  1. Hi folks I have a really nice rolex spider dial where the white gold markers have aged presenting as an almost gold color. It looks great, however my franken runs a 2824 and all the hands I've come across are silver. Is there a process I can use to artificially age the hands to match the markers? I'm also on the look out for a 3035 and will get gen tritium hands one day. But for now it's 2824 and home lume job. Any thoughts appreciated.
  2. Have you done it and were you reasonably happy with the outcome?
  3. What can you do with the stubby lugs? To be fair I haven’t placed a crown in position to get perspective as I’m moving house and needed to pack it away. Maybe it isn’t that bad?
  4. I got a few of these recently. What do you think besides the fat lugs and stubby crown guards? I think they're a lot better than the earlier ones. Apologies for the threadjack consider it a bump 🙂
  5. Hey guys I just got a couple of these sub cases from StarTime. What do you guys think? The lugs are a little fat and crown guards stubby but doesn't look as bad as previous models. Rolex Stainless Replacement Case, -- RSCSS: Star Time Supply
  6. 3035 is a thicker movement with a different offset between stem and dial. If you put a 3135 in a 3035 case you’d need a dial spacer and a longer pinion for hands. I’m also after a 3035 for a 16800 build. Not easy to find at a decent price.

  8. Thanks good advice. Under 50x magnification I noticed the tube had split. Even crimping was no good. I ended up ordering new hands instead.
  9. Hey guys I just transplanted hands between clone 3135s. Since, the gen seconds hand has fallen off twice. I'm using a press to put them on and they click on nicely but fall off if the case is given a shock. I don't have broaching tools are there any tips on what could be wrong/options for tightening the sucker up? Thanks...
  10. Check what I found at the bottom of the watch box. I haven’t worn this for 5+ years. Thank you covid and boredom for reuniting me with this little champ [emoji1374][emoji1362]
