  1. Remove the balance wheel and fork if you can and see if the gear train moves freely than. Such an immediate stop sounds strange and is usually a loose screw or part.
  2. New versions (>2018) have the Lasered logo en reference# underneath the Balance wheel instead of engraved and are all 25 jewels.
  3. Yeah the old designs rule... after the weird Chronomat B01 came out Breitling has lost it’s way IMHO
  4. Breitling is lost.... the Genuines are a waste of money as they depreciate faster than the Zimbabwe dollar. So the reps are also in that same category for me. Nice ... bu so are Oris divers
  5. Hi Mark,


    Hoe kan ik je bereiken? Gaat om een repair request.



  6. Hi, Does anyone know where I can find Jaeger watch parts? I’m looking for a Cal 975 hour wheel. Alteady tried: Cousins and Ebay. Seems like Jaeger keeps a closed parts loop.... Thanks
  7. Thanks for your toughts guys. Appreciate it. Indeed 2 sides to this story.
  8. Hi Guys, I know I haven’t posted much last couple of month. Busy with family and work. Still into watches and reps but on a slower pace and smaller scale. I still build some really good Frankens from time to time for family, friends, co-workers etc. Most of the time they keep them and enjoy them but over time I also lose sight of some people and the watches I build. They get sold, traded in and change hands. Recently I saw some of my work popping up on legitimate sites. Respectable sellers and jewellers are selling some my watches via Chrono24 and other platforms as genuine with ditto pricing. I feel somehow responsible for that even though I have nothing to do with the misrepresentation. What do you guys think? Mark
  9. If I had a pic of the movement I could answer the question myself
  10. Thanks buddy. I actuallly know very little about Rolex believe it or not ... I'm a Breit guy.
  11. Saw this in a local pawn shop. No papers. Thanks Mark
  12. Gen is on the left (and top) unfortunately. Finish is much rougher on the rep. Look at the Cote De Geneve and filling of the letters 'Breitling'. But it is damn hard to see. Even more if you don't know what you are looking for.
  13. Here are some pics of the gen rotor vs the rep rotor form the Noob SuperOcean II 44mm. Noob did a good job but the gen is a nice upgrade!
