      RWG NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!   04/09/17

      RWG Needs Your Support - upgrade to a VIP/Supporter membership! If you find your time here to be useful and (we hope) entertaining, we encourage you to become a VIP/Supporter member. This only costs £21 (a little under $30 USD dependent on exchange rates) per annum and all proceeds go towards our hosting costs and making RWG the best watch board around. By becoming a supporter you will also gain a number of benefits including: 1. If you subscribe during one of our VIP upgrade competitions (announced above the shoutybox on the board index page and also found in our competitions subforum), then you could win a nice watch (usually a high-quality rep). We run these competitions approximately monthly, so keep your eyes open for the next one. You will also get access to our free birthday VIP giveaways - you could win a strap, watch tools or even a watch (there have been some amazing prizes including gen Longines, Raymond Weil, Hamilton and Victorinox watches, along with various high-end reps!) 2. Early access to the Member Sales area (see the sales area for rules) and the ability to bump your sale to the top of the board periodically. 3. Access to the supporters-only section of the board. 4. Increased PM storage 5. The ability to change your displayed user name (once in a 90-day period). 6. Occasional discounts from some of our dealers (keep an eye on their subforums for special offers). PLEASE PM Greg_r to upgrade to VIP

  1. Tudor Help

    Thanks for the reply! So you would say this is the version closest to gen? http://www.tb-688.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=107&product_id=2600 What are the visible flaws on it ( compared to gen) - that can be seen without extremely detailed inspection?

    Thanks guys - is the 22j simply a worse movement? Aesthetically will The watches be the same?
  3. Tudor Help

    Hi all, Please could someone kindly help distinguish and outline differences between these tudor models? http://www.tb-688.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=107&product_id=1268 http://www.tb-688.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=107&product_id=2600 http://www.tb-688.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=107&product_id=981
  4. PAM Strap Size?

    Dear All, I'm looking at aftermarket straps for a PAM 111 I want to buy. Can someone tell me dimensions of the required size (24/24 vs 24/22)? Also, if someone know a rough length that would be awesome (I have 8 inch wrists).

    Stunning straps!

    Thanks, any others?
  8. Ladies Super Reps

    Hi everyone, There is a general consensus on the forum on some of the best reps out there - PAM's, AP Diver V7/8 and a few others. By best I mean closeness to gen (of course none are perfect...) I wanted to get my GF addicted to this world and wanted to gift her a super rep but am not sure what exact reps are considered to be the best (Ladies and v. small wrist). Please could anyone with experience pitch in. Brand is not necessarily relevant.
  9. Hello from your noobest noob

    I was in your shoes not too long ago. Excellent forum! If the guys helped you, you should consider a vip membership which lets you buy watches from other members. They don't cost much either (the memberships)
  10. First Gen Rolex Purchase

    Concerning the going to the AD and paying full price option is not exactly correct - unless that particular model is very rare such as the steel daytona. You can easily go to an authorised dealer and get anywhere between 10-20% off. This depends mainly on the dealer, some don't do discounts; others go up to 20%. Also browse in online shops to find a price which you should try and get close to from a dealer. For reference a friend got a €15k daytona for 13.5k. A different friend bought a ciellini for 20% off

    Rep straps are almost always poor, if you buy a $800 tourbillon the strap will probably still suck. Most get a custom one made from the forum.
  12. Best AP Diver

    Yes typo; however, question about v7 vs ceramic still remains. Whether they're the same standard
  13. Best AP Diver

    You get paid 4 times a year? do you want a job Just left uni Thank you for all the feedback. So the V7 JF is the way to go. Last question - the ceramic JF listed in my original link. Is that a V7? It does not have a model number
  14. Best AP Diver

    A V7 then. Do others back this?
  15. Best AP Diver

    Does the V8 not always come with an open case back (which lets it down)? And the ceramic, is that worse than the v7 or is it a v7 just in ceramic? I just noticed that the v8 is in fact not open back. But simply had it unscrewed on tb website. Is the only difference between v7 & v8 the decorated movement or are there other external features that are better?
