bluesme519 posted a topic in The Rolex AreaHi guys. I'm just a newbie who just wrote some newbic questions for a few times. But those stupid questions are answered by friendly experts of this forum and thanks to that, I could complete my 1016 build. It was just sudden that I just fall in love with 1016 although I didn't even know if there is a watch like that before I enter this forum. I took a look at 1016 pics around this forum and google, I wanted to have both leather and folded 7836 bracelet. My 1016 build spec is as follows. Case - JMB Crown - Rep provided with JMB case set Crystal - provided with JMB case set Dial - Yuki Hands - Yuki Movement - Clone 2824(Seagull) Bracelet - Josh JMB was communicative and he is the one who answered my noob question for the most of the time. I appreciate that Justin. PM him if you want to inquire any good quality case for datejust or exlporer. -JMB : http://www.rwgforum.net/user/24124-jmb/ I'm not sure Yuki's dial and hands are correct enough but I can guarantee that they are well made with sharp&vivid printings. Lume is not bad but not superb neither. I'm saying maybe because I compared my 1016 to seiko divers which has super hyper bright lume -Yuki : www.yukiwatch.com Seagull 2824 clone movement has very beautiful decorations which is always good to have. I've heard they are reliable if I give it a good service regulary as most of other eta clone movement. -An Ebay seller : http://www.ebay.com/itm/321467374718?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Bracelet from josh has good quality and I have some good news for you guys which is not the happiest news for me. I bought the bracelet from josh and I proceeded my purchasing of Aussy spring bars and WSO 580 endlinks because I've heard they fits well with jmb case. Moreover, I heard that endlink of josh's bracelet doesnt fit well with jmb case. So I odered bracelet from josh and also ordered wso580 endlinks and aussie spring bars. However, Josh's bracelet came to me earlier(actually I didn't even received spring bars and 580 endlinks yet. I'm in South Korea which is close to hongkong) and I found that they have really good fitting with jmb enhanced case. It fits without any modification and I just cannot find any unbalanced point. it just fits good. -Josh : www.pf-818.com -WSO : http://www.ebay.com/itm/171022393380?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT -Aussie spring bars : http://www.ebay.com/itm/351011434208?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I posted links of each parts for future-coming noobs like me as they would be helpful. now, let me show you my 1016. Photos will tell thounds of words.
It was about a few weeks back, LHOOQ and I were discussing Speedies, 1016's or Daytonas...I don't remember. Finally we ended up talking about the "Cartel 7836" bracelet and how well it's replicated, considering the competitors and price. LHOOQ made a nice write-up about it www.rwg.cc/topic/120850-rep-7836-bracelet-photo-review/ He also took a look at the "Yuki 7836" www.rwg.cc/topic/141396-a-look-at-the-yuki-7836 Both show severe problems in the, what I call "connecting link area". They are both weirdly bend in the middle instead of being smooth like the normal middle links. First time I noticed it, never had been a problem for me, probably because I didn't really read his thread attentively Now it was bugging me though. On my 1675: Apart from the angular shape and boxiness of the clasp, the slightly wrong coronet placement and the oversimplified link that connects the bracelet to the clasp, it's a stellar bracelet. These faults are not as visible and instantly noticeable as the "connecting link"! So there we were...I'm not a modder, but have access to very good goldsmith tools - a bit advanced to the average watch working bench. It took me a while to figure out a way to modify the existing links, since I don't have the time or tools to machine completely new ones. (Which is probably easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy for JMB ) Anyways, I thought manpower is the way to go... I'm now sharing the almost complete result. (I need to polish it once more and then brush finish it, but it will be two weeks, until I have access to the good tools again and I'm just to excited to wait ) All gen pictures are for reference only and used from their original host location. It's a bit of a dull rainy day, therefore not better light in the pics. Please let me know your thoughts Is it an improvement? Do you think it's necessary or not? Akira
