The 1675 gmt Thread, post em pleas ;)

Recommended Posts

I thought we could post our vintage 1675 gmt watches here. So everyone that are intrested in building one can see how nice they can be with gen and rep parts.

So here is mine. Its a rolexaddict build, gen plexi, shaved crown gards (pointed), yuki dial and hands (relumed creamy/vanilla), small thin and sexy long gmt hand (not easy to find), gen springbars, smoth and very nice jubilee bracelet.

The first 5 pics is of the yuki gilt dial all other pics are with the new yuki dial v2 (its out of stock now)

Kinda, it was on older version that really was crap. So I scrapped the entire project and went a prototype route, see my sig.

Now being in the same boat again, I've got the Yuki case and Jos 1675 donor to work with so far.

I picked up a service dial Mk5 with luminova (brand new dial NOS stock from 2000)

gen Insert (blueback)

gen crown and tube

gen 116 plexi

Im still looking for the gen caseback and case if I can find one at a decent price, until then the yuki case will have to work.

When posting watches or parts, could you please post the origin too?

So e.g. 1675 Trevor ootb - ... gen bezel - ... TK mod of ...

Just pictures of different watches without origin of the parts are some kind of meaningless...

Hopefully I will be able to post in this thread sooner rather than later as I'm going to start collecting a few parts then get one built.

I'm so looking forward to it. These are amazing watches. :)

Love the strap zk looks real nice but I do have to agree with bigj as i to prefer the metal straps but still looks nice buddy :)
