  1. Watch parts

    I already posted on the other thread, but it kind of fits better here. Copy & paste An old and tested piece of advice is to find a genuine watch online that you particularly like and copy it. Decisions: Pre 1967 with gilt dial or later white dial print Pointed crown guards or rounded only applies on an early version domed or flatter service crystal replacement crown? leather, NATO or bracelet. If you are keeping the bracelet, take it off the watch and drop it in baby oil for 24 hours How much, if at all do you want to age the bezel Once you know what you are shooting at, we can help with suppliers and links to tutorials, guides, inspiration

    Noob Hulk insert has never been great, anyone know anything about the one from Loco yet?

  4. Glad it worked out for you @Jack1993. Start a build thread once you are under way. Oh and welcome to the money pit😂😂😂
  5. The RWG official watch has lanched!

    No rest for an RWG crew member. I’m spending my Sunday evening trying to keep tabs on where the Travelling Watch is. Can anyone help me out? Anyone recognise this arm?
  6. Strange hybrid Rolex

    I have a fascination for Rolex reps that mix up features of two or more models, sometimes they are nothing like any Rolex ever built. I have a couple of real beauties. Currently I’m hunting for a 116610 chronograph. This evening I was cruising Google images and found a new one to me. A DayDate with merc hands and a Sub dial fitted. To my great surprise I discovered it is genuine and totally original. Just in case anyone thought I was delusional, I know 116610 Chronograph reps exist. I believe it has a Quartz movement and I want one. I know it’s a bit rubbish, that’s the appeal😍
  7. New pick up- gen omega speedy pro

    Congratulations, may it bring you many years of pleasure
  8. Hello from Italy

    Very nice indeed and a fascinating project. I just sent you an email requesting pricing information, then immediately afterwards found the price on your website. My Italian is nowhere near as good as it should be🙄 https://www.rdbwatches.net/

  10. Asian 2813: the noob movement

    Ive heard of them alright. They are generally considered good for their price point. I think I have a Reef Tiger Diver’s Watch somewhere
  11. Hello from Philadelphia

    We had a spammer on this thread, I’ve just tidied up and remind all members not to purchase from unknown sources, especially to our new member @Uncmn_denom
  12. Seadweller 126600 2017 model

    Hey @k4jun I’ve just seen that you are in Poland. Witamy na forum 😀
  13. 1016 Explorer w/lug holes

    So we are back up and running with the JMB V2? I would love to see the V1 back
  14. Seadweller 126600 2017 model

    Exactly what I thought, but I don’t claim to know anything about the inner working of the rep industry, except that the “factory” names are largely an invention of us guys
  15. Seadweller 126600 2017 model

    Didn’t Angus more or less say that, about changing names to take the heat off a bit with the Chinese authorities?
  16. REP case, dial & hands $1500. Missing 1x SH3135 movement

    Oh I think we might call it a fake case when dealing with eBay. It’s largely semantics, but that word does get their attention 😂😂😂
  17. The RWG official watch has lanched!

    We couldn’t resist the temptation to give it an official launch at the Dutch GTG. We have far too few GTGs. Anyway now it has started it’s official travels, it is as we speak making it’s way to Stu who s the first Official Recipient as per your request. It will then be setting out from Scotland to Deutschland. The plan is it then bounces around Mainland Europe and the UK.
  18. REP case, dial & hands $1500. Missing 1x SH3135 movement

    I feel someone should ask how an aftermarket case comes to have a Rolex serial number.
  19. SH3135/Yuki is pretty much a clone and most genuine Rolex movement parts fit, SA3135 that Noob uses is only dimensionally the same, but takes genuine hands and dial. A3135 is a Chinese ETA clone decorated to look superficially like a Rolex movement. All very confusing and many threads have been posted on the subject.
  20. Personally I would never even consider paying for a Swiss ETA from a dealer. As has been discussed many times before, they are usually old movements, worn and dirty, repaired with a mix of second hand and Chinese parts. Save the money and consider buying a Swiss movement from a reputable supplier at a future point. The “Clone 3235” isn’t a clone at all. There is no clone of this movement at the moment. Most likely it is a Chinese 2836. I despise deco plates on movements and they seem even more silly on a watch with a closed back. That is my personal view and others my disagree😀 Edit, I just checked the dealer link above and the deco plate and Swiss movement options are the same price, but a bit of digging and a none deco plate 2836 option is available and should be $30 or so cheaper. That would be my choice until the ARF has better hands
  21. Explorer 114270 (36mm) options?

    Domed sapphire would be consistent with the build concept, if something suitable could be found. Real gilt dial, better yet gold plated before printing like the TM dials. Actually I like this idea a lot.
  22. Explorer 114270 (36mm) options?

    True but the OP was talking about making a fantasy model in the style of a Tempus Machina. As TM always use current models, it would be in keeping to use this model and maybe consider some case shaping to maybe slim the sides. I don’t see what could be done with the lug ends without ruining the SEL fit. It sounds like a fun project to me.
  23. The RWG official watch has lanched!

    I’ve been shot at, blown up, electrocuted, married and had kids. I don’t have a panic left in me. It was however mildly distasteful, not helped by the fact that I was just finishing a panna cotta when I read it
  24. The RWG official watch has lanched!
