Old WM9 as base for a new 16610 build

Recommended Posts

Hello Gang,

I decided to build up a 16610 Sub with different Parts that I collected.

As base I take an old WM9 Case that I had laying around for years.

So I reshaped, satin and polished the Case like new.

Installed a gen Tube and Crown.

The bezel got a gen Insert.

I installed a gen Crystal but it had some small spots on the bevel, so reinstalled again.

Movement is a nice VR 3135 with gen

Datewheel.

The bracelet is a completely new 93250.

The Dial and Hands comes from a JF.

Here is the result.c64e5aabe284473ca49f207e3ac52a67.jpgc539d0eec27e5acbc642a4ba1296b7c1.jpgd81b97599945f6c4625ec7a0c11002a9.jpg04e4f155a19d38d95da8a83fce61871e.jpg

 

Next step will be a TC KH Dial and gen Hands.

 

Hope u like it.

You can't beat those old 16610 rep cases like the last run of the MBW(Ks), WM9, TWBest. That's a beautiful watch Tribal! 

This is a late MBW with the gen like bezel construction, a WM9 dial and hands, and a TC 93250

It also has the drilled lugholes which are hard to see in this photo

This watch has a swiss eta- they're getting harder to find these days. But alas I'm on to a 16610 with the SH3135- as soon as it comes back from NY.

Beautiful! Go the other Route and take a VR3135 movement, much better.In meanwhile I build a 16610LV and a 16800 too on a WM9 Base both with VR3135 installed. 33dd16389f0e5dd555d6171369a86e59.jpg&key=208e1ec9dfe0a229798ad62d4d725fe5901c3e25a33c9ddaca9730548b208b678461d10b412fea28d5bccacf49d6ff9b.jpg&key=67fc3021fb31598d358b5d943a6d604b81efd3ffb0d0cd288c921cbb9fa30f512ca665341f3bbd3d0653445f4a0d0188.jpg&key=6e2c0ef8cbcb5bffb3a3de45b61d48fa77dc6430ccd7a517e3011d20319bf49a5fea8ceca91825d49f1a65e91f095954.jpg&key=7037857018e9a1a9911418ff4ae2b651c6e3f1611ba8f4874054b9f5c82d8f6c4e336da2ccf1bedaf9155b2c526d8251.jpg&key=24863011708b6b8c875a4c3614e9ac4b686d5a6caf4add955668ee8a738e2b5218a3e985c4aaa614be82e5d5d7ad8ac3.jpg&key=c6e66f2ae606fb5468832c37ce2a93ea4cf4aa511c9ac438306c1a5bdb45480094856f4f85ed4aa5ff21d7234deb5892.jpg&key=b0bc4af93355ee6126b1498f35d7afa3d15c94795e22099c131bdcf8c16824b5
