  1. If you click the Auction Links within any of the Ebay search results - all of the Seller's accounts have been disabled and the original listings removed. Ebay is notoriously bad at removing auctions (even for Replica merchandise), so there's definitely something going on. I might send a photo to Sead and see what he says..
  2. I'm just curious what the community thinks of these... I don't see any recent versions of Oris Aquis models on the major Replica Sites (PureTime, InTime, etc.). I'm rather curious myself who is making these and where I can get one in the $400 range. Screw paying $700! lol Here is a historical search of all NEW Aquis models sold on Ebay < $750 within the last 90 days: Ebay Link They are selling a bunch of them! Here's one of the YouTube Video series that originally exposed these on Ebay.
  3. Welcome to the forum Denny! I'm no expert either, but this looks like a 1970's Reference 1550 Gold Capped (as @Timelord mentioned). Here is a good write-up on the 1550: https://www.craftandtailored.com/products/1970-rolex-oyster-perpetual-date-ref-1550-gold-cap Personally, I've never seen a gold capped bracelet on one. That through me for a loop. Perhaps some of the resident experts can chime in more on that for you. Wear it in good health and welcome again!
  4. Just wanted to reiterate that it's great to see this level of comparison. Thanks brother!
  5. If you're CONUS, I would recommend Clark (nostalgia-2000) on ebay.
  6. Call me crazy, but wouldn't the userid of "HandJobDork" throw up a few red flags from the start of a transaction?... lol
  7. @LifeTrekker nicely done! Love that BSI dial. I'm getting bored with Dagaz's offerings. Haven't tried any of Yobokies yet. I'll definitely be on the lookout for more, especially if we're talking sub $50 - that's just comical. By the way, if anyone is looking for a solid end-link bracelet for these, the P210 Parnis bracelets on ebay are a great option.
  8. Thanks my friend. So, it seems like I would have been best served with one of these multi-5.3-6.0-7.0 case tube wrenches.... Thanks again!
  9. I purchased a 6.0 & 7.0 Clark Case Tube Wrench off the Bay and it's too big for my Athaya 702 Tube... Any ideas which wrench will work with this tube? I did a little research and the Clark tool is for NEW style 6.0 & 7.0 tubes. The weird thing is, I can only find an OLD style 6.0 wrench though.... Oh wait, this old thread says "The 6mm case tube wrench works on both 6mm and 7mm case tubes, why they don't advertise them as such, really baffles me." Hmmmm..... so I wonder if an OLD style 6.0 Wrench will work on the 702 Athaya?
  10. I had a similar problem when I was cutting my first ETA 2824 Stem to length for a new build. I incorrectly figured that cutting the stem a little longer was not going to be an issue... When I screwed in the crown, the yoke slipped over the sliding pinion and the winder was stuck in the calendar position. I found the following video extremely useful. I believe it visually explains Matt's description correctly:
  11. Any reason you choose the REHAUT version vs the NO REHAUT version? Other than the insert alignment being off-center (which is an easy fix), looks fine. SEL recession looks good too, which is usually hit or miss on these.
  12. Very interesting... A quick google search suggests that this houses a Ronda 505.24h movement with these specs. Unfortunately, the movement size and stem height don't bode well for replacing with a mechanical GMT, for a novice like myself: Size (Ligne): 10½''' Stem Height: 1.50mm
  13. I spent about 3 hours removing the burs on the JF bracelet and clasp when I received mine. After that, it felt much better. Lug holes and SEL bracelet would look great. That would put you in the more exclusive 2001 - 2003 range?
  14. Looks awesome! I still need to pickup a No Rehaut version to swap my serviced Yuki 3135 into. The SEL fitment on my JF (older rehaut version) is less than stellar, yours looks great! Why the Yuki clasp? What didn't you like about the JF clasp?
  15. Thanks brother. In my line of work, it's not always in my best interest to show up wearing a Rolex / IWC / Panerai on my wrist... I love these because if/when asked, I can pull the "it started life as an $80 Invicta" and anyone with basic mechanical experience and a little patience can design and build their own semi-custom version. Also, getting comfortable with these makes me far less scared to work on the $900+ Yuki 9411 case/dial that I have on my bench currently.
