Some old rep pics of mine

Recommended Posts

Hey I found a folder in my hard drive that has some classic replica pictures that I've taken back in the day.

 

First there was this "ceramic" GMT that came out. It was pretty damn good rep. As a watch it's boring as hell though.

 

Third picture it's next to my gen 16710. Fourth picture has a NOKIA phone. The phones were a bit different back in those days too. Cheers.

 

I'll post more later.

Thanks.

 

Here are my franken Explorer II 16750's. Now I have the gen but these were DAMN good.

ByTor.... I'm taking a stroll down memory lane tonight on RWG... but it's incredible to see you're still active here.  Not sure if you remember me... But cheers my friend.  Hope you're well!

 

Best,

 

p.s. Amazing photos btw! I think I was around when you first took those!

 

pps.. That Nokia was no joke! I used to have a similar version in Silver!

Oh I remember you. Cheers man.

 

I was away for years. Now I try to  pop up every now and then. :)

 

Let's put more pictures. This was the freakiest rep I've ever had. Not very accurate as the subdial spacing can't mimic the Breguet movement they use in BTR's but the build quality was amazing.

 

I loved the rep so much that I bought a gen of this too.

I'm in various gen communities so I don't feel like posting my gen pics here. :)  But let's share more of these rep ones. I also had a correct hand stack version of this. Then I bought the gen and sold all these reps. Who remembers buying these from me and are they still running? :)

 

I sold this to someone. IMG_8365.jpg.901c33fc53c6c8873a39a6d5860910c2.jpg

This was Sub 16610 WM1. The first Sub that really, really was the SHIT.

 

In the second picture it's next to my gen GMT again and you see why this was a remarkable rep. It mimicked the genuine looking crystal / rehaut look very well.

 

I loved the V1.

I'm thinking the WM V1 was around 2010-12. 

There was V1, V2 and V3 as I recall. WM9 was after that. I was building an A serial MBW which I converted to gen bezel assembly around that time- got it from Chris at Eurotimez. I'd post a PIC, BUT IT'S TIED UP OVER AT PHOTOBUCKET AND I WON'T Pay THE RANSOM!

Come to think of it, there was also WM9- V-1 thru 3- maybe that's what ByTor is thinking of.

After that was the TW best 16610 from BK and then along came TC.

Then it was BP and JF

@alligoat: That watch in the picture was WM9 v1 (I think). At least that's how it was labeled.

 

TAG Aquaracer day-date rep 45mm. Very nice.

And one more 16570

Around the same time as the WM9-V1, there was this MBW which I got from Chris at Eurotimez. It had drilled lugholes and I converted the bezel assembly to gen like construction with some gen and aftermarket parts. Lastly I ditched the noobmariner dial and hands and swapped in WM9 dial and hands. Oh, gen crown and tube and a TC 93250 completed the deal. It goes swimming regularly. Drilled out the lugholes also.
