    It’s a ETA 2892 isn’t it?

    Beautiful, a mini version of my favourite movement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. All of that is bang on... ....it's just such a shame the 116520 has possibly the worst dial in the recent history of daytona reps, they had to go and [censored] something up didn't they?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It's not just the dealers it's the factories that are worse than ever. Noob could make a 116520 or 116520 with a better dial and bezel. There seems to be some tacit agreement with ARF that one factory will sell a good looking tona and the other will produce a functioning watch with gen thickness. They knew between them that the price of gen parts would rocket so to throw together a decent Franken, not even with gen parts, you need to buy both watches. Then pay a modder to shave the dial. I draw the line. [censored] that. We've suspected deliberate collusion for some time, this absurd scenario confirms it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Reliability on the new noob is fine, lots in the wild now and no horror stories. Dial on the steel version is a joke, completely wrong. Bezel isn't great either. Dial on the ceramic is better in terms of the ROLEX spacing but the Subdials are too fat. Once seen you cannot unsee. Bezel is poor compared to the ARF as well. For a Franken project it isn't going to be cheap. The fact noob have a functioning thin watch is pushing the price of gen daytona parts up, certainly on the steel model, on the ceramic forget it, gen parts are impossible to find. A good alternative is buy the noob and if you can get hold of an ARF bezel insert and dial do that. Even the BP dial is miles better. Problem is both BP and ARF dials are a fraction too thick so will need to be shaved in order to fit the noob case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Noob slim Daytona

    The bezel and dial aren't great. Rehaut is slightly too high. I'd wait as I think noob used up some old parts just to rush this out, have heard a few times that a v2 is coming now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. V6s is no longer available, even if dealers say they can get it you will get a v7 Sa3135 is ok but would benefit from a service as if it packs in you won't be able to get replacement parts, unlike the sh3135 or eta movements The new seconds at 6 movement in the ARF has been around a little while (it was previously used in the newest iwc 3714) and touch wood there's been no stories about it playing up or even stuttering seconds like the old one. The seconds works but the other subdials don't. There's no reason why you can't remove the deco plate, use a different rotor or thinner caseback, we've seen Domi offering this service over at RWI Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ARF 116660 or ARF 126660

    Only thing that annoys me about the ARF 126660 is as you say Rob the sharp bezel teeth. They are too pointy compared with the gen, something you can't unsee once seen. Otherwise it's fantastic from what I've seen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gen or Aftermarket stem for yuki / sh3135?

    Thanks @Dawagner. I luckily managed to get a gen one from Italy for a decent price.

    The ARF DSSD 116660. Comment on the dial?

    The OGEV looks way off on intime but the images posted above from Toro look miles better
  14. Any feedback on whether it's worth 1. Changing the stock sh3135 stem and 2. If so whether a standard aftermarket like Clarks is ok or whether gen is significantly stronger and more reliable? I've usually gone for gen anyway purely as I like as many gen parts as possible if they are readily available but I'm having a hard time getting hold of a gen stem having had two empty envelopes arrive from eBay lately and had to fork out a load of unnecessary customs fees that will be a ballache to claim back. Any feedback appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. The sel looks nice and the rehaut is incredible. Noob did this really well. If I could get an sa3135 version with sel this good I think I'd be embarking on my next franken project Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
