  6. Is TC still around?

    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

  8. The Strap Debate

    Allow me to introduce my first wife, a Breitling Navitimer World on an Ocean Racer strap. She will never be sold nor replaced, I imagine one day my biggest dilemma will be which one of my sons I'll leave this watch to... I have the stainless bracelet which comes out for black tie events, but I've decided to find a custom leather strap to pair with her. Some of the strap/watch combinations posted on RWG are fantastic, so I'm putting it out there to see if you guys can recommend a leather strap fit for this watch. I'd also like to pair the deployant clasp from the Ocean Racer with the new leather strap. Thanks for taking the time [emoji108] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I've started this post to help our esteemed colleague@Sogeha , the hypothesis is whether the JF 16610LV can be used as a base for a 16800 franken. On to the comparative photos... This 16800 is very aged, the bezel notches are smoother than the 16610 due to wear over time: The rehaut is the same depth, making a sanded and polished 16610 rehaut a legit option. The 16800 bracelet is slightly more polished due to wear over time. The SELs are different with the 16800 having the wings on the underside: The 16800 has drilled lug holes on the outside. Obviously the dial and hands are different and would need to be swapped: The crown on the 16800 is a 702 (smaller) crown versus the 16610 703 trip lock crown which is larger With the legit 3135 movement in the JF 16610, it's seems that with a few parts and a bit of work, the JF could be modded into a 16800. @Sogeha keep us posted on your progress if you decide to go ahead [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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

  18. The movement flips the date by rotating the crown clockwise. Does this mean it has the 3135 movement? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. 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

  21. Just quoting my original post; It's a totally different dial, including the Swiss made text less 25 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I can check the difference today (if my buddy is wearing it) and let you know if he rehaut is deeper. The crowns are different though, the 16610 has a 703 crown and I think the 16800 has a 702 crown, with the 703 being thicker. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    When I wrote that the JF against the 16800 was remarkably good, I was referring to the JF as a base for a franken. The dial and hands would need to be completely changed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
