  1. Hi, I was wondering if someone knows where to buy vintage dials from other brands than Rolex. I already found yuki, Ruby and some other sites but they usually only sell Rolex dials and cases. I'm specifically looking for Patek or Vacheron dials. I already checked eBay but some of the dials cost a bit more than I can afford so I was hoping there are manufacturers still selling dials and cases.

    Looking for Patek model

    I contacted trusty, puretime and toro but unfortunately none of them had the stainless steel one available. So if someone sells it or knows where I still could find one (even only parts is ok by me), please feel free to send me in the right direction

    Looking for Patek model

    I searched around a bit and found the threads by rolojack and ubiquitous. For the interested: Unfortunately the ubiquitous build does not have that many pictures anymore.

    Looking for Patek model

    Apparently I can't edit the original post but after some more searching I finally found the original post: It is a Vintage PPCo 130 with genuine dial, hands, crown, etc.
  5. Good morning, I've just stumbled upon a picture I saved from the Wristies thread a while ago but I can't find out which model the watch is. The watch is absolutely stunning and I would like to know if it was a custom build and which exact Patek model it is. Are there reps that come close to the genuine? I tried a Google / Google Image search and the Ref. 130 came close but all the ones I could find were in yellow gold and not in stainless steel with gold hands. I tried searching through this forum but I couldn't get the exact model either so I hope someone can help me.
  6. My main issue was that the pin that came with the watch originally was a bit too thick and the ends were not fitting correctly into the holes / slipping out. I bought some new pins from Aliexpress, it clicked in directly and since then I didn't have a problem with the watch anymore.
  7. Thanks for the quick response, went ahead and ordered the SS JF v3 15400 with a white dial from trusty
  8. Good morning, I was thinking about getting the yellow gold royal from JF. As far as I could read the JF are currently the best you can get but I was wondering about the yellow gold plating. How close is it to gen? It would be my first AP so I wanted to get one with a good quality. I could only find one version of that watch, how does it compare to the SS V2 or V2? (blue dial) Already thanks for the help
  9. Good evening, I'm looking for an IWC portofino automatic, preferably with the brown leather strap and the white dial but without branding (iw356504 or iw356517). Does somebody know where I can get a watch like that? It would be nice if it came with an asian eta or miyota movement. A lookalike would also be ok, as long as there is no branding on it. I tried searching the web for a bit but only could find watches with the brand on the dial and the caseback.

    Looking for good bracelets

    Yes, I meant closer to gen finish. I had a chance to compare the Milgauss to a gen and the bracelet, especially the clasp, felt a lot better on the gen. There was also a noticeable difference in the crown and the stamping in/on the clasp. I was thinking about ordering an ARF and comparing it to my current one but I also wondered if there are maybe other manufacturers out there making bracelets that are closer to the gen.
  15. Good morning, I currently have a BP Milgauss (116400), Noob Submariner (116613) - both reps- and I'm not quite happy with the bracelets. Are there higher quality replica bracelets I could purchase? I looked at used genuine ones on chrono24 and they currently are a bit too expensive for me.
