  1. My Vintage Rolex Collection The time has come to finally show you all my vintage Rolex collection. I love every one of them and still wondering about what should come next. Suggestions? Thanks for watching! - Sub007 Nr. 1: Rolex 16014 Franken Datejust (built by StoneP) Parts: Gen 16014 Case, Gen Tube, Gen Stem& 600 Crown, Gen Caseback, Gen Bezel, Gen Linen Dial, DWO (rep), Clark 25-135 xtal, 2834 movement, Rep Jubilee and ends (Riyi), Gen spec 2.0 mm springbars I´m a sucker for vintage rolex and the Datejust seemed such an elegant and very wearable watch, especially when wearing suits and cuffed shirts. Sourced this watch with StoneP who is just great guy with too many Rolex parts LOL. So when he wanted to get rid of some parts I pulled the trigger. But then the franken bug bit me and I wanted more, more and more...so while I intended to `just` buy GEN dial I ended up buying fully built Franken. But the result is just breathtaking, linen dial is something you have to see in real life and this is a 6 million gen case in pristine condition. Engine turned, I love it and at 36mm it feels so nice on the wrist. Found a very nice rep jubilee on the bay from Riyi002 (what a gentleman) and fitted some gen spec springs to it. Nr. 2: Rolex GMT 16700 (TW Maker with GEN Insert) So I just love this watch because it really adds colour to the black and white of Rolex Sports watches. The rep insert was really bad so I changed it for this GEN insert (required a new bezel as well). And now it looks and feels like GEN to me. Got this particular watch from Marvellous Replica (not sure if he´s TD here) but he is one of my favourite TD´s. This for sure is a keeper!!! Nr. 3: Rolex 5513 Franken Submariner Parts: Cartel 5513 case (Modded to a 1984 5513 by Rolojack), Helenarou Caseback, NOS Swiss ETA 2846, GEN ROLEX 5513 Spider Dial, GEN TUDOR Mercedes Hands, GEN ROLEX 5513 Insert, GEN ROLEX T-19, Aftermarket Bezel Assembly, Athaya 702 tube & crown, Yuki Bracelet and clasp, WSO 580 ends, Gen spec spring bars This was the one that got me all started with vintage Rolex in the first place. It has been discussed by my elaborately on this forum. And thanks to the great craftmanship of Rolojack and assembly and watchmaking skills of DR3M3L (Mod at RWI) this baby is now finished. Love the clean look of it and the gen spider dial is really making this a one of kind 5513. Nr. 4: Rolex 16600 Seadweller Parts: Stock BP SD with TC Dial, TC hands, TC insert, TC bracelet & clasp, GEN 704 Crown, Swiss ETA movement This baby originally comes from @OCCB2 who is by far one the greatest guys I ever met on the forums. True gentleman and went out on a limb to get this baby safe from CONUS to EU. It originally came with TC crown but fitted one of my 704 crowns as the TC kept slipping. And now it is a nice and steady beater with great lume, has date but no cyclops (so no issues LOL) and TC parts surely make this one badass rep that could certainly meet up with GEN.
  2. Dear all, before I start I want to thank this really nice community! I already bought some nice pieces here from some members and met some really friendly people - Also from Germany or Netherlands. Lots of support here!! I did not know that the scene would be so big in Germany too. Sorry to copy and paste that from my other two threads. But I am really impressed here! So this time no work log. I just want to show you my daily watch I bought from "dutchguy2" and of course I would love to read your feedback and I have one question. Specs: SSD V2 GEN crown CGs trimmed by Jackjo Bezel insert shaved by Jackjo Watchmaterial pearl installed by Jackjo Caseback and crown seal lubed by Jackjo Bracelet Lubed and buffed by Jackjo Relumed with Tritec C1 super luminova Movement serviced and regulated to +2 seconds a day First questions: What else should I change to GEN? I think this is already close to perfect. Might only consider a GEN insert with pearl. What do you say? The bracelet does not look as good compared to a GEN watch. What is closer to GEN? This? Any other ideas? I do not like the space between the links. Depending on the year of the watch I do not need to drill holes for the drill lug holes, right? So what are your thoughts? Any other ideas or hints or feedback? Thanks!!
  3. And another introduction for today Last week I received my "accidently" orderd ultimate superlumed Sea Dweller from Trusty Time Why accidently??...because I didn't even think about of ordering a Sea Dweller...but once I saw this beauty (whoever did that review I was reading...my wife hates you ) I couldn't resist This SD is pretty well made. The only flaw that came directly to my eyes is the crown...I already orderd one from TC The second thing is the bracelet...they put on a 93250...a TC93160A is on its way The watch runs like a champ with only 4sec + (Kello checked), is waterproof out of the box (100m they say...will let it being checked at Domis...) and has a pretty good PR of 35h Well...nuff said...here are the pix...
  4. Hi All, just got this new addition in a perfect service from Andrew (Trustytime). For the IWC I ordered together with this I was quite picky because of misaligned dials but also got a replacement and new qc-pictures after several tries. When it arrived after an eternally long, unsusual shipping time of over 4 weeks I have to say I am overly pleased with both watches as I did not go for the expensive ones this time and these are really good. This is the 16600 Classic Sea Dweller SS Black Asian 2813, ultimate, superlumed version which I took quite some time to choose: New Breed Nickle Plated Asian 2813 Automatic Movement, 25J, Highbeat 28800bph, Rolex Style Perforated Rotor CASE DIAMETER: 40mm THICKNESS: 14.5mm DIAL COLOR: Black Dial, Superlume White Dot Markers Waterproof to 100 m factory tested (a little bit less than the original but it should be enough....) I really have to say I think this Seadweller is my kind of watch, love to wear it, works 100% (certainly had a lucky day when ordering this) runs +1 sec a day (!) Want to wear this as a daily beater, either with bracelet or nato-strap and swim with it after applying Nyogel (Synthetic Hydrocarbon Gel) to the stem and post a review in one years time. These are the first pics, with time I will get better ones. Up to the pics now: The bezel is just one click off, didn´t notice it when taking the pics, adjusted it later.. Side by side with the 116610 Ceramic Submariner which was not my first choice because of too big hands and dots and blue lume, but I have to say it has also grown on me in the last few weeks because I had no alternative to wear and I really started to like it also, lets see what I prefer in a Year from now:) and finally a lume-shot of the 16600 Seadweller (bezel one click off on pic, its perfectly centered otherwise) Love the more classic 16600 design (same goes for the Sub) and with time...... This is a nice, solid watch, definitely and the lume is very good, pearl included. The rotating bezel has 1/10th of a mm play in it, 120 solid clicks otherwise, on the ceramic its a touch better, but that's nitpicking. The bracelet on the 116610 Sub is superior and adjustable. The diving extension on this one did not try it out yet . These new Seadwellers seam quite perfect to me the sapphire glass itself and the height/thickness look good, so I´d appreciate all true specialists to point out which flaws there are (datewheel?) and what is different (or similar) to the gen. Any comments from the Forum very welcome. Time is what prevents everything from happening at once . ~ John Archibald Wheeler
