  1. As Kernow says there are two sides to every story and the Mods team has never been in the habit of being unfair or discussing decisions
  2. Glad to hear you are on the mend
  3. AFAIK all Noobmariners had a Miyota clone movement. It isn't at all difficult to get a movement from Cousins, Ebay or Aliexpress. Fitting it is straightforward for anyone that has some little knowledge. Some watchmakers will not work on reps. There is Adrian, but I don't know how busy he is and currently can't remember his username @kernow a little help
  4. You will not find an Ivan dial from any dealer, that much I know
  5. Build specs would be appreciated please
  6. You know how to reach me if I can be of any help brother
  7. Noob factory doesn't make this model. Try the dealers in the trusted dealer section and be aware there are a ton of scam sites on the Internet
  8. Welcome to the hobby. To avoid disappointment it is best to understand there is no such thing as a 1:1 copy and no recognised grading system. Buying from the dealers listed in our trusted dealers section will give you access to the best replicas available and reading on the forums will help you understand the strengths and weakness of each model
  9. David, thank you for taking the time to let us know. Bob was immensely proud of you, we talked at length about our respective families, and it a reflection of the kind of family you are that you think of others at this time of grief and loss. The Internet has made the world a curious place. I consider so many here to be friends and Bob was top of the list. We never met, though we did have plans prior to covid. However over many years he always had my back, always was there helping and encouraging and took a genuine interest in me that went far beyond our watch hobby. My deepest condolences to you and your family. I shall sorely miss him Rest in peace Minty
  10. I saw something on Aliexpress recently. I’m not convinced it’s s a super rep or even close, but it is all I have ever seen and might scratch the itch
  11. And your point is? European shipping of commercial goods verses shipping from China of counterfeit goods. You are comparing apples with ladders mate
  12. I have not had any issues with Toro myself. I have helped resolve a couple for members over the years. Three months of questions on the forum has consistently told you this watch is no longer available, so it isn’t that surprising to me that it is unavailable
  13. Adding or removing a dealer from the TD list is not your decision, so you don’t go about it. Acting as you have so far isn’t going to win you any friends and of course begs the question, why did Andrew lose patience with you?
  14. Then go sort your problem out on your own. Given you know so very much it is a wonder you ended up in this mess in the first place. Especially since I speak neither Mandarin nor Cantonese and have never had such an issue in many purchases As to whining all you want, feel free, I’m actively moderating your content and will not permit any more unsubstantiated allegations
  15. I have bought from Andrew many times, as have others here. Had your reading taken on board the information here, you would know that being a member of this forum before purchasing would give you the ability to have us negotiate on your behalf. For reasons unknown you chose not to do that, and instead to join an hour ago to as Andrew says “whine”. As such I find my sympathy distinctly lacking, especially as you have posted without first contacting the mod team. I wonder what Andrew’s side of the story is, but not enough to give up any of my free time, as we do for genuine members here So really your warning is by example, don’t be the person new to the hobby who does not heed the advice of those of us with many many years in it
  16. Hell frozen in January 2014 and the Seahawks won the Super Bowl thought you would have known that
  17. Very unlikely, it would be a very risky proposition for them to be in a country where they could easily be sued for counterfeit goods. There is a reason they are in China
  18. This is one of the biggest WIS myths. If you don’t saturation dive you don’t need a 300 metre depth rating, if you do saturation dive you don’t need a 300 metre depth rating on your watch because you will be using a proper dive computer and not an obsolete piece of man jewellery I have a PADI open water cert that covers me to an impressive 18 metres. 200 is cold and dark and unless you are very well qualified it will be small consolation to know your watch will still be ticking when they pull your cold lifeless body out. I did two seasons diving with a fake Casio bombmaker with a depth rating of zero. I still have it, it still works Also if you open the watch, the depth rating is down to you and your greasing the seals and pressure testing
  19. @davdhaked90 Arrived on the scene and kindly let four members know his brother has the parts they are looking for just lying around. After I issued a warning for backdoor selling and hide his posts, I thought I would reach out and see what else they had. i asked if they had a 6263 exotic dial. Very quickly he responded with pictures of exactly what I was looking for, lucky me. The pictures did all have different backgrounds, but whatever So hardly believing my luck I asked how much he wanted for this rare genuine dial $2000 LMAO be careful out there
  20. I doubt you will easily find any pocket watch new of worthwhile quality at anything like an affordable price, let alone specific dial variations
  21. I imagine that there were some made back in the day. However I think your best bet would be to find something like a Waltham, American pocket watches still have a fantastic parts supply. It may need a service, and while it is stripped, get the dial reprinted to your specifications
  22. Good to hear from you. San Martin make very nice watches, I have a few
