  1. Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sales

    That's an excellent thread, thanks All.
  2. BP SubC are not gen spec

    Gen parts are on completely different budget level, even the cheaper parts;) Here wanted to do the best of rep parts.
  3. BP SubC are not gen spec

    Their 114060 is closer to gen than V7. The case (rehaut, lugs, cgs), dial, hands, bracelet - are good. Bezel and insert are very bad, also clasp has nice shape, only complain it is polished.
  4. BP SubC are not gen spec

    This is kinda warning. BP makes marvelous dials, but if you ever thought about using Bp subc for the modding/frankening - just stop it. I had some problems with this watch as bezel click-bolts had rusted during the swimming, which made the bezel click non functional. I bought the new noob bolts and the springs, so also used this opportunity for replacing fantasy BP bezel with the v7 bezel and insert. I found v7 bezel+insert, even polished its scallops to make it more gen like. So to the installation now. It's possible to press v7 bezel on bp, but the bezel will not stay. It very easily pops-out. At the first time thought it is because I didn't press it correctly, but not - it pops-our every fucking time. I am not sure why is that, probably because stock bp bezel is smaller, more subtle, v7 is bigger and more massive perhaps v7 bezel makes bigger pressure and it pops up so easily. Don't know. Also bp xtal/xtal gasket is not gen spec. You do not press xtal into the gasket - there is no notch for that. You just place xtal on the case, around of all that you place the gasket - pressed retainer ring keeps it all together. So, I used a glue between xtal/case/retainer and this way achieved v7 bezel which does not pop-out. Still gives me nothing becausee bp and v7 inserts are different. I do not mean different font here, I mean inserts' diameter are different. You may say impossible with the naked eye but trust me, they are different. The biggest problem is bp xtal diameter is greater that inner diameter of v7 insert - so not possible to press v7 insert. You can press is one side, but not way for full installation - bp xtal just blocks the v7 insert. And you cannot install bp insert into v7 bezel because bp insert is much taller. If we consider v7 as gen spec - bp definitely is not this spec, it is its own fucking headache spec. Enjoy your BPs out of the box guys, modding makes not much sense.
  5. Hello from Colombia!

    Read my post again... I gave you the link to a website of one of the best (imo) dealers.
  6. Hello from Colombia!

    Hi there:) I can't help you with Carrera, but afaik this Aquaracer is a very good rep. V6F maker, do not look for MKF maker because they make incorrect 6/9/12 battons. http://www.ttw-1388.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=41_211&products_id=17638 http://www.ttw-1388.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=41_211&products_id=16985 Welcome and GL.
  7. Hello from UK

    Hi there, You mind me asking what makes you feel the current OPs are rejections?
  8. Hello from France

    Welcome mate:)
  9. Hello from Tennessee

    Welcome and enjoy the rep side.
  10. UK folks - report whis fucker

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Omega-Seamaster-Planet-Ocean-42mm-Orange-bezel-Men-s-Watch/253242338446?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 Watch out guys, the seller has good feedback but I am pretty much sure this is V6F miyota with a rep box. Emailed him about the omega cards and for the better photo of a balance wheel, but he disregarded question about the cards and replied with bs "it's too difficult to take that photo". Also his dating for 2013 is bs. Such omega should've come with updated wooden box and a serial in 9* mills. Serial 86* refers to the production in 2008 and we've already seen the factories like to use that old serial even for 8500 POs. He does not show the rep cards 'cause the factories like to put there a reference number for Constallation model.

  12. Relax. It's all fugazi it's a wazzy a woozy it doesn't exist, it's fairy dust..

  13. Tudor Black Bay Bezel Jewel Missing

    This is a pearl for older Tudor models. I think GenTle had in mind purchase of full, complete insert from HR and next remove that pearl and put it into your insert. This may be ur only way to go.
  14. Tudor Black Bay Bezel Jewel Missing

    You mean pearl - the item in the middle of the bezel' triangle? or the small part in the bezel assembly, the bolt responsible for bezel click? If that's about the pearl, guys already mentioned a good source for a direct replacement. You can also measure the hole and try to find a proper replacement pearl in WSO: https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=pearls&_ssn=wholesaleoutlet990&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.TRS0&_nkw=pearl&_sacat=0
