  1. Please let me know if you ever have a 5512 or 5513 with a chapter ring.
  2. Yup. Can't get more reliable service.
  3. I love these threads, but it's torture waiting for mine!
  4. I've just been doing Buffalo Trace. IMO, it's 80% quality bourbon at $25 a fifth.
  5. Pretty sure someone that's been around as long as DVNE knows that. I think he was just looking for the maker.
  6. I don't believe the 3135 appeared until the 16610. The 3035 still resides in the 168000, to my knowledge. All youd have have to do to check is change the date. If it goes clockwise, it's a 3135. Counterclockwise, it's a 3035.
  7. I don't know the reference number, but the date finger did not fit without modification to make the hole slightly larger.
  8. For fs sake. That's fantastic.
  9. I think the 501b was the end links before the 93250. As such, I think the 501b was used as the "service" end link.
  10. I guess that's the option I'll go with if I can't figure out how to remove it. But being a day/date, it has a three position keyless. A 5513 is a no-date. I know some have made this mod so it is only a two position keyless, I'm just curious as to the best route for it.
  11. While @rolojack does his magic for me, I picked up a NOS ETA2846. What's the most common surgery performed on these movements to remove day/date? Just remove the disks and file down the middle position on the keyless? Or are there replacement parts that you guys are using?
  12. Very nice. I've admired these for a while. I owned an Ocean One Vintage, but never bonded with it.
