    TIGER CONCEPT 5513 V2

    I will ask but the seller doesn't even know how to open a watch so ... BTW ... the rehaut on my A/6538 seems sometimes woky, a proof that crystals can create distortion because I KNOW that my rehaut is 90 degrees (custom made on a professional lathe).

    TIGER CONCEPT 5513 V2

    Hum ... sorry but no [emoji6] After reading what automatico an Sogeha said about that model and knowing that it's sold about 1/2 the price ... I can't give a link because I'll buy it. Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk Thanks !!! really informative and helpfully. It seems that at $90 it's a steak ... about 1/2 the price. That baby's coming to me [emoji16] Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk Thanks !!! Good news, as I already have a spare WSO 5413 bezel assembly [emoji16] Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk

    TIGER CONCEPT 5513 V2

    Hi guys, I've been thinking about building a 5513 those days as I have a gilt 5513 Serpico Y Laino decal dial that's waiting in my drawer. I prefer too put time than money in that build so I'm searching for a cheap start case. I would like to know what you think about Tiger Concept 5513 V2 as I can get one for $90 shipped with a Miyota 8215 inside. My questions are : 1 - is the bezel on those watches easily removable (even if not Gen soecs) or not ? 2 - which size is the dial opening on those cases Here are some pics of the watch I'm offered. The lugs are a little pointy but I can rework them and the CGs too and I can redrill the lugs so that they take 2mm bars. The worst part is the plexi IMO but I have some waiting in my drawers too. So please tell me what you think about that watch. Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk

    Winter 7922 / Reflections

    Thanks ... will do that. Do you work from the upside or downside of the hands ? About my A/6538 ... YES it needs better hands [emoji39] and thanks for the infos about JK and Raffles (which handset did you order from JK ?). I first wanted to be certain I could achieve that crazy build (so much work and custom parts ... almost everything) before trying to source a perfect handset. Now I will upgrade it with an ETA movement (still a 2813 inside) and better hands ... while also enjoying it on my wrist just as it is. Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk

    Winter 7922 / Reflections

    Wonderfull job @jimcon11 ... I will try your method this week-end on my 6429 Commando hands I recently found an almost proper handset after searching for one year, right overall dimensions but with a lume plot too thin and too much metal on the sides So you definitely save me and my handset will be perfect ... supposing I can do the same modd you did without ruining those hands.

    Building a 5513 personally of original parts

    Hi guy Sorry if I'm a little harsh but ... do you ever read advices ? You keep on buying overpriced (IMHO) parts since last October (so 4 months ago) and it seems you want to keep on that way !!! Sorry to read that ... Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk

    What is a Frankenstein watch?

    Only chronographs can be Frankensteins IMHO ... other watches lack those BIG pushers

    A/6538 Military Submariner with Burford dial

    Still on my wrist today as I can't get if off I didn't got any time to take good pics (I'll try next weekend) so I post those. At the least one can see the custom bezel (fully rotating) with "german silver" upper part, the fixed bars and (barely visible but there it is) tiny gap between the rehaut and the dial.

    Best quality ladies watch replica under $500?

    It depends on the size of the lady ... My GF is 5ft92 so even if she's really fit and has thin wrists she wears a 36 or 38mm better than a ladies watch Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk
