Just received my first noob.

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody.

 

as a newbie on the site thought I’d better share my first purchase. 

 

I got the new noob v9 submariner today with the Swiss eta movement.

How much extra did you pay for Swiss eta? And how much is the box?

Not a bad price with a Swiss eta. May I ask where did you order it?

Hi, 

its from a private contact who deals in gen watches but promised he would get me one. He said I paid what he paid. 

I tried to buy from toro,s site but it wouldn’t accept my card.

Wear it in good health.

What's the box for?

Sandwiches?

 

Thankyou, and I will be wearing it. I was surprised it came in the box, I only wanted the watch 😂

That's pretty cool - box is always a nice plus. 

 

Did they send you pictures to verify that it's a Swiss ETA and not a clone?

That is a ETA clone. Not a swiss eta. Notice the lack of markings on the rotor and under the balance.

Sorry man, that's a chinese clone.... No ETA stampings and the inner caseback engravings aren't that great....

I don't know what stock$ you put in the fancy box but you over-paid a good bit my man. Sorry :(

They are not a direct or easy swap. You will run into problems with the stem height. Also the hands won’t swap over and the dial won’t fit unless you remove the dial feet.

There are no Swiss ETA movements available to rep makers.

Surely by now the message has filtered down.

 

Broken movements, spare parts....reverse engineering ...in reverse.

It's still a perfectly fine rep, with a nice box. Enjoy it and I admire your attitude about learning. Believe me we've all made some costly mistakes I'm sure - I know I have

Thankyou, Iv just got into the reps within the last 2 months. I own a few gens, Rolex Breitling tag etc. Learning each day about reps. I love the sub I purchased and just got another but the hulk. 

 

I will I’ll be keeping my eyes open for any modded ones also with upgraded parts. 

 

Many thanks.

Thankyou and appreciate that. It’s a great site and lots to learn. Made my first buy on the site yesterday of a sub hulk so can’t wait to get that.
