine hands fit. No need in my eyes to change bridges and reduce the beat rate! Sent from
  10. Have you ever completed the watch? My recent build, all gen except midcase: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. beautiful piece. shoot me a message regarding it, I might have a case which would work. can' send you any message, your postbox seems to be full.
  12. Nice watch but there are way better VN dials out there than yours. If you don‘t change it at least swap the coronet of the dial with a gen one. Hell of a difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Okey no worries but go and compare high res pictures of this particular dial and you will see that it‘s not gen. Maybe he doesn‘t know, it‘s quite comon to replace dials to significantly raise prices! Most 4 digit tonas out there are butchered pieces. One of the most difficult watches to buy and not be screwed by shady dealers (not implying your guy is but probably he doesn‘t know either). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I assure you this newman dial is not gen Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
