  2. Complete noob needs advice

    Hi Wedders and welcome to the forum ! On the front page of the forum and in multiple section of this site you'll find sticky post, if you read them all (that not too long and very instructive) you will be able to answer most of the questions you could have. If not, feel free to ask your question after doing a bit of research on the forum using the search box.< Think about this sticky post like Wikipedia articles, they bounce to each other.

  9. Laser Engraver.

    You can on metallic surface, but it's a long pain in the ... and the result isn't even great at the end (If your laser hasn't fried in the process) If you burn your hand with a DIY laser project, you deserved it ! Yes, the main grief is the app, you can manage to make it work with other app, but in the end, this is more a toy than anything else.
  10. BP Ultimate SeaDweller QC pic concern

    It's your order, you have to be sure that everything is fine. If you want another angle, it's perfectly fine, in that matter you only have to be nice with the TD. On the other the TD has to put this in his schedule so it can take a little more time, perfectly understandable. For now I don't see an issue with your purchase procedure, it doesn't seem that your TD is not going to provide you a new QC pics, so I'd say everything is fine for you and him.
  11. hi from nyc

    Welcome ! Why do you want to sell all your reps ? How many rep are we talking about ?
  12. Any 3D print hobbists?

    On a FDM (Filament, the most frequent one) printer this could be hard to reproduce if you're not used to work with a tiny nozzle and small parts. With an SLA (Less frequent and more expensive) printer, it's a piece of cake to do such a piece. You can also find a printing hub near you or a maker space that can do this for you : https://www.3dhubs.com/ Or you can request the service of 3D-printing company like : https://www.shapeways.com/ But for the last one it'll cost you more, especially if they have to design the piece for you.
  13. Laser Engraver.

    Thoses laser engravers start popping on Amazon also. They are done by reusing old (or new) DVD/BluRay engraver for computers (you can see all the part if you look closely). They work very well but there's only one flaw : the working area, you are very limited in travel distance so you can't engrave big surface in one shot, you have to be clever about fixing and registering your workpiece if you want to move it to continue the engraving process. They can engrave pretty much any material if you find the right setting, leather is definitely an easy material for that. The software is crap but do the work. You can see various tests on YouTube with keywords like "Mini laser engraver" they are pretty much all the same in this price range. Depending on what you want to do, or rather how much you want to do it, you better off looking on Aliexpress for bigger models (even on Amazon but they cost more). If you are handy and have an old DVD Burner you can easily do it yourself there's a lot of tutorials on the web to do so, they require hardly any skills.
  14. There goes the neighborhood

    Welcome in here Wingy !
  15. ARF 36MM DATE JUST SILVER DIAL

    I can understand you excitation for sharing your QC pics, be sure to update your post when the watch arrived with your own photos.
  16. Hello from New Zealand

    Hi Tony and welcome ! If you've been checking this since 2014 you know what a nuthouse this is, be aware What type of watch do you like ? Have you narrowed down some ?
  17. New AP Diver V7

    Nobody's saying you asked a stupid question, but if you want to share the watch -which is a good thing- you need to show it with your own pictures, not the pictures the TD sent you.

    Hi you should read this :
  19. Disappointing threads.

    I'm a noob, so I don't if my point has any valour or meaning but I find it very nice a cool that this Birthday giveaways happens, even some open to all members, but I don't see the point of comparing this sort of threads with the others. For the plethora of DHG, that the great thing with a forum or any online content, you can pass if you don't like it. With a dedicated section, open to VIP/Supporter only you are pretty sure that you won't have too much posting and it's easy to ignore it. Where you make a point is that maybe we got a little carried away recently with a very fast deep into the madness even in regular posts (I'm feeling a bit responsible for that too). Section 8 is rather calm but should be a little more animated in there and a little less in General discussion. I don't see any opposing side between TD and DHGate sales, there's just not simply the same, I'll always order from TD when I want a great rep and with the gate when I only want some fun. I'm totally new to this game, for people used to the old prices, I'm sure the actual price of rep could seem a bit high. For me, seeing the quality of the rep, the number of details I don't find the rep game to be so expensive, I sure can't buy a good rep from a TD each month but that would be rapidly boring if I could. I like to hoard, but I like to take my time to do so, as you said, spice of life ! You and I are the noob of the moment (it seems !). I share the same feeling as you, I want to get involved in this board, but I don't want to postwore in good thread where I don't even have a good question to ask, or something to say. So I postwhore in useless threads I cannot agree more, if you weren't a bloody cunt, your post would be golden ! With the Euro to dollar ratio, for European customers, it's quite a good time to buy reps. I think this guy like you (us ?) Thommo ! If I buy a rep, it's because I want a rep of a watch I'll never be able to afford. For the look or for the prestige, whatever. You can't have all gen watch on the grey market for only 300 $ or so. Rep market is there for a reason. Amen ! I think this the closest of what I think (I know nobody cares...) Rep price is increasing, so does the quality and that's something I have read on this forum a lot. I have binge-read this forum, and the thing that come up the most, is the steady increase in the quality and fidelity of the rep from TDs. That has to have a cost ! You can find good rep for fewer than 200 $ and they can fool 99% of the people you'll encounter if that what count. I think this is a good thing that DHgate section is VIP/Supporter only, but maybe an Off topic VIP/supporter only could also be a good idea. Everyone comes into this game for their own reason, I respect people wanting something that I'm not interested in, I would really like they do the same with others like me. I won't go as far as your last sentence, but that made me laugh ! Thanks ! I feel the same, though I don't bother me to see that some folks happily enjoy this part of the game.
  20. Still trying to figure out, who those people are... guess round 4
  21. 7750 problem

    So... he need to take his watch to a car mechanic... Am I right ? Ok... I'm out...
  22. I don't remember the exact formulation but that was about that : is a rep waterproof out of the box ? Next person to post to this thread must say GFYS
  23. Hello to everyone

    Hi ! Welcome to the forum, hope you'll find yourself comfortable here. Don't forget to read the newbie thread even if you're not new in the Rep world Cheers.
  24. I also like both names, ASS would be quite fun, picture yourself saying just "He's a #4 on the ASS" ... I definitely would like some comment, reaction on my scale proposal, I'm too new here to be the one who decide alone, plus I like the community effort. BTW seeing the last posts above, it's clear, this place is doomed !
  25. PAM 026 destro PVD

    I'll be the first to greet you, but be aware that you are facing an imminent trial for your lack of reading in the forum : Pick a trusted dealer, look at the watch, ask him questions and order. Now let me seat myself nicely
