  1. No it's not a custom order, its a standard off the shelf piece from him. http://www.tb-688.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=37_128_129&product_id=774 My order is still in transit...stuck over in China for the past 7-10 days sigh
  2. Nice quality pictures from Toro. Zoom-ed in and managed to see the 2836 marking on the movement.
  3. Yeah, i am prepared for that. As long as the cal.8500 decorated/engravings is there on the Swiss movement, i can replace those loose/Asian/worn-out parts.
  4. Just placed an order with Toro. My second with him. Hopes it's really a ETA 2824-2 movement in there. Anything in particular i show look out for in the QC pics?
  5. Postage is reasonable though lol
  6. Wearing this today PS: Need to the seconds, minute hands asap
  7. Watchsmith had no major problems swapping out the movements but he did mentioned that the case has to be slightly tweaked, didn't pushed him for details. So you guys can consider taking this besides the base ETA7750 model.
  8. Just gotten back mine after swapping out the A7750 with a Hamilton A05H21 movement + ETA Day & Date wheel. Took you advice about franken keepers and this is definitely a good move
  9. My Seamaster collection, all genuine. Bought them by "accident"....all of them within a few hours through bidding on eBay a few years back. I placed bids on them and was only planning to get one but forgotten about the bids till it was all over hahaha needless to say I had to do a lot of explaining to my wife The chronograph is the Titanium / Titane version.....one of the most comfortable bracelet ever
  10. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162140842250 If it's real then the price is dirt cheap
  11. Need some info as I am embarking on a franken adventure. My A7750 has been showing 1-2 issues (wouldnt start even after winding when left with zero power reserve). 1st time it came back alive was when I pushed the chronograph and the 2nd time it happened was last Monday whereby I had to knock it on a wooden table. I just bought a Hamilton A05H21 movement which I was told is a modified /upgraded ETA 7750 with (1) 60 hours power reserve (2) improved time accuracy. Anyone tried this swap before? Any pointers/tips on what to look out for?
  12. Hahaha docthor, it seems we have a common interest for IWC watches. I will swap out the A7750 to the ETA7750 if/when then Asian movement dies, but hoping that won't happen for a few more years at least. Cheers
  13. iwc

    Great details, thanks for sharing
  14. Been using this 3777 from Toro since Feb 2015. No problems whatsoever after sending it to a watchsmith to sort out the chronograph. Conclusion....Loving every minute wearing this
  15. Problem is that the case itself is very hard to source as this 3713 is a doppelchronograph, been looking around but no luck so far The movement is also another problem, I can't find any info on the web on where to get the rattrapante function
