  1. If you catch Daytona-fever remember that you can always use also valjoux 23 to build frozen ones i am currently working on: v72 6263 panda PN ( viet case, MQ dial, gen parts the rest) V23 6239 "The PN" ( DW slim case, DW dial, rest viet) V726 6263 Big Red ( Tonny Dial, all viet) I prefer cousins pushers cause i think the relation price quality its really good and gen are just insanely high thise days
  2. There are several watches that i would never buy the gen because the reps are close enought: -CrPO dial, case, hands, bezel are like 98% close to the gen (got the gen parts back when available at cousinsuk) people complains about the movement but is it not visible on your wrist -16610LV TC damn close too -new daytonas with SA4130, there are waiting lists and for that money you can franken a couple of reps with gen parts ( big red and panda)
  3. Some sister forums good reputation members send samples to analyze to a metallurgic lab and they came up as real 904L, the main property of such steel is corrosion resistant specially for salt water and sweat, not the color or "shine" as they say. I dont really know what to think.
  4. Nothing closer other than wm9 but the only way to get one its m2m, I never seen one of those for sale, the best in rep world is the JF and costs 50€ but not flat four.
  5. Here is a shot attemp with my new phone sorry for the dust over the crystal
  6. Hi I Since Tc its gone i have been building a TC kermit (Rolex submariner 16610LV) first i had in mind to drop a Yuki or a SH3135 but had the chance to snap a gen 3135 for a very fair price that ended up inside my favorite rep (16600), so the kermit went to the bottom of my drawer for several months and I want to finish it this month this is what i have so far: -Brand new TC case + bezel + caseback + crown + gasket -Brand new TC crystal -Used TC bezel not flat 4 -Brand new submariner hands not LV but green lume (vtg tudor clarks) -Used KH LV Dial -TC DWO -Swiss ETA 2824-2 -BP SD Bracelet So i will be eternally grateful if some one can post the schematics of a TC movement holder since i used a plastic one but feels bad and i would like to have a decent one instead, its been one year waiting for this single part and none pops up at any forum, so the measures of the ring will be greatly appreciated to make a custom one from my watchmaker latte. thnaks in advance to this wonderful forums and their amazing users.

    Some things are better left unsaid, good luck with your quest my friend, patience its the key to this game.
  9. Hi again, I got 2 days ago a $900 usd panda dial and the closest to me its number 1. compared to the gen: -For most people they will see if you clothes and vehicle, age and work position match with your watch so if you drive a porsche or ferrari people will asume gen daytona ($78000 usd) -For experts and replica fans it will be and instant tell but to be called out its very unlike since probably the one spotting its also a replica owner/lover. -Among many gen forums members, you will be an atrocious monster of fakest fakitty eww and deserve to stay the rest of your life in exile.
  10. Hey drummania you can make one out of a tube, just find one with the inner diameter close to your mvt diameter and then sand down the outter diameter to fit your case, with a file you can remove parts to give space for the stem and finally a mini drill/dremmel and tap for the holes, it seems more difficult than it really is if you have the proper tools. Yuki sells them too to adap a 282X to agen spec case (like tc) cheers
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Thats a really useful blueprint tyvm, do you have more of this?
  14. 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.
