    Arrived today, ARF SD43 V2

    In the end I didn’t think the date wheel needed modding; what do you think?
  2. Ahhhh now you’ve got me reconsidering my original decision! I imagine the new 116610’s are going to take a few months to settle down anyway... I guess I’ll pip for the SD43 !
  3. @Legend what’s your opinion on the XF dial, I’ve read it more ‘wet look’ and better than the JF.
  4. The ARF is widely regarded as an incredible ootb rep. I’ve seen a few people remove the cyclops on it too and it looks amazing. I’ve been very close to buying it, but I prefer my 40mm rollie’s and the Noob V9 sub and New ARF sub are about to hit the market with 3135’s, I’m waiting impatiently!
  5. This is a pretty common issue, would be great to hear from some of our experienced modders.

    SH3130 in Noob 114060, movement retaining

    Thanks man, I’ve just added gen hands to this now and will wait for the ARF 114060 to be released and will swap everything in to the ARF.

    TC V7 Extreme value these days ?

    @alfa1 I do agree that the Kens High Dial is the difference maker, however the purchase price of the TC is +$700 when the JF is +$400, you can fit a gen dial on the 3135 for not much more than the difference. As for the availability of the 3135 parts, I have had no issues sourcing the 3 parts I’ve needed when modding. I’m not sure what the TC clasp is like, but I think the JF clasp is poor and the only major flaw to the watch.

    My opinion, nowadays, is that I wouldn’t buy a 5 digit sub without a SH3135 movement in it, something which TC’s do not have. You can pick up a JF for $400, throw in a gen insert and date wheel for an extra $250 and you have an excellent sub for $650. In my opinion, better than a TC. Just my humble opinion though, others will disagree I’m sure.

    SH3130 in Noob 114060, movement retaining

    I decided to use the JF case to put it together. Here is the outcome: JF 114060 case and bracelet. Noob V7 clasp. Gen Dial Spongebob Insert JF Hands It’s a beautiful outcome, although I need to progress my franken 16610 and may end up selling this to fund.
  11. Hey guys, I have a franken project for a Noob 114060, installed gen dial, spongebob insert and a JF SH3130 movement. The Noob 114060 originally came with a 2824, I’m now having a small problem securing the SH3130 into the case, the movement tabs required are an awkward size. Does anyone know of a movement retaining ring that would serve the purpose to secure the movement in place? All other ideas welcome! Cheers, PB Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rolex 16610ln R-Serial build

    I find it strange the SH3135 doesn’t take a gen seconds hand. Did you get it from JF? I have replaced the fourth wheel (seconds) on a SH3135, the part number is 3135-360. For the quickset date function, it didn’t work for me at first, but you can try applying a tiny rub of gasket grease on the underside of the date wheel and even remove the jewel sat at the top, the jewel has not great purpose. My quickset date function works fine now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
