    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.
  3. 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.

    Ordering watch parts from TDs

    Okay, thanks for the quick answer. I will try my luck and see if I can find the parts I need

    Rep quality overview?

    My excuses for the too generic initial post. Currently I'm looking for two different things: - A new (higher quality) band for my noob submariner 116613 (silver, gold) - The best milgauss 116400 rep (I don't mind buying different parts and then putting them together myself) I saw that a lot of people like the quality of the ARF milgauss but others preferred the JF overall. Because I haven't seen the gen watches, I wasn't quite sure where to go from there.

    Rep quality overview?

    Good evening, I was trying to find out which factory makes the highest quality reps but unfortunately the amount of information just was a bit too much. How do you guys go about finding out how the quality is? Is there an overview that factory X usually has good steel whereas factory Y has better watch dials? What I did until now is find a watch I like, see if a TD has it and then try to find as much information as I can about it here and on other forums but there are barely any comparisons between two or three factories if all offer the same watch.
  7. Good evening, Does anybody know if it is possible to order only parts of a watch (for example only the band, the crown, etc.) from a TD? I have some parts that I would like to replace and I don't know if it's possible or if it's cheaper to just buy a new rep and use those parts.
  8. Good morning, I was considering to buy a gold plated rep as a daily beater but I wasn't quite sure how the gold would hold up. I read a few other threads which all were a bit older and they said that the first signs of wear and tear set in after a few months. I was hoping to wear it for the next year or two. Is there someone here who has more experience or knowledge about that topic? Maybe even someone who uses a gold rep as a daily.
  9. Good morning, I've been looking to buy an IWC chronograph automatic and I saw some with an ivory coloured dial. Unfortunately I couldn't find more information on this version. Is it just a normal chrono with a discoloured dial or is it some special version? I attached a picture of the one I saw online.
  10. I gave it another try and one side clicks in without a problem and the other just doesn't want to no matter what I do. I will check tomorrow in the morning again when there's a bit more light and see what's wrong with the side that doesn't click in.
  11. Good morning, I was wearing my Submariner and wanted to take it off for the day and suddenly a clasp pin fell/jumped out. (see attachment) I thought it wouldn't be so hard to just put it back and glide it in so it locks again but for the love of god I can't get it to just click back. Is here someone who had the same problem? And is there a trick to just get it back?

    Looking for a 50525 with brown dial

    I already feared that it would be an issue.. Ok, I will try my luck and write an email or two. Thanks so much for the quick response.
  13. Hi, I'm looking for a 50525 with a brown dial (the everose gold one) but unfortunately I couldn't find it yet. Does someone know a trusted dealer that may have it?
  14. Thanks to everybody for the warm welcome, I already had contact with some members and everyone has been helpful and friendly. I will definitely enjoy it here.
  15. The v2 looks gorgeous, thank you for sharing the review and the pictures.
