  3. TC is on an indefinite break. If your looking for a sub, try researching the new JF16610 LN or LV. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Well you see that groove under the bezel, I believe that's a groove for a gasket, the size is 32mm x approx 0.7mm. I've ordered the gasket and with some silicone it should provide a tighter fit and improved waterproofing. The case back and screw down crown will be fine and this bezel gasket should make a difference. I'll eventually get mine pressure tested, but I don't have a wet pressure tank yet, it's on my shopping list. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes I can confirm the crystal did pop off when I took the bezel off. The way I prevented this was to take a cloth and apply two finger pressure on the cyclops, then slide the case knife partially under the bezel and carefully remove it; the cyclops stayed in place. Here's some photos of when the crystal pops off; Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Compared to the 1989 L series in the original photos in this thread, the rehaut does seem a tiny bit 'shallow', however when compared to modern gens in the other threads on this the rehaut seems perfectly fine. Quite a few gen owners have agreed on this point in the various threads. By the way the TC is not readily available, TC is on hiatus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yes it does, thanks mate. Sorry for the confusion, it was the "SWISS-T 25" dial text that had me on the wrong path. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So, new development, I managed to persuade the owner to let me remove the bracelet to check the model and serial numbers. It's a 16610 L series from 1989, it is not a 16800. My apologies for the mistake and thank you to the super sleuths who provided the queries. I will see if I can change the thread title. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk One interesting fact about the watch, is that it no longer has any lume whatsoever. The original substance for the lume had a half-life of 15 years and as such is now depleted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. @hologramet thank you sir! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hey holo, is this a double AR crystal? I like it without the cyclops, where did you get it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Another amazing build@rolojack Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The movement flips the date by rotating the crown clockwise. Does this mean it has the 3135 movement? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I'll be able to check the movement on Monday by the crown height, but I won't be opening his case [emoji5]. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
