  1. When I did the 1520 it was the Duoshock KIF springs that got me wobbling, until I learn't how to handle them. I learnt the hard way by breaking the leg on one. If you haven't done them or need to know how, let us know.
  2. You'll find your inbox full of offers from vultures! Nice watch, it will look beautiful with a nicely aged 6542 bezel on. Good luck with your search!
  3. Happy new year guys & girls! May all your reps be A+++ one to ones
  4. Sticking with 2.4's. No sign of ice here...yet!
  5. The best policy is to send the money as the others have and you won't hear from me again. Thanks guys 2006 & 2013 were very lucrative years for me. Hoping that 2020 will be just as good❤️
  6. Thanks, I received the money and you will hear no more from me...Unless you're a naughty boy again.
  7. An option? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Watch-Hands-IWC-3777-Pilot-Valjoux-Cal-7750-Chrono-6-Set-Luminous/292942996105?hash=item4434c36289:g:JyMAAOSwRNhbqphg
  8. I'd have to reject that based purely on the centre seconds hand not reseting to 12 correctly😋 So this started as a 116520, removed the crown guards, fitted pump pushers. Butchered a 4130, printed up a plastic looking dial and probably charged a butt clenching amount for it. Money just can't buy class.
  9. Yes, there would be a redundant setting position. Only way around it would be to swap in a no date setting lever (if it exists?)
  10. Questions I would ask Trusty. Ask for a 10 second minimum timegrapher reading in 4 positions before the service. Same after service. Dial up, dial down, pendant up, pendant down. Ask if mainspring is replaced with a decent (Swiss) one. Ask if cap jewels are removed, cleaned and lubricated. Ask what lubricants are used. Moebius lubricants are pretty standard with decent watchmakers. If any of these conditions are not met, don't waste your money.
  11. https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/flat-ring-assorted-bags or https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/o-ring-assorted-bags
  12. First time I've seen both those Rolexes with the Day/Date GMT (?) what are the model numbers? Modified Valjoux movements?
  13. The Powermatic 80 has been around a few years now. It's calibre is ETA C07.111. It is a modified ETA 2824. It beats at 21,000 and is a perfect upgrade for the AP Divers movement as the Gen AP 3120 movement also beats at 21,000. 80 hr power reserve, what's not to like? They are reportedly very accurate too (think COSC spec) If you keep an eye on eBay, they can be picked up as a complete watch (Tisot) at quite reasonable prices ~£150
  14. Has anyone who knows what they're looking at done a tear down of a broken movement yet to find out what's breaking? Just read some of that thread posted above regarding "setting" and it looks like an awful lot of them have broken!
