I'm definitely interested in seeing how this build turns out, as you are doing almost exactly what I plan to do when I order one.

Why not use a Glidelock SubC-clasp... They're so much sweeter?

But this wouldn’t be correct on the 5 digit model right?

Of course not. However it extremely comfortable and close to gen-ones arent more than 50€.

You have a great project build here mate but be careful if you buy a gen bracelet for it...I installed a gen bracelet on this JF 16610 and the end link had not exactly the same shape, the gen SEL was a bit too short and really thinner than the rep SEL....the red arrows show you where it is different(thinner) than the rep bracelet !

Thanks for the heads up!   The rep clasp is terrible so I at least need to upgrade that.  

Any experts chime in on how much better a tc v7 case is on a build like this vs the JF 16610?

What about a gen Rolex datewheel for the SH3135? Seems like I've read about a lot of people making that swap.

It’s not better. It’s too square on the CG and needs to be modded to fit SH3135.

It is worse. The 3135 and 3135 clone fit loosely in the case. You have use really long movement tabs and bend them in a weird shape to secure the movement in the case. The JF is much better in this regard plus it is engraved between the lugs.

 

I have this same version in transit to me. After owning 3 of these JF's and going crazy on one build upgrading damn near everything from the dial, crystal and insert, crown etc.., I have found that for me, the only upgrades this needs is a gen datewheel and a gen insert. Everything else is good enough for me.

I used a TC clasp for mines because I had it but I didn't have any issues with my other JF when I was using it. Whats your issue with the clasp?

I agree these JF are pretty good base... you can sink a load of $$ but really they are good enough with a little fettling.

It’s just pretty rough.  Doesn’t want to stay closed all the way etc.  gen clasps are outrageously priced so i May just keep it

Yes but it doesn’t matter as it will be getting a full movement service and gen datewheel

Hmm... my last one was hard to open. Especially after I cut my nails. lol

 

I agree. Used gen clasps are OLD are over priced.

Try to curve the tips a little bit on the top. That way it snap closed before putting the flip lock

Add a gen datewheel to your list. The JF one is horrid.


I don’t think you need to spend $150 on a gen date wheel, you can get an awesome aftermarket one on eBay... but bear in mind, the gen or aftermarket datewheel will need a very fine sanding to match the JF datewheel size, else the quickset date function won’t work.

which aftermarket one is that? I saw a few on the bay and that doesn't look half bad.

Ok, there have been a number of examples from some modders, misiekped included, where the quickset date function did not work with the gen or aftermarket wheel. I am in the process of fixing mine, due to this issue.

I believe the adjustment is very fine. So it’s unsurprising there may be examples where the gen date wheel goes straight in and works.
