  4. HELP! Omega Seamaster 2254.50

    @Kernow full details... that is a tasty looking fantasy [emoji7] what a recipe that must be. Best combination of PO and SM300 I've seen. Meanwhile I just picked up a cool 2541 [emoji108] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    @kernow I saw that! Sweet dial... might have to start calling you "The Enabler" [emoji6] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  6. HELP! Omega Seamaster 2254.50

    Honestly undecided@deandavis but If I don't i have a bezel assembly, very decent insert, hands, crown, HEV, bracelet amongst that bag - more than I expected. Couple have been refurbished by Omega (bezel, bracelet) or there was nothing wrong with them and Omega just replace as a standard practice. Some other bits that I can't identify springs and stuff... guessing from the bezel assembly and a very lightly marked crystal. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. HELP! Omega Seamaster 2254.50

    @deandavis@Kernow I have been looking for a gen dial to build something. I've got my Gen 2254.50 back from being completely refurbished and have a bag load of parts to sort through. They refurbished the old bracelet too... Cousins don't seem to be able to supply the dial MPN 064PP3033033 but there are a couple on eBay at £349 Just need to keep an eye out for base watch and maybe a used dial (unicorn!?) Just because this discussion needs motivation... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

  9. HELP! Omega Seamaster 2254.50

    Hey folks... I was lucky to pick up a gen recently and it's currently in with Omega for full treatment including new bracelet, bezel, crystal, and the usual service items. I will have a bag of perfectly serviceable gen parts coming back... with the hopefully pristine(ish) watch. If anybody is thinking of a Franken build or just after a gen bracelet that needs a little refurbishment then let me know. I'm almost tempted to try getting hold of a sillix for a beater. I hope they really do have stock. Good luck [mention=27263]deandavis[/mention] Pic of mine before it left...

    Great build that AJ, and fantastic detail with that Swiss motor... a keeper for sure[emoji106] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  11. I've recently been drawn towards the PAM side[emoji3] I picked up a nice 203 and have enjoyed wearing it over the last week or two... it isn't a super rep or anything but I just like it. Anyhow... After cleaning, refinishing and polishing the case I noticed that there were some marks on the I side of the crystal that looked like could be cleaned away. I'm used to uncasing watches and doing some modifications etc. So I thought I would be reasonably low risk in removing the movement and cleaning the crystal. All went well until I went to put the crown/stem back into the movement and then I guess I've been unfortunate and screwed the works or something. After many attempts I did get the stem engaged but seemed to be stuck in time setting position. Also seemed that the tiny screw that is used to secure the stem (lock it in place) was just turning endlessly without tightening. To be clear it didn't tighten and then strip or anything it just never engaged to tighten. So... I either need a fix or new movement. And to be honest I'm not sure if it's worth it if I need somebody to do the work - which I would prefer so as to avoid me screwing another one up. What would you do... repair, replace movement or sell for parts and move on to another? Shame to be at this junction as I really liked the watch :-( I'm in UK by the way... if anybody can recommend the go to PAM guys for work. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  12. Dilemma... PAM 203 fix up or break up?

    Brilliant help @dinkas@themannier@nycrounders I think I've certainly my unscrewed the set lever screw too much and disengaged. I feel confident to attempt the keyless reset. I've done some work on movements - but only Seiko. I did some reading on 6497 and the steps above seem ok. Final question assume hand removal is same as any other?? But any pitfalls to avoid? Thanks so much gents... this watch is worth it... and the crystal is clean now too[emoji41] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

  14. Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes...

    I always wanted to build a Kit Car as a teenager...[emoji106] Instead I restored a Fiat 126... and painted it black with JPS gold stripes[emoji23] Just to add to my random story... something on topic... In the defence of Quartz watches. They might have been the high volume low price curse of the 'real' watch industry. But somewhere along the way they also spawned largely affordable Brands e.g. G-Shock, Swatch that still today are a gateway into watch collecting and maybe for some the realisation that mechanical watches are something they would like to try as well. That must be a good thing right? And I admit I have owned some premium Quartz watches... still do... and they are both practical and beautiful. vive la différence
  15. looking for a sterile dial submariner

    @totalwise gotcha... you could do worse than check out Ray Wong (can't remember his handle but is on eBay) he does a sterile Milsub with drilled lugs, Miyota or really Tiger Concept are the best options outside of sterile Parnis (ooh that sounds painful). Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  16. Watch sales and VIP

    These changes make good sense and reduce the risks significantly BUT... remember that even with VIP and the need for two prior sales things can and unfortunately will still go badly on occasion. No legislation for thieving b@stards! Both buyer and seller beware... scams can be initiated either side. Take care to deal with people with reputation and/or tread carefully [emoji106] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    http://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=4122570 You could get yourself over to the best thread, and home to a great bunch of Sub lovers - aka "The Brotherhood". Somewhere in the 20 part thread series you'll find as much info about Sterile and Sub homages as any other place. We even have our own BSHT logo and many builders on there. An example... started as a Tiger Concept (good shout Sogeha) 5513... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

  22. Quality of that piece is mad! Congratulations Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  23. Hey all... I was one lucky sunava to pick up this great piece in the last raffle... Until recently I've been strictly 40mm and less... Sub kind of guy. Now i suddenly have three PAMs. The quality of this rep is pretty darned good. I suspect the lume is slightly off compared to gen but let's face it you are unlikely to bump into a gen I'm your travels... So i put it right up there in the category of "Fantasy Purchase Rep" Engraving is really cool[emoji41] Thanks @MOAB for enabling the raffle [emoji106]
