Greetings all! I've started on the road to building a 16030 franken Datejust and I have a few questions for everyone. And yes, I've searched, but haven't found anythign definitive. Every guide I've found so far uses a GEN mid case and I simply cannot find any that are affordable. I was planning on using the following: Rep Mid Case Rep Jubilee Bracelet Rep Crown Gen Dial Gen Engine Turned Bezel Gen ETA Movement (Undecided?) Clark Acrylic Crystal Clark Tudor Hands JMB or STONEP Datewheel Overlay I've already purchased the Dial and Bezel but I have some questions before I continue. I plan on removing gen dial feet and using epoxy to secure new dial feet in ETA position. 1)What type of ETA movement would be EASIEST to use with a gen dial, rep case and custom DWO? I've heard about issues with spacing between overlay and dial etc. 2)Will I need to change cannon pinion, hour wheel etc on the ETA movement no matter what? I've heard about issues with spacing with hands Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, if anyone knows where to find an AFFORDABLE gen case.....I'm all ears! Thanks so much. I will continue my build with photos in this thread as a future reference for any would-be builders out there.
Hi, I'm looking for a nice rep 62510 jubilee bracelet for my 16030 datejust build, I'm hoping you guys can point me in the right direction... I have looked on a famous action site, but they are all unmarked or gen, unfortunately I don't have the funds for gen... Thanks!
