  1. It was 2 cases the a7753 and the v23/mysterious thinnest, I think the main difference its the caseback thickness, but after reading lots of posts about DWs they were changing so many "versions" were avaliable back in time.
  2. Thanks alligoat another part coming now so we'll see if all fits once all the parts arrive, this is the list of errors that I made for rushing: 1.- bought a 6239 case but really wanted a 6263 Paul newman panda 2.-bought 302 pushers but mines should be 301 instead, i'll save the 1st pair for another proyect 3.-planned to used DW hands so had to get a new valjoux 72 ones since DW were for a7750 so fa so good, just waiting all the parts to arrive to put all together and take better pictures, been very busy with xmas but really happy with this first build, i been really tempted to work also in a 1680 old school MBW swiss mvt that i want to tune up with a MQ 1680 red dial, relumed and a gen mvt and i in the other hand a 6538 silix, but will focus on the daytona until its done. here some pics of the movement that i took with a cellphone magnifyier, hour wheel and washer removed, cheers everyone!
  3. merry xmas to all! movement has not stem for v23, trying to find the proper one...
  4. I Got a Explorer II without any paint so followed a tutorial and painted in black with enamel paint, you gotta apply several layers letting them dry 1 day at least for each layer, tutorial its quite simple and no special tools needed but a microfiber to remove excess of paint and tape to protect crystal, hope you find someone to help you with.
  5. I'll have the tap and die set ready
  6. Hello alligoat, thank you for the input, the previous owner of the case mentioned that this particular case was able to take ofrei pushers for 6263 with no problems or mods, direct swap (apparently he tried), in the other hand, I wanted to install gen pushers so I need proper tubes, I will post pictures as soon as all parts arrive (most still in the mail) Yes sub 6 will be frozen until I can source a valjoux 72.
  7. Hi everyone I am working in my first proyect a DW 6263 Paul Newman Daytona, been reading for several months and learning about this reference and saving for some the parts and seems like soon i will have all parts needed. movement was a pain in ass. this is the xmas list for santa: 1.- DW 6239 case m2m described as slim caseback for valjoux 72 movement $350 2.- MQ Rolex Daytona singer refinished 6263 Paul Newman panda dial V72 $950 2.- Gen Valjoux 23 movement recently serviced $800 3.- 25-21 rolex crystal $110 4.- Bakelite bezel $130 5.- 24 p302 pushers $100 6.- 24 7030 tube $12 7.- Gen 24 703 crown $100 8.- 571 endlinks $50 9.- 78350 19 bracelet $30 10. Daytona hands set $250 Wanted to ask to the members that are familiar to this cases if its possible to make this change from 6239 to 6263 just changing pushers, bezel and dial is it possible? I am about to order the tube but i see two at cousins (C33419 and C8363 one its 5,2 mm leght and the other 6,2 mm leght) not sure wich one to order. Some parts are in the mail some other am ordering this days but i will be posting pictures of the progress. cheers and merry xmas,
  8. count me in! awesome build
  9. Well I say dont go gen, and I'll try to explain why, I came to the reps world looking for a Mikrogirder tag heuher lol , here, fallen in love with a Noob CrPO 42 mm orange markers black bezel rubber black with orange stiches. It was my "grail" ( I was a student so i cant even afford the rep lol) waited literally for years for an m&m deal until i gave up and got the rep, long short story ended up buying the gen when i bought the gen the market price for this ones was around 5000ish new, i did see one yesterday in local stores for 2500, morals: this models dont keep their value in time as well as other models do, (check speedmasters prices evolution from 2005 to now.) So for me this a reason for not to get a gen CrPO i kept the rep to wear and keep my gen flawless, when i started to see the value dropping, watch was sold even the rep costed me 400 usd and now its 200ish.
  10. hello new at this forum wanted to ask if any one can tell who made this dial? and greetings for everyone.
