  1. Gents, I did a quick scout online to find the gen 6263 case dimensions; my results turned up: Case diameter: 37mm Case thickness: 13.4mm Can anyone validate these dimensions? Additionally, does the 37mm diameter include the crown and/or pushers. It'd be good to know the case diameter without crown and pushers, since most builds start with a case shell that may need refinishing to size. Input appreciated from those with the knowledge [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hey guys, such an enjoyable thread to read. I've been drooling all the way through! I love this dial version: Also, I'd be really keen to hear if these 'shortcut' versions of the PN Daytona are a worthwhile base model from which to make mods to... http://www.pf-818.com/watches/rolex/daytona/vintages.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hey guys, the story goes; I got woke up in the middle of the night by a bond girl...... .....and then I couldn't get back to sleep, so I started reading about the A7750 movement and came across this fantastic webpage.

  7. I'd say: 1. The thickness 2. The misaligned bezel 3. The heft of the bracelet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. This piece arrived 2 days ago, noting that I am a newbie with a keen eye, here's my assessment: The cons: When I received the QC pics it appeared at the dial and bezel were slightly misaligned, I queried/challenged this with the TD in 3 separate emails and was assured, each time, that it was in alignment. After receiving the watch it's clear that the bezel is not accurately aligned, I also think the fonts on the bezel are also not great. My lesson learned here is to ask the TD to source a different unit for consideration. The Chronometer stop function is temperamental, sometimes requiring 3 attempts to work. The bracelet appears terrific in accuracy, however slightly lightweight, this is me being picky really. The pros: The case appears to be accurate. The dial seems accurate. The sapphire and ar coating is great, damn this thing is shiny! The lume is great. The A7750 movement is almost silent, listening to the caseback I hear that perfect quick ticking sound, music to my ears. The time keeping is great, I haven't put it on a timegrapher but the QC stats were all excellent. I'd like to hear the input from the community about how to improve the visual accuracy of this watch. Please be gentle, I'm a newbie! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi Goranot, I'm actually wearing my Daytona today and I still really like it. It's a stunning watch. I think the A7750 movement is very good, no issues, it's damn near silent, keeps great time, power reserve of about 36 hours. For the QC pics, I'd recommend looking at the dial, bezel alignment, that was my biggest issue if you read the original post. Check to see if the solid end links fit tightly. The 5mm difference in thickness is the one thing you can't change, either you own this beautiful watch and live with the difference, or seek out a franken build Daytona with the correct thickness, this will most likely cost over $1000 though. Overall I'm extremely happy with mine, she's a beaut! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Caci, is that a yuki dial? Did you build it, or is it out of the box? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Hey guys, I came across these on etsy and thought I'd share. Might be a cool addition to your man cave or home office [emoji18] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I'll check out Anderson .Paak and let you know [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Amazing! I'd love to see that thread! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. You know it! Silky tunes.
  18. The JF version with working chrono appears inferior to the BP version due to the fitting of the SEL's. This was mentioned earlier on in this thread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I think the pf818 version is noob, I think, some of the guys on here will be able to advise better. The movement for the working chrono is great, the timegrapher stats are spot on, it's silent when you put it to your ear, it's a beautiful watch and yes I would buy it again, I'd just be much more firm with the TD about the bezel alignment, in hindsight i should have asked him to exchange it. I think an aftermarket bezel can be purchased for about $140 and I may go down that route. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. The link from pf-818 is where I purchased mine, see the original pics in this thread. I can confirm the AR coating is terrific, the watch is crystal clear and the bezel shines and catches the light beautifully. The two issues with this watch are: 1. The thickness is 15mm whereas the gen is 11.5mm. 2. The markings on the bezel (on mine) are not aligned perfectly at 12,3,6&9. They are maybe 0.5mm misaligned. If you buy this watch, make sure you are very clear to Joshua (PF TD) that you wants unit with aligning bezel. Hope that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I'm happy with the 15mm depth of the watch if it means I've got a working chrono, I don't think many would notice the 3.5mm depth difference whilst it's on the wrist. Are you able to source a new bezel? I'd prefer to pick one up from someone who can vouch for the alignment.
  22. Phil, thanks again for the help. So let me try to capture the guidance: Acquire the non-chrono JF version. Acquire the BP bracelet which has better and tighter fitting SELs. Use the clasp from the JF. Pickup an aftermarket bezel, any idea of the approx cost of this? I checked on ebay and saw one for 140USD, however I the info was poor. Now for the big question, would I need to replace the movement so that the watch could have a working chrono? Not sure if the last part of my reply got posted: Would I be able to get a replacement movement so the watch had a working chrono? Would this fit into the 11.5mm case depth? Any ideas what movement?

  23. Hey Phil, what is the Daytona non-chrono? I've searched and can't seem to find.
  24. Thanks for the info, I'll do a bit of research into the JF. If BP is the likely maker of my watch, then why doesn't it have a BP bracelet with SEL? [emoji851] Any ideas where best to find an aftermarket bezel with thicker text? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Hi Phil, can you please explain JF, BP and SEL are acronyms for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
