    Rolex date 15000 and 1500 dial size

    Wow! Thanks for the info! I probably have to cut the dial feet anyway to make it fit a ETA
  2. I recently bought got a gen rolex date 15000 case set, it came with everything except a dial, dut im wondering if a dial from a 1500 date will fit, so i can expand my search. Also, is the hand length the same as a datejust? thanks!
  3. I have a 16610 with gen bezel and crown, Yuki bracelet and a Clark crystal. Is is it worth it to upgrade to a gen crystal?? thanks

    Converting a 16030 to a 16220

    To be honest, I don't know... i had a rep day-date laying around, took the day disc off, and it fits perfectly!

    Converting a 16030 to a 16220

    I was wondering if it is possible to convert my franken 16030 to a 16220? I googled the differences between them, and the main differences (besides the movement) is the crystal. Can I just swap the plexi for a sapphire, or are the case and bezel too different? If it's possible to switch the crystal, what is the part number and where can I find the best sapphire crystal? Thank you!

    Budget 5500 Air-King

    Hi, I'm planning on building a Air-King for the misses, but on a budget. I have a gen case, gen dial, clone movement, aftermarket hands, all i need is a crown and a bracelet... Where can i find a cheap gen 24-530-0 crown, or nice signed rep? And who has the best signed 78350 bracelet, Yuki, Raffles, Riyi or ..... ? Any help is appreciated, all the best Mark

    Correct spring bars for 5500 Air King

    Thank you so much! Exactly what I needed! Bought the bars from WSE. I needed a clasp spring bar (32-20681) for my 16030 built an went to a Rolex AD, no luck... They weren't allowed to sell parts, wanted to see the watch and where not helpfull at all.
  12. Hi, I'm right in the middle of building a franken 5500 Air King. I have most parts sourced, everything gen except the movement. Although I yet have to decide on which bracelet, rivet, folded or 78350... But there is one thing I can't figure out, or find any info about: what are the correct spring bars? Does anybody have the reference number, a picture or a description? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
