  1. What is it on the rep daydate 118238 case Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. To me it looks like 42mm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I mean the lug to lug size not the lug size. Is it 44mm? The case length measured from one lug to another So its true the stock dj bracelet is crap? Good for you that you had a spare one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. It looks truly beautiful and gen. What I am curious about: how is the lug to lug size pn your case? And how would you rate the quality of the bracelet? The bracelets often seem to be the weakest link especially on the 6 digit rep dj and dd models Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Please post a picture! Actually I am about to post an update. I have found all the parts myself and will let someone assemble them in Europe. Will keep you updated Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. anyone else? are there no franken builders of this type of watch in Europe?
  7. Hey guys, I just got this beautiful gen dial and want to build a franken with it. Someone is currently offering me a bp daydate 118239 case with a pres bracelet but where do I go from there? The biggest issue for me, seems to be the day and datewheels because the standard ones wont fit and im not sure where to get fitting ones for an eta 2834 or asian clone movement. Would be happy to hear some suggestions. This only concerns getting all the parts needed for a complete franken build. I am thinking about letting SSTEEL build me a franken or someone similar in germany. I also thought maybe just getting an 118239 replica and changing the dial and crystal are maybe a good way? My last resort is sending it to mymanmatt but that is a bit troublesome since im located in Germany and the customs are tight here.
  8. Sometimes I forget which day it is
  9. Thats why im going to matt, the man really knows his stuff! Btw I have decided for the 118239 because of the solid endlinks, on the 18239 reference they sit too loose for my taste Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I was thinking a good quality rep case, dont they accept gen parts? 118239 and 18239 are both 36mm but the 118239 has a bracelet with solid endlinks, polished lugs and a slightly more cushioned case A rep 118239 would accept a gen 18239 18k whitegold fluted bezel?

  11. Hello, Im going to let someone (probably matt) build a franken 118239 for me. I have found an original but used whitegold fluted bezel from an 18239. Are the bezels different from each other (ref 118239 vs 18239) or should it fit without a problem? Also what is a realistic market price for an 18k fluted bezel Thanks in advance
  12. An oysterquartz with an an eta 2824/36 just would be so sick! Why put in a quartz movement? Or atleast put in a quartz with a sweeping second hand Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
