  1. 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
  2. Review: Noob v7 submariner 116610LN

    Funny in 7 years worth of revisions they still can't get the SEL quite right, not that anyone other than us nerds would know what a SEL is let alone spot it as a tell. Nice piece and the insert numbers look lighter than some v7's I've seen which is a step in the right direction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. What exactly is the weak point of the SA3135?

    You're thinking of the a3135 There is nothing wrong with the sa3135, in fact it's a great copy just like the other Asian movements that suffers from poor assembly. The sa3135 got bad press because noob used a load of v1's when they released the v6s series of sub and dssd. So the weak stem issue which was well documented with the v1 reared its head again. Even the stem wasn't that bad but when you get an achilles heel the noisy minority are those who are listened to especially by noobs. The v2 is much better. Solved the problem. But like all Asian movements the material is not what you would expect to see on a swiss. The wheels are [censored] like on all Asian movements. So for a long time everybody digged it out because the automatic assumption is it can't take gen parts because it's not an identical copy. In reality, with some modification, guys like[mention=33155]maxracingshox[/mention] have proven that you CAN put gen parts on the sa3135. The big weak points are the driving and reversing wheels. These can be switched with the gen but you have to grind the jewel down. Yes it is aggro but a good watchsmith will do this for you and then the sa3135 is rock solid. With an ultrasonic clean, re-oil and re-assemble it's a fantastic movement. The sh3135 is the yuki. Now the big problem with this movement is expectation. It needs a service out of the box. And to make matters worse, a movement that requires a service out of the box is sent to another Chinese sweat shop and had part of it removed and engraved, then, in true Chinese tradition, drenched in oil and mixed with pubic hair, shrapnel and god knows what else. Then the unserviced movement goes out to the likes of ourselves having been running with bits of metal etc in it which causes further damage. Not only this but again the positioning of the jewel causes a problem. So again it really needs to go to a watchsmith that knows the movement. More parts on the yuki are interchangeable with the gen out of the box which gives the impression it's better than the sa3135. It isn't, it's just different. The a3135 is a 2836 with a decorated plate and doesn't need to be discussed here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Any idea which DSSD rep I have?

    It's a cheapie. The repair will be more than the watch is worth I'm afraid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The sa3135 will take genuine parts it just needs minor modification. It will accept the driving and reversing wheels if you grid down the jewel. And once you do this, on the newer version that doesn't have the weak jewel, you have a surprisingly robust movement Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Newest noob 114060 is OK but dial is fantasy and engraving still says 116010 JF rehaut is nowhere near as good as noob New BP has the wrong engraving between the lugs too (1141060 lmfao) Best combination would be JF movement, noob hands, noob case, probably BP insert, JF bracelet, BP dial Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I actually don't really know so much about panerai, just the models that I know. I don't know if the mods would be happy with me linking it but there is a fantastic guide put together by ALE over on RWI which would tell you all you need to know.
