    yuki 16800

    I'm still working on mine and Duke's. I'm ok with partial lume on an early matte dial. The line currently on the dials is bright for a good five minutes or less after sun exposure and visible for another hour or so. I did the hands to match. The lume inspiration came from Ubi's 1665. Where it's white but just tarnished enough. The lume that came with the dials was very good as a visual point of reference.

    34mm Reps

    Because for 800 you will get one that is 50 years old and looks like it is 80 years old and has probably been tempered with by people who don't know what they were doing. Then you send it in for a service and pay another 800..

    34mm Reps

    Are there any decents reps of 34mm Rolexes, specifically the Oyster Perpetual Date Ref 1500 or Oyster Perpetual Ref 1002. I really like this 1002 with gray (or slate, not sure what Rolex official calls this color) dial and this 1500 also with gray dial http://www.ebay.com/...t=Wristwatches. No-date preferred because I've read the cyclops magnification on reps is usually noticeably less strong than on gens. Some reps I've found: Smooth bezel version of http://www.1-pc8838....362-p-1223.html Dial color seems a little off, but I noticed the colors don't seem right in most product page photos compared to the provided QC pics (compare the blue dial in http://www.1-pc8838....362-p-1648.html vs. http://imgur.com/a/ruRCw ). Another problem is it's listed as 37mm, although hopefully that includes the crown. Others: http://v.yupoo.com/p...atch/139243348/ No cyclops http://v.yupoo.com/p...atch/139240084/ Magnification seems off Do these reps exist or maybe I'm too picky?
  7. My question is will the pbdad service to the steamed up movement make perfect again
  8. Well I paid 215 dollars just three weeks ago what do you think I could get for it
  9. hmm i wouldnt say the insert is gen but its hard to tell the details from the pics, pearl looks great tho. crown doesnt look gen either maybe a TC or wm9 crown? MBK dial hands are aftermarket for sure, possibly yukis
  10. Nice watches and as said earlier you have great photografic skills. Carpe Diem Cats
  11. Now i know were the term Franken comes from. It will a lot nicer on a black nato btw. Carpe Diem Cats
  12. I'm Jealous looks fantastic! Mind sharing the build ?
  13. Why would that matter? Gens of both use the 3135, so the gens should have identical date window position. Reps probably do too. I can't imagine that the factories print a different DWO for DJII reps than they do for Sub reps
