  1. Any barefoot walker around here?

    its too cold in Germany 10 months out of the year for the barefoot thing. while at the beach? or out in the woods? why not. in the city? nah. glass hurts when you step on it, and in Germany there's a lot of glass around in cities. i just smoke weed and hash to get my necessary hippie vibes. not as public as going barefoot in populated places, but that's also kinda the point for real tho, good luck + have fun, everyone I know who does this is pretty kind and friendly..so maybe you are too.
  2. Midnight in Alaska

    no bears! haaaa
  3. Story of a 12-year old replica watch

    this is a great thread.
  4. Watches You've Killed

    I lost a Panerai once while surfing. Was on a NATO, it just went somewhere when I wiped out. (Head-high waves, and the board took a good chunk out of my left thumb when i was in the washing machine...it probably got cut off my wrist at that point, tbh.) Broke a JLC one time after laying down a scooter. Pothole bump got me after having a couple drinks with a conductor of a major orchestra. That was a mistake. Not since will i ever get on a motorcycle or scooter after having ANY alcohol AT ALL. Killed a couple more watches trying to work on them or mod them, but they were already dead. Oh yeah, they were reps. I'm waaaay too low on money to treat gens that way. Maybe one day i'll be like those gentleman drivers who wear their Pateks while they work on their own Ferraris or something... Till then if I'm doing something where there's a chance I could lose a digit or two I wear reps or Seiko.
  5. Watches You've Killed

    oh man, please tell me you put a movement and dial back in that 'born from dragons' case !!!!
  6. Why I love quality reps

    OP: haha, u just did some 'aging' ! 'vintagizing' ! i love how reps allow us all to actually use watches. I'm sorry, i've owned a couple vintage rollies, and i've never taken one up a glacier or even fly fishing or cycling on fire roads. I'm not rich enough to risk that kind of thing. Reps? I'll rock climb in them. nanuq: holy sh----- what a story. also: you have a 6536????????????
  7. Rolex 1970 6263 Daytona Big Red with a hearty patina....

    that 'salt' on the subdial edges is unbelievable. so genlike and subtle.
  8. Rolex 1970 6263 Daytona Big Red with a hearty patina....

    lets hear more about this dial. this is the best looking rep dial i've ever seen tbh
  9. Cheapest Daily Beater In The Rep World?

    most of the 21J watches are bulletproof and fine for work. i prefer the Tudor Black Bay as it flies under the radar compared to that watch brand with 'R' in the name everyone loves. If you like quartz, the Speedy Mark II is good for a chrono and the JLC Reverso is good for a dressy watch. but grab any $100 21j and you should be good.

    ^^^^ that dial is so nice. the tiny recessed subdials, the serifs in ''Daytona,'' the little lume balls....all very well done
  11. Wrist check 18 october 2016

    ^^^^ is this one of the new ones? Looks like a Yuki dial fitted?

    ^^^ I've never seen this watch with white lume! All the others I've seen have that bad fake yellow stuff. May I ask where you purchased the watch?

  16. 5500 Explorer dial

  17. Vintage Vacheron...

    the king has returned. long live the king.
  18. Rolex 228238 yellow gold noob rep modification?

    ah--- sorry, the forums sometimes retreat into jargon. tc is thomas caddell, maker of insanely good rolex reps. dw just means datewheel!
  19. Rolex 228238 yellow gold noob rep modification?

    the DW is totally fixable, TC DWs are the answer as noted earlier. tho i would be more concerned with saving up cash for the Ferrari you need to own in order to make this rep believable
  20. Looking for vintage lumed 5500 Explorer dial (not Yuki)

    ^^^ very good advice
  21. Nanuq, have you tried the modern Black Bay out? I feel like the black bezeled one with the red triangle has a lot of mojo. And honestly, I like the Black Bay sort of for similar reasons explored in that article... I like the Black Bay because it's a very good rep of a gen watch that I could actually buy. Most vintage Rollie stuff is just too expensive as gen for a lot of us younger guys to try and pull off. It's why I don't have a PN Daytona. I love the PN, think it might be the nicest-looking watch I've ever seen besides maybe vintage Pateks. But there's no way in the world, not even close, that i could get away with wearing a 50-100k watch.
  22. Got to love Japan

    nice 5513! what are the specs?
  23. Jetmid rides again!

    lol Jetmid. old school...
  24. 5513 Gilt Build - Thoughts So Far?

    This is a beautiful build man, I wish I could have pulled the trigger when those MBWs were available for a hot minute! Unique watch and look.
