  1. Kif shock protection does nothing until you drop it😄 YMMV but I see little point in such attention to visual details of a movement as signed rotor and engine turning of the same pattern on a rep of a watch with a closed back
  2. None of these cases are 1:1, there are tells, tells that won’t in any way stop you enjoying your watch, but which are there nevertheless. It will look absolutely the part on the wrist, but a really knowledgable expert will be able to tell it from genuine, and in my opinion that is how it should be, this hobby is about the pleasure of building more affordable versions of classic vintage watches for one’s own pleasure, which seems to be your desire, if cases were ever completely indistinguishable, it would just encourage scammers and fraudsters Owning both Phong and other, cheaper Vietnamese cases, I’m not convinced Phong is worth over twice as much YMMV Try Arsla5 on eBay for ETA movements, he is very genuine
  3. Welcome home, it’s always good to see OGs return. Please show us anything you buy and let us know what you think of them
  4. You have to build your own, it's quite fun Although that dial is not available for sale, there are plenty of online sellers of dials for seiko movements
  5. Noob version is literally the first hit on a google search. I've given up spoon feeding unknown guys on their first post since not one of the ones I've given information to has ever stuck around to contribute a single thing to the forum and I got a couple of snotty DMs from guys with buyers regret Anyone who wants to learn and willing to read, I'll help as much as I can. Anyone not prepared to put the slightest effort in themselves, less so
  6. I thought you were going to say H4 pinion kit and I was kicking myself for failing memory. I can’t see why it can’t be swapped from the existing movement, but going to need one, and a date wheel swap to get the DWO for Rolex date window position Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. No, should be plug and play. The original TC movement is a 2824 clone
  8. It will fit the case, but not the dial or hands. Why not just get an ETA2824 or clone? I can’t remember which version of the case needs a notch cutting for one of the movement retaining screws
  9. We stick to trusted dealers, so I doubt anyone can help you. I have certainly never dealt with them
  10. Oh you are.most welcome😊 Really I was just following up on @martycus post. However talk of 1:1 always amuses us. There is no such thing. So probably the best idea is to do what the rest of us do when researching a watch. Head over to your preferred dealer or dealers and see what is available, then research those options to see what are the strong points and weaknesses of each maker's offering and decide what YOU can live with and what YOU can't, which may very well be different from someone else's preference
  11. If by people you mean senior Admin, crew and long standing members, and if by accusations you mean concerns, then you are probably correct There is far less wrong with buying a $7 rep on DHGate than in trying to fool others or yourself that a rep is genuine
  12. Ah, the famous P factory https://www.panerai.com/en/network/authorized-dealers.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwwLKFBhDPARIsAPzPi-LjvpKf3jwfXv_pVi0CpGLA8V-EG4djl59h2i0V3RBTfCW9lmyk28caAlzPEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds If you are looking for 1:1 this is the place If you are looking to read and learn about the best Panerai reps and how no rep is ever 1:1 and the Chinese Ministry for Accreditation of Counterfeit Goods does not award AAAAA+ ratings, then all the information you could ever want is in RWG
  13. Looking to fool people isn't what this hobby is about and if you think any watchmaker who has worked on genuine Rolex movements is going to be fooled by any clone movement, you are deceiving yourself
  14. Some have speculated that they all start out as the same basic casting and the level of hand finishing is different. It is certainly better to judge each case individually as they do vary MQ is a PITA to deal with
