      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. BTW...do a bit of searching on the forum, you'll find a rep friendly watchsmith.
  2. Rep bracelets are rough as hell when you get them. Not the TD's fault, it's the way they come. My spa treatment is an hour in an ultrasonic cleaner (£20 off EBay) then put in a Ziplock bag with baby oil overnight. Really worth the effort. Enjoy your DSSD!
  3. I ordered the same from Andrew. QC was emailed quickly and got the watch in 5 days from date of order. Great TD. Crown on the rehaut was off a little but got a local guy to service and fix. My advice.....get a good service done as soon as you get it. Also do a spa treatment on the bracelet. After a clean, 24hrs in baby oil and it's super smooth.
  4. Bob vs rep strap

    Not a Breitling rep strap. I got one free with a watch and it lasted a grand total of 3 days on the wrist before the stitching came undone.
  5. Using an automatic as daily watch

    Go for the automatic. I have worn gens and reps for the last 15 years. Agree on the 2836 movement. Pretty bulletproof with my use and you can always find a rep friendly watchsmith. Enjoy your watch!
