    Last 127 build in my queue is finally finished

    Working on several price options to make them more affordable and more available to members. I'll be posting them on my section.

    Very nice build, excellent case work, congrats!
  3. Hi Everyone, After over 4 years and over 200 127s later I am finally finished with my order queue. I can now concentrate on selling complete builds on my section, I will also put them up in the M2M section every once in awhile. Now have more time to experiment with other types of builds as well as vintage builds. I can contribute more time to help the rep community contributing more time to the forums. And last but definitely never least, I will also have more time to dedicate to my own family who has been very patient with me. Want to thank all of you who have been so patient throughout the entire time, some of which had to wait a year. For those of you, and there are many, who still own the watch I built you, wear it in good health and I hope it has brought you joy! Here is the last build in the queue, she’ll be headed to Singapore…
  4. Happy Birthday marlin22!

    New Super Swiss Marlin Fiddy arrival

    Actually this is far from the standard 6497-1 Swiss movements originally fitted into the rep watches, this is a true Swiss 6497-2 movement, the same as the one found in the gen but this has the rep bridges. Everything on the movement is gen ETA 6497-2 parts except for the bridges and swan neck components. If you look under the balance you will see the ETA stamp and the numbers 6497-2. Hey AJ don't sell yourself short man, you have a winner here

    No thanks necessary, the pleasure was all mine!! it's not everyday I get to deal with a true class act such as yourself Enjoy that beauty.....
  10. Hi Guys, Here is the latest addition the The Vintage Series collection, it's not complete yet but I wanted to put up some progress pictures. This watch highlights all the different options that can be added to the VS line. It includes custom engravings throughout, custom painted dial (I will be making my own dials for these builds shortly), custom modded and engraved movement. Here are some progress pictures....more to come.... Please note the watch is not complete, at the time I took the pictures it did not have the CG on and had not been polished yet... Custom painted and lumed dial in a classic brown. The hands were aged and lumed to match. My All Asian modded movement with vintage custom engravings can be seen behind the custom engraved plexi. This modern movement makes this watch a daily beater and will be reliable for years. Custom engravings through out the watch including between the lugs, solid case back(inside and out) and display case back on the plexi glass. Here are the VS markings on the main plate under the balance, each VS will have its own unique number assigned to it. Best part of all is this watch is reliable and robust, a true daily beater that will last for years to come...Cleaned, oiled and adjusted to the same specs as all my modern modded watches. More to come.........

    Trying some in house strap making...

    Tomorrow I will try different stitching options, this was just a fast and dirty hand stitch to see how it comes together. Here you can see some work still needs to be don on the text alignment.
  12. I am currently doing some R&D on in house straps for my Vintage Series watches. They will have matching numbers to go along with the watch so it is all one package. I'll be using vintage leather so it will look of age. I am trying to keep as much as I can in house, so far I can do the movement mods, engravings, working on the dials and now the straps..... I hope to post a completed watch with all the VS parts in it soon. Here are some pictures of a practice run, this is using new leather not vintage stock. Sorry for the blurry pictures.... Still need to work out some kinks but I feel they are looking good so far...

    My first 6152/1 lug engravings

    Thanks G, coming from you that is a great complement! All is well, very busy these days thanks my friend, I hope everything is good with you too!! For the time being I am only doing this on my builds I don't have enough experience under my belt to risk someone else's baby. I'll post when the service will be available. That said NightWatch above offers this service and more.
