  1. 12 yr old rep FM Casablanca lady stopped working for 3 years. Thank you Legend for repairing and reviving it!!! Those in Singapore or near Singapore can look for Legend for top notch servicing and repair.
  2. Hello guys, Suddenly the crown on my rolex submariner replica won't screw in, it gets tight when im screwing it in, but not enough to hold it in place, and as a result it will just spin forever. I've done some research and it looks like the tube is stripped, or at least that's what I think. I'd like some guidance in order to fix it / replace it. I'm a complete beginner when it comes to repairing or modifying a watch, so I have no clue what tools do I need, what replacement parts will fit my watch, and where to get them. If there's anyone who ha
  3. This is a genuine Revue Thommen Quantième moonphase timepiece, my very first serious timepiece which I have procured in the grey market more than a year ago. It had arrived DOA, and after sending it back to the the grey seller and Swiss manufacturer for repairs (the latter being a regrettably costly move), the watch came back still broken! As such, it had sat in my dry cabinet for more than a year while I acquired several other timepieces along the way, mostly genuine and vintage watches. It might have been fitting to have had this review in the proper WUS forum, but I had gotten
  4. I am about to get a good deal (I think) on a Used Pan Luminor 6595. The catch is that it needs repair “The set level is broken. It is on the first module of the watch, which is the chronograph module”. Can anyone tell me if this is a catastrophic issue or est cost to repair? Thanks in advance. Chris
  5. Hey Guys, I am new to the site and I have a question maybe someone can help me out. I have a replica Rolex that I have had for around 5 years. I do not know how the replica market works, but the one I have is of good quality. Never losses time, and just an overall nice piece. A couple weeks ago I was winding the watch and out of no where the stem came out as I was twisting it. I was so upset, so I have tried doing some research on getting it fixed and came up short. I don't know if there is a way I can get it repaired or is it even worth it. I am attaching some photos t
  6. I'm in NYC and am looking for someone local I can use to service my rep watches.
  7. Hey there friends! I need some advice. I picked up a V3 Avenger and the bezel is very loose. Any recommendations on how to stiffen it up? Floss or something? Any help is appreciated. Rax
  8. So I have an Omega Speedmaster that I picked up a few years ago, I know that it is probably a fairly cheap version, and these reps in general are not very accurate, but I like it nonetheless. Not to long after I got the watch one of the pushers came off. I would like to have it repaired nd not just junk the watch. I'm more familiar with Vintage Rolex so I'm pretty much in the dark here. Any advice on the watch itself, as far as what model it is "based " on, getting it repaired, or possible mods/gen parts that can be installed would be greatly appreciated. Keep in mind that short of finding a p
  9. Hi, I have several gen IWC's and Rolexes that need standard service and I want to stay local. Please PM me your Chicago (or Illinois) based trusted resources. Thanks, -Muleplay
  10. Hello, I have had an IWC Portofino, from TrustyTime, with A2892 movement. A few months ago the winder was not working and I hear a tick every time a try to wind the watch again. If anyone has any helpful hints or know how I could fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  11. Hi guys, I bought this book recently and began reading. It has been great so far. But I have to ask those who are familiar with the book; since it was written decades ago, how relevant is it to watch repairing today? I'm sure there have been numerous advancements in watchmaking since then (I think it was originally published in the 60's), but can this book still serve as a good introduction to the craft? It has been reprinted as recently as 2008 so I'm guessing It does remain somewhat relevant.
