    Refinish gen dials

    I have recently bought 2 gen slightly damaged IWC Big Pilot dial on fleebay, and I am wondering if there is someone who can fix the damaged spots on these dials. The damage was caused by crappy storage. These were relatively cheap, the one with the damaged 4 marker was bought for $16, and the other one was $41. (excl. shipping cost) I thought this is a very nice for gen dials which I am planning to use in a franken project.

    IWC Big Pilot Patrouille Suisse

    It is indeed a big watch, but it does not feel that big and heavy. The rep strap is replaced by a Donerix strap which looks so much better. The sandblasted crown is replaced by a SS crown from another BP, like on the gen.
  8. It has been a while since I have bought my last rep because I have started collecting Mil watches, and my focus for the last 6 months was on them. But I was still looking at reps, and when I saw a very nice rep of a Big Pilot on RWI I had to buy it. This was a IWC Big Pilot Patrouille Suisse made by ZF. Compared to the gen there are a lot of differences, but it is still a very nice watch. (I really like the sandblasted case) GEN: REP:

    My first watch from the ground up

    Congrats. Been there, and done that. For me it is the most rewarding part of this hobby. Sourcing parts, servicing the movement and building the watch makes a watch more special for me.
