  1. [SPOILER="Watch"] [/SPOILER] I think it looks.. like a spaceship
  2. And dont come up with the idea to use a gen bracelet and rep case, probably wont fit and even if it does it will look very bad because the gen 18k gold color is alot more yellow than the rep yellow gold which will look more like 10k and faded in comparison. Btw bracelet and case are never really cost-efficient simply because their made completely out of gold. Still they will cost alot more than the gold standard price because these are rare rolex parts. I would still just recommend you to buy a gen 5 digit, that can be bought for under 10k and are not a mix of parts but 100% genuine! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. You most likely wont find a case, not even the bezels are really available..b And 5k is very very optimistic for both a bracelet and a case.. I dont think you can even get a 5 digit case and bracelet for that.. In any case good luck and keep us updated
  4. Im not sure I understand? You want to build a 6 digit daydate franken with a gen case and bracelet? You would be better off buying a gen daydate then because only the case and bracelet will cost you atleast 7k (probablz even closer to 10k) and even if you had that kind of money you will never able to find a spare case and bracelet for a 6 digit daydate! Even for a 5 digit daydate its extremly hard to find a spare case, let alone a spare bracelet..
  5. The weight of the 6 digit build is around 122 grams with all links. I know this because I have sourced a daydate with the same case. Gen weight is 178 gr. so its not comparable
  6. What is it on the rep daydate 118238 case Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. To me it looks like 42mm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. anyone else? are there no franken builders of this type of watch in Europe?
  12. 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.
  13. Sometimes I forget which day it is
  14. 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
  15. 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?