  12. Long time lurker, first time poster here. And yes, before you ask, I did a search and looked in the repair/mod forums before posting. I simply didn't find anything particularly useful. That said, do any of you know of a good repair facility in the DC/NOVA/Baltimore area that is willing to work with replicas? I've dealt with Yakov at the Clock & Watch repair place in Kensington, but he didn't do a particularly great job, and I've got another replica that needs to be serviced soon. Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers, Nitz
  13. Hi Guys- I recently purchased a PAM 504 kervarsit rep from someone on this forum and the crown has already fallen out! I know KW's is a TD and a good watch to buy, but I have very little mechanical knowledge of watches and am new to the forum along with buying this type of watch in general. Below are pictures of the watch and crown. All I am looking for is if anyone knows how to fix this issue or can explain to a noob what happened! Thanks
  14. First off, mucho props to members of this forum. I am new to it and want to thank you guys for keeping me to 3 AM for that last couple nights. I could use some help in finding a reputable repair shop/watch guy. I need a repair on my Rep GMT Master II and a service for my Rep Daytona. I'm willing to ship them anywhere in the states or take go to a local shop/watch guy in Los Angeles. I am also patient, so I don't mind waiting for the right shop/watch guy. Thanks in advance for the help
  15. I could use some expert advice on removing and replacing the Ceramic Bezel on my 116613 SUB TT with Swiss ETA 2836-2, purchased from Andrew. One of the link screws came out and the watch slid off my wrist and hit the pavement almost flat on the Crystal. Not a scratch other then the Ceramic Bezel Pearl Dot broke off/shattered and a piece of the Bezel came with it. I temporarily glued it back on with a tinny dab of super clue. So I ordered a replacement Bezel from Andrew.....and here I am let me qualify that I love this watch! keeps great time and looks awesome! Need the Help on: 1) G
  16. Hi everyone, A few months back I bought a used Rolex Explorer I from chiman12. The transaction went great, and the watch that arrived was absolutely gorgeous, and in perfect working condition. My thanks to chiman12 for sending me such a great watch at such a great price. Anyway, fast forward to last weekend. I was at a wedding, and must have bumped into something, because now the watch is making a funny noise, like a part has fallen loose, and is tumbling around inside (sounds like it is scraping against the caseback). The good think is, the watch itself is still keeping time perfe
  17. Month old rolex prohunter GMt from Andrew at trusty time glass keeps popping out...lucky to have found it each time but is getting very frustrating. Any tips on best way to secure and keep it in place? Any hop/ideas will be greatly appreciated.
  18. I bought a Breitling Superocean Abyss in June, 2011. I used it a lot the first year, ie more or less a daily beater. Shortly after it stopped, and I used other watches. I brought it to Thailand and got it repaired, the repairman didn't say a lot and I hoped he had changed the movement. Didn't get an answer and he said of course " a year" and I thought sh.t! The watch went perfect not slowing or fastening, however after a month it stopped, then going 2-5 sec and stop for some sec and going for some sec, etc. When I brought it to repairman in Thailand he said it had had a shock. I did not use
  19. First of all, can I hashtag a forum post? I think I just did Down to business, I am having some s#itty luck with my Reps lately, they just seem to be falling apart. My latest issue is with my 116610 Submariner. The bezel pearl (which wasn't great to begin with ) has simply fallen out and of course I have no clue where it could even be, nor do I plan to look for it. Any idea where I can source a gen, or good rep pearl for this watch? While I like the look of a vintage sub that is a little beat up and missing the pearl, that look doesn't seam to suit this watch just yet and I would quit
  20. Im looking for someone to do some work on my Hublot BB and Panerai. They both keep stopping after about an hour. If anyone has any recommendations on a watch repair man please let me know.
  21. I'm not satisfied with my current watchsmith. I need to get the dial changed out on my ploprof v2 and I have no idea where to take it! Any NYC residents know of any good rep-friendly watchsmiths?

    I have a 5513 Sub that, for some reason, stops and starts rather erratically. I know this question probably would have been better in a different section, but I figured I'd ask it here because this seems to be the section with the most "franken" builders. This 5513 seems to be fully wound, and will run for like 5 seconds and then stop. Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with it, or who could fix it for me? Thanks in advance!
  23. I'll start by saying this, I am not very good at documenting my work but pictures are en route, I also made some Newb mistakes during the dissassembly that I may need help fixing.... alright disclaimers notwithstanding.... I performed my very first keyless works repair last night! This whole issue came about after I got frustrated with a crooked crystal on my DSSD, it has been like this from the time it arrived, over a year ago. I had attempted to press the crystal in, with no luck, in the past but had never taken a watch apart and certainly didn't try that a year ago with I got this watch
  24. Hey guys, I have a rep Breitling that has broken. The small hands have fallen out of their holes. (terrible terminology I'm sure). Can anyone recommend a repair place on here?
