  1. Thanks for the quick response, went ahead and ordered the SS JF v3 15400 with a white dial from trusty
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  9. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
