  1. Anyone currently has this model yet?

    They cant make the subdials bigger pecause the 6 hr one will "bite" the 6 hr mark at the bottom (this is known as bleed) so the only solution its to print all subdials as big as posible. one thing we all should suggest to the fqactories via TDs is to make a speedy with gen specs but not functional complication (chronograph) just like that gen spect 23j daytona with no fuctional but correct case dimension if noob can make a good dial and a good case that would make a super rep and it deserves to exist imo.
  2. Planet Ocean Chronograph options

    Hi well the problem with omega chronographs is the subdials spacing, in all model spacing its off compared to the gens, from the mythical speedmaster to the modern chronos, all of them have wrong case dimensions and wrong dial subspacing so they are not very popular if you want more info about a particular model is a good idea to post a reference to know which model are you adressing, other good idea is to do you own research on omega reps, chronos in general are not considered very good. the spacing its bad due the movement used (a7750, st19 or quartz microstepper) gens use 321, 861, 1861 and 9300 movements
  3. Thats a really useful blueprint tyvm, do you have more of this?
  4. Agreed prices and dealers can be found searching at the forum, no mystery part dealers with "extra good quality" for $200 more, here is the way to go: 1.-Study your prefered model (reference, size, color, material) 2.-Search within the forums for those parts 3.-buy all once you know as much as possible about parts this will save tremendous amount of time and money, this magnificent forum have several threads with build details from several members around, check those too! P.S. sometimes its better to hunt for a watch already built if you dont have all the tools/skills/practice needed to build a high end rep.
  5. Best Daytona rep

    Also a big fan of vintage Daytonas, I guess is all about the sensations of the watches on your wrist, my very first rep was Tag microkrogirder 45 mm very chunky and very fake, then a Pam 388 and IWC also very beefy until I got my first 42mm a bargain LMPO v1 and then i knew it, my favorite size its 42 mm, after some time i got a 5513 from cartel then a 1680 mbw and a 16600 (my most used rep thus far and the most popular rolex rep model) recently got interested in vtg daytonas, currently building my first high end with an MQ panda, viet case, and v72, cant wait to see all together, i have been considering getting myself a cartel to practice shaving the case to make it thinner, we'll see.
  6. WTB 6239/6240 Pushers

    Daniel Wong pushers (6239 Valjoux 23/ mystery movement case) Pusher Cap: 2,7mm height Pusher stem: 6,64 mm Pusher base: 3,2 mm (this is the one that seems to be bigger for you, isn't it?) you have the Ofrei ones and they have same specs as per gen. Why don't you try to get a full set (pair) and replace them both instead of replacing just one, set should match. hope it helps

    Specs: Silix case 6538 Athaya Brevet crown and tube Swiss 2836 movement Tiger concept second hand Clarks vintage Tudor hands set Helenarou 6538 dial Sternkreuz ST19 Rivet bracelet Nato RAF $ Fat Springbars Done thus far: case tapped to accept Athaya crown and tube, lug holes drilled to accept fat spring bars, lugs hand chamfered, plexy trimmed. pending to do: Relume 3 hands and dial to match, modify bezel shape to slim and change profile, age the insert install Athayas pearl with matching lume, remove engravings and engrave with better fonts, make a true gilt 4 liner solid gold dial. I wanna say thanx to many members that helped me out with tips and sharing knowledge and with their posts, hope its doesn't bother since it's an often seen build thread, prices are by memory to encourage other members to try their builds. so the pics: Silix disassembly Drilling and tapping the case and lug holes Athayas crown and tube ready to install crown replaced Chamfering the lugs some polishing and not chamfering the lug holes Lug holes not chamfered To be continued....

  15. Part sourcing for 6263 build

    The sellers of the bezel keeps changing ebay username keep looking and suddenly a "new seller will appear" but pictures are always the same and price its fair tho it shouldn't take more than 2 months to appear, also you can contact tonny and he should be able to source this one for you, thansk for sharing those pics, I am doing the same build slowly getting all parts.
