  1. RWI moderators in da house

    The rep forum pays off again! Picked up a couple bottles of Grangestone 21 on sale this week. Great 21 year for the price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. GMT II Root beer Info 1675 model 11.72 folded links

    This is what got me to the question in my first post. If the fair was Art Basel in Miami on the Yacht marina and the purchase price was north of 4K its possible. I had a buddy who’s dad passed away unexpectedly two years back. He was a used car dealer and had a lock box with all sorts of random stuff he had taken in on trade for cars over the years. If my buddy had not stepped in and done some investigation, his “stepmom” 10 years younger than he is would have sold all three watches for $500 because they were not Rolex’s. A GEN 80s Patek, 90s IWC and 03 PAM086 later he and his two brothers chopped up a nice collection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hacking, yes, but that movement was never cloned to that extent. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Definitely looks gen from movement alone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I won’t argue with Yllekp. Perhaps I am missing something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not sure what is going on here, but good catch. Undeniably two different watches. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Good Morning RWG, with the sister fora down and out I thought I would ask for some feedback here. I have been accumulating parts for a Franken 1675-3 build (see attached). I picked up the reworked ETA case from JohnnyDepp about a month back as I am not fixated on the case depth and want to build this beast off an ETA 2893-2 Chronometer Grade movement (I know it’s not the correct BPS or hand stack, but it’s a much better quality movement that most alternatives) My question is, can I fit a vintage gen 1675-3 hand set to my eta 2893-2 movement? If not, is there a high quality alternative that will work? Feedback appreciated. Parts so far: Gen Tropical Nipple Dial Gen Crown Gen Gold Bezel Gen B/G Insert Clark’s Plexi Reworked ETA Case with Gen Spec Drilled Lugs Chronometer Grade ETA 2893-2 Up for discussion: Gen Vintage Hand Set (available if functional) ETA Replacement Hands Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Removing rehaut on submariner?

    DVNE walked you through it perfectly. I sanded out the rehault on my BP Bluesy value Franken and love it. I originally tried to sand the rehault without removing the crystal. I was able to get the rehault sanded out, but ended up scratching up the inside of the crystal. I had already picked up a TC crystal as a replacement because I did not like the LEC so it was not a critical mistake. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
