  1. Hi Mark,

     

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

     

    Thanks!

  2. 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

    Mixed feelings about my work...

    Thanks for your toughts guys. Appreciate it. Indeed 2 sides to this story.
  4. 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

    GEN vs REP: Breitling rotor cal. 17

    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.
  9. 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!

    Fake watches are for fake people...

    Exactly. Are Tempus, Blaken and Artisan de Geneve fake Rolexes?.....
  11. Great write up. The reason reversing wheels are stiff is not because the pivots and/or clicks are dry or gummed up. It is because there is too much debree or oil between the brass plates and clicks. The clearance between them is nihil. So even the wrong cleaning solution that will leave the tiniest amount of settlement can make the turning of the brass plates feel 'stiff'. Also solutions that will make the brass react can have the same effect. That's why ETA recommends replacement. They are too finicky to service for most watchmakers. PS: I usually throw them a couple of minutes in some naphtha and afterwards put the tiniest amount of 9010 on the ETA spots. Usually does the trick. A proper oiler and technique is essential of course. Sometimes it doesn't work and I don't mess around. I than just replace the f#ckers.
  12. Can't wait to get my hands on one of those. Looks very nice! watchbus.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=3865&extra=page%3D1 video:

    SA3135 stem?

    Oh yeah... just so you know. Genuine Rolex stem won't fit.

    New breed Breits

    No. Just observations after watching the video - no anti reflective coating (huge tell) - wacky pearl - no serial# engraved ... really what are they thinking? I clicked away after that
