116520 - Another GenRepenstein with some modern tweaks

Recommended Posts

Currently the watch box has a surplus of "Super"-frankens. I wanted to show off a couple of them.

 

Case:

Midcase: Noob 116520 lathed crystal area, slightly lower rehaut height, removed rehaut engravings // Custom work by my friend. Let's say 200€ for midcase

Caseback: Preik crystal caseback (http://www.customwatchconcepts.com/product_info.php?products_id=22&MODsid=75b2f7f5e03adea50fe2fd679792efe1) 190€ (also have a gen caseback, not currently used)

Crown/Tube: Gen 704-Crown + Gen 7030 tube // 180€

Pushers: Gen 24-P302-0 // 350€

Crystal: 25-295 // 250€

Bezel: Gen 116520 // 500

 

Internals:

Movement: Gen NOS 4130 // 2800€ incl. service

Dial: Gen 116509 Panda dial // 1500€

Hands: Gen 116509 Panda hands // 250€

 

Bracelet:

Links & Clasp: ARF 116500-bracelet, refinished by me // 120€

 

Total: 6350€ (6750€ incl. gen caseback)

 

Pictures coming this afternoon...

Super-frankens are...just rep watches.  They're a trope in the rep world...designed to lure in the unwary.

So, be careful what you spend your money on folks.

The feeling of having Swiss 904L steel in the midcase and bracelet is definitely worth 12000€. So, be careful what you spend your money on folks.

You'll have a metallurgist report of course?

As a plain old engineer I can tell you straight out...Rolex don't have a bespoke SS...whatever you believe.

Exactly... You just stated some of the reasons for going franken and not gen.

I saved 12000€ by going with Chinese steel in the midcase and bracelet. That's 60% off.

Sarcasm over the internet is hard.
