  1. My last build 1680 red

    So you know in the future... Ruby's insert is much-much better.. The bezel is finished more correctly than the WSO too.. I don't want to pour salt in the wounds.. But a tip for the future!

  3. My last build 1680 red

    Which word do you mean when you say "mask"? Say it in italian (I speak some).. Because I don't understand what you're trying to say from the context.
  4. Looking for good bracelets

    What do you mean by "higher" quality? Closer to gen finish? Definitely ARF as far as finish and fitment SELs and tolerances.. They have a Milgauss bracelet... However as far as the TT-bracelet for the Sub... That's one of the principal reasons speaking against me ever purchasing one. Even if go on a modding spree, regrinding, resanding, rebuffing, rebrushing.. You lose most of the gold layer and need some really skilled plating skills/connections to refinish it. None that I know of would even come close to trying to find a gen bracelet.
  5. Sub dial differences

    IMO... The dial printing isn't the biggest thing. It's the 3 and 6 indices and the triangle... That screams rep a before spacing/kerning.

    The mask? if you look at side profils and top view the bezel is incorrect and recommended to be switched out

    Also.. There's a Classifieds-section!

    First cigar of the year.. cold as hell still...
  9. My last build 1680 red

    Change the insert and it looks awesome! http://rubyswatch.com/products/k14-|-submariner-|-5513-|-bezel-insret-1703 http://rubyswatch.com/products/k14-|-submariner-|-5513-|-bezel-insret-1703 What bezel is used? (because the whole bezel set incl. retainer is just 50 USD extra...)
  10. I have a 36mm gen dial and hands, but work out a dial first, and read up on 2824. This is a quite bad case as far as spelling and similar is concerned. http://rafflesdials.com/rolex-signed-vintage-style-of-36mm-stainless-steel-datejust-watch-case-with-smooth-bezel-and-20mm-lugs-size-fit-eta-2824-movement-and-dial-in-28-0-28-5mm/ My tip is either buy a 36mm vintage DJ and sell the mvmt and replace it with say a ETA 2472 or 2783. You get a full case,dial and hands. As a "pack". Or build Everything from scratch with bits and pieces here and there...
  11. Nice AM 1675 dial required

    I have a gen trit 16750 dial with hands, and plexi, however completely different hand stack. Otherwise I agree with Paul.

    For curiousity, what you asking for it?
  13. 16610 JF sub pics

    I both agree and disagree.. There is definitely some optical effect too.. Although the seconds hand lume seems a bit sloppy, could also be slightly due to light effect. Same for minute hand. If light effect, then it should be "lighter" on the sloping towards the dial in the north and not south direction comparing to the rest. RED arrows = clipping/software effect? BLUE arrows = sloppy hands lume? However, dial + hands is what I would have relumed to match a gen insert asap... So does it matter?
  14. Not "equally" reasonably priced, but more on the high side of "acceptable" I would ask for more pics if one is interested... ---------------- https://www.thewatchshopbirmingham.com/store/rolex-3135-parts/ 1200 USD is 980 EUR, thanks Trump! 3135 CASE-CRYSTAI-18K GOLD BEZEL MODEL 16220 SERIAL IS L WHICH MAKES IT 1989 SAFFIRE CRYSTAL $2,795.00 $1,195.00 Add to Cart Available Shipping Time: 3-5 days1

    Did you supply genuine dial or did he? Also... care to share the costs for others to know (combined aproximate cost) I'm guessing it's for a 6536/6538?
