  2. The Noob and His Rolex Build.

    Parts arrived. The dial and hands fit nicely into the case. The aged lume looks the part. Very happy Just waiting on the movement and broach tool to arrive Now I am looking for a Milgauss faraday cage that someone might have in their parts bin? Would you share a link to the broachtolls you bought ? Envoyé de mon Moto G (5) Plus en utilisant Tapatalk

    The big fear with reducing dial size is paint flaking. There are some threads. I believe members have had success by protecting the dial face and mounting the dial on a spindle such as a dremel, then holding sanding paper to the spinning dial. Slow, patient and very careful I would think. As I mentioned, ensure the chapter ring will not be hidden first. Do your research, take a brave pill, then go for it. It's not only about the chapter ring. The "TSwissT" @6 could be hiden and that would really be a pity. Envoyé de mon XT1068 en utilisant Tapatalk

    ... Ant printing more than 5000dpi makes puddles of ink on the decal paper ... True !!! I tried for weeks to print at 6000 dpi and/or higher def without being able to avoid puddles ... then I tried 4500/5000 dpi and everything was OK I should have asked you some advice sooner. BTW ... the idea of building and albino is slowly settling in my mind, so I will probably ask you some tips and tricks if you dont mind Envoyé de mon XT1068 en utilisant Tapatalk

    @JSebWC ... I've been searching the 6542's 24 hours hand but is seems missing ??? BTW if you want a low priced 6542 GMT dial you could try to make one with a copper dial and inkjet decal paper. It's tricky but not that difficult with Photoshop or/and Illustrator and a good printer. The most difficult part is the lume but you can have it done by a specialist.

  15. My first vintagize attempt

    Nicely done ... though "butchered" is almost an euphemism there. I'll add just one comment : "Next time you dive 2000ft down you'd better keep your watch INSIDE the u-boat" Envoyé de mon XT1068 en utilisant Tapatalk
