  1. Hi Matt tahnk you for the advice i have added a small plastic tube hollow and glued the broken pin together like that with a little expoxy it eorked out fine is strong and holds up correctly. too much hassle to send it back but your offer is much appreciated. Since I wont sell the watch this is not a problem for me. Replacing the pin to dagerous so this was a good solution and its very strong.
  2. Rolex oysterquartz rep or franken?

    If we could just cnc high quality custom made case and bracelet parts with a case that fits a regular 36mm datejust movement you would be there. But probably very expensive. I know a guy who sells cnc tools i will inform how much the costs are tomorrow. Just a block of stainless steel is probably not that much but the time and tools to cnc it are. Plus we would need an exact measurements 3d model convert it for cnc etc.. If one would measure a datejust case inside then build the oysterquartz case around it. Adding a clark saphire datejust gen dail and a chinese movement one could get very close. That is if the cnc quality gets close to the gen. I think there are aftermarket bezels for datejust 36 which one can also use not sure if they come non fluted also. would take a lot of time. Printing a cheap plastic 3d prototype on shapeways.com could be a first step. Then if the pricing is not to steep replicate the parts in stainless steel. Would be a real challange i guess. Anyone with a gen or rep 36mm datejust emty case that would be willing to measure it with a digital messurement tool? Or are there technical drawings of the datejust and or oysterquartz 17000 that could be used to build a correct 3d model that can be used for cnc ing?
  3. You mean the crown head? The broken pin is still in im not sure if i can remove it. If thats possible I think I may be able to solve it myself since i have the replacement stem. the only problem still is how do i get the stem out? Do i have to press a hole somewhere? Cannot find anything online about it
  4. Hi Matt, that would be great. I have bought stem from ebay should be the right one. The crown is indeed also problem. If you could help me on that it would be awesome. Do you still have my address?

    I wonder if one could add a 36 mm date just dail inside this case. So just purely experimental and not in correct dimensions at all ( one would need an original to measure it up exactly ) i made a drawing in rhino 3D. This case is not that difficult in terms of strange corners it basically a very basic design with some filet edges trimmed of the case. Just experimental, not correct dimensions. I think its do-able with some hours to replicate the casing.. If someone could exactly measure one up with a digital measurement tool. Then one would "only" need to CNC it. Im not sure how much that would cost. Of course the inside should be exact, or perhaps modified to fit an day date 36 mm GEN dail. Then only the bracelet would be a problem, but could be replicated in the same way with the difficulty it needs the hands and bracelet parts also. Which adds more time. Probably this could be done in a day and printed in cheap plastic with 0.1mm error tolerance on shape ways for a few bucks. A plastic prototype so to speak. Moving it to CNC parts could be an issue also you want the stainless steel to have the correct brush which would take try and error. Since its mostly basic shaped with some edge filets holes it *should* be do-able. Again one could add a 36mm day date crown GEN or rep. Any thoughts on this Ok an attempt and thoughts ( on the bracelet ) Using day date 36 mm dail gen dail Crown using 36 mm day date gen or rep Sapphire using Clark's 36 mm ( I think it almost identical?) Using a 2283-2 or similar movement that fits for day date 36mm also Bracelet is fairly simple in terms of filleting, its basic shaped smaller each part Again just a quick draft to see how much work this is, made the bracelet in about 30 minutes ( and my rhino 3d skills are a bit rusty )

    No replicas. Although i guess the bracelet is not that hard to make compared to repped models like daydate and datejust bracelets. If i could afford would buy it instantly. latety im very interested in cnc machinery. It could be do able but very expensive. Measuring an original and recreate it with 3d software then cnc the parts out of stainless steel.
  9. Rolex oysterquartz Can this be build franken or rep? I think inwould love to own one seems the bracelets are fairly expensive and no replica available. So one would pay high proce for a whorn put bracelet. Seems there are no replicas either available. anyone has bulld one? Think this will be almost non acomplisable. It seems my taste is not easily realized. Would love to own one. Back to the 80s. Still love my mymanmatt datejust 36 best my rolex daydate 40mm is very close except the new bracelet which is ahame and the datewheel else for the money very great. I already saw this eatch before buying above 2 but is seemed alsmost un do able ref 17000
  10. I also read elsewhere you have to pull the stem out to its most outward position for a piece of o shaped meta to appear which themn have to pressed to pull out the stem out of the watch. Anyone had expierience with this for this type of movement ?
  11. So i still have fix this Plan to fix this tomorrow i have the pins on stock. I plan to use a woodrn stick with tiny drop of supergleu to connect to the remssinig pin dince it broke only problem is to get the oun loose. There is a very tiny hole in the watch wich from reading i understand inhave to press very lightly. I think i have not such small screedriver so perhaps a very tiny metal pin will work. See attached image of the watch is it whay should be the correct hole? Is it the one next to the stem at the bottom litle to the right?
  12. There seem to be no replicationa of this bew bracelet. Probably its not worth it for them and they sell the old bracelet on it instead. Im not sure how the bracelet connector to the case part is called. Assuming one could get 2 gen and they woukd fit it probably has different color and will be expensive. Then there is the existing material; cutting and sanding the part will destroy its yellow gold cover. So i guess this dream wil go over. Already own a very nice datejust 36 so wanted something bigger. The 36s are relatively payable also in parts. if someone had a suggestion if somehow my idea can be made reality or if someone knows where to buy rolex 228238 rep yellow gold bracelet which is 1-1 then please let me know
  13. Would it be possible to get a datewheel for the daydate 41mm or would that not fit? thomas cadell how can I contact him with my bracelet mod question? Really dont like a leather strap. kind regards
  14. I have a 159 alfa ti can back it up a little haha what is tc dw?
  15. https://m.rolex.com/watches/day-date/m228238-0006.html except the datewheel and the bracelet hands where they hook into the case its a very good rep imo. Its stupid they did not remade the new bracelet hands. Like in my picture you see basically the first row of parts is wide enough. Nobody tried this yet I assume. I have small wrists so nummerous parts removed adding them back in perhaps gives enough room to try this. would a daydate 2 41mm datewheel fit inside this watch? Another option is a template with the correct font I could reprint the datewheel on plastic Just interesting to discuss the new vs old bracelet and if it would be possible to modify
